Football is not the only consideration, or Rutgers never would have been admitted to the conference in the first place. There's an academic side and an overall athletic side, and compatibility and, yes, media market share are big issues. If football was the only consideration, Oklahoma would have been offered membership a long time ago. You cannot just look at this as a football issue.
I'm sure there were some of us who felt similarly during the Cooper years. That being said, it would be total hilarious justice if, assuming they did take out Young, Fields, and Dobbins, we still won behind Zach Harrison, the Chuggernaut, and Master Teague.
Clifford and Shea Patterson:
Something's got to give!
Dude, Joe Montana in his prime couldn't be any sort of successful behind that line.
They need to load up on the O-line for him to have a chance of a long career. I'm talking multiple quality picks. A quality receiver to complement McLaurin wouldn't hurt, either.
But of course, this is Dan Snyder we're talking about.
The idea is that previous years aren't supposed to mean anything to the committee. In reality? Yeah, you know there's bias. Penn State will be on the outside looking in. The loser of LSU-Bama will still have a chance, though they really shouldn't. My first four:
2) Ohio State
4) Clemson (which reminds me of 2014 FSU)
So we sell out to stop the run and make Coan beat us through the air. Taylor will likely get his yards, but if we can keep him limited, we should be okay.
Also, with the exception of the Russell Wilson era, hasn't Wisconsin had the same starting QB for the last 35 years?
Demote the Dolphins and the Redskins to the XFL, promote the top 2 XFL teams to the NFL. I see no problem with this.
Good for 12 Gauge! Only thing is he's got Pep Hamilton for a coach. Yeesh.
Also, glad to see the Tampa Bay Vipers (ehh, doesn't roll off the forked tongue very well) didn't lure The Holy Tebow like the radio morons were screaming for down here. Aaron Murray is meh, but he's a local product, so...
Right? I usually just sit and eat popcorn while watching the millennials and the boomers have at it.
That would actually be a cool idea. Maybe not practical for football, but maybe for wrestling or something, have everyone come in formal or semi-formal attire. Just to mix things up.
That is amazing. +1 just for that.
