He would be allowed and encouraged to put up video game numbers there, which I could certainly see as appealing.
Learn a lesson from Ohio State and don't give them time to figure out what signal you're calling. Give the QB the play to translate off of a key on his armband, and get lined up and go.
but 04 Auburn would have at least been more competitive * No argument from me. Interestingly, just glancing at the stats, there have been 17 individual SEC teams appearing in the playoffs over the last 20 years of national championships (there are years where it was SEC VS SEC). That's incredible for such an inferior conference.
+1. The inferior SEC that has won what, 11 NC titles or so since 2004 which, interestingly, was the last time USC (or any other Pac12 team) was able to bother trying to accomplish it.
the Playoff era alone, 8 of the 14 SEC schools went to New Year’s 6 bowls (including both Playoff and non-Playoff New Year’s 6 bowls). Six of those SEC teams — nearly half — won New Year’s 6 bowls. * And the other dirty little NCAA secret: SEC teams are generally put against MUCH higher ranked competition in all bowl games. This would be worth an article, BTW. I remember two or three years ago #38 or so NCSU being matched up with ~#80 Vanderbilt, and #40+ Arkansas playing someone (tcu?) that was ranked. Beat them, too iirc. Lots and lots of ranking inflation - and the opposite - in the FBS. I get it, though. They can't have even the worst SEC teams ranked higher than the non elite Big 10 and ACC groups.
It is then humorously revealed that Texas A&M is causing the security scanner to go off on Texas every time it walks through. * Saved people a lot time. Thanks.
It's probably completely coincidental that is happening at the exact moment college players are no longer amateur athletes.
I’m excited, I’m happy he said that because everybody at Auburn should come in with the mindset of beating Alabama, and that’s just important to us, it’s important to me,” he added. * #Standards #Goals #SuccessfulSeason #Champions
OU has played your top teams 11 times this century, only one, LSU, has a winning record. Alabama, king of the sec, is a pitiful 1-3. * (looks at Alabama's six national championship trophies in the same time frame) Your terms are acceptable.
I'm interested to see him play. If he stays healthy they'll be tough to beat. Something that is often forgotten is how much luck is involved in winning a NC, too. Alabama recently won one only because of a good luck circus clown lateral play in an Arkansas game that they weren't even playing in, and recently lost one in 2019 because of a bad luck circus clown first half (iirc Tua inexplicably fumbled at the goal line in our first possession) against the best team of all time that was still only a five point game. Add Tua's hip injury and that was that for the NC run. It's incredible to consider how much luck plays a role, and now here he is at a legitimate NC team instead of an also-ran PAC12 group. He seems like a good guy and I wish him the best.
I genuinely look forward to seeing how this plays out at well-heeled booster-micromanaged schools like Texas. I bet they'll throw money at players with abandon. It will be interesting to see if it helps.
It's good to hear that the accepted standard for a successful season remains in place even with the coaching change.
Yep. Happy young man with a great job, family, and kids. I was shocked to read that he didn't shoot himself in the back of the head in a robbery where nothing was stolen.
+1. Yes, thanks, that's my point exactly. No other girls out there who know how to kick a ball?
Top Group of 5 should play Notre Dame until Notre Dame joins a conference. Luck of the Irish Bowl or something similar.
Dang, Vandy. You threw girls under the bus as soon as you could, didn't you? Way to prove everyone right who pointed out that it was all just meaningless woke PR bull****.
Except for the part where this is a site about college football. It literally states that in the "about us" link. Not that SDS writers know or care, I suppose. Regardless, did the ratings services finally release the total viewership ratings or are they still postponing it.
Don’t buy the lie that we beat a depleted O St team. - Absolutely. THE team didn't experience anything that other teams didn't also endure midway through their season. They just decided to get started with their halfway point during the playoffs.
A big part of what hurt Ohio State was experiencing routine mid-season injuries right when they were playing for the title.
Was there a football game after the National Championship?
Roll Tide, Jalen. You're a class act and I'm glad you were one of ours.
We all just witnessed what happens when Clemson doesn't have the opportunity to collect signals. They've got great talent but rely heavily on that strategy, which bit them in the @ss against Ohio State who decided to counter it. Georgia by two touchdowns. Maybe three.
The fun part will be watching everything open back up while cases miraculously drop because of reduced testing and reporting now that the election is over. Officials in Chicago and New York are already publicly saying it's now time to end the charade that destroyed 40%+ of small businesses.
Xey want folks that don't know xem to use xir chosen pronoun.
+1, it doesn't, but it's interesting to ponder. Regardless, everything is back to normal again this season.
I'm comfortable saying Alabama. 2019 LSU was very good and played their game of the decade against 2019 Bama, while 2019 failed-season Bama forgot how to play for the first half and yet still only lost that game by 5.
I saw a great observation during the game. During the playoffs Ohio State began getting the injuries that teams routinely experience halfway through their season.
Media like USA today is already running articles about passing laws for "the greater good" (not satire) to limit Saban's monopoly (no joke), redistribution of wealth via a draft instead of competent recruiting, restrictions on scholarships, and that Saban should retire because their teams can't compete and this isn't what football should be.
Yep. We're very spoiled when THIS feels like things are back to normal, and not only us but the rest of the nation views two losses (by <10 total points) a failure of a season. I'll certainly enjoy it while it lasts, though.
Even if you dislike Alabama and Saban, you have to appreciate what he's accomplishing. Decades from now folks will talk about what we're watching in real time in the same way people discuss Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth and Bear Bryant.
