Posted Saturday April 14, 2012, About: Who's Looking Good at your U?
I'm interested to see who gets the starting nod at RB at tOSU. I know that Jordan Hall is still on the roster and has the most experience, but I liked what Carlos Hyde did in the 2nd/3rd string roles depending on the availability of Herron. At the very least I want to see him take the goal line carries because he showed off some power last season, something that Hall is not the best at.
Posted Wednesday February 08, 2012, About: Winning a SuperBowl Does NOT Make one Elite
I think I'm making a fair point, but let me spell out my idea even more - the Giants are little more than a tournament champion. Maybe we can talk about them as elite if we ONLY look at the playoffs, but when you look at the entirety of the 2011-2012 season, the Giants were certainly not elite.

How can we talk about a team as elite when they were barely over .500?
Posted Tuesday January 31, 2012, About: The Perfect BCS System
The winner of the BCS game is referred to as the "BCS National Champion" - not the NCAA national champion. The AP refers to it's selected champion as the "AP National Champion." The only difference is that the BCS actually plays a game.

I don't know about people thinking about past championships as mythical... why would fan bases such as Alabama/ND constantly point out how many championships they have if they don't think of them as real?

But this has happened before the BCS era too - Penn State fans still complain about 1994, for example.

I love me some college football, but I think I'm making a fair point. For all the complaints about the BCS, I honestly believe that they have only made the wrong selection of teams once - this year. Every other time, I have been satisfied with the choice of the BCS NCG winner as national champion. When you have a playoff too big, then you open up the chance of having a team win that everyone knows is little more than a tournament champion, rather than a true champion.

I think one thing people forget about a playoff system is that sometimes you still end up with debate about who is the best. College basketball is a great example - how many people actually believe that UConn was "the best" team in the NCAA last year?
Posted Wednesday January 18, 2012, About: Odds for 2012 Season
Fair enough. I didn't realize that Clemson was losing that many players - I did some research, but I guess I glossed over those bits. After looking at your points, you're probably right.
Posted Wednesday January 18, 2012, About: Odds for 2012 Season
I forgot that only FSU's players will improve, and that only FSU's players suffered injuries last year. How could I have overlooked such an important factor?
There is a difference between most successful and best.
Posted Tuesday January 17, 2012, About: Odds for 2012 Season
If I wanted to lay money on one of the lower teams, I'd lay out on Clemson. Reasons - weaker conference in the ACC, dominated the only other team I take seriously as an ACC title contender in VT twice last year, returning parts of a powerful offense, and an offseason and preseason to hopefully up their defensive game.
Posted Tuesday January 10, 2012, About: Hines Ward is hanging 'em up!
This is disappointing, now I'll never get a chance to see Hines Ward eat a Hines Ward cheap shot from a pissed off defender.

Oklahoma State - the REAL champions.
Posted Thursday December 08, 2011, About: ENOUGH, you lost to the IOWA STATE CYCLONES
If Alabama wins a close game (touchdown or less), and Oklahoma State blows out Stanfod, I will consider Oklahoma State champions.
Posted Friday November 25, 2011, About: CFB Game Day The 13th
Does anyone else have trouble taking Texas A&M vs. Texas seriously as a rivalry? It's hard for me to think of a series where one team has more than double the wins of the other as a rivalry series.
"What has Tyron Mathieu done LATELY?" is the question. Sure, he had some big plays earlier this season, but he hasn't really been more of a standout than RGIII or even LaMichael James in recent weeks. LSU gets it done with team defense more so than one guy being overly great.
Posted Sunday November 13, 2011, About: TCU Horn Dogs beat the Boise State potatoes!
This is back-to-back years where Boise had a serious chance to force themselves into the national title conversation and choked in its biggest game of the season. I won't say that they aren't any good, but this is back to back seasons wrecked by an allegedly "inferior" team.

Posted Saturday October 08, 2011, About: LUS Week 6.. for the Popped Kernel last week..
Talk about disappointing. I think we can stop the Braxton Miller = Terelle Pryor comparisons, because TP would have played through a light ankle injury.
Posted Sunday September 25, 2011, About: What'll ya have?
I'm glad that Wisconsin will finally be playing someone inside the top 100 of FBS this week. Hopefully those games against UNLV and South Dakota prepared them for Nebraska.
