you should go watch this kid play. He's pretty good. I'd love to see him at Michigan. Tons of potential.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Guys....||
this isn't a competition thing. It's a $$ thing. I live in the CLT area and go to this game just about every year for free. This year, they were giving 50 yard line tickets away. When it was all said and done, their average ticket prices was under $10 per. That changes if they get Clemson playing FSU. Schools here don't travel like those in the B1G outside of FSU and Clemson and this year the FSU fans didn't really travel all that well.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||The motivation here is....||
to boost sales to their conference championship game. I live in the Charlotte, NC area and get tickets to this game all the time. This year, they were giving away 50 yard line tickets. The average cost per ticket was under $10 when all was said and done. Reality is, until Miami gets their crap together and starts playing football again, it's always going to be either FSU or Clemson vs no one anyone wants to see. If I were Swafford, I'd be doing a realignment and putting Clemson on the other side of FSU. The current alignments were driven by basketball rivalries prior to them poaching the bball schools from the BE. Now that they have those schools the original rivalries can't exist anyway so they might as well blow the whole thing up. Swafford is a trainwreck.

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.

|2 years 2 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.
|2 years 3 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?
|2 years 5 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.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||exactly....||
this will be the biggest problem for Butch to overcome.
|2 years 38 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.
|2 years 38 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.
|2 years 41 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.
|2 years 41 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.
|2 years 41 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.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||This....||
was my first thought as well.
|2 years 41 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.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||I am sold that....||
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 42 weeks 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 43 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 43 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.

That is all.

Only when I see it, will I believe it.
|2 years 46 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 47 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 50 weeks ago||This is very true....||
all fan bases have them. It's proportion that is concerning when talking about OSU.
