2010 NCAA Football Thread

Recommended Posts

I love the Georgia fanbase, the alumni part, anyway. They come down here and spend money. Always fun hanging out with them for the weekend. It is hard not to pull for Georgia when they play because of them. I hope Jacksonville hosts this game for years to come. If you are a Georgia fan and never been to a Florida/Georgia game, you need to go. You will have a blast.

Don't they keep the game through 2016? In NCAA football, that is long term.

The city pays to fly Georgia in on three jets.

EDIT: Sparty, wtf? I just tuned in. Mizzou just called and thanks you for the time being.

Wow Notre Dame is a mess I see them losing this game., and I think the death of that student is going to explode into a big mess with lawsuits gallore maybe even negliganc charges. Nobody is talking now but when the mourning is over the finger ponting will begin. )lus now Crist is hurt.

So, I tune in to ESPN to watch the Gophers/Buckeyes game at 11AM central time. I don't find it there, so I switch to ESPN2. Not there. Change to Big Ten Network - not on that one either. So I look online, and see that they are playing at 7PM!!! I mean, I know it's Ohio State, but why would they put the Gophers in prime time on ABC? Not even Minnesotans will tune in, because the Wolves AND Wild are also playing. That's at least half of Minnesota watching the Wild and 3 or 4 more people watching the Wolves. Plus, there is a lot of high school playoff football tonight, which occupies the remainder of the MN population. Not one single person from Minnesota will watch this game tonight.

In addition, this interferes with my high school football team's playoff game tonight at 7. :mad:

Maybe the portion of the state's population that don't like the T-Wolves or Wild or aren't involved in High School Playoff action will watch because, let's face it, they must like torturing themselves (BTW, Minnesota ought to try what Iowa does for High School Football Playoffs: Schedule it all on a Monday).

Under those circumstances, I really do not think they wanted to play this game today.

As for the student-worker death, I am surprised that it was not really talked about on this board earlier. His tweets were foreshadowing and very scary. It was an accident and workers comp will give the family some money. WC is a no-fault system and ND's WC insurer will pay benefits because the guy was working within the course and scope of his employment.

The school may still try try to settle out of court since the words from the AD during their press conference are now very damaging.

In reality, the HC (Kelly) is the one who decides if they practice outside or inside. Since they want total control, then he was the guy who made the decision. Jason Whitlock is right to say that Kelly should be dismissed.

Regardless, using lifts for a practice they are not designed for will now be of emphasis for all teams. Policies for these lifts are being written this weekend by the athletic departments, hopefully it is is conjunction with the the Risk Management Department

Michigan State may as well say UNCLE! Wow what a beating.

These are the kind of beatings that are normal in a second-tier conference like the Big Ten, where there might be only a couple good teams. The Big Ten begins and ends with Ohio State - nobody else in the conference is even relevant on a national basis.

The only acceptable and reasonable punishment is the immediate and permanent disbanding of the Notre Dame football team. You do not put your players/staff in a position where they can be injured or killed.

I won't be shocked if ND does not win another game this year. I read that Whitlock article too, and he made some great points about Kelly being fired. If he knew it was going to be risky and that kid did not want to go up there, he may get canned. Some heads will roll over this, I don't think it will be Kelly but if ND fires another coach after just one season; the Notre Dame Football program will never recover. Too much instability already changing coaches again would be disastrous.

A head coach knows about all doings. Tressel talked about the issue of wind and practice a day BEFORE the accident..

Swarbrick is an attorney by trade and he really :censored:ed up. His statements from Wednesday.
