They're the new Tennessee.
There's a significant gap from the top 6 and the rest. They're the clear blue bloods of the sport.
They need to stop making immediate eligibility so easy to get. Like it or not, there needs to be a penalty for transferring, barring some extreme circumstance. I don't care if guys transfer, but there needs to be a penalty for doing it in most cases. Otherwise you have chaos.
Ejections should only ever happen for fighting, throwing punches, etc. No one should ever be ejected for a hit. I'd rather someone stay in the game after a dirty hit (which I feel rarely ever happens; people act like dirty hits happen constantly but they don't), than someone get ejected on BS call. Making the targeting rule better is simple. Just get rid of the damn ejection component.
I'd hope the assistants would be loyal to the program and not to a coach.
I think since the 2015 game was fresh off of the inexplicable Sparty loss, it may have slightly hindered some people's enjoyment. We knew the 2015 team was better than they played most of the season. So it made it frustrating to some extent cause it was like, where the hell was this all season?
I guarantee you the coaches hate it. They won't say that publically though cause it'd make them look bad. You have to be crazy to think this is good for the sport. Way too much uncertainty and chaos. Makes it almost impossible to plan for the future.
It's a kinda bitch move for sure. I get the whole doing what's best for me thing, but there should come a point when someone helped you out that you return the favor. You shouldn't just immediately bolt as soon as you get unhappy. It's irritating to me when people just make decisions and don't give any consideration as to the impact of their decisions on others.
The rules should be based around the majority, not the 1% or less players that could potentially make it in the NFL early. So yeah, I hope they never change the rule.
I don't know why people keep trying to create these other leagues. The NFL and CFB is enough. I think most people don't watch these leagues because they've had enough football by February and aren't interested in following another league for the next 4 months. It's oversaturation. This is why these leagues continue to fail. We don't need an alternative.
I don't understand why Virginia didn't get hit with backcourt at the end of regulation. Is that allowed after a foul shot? Is it because it was tipped (although to me it didn't look any Purdue player ever touched the ball)? Seemed strange to me they were allowed to tip it all the way to other end.
The committee doesn't care about SOS. They proved that when they picked Bama in 2017. Bama's best nonconference game that year was Fresno St. That was a perfect opportunity to show SOS matters. OSU's schedule was way better but the committee took the easy way out. So yeah until those morons stop using the made up "eye test" to include teams, SOS will continue to be irrelevant.
Auburn is the new Tennessee. Begin the year in the top 10 and finish with 4-5 losses. Funny how everyone forgets they usually end up being just a slightly above average team year after year.
It's not all about money. That will come soon enough. Probably doesn't want to regret passing up another opportunity for a championship.
Clemson is now on the ESPN payroll. So that's why it's not a big deal. ESPN controls what's a big deal and what's not.
I'm willing to bet they cheat more than most though.
I'd agree with you if they were an unusual penalty, but unfortunately they're not. They're called way too frequently. I disagree with like 90% of personal fouls I see called. To me unsportsmanlike should only be called basically for throwing a punch or something very egregious. I don't give a shit about a little push after the play. I hate when that stuff impacts the game and too often it does. Penalties should pretty much never have an impact on the game IMO.
Biggest rule change I wish they'd make in football is getting rid of the auto first down for personal fouls and changing it from 15 yards to 10 yards. I don't think there's anyway to eliminate these terrible calls without wasting time with constant replays. So the next best thing is to reduce their impact. If a team has 3rd and 30, they shouldn't get a first down cause a DL touched the QB's helmet. That's just idiotic.
Agreed completely. There's absolutely no argument for Georgia over OSU unless if you're simply biased and/or an idiot. These rankings should attempt to eliminate subjectivity as much as possible, because subjectivity is more open to being totally wrong.
The frustrating thing is SEC teams always get the benefit of the doubt. They typically have the highest one loss team, the highest two loss team, etc. Bama has to lose twice to even remotely have a chance of not making the playoffs. Same for Clemson now. So each and every year we're basically guaranteed Bama and Clemson in the playoff. Those teams aren't losing twice, especially Clemson who continues to play an absolute joke of a schedule and is never penalized for it.
Regarding last year, I like how we kept hearing about body of work, body of work, but in the end OSU solely got left out cause of Purdue. If you really care about body of work, you wouldn't put all your stock in that one game.
You should have to sit out a year if you transfer, no matter what, unless if you didn't play enough time. In general the transfer process should be discouraged and done only if absolutely necessary. Not a fan of the grad transfer rule cause people aren't actually using it for what it was intended.
My takeaway is that the P5 conferences are all about the same (excluding P12). So anyone talking about how great a certain conference is, is full of shit.
That's assuming those SEC west teams are actually as good as their ranking indicates, which is a bit of leap. Last I recall, the SEC west hadn't done too well in bowls lately.
There needs to be general rules that everyone needs to follow regarding NC scheduling. Like you have to have at least 1 P5 team every year. No FCS teams. No G5 teams in November. Just have blanket rules like that to minimize the disparity among the P5 schedules.
Somehow the entire SEC will still have a tougher SOS. Probably cause all the SEC teams get overrated and therefore inflate their SOS.
