I've seen plenty of coaches straight up state that you never stay when you're a 1st round pick.  Someone at OSU accurately told him that was likely and he made the correct decision to take the money while it was available.  Way better than coming back, blowing out a knee, and missing out on all the extra bank that comes with the first round pick.

Also, F Ole Miss and F whomever tried to ruin a 19 y/o's life. What a horrible situation that poor kid is in. He should be having the best day of his life and instead is embroiled in all this shit.

How is this even possible?  Do they not just laser-time everyone?  I don't get why individual teams would have someone standing around pushing buttons and hoping that their scout has reaction times that are precise into the hundredths of a second.

I thought there would be one or two tweets.  So pleasant to just see the compliments going on and on.  Like everyone else, I want nothing but good outcomes for that guy.  I hope someone from his family gets to read threads like this from time to time.

You saw 88's first two touchdowns of the season last night.  I thought Clemson outplayed Bama, but Bama clearly outcoached Clemson.  They saw a few weaknesses and called special plays that exploited those weaknesses in very critical moments.  Four of those plays directly led to touchdowns.

Percentages literally correct for sample size.  If you have a 90% winning percentage then you're expected to win 90 out of 100 games, regardless of how many games that % calculation is based upon.  The removal of ties in the "modern era" does somewhat spoil the comparison though.  This senior class has been to OT a number of times, all of which would drop the winning % of teams in the non-OT era.

+1.  I don't have the explicit data, but if you look at the "last 3 years" records of Power 5 coaches, I would bet Strong is on a path that very few survive.  And Herman most certainly wants the Texas job and is using that trajectory to plan his own future.  To argue otherwise is simply ignoring reality.

I personally believe that the winner of the B1G, ACC, and B12 are all locks.  If UNC wins, we'll have the same record.  Our SOS is not that much better than theirs and they will have just knocked off the #1 team in the nation, hard not to agree with that as an automatic playoff qualifier.  If OSU were 12-1 and had just beat an undefeated #1 ranked team in the B1G championship game, we'd all be livid to be left out.

If Florida wins, we may sneak in.  If Florida wins and Stanford loses, we're a lock.
