bomani was great on this yesterday:

"McMillen’s group, an association of college athletic directors looking to quash proposals that would allow scholarship athletes to be paid, booked the chandelier-adorned Presidential Ballroom in Trump’s D.C. hotel for a 600- to 700-person gala in September of this year."

 

 

link for his podacast, I think it was hour 2:

^ I thought him saying dumbo being paid by graduate level courses for free was hilarious. It was also sad when I realized how ridiculous the other half it it is mean.gif

Every year, I try to cut down on my college football consumption... but it just doesn't work out.

So far there's no reason to think Wyatt is decomitting

"With the timing of the news last night, a lot of OSU people woke up surprised this morning with Tyjon's decommitment.

I am told he was not forced out and that OSU is still trying to fully get to the bottom of what the cause is here. Obviously calling Tyjon at 6 AM local time isn't an option that I'm going to pursue so I'm still trying to get his side of this.

I was told to expect this to NOT be over yet. OSU is going to try and bring him back in the fold.

Lindsey did not use his official visit during the fall, that ended up being an unofficial visit, so that is still on the table moving forward. Meyer still has his in-home as well and Zach Smith may visit once per week once we get out of the Dead Period tonight.

Nebraska is one to watch here. I tend to think USC tries to get involved as well with Bubba Bolden being committed there again"

The worst thing about Clemson winning is now Dumbo will be even bolder with expressing his idiotic views about real issues. I can't wait to hear his views about climate change and how it isn't a big deal if the polar ice caps melt because we still have winters and his team plays with GUTS.

"Can you imagine if Robert Falcon Scott were alive today to see the ice in antarctica melting at such a massive rate these days? He could only dream that it would be much easier to reach the south pole on foot, with much less risk of death."

#AFCA proposes a new eligibility model, still 5 years to play 4, but if athlete plays less than 4 games in a season can be redshirted.

 

Good rule

 

Quote:
 

A group of organizers with deep NFL ties plans to launch a new professional football league, with the ambition of giving promising young players an alternative to college football that offers a salary and instruction they feel is lacking in the college game.

Pacific Pro Football aims to begin play in 2018 with four teams based in Southern California. Unlike many other start-up leagues, its talent pool will be limited to athletes who are less than four years removed from high school graduation. The goal is to give young prospects a professional outlet to prepare for the NFL, said Don Yee, the league’s CEO.

The league launches in the midst of a growing debate about amateurism and a college model that rewards student-athletes with scholarships but not salaries. Labor lawyers have challenged the NCAA, and the battle is being waged in several court rooms across the country. Yee has been an outspoken critic of the college model and says his league will treat young athletes as employees, like any other pro sports outfit.

Quote:
 

Along with Yee, the league is co-founded by Ed McCaffrey, a former NFL wide receiver, and Jeff Husvar, a former Fox Sports executive. Its advisory board includes former NFL coach Mike Shanahan; Mike Pereira, the league’s former officiating czar; ESPN reporter Adam Schefter; Jim Steeg, a longtime NFL executive; and veteran political strategist Steve Schmidt.

Organizers hope to eventually expand beyond California. All teams will be owned by the league, and the average player salary will be $50,000, Yee said. The league initially will play a six- to eight-game season that runs through July and August, concluding just before the NFL and college seasons begin.

While NFL officials have expressed an interest in forming a developmental league of their own, Pacific Pro Football has no relationship with the NFL. But the upstart league will be focused on preparing them for the NFL, focusing on technique and systems required at the next level.

“I think this is a unique experience for these young men,” Shanahan said. “Maybe we’re talking about a guy who for some reason didn’t make grades or maybe he was at a position with competition and rather than transfer to another school and sit out a year, he now has this option. Or maybe a guy just wants to spend more time with football than he’s currently allowed.”

 Cal: Sources tell FootballScoop Navy head coach Ken Niumatalolo has been contacted by Cal and is considered a strong candidate for the position. Several other programs have reached out to Niumatalolo over the past few seasons, including within the past month. None, so far, have been able to entice Niumatalolo to leave. Perhaps this will be the one… Will update as more is clear.

 

Vic and Demetris Robertson in that O :hat

 

 

Would be a great hire for them

"Tate is very upset with Tyjon. The two are practically brothers. Tyjon moved in with Tate and his family (Martell's have $$$$$$), when he started at BG, Tyjon went back him to Cali, then came back and moved BACK in with Tate. The plan was for them to go to college together. I think something happened between them and that may be what this is about."

"Not sure what happened. But Tate has told people he's very hurt by this but will still be in Columbus Thursday for class. Tyjon is throwing shots at "family" and fake people on twitter"

Interesting stuff, who the hell knows what happened. Oh well let the kid move on to where he wants to go

Hopefully it ain't over a damn braud :lol :{ 

 

 

I'd like to see the staff make a run at him now that he's beefing with Tate.  I'd hate to see that kids talent wasted at somewhere like Nebraska.

Well, here’s something you don’t see often in college football. On Tuesday morning, it was reported by Sports Illustrated that Mississippi State is expected to hire Louisville’s Todd Grantham, who has been with Bobby Petrino for the last three seasons. Included in the report was that MSU defensive coordinator Peter Sirmon “will not return” to Starkville for next season.

But, where this story gets even whackier is that shortly after the reports of Grantham heading to Starkville came out, it was then reported that Sirmon was going to replace Grantham at Louisville. That’s right — Louisville and Mississippi State essentially ended up trading defensive coordinators. FootballScoop reports that the Sirmon deal was being worked at “for some time.”

The arrangement has been in the works for some time, sources told FootballScoop, but Louisville wanted to wait until current defensive coordinator Todd Grantham found new employment.

 

 

:lol

 

 

Looks like L's from the curse of 9-3 followed Dawg Grantham all the way to Louisville.

Is Sirmon any good?  MSST wasn't anything special on D this season. 

 

Bobby could have done better.

You shouldn't be bitter over a kid who didn't do much.

Everyone seemed to think he's an up and coming DC, but Mississippi State was below average on defense this year. I watched a few of their games and I actually thought, besides bs. A&M they looked very bad. Whether that's his fault or personnel, I don't know.

 

Joel "The Yips" Stave threw for 217 yards against him in the Holiday Bowl last year, but at least his defense looked hungry and aggressive? He's a great recruiter and a position coach at best, if you ask me.

Stanford’s vanishing quarterback depth: Keller Chryst out at least six months, Ryan Burns to transfer

Stanford quarterback Keller Chryst will have knee surgery and miss at least six months as the result of an injury suffered in the Sun Bowl, according to multiple sources.

Chryst has severe ligament damage; the specifics of the injury, however, have not been disclosed by the school.

The recovery timeline means Chryst, in a best-case scenario, could be on the field in a limited capacity when the Cardinal starts training camp in late July or early August.

His absence takes on greater significance because of another development: Senior Ryan Burns, who replaced Chryst in the Sun Bowl (and started the first seven games of the season) is expected to leave Stanford under the NCAA’s graduate transfer policy.

With Burns gone and Chryst recovering, the Cardinal has one scholarship quarterback for offseason workouts and spring practice: freshman K.J. Costello.
