  4. 2017-18 NCAA Football Thread

    They cannot dominate as they cannot get the same out of state players they once did. Wisconsin has better access to the talent pool, as does Minnesota to a degree.
  5. We're less than 100 days away from the Week 0 games and might as well start it now with the news that Bob Stoops is retiring from Oklahoma effective immediately with OC Lincoln Riley, age 33, taking over. http://m.newsok.com/source-ou-coach-bob-stoops-retiring/article/5551964?rotator=true
  6. 2017-18 NCAA Football Thread

    For some perspective... When Nebraska won their split national title in 1997, there were just 112 FBS teams, now there are 130. Five of those new schools are located where Nebraska got a lot of their skill players: Florida (FIU, FAU, South Florida) and Texas (Texas State and UTSA). Then there was that whole issue of the entire state running the flexbone during the Devaley/Osbourne/Solich era which has now only has Paul Johnson and his coaching tree actively running. Plus, during the 80's-90's, controversial strength coach Boyd Epley was out there giving players steroids like Bubble Yum.

    Unsurprising as a HS player died due to subdural hematoma and it was revealed they had CTE as early as 17.

    They are. They are just on UniMas now as MLS went away from airing the UniMas/Univision Desportes games on Friday night as they did the previous two seasons. UniMas offers English broadcasters by using the SAP button on your set.

  23. North American Pro Soccer 2017

    Attendance "records" don't mean $hit. Win a championship. Oh wait, Atlanta historically has issues with that.
