#2 absolutely, but I thought that was an NFL rule that didn't exist in college? Unabated to the QB being the exception, I thought they called FS on D in pros but you could still get back before the snap in college. If not, 100% agree with you. #1 though, just no. Why? What does that make better? "Teams design plays to work within the rules so those rules need to be changed" for what purpose? It wouldn't make the game better in any way, just change what is and isn't a catch for the sake of changing it.
They already have all those rules, you just have to wait until Sunday to see them... Why would anyone want college football, a game twice as old as the NFL, to suddenly change every difference to be the same? 2-4 are just hard no, 1 and 5 are meh at best but there's no reason to change other than to be like the NFL. 9 is an embarrassment. College football OT is the greatest achievement a rules committee in any sport has ever accomplished and you want to ditch that to turn it into just more of the same game? Booooooriiiiing! 7 and 10 are decent. I would love to see a little more transparency in selecting playoff teams but taking 12 teams would totally destroy the whole premise of "every game matters" that makes college ball so great. Lost 3 games? NBD, congrats champ! Hell no. Fixing onside kicks would be nice, though. As it stands now, it's just random chance, very little skill. Either fix it or ditch it. But the rest of this is garbage.
It made me think that maybe he's not super confident in having a big season and maybe he's leveraging the offseason hype instead of risking having a mediocre season and losing the start. Or maybe it is purely a health thing. It just strikes me as strategic to be this close to kickoff. Oh well, less QB controversy now at least.
"To me it's common sense. You want your son to transfer so two years later you sue the school after his coach leaves and create a hostile environment so you can demand special treatment" Fixed it for good ole JP.
By nature of playing in the East, we have an easier schedule in general, but saying that Auburn and @Bama are easier than LSU and @A&M is ridiculous. The only way we have an easier schedule than Florida is because they have to play UGA and we have to play them.
I definitely think it's hypocritical to cancel games but not practices, looking from the top down at the season it still makes sense. With an already shortened season and no breaks, if one team has an exposure or outbreak then at least their next two games are going to be canceled. So there would be a huge financial incentive to cover up and potentially risk infecting the entire conference or there's going to be missed games throughout the season. It basically becomes an exhibition season when you end with some teams playing eight games, some teams playing four games, etc. To be a little conspiratorial, what if the schedule was such that the last two games of the season were the two hardest and so a team reported a positive case after going 8-0. Delaying the season to the spring doesn't prevent any of this, but it just makes it a lot more likely to get a complete season which I think is more of the point. For my money, I'd rather start the season in January, play 12 games, and finish up with a slaughter against tech rather than start play toward the end of September, get as many so we can, and play for an asterisk trophy. Plus how much is it going to suck come February when the NFL is over and suddenly Big ten and pac-12 games are getting all the coverage? No thank you.
"This small portion of athletes are being very outspoken about their desire to play sports in the fall so they absolutely should be able to play sports in the fall!" Ask them if they want to get paid. "No!"
I'm trying to figure this one out. Two of the power 5 are delaying the season. No one else is playing outside the conference. Even if there's a NC from the fall, it's going to be a little spoiled. Those other conferences are likely to play in the spring with the same issue. If there's an outbreak on any SEC team, that's at best a huge wrench in the season, at worst we could end up cancelling half way through. The best case scenario is that we play our 10 games, do a conference championship, and watch the other two do the same in the spring. Why is that better than just waiting until the spring and shooting for a full season? Don't get me wrong, I know the answer. I'm just genuinely curious if anyone is going to torture some logic or just stick with politics.
It's a solid point and a gamble either way. Playing the season in the fall is clearly not a decision made with player safety first. Maybe things are better in the spring and we could have a fairly full season started in January. Maybe things aren't better by then. It just doesn't feel likely that if we start a season in September that we're going to play all the games. Baseball is struggling to get their games in now and they don't spend the entire afternoon running into each other. I want to do whatever is going to give us the best chance at a full season and pretending like everything's fine in 6 weeks doesn't appear to be that.
"quickly reporting information as it comes out even if that information changes very quickly changes this white people don't trust immediate anymore." "If I was working with the media, I would just straight up lie to them" You're so close to figuring it out...
Players uniting, having demands got safety, representation. Suddenly the conferences that just passed their schedule decide to cancel. I wonder if there was anything else to change between this week and last week.
Does he think that Alabama basketball is like football, and when they don't have a season Alabama just gets to declare that they're the champion?
Lol PAC12 feeling a little bitter about getting left out of the playoffs again and again so they're taking their revenge the best way they know how.
Yeah, I was really looking forward to Tuscaloosa with Fromm getting another shot minus Tua. I'm less enthusiastic now. Week 3...
