Reading rumors that Florida State (big time talk going on there), Virginia Tech, West Virginia, and South Florida.

I don't know how I feel about the situation. I have never disliked Texas A&M, and I like the whole "12th man" tradition...fits in line with our other strong SEC traditions I suppose.

Having a Texas school in the SEC is going to shake up recruiting for sure. No longer can we lure players out of Texas with the "you can play in the SEC" speech. I think Texas A&M can be competitive as well and are at least striking in while their own iron is pretty hot...but they will certainly have to earn it.

Ummm....outside of LSU and Arkansas, that argument wasn't doing SEC teams a lot of good on the recruiting trail. If anything, the conventional wisdom is that this would open Texas up to widespread SEC recruitment.

It seems to have been increasing over the past couple of seasons as the dominance has really set in. While we personally haven't signed many out of Texas, we certainly got a lot more attention from them over the past few seasons- and I know if we have, others probably as well. Texas is simply hard to recruit from outside. Fortunately, Florida exists.

Well that was a stupid thing to say.

Spleen said that Oregon was doing well recruiting in Texas, to which I responded "You're not allowed to say that when your school is under NCAA investigation for serious recruiting violations."

I saw that. But what did it have to do with my post and the portion he bolded?

The thing about it being a stupid thing to say wasn't what he originally said. He originally said "Tell that to Oregon" in response to you saying Texas was hard to recruit from the outside, and when I called him out on the Oregon thing he edited it out.

Well, another year dawns on the 116 teams in FBS conferences. Two of them will meet for a national title, but which two?

I'm predicting nobody in an FBS conference goes unbeaten and we get a title game between 12-1 Stanford and 12-1 Michigan. Oh, what a game that would be!

Meanwhile, the NCAA has implemented a potentially-perceived-as-racist policy that says that schhols that can't graduate 50% of their athletes will get postseason bans.

I thought there were 120 teams?

How the heck is a graduation rate rule racist? I havnt seen that argument. Wouldn't believing the rule is racist suggest that you're of the mindset that not all races are equally intelligent, and that's where the racism enters?

I've heard arguments that because it affects most of the schools in the MEAC and SWAC that it's racist. Oh, and no, there are only 116 teams in FBS conferences. There are four independent teams that are FBS, but let's face it, none of them are relevant on the national stage. So we can safely discount them from the national title race. Besides, the BCS anymore only invites conference champions to their title game.

I'm sure if Notre Dame went undefeated they'd be getting very serious attention for a national title bid...

Not with that weak schedule. I'm sorry, only one ranked team? Why not go to Alabama or to LSU or to Florida State? Oh, that's right, because they'd rather host South Florida or play neutral to Army.

Tell me, would you rather have a 12-1 and Big Ten champ Michigan or a 12-0 not champ of anything Notre Dame?

Ummm... yeah. Good luck with that.

If I had to pick what I think will happen, Oregon vs Texas A&M.

So what, Arizona vs Alabama, with Arizona winning 117-0?

It's never preseason 1 vs 2. Oklahoma is going to screw up somewhere. Alabama is a young team, and I think they lose to South Carolina. They, along with Wisconsin, could also go the the "natty" however.
