Gene didn't like it but didn't come down firmly one way or the other.
“That one I’ve thought about a little bit,” said Smith. “I struggle with that concept. When I first heard [games without fans] I said, ‘OK, that could work.’ But if we don’t have fans in the stands, we’ve determined it’s not safe for them in a gathering environment. Why would it be safe for the players?”
Not really relevant to FBS football. Ivy League doesn't offer athletic scholarships. Basically all of those kids are attending either way, so the sports are just an expense and/or risk for spreading infection.
I agree on Sumlin. He definitely rode Johnny Football to success and has basically never done anything without him.
Lane Kiffin is overrated in the sense that he gets way too much publicity, but at the same time he's spent the past few years at FAU and now at Ole Miss, so it's not exactly like he's still failing upwards.
Ferentz is overrated 50% of the time. If it's a season where they're supposed to be good he's a lock to go 7-5. If people don't expect anything they're going to win 9-10 games again.
Jimbo has a ring though. Sure he's overpaid, but he's still got a title and a Heisman to his credit, which is more than a vast majority of coaches.
EDIT: Also meant to add that last year they went 8-5, which doesn't look great until you look the schedule The five losses were to Clemson, Auburn, Bama, UGA and LSU. Those teams finished 1, 2, 4, 5 and 9 in the final rankings, so none of them could you really consider an embarrassing loss. When you look at this year, its the total opposite and they're basically a lock to go 6-0. If they beat Auburn they're very likely going to be 10-0 before finishing with Bama and LSU.
I think Tom Herman WAS overrated, but it seems like he's gotten a lot more hate in the past few seasons to where people wouldn't be shocked if he fired if they underperform again. Ergo he's properly rated at the moment.
Honest question - isn't he just gonna absolutely dominate a bunch of (no offense) scrubs? Will the NBA scouts really be able to dissect his 30/15 lines every night when he's getting defended by future insurance salesmen instead of D1/pro prospects?
That actually sounds cheap. AT&T pays like $20m per year to put their name on a stadium everyone still refers to as Jerryworld.
Just change the mascot to a potato and this whole controversy fixes itself.
If you went based on best single season numbers it would have been Fields or Haskins, and if you went by career then Barrett’s a no brained. Basically this was locked up either way.
Braxton was also named all-purpose player (along with Mr Peppers).
Seems unlikely Miller loses the battle going into next year and then rides the bench for two consecutive years. Its also unlikely that McCord is the backup over Miller next year.
Agreed. Hooker was obviously amazing but all I really want out of a safety is to never see 50 yard touchdown passes. If a CB gets beat it’s Proctors job to limit the damage. Anything on top of that is a bonus.
There aren’t final official rankings. They name an MVP then the “top performers” are listed alphabetically.
I...have no idea what you're talking about. But I'm very sorry you're upset and hope you pull through.
Ryan Kerrigan and JJ Watt.
Easy selections for them both. Congrats.
I like Zeke, but RB is probably the easiest to replace. You could easily have Eddie George or MoC or Dobbins and I wouldn't really complain
That was my first thought, but using these rules you would then have to lose Davis and replace him with a guard from the Tressel era (or do a lot more shuffling).
The legal fees?
(In all seriousness, we really need to just agree on a nickname for this guy and just exclusively use that. These headlines always cause a second of anxiety.)
If it goes into the Spring then Fields isn't playing. But I'd still take our chances with Stroud (besides, the other teams would be having the same problems - ie, Lawrence is gone too).
I'm in the northeast and our grocery store has de facto bouncers. They're limiting the number of people in the store and if you don't have a mask you're not getting in.
This is advice I follow like 95% of the time. Every once in a while I decide to "win" one and get stubborn as hell, just to occasionally tell myself I can. I'm basically the Purdue of the marriage.
I don’t think you get a QB in return. You trade your QB in order to get those guys from last year. In this hypothetical we’re probably still better with Fields and not those guys than Stroud with those guys.
It’s gonna be Barrett.
