You want to take an already subjective process that selects the teams, then add more subjectivity by awarding #1 and #2 a bye ? No thanks. The difference between #2, #3, and #4 is often too subtle to give that big of a reward to someone based again, on subjectivity

Nobody was mentioning Urban Meyer then. He was still a WR coach at Notre Dame and got the Bowling Green job at the same time OSU hired Tressel. Same with Beckman, he was still an assistant at BG when Tressel was hired.

Teague actually played in the highest division in Tennessee High School Football. I think he was injured and that was why he was underrated.

I agree that LJ knows a bit more than me :) 

I’m not an expert, just telling you what I saw. Most guys that caliber really jump out at you when you see them in high school. Of course they’re running away him, but it’s ok to pursue those plays too once you’re assured there’s no reverse. 

Comment 03 Oct 2019

I’d expect someone with that much athletic ability to make some plays against HS competition, albeit Brentwood Academy is a good team. I’m talking about effort and motor, pursuing the play when it’s away from you and that kind of stuff. I just see him standing around a lot.

Is anybody else watching Tyler Baron on ESPN2 ?

 I’m not seeing any intensity out of him at all. Does a lot of standing around and doesn’t seem to have a high motor. It’s not what I expected to see.

Even right now, Tennessee is a much better job than Iowa State or Wake Forest. You’ve seen Tennessee’s floor. And this is pretty much Iowa State’s ceiling. Tennessee’s ceiling is frequent conference championships and a National Championship. That’s just not in the cards at Iowa State, Kansas, Wake Forest, Indiana.

Tennessee doesn’t belong on a list of terrible jobs. They’ve made bad coaching hires, but a good to great coach can achieve there. They’re only twenty years removed from a National Championship. They finished 13 th in recruiting last year and are in the Top 25 for 2020. They have great facilities and fan support considering how bad they’ve been. And they have improving in state talent ( more blue chips than Ohio for 2020 ) . Their proximity to Georgia and other recruiting hotbeds make them far from a bad job.

I hate them and want them to lose every game by 100, but it’s a good job in the right hands.

I know it makes some people nervous, but I’d go to that game without tickets with100% confidence I’m gonna get a better deal day of game than you’ll get from a third party site or an individual selling now. I know some people just can’t do that and that why tickets on third party sites are always high weeks and months before the game.

It’s possible for both to have a financial interest. Yes, CBS clearly has a ton of incentive. (Their deal with the SEC expires in 2023, BTW) It’s amazing that that deal only pays the SEC $55M per year. They get an exclusive spot on a network that has no distractions with other games or contracts. CBS spends more to broadcast that game too. Better sound and cameras are evident. CBS uses 15-20 cameras a game and most networks use 8-10 for college games. 

Comment 15 Sep 2019

There was an ESPN.com article the day before the ACC Network launched titled ‘Thanks to Clemson, the ACC is better than you think’

And obviously it would be impossible to pump up the ACC this year and have any reasonable claim to objectivity.

Comment 10 Sep 2019

That’s an old picture, though I doubt they’re drawing much better now.

The Dolphins did an awesome renovation of Hard Rock Stadium to increase shade for fans, which makes sense since the Dolphins play most of their home games at 1:00 Eastern. I don’t know how to embed pictures but here’s a link to what it looks like now. Capacity now is 66,000

Comment 22 Aug 2019

He may not leave in three, but I doubt he’s here for five which is only when a redshirt matters. You certainly don’t rush him if he’s not ready, but I’d never ‘save’ a redshirt year for a talented kid hoping they’re here for five.

Comment 04 Aug 2019

Best of luck, but it’s not looking good.

Rosters are at 90 right now, so every team has 37 guys on the roster that won’t be on the final 53. Being released so they can sign somebody else to the 90 man roster isn’t a good sign at all. If he’s not in a camp real soon it may be time to look at doing something else. 

Comment 02 Aug 2019

Yeah, a lot of people ignore the math. I read a pre Super Bowl article a couple years ago that said recruit rankings don’t matter. Half of the participants were three star or less.

What it failed to mention is that three star or less are 90% of recruits for any given year. So 10% (4 + 5 *s) comprise 50% of SB rosters, while 90% of the other signees make up the other 50%.

Comment 28 Jul 2019

Yeah, when I see a kid and his five top schools are Auburn, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and LSU I don’t see him leaving the conference. 

Comment 24 Jul 2019

Some of these violations are ticky tack and ridiculous.

But how in the hell did someone in compliance and the football office not know that you can’t split scholarships in Football ?  I mean, that’s not an obscure little known rule. I bet 95% of fans who follow recruiting know that. It’s unbelievable that someone in compliance thought you could and that someone in the football office believed them.
