Re: 6--8--10--12--16

And it is a complete shame that a scholarship program instituted to help kids pay for school has been turned into this mess. The biggest problem with college athletics has never been with the kids, it has always been at the top and the NCAA represents the top, they have never worked for the kids. T...

But the truth is that coaches matter and Nick Saban is hard to beat if he has film on a team.

Re: 6--8--10--12--16

As long as these governing bodies continue to use a “bid” method of selecting teams to fill brackets there will be controversy and cries of unfairness, incorrectness, bias and “We were Robbed!!!” :evil: :evil: :evil: Simple solution……. Conference Champs verses Conference Champs and for the accounti...

Re: 6--8--10--12--16

If the "have nots" think there is a chance they earn more than one bid, ever, they are wrong. All this does is guarantee that Notre Dame has a spot every year and then make is possible to make sure no P5 conference is shut out of the playoffs. Looks like an incredibly political solution to...

Re: There’s A New Sheriff In Town…….

Fox's rise of late has less to do with the Big 12 than Fox's 2017 acquiring, with ESPN, of the Big Ten rights.....Fox gets first choice weekly and has been broadcasting the Ohio State-Michigan game and Fox also has picked up the Big Ten network...Fox refused to bid on the Big 12 championships game....

Re: Spring Is Here ...

I saw the spring game on tv. I didn’t try to go. I am back to coaching. We built a really nice indoor facility for the kids and we have also had three college mens and two college women’s teams also coming into practice during the winter months. (That is how we pay for up keep) I really never quit c...

Re: Watching with interest the goings on in College Football

I’m pondering which is the most correct analogy for the demise of the NCAA...... would it be Nero or Julius Caesar? Probably a combination of both, either way, don’t know if it matters. :roll: :roll: :roll: https://devastatingdisasters.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/rome-fire-64-ad-featured-713x330...

Re: Watching with interest the goings on in College Football

The problem I see with Image and likeness is that the big schools from the big cities can pay a lot for bringing in kids and that is a form of recruiting that is unfair. I don't have a problem with the kids earning money from their image or likeness. I just don't know how it can be handled without m...
