I'm crossing my fingers that it can still be this year. I want us to be their Clemson game, and that includes Lincoln Riley trying to punch a player. But he looks a little slight of frame tbh, plus coaching a team that doesn't hit anyone... so I'll be satisfied if he settles for trying to punch the waterboy.
It would appear there is none to be found.
That would be interesting, tbh. Talk about must watch TV.
I think the NFL having a minor league system could be an amazing thing. It would potentially allow for football year round, bring high level football to areas of the country that currently don't have it, allow certain players to develop and actually have a real shot in the league, all while potentially making the quality of play better at the highest level. I think about places like Toledo & Tulsa having teams, that would be really neat.
But it's not something I think should happen at the expense of college football, and whether you realize it or not, that's sort of what you're advocating for. The two ideas could easily coexist if minor league football were played in the spring time.
As far as college football in general is concerned, it's fine by me. The goal of an educational institution is to prepare students to achieve professional status in a chosen field, whether it be their major or minor. College football if you think about it, is technically a major for the more talented student athletes & a minor for others. You send a player to the league, then professor Ryan Day/Urban Meyer have successfully done their job. Besides, nobody is forced to play, let's not treat the game as some institutionalized injustice.
2/3's, but not the entirety. And in a way, it's still more reliable than a committee, especially with the addition of the playoff format.
I was on OU's fan forum after the Watts de-commitment. Many of them think that Alex Grinch's coaching has carried over to this season for us, and that our defensive improvement is partly attributed to Grinch somehow.... I'm confused. Also, we play in a weak offensive conference, it's easy for our defense to eat everyone alive in the B10. Did I mention we haven't played anyone & our schedule sucks? Cupcakes anybody? Apparently there's enough for everyone on our schedule.
I harbor a supreme disdain for that fanbase's collective arrogance, and I'm not so patiently awaiting to watch the Grinch experiment blow up in their face.
