Sooner than later, this will change everything about top-flight college football.
There is one thing UT fans can look forward to. Milton plodding his way toward the line and then deftly falling over just before he gets there.
College football is facing so many huge crossroads all at once. Not sure of what the answers are but, whatever happens, my bet is the college football landscape looks a lot different sooner than later. Buckle up!
His list of accomplishments is stunning. I doubt we will ever see anything like it again.
Seems like an honest assessment and he kept it classy. Gotta like that.
The "shine that's been sand-papered off the Big Ten" has absolutely nothing to with Michigan winning or losing in upcoming games. I would think, as the competition gets better, the loss of Livers could actually play a part in them bowing out.
Not an OSU fan, but they actually won the CFP in 2014. How's your team been doin?
The loss yesterday by the Illini while unlikely really wasn't that improbable. The Ramblers have a top-flight, mid-major program that has a history of hanging with the big boys. This year's version obviously has enough talent and heart to make some noise. They schooled the Illini with a team ball clinic and they now have bragging rights in the state, and more importantly, on the South Side.
He's heading to Tuscaloosa for some reclamatin.
The rubber has finally met the road for the likes of UT, Michigan, Nebraska, Arkansas, UCLA, and many other schools with proud football traditions. The really special talent has been gravitating to a smaller and smaller number of schools over the past 10 years or so and that number has shrunk even more over the past few years. The hype machine churns it out for the select few 24/7. Tune in to ESPN or listen/read national sportswriters and podcasts-they can't possibly get anymore centric-team driven than they are now. Schools like UT now get noticed when a coach gets canned, hired or something bad happens, after that it's pretty darn quiet. Sure, UT has botched it with its hiring and firing but it's a lot more than that, just look at all the schools stuck in the same, dreary place.
You need BS to get you through. Go with it. 5&5 is what it is.
You got a mediocre SEC team. Numbers don't lie with or without your made-up numbers.
Ole Miss won because of two reasons. Indiana was missing its QB and Indiana tackled like a bad JV high school team. Tackling with your eyes closed just isn't going to work if you wanna win.
Herman could eventually make his way to UT.
I just want to see a competitive game. I do think Alabama is the better team but not nearly to the degree that many Alabama fans believe. OSU is coming into the game with a huge chip on its shoulder and the talent level on these 2 teams is pretty darn even. If Fields is healthy, this should be a good one.
The 4th down call decided the game. Get 2 yards and the game is over.
The CFP is killing Division 1 football. 4 teams chosen out of 129 teams with subjective biases as part of the process, isn't representative of the best teams. Case in point, why ND over A&M? The number of teams chosen & the methodology for choosing them, are a joke.
Good article in the AP this morning about the discrepancies that have come about in 4 & 5-star landing spots, since the CFP came about. Time to either scrap the entire thing or open it up. Make a selected number of bowl games part of the format. Say, 16 games-32 teams. Start it the week after Thanksgiving. College football is the only major college sport that has a ridiculously limited amount of teams vying for its championship. What is the logical explanation for that?
Way to stand behind the guys that took the field Coach.Time to break out the Darth Vader costume.
Dabo's just covering it in case his team loses. This way he can't lose.
Yeah, reminds me of Dabo calling out FSU. Then he turns around and his team doesn't play in its last regular-season game. How about the Ohio State calling out Michigan, after they, OSU, called off their game with Illinois.
So instead of a 56-52 game, we get a 56-50 game. Still, be fun to watch.
Good fit in the pros? Minnesota’s P.J. Fleck reportedly among college coaches drawing interest from the NFL
Until they at least get their feet wet nobody really knows how a college coach will work out in the pros, or vice versa for that matter. From the supposed world's greatest Coach of anything of all time, St. Nick, who managed to crack 400 in the pros, to Charlie Weiss, who brought a whole lot of smoke before he slinked away to Kansas. Heck, look at Harbaugh. His 49er's got within the 7-yard line twice in the last 2 minutes of Superbowl XLVII, only to lose. Now, he's about to get run out of Ann Arbor. Nobody really knows.
Notre Dame got its as handed to them and people are still justifying that they got in. Line up the same 5 to 7 teams for next year. Sorry Coastal, but if the current CFP selection process continues, your team could never qualify.
Auburn president Jay Gogue sends out email warning fans against ‘inaccurate and malicious’ social media posts
"Believe what you want to believe but Coach Harrison was our first choice all along."
I hate to be that guy, but I will. If your team gets curb-stomped during the season, you don't deserve to be included in the CFP. Selecting A&M would have been wrong but choosing ND, is laughable.
