2010 NCAA College Football Season - Page 8

post #351 of 572
New drinking game. Every time FSU gives up a first down on third and long take a shot. You'll be dead by the frist half of a game.

Oh well, that was bonus time anyway. No one expected the Noles to make that game anyway. At least I get to see them live in the Chic-Fil-A Bowl, ha.

You going to the bowl game? I'm taking my parents and my son.

God damn I really hate Auburn for some reason. It's not just the Cam Newton thing. Is it too much to ask that the Ducks crush their spirit? Most likely.
It's because Chizik is a very average coach who, without Malzahn or Newton, would be sitting at .500. It's made worse by the cow college having some of the worst fans in college football.
post #354 of 572
I'm not a huge fan of Malzahn either. Granted, Houston Nutt was faaaar from perfect, and I'm not sorry he is gone, but that whole thing with Malzahn coming part and parcel with Mustain, Williams and co. out of Springdale, and the ensuing drama that followed, sorta made me root against all of those guys.

Around the time the bowls gave up on being coy about the corporate sponsorships and just named themselves after the companies. Sanctity of the bowls my ass.

I don't mind the sponsorship but removing 40+year old names from these things? That blows goats.

Auburn moves up to #1, Oregon down to #2 in the AP poll.

Working on it, but not sure yet. I'll ping ya if its definite. Spoke with some fellow Booster friends this morning about trying to get some tix when the school puts them out for sale. The school seats will probably suck but I don't feel like paying big money for this one. But with the game being local I'll go no matter ticket prices, as long as I can get someone to watch the kids on New Years.

Tzu, agreed on the crappy name change. I tried to call it the Peach Bowl even post Chik-Fil-A but around these parts Chik-Fil-A is like Coke and has become so all-encompassing everyone seems to have adopted the new name.

I love it--Sun Bowl matchup is Miami vs. Notre Dame.

Gator Bowl is reported to be bringing Michigan and Mississippi State in. Meh.

Florida heading to the Steakback Outhouse bowl to possibly play Penn State. Double meh.

What shitty bowl match up will Boise State get now that all the Bowls have contracts with the BCS schools?
post #364 of 572
CBS has Boise St. projected for the Maaco Bowl in Las Vegas on Dec. 22.
post #365 of 572
I wonder how much I could flip some tickets to the Chik-Fil-A for....

The fact that Michigan is going to a bowl and that it is a better bowl than Boise State is a travesty.
post #367 of 572
Yeah, 11-1 Boise State plays on Dec. 22, while seven teams with 7-5 records and two teams with 6-6 records are playing on New Year's Day or later.

Again, sanctity of the bowls my ass. Sanctity of your payouts, more like it.

Agreed on both points. Rich Rod is history after the game, and now Boise State has a chance to win to perpetuate their supposed superiority. I so wanted to Boise State to be trounced by a team to put the kibosh on their claims for the championship.

But the Buckeyes get the Sugar Bowl, which is fine with me. It's been a relatively lackluster year for OSU, but we're still in the mix.

To be fair, most everyone down here still calls it the Peach Bowl.
post #370 of 572
ESPN Bowl Selection show said if Mississippi State had Cam Newton they could be playing for a national championship. For some reason that depresses me.

Jacksonville is going to be Maroon and the sound of cowbells will be ringing loud there. Already a decent size Mississippi State Alumni base there.

Understandable, but how would you feel when you'd have to vacate the title and give back the Heisman in a few years?

Yeah, complete BS for sure. They should be playing on/after New Years Day. One really tough close loss does not (or should not) throw a team like that into the Obscurity Bowl. lol
post #375 of 572
I'm just sick of bowl games after Jan. 1. The only game that should happen after New Year's Day is the championship game. I mean, what's so special about the Kraft Fight Hunger bowl that it has to take place in prime time on a Sunday night?

I just miss the old New Year's Days when you'd have all these meaningful games going on, and a night game that looked meaningless at noon could suddenly become important with an upset in the afternoon games. It didn't have the #1 vs. #2 certainty of the current system, but it didn't turn all the New Year's games into afterthoughts either.

