Highest-ranked non-CFP SEC team to the Sugar Bowl, per SEC spokesperson. https://twitter.com/SEC_Chuck/status/1196889344772132866/photo/1 The rankings don't stop the bowls from honoring their tie-in agreements, though. The Orange will have an ACC team even though one may not be ranked if Clemson beats Virginia.
NCAA's postseason ban resolution... kidding - typo on my part
UMass head coach Walt Bell answered Tool. Guess I'm a fan of the Fighting Walt Bells now.
Yeah, the hat seems like a stretch for a "unform" list. Presumably, Spurrier's visor was eligible as well.
PF said later in the show that he was expecting a more firm/hard denial from Moorhead. Those, of course, can backfire, Nick Saban being the most cited example.
In the video above, SVP talks about taking LSU (favorite) over Florida last week and takes Oklahoma as a big favorite over West Virginia.
FWIW - at the time Finebaum Show had not tweeted video (I transcribed off of rewinding DVR). The show tweeted video a few minutes after this published. The interview becomes notably less smooth when Finebaum pushes follow-ups. Extremely strange are Paul's words from the later segment. It did seem somewhat uncomfortable/awkward when PF pressed with follow-ups. Video of the interview is here: https://twitter.com/finebaum/status/1185292245932630020
A lower-ranked home underdog winning is considered an upset. The AP voters had Auburn higher entering the game. More money was bet in Las Vegas on Auburn as the favorite.
Sadly, I've never met Mike Gundy or his awesome mullet. ACC refs say there should have been a second. It was a controversial call to end the game. https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/sec-football/acc-admits-mistake-was-made-by-officials-at-end-of-north-carolina-wake-forest-game/
It's a controversial call when the refs admit a mistake and say there should have been 1 second. I recommend hydrating before making a foolish comment. https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/sec-football/acc-admits-mistake-was-made-by-officials-at-end-of-north-carolina-wake-forest-game/
Covering what SEC players are saying about their teammates is a pretty common August camp story for all 14 conference teams. https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/georgia-football/georgia-db-says-5-star-freshman-wr-george-pickens-reminds-him-of-bulldogs-great-a-j-green/
And Dansby Swanson could have made four. Quite a season he's having in Atlanta.
You're right. I copied from the list itself, but should have double checked. Thanks!
The GoFundMe donations are to support the site's investigation (records requests, legal counsel). It is true that investigative journalism usually needs financial backing. Usually that comes from a publication. Knight News is trying crowdfunding, a different approach.
Right. Corrected. Thanks. That's usually former Texas A&M/Mizzou players that cause the slip in language.
Awaiting decisions/announcements from RB Lamical Perine, WR Van Jefferson and edge rusher Jabari Zuniga.
Must have been a late surge of Crystal Balls. Looks like LSU closed at 62%. "Word" tends to get out right before or everyone follows a couple experts.
Right. The ex-girlfriend calls him a repeat sexual abuser in her statement, but I haven't seen anything about a rape accusation.
State Attorney chose not to charge based on the reports I looked at from Ball's dismissal. Title IX investigations, however, have a lower threshold to determine whether someone is "responsible" for wrongdoing (word used in Title IX decisions, as opposed to guilty/not guilty).
UF's current three-game winning streak (2018 season) - not Florida-LSU series related. Not intending any confusion.
I'm all ears. Why else wouldn't he release it?
Haha. Quotes are like that. I think he's saying everyone needs to be on the same page, but you're right about 11 blockers being too many.
Callaway's attorney has more or less declared war on UF over the way the case was handled and the fact he was suspended from the team while the accusation was being investigation. Fun stuff.
Stoops was incorrectly included. Article has been updated. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
I advise drafting Henry as well in the mid-to-late rounds. At the very end, I like the roll the dice aspect of Howard as a bench/flex option.
My bad. Got it from The Clarion-Ledger, which appears to have updated its article.
There's obviously a ways to go before fall camp, but if Zaire does transfer here, I would be shocked if he's not No. 1 or 2 on the depth chart when healthy. Trask throws a pretty ball, but he's not a quick decision-maker and doesn't handle pressure well. In the last few practices before the spring game, it was becoming quite clear that Franks was distancing himself.
Size of an athletic department (number of teams) and Title IX are factors in numbers of scholarships. USA Today's article is kind of a big-picture, national take on the payouts. They have a section talking about basketball schools without football programs voicing frustration. Football is obviously 85 scholarships.
