I looked at the comments specifically to see if anyone commented on that fact.  Jackets have looked good, but in a tight series things can turn quickly.  It still isn't over.  But, the hubris was a bit over the top, I thought.  That shtick where you call the championship early as if it already happened was a once in a lifetime call from DJ.  And I agree he should own it, but I'd probably use a more blunt object than you did.  I didn't DV you.

Football is a great sport to watch.  The problem with it is, there is infinitely more time spent talking about it and speculating on it than time spent watching it.  Mock drafts the week before the draft have a low hit rate, yet they still get done.  And we immediately turn the page to next year’s draft, even though there are so many variables, you may as well be forecasting the weather for the same day as the draft.  This isn’t a knock on 11W.  It’s a knock on football writers everywhere.  Create content where none is needed.

I agree that it is absurd to punish kids that have graduated.  They aren’t the problem.  I think requiring two years before a free transfer is a good idea.  Increase the odds that they are making a good decision, not an emotional one.

I think all answers have a flaw in terms of who you recruit.  If you recruit two studs, you increase the odds that you have a good qb, but you know the loser will leave if they are good.  If you only recruit one stud and one more backup type guy, what happens if the stud doesn’t develop?  Seems you are earning your paycheck more now than in the past.  If you choose poorly, you can sink your season, if you are a coach.

I'm a Bengals fan, but loved LeBeau except as our head coach.  Respected the heck out of him.  Agree on recruiting.  Also agree on not sure if its a great move or not.  Creating turmoil at a rival is good though.  Day knows more about what he's doing than any of us.  My point was as much new fresh ideas are more important on offense.  Defense is more about soundness where tried and true still works.

Time will tell if the right moves are being made, but being able to take something from crap to mediocre is not the same as taking something good and making it great.  We all thought/hoped that his ability to make an awful defense mediocre out west would show genius with real talent.  That didn't work out last year to some extent.  Wish the guy nothing but the best, but not sure if it is a big loss or not.  Schiano has been around long enough that I'm willing to think last year was an outlier.  It's Day's call, and I think it is easier to question Bill Davis' value versus saying Schiano is the problem.

The problem I have, is he has on occasion crossed over a line of confidence into a little desperation.  I don't like what amounts to direct comments to Fields.  When he does that, he sounds like he lacks confidence and knows his best hope to play and start is to keep Fields from coming.  When he talks about the confidence in his game, I agree with you.  When he spoke and tried to make it sound like he was doing Fields a solid telling him the offense is tough to pickup and he doesn't want him to be disappointed, I wish he would instead say "No comment".

I can’t agree more with this. The problem isn’t the playoffs it’s the committee. They have unchecked power. There are no agreed upon criteria. It’s all the eye test. Force Notre Dame to join a conference and make it a rule that if you don’t play in conference title game you don’t get consideration. I’d like to see the conferences put up one team they want considered and then let the committee decide top 4 of 5 teams but we all know we need a path to multiple sec teams. I’d love the committee pick the top four champions, personally. 

Comment 01 Dec 2018

Too bad scheduling in the sec keeps these teams from playing during the season. 

Comment 30 Nov 2018

SEC would never sign off on that.  They think they have 10 of the top 5 teams in the country.  The system as it stands benefits that conference.  If the ADs of schools in the Big Ten, Pac 12, and Big 12 don't speak up, it won't change. 

We will all be asked why we aren't in favor of the best 4 teams making the playoffs.