On the lower side of shittiness, Temple (8-4) who beat UConn, got completely shutout of the bowl season.
post #377 of 572
Thread Starter 
Maryland at 8-4 goes to the Military Bowl (WTF?), which is essentially last on the ACC selection board, while Ga Tech and Clemson (both 6-6) are chosen to bowls before them. Whatever.

Also loved this Twitter quote from a another Mid-American Conference coach: "Temple finishes season 8-4, just like UConn, and beat UConn 30-16 this season. UConn is going to a BCS bowl. Temple is going nowhere."

EDIT: Or, what JCassady said.

It's long been more about what teams bring fans and ratings than about what teams deserve to go. But a playoff SIMPLY won't work...

The 'stache is out at Pitt. Apparently UM offered him a 10-year contract back when he was HC for the Dolphins, and he said "no". Don't know if he or they would reconsider now.

There are multiple reports swirling around that Urban Meyer is stepping down at Florida. Again. For real this time.

I'll believe it when I don't see him on the sidelines in 2011. Also, if he pulls again what he pulled last year, I don't think the UF fans will stand for it. I wouldn't.
post #383 of 572
I wonder if there's some Cam Newton fallout hitting Florida and Meyer's getting out now before it blows up.
post #384 of 572
I think he just figures it'll take too much to fix what's broken down there.

See my avatar for the next UF coach.
post #385 of 572
Damned if I can make that out, who is it?
post #386 of 572
Current smaller college head coach, with an offense that leads the nation, who played quarterback for the Florida Gators...

Kerwin Bell
post #387 of 572
Heh, I thought him and thought, "Oh, no way."

Do you think they can afford to make a non-splash hire?
post #388 of 572
State fans are all upset, because of course Mullen's name is coming up already to take over the Florida job. Mullen is loved in Starkville and by the Mississippi State Fans.
post #389 of 572
Mullen was coming up for the UM job too.
post #390 of 572

The problem with UM is, they can't afford any big-name coaches. This couldn't have been timed any better for FSU, with all of their coaches out this week on the recruiting trail. And speaking of recruiting, UM's 2011 class can now be counted on one hand. Yikes. Already lots of posts from some angry UF recruits, and some saying they'll wait and see who the new HC is. Also scuttlebutt suggesting that any recruits from the last class should be given the option to transfer if they like, since Meyer said he wasn't coming back for just 1 more year.
post #391 of 572
It's funny that after a short break, FSU once again has the longest tenured coach out of the Big 3 Florida schools.
post #392 of 572
Bell's not a splashy hire, sure. I fully expect the usual suspects to come up - Mullen, Strong, Shanahan, Stoops - but Meyer created a disconnect among the UF boosters and those who remember the good old days and how good it felt when Spurrier turned an also-ran program into one of the nation's elite, because he -was- a Gator. Meyer was, and always will be, considered an outsider.

For the record, this was done by an LSU fan, not an FSU fan.

The sentiment around the state is that he really wanted to walk away last year and got talked out of it by Jeremy Foley, and that his wanting to spend time with his family is genuine. Not that he'll never get back into coaching, but probably not at least until his kids are all graduated.
post #396 of 572
I heard Meyer was leaving to be Bale's stunt double in the new Batman film.
post #397 of 572
One rumor I heard was that in two years, Meyer will be asst. head coach for Belichick in New England and the "successor in waiting" for the Pats.
post #398 of 572
FSU has the most tenured coach in the state and whipped both rivals. Word on the street is that FSU will have a top #5 recruiting class while UF and UM will bleed recruits for at least a year, maybe more.

All is right with the world.
post #399 of 572
I think Petrino is a strong possibility for UF.
post #400 of 572
Will Muschamp to Florida

I don't know how to react.

Although, I do know this. Announcing it the same evening Cam Newton gets the Heisman was not an accident.
