|2 days 23 hours ago||He spoke out....||
and said things everyone here was thinking. He challenged the authority of the coach and management and was released. His agent said it all. He deserves much better than what the Panther coaches and front office are delivering. Everyone on that team does. Lots of pissed off Panther fans down here right now and rightfully so.

is what I want to see. Oddly enough, the offense looked like it took a step forward last week, but that was missed for all the errors the defense made. I have to remind myself daily that this offense is learning a brand new system. If Hoke is to blame for anything it was waiting too long to make a move on Borges IMO. He's put himself in a no win situation.
ETA: I want to see Brandon shown the door as well. I've had enough.
|7 weeks 6 hours ago||The AP rankings....||
Don't matter to committee (supposedly). It's been nice to not have all the ranking discussion going on like we usually have. Oct 28 is the first ranking that's going to matter. We'll see what the committee comes out with.

you should go watch this kid play. He's pretty good. I'd love to see him at Michigan. Tons of potential.

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.
|41 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 38 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 39 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 40 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.

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.
|3 years 21 weeks ago||exactly....||
this will be the biggest problem for Butch to overcome.
|3 years 21 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.
|3 years 21 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.
|3 years 24 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.
|3 years 25 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.
|3 years 25 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.
|3 years 25 weeks ago||This....||
was my first thought as well.

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.
|3 years 26 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
|3 years 26 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.
|3 years 27 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?
|3 years 27 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.
