That's not the point of the post. After their win over South Carolina, the pundits claimed it was the offense that made Manziel and that he was replaceable after seeing one game with Kenny Trill. Clearly Manziel meant more than they thought.
Would love to see backups in there...also loved that Samuel run!
Remember that one time when they said Manziel was replaceable
It is cute!
Wait on just one minute. So you're telling me that when they said that UK could beat Ohio State right now and will definitely be better than them all around next year, which is on top of UK having an all around better coaching staff, that they were simply just imagining this? Those UK fans and their damn, dirty lies!!!!1111
If J. Crew isn't mentioned in that book, it's all a lie!
So you're saying they can read? That's awfully presumptuous of you!
I don't know...this just made sense to me...
Oooooo, the irony!
No, you couldn't do that. Quite frankly, you really only need to do this with the football and basketball teams. The entire university wouldn't be relegated; just that particular team. They could still see revenue from the conference but at a lesser, predetermined percentage. The university still sees money and the non-revenue sports still receive their exposure on the BTN. I know it's not as simple as this, but that's where I think you would need to at least start.
Also, keep in mind that this wouldn't be a yearly thing. I think it would need to be at least 2 year averages. It gives a chance for a school with an abnormal down season to stay around while showing a trend with the schools constantly at the lower end of the spectrum.
You forgot his misspelling of "you're" and his lack of punctuation though.
The best model I've seen was one that kept the divisions the same and just limiting the relegation to FCS schools. Division II offers limited scholarships and Division III doesn't offer scholarships. Bringing those into the fold would create a bit of anarchy and certainly issues with stadium capacity (can you imagine Ohio State playing at Mt. Union who has a 5,600 stadium seating capacity?) among numerous other issues, including player safety (as noted last year when we played Florida A&M, the chasm in the talent level would be even greater and pose a greater risk).
I think each of the Power 5 conferences would need to be paired with a Group of Five regional conference (say B1G with the MAC and ACC with the AAC) and 1 regional FCS conference. This allows for continuity, keeps teams within a region together, and helps further recruiting within a region as well, even for those lower schools. Will this ever come to fruition? I highly doubt it. There are a lot of moving cogs in this for it to work and a lot of people would need to be on the same page to even make it a possibility...but I do think it could work.
This is why relegation should be used. With profit sharing, you need to earn your keep. If you continue to not progress, then let another team come in who may be able to perform. Of course there should be stipulations for teams making a step up that would not equal the entire amount provided by the conference, maybe say an escrow, until certain criteria is met over a set number of years. Until something like that happens, leeches will still suck the life out of the conference and those teams who are trying to get compete regionally and nationally. I'm looking at you, Illinois and Purdue!
Ooooh, another VT thread? I have something to add to it!
I'm a huge fan of this guy...
And anything they show on Reading Rainbow is a-okay with me!
Hove...but maybe that's why it's a problem.
I have not seen an approval for this come by my desk.
Well, it was Fitzgerald's number in college. That's the only reference to it that I can see.
And less mascara along with some tape over that nipple ring...would hate to see that thing get yanked out accidentally.
I agree...I couldn't find a gif that had it. Probably should have just gone with the video instead
Yeah, you haven't been around these parts very long. I wouldn't begin judging any part of Ramzy's bourbon knowledge.
No you shouldn't. Google approves of this image.
It's as difficult as boiling water but with a significantly tastier payoff.
