Mississippi State officially announces Joe Moorhead has been relieved of his duties as head football coach
I feel bad for Coach Moorhead and his family. Nobody ever wants people to think they are doing a bad job. But it was obvious a change needed to happen. The team always seemed to be under-prepared and undisciplined. He recruited well, but didn't seem to maximize the talent or development of the players.
Image, likeness response: Senator plans to introduce legislation to tax some athletic scholarships as income
I don't like this at all. Academic scholarships aren't taxed, so why should athletic scholarships be taxed? Sure, tax the money made off of their likeness, but that shouldn't make scholarship money that never makes it into their bank accounts taxable.
From Brett McMurphy's report: "If Urban Meyer knew about the domestic violence issues, he may have violated his contract and could be fired with cause. The contract says he must "promptly report to Ohio State's Title IX Coordinator for Athletics any known violations of Ohio State's Sexual Misconduct Policy (including but not limited to sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, intimate violence and stalking) that involve any student, faculty or staff." There's enough evidence here to suggest that something most likely happened, that he most likely knew about it, and therefore he should have reported it to the university. I agree that we need to get all of the facts, but to compare this to Duke, which was more of a "he said, she said" situation, is inaccurate.
I agree with putting in 8 teams Go with the Power 5 Conference Champions (so that winning your conference means something), the top ranked Group of 5 Champion, and 2 at-large teams. That would have made an 8 team playoff this year look like this: 1) Clemson 2) Oklahoma 3) Georgia 4) Alabama (at-large) 5) Ohio State 6) Wisconsin (at-large) 7) USC 8) UCF I think I could live with a playoff that looked like this (sorry Auburn).
I honestly hope we put more on the RBs so that the next time our QB goes down, it's not as big of a blow to EVERYTHING the offense does.
I doubt they'll let him transfer within the conference or to any of their future opponents. He's going to be treated the same as any other player at any other institution seeking to transfer since he isn't coming up on his final year of eligibility.
I may be color blind, but those pants look gray to me.
I think for Mississippi State, 36 would be the number, in honor of Nick Bell who passed away from cancer in the middle of the 2010 season. For the rest of that season, different players wore his #36 to honor him, including Chris Relf in the Gator Bowl when we embarrassed Michigan.
