  1. Rare team matchups

    The only difference between that Lions uniform and what they wear now is the number font... ...and the pants and helmet striping, and the logo. And you call yourself a Lions fan, pfft. To me, those aren't major changes. The Sanders-era look was the last iteration before what we have now, IMO. But that's a matter of opinion, I guess. Wait, you don't consider a logo change, a pants stripe change and a helmet stripe change major changes?
  2. New Vikings Uniforms

    Did someone say screaming manliness and testosterone? I honestly don't get the need to wear "manly" looking uniforms in football. You're playing football for crips sake, that's "manly" enough. If anything, I would love to wear really sissy looking stuff, just so it's so much more satisfying when you're opponent loses to someone wearing pink. But that's just me.
  3. Division 1 College Conference Realignment

    Thank god. Watching the Big East was like watching an old dog slowly and painfully die, until finally someone has the heart to put him out of his misery.
  4. Division 1 College Conference Realignment

    That is an insanely good conference right there. I don't think we have the same idea of what an "insanely good conference" is. I don't know about insanely good, but that would certainly be a 3-4 bid conference.
  5. Division 1 College Conference Realignment

    I'm just saying, I don't think they are going to be approached by any conference any time soon.

    Southern Miss also went 0-12 this year, so....

    I think they are getting by on two things. To make FSU feel at home in the Big12. Also, Miami still brings in ratings. Strange, I know. I can see Fox wanting them. Miami's also about to get carpet bombed by the NCAA. I'm not sure Florida State will want to bring along Miami after that. They wont get it as bad as people think. No way they get it worse than Penn St. There's no dispute about the NCAA's jurisdiction here and Miami has far fewer resources with which to build a recovery. The NCAA also just flat out said that they'll assume the testimony they got is truthful unless the former Miami players come to them to contradict it. I have a feeling Miami's self imposed bowl ban is going to save them a lot of trouble (the NCAA seems to get off on schools punishing themselves).

    I see in your future Oregon and Oregon State have no football teams.

    Here's a crazy thought I had: Vanderbilt to the ACC. First of all, Vandy is having a hard time competing in the SEC. They're getting better, but they are a long way off from seriously contending. So Vandy would be going to an easier conference, while still being in a BCS conference, and a conference that has a better academic prestige (which is what is important to Vandy). The ACC would get a team that is very competitive in most other sports (and is even starting to be competitive in football), and it would be a HUGE academic acquisition. It would also replace Maryland. Crazy, but it's something to think about.
  10. Ducks are still #2, which is good for both of us.

  11. The Pointless Realignment Outpost

    The Pac-16 and ACC got screwed.

    Virginia is a good team. Mike London is doing a great job there.

    If they can, the A-10 should try to get North Alabama, if they aren't already taken. It would give them a southern fanbase, and a relatively large one at that. You actually believe the A-10 should take an institution which just started their six year plan to become a Division 1 school when there is little indication that they can handle it financially over the course of season, less the $1.4M needed to apply to move up? Not to mention North Alabama is a football school and the damn Conference doesn't even support football. I gave bigger importance to the fact that UNA is still D-II as more important since they must add a 13th and 14th sport to attain D-I status since they currently just have 12. They are already planning on moving up http://www.usatoday....ivision-I_n.htm And you failed to look at my original reply to your North Alabama thought since it had the university's own timeline, if they can actually afford it. I saw that, but you contradicted yourself. Your last reply implied that UNA can't go D1 because they will have to add more sports, but they already have a plan to do that. Unless you think that the A-10 should be worried about whether or not they can go through with there plan. The A-10 is not going to go to 16 teams this year (at least I don't think so). If UNA proves that they can make the jump, they would be a great addition within the next few years.
