Conference Divisions Need to Be Scrapped ASAP

Conference Divisions Need to Be Scrapped ASAP

Submitted by uofmfan_13 on December 2nd, 2018 at 11:57 AM

This weekend, so-called champ week, needs to be a culmination of the best in each conference. Instead it's a joke with Pitt, northwestern, and Utah represented.

End the stupid divisions ASAP and bring college football into the light.

How can grassroots fans get this done? Boycott the current set up? Did my best yesterday flipping on bama vs Georgia only when close in 2nd half.

We all know which is number one, but for those of you starving for some CFB pageantry, which teams fight song makes your toes tap? (Or which one "slaps" with "BDE" for anyone born after 1993)

 

My two are Texas A&M because of it being a giant middle digit to Texas and I'd also like to visit Kyle Field just to join into that arm locking deal that they do when they sing about "sawing varsity's horns off"

Also some love to Georgia Tech due to the lyrics mentioning drinking whiskey and being a "helluva engineer"

Who ya got for your best and worst?

If your interest in college football extends beyond Michigan—or even if it doesn't—this website contains a vast amount of information that's well organized, very easy to use, and potentially valuable in bar bets.

For example, you could probably win some decent cash from Florida St. partisans with this bit of info: what CFB program has more total NFL draft picks, FSU or Purdue?

It's also useful for just general amusement: which of these three programs has the smallest number of NFL draft picks—Idaho, Bowling Green, or Rutgers?

Temple up early on Memphis, 6-0, on ESPN2.

Louisiana Tech leads Western Kentucky, 14-7, over on CBS Sports.

Arizona and SF are scoreless early on CBS (Drew Stanton getting the start for AZ).

Finally, over on TBS, Boston leads the Indians, 1-0, in the bottom of 2nd on the strength of a HanRam RBI double.

Good news. The propellor heads agreed to meet with the marine biologists at Starbucks this week.  Maybe they'll tailgate together this fall?

Headline:

Mantis Shrimp Inspires New Body Armor and Football Helmet Design

"Researchers find mantis shrimp is naturally designed to survive the repeated high-velocity blows by filtering out certain frequencies of waves"

“This is a novel concept,” said David Kisailus, the Winston Chung Endowed Professor in Energy Innovation at UC Riverside’s Bourns College of Engineering. “It implies that we can make composite materials able to filter certain stress waves that would otherwise damage the material.”

All hail, engineering and science students!

Ten College Football Freshmen To Watch In 2014

Found a random article posted by a random dude on the internet about his selections for the Ten Freshmen to Watch in college football for 2014. Seeing as how his list contained one Buckeye and one Wolverine (not the one you might guess, btw), I felt it might be of some interest here...

 

Edit: I modified the link parameters so it opens up a new window when left clicking, so people won't get shuffled off to a new site and leave the wonders of MGoBlog behind.
