  1. Agreed. Kevin White is/was a complete idiot.
  2. BK: "They [the staff] are certainly more interested in the title that goes with national champ than the title that goes next to their name." Yeah, I can't help but feel like he was taking a shot at Tony Alford during that whole part of the press conference.
  3. Bingo! For everyone who thought it was no big deal when we lost Eddie Vanderdoes, Tee Shephard, Ronald Darby, Alex Anzalone, etc., THIS is what happens when you lose big time recruits at the last minute year after year.
  4. This is true. My college roommate was a perfect example of that. His writing was so bad, he could barely string two coherent sentences together.
  5. Tell that to my college roommate. He graduated with a 2.6 GPA as a mechanical engineering major, and he didn't even play any sports. He still managed to get a job making 60k a year right after graduation though, so it all worked out.
  6. Not really. I'm perfectly willing to admit that I probably wouldn't have gotten into ND if my mom, grandpa, aunt, uncle, and cousin hadn't all gone there as well. A large percentage of ND students were legacy admissions like me. Even among those who don't come from a family of ND graduates, most are from wealthy families and attended Catholic high schools with a solid academic reputation. "Blue collar" students are still relatively rare, however the administration, to their credit, has made some honest efforts to change that in recent years.
  7. This. This. A thousand times this. Anybody who thinks that another big-name coach would ever touch this job is sadly delusional. Father Jenkins and the rest of the administration have effectively run the football program into the ground.
  8. Excellent post. I agree with pretty much everything you wrote. The problem with Everett Golson is entirely mental. I'm sorry, but he simply doesn't strike me as being the sharpest tool in the shed. He obviously doesn't take well to coaching, or his ball security issues would be resolved by now. He clearly formed A LOT of bad habits during his high school days, and perhaps even earlier, which he still reverts back to when the bullets start flying. The difference between EG and guys like Johnny Manziel, Russell Wilson and Drew Brees is that, unlike the other three, EG lacks the clevernes
  9. Bingo. If everybody is so concerned about the poor institutions not being able to afford it, why not let fans/boosters pay players for their autographs, memorabilia, etc. What's so morally bankrupt about that?
  10. Unfortunately, I can't see our defense stopping Winston on Saturday. The NCAA won't do anything about "Autograph-gate", neither will Florida State. At this point, he could rape Jimbo Fisher's wife and videotape it and he'd still come out unscathed. Winning is a hell of a drug, and the FSU administration and fanbase are tripping balls right now.
  11. Agreed. Mayock is a really smart guy and definitely knows his football. HOWEVER, you're absolutely right about his utter inability to admit that he was wrong. He simply refuses to believe that he could actually be wrong about anything. It's really irritating.
  12. I thought it was pretty interesting. From the article: Hahaha.........hilarious, and probably true.
  13. Yes. I would still watch. Even if college football became essentially a fully professional minor league for the NFL I would still watch, as long as the teams were still affiliated with a college or university. I would be perfectly okay with that.
  14. ......Which is why some people have suggested that they have the boosters raise the money and pay the players themselves, instead of the schools footing the bill. That would, in theory, allow them to circumvent Title IX. Of course, the problem would still be that a lot of boosters would pay players extra money under the table. The NCAA would have to put some sort of salary cap in place and enforce it strictly, with harsh punishments for teams that exceed the limit. But knowing the NCAA, they probably would be too incompetent to handle that kind of responsibility.
