Congratulations to Arkansas! Better pitchers, better hitting and just better effort. Between State, Arkansas, Auburn and Vandy, the SEC is well represented at Omaha. Good luck to everyone!!!
Incredible to watch! His total command of all pitches, especially that wicked breaking ball, was amazing!!! But what was more astounding was his post game interview. In the days of the "ME" generation, he was genuinely humble, appreciative and team first. He represents his family and Vandy well!!! Congratulations!
I just can't stop : ) smiling!!!!!!!!!! Best of luck TAMU. Really.
Exactly. That's my point. Many of the current problems in college football could be erased with a more structured and transparent minor league system. The same could be said for basketball. Both the NFL and NBA are multi-billion dollar enterprises. It could be done, but corporate greed will never let it happen.
How about this??? For the best players (including those who think they are), college football is no more than the minor league of the NFL. Let's stop pretending most of these kids are there for an education. Whether it's football or basketball, the majority have their eyes on the big prize - not alma mater. Eventually, sweeping reform of the entire process will happen. The system already works pretty well for NCAA baseball. Why not use a similar model for the other sports?
Congratulations to Vandy. They just wouldn't quit. Their team hitting resume is legit. Everyone swings the bat well, and there are no easy outs. This team could possibly win it all. By the same token, congrats to Mike Bianco and the Rebel team as well. They weren't supposed to even be there. Vandy is just the better team from top to bottom.
Hey about 45 years too late for my knees!!! : )
That's $43.1 million a year!
Hey, we're not mad at TAMU or trolling you. I sincerely hope he works out for you. From the beginning of his time in Oxford, it's been the wrong fit. He was a complete dumpster fire for Ole Miss. And before anyone jumps on the "fund raising" wizard bus, remember our annual take from the SEC revenue pool is a cool $43.1 from 2019 alone. Other than that, he's left us quite a chunk of debt. He would have never left without another job. So believe me, we APPRECIATE TAMU!!!
Hate to burst your bubble, but NO ONE is sad to see Bjork go. Most people see only the NCAA problems. Trust me, the real issue is much broader. If he works out for TAMU, then great. But for us, it was the best possible outcome!
Bueller? Bueller?? Bueller???
Here's a little perspective...with apologies to super villains everywhere! Thanos has been vanquished. Darth Sidious has been eliminated. Lex Luther is in prison. The Joker has been dismissed. The force has restored balance and restored the Infinity Stones. It's kind of like that!
Christmas in May!!!
How about... Congratulations and best wishes! : )
This may be the beginning of change in the governance of college athletics. It seems improper or even illegal payments to acquire players has been the status quo. Until now, most schools have been able to operate in the shadows with little to no consequence. Well, unless you're Ole Miss or some other favorite NCAA sacrifice. Since the feds have lifted the veil of rampant malfeasance in college basketball, change is inevitable. If anyone thinks LSU and a few other named schools are the only guilty parties, then you're just in denial. It would be awesome to believe your school always plays within the rules, but that would be disingenuous.
Congratulations to Zed! Sadly he never reached his potential at Ole Miss. Best wishes!
Apologies to Admiral Schofield, his teammates, coaches and the entire Tennessee fan base. The actions at the end of last night's game were classless and inexcusable. That should NEVER happen - anywhere or anytime. The majority of Ole Miss alumni and Mississippians DO NOT support or condone that type of boorish behavior.
Not a good look for Kermit. ALL coaches of today would do well to research, study and model John Wooden. That's how it's done!
Karma. When bad, inexplicable things continue, perhaps it's time to look inward. For me, I'm tired of the me against the world narrative. We are our own worst enemy.
Sooooo...it wasn't about protesting the National Anthem. It was just THEIR way of making a statement. So with that line of reasoning, I should take a knee EVERY time I'm unhappy, mad or disagree with something. Yes, let's denigrate the American flag every way imaginable. We have officially moved to the theater of the absurd. Only God can save our country.
Well, there's at least two.
Whining? I said I AGREED with the Ole Miss/NCAA sanctions. We got what we deserved. We cheated and got caught. Plain and simple. Unfortunately, so did Missouri. Quite frankly many more schools do the exact same thing. Quick question. Do you know what the dropout/failure rate at your particular university is??? The national average is astounding. According to research, 54.8% of all inbound freshmen graduate in SIX years. And yet APR numbers for most colleges and their athletes outpace the norm. Think most college athletes are more studious than the average freshman? Really??? The sad truth is we live in a day where rules don't mean anything...especially when we're the one breaking them.
What is it that I'm missing??? A Missouri staffer completed coursework for players in multiple sports. Pretty sure that's academic fraud. Someone either talked or discovered the infraction at Missouri. Still academic fraud. Missouri cooperates with NCAA and distances school from staffer. Still academic fraud. NCAA punishes Missouri for actions, and everyone says it's unjust. It's still academic fraud. Ole Miss was just raked over the coals for a person fixing ACT scores. Yes, it was academic fraud. And in my opinion, our penalties were earned. In fact, everyone agreed with the NCAA to bring the hammer down on Ole Miss. And again, I believe we earned the punishment. Why is it different for Missouri? Where was the outrage for the Ole Miss sanctions? I realize that North Carolina skated for far worse activities, but that doesn't remove the one obvious fact. A Missouri staffer helped athletes knowingly commit academic fraud. They didn't have to, but they did. Either we have rules, or we don't. But you can't cry foul every time the pendulum of justice swings your way.
Way past time to park the "It Just Means More" and the SEC chant. Results always make a more powerful statement. Of course, we've done nothing positive in recent years to promote the conference. Way past time for us to get our act together, too.
His reasoning is rock solid. It's his choice and his chance to chart the course for his life. Whether that ends up at Mississippi State or somewhere else, you can't blame him for wanting a life beyond football. Far too many kids think the NFL is their golden ticket. Best wishes to him wherever he goes.
Congratulations to Clemson! They were clearly the better team - in every way.
Always felt he was more comfortable as a DB coach. Best wishes Crime Dog!
That's the way it's done! Never leave any doubt. Great win TAMU!!!
Best wishes! The world certainly needs good men in leadership.
Amazing how many people failed to recognize this train wreck and take action. Hey, it's Hugh Freeze's fault. It's the NCAA's fault. It's global warming. It's the Tooth Fairy. No. It's WAOM. The cancer starts at the top, and now the entire program is dying. There's no spinning today.
