I've never been a Browns fan. If Tressel gets hired, however, I wiill buy every piece of Browns gear I can off the internet within an hour of the announcement.
I would buy this
The Baylor/Okie State gif from This Week in Schadenfreude is glorious
Upvote for posting something that may be unpopular. I honestly can say I have mixed feelings about the BCS because I don't think it gets enough credit for the things it got right. Before the BCS every game certainly mattered, but on a regional scale. If the old system was in place, not nearly as many people would have watched Oregon-Stanford this year on television, or 2007 WVU-Pitt, or the past two Alabama-A&M games. The BCS helped college football become truly national, the only threat to the NFL beast.
I believe the BCS took the greatest regular season in any sport and made it even better, more intense. But it was also put in place to solve college football's biggest weakness: the postseason. Unfortunately, it failed to do that.
Is it just me, or are there a lot more injuries this year? The injuries are just happening to higher profile players, perhaps?
Edit: I know every player in college football is injured in some way, I mean injuries that cost the player significant playing time.
You mean the 1st, 2nd, AND 3rd best baseball movies of all time
I agree, so much BCS bullsh*t could have been avoided if we placed a conference champion stipulation on getting into the game. There is no real objective way to prove your team is the 1st or 2nd best in the nation, but a team can certainly prove it's the best in their own conference.
The LSU-Bama title game was complete bs. I don't care if they actually were the two best teams in the nation, Bama got LSU @ HOME in the regular season that year and blew it. This is hardly a 2004 Auburn situation, Bama had the luxury of facing the team they needed to beat and lost.
sigh, once again: we did not replace Vandy with FAMU, we replaced Vandy with SDSU.
And don't let Vandy off the hook like that, it was actually something like 9 months notice. And in the world of college football scheduling, that is a douche move.
Why are Buckeye fans buying into UGA now? They just got taken to overtime by an atrocious Tennessee team.
probably because he kept muffing kickoffs
Congrats to El Guapo! He was given the chance to shine and boy did he.

Looks like Kiffin's early departure has kickstarted a coaching arms race. This is going to be fun.
"Wide Receivers B-
A lot of good, reliable players at wide receiver some that can get you a first down and some that can get deep occasionally. But no one stands out as great route runners or home-run threats."
He's not the best Buckeye receiver we've ever seen, but Devin Smith has certainly proved himself to be a "home-run threat". How many 40+ yard touchdown has that guy caught the last three seasons?
"Kickoff and punt returns have big play potential but OSU tends to opt for sure hands over home-run potential."
At this point in the season, "sure hands" is not the way I would describe Philly Brown on punt returns.
If the undefeated ACC champ is Clemson they will take priority, unfortunately, unless Georgia completely tanks. But I think Ohio State gets picked over Florida State if it is going to come down to those two.
I think I remember Ohio State beating Oregon in the Rose Bowl recently.
Not saying the punishments weren't really severe, but can we please have a moratorium on using arguments like "the sanctions never should have happened because they affected players and personnel that had nothing to do with the Sandusky situation".
Has there ever been an NCAA sanction that has avoided affecting players and personnel who had nothing to do with the violation in question?
I could be wrong about this rule but Pryor was arguably still in the tackle box and was no longer a defenseless player once he tucked the ball and ran. I think helmet-to-helmet hits are legal in this scenario.
