you're going to see a system that doesn't even try to pick the best eight teams. Between the automatic qualifiers and special rules for non-AQ schools, 1-3 of the top eight will get left out most years. There will be plenty of complaining about deserving schools getting left out. #20 is in but #6 (or higher) is out because of one loss. The only solution, go to sixteen.
|1 day 8 hours ago||Why 8?||
When it's 8, why not make the same argument for 16? Won't complaints from the #9 team be much more valid than from the #17 team? You can always find a rationale for adding more teams. It will always be less compelling than the previous ones.
We went to 2 to avoid split titles.
We are going to 4 to avoid undefeated major conference teams maybe getting left out.
Reasons for going to 8 are far less compelling.

I'm thinking the answer is nobody, ever. Tommy Amaker, on the other hand ...

Woodson played offense in 1996 too.

how is your point total so high?

franchise is they had passed on LeBron. I'm not joking. He might well have been the biggest lock to go #1 overall of all time in any sport.

He just throws out a (stupid) blanket statement. No time frame, no context, no examples.

|4 weeks 2 days ago||Seth,||
has UM ever suspended a player for a dirty play on the field? I'm at a loss to remember any pro of college team ever doing this when the league decided not to. I am sure it must have happened somewhere, sometime, but is exceedingly rare. I think he should have been pulled from the game when it happened.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||This is so untrue.||
Until recently the NCAA had a rule, known as the BYU rule, prohibiting its championships from being held on Sundays. Any conference adding BYU is going to have to adopt that policy. Not only that, they are put in the position to advocate the NCAA readopt the rule. Adding BYU would be a major pain in the ass for us. The Big Ten holds its championships for nearly every sport but football on Sundays. Why would any major conference ever add them over any reasonable candidate?

seems pretty far-fetched to me.

Dantonio's personality is not a good match for a top program. He's never coached outside of the midwest, almost entirely MI and OH.

I'm not so sure about your take on the relative expectations for Richardson, RJS and Braden coming into the program. Braden was certainly the lowest ranked of the three. Richardson was even our #1 recruit according to ESPN. There was a lot of talk in the spring and summer about Braden, but I think it was likely blown out of proportion, certainly relative to anything anyone here actually saw.

more reliable. The whole exrecise of comparing Green and Hyde by statistics is silly anyway. Hyde was 5th or 6th string and only got carries in garbage time.

the average could never be more than 99 yards.
|6 weeks 3 hours ago||Borges may be calling the plays,||
but I have never believed he's the coach who's deciding what kind of offense to run.
|6 weeks 7 hours ago||You're mad because they put in Magnuson ahead of Braden?||
|6 weeks 2 days ago||If they reached out to Nicholson||
and he wasn't interested, would we know? If Ballage wanted to commit today, would they accept it? I don't think we know that either.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I am afraid that "respectful"||
is very much in the eye of the beholder. It's inherently disrespectful to suggest kids may want to transfer because they're aren't going to play here. If a kid is doing his best fighting for playing time, you're basically suggesting he should just give up and go away. I don't believe there is a respectful way of saying that regardless of your intentions. At least not for those of us who don't see the kids in practice and in the weight room.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||I really disagree with that argument.||
In most of these cases the school is complicit in the cheating. They purposely have feeble compliance departments run by the AD. They often know or should know about rules getting bent and broken and do nothing. They may even encourage such behavior. The differences between how OSU's compliance operated and how they claim to work now is striking. The NCAA relies on schools to police themselves. This is happening while schools realize they're getting dinged when they get caught. I can only imagine how they would operate if they knew the punishments would only fall on the coaches or boosters who got caught.
|7 weeks 3 hours ago||Well stated.||
I anticipate that whatever penalties the NCAA announces tomorrow will be roundly criticized.
|7 weeks 3 hours ago||Yes,||
we actually have fans who would post that two days after the Indiana game.

Hard to see a picture as a game day simulation. I'm sure the rule refers to things like having recruits run out of the tunnel with the team before a game.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Minnesota is not a rivalry game.||
We play for a trophy, but does anyone consider Minnesota a big rival? Maybe they were long ago. We aren't creating rivalries based on what happened during the RR years. Sure, if Penn St can maintain that winning percentage and win a fair share of division titles, then maybe it will become a rivalry game for us. I can't see it reaching the level of the OSU and MSu games.
