Name change back to Chick-Fil-A PEACH Bowl

Name change back to Chick-Fil-A PEACH Bowl

Submitted by PB-J Time on April 25th, 2013 at 8:59 AM

To some this may not be a big deal, but to me (and it would seem Brian & Seth) changing the bowl names to only have the sponsors has been annoying at best, if not tradition-destroying money-grubbing. I thought this was ill-fit for the new playoff system and it appears that the organizers agree. For the new playoff (which the long running game in Atlanta will be a part off), the bowl will change the name back to Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl

OT: Florida's Bold new Recruiting Strategy

OT: Florida's Bold new Recruiting Strategy

Obviously, Florida's recruiting strategy has been in trouble lately. Watching last year's offense was painful, and it's clear that they need some help when it comes to talent. They've decided to really up the ante by posting bad photoshops to their twitter accounts, which EDSBS has happily compiled for our viewing. Most of these are way too good to be missed.

Jordan Kovacs Profile

Jordan Kovacs Profile

A pre-draft profile on former Team 133 captain, Jordan Kovacs by Meinke at MLive.

Either way, he's just asking for a chance.

"I’m hoping for the best, preparing for the worst," Kovacs said. "That’s always been my approach. If I get picked, that’ll be great. If not, I’ve beaten the odds before.

"It’ll be a challenge either way, whether I’m picked in the fifth round, or whether I’m undrafted. It’s going to be a dogfight just to make a roster. I’m looking forward to the challenge."

 

It must be JORDAN KOVACS DAY since it looks like Angelique wrote one over at the Detroit News.

 

I'm rooting for him to get drafted or sign-on as a post-draft FA.

#1 on Charles Woodson's post football bucket list from the Houston Chronicle:

The No. 1 to-do item on Woodson's post-football bucket list will be to return to Napa Valley to participate in the fall harvest, something he's never done, for obvious reasons. But he's confident, even certain, it won't happen this year. He'll play somewhere. When the Packers signed him in 2006, that deal wasn't done until late April. For now, selling wine is Woodson's top priority.

New College Football Playoff Name Revealed! (It's not Leaders Legends)

Submitted by desmondintherough on April 23rd, 2013 at 4:39 PM

Sources have revealed the new name of the college playoff starting in 2014.  See here: http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/9204021/college-football-playoff-expected-new-name-four-team-playoff-sources

 

EDIT: Apparently the tongue-in-cheek title was not getting through to some people.  The new playoff name is, get ready for it...College Football Playoff.  Yes, really.

Petition Against GA Student Section

Petition Against GA Student Section

Submitted by kirtip on April 23rd, 2013 at 3:46 PM

I held off on posting this for a while, but now that the petition has gained significant support, I thought I would post it here for any students interested in signing it. As of now it has over 3000 signatures. 

I know that many people on here are in favor of the GA seating, but for those who don't, this is a chance to voice your opinion and hope for some form of change. If you are for the GA system, simply ignore this post and do not sign.

In my opinion, I think this could lead to at least a GA by section policy, still giving some level of seniority by credits.

Edit: Forgot to include the link.

Also, I understand many of you don't agree, but I think all the negging is a little much. Its a relevant topic and many people are against GA as well.
