that deemphasizes the current polls works for me. If they want to blow up the current polling system, I'd be fine with poll driven selections, but until that happens, using them is pointless. It doesn't matter HOW you use them, they are crap so the result from using them will be crap.

|1 year 12 weeks ago||Honestly....||
If they don't do something about this dumb polling process (the method they use to rank these teams in the first place) it doesn't matter if they have a playoff or not. Garbage in = Garbage out regardless of what the "out" looks like.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||That....||
makes me nervous actually. Isn't there some sort of "rule" around this? With the crap the NCAA comes up with in the form of "rules" this seems like something they'd have thought of, no?
|1 year 15 weeks ago||This only works||
if they change how the rankings are done. If you have a crap cake sitting in front of you, the flavor of icing is your least concern.

Scouts has him listed as a TE/DE.

They can have "#1" as long as Michigan gets "#2 - #10"

"THE University of Ohio State"....cracks me up every time.

This was a slap on the wrist.

I was at this kid's game last week and thought to myself he'd be a great fit at UM. He makes you take notice when he's on the field.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||exactly....||
this will be the biggest problem for Butch to overcome.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||What I mean by....||
"UNC wasn't ready for big time football". Here's a perfect illustration. UNC has 26 sports total (men/women combined). Alabama has 12. Alabama had over DOUBLE the amount of staff in the compliance dpeartment than UNC did and most of them were for football. I was kind of shocked when I heard that but it puts this whole thing in perspective. Players and agents had pretty much an open forum for a few years. I suspect that will change quickly now.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Living here in the area....||
I don't think it's going to be as bad as a lot of folks think and I think Butch's history at Miami and the fact they he benched a bunch of players from the start will be a big part of why it's not as bad. There is one glaring problem that Butch has and it is that he hired the cheater, knowing he was a cheater. The reality is, UNC was ill equipped to handle big time football players and agents lurking all over the place. It's much easier to manage a few basketball players than it is to manage all those highly touted football players.
I'm not making any excuses for him, but I just have this gut feeling that he's gonna get off easier than a lot of people think. When that happens, the NCSU fans are going to jump off the cliff. They're about as unstable as MSU fans.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||This is a systemic problem.....||
but for folks to realize it they have to admit they were wrong. It's much easier to blame the kid than admit they were duped or bought into the vest meme.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||I don't see how they get ANY||
I don't see how they get ANY big name until the verdict on their punishment is in. I've been wrong before though.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||What happened to....||
serving out the punishment with the team and all that crap? I'm not sure why I am angry with this whole thing. Is it because I bought in to the "he's different" crap OSU was throwing out or because they'll never be able to even the score with him?
Regardless, he's quit....move on with the speculation of the usual suspects (Pederson, Patterson, Pelini, Meyer, etc). In all honesty, we know the NCAA is about to release the fury on the school. Who really wants to go there at this point? Lane Kiffin's the only one dumb enough to go to a school with that kind of crap rolling down.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||This....||
was my first thought as well.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||An inspirational speaker once told me.....||
Character/Integrity isn't defined by what you are doing when the cameras are rolling and all eyes are on you. Character/Integrity is defined by what you do when no one is watching.

Hoke and company can recruit with the best of them. Now they have to get results on the field. If their ability to coach is 1/3 their ability to recruit, they'll be alright by 2012
|2 years 1 week ago||If I had to guess....||
it goes something like this:
"meh...we knew he was blue all the way. MD doesn't like small guys and really didn't want him. We're recruiting nationally now and we can find better players elsewhere"
something like that.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||I wonder this also....||
I don't get the quick locking and even sometimes complete removal of threads Are they that high strung?
|2 years 2 weeks ago||Went over there...||
for the first time last week to lurk. Holy crap, I can't stop reading it now. If there was a message board version of a train wreck, it's that page.

Only when I see it, will I believe it.
|2 years 4 weeks ago||Majorly disappointing article....||
It's intellectually lazy IMO. Why on earth do you take one team from a conference and label the whole conference? This is why I HATE "conference" talk. It always devolves into this kind of lazy thinking. I had little use for Tony prior to this, now even less....if that's possible. I get that they do this to generate traffic, but any writer worth their salt can do so without resorting to this garbage.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||All of this....||
still points back to the alums. Shame on them for allowing themselves to be kept away or shame on them for not wanting to be involved. And since when does one have to be "invited" back to their home? That's simple BS also.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||This is very true....||
all fan bases have them. It's proportion that is concerning when talking about OSU.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Coming back??||
Where are they going to go? Posey might be a 3-4 round type of player, the others would be doing themselves a disservice to leave.

Going to NCSU per ESPN....not sure how reliable they are though.

Personally, I think you are missing on the "why" people are comparing him to Carr. A lot of folks liked things just the way they were under Carr and that's why we get the comparison to Carr, not because Hoke was on his staff. There is a lot of belief out there that if they get to winning 9-10 games a year and about .500 in bowl games then Michigan is "back".
