Auburn has had a better SoS according to Sagarin. Link
Auburn also had a very nice OOC win @Kansas State while Mississippi chose to schedule home games vs Boise State, LA-Lafeyette, Memphis, and Presbyterian.
Record vs Texas A&M favors Ole Miss as you said, but record vs LSU favors Auburn. (Ole Miss lost 10-7 @ LSU. Auburn blasted LSU 41-7 at home.)
It's close. So much of this is subjective. I just think it's unreasonable to expect a computer algorithm logic string from a human committee.
That's probably why you're not on the committee. Head-to-head is certainly a factor, and a big one at that, but you can't be that simplistic. Location (3 point loss @Baylor when home field is typically worth at least a field goal), record vs common opponents, and out of conference scheduling all weigh in TCU's favor. Again, its close.
TCU lost a shootout by 3 on Baylor's home field. Baylor scheduled garbage out of conference. TCU dominated a fairly decent Minnesota team. Baylor's loss was by 14 points to a West Virgina team that TCU defeated on the road in nasty weather. They're close but you're being a little hyperbolic in saying that it is outrageous for TCU being higher.
TCU, Ohio State, and Arizona State are too low. Alabama and Baylor are too high.
Missouri and Georgia could still be a 2-loss SEC champion and would have a very good quality win against whoever represents the West in the SEC CG. IMO, the SEC champion deserves to be in. They're the best conference in CFB.
I don't think they should get two bids unless we go to an 8-team playoff (5 champions, 3 wild card).
Yikes. I know you meant no harm and just wanted to post a celebration gif and I'm prepared for downvotes, but...
Considering his character's role in that film, that wouldn't be my go to celebration gif. Especially in the recruitment of black athletes. Plenty of gifs out there. Let's retire this one.
Did Aaron get his medical degree? Med school and a doctor's salary sounds a lot more fun than D-league.
Michigan is alone at the top of our rivalry list. Nothing will ever change that.
But...considering the proximity, recruiting prowess, facilities, and the history of success of the two programs (OSU and PSU), this should be our second biggest game every year. Dantonio has MSU rolling right now, but they're playing way above their historical mean.
Compared to all the hate they've received on here and other sites, I feel like I've been driving the bus on Rutgers/Maryland since the announcement of B1G expansion. I expected them to come in and compete. They weren't going to be a doormat. So they've met my expectations.
Unless you're 9 years old, why do you want another grown man's signature that badly? It always just seemed childish to me. I understand collecting memorabilia that was used in games. Those have a story to them. Why do people care about a signature on random items though?
8 teams. 5 conference champs and 3 at-large bids.
Top 4 seeds host the first round on campus. Yes, even in stadiums that get below 60 degrees.
The old BCS bowls rotate hosting the next round just like they do now. On off years, the bowls not in the playoff will host their traditional conference matchups (B1G vs Pac in Rose, SEC in Sugar, ACC in Orange, etc.)
Championship game is bid out like the Super Bowl to the highest bidder.
This is my quarterly reminder to all players/schools being investigated by the NCAA: "Fuck you. Prove it." is far and away your best defense.
Maybe he shouldn't have changed his number. Bad mojo.
Good call though.
TP was a phenomenal athlete but he was a LONG strider. That made for effortless running when he was a QB in the open and had time to find seams in the defense. However, watch an NFL WR, they need quick feet to get in and out of their breaks and run their routes. It's a speed vs quickness issue. I'm not confident TP has that short area burst and agility to be an elite NFL WR. Could he make a roster? Be a heck of a red zone threat? I don't think that's out of the question.
I'd like to see him continue at QB. I think with the way the game is transitioning at the NFL level with more zone-read and spread stuff, he has a better chance at being a difference maker there than with a position switch.
Overdue, in my opinion. I hold no ill will towards Devin. I want him to succeed. But it seems like he bobbles the ball even on the times he comes down with it. He had to catch that he touchdown in the back of the end zone last week on the rebound. I can't recall off the top of my head the last time he plucked one cleanly out of the air. Maybe this demotion will get him motivated.
The cleaning crew at your office must be putting your computer to work at night. I'd suggest cleaning the keyboard/mouse ASAP.
Get rid of two historical powers and two solid programs in ripe recruiting territory so we can play Illinois/Purdue/Minnesota more often?
Learn something new every day. Didn't know he was a fan.
Rutgers and Maryland are good adds that will bolster recruiting and football success in the future. Rutgers is already seeing better recruiting numbers. If they start getting more of that homegrown talent on their roster, look out. Maryland is probably the 3rd best team in the East this year. We didn't add garbage.
Can't see the line. Can ya, Russ?
