Re: “Change is in the Air” ~ Dennis Dodd

None of this would be happening now if the NCAA hadn't impossed Draconian rules on the kids while also being a huge shield for the schools who were the ones to blame for the rule breaking in the beginning. I agree, the schools with their greed, the NCAA posing as a governing body while hiding it’s ...

Re: “Change is in the Air” ~ Dennis Dodd

Yep, with the new Transfer Rules, the NIL, the expansion of the CFP, the recent Supreme Court Ruling along with the shot the Consent Option gave about any future antitrust cases being brought before the court have crippled the NCAA as a governing body. In any event, to me conference realignment is i...

Re: “Change is in the Air” ~ Dennis Dodd

I don’t know how this thing is going to end up looking……… right now I can’t say with any shred of certainty if the hole is getting rounder or if the hole is becoming a smaller square. But I must say I’m one of those guys who if I don’t like a movie I won’t hesitate to simply get-up and leave and tak...

Re: Frank Solich Retires………..

He did a good job in Athens. Especially concidering the recruiting problems that you have to deal with at OU. Yes sir, Solich found a home in Athens and did well……. and in the meantime Nebraska continues to struggle. I see where Scott Frost is on the Hot Seat and the prognosis is not good. :? :?

………and the hits just keep on coming

………I can hardly wait to read the reply. Non-revenue generating sports using an incident that was quickly remedied as an example of inequality. Sometimes I wonder just what has happened to saying ‘Thank you for financing our sport and providing us an opportunity to play and for quickly correcting the...

Re: 6--8--10--12--16

No question about it being the money and the only ocean I’ve seen in Iowa is full of cornstalks……. But in any event, I don’t know of any “schools” or “football programs” Las Vegas has built over the decades.

Re: 6--8--10--12--16

Good stuff gentlemen……… we all could take any position surrounding this, whether it be inclusiveness, practicality, fairness, or any other issue and make the case for it pro or con and be correct. As Spence so accurately put it, “So much of College Football is politics.”, and as we all also know, po...

Re: 6--8--10--12--16

It ain't basketball...you can not have "the best play for it" and also be inclusive of 122 programs... Sine 2018, more than 1/2 of the five star talent has landed at just four schools...Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, or Ohio State....talent is concentrated. The SEC has signed 123 Five stars.....

Re: 6--8--10--12--16

Silly Pretend World...where we believe that a win counts the same, whether it is over Toledo or Ohio State. Where we think that a Champ of the MAC (Miami of Ohio in 2019) who plays Ball State, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Akron, Bowling Green, Kent State, Ohio, etc....equates to be the same as a team...
