Re: MT West

If that's the case, then it's a totally stupid rule. Home field should be decided by conference record, then head-to-head as the tiebreaker, and then go down the list if they haven't played each other yet. I understand why the AAC, C-USA, and MWC have home field for the championship games. The teams...

Re: Praying for a sequence...will get Donovan to rant

Exactly, it's totally selective memory. Ole Miss gets thrashed by (Big 12-version) TCU in the Peach Bowl, nobody holds that against Ole Miss next year. They forgive and forget. Ole Miss can take care of business the following season and people will treat them like a demigod SEC program. A non-BCSer ...

Re: Coaching Moves

Why would the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, The Ohio State University, and the University of Tennessee hire a person who had that kind of baggage if it wasn't easily dismissed hearsay? You think they want that on their plate? Instead Tennessee didn't estimate the level of social media outrage of the week, a...

Re: Coaching Moves

I like how people who weren't there when things supposedly happen "just know" x, y, and z to be the case. To positively claim that Schiano covered that up requires intimate knowledge of the details, something zero of those protesters had. They just heard some allegations (and not even alle...

Re: Coaching Moves

This would be my annual post wishing June Jones would come back to college football, but he hates recruiting and took over a winless CFL team and actually posted a winning record after he became the interim head coach. So he's perfect for the CFL and Hawaii will never see Jones roaming the sideline ...

So Todd Graham is out at Arizona State. Kevin Sumlin will be the odds-on favorite to take that job, I'm sure. He's on track to get fired soon and he's always been on Arizona State's wish list. Which leaves A&M open and for some reason the grumblings suggest that they want Jimbo Fisher. I don't k...

Re: Praying for a sequence...will get Donovan to rant

I'm not advocating UCF to go to the playoff, I just think they belong in a NY6 game if they win the American. My point is that in those BCS/NY6 games, the mid-majors and the latter-day AAC actually have an extremely strong record. Because you're not inviting the MAC-as-a-whole, you're inviting the b...

Re: Tennessee vs Vandy

I think you're basically correct, Fluiddude, about the Tennessee job, but a great coach could resurrect that place. It's not like the SEC East is setting the world on fire right now. And with respect to Nebraska, I think the Huskers would be amazing with Scott Frost. But I agree there aren't too man...

Re: Blue vs OSU

Who wouldn't want to come to Michigan as a stud QB? Free playing time because of your awful competition at a prestige program and a great school on a team that is a QB away from doing some special things. I realize Michigan is now an afterthought since high schoolers can't even remember when Michiga...

Re: Blue vs OSU

There are some little birdies out there thinking Shea Patterson might come to Michigan. His family is from Toledo and are apparently Wolverine fans. Patterson has a great arm and is extremely mobile, would be an obvious and instant upgrade in the best way imaginable. He's exactly who I'd be looking ...

Re: Bama v Auburn

That's definitely good for Georgia's hopes. It's always easier to rebound against an opponent that you've already seen before and I want nothing to to do with Alabama, ever.

Re: Bama v Auburn

And they'll still give Bama the #4 seed even though, according to their own metrics, Bama's schedule wasn't stupid-hard this year in a down-ish SEC. Oklahoma or Wisconsin just lost out tonight. Ohio State might slaughter Wisconsin and save the committee the trouble, but they're prepared to leave one...

Re: Blue vs OSU

Peters wouldn't have won. We would have been 85% of the way there as usual, but fail to seal the deal on make-or-break plays. Same story. Spence thinks I'm joking about this, but you've got it made, because this will never end. At least not for the next 5-7 years. You can sit back and rationally exp...

Re: Blue vs OSU

John O'Korn is the absolute worst QB in the FBS. The guy will freeze when a play doesn't go according to script, his footwork is God awful, and can't see open receivers down the field. You guys thought I was joking about preferring UTSA's 3rd string QB, but I wasn't. :lol: He's seriously so bad, he ...

BB, you just strawmanned my position on this topic, as per usual. Go back and figure out where your logic erred.
