    In the long run it want matter. The kid is going to implode and when he does watch the Manziel zealots bail like they were on the titanic. Smoke equals fire.

    the NCAA is currently in litigation with some former players like Ed O'Bannon (UCLA BB POY) in regard to them profiting on using the likenesses of NCAA student/athletes...the very last thing the NCAA wants is to have Congress revoke their Trust exempt status and have their books opened up...Manziel went all in and the NCAA folded their hand, but JF/TAMU used up a lifeline , they are now on their schiat list

Most likely not though, good luck with Tennessee, they suck ass and will still beat the Ducks.
    I read today that Alabama has the the 40th toughest schedule this year. And they claim their number one. Give me a break.

    As much as it pains me to say it, They are number one until somebody beats them. IF they loose this year it will come from the SEC West. The Ducks still wont get past Stanford.

    Strength of schedule will fluctuate weekly, in an ideal situation you want the team that you beat to continue to rack up the wins, so in many ways SOS only matters the last week of the year when people want to get into a whizzing match over who belongs where in the polls and in what bowl ...SOS before the season is solely based on last year's record so its all relative

    IMO they need to go back to using the point differential aka "style points", beating a Top ranked team on the road is a whole lot more impressive that beating little sisters of the poor by 50 at home

    bon,
    Coach Bryant used to point out in his gruff Arkansas drawl that, and i paraphrase, "If you don't think these "little" games against unranked opponents are important......just go out and lose one!" if you go to the central part of a neighboring state of ours and see any pre '80 pickup truck on the court house square, 9 times out of ten there will be a faded bumper sticker that says, "I was there when we beat The Bear!" and that is a conference team. when you are ohio state, michigan, texas, alabama, oklahoma, nebraska, etc. you are playing against the hopes, dreams and opportunity of a lifetime of all these "little sisters" every time out. you gotta be prepared!

    wayne,

    Sam Jankovich parlayed an undefeated HS team in Butte, MT to an assistants job at WSU under Sweeney to the AD's job at Miami (before they were a national power). Miami never played 2 good teams in a row during the Jankovich years, in fact, they tried to sandwich 2 average teams between each big game. Look at Miami's rise to fame during the Jankovich years to see how that works out. They were able to put healthy teams on the field, tough games beat up your players. Healthy players give you a better chance in the win column.

    A little symmetry in that, Marvin. Jank's predecessor as the U's AD was Bear Bryant's PR man, and TV show second-banana, Charley Thornton, who himself had replaced as Miami's athletic director, one Lou Saban (no kin to "Saint" Nick). This Saban, a football lifer until he went to work for George Steinbrenner late in the game, was off to West Point as head coach. Jank then hired Jimmy Johnson and later Denis Erickson, an old WSU buddy, both of whom dictated the scheduling during Miami's run in the 80s and 90s. Jank later moved on to the Patriots as CEO - and to at least as much infamy (Victor Kiam ring a bell?) as fame in the pro game.

    What Johnny Football did or didn't do leaves a bad taste in my mouth like everyone else. I'm an Aggie, so of course I'm a fan. But bringing race and class into the equation is below the belt in my opinion. No one knows "why" Johnny got away with what he got away with (and I do think he got away with "something"), however, I'm not gonna sit here and say it's because he's rich, or white. No, if there's any reason whatsoever, it's because he's quasy famous. He's a Heisman Trophy winner. He's Mr. Football. Reggie Bush, Cam Newton, and even other players, same results.....so making it about "race" and "class" is stupid IMO.
