I wish Day called out Frost on all the head hunting out there.
Would Day apologize to TTUN if he did that?
With all of these holes on defense and the online, does our 2021 recruiting class match our needs?
Is anyone else getting really bothered by how they are doing the crowd noise? It's so ridiculous that they won't partially fill up the stadium like the other conferences. The crowd noise sometimes doesn't match the play because it's just constant. There is no up and down.
I think it's expected for all the teams to start of shaky on defense. This is beginning to look like the Bama/Ole Miss shootout.
Anyone know of what the minimum number of games is needed to qualify for the CFP? I'm assuming a few games will get cancelled with covid so starting out with only 8 games will be tough. If we miss 1-2, can we really qualify with 6-7 games?
Wow. This really brings to light on if football is king in those cities. The mayor of Tuscaloosa county would never dare come out and say something like this. It's also interesting that Dan Mullen wants the stadium at full capacity and gets his wish even though the game got rescheduled and had a covid outbreak. Those mayors would be better off putting their heads together to be part of the solution.
I don't think HC experience is the driving force in choosing. I was watching some of the gambles in the games yesterday like doing a fake punt or going for it in certain 4th down situations. We want someone who will be aggressive at the right time. I'm not sure who I would pick to do a fake onside kick or something like that during the game. Great coaches know when do do those calls and don't question themselves.
I think it starts with the investment in football. I think only Vandy doesn't invest in coaches/facilities like the rest of the SEC. They have the most talent by just looking at the number of players drafted into the NFL every year which also allows for other teams to occasionally win the natty. In the case of the B1G, there are so many teams that don't invest in football and take all that B1G money so the chances of a natty is realistically from 4-5 teams max. If the B1G wants to change things, the poor conference leadership has to try to get schools like Rutgers to invest more into football to raise the whole conference. We need to upgrade our conference cupcakes.
I was wondering if Urban could come back for a game if Coach Day was out.
I think they test daily if the game is that week. For the fans, they all get tested on the thursday and if clear, can enter the stadium on Saturday. I think they will have to reduce crowds. Florida going at full capacity is going to be a problem.
I think that the game can go either way. Mac Jones currently has the #1 QBR in D1. It will be interesting how he will perform with the Georgia pass rush (I don't know if Bama's O line can protect Mac Jones all game). I think Bama's receivers can create separation but I don't know if Mac Jones will have his timing down with the pass rush. As far as Bama's defense, they lose their #2 tackler (Battle) for the first half of the game so if I were Georgia, I'd be drawing up plays with the new Safety. I also think with the SEC schedule, a 1-2 loss team could get into the playoff so this game may matter but won't be the sole determination on who gets in.
Got to love the jab on the PAC12 by the SEC
Rather than going after punitive damages, maybe focus on getting your girls out of that situation. It can't be healthy for them to grow up like that. Good luck and I hope all parties recover and move on.
At this point, the best news out of a no season vote would be a mass layoff with B1G leadership due to the football revenue shortfall.
Anyone know why the news of the vote hasn't come out yet. If it really happened yesterday why are they waiting on an announcement?
I'm expecting the worst. The common sense approach would be to meet with the CFP committee and ask them how many games we need to play to be considered for the playoff and work backwards from that nunmber to determine a start date. Just picking our own date and hoping to be included is crazy and inline with everything happening. Can we just fire everyone involved and replace them with more competent administrators?
If we had half the teams as vocal as Nebraska, this would all be a non issue and we would be playing. I do wonder if they didn't join, would we even be at the point of a re-vote because no one is pushing as hard as them and being as public.
BIG 10 decision based on erroneous data
As the paper the B1G and PAC 12 relied on to make their decision to postpone football gets examined, medical experts are calling the information faulty. Dr. Venka Murthy, Rubenfire Professor of preventive cardiology at the University of Michigan said the paper should be corrected or retracted. Professor Darrel Francis, cardiologist, from London pointed out several statistical errors and miscalculations.
In short, they made this decision based on a load of horse @$#$@
