This is why I love the South.

Comment 13 Dec 2014

If Ohio State gives Herman a raise that could compete with the Houston HC job, then I think there's a possibility he stays.  However, Houston isn't Southern Miss or Temple; it's a legitimate second tier program, making it an excellent place to start as a head coach as success would be widely noticed around the country and would make him an immediate "hot" prospect.  He easily could become the next Kevin Sumlin within a couple of years.

I agree with all of your points except the part about parity in college football. While I personally love parity, it seems that with every loss the NCAA suffers in court college sports are moving away from parity and more towards the ideas of true capitalism.  

I love the part about the playoff games being played in the south.  Why couldn't there be locations for games in New York, Washington, Philadelphia, Chicago, etc.? And bowl games shouldn't be implemented into the system.  Let Michigan State play Arizona for the Rose Bowl and Mississippi State play Baylor in the Sugar Bowl.  While those matchups in particular don't feature quality fan bases, they do feature quality teams, and in future seasons teams like USC, Texas, and LSU who get left out of the playoff can still play in these games and have them maintain their prestige.

Seeing as Boykin wasn't invited either I don't mind that Barrett isn't going.  It gives the award more of an appearance as an offensive award rather than the quarterback award that has become.

Comment 04 Dec 2014

Why Scott? He has no head coaching experience. We have no idea whether or not he could have succeeded as the head of a program.

Comment 04 Dec 2014

Why? Nebraska is a powerhouse school.  Why would they risk their future on a guy with no head coaching experience?

Comment 03 Dec 2014

I never realized the series against Wisconsin was so dominated by Ohio State in the past.  I knew we beat them a good deal but 39 wins to just 10? Geez.

Comment 02 Dec 2014

That stat is definitely inflated by NCAA Tourney games and B1G matchups.  I would love to see at least 2 or 3 more difficult non conference matchups.  They wouldn't even have to be marquee games, I would take matchups against teams like Kansas State, Georgia Tech, etc. just to get a better gauge of the team and some more excitement in the preseason.

Comment 02 Dec 2014

We lose Darryl Baldwin along the offensive line so we're not actually returning all 5 starters.

Comment 01 Dec 2014

Unfortunately the Baylor leap frogging thing seems like the likely scenario at this point.  However, out of the two you selected, I would rather be in and hold the number four seed now.  That security would be spectacular and would do wonders for shutting up all of these SEC people here in the South

...or they could do what they have been doing and make millions off of a 30 minute program that features a 5 minute revealing process, 10 minutes of analysis, and 15 minutes of commercials.

Comment 23 Nov 2014

Why would it be bullshit? Statistically, TCU and Baylor have equal defenses and more powerful offenses.  They've played roughly the same level of competition, and have lost to much more respectable teams. I really wish Ohio State could jump over these Big 12 teams, but there simply is no reason other than the always reliable "eye test" to justify OSU replacing either Big 12 team.
