Re: Well........

Sounds to me...like it was the Knight Commission, not the NCAA, who recommended going semi pro for the brand programs.

The Knight Commission is an independent, reform minded group...

Re: The Media and what they see

There is no clear path in basketball...if there was, one team seeded #9 -#16 would have played in the championshop game...Yes..you can buy into an illusion if you need to. Reality is what reality is..no Cinderella fairy tale. There is a clear path for me to be the first 73 year old MLB pitcher to pi...

Re: The Media and what they see

Since 2000, Ohio State is 42-0 against the MAC, CUSA, MWC, Sunbelt, and WAC (actually against all of their G5 opponents_)

....yet we want to pretend that they all play for the same national championship ?

Re: The Media and what they see

There is not another college sport like football...with only 12 regular season games.... As I have posted before, the regular season is part of the play off...Alabama-LSU, Alabama-Auburn, Georgia-Florida, Ohio State-Penn State, etc., etc. You will never, not ever, have a 130 team league purporting t...

Re: The Media and what they see

My wife and I have a pair of flying pigs as a garden ornament here in North Carolina...a private joke. We both came from really sad backgrounds (I won't bore you)...in fact, the first time that I spent a night under the same roof with my brother was three years ago...we were split up and raised sepa...

Re: The Media and what they see

Yeah..Spence.

If I pitched against the Yankees, I'd have a chance to pitch a perfect game...your definition of " a chance" is too broad for me.

Re: The Media and what they see

If I just spread my wings
I can fly
I can fly, I can fly
If I just spread my wings

That's us...Americans. We believe. We believe that we can carry moon beams home in a jar, be better off than we are...That all are created equal.

It is part of us....and colors our perception.

Re: The Media and what they see

OK Spence...how about a participation award? Put the names of the five best schools from the "non brands "in a hat, pick one out, and let them have a play in game with the CFP #4.....they then do "have a chance". It is all pereception anyway....Folks think that March Madness is i...

Re: The Media and what they see

They don't really recommend anything...just whine that college should be like the NFL....and you know what? College ball can not...it is a different animal for the reasons that I illustrated..

The article was a waste of time...more yak for the clicks.

Re: The Media and what they see

So the Browns go 0-16...and they get Mayfield as #1 draft chpice. This year, so far, they are 6-7....and it is the Bengals who are 1-12 and will get a high draft.

Re: The Media and what they see

The article that Mountainman posted lauds thr NFL's "diversity"...their spread the wealth in the Division Championships... How does that happen? How do more teams build competitive teams? A kind of Robin Hood action....the "poor" teams get the draft pick ahead of the "rich&q...

Re: The Media and what they see

Don't be obtuse or cute....I am not suggesting such. I suggest that the ultimate last man standing between LSU, Ohio State, Clemson, and Oklahoma be crowned. But...failure to impress vs the spread hurt Ohio State some in the CCG...as well as Oklahoma. And their performance against the spread against...

Re: The Media and what they see

Because I have always been interested.... SMALLEST DEVIATION FROM ACTUAL GAME SCORES (Entire Season) Deviation from the game score is the difference between the game prediction and the actual result. The Vegas Line topped the 72 computers followed in 9 of the 16 years in study. MOST ACCURATE STRAIG...

Re: The Media and what they see

Saw no real suggestion in that article....one man's click bait. College ball is not the NFL....there is no draft...no preset draft order... The day when a kid is told that Old Dominion has selected him because they were a loser and get a high pick, and he can not go to Ohio State, regardless of his ...
