Re: Divorce Court……..

Washington will lose to Oregon...(Vegas giving 10 points to Washington. The line for FSU has fallen to -1.5 against Louisville...with the Nole's primary QB out for the season,... and back up held out of practices for concussion protocol based on hit late in the last game. FSU could well lose this ga...

Re: Since the Powers That Be and The Profiteers…….

I have been on the WVU football board for over 20 years...have followed the Eers through the years. Way back in 1982, FSU played WVU in the Gator Bowl. My wife and I sat next nto a young couple from West Virgina and we chatted during that miserable game (it rained, a 40 degree wind was blowing off o...

Tidbit...

So far in 2023, a team favored by 7 points has won 88% of the time. Teams favored by 10 points won 92.5% of the time.

Re: I was beginning to believe the tail was wagging the dog…….

I agree...it is insanity to think that with 133 teams spread on a Bell Curve of strength that the bottom half of that curve competes with the top quartile... Akron and Alabama both purport to play for the same prize...as do Marshall and Michigan.. For gawd's sake, Ohio State is 18-0 vs the MAC since...

Re: I was beginning to believe the tail was wagging the dog…….

Sooo...basketball is different than football...wow Losses in basketball regular season mean little in comparison....basketball has 32 games before the tourney compared with football's 12 (unless you play in the conference championship, then 13) Other than whine that a team like undefeated Liberty (r...

Re: I was beginning to believe the tail was wagging the dog…….

The NCAA Tourney has been won by one of the top three seeds 89% of the time (over past 38 years)...

...the seeds 9-16 are just there for padding and the draw of the Cinderella story that we all love.

Re: I was beginning to believe the tail was wagging the dog…….

They have no destiny in basketball....you just buy into the illusion. Data is data...and the data says that they have zero chance....we just like the Horatio Alger story...it could happen, someday, maybe, if I lit a candle to St. Jude... They control zippo...or we would have a seed 9-16 with a stati...

Re: What Will $76 Million Buy You ..?

Jimbo just chuckles on his way to the bank...$76 million... with $19 million of that due immediately and $7.6 million a year for eight years...coaching money with no work, no pressure..and the payments last until he is 66..retirement. He probably said what Orgeron said at LSU..."When do you wan...

Re: I was beginning to believe the tail was wagging the dog…….

Liberty is 10-0 with a schedule strength of 133...think that they should play over a one loss team like Louisville with an SOS of 66 ? Or one loss Texas with an SOS of 8.

Or a pne loss Ohio State or Michigan ?

Football has a much more important regular season then basketball...almost evet weekend there is a elimination game....lose two games and you are out...lose one game and you might be (like FSU...they must beat Florida or they're out)

Re: I was beginning to believe the tail was wagging the dog…….

The NCAA basketball tournament sells hope and early Cinderella matches... No team from the second half of seeding...seeds 9-16 have any chance of wonning the championship..and none have (odds of 0 %)...the odds of a 9-16 to reach the Final Four are 0.7 %. THe Finals match..0 %. It is lunacy to belie...

Re: I was beginning to believe the tail was wagging the dog…….

Big difference between the best G5 teams and the top third of the P4... Take JMU...undefeated...but the only P4 that they have played on their schedule was gawd awful Virginia...#13 in the ACC standings...and JMU beat them by 1 point. The SEC teams that aren't Georgia (who is favored for conference ...

Re: Did Somebody Say Signals ..?

But...the players may have profited...is it fair for players of another team to maybe not make the playoffs because Michigan had a game advantage from their spy network ? Maybe they did. Sometimes a ref makes a bad call and a team gets an advantage from it. It doesn’t mean the team that got the cal...
