College Football 2018-19: Santa Clara is that a way.

Might actually be the first time I can remember that Notre Dame plays at home in primetime and it'll actually be the biggest game going on. Feels like most weeks when NBC puts ND into the 7:30 time slot, it's overshadowed by the ABC and/or FOX games, when playing at the traditional 3:30 kickoff would've made it the clear biggest game.

 

Related: Can't wait to see how ESPN justifies taking GameDay to the parking lot at one of the neutral site games over going to South Bend. :rolleyes:

 

I see them going to Alabama for some dumb reason. Instead of going back to the rivalry of Michigan v Norte Dame!

Louisville/Alabama is in Orlando and it's the primetime game. Monday night, which Herbstreit will also call is VT@Florida State.

 

Being in Atlanta would be for Washington/Auburn, which is the best matchup of the day.

 

Week 2 is either Clemson@Texas A&M or Penn State@Pitt.

 

Week 3 will likely be in Fort Worth (TCU campus or Sundance Square) as TCU/Ohio State is at AT&T Stadium.

Quote

The Big Ten has asked the NCAA to consider developing a national college football injury reporting system in reaction to the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision that allows states to legalize sports gambling.

 

The conference's athletic directors proposed to the NCAA Football Oversight Committee in June what would be a first-ever weekly national injury reporting mandate. The ADs claim an injury report is necessary to protect the integrity of the sport.

 

Such a move would alter one of the most ingrained and long-standing traditions in college football -- coaches concealing injuries. From the earliest days of the sport, the decision to release such information has typically been made by the coaches themselves, sometimes flying in the face of fair play and transparency.

 

The main issue is how to get around student privacy laws -- most notably the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Essentially, athletes would have to consent to have their injury information released publicly.

With pro sports leagues required to release player injuries it should be interesting to see how this goes. The argument could be made that they aren't discussing unknown occurrences of injury, especially if a player's injury is seen on national TV. However, for Division II, III and some FCS schools they don't have that occurring unless it's in the playoffs. I'm guessing FBS would be the only ones required to do this.

Oho State fires WR coach Zach Smith after a May arrest for Criminal Trespass involving his ex-wife comes to light.  

 

Urban Meyer addressed the media on Tuesday and says it was a "very tough call" to fire Smith, who has been with Meyer while at Florida as well told the media that he and his wife, Shelly, "got involved" in a 2009 incident with Smith and his wife by talking to police after their investigation of Smith for domestic assault.  Those 2009 charges were later dropped.  

 

Not a good look Urban.

Something for 2021, the B1G will NOT play in the proposed bowl at Wrigley Field, because the members prefer to play in warmer climates, while the Cubs, foolishly, wanted a high-level pick.

Actually, Chicago and Myrtle Beach were awarded bowl games for December 2020. A third city was given a game too. The NCAA did approve three "new bowl games", rather "three bowl games", and according to Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby the number of games isn't likely to increase.

With Chicago bailing out, this basically means that one of the current 39 bowl games, think the Bahamas Bowl or Camelia Bowl, is going to survive the next six year run of games and not move.

Since the Bahamas Bowl is on a cricket soccer/athletics pitch I can see it getting axed, even if the fans that go to the game love it.

Heck, if it gets eyes on the conference I'll take The American in Chicago....anything to play a P5 conference in a bowl.

McMurphy doubles down on Urban Meyer's knowledge of domestic violence from his assistants. Urban's wife, Shelley, who is also an employee of Ohio State, was in text messages with the abused and failed to report it, per university policy.

He's gonna be freakin' gone from Ohio State... and will likely never come back at a major Power 5 program... leaving only Saban, Swinney and Jimbo Fisher as active coaches with national championships. Smallest number I can ever remember (3), and I've been tracking that for years.

 

Sheesh....  as if Saban didn't already overwhelmingly dominate college head football coaching.  The guy's gonna go down as the G.O.A.T. before it's all said and done.

If it's true he had knowledge of the incident and kept him on the staff, he needs to be fired.

Remember when everyone was mad at Baylor, now Urban Meyer does the same thing. Use common sense, respect for your program is more important than winning.

I'm betting it's true. Meyer has a reputation for looking the other way (Aaron Hernandez, for example) when a high quality player has "character issues." He also has a reputation for having bit of a "God complex" as in he thinks he can fix anyone. In any case, if this is true - and I think it is - he needs to be fired. I hate seeing this sort of thing. It's just wrong. Standing idly by with full knowledge that the wife of one of your coaches is being abused is simply unacceptable. Period.

Urban Meyer and attorney release a statement late Friday afternoon in a news dump, indicating he followed all procedures...

Meanwhile, fired coach Zach Smith goes on Columbus radio claiming that he never abused his ex-wife.

Later, Brett McMurphy comes back with "receipts" and post an alledged text exchange between the Smith and his ex-wife.