Because of where we're losing them. Our secondary was suspect going into the season and got strong, now they're all returning. Our front 7 have a ton of depth with experience so we're losing some of that but it's not like we have holes. Swift was huge but so was Gurley, Chubby, and Michel but we still have a stable of high end RB talent with experience. The OL cycled injuries all year without much of a difference so losing the top guys there isn't particularly concerning. If we'd lost talent in the secondary or WR like last year, I'd be more concerned. Cager was our top WR and that was by default, not because he was a star. So our weakest position groups from last year are better, albeit not top notch, and our strong spots are deep enough to stay fresh. Fromm is the only real variable there. He'll be sorely missed but I would be much more concerned if we were reloading on D instead.
Auburn had 1 sack against us in Auburn. Do you really think your pass rush at it's peak was better than theirs?
Danny Kanell and a guy called Auburn Alan picked against UGA? Well, I'm convinced! I didn't realize that Fromm had been single handedly beating the Gators am these years. Florida would have to either beat UGA outright, beat LSU and UGA lose to Auburn and Bama, or have multiple huge upsets. UGA is fully reloading at RB and OL, got better at WR, and is returning the entire defense who's seniors have never trailed against UF. I'm not saying it's a done deal that we win just that acting like Fromm leaving is the ultimate game changer in Jacksonville is laughable.
I think the point is why would it be considered leaking information that's already public. If I read something on someone's Facebook page and then share it, I'm not leaking that information. I can easily see a situation where a reporter is talking to a staffer about the transfer and the staffer says "well, his dad is suing us for an incident that happened prior to his commitment, so make of that what you will" And I can also see the Mays family sharing information about their lawsuit in order to bolster the appeal for immediate playing time. I don't see any way that UGA could benefit from any type of malicious action here, though. I mean, the kid was going to be an every game starter this year, probably go pro next year, his position coach left, then his dad follows a lawsuit about something that happened two years ago, then he applies to transfer. Without the lawsuit and the conspiracy theory around it leaking, what is the claim for immediate eligibility? beyond the obvious that every player should be allowed to transfer to their school choice without having to sit out. I want to see that rule changed, but until it is, what makes him special?
So, what is the claim for immediate eligibility here? An event that occurred prior to his commitment more than two years ago? Or is it because of the supposed leaking? Because if the only claim for him getting immediate eligibility is that UGA leaked info about the lawsuit immediately after he transferred, wouldn't it make more sense that the Mays family leaked it? What does UGA gain by this? It's not like we're going to stop him from transferring. And yeah, the timing of the lawsuit is quite suspicious since the incident occurred 2 years ago and within a month of filing the lawsuit he applies for transfer. That said, every player should have the ability to transfer at will to their school of choice without having to sit out. It's ridiculously oppressive rule on students to have to make that important of a decision at 18 and not be allowed to change it.
The 2008 Florida Gator football team has killed more people than marijuana.
If he caught the ball like that in the end zone, would it have still been incomplete? Because I can't imagine that much possession wouldn't count as a catch then.
Well, that's not ideal. Can we use some of our incoming freshmen WR at least?
We didn't finish drives and didn't put up a ton of points but we moved the ball, caught passes that hit receivers, set up the run, and didn't leave the defense on the field for 59 minutes. Momentum and fatigue play a part, too.
Yeah, it's pitiful when a team can't just take the loss with class instead of having the coach complain about the refs and the clock as to why they're playing the hangover game on New Year's Day.
The UGA team that played LSU absolutely wasn't one of the 3 best teams they played. No slight there, just uncomfortable truth. With a full team, it would've been competitive and Coach O might have a different 3. Not what happened, though. Hope y'all win it all from here!
He'll certainly be missed in Jacksonville. Good luck and best wishes to you, FF!
Reading comprehension is hard, isn't it? They didn't charge him with DUI, they charged him with having an open container in the car. There's something in the neighborhood of "a huge difference" between drunk driving and driving a car that has an open beer in it. The passenger had an open container, not him. He's literally driving a drunk person home. What a horrible person, right? I don't think he should get special treatment for being a football player; I think police, especially in a college town, should apply a little bit of discretion when deciding to pull over and arrest students who aren't causing problems.
Not reckless driving, not dui, not even speeding. Under 21 with alcohol in the car. I'm glad they've solved all the crimes in Athens so they have to resort to arresting college students for being too close to alcohol.
Am I the only one who still confused why this needed clarifying? He got a first down with time on the clock. If they had gotten the call right on the field, then Auburn probably doesn't get a play but since they took 10 minutes reviewing it, Auburn had time to set up the kick team and just wait. The snap starts at the first motion from center so is it really that hard to believe that the center began his motion the instant he heard the whistle that started the clock?
Clemson will be in the playoffs without playing a single ranked team. But yeah, totally makes sense that they're ahead of LSU. UGA has more ranked wins than Clemson, Utah, Baylor, Oklahoma, and Bama combined, but yeah, Utah deserved to jump us. These rankings are totally based on a clear rationale.
