With dead period upon us, no reason to leave now. Can build staff while performing current duties. Herman did it.
Washington is 2014 Baylor with a conference championship.
This time around, Everett Withers isn't going to be calling the defense.
If Beck pulls in two more Texas five stars, will that change your mind?
I base the contraction idea on several things:
1. Urban's comments last season when asked about expansion to eight teams. His concern was additional physical toll on college students. Contraction would be a trade off.
2. One option would be contraction for P5 only. That would allow an additional game for revenue and increased exposure.
3. If you play eleven, you could move everything up one week. That way you could play the first round at home sites the first Saturday in December. That keeps the middle two weeks free for finals. Also time for bowl preparation.
I think the committee gives them credit for playing a P5 OOC team on the road. Same for OSU.
An expansion to eight could be accompanied with a contraction to eleven games.
Hope getting the NFL first round evaluation doesn't affect his playoff performance, says ghost of Saban past.
You can bet there was a back channel message of do it again and you are suspended.
Hope Urban and team visit victims to boost morale.
Nielsen overnight will get OSU in. Does anyone know if the CFP has seeding provisions to avoid two teams in the same conference in the championship?
What if the fourth team is B1G? I'd think they would pair them in the semi to avoid a repeat of Bama-LSU.
This is why Fox paid a premium to have first pick beginning next season.
Looking forward to the seismometer readings.
Ball is in Delaney's court. He won't let it pass.
ESPN's bean counters will say we're in.
Simmons is a curious omission from that list. I'd think he'd want to be here.
No roughing the center penalties, either.
Agreed, but even more egregious was the hit USC's Ray Malaluga put on the UCLA QB that same day. IIRC, he wasn't flagged.
See the Dead Schembechlers are performing at Ace of Cups Friday night. Lord knows Harbaugh has provided ample material. I'll expect video on Gameday.
Around the bowl and down the hole is a multi-purpose response. Also applicable to Bama.
Breaking the record will depend on the number of standing room tickets sold for the suites.
After we win Saturday, does Urban lobby for CFP inclusion or save that for a phone interview during the B1G title game, assuming OSU isn't in it?
Add unbalanced line and Bowen at TE.
