I'm going to disagree with having the Super Bowl in for the Best Game category. It was a pretty boring 3 quarters, followed by an exciting 4th Q. The college national championship game between Clemson & Alabama however, was pretty exciting all the way through.
There was friction between AU & Tuberville before saban got to tuscaloosa, so even that can't totally be attributable to him.
how are J'Mon Moore, Calvin Ridley, or Christian Kirk going to be poised to break out? They've each already had breakout seasons. A better choice would've been the option #2 for those teams that would contribute significantly, or possibly even surpass those 3.
Small thing to note here that should have an asterisk next to it in your article, Alabama played in 2 more games than any other team in the SEC. Therefore, yards per game would be a more accurate statement when comparing players such as Fitzgerald to Hurts. When you look at it that way, Nick threw for almost exactly 1 more yard/game than jalen, and ran for nearly 40 more yards/game than jalen.If you are going to do comparisons, at least do them in a way that's more apples to apples. Otherwise you're just doing a bad job at it.
I'm not sure I see alabama doing it with jalen hurts unless they make it to the championship game again, which is doable, and even still he may not be a 3K yard passer. While he may have made progress this spring, i don't think he'll ever be a great passing QB. The 2780 last year took all of those games to achieve, 2 more games than most teams, and there's no guarantee they make it to the SEC or NC games.
Lots of teams other than Tamu would block Texas from joining. Alabama recruits and depends heavily on the state. Arkansas as well. LSU does great in TX. Add in the longhorns and a lot of that may go away from those schools.
I'm looking forward to making another trip to Neyland for a better game than the one in 2011. The place was pretty quiet then.One stadium that's surprisingly not that loud is Bryant-Denny. Every time I've been it just hasn't been as loud as it could be.
He never played a game in Death Valley, so for him this makes sense.
If nothing else, move hurts to RB. That's probably his best shot at the NFL anyways.
There most certainly is a ton of waste, but more could still help in the right areas. It doesn't matter if it's new money, or money that comes from restructuring and better processes that eliminate waste. Teacher pay is horrible, and many people's children are worse. There isn't much incentive to do the best in many school systems, or to attract the best talent.
While not a fan of all NCAA rules, this one should be rule based. If a graduate student athlete wants to transfer, he or she (considering other sports here) should be able to do so unrestricted as long as the school is not on the current teams immediate schedule. if on the schedule, an NCAA exemption process could follow with an exemplary case to prove why the student should be allowed to go there.Definitely shouldn't be up to a head coach at any point in time.
and that's in the title where it should be most obvious something is wrong.....Further proof we need to stop pulling funds away from education. It'd be amazing what the $20 billion (estimated) for a waste of a wall could do for the public school systems across the nation.
Deshaun was obviously the bigger man here, doing that would only diminish that fact.
I could see them using him as a duel-threat practice squad QB.
I'm not seeing what's so "crazy" about this. Just a kid going through the recruiting cycle as he should. Click-bait titling at it's finest
The problem with the major networks is that for years they were allowed to get fat with no one and nothing to keep them in check. The disruptive forces from the various online sources is exactly what these networks need to bring them back to reality. What will really be a game changer is when someone comes out with a "pick and pay" service where you only pay for the channels you want and aren't forced to pay for a plethora of channels you care nothing about.
I think they got the Knoxville choice way wrong. The Flying Saucer is a chain, and should never be mentioned in such an article/list. The Downtown Grill & Brewery would've been a much better selection.
Smart play by the hogs. Will give them more time to prepare for TCU before the bye week, and should be plenty rested for Texas A&M after. I see a potential 3-0 start in their future.
I wasn't referring to Watson. His target Rebfrow would be the person I'm referring to
I think one of the young linebackers for LSU would've been a better choice, or maybe even a receiver.
Careful with those kind of statements. A walk-on to Clemson tore up alabamas defense in the championship game. Recruiting services don't always get it right, and you never know who could end up being a real difference maker.
Would it be fair to say, that it's new Rhoads ahead for Arkansas? (Puts on sunglasses as "yeah" portion of won't get fooled again plays)
ND isn't a very good team right now, so it's not exactly a marquee match-up. UGA should handle them pretty easily. Brian Kelly has that team trending in the wrong direction, and will likely be out after next year.
Can someone please point out the "brutal shot" for me? Oh, there isn't one? I see. Just some hack using shock headlines as click-bait.The truth is 'bama has beaten LSU consecutively for 6 years now, had won 3 BCS championships, and have played in the CFP the past 3 years, winning one. His statement was the truth, not brutal.
I think even if Fournette were a sophomore he'd sit this game. He's legitimately been injured since fall practice because he hasn't put in the proper time to rest. The fact that the media (and many others) are trying to make such an agenda of what he's doing is a bit sickening. Of course no one know's the true details except himself and those close to him.
What they came up with truly is the best scheduling scenario for fans of college football. I'd love to see my team play every college at least once in a 4 year span, and have the opportunity to watch my team play at each venue more than once every 20 years. The current scheduling system implemented a few years ago is garbage for the fans and the players.Of course, getting rid of the permanent cross division rivalries would help solve this as well. Just have AU/GA or AL/TN play an OOC game when they don't meet and it helps the ability to schedule each SEC team in a 4 year span much easier. An extra conference game wouldn't hurt either.
Already behind FSU, now Jim McElwain must battle Charlie Strong and Lane Kiffin for Florida’s best recruits, too
I didn't even read the article because the title was so outlandish, i just came for the comments to see others thoughts on this gibberish.
Maybe big, maybe not. The kid has had some major injuries over his high school career that will surely affect his college & potential NFL career if he makes it. Due to those issues, he's not someone i'd want to build a class around.
I'd much rather listen to him than Gary Danielson, that's for sure.
While Cam Robinson was still decent this year, i'm not sure i agree with him getting the Jacobs Trophy
