Agreed there. Play baseball in college and operated on just as many scholarships as our softball team. Year after year they could not find enough girls to play and because they had about 12-15 less players than we did, each of them were getting about 2x that as the average baseball player. Also, we had identical budgets so we would take the bus a lot while the softball girls got to fly. I noticed other perks here and there the softball team got (field, equipment, apparel upgrades) cause they had money to spend.

If they increase the number it will only help the better teams.

Has reducing scholarships to 85 per team in 1992 really helped level the college football playing field? The most powerful programs in college football prior to 1992 are pretty much still the most powerful programs in college football today and I’d argue those programs are even more powerful and have more influence than they did 30 years ago.  If anything, I actually think 90-95 scholarships is the sweet spot and wouldn’t create any more imbalance than we have today.

Loved that they showed TBDBITL performance. I’d rather broadcasts always showed the bands rather than listening to ESPN blowhards for 20 minutes break down the first half.

Totally forgot about Purdue and I was even at that game. Still 4-1 West to about to be 0-3 East.

I think the West has some good momentum going into next year. Especially Northwestern so long as Fitz stays in Evanston.

I think Penn State takes a major step back next season despite their highly ranked recruiting classes.

I’m rooting for Jimbo at A&M to build a team to at least knock off Alabama every other year. He’s college footballs best chance to keep Nick out of the CFP.

Comment 30 Dec 2018

It’s an absolute sham that Alabama and Georgia have only played each other in the regular season 12 times in the last 41 years! Alabama and Florida have only played each other 12 times in the last 40 years. That’s what you get with an 8 game conference schedule and permanent cross over against Tennessee. Meanwhile, LSU and Florida and Auburn and Georgia are permanent crossover rivals. Bama has had the easiest freaking schedule set up for them  since Saban took over. Don’t underestimate that this goes a long way into them making the playoff every year. Way less land mines on the schedule than anyone else in football in their own division. 

Comment 30 Dec 2018

100% disagree on the expanded playoff argument. As someone said earlier, half the 20 semi final games have been decided by more than 3 touchdowns. What makes anyone think we’ll see anything more unpredictable in the 1v8 and 2v7 matchups? If we examine the results of the last 5 years, can we really look back and say there were 5-8 teams that could have realistically win it all? 8 teams is a stupid idea.

Will Oklahoma get blown out bigger than the NC game against USC in 2004?

Comment 29 Dec 2018

Here comes the fumble call reversal on the reply. Gonna go Bamas way all night long.

They along with my nephews have been wearing Michigan gear around my house all weekend. I’ve been layering Buckeye gear on myself to keep up but this shirt is really the best response. My one brother in law said he’s still not over that game. May we always win that game to make holidays with my in laws a little more enjoyable.
