So.... let's get to what we all really want to know...

(1) Does the NCAA govern collegiate marching bands?  Band members aren't considered student-athletes... are they? (Side comment... are cheerleaders considered student-athletes?)

(2) How much $$$ will this cost the University?  There's already the costs of hiring these public auditing teams (Ernst & Young)... what about the unnecessary money that will now have to be spent for consoling, training, potential lawsuits, etc.  I know this isn't quite on the same level of Penn State & Jerry Sandusky, but that scandal shook Penn State for $171 million (and counting).  I have to imagine this will easily cost us at least a couple million.

For those taking this lightly... this is NOT GOOD.

Not surprised one bit.

Also... I 'Upvoted' all the soap opera comments... but then again, I was also concerned at how many men knew the names of various different soap operas.  That was a little alarming...

I can't believe no one has mentioned this yet...

Does anyone think the cupcakes that LeBron delivered were from the Caroline's Cupcakes (i.e., the cupcake store that had the news that LeBron was returning back to the Cavs).  Maybe this is the evidence/proof they had [i.e., LeBron put in his order way in advance].

Oregon is usually up too big and Mariota is usually out of the game before the end of the 3rd Q.  If anything, I think this would be an argument for Oregon as Mariota is less likely to get injured (compared to most other starting QBs) and Oregon's backup (Lockie) is likely to be more experienced due to seeing more gametime minutes that most other backups.

I'm not sold on UCLA because I'm not even sure they're the best team in their own conference (Oregon? Stanford?)

Yeah UCLA has Myles Jack who's a specimen, but outside of that... who else do they have?  LB Erik Kendrick?  I'm not sold on Brett Hundley yet.  11 INTs in 2012... 9 INTs in 2013...  I'll take Mariota's #'s (more TDs and less INTs) every day of the week over Hundley's.

1) Oregon has been getting better (over the years) of not getting "bullied" by those more "physical" teams that you're talking about.

2) You said it yourself, IF (and I realize it's a big if) Oregon can get by Stanford (who's been notorious for "out-muscling" Oregon), who stands in their way? ... Still waiting...  I think this might be the year that Oregon finally gets over that hump and defeats Stanford.

3) The schedule sets up nicely for Oregon. If they beat MSU, they have their "showcase 'W' " right out of the gate.  Wyoming? Wash St? Arizona? Washington? Cal? Utah? Colorado? Pshhh.  Oregon has @ UCLA, vs Stanford, and @ Oregon St.  The only team there that could "out-muscle" them is Stanford, and as I alluded to earlier, I think this could be the year Oregon 'muscles-up'.

Who has the best COLLEGE quarterback out of Alabama, FSU, Oregon, Oklahoma, Auburn, OSU, and UCLA?

I'd say FSU, Oregon, Ohio State, and UCLA.

Personally, I feel the 'Noles lost way too many studs, so I don't have them repeating.

Ohio State... we have some major questions at OL (as a group), RB, WR, and the Secondary (as a group). For me, simply too many questions.

UCLA... I'm not sold on their TEAM.

So... for me... the VALUE is easily Oregon.  They have a very good COLLEGE quarterback... they have a nice team... they have some playmakers in some key positions (Mariota @ QB, Tyner @ RB, senior-laden OL, Ekpre-Olomu @ CB)... I think the Ducks can (and will) make some noise this year.  Why not take the value ?

All-time favorite movie.

Comment 16 Jul 2014

"Name recognition" and "getting the top recruit" are not important.  Getting the most talented recruit is what's important.  Doesn't matter if that recruit is #1, #5, #10, #12, or whatever.  There are plenty of high-profile recruits who have fizzled and their are plenty of 3-star guys that have been All-Americans.  The key is identifying the talented ones; not getting the top or name ones.

More like... If we land Sweat (99), he would be our biggest commit since Noah Spence (99).  How quickly we forget...

J. Hilliard (98)
R. McMillan (98)
D. Booker (98)
V. Bell (98)
A. Washington (98)
B. Miller (98)

Comment 15 Jul 2014

I know Mike Miller is LeBron's boy, and I know he looked great in the Finals two years ago... but seriously... does Miller have any knees/legs left?  I'm not sure I'm buying this signing.

Comment 14 Jul 2014

Bump ?

Can someone from the actual site share some inside knowledge/perspective on this request?

Comment 10 Jul 2014

It really is unbelievable how much better Sammy Silverman's designs are then the rest of the competitions.  And I'm not knocking Sammy's - because they are certainly amazing - but some of these other things are look like GRADE SCHOOL drawings.  Are you kidding me?!?!?!  Seriously... THAT'S the BEST you can do?!??!

UCLA, USC, and Oregon it appers (with UCLA having a pretty decent lead)
