Interesting that Pittman is so high on this list, considering he's a first year HC taking over a struggling program with probably the hardest schedule in all of college football. I would hope that Arkansas would give him somewhat of a pass on this season's results. Not to mention his contractual buy-out would be at it's highest.
Fuzzyvol - the reasons for waivers are clearly called out in the SEC rules. It's not as liberal as the NCAA waivers are.
“ unless we just want to say it’s a rule that we voted on.” That’s exactly what Sankey said today.
With all this hype and expectations, Mullen better not lose in Jacksonville this year or y’all won’t ever hear the end of it.
The actual criteria is a .500 record. 6 Wins only applies in a regular 12 game season. For this year, it'd be 5 wins for SEC. 4 wins for B1G, etc.
In fairness, the Athens PD are equal opportunity a-holes. I know plenty of students of various ethnicities who have been treated like trash and/or unreasonably searched. They just seem to hate that Athens is a college town.
Was thinking along the same lines. But they painted it on their field. I’m confused.
Appreciate the level headed take. The answer to your trivia question is Dan Mullen has spent a week or two as #1. The catch is that they attained that ranking early in the season after beating LSU, A&M, and Auburn who all ended up having 8-5 seasons. In the same season he was briefly ranked #1, he also lost the Egg Bowl and his bowl game against GA Tech. Kirby; however has only been HC since 2016 in an era of unquestionably Clemson/Bama #1 until the CFP Championship. As a testament to Mullen, a lot of people point to that 4-7 season, but actually that McElwain team had talent. They even beat UGA in 2016. They just gave up on their coach and that season. So (in my opinion), Mullen didn’t exactly inherit an empty cupboard like a lot of people seem to think.
I love the logic here: Kirby Smart: Plays in big games, loses sometimes. Dan Mullen: Can't make it to big games, best coach ever. Who has the better record against top 10 teams? Who has the better record against teams that finish with 9 or more wins? (Hint: Not Dan Mullen)
Keep in mind SDS is the “Entertainment Tonight” of CFB. Can’t take anything you read here seriously.
Will they? You know something the rest of us don’t?
Smart move Ed. If everyone gets it now, you won't have any season interruptions.
Agreed. Waivers, by definition, are the exception and not the rule. I understand that waivers are seemingly handed out like candy lately, but you should always transfer with the anticipation of sitting out a year.
Has 8 SEC offers including TN, but you know, probably not a take for Pruitt.
You’d think with extremely high viewership planned (no other football on) that they’d get better cameras and announcers.
Meanwhile Iowa, who is safely not playing this year, announces 93 positive tests in their athletics a week.
Nothing to meltdown about. Rankings go back to 1998 (BCS era) and UGA didn’t produce much NFL talent back then. You could argue we reached RBU status only recently.
(Meaning their season is cancelled, not a reference to conference only scheduling)
@JTF Most of those schools won’t play an FCS opponent in 2020 either! :)
Nothing says they can’t coordinate it. Of course they did. Only thing they can’t do is pay for the visit or meet the kids. If Brock Vandagriff wants to have his buddies over for a sleepover, he can. No COVID or recruiting violations there.
What if they move the season to the spring but you have 40 player deaths because kids didn't see a reason to quarantine and be safe anymore and went back to their communities and got sub-par healthcare? Shouldn't they be liable then too?
Agree with BT. This is essentially adding non-conference games back onto the schedule. Defeats the purpose of the original strategy.
“Kyle Trask, the unheralded 2-star recruit who now figures to be the 1st-team All-SEC quarterback” Say what? Do all the other QBs have the COVID already?
