UofL/UK game probably kept alot from making the trip. Both fanbases might trash the field before this games over.

I've gotten my 2 TO's. Thank you very much!!!

Frank Drebin 12-29-2017 08:02 PM

This is the point where NU could just salt the game away with a couple of first downs. Whenever they're in this position, its always a 3 and out.

Frank Drebin 12-29-2017 08:24 PM

Wow. Thank god.

Frank Drebin 12-29-2017 08:26 PM

Maybe the worst officiated half of football I've ever seen leading to a crappy 2nd. I wanted an NU win, but more than anything, I wanted it to be over.

Frank Drebin 12-30-2017 05:00 PM

Go big ten and all that but while the announcers are saying "PENN STATE IZ BAK!!" I would just like to point out that the entire administration and community looked the other way while a coach molested children for a generation and still to this day think they did nothing wrong and stoke conspiracy theory fires all in the name of how much Football means to them and as a means of fending of the shame of doing what they did. To this day they continue to act as if nothing bad happened even though they've paid over $93 million in restitution to victims at last count.

The fact that something as unconscionable as that can happen and the punishment is a couple of years of postseason bans and a few scholarships lost is unreal. What would have to happen at a football powerhouse for them to have to shut down the program?

Frank Drebin 12-30-2017 11:27 PM

5 bucks says Michigan blows a cake game against a very "meh" South Carolina team to cost the Big Ten a perfect Bowl record.

I know they've got lots of injuries, but they're still better than that team.

Frank, do you post on the rivals forums?

Frank Drebin 01-05-2018 11:13 PM

Naw. This is the only place I post. Why? Someone post like me there?

rez 01-05-2018 11:16 PM

pretty sure someone does with your Letterman avatar.

think they even said go BIG conf.

which, I'd agree with.

rez 01-05-2018 11:16 PM

this one time..screw the SEC.

Boiler Up! ;)

Seph 01-06-2018 12:14 AM

Spoiler Alert: SEC wins the national title.

Frank Drebin 01-06-2018 08:48 PM

Central Florida already won it. Ask them.

Seph 01-06-2018 09:38 PM

Central Florida has been known to lie.

They did prove they had every right to be in the title picture though. They were shafted by the committee.

Get tattoos in exchange for autographs.

No seriously; remember when like 5 players did that at Ohio State and you had people screaming for the SMU "Death Penalty"? They wanted the Buckeyes burned at the stake to "send a message". Coach Tressel had to resign (to which he sat in the replay booth upstairs for the Colts for a couple of seasons before returning home to YSU to become the college president), a whole string of vacated wins, and Terelle Pryor had to slide to the NFL sooner than he should have 'lest his stock drop into the toilet. That was a "lack of institutional control", but a grown man playing grabass with kids for a couple decades has people scratching their heads and playing with kid gloves on the matter.

And to top it off, a couple of years later, Manziel was down in Texas blatantly doing exactly what the Ohio State players were "caught" doing, and suddenly it became an issue of "Well, why shouldn't players be able to reap benefits from their fame and/or get paid?"

Sorry, Seph.

#BrotherVito DELETED 01-09-2018 12:58 PM

Alabama weren't even able to qualify for their conference title game, they got an extra week to rest their players and took no additional risk while the teams that were in their conference title games all ran the risk of not even making the playoff if they lost.

Straight up bullshit. The committee went out of their way to coddle Alabama.

#BrotherVito DELETED 01-09-2018 01:05 PM

And yes, I realize that there is a difference between best teams vs. winners of the big conferences. But it just feels flawed.

If the NFL was like this we would've seen Brady vs. Manning in the Super Bowl every year because the committee would've decided the NFC shouldn't get a Super Bowl team.

Pretty sure it'll eventually expand to 8 teams though with the Power 5 conference winners and 3 Wild Cards.

NCAA is a fucking joke.

Shisen Kopf 01-13-2018 10:53 AM

UCF should have been in the playoffs. NCAA is full of bastards and some are even rat bastards. Fuck the NCAA. They should drink bleach or ammonia or something. Amirite owenbrown?

Simple Fan 01-13-2018 01:20 PM

I agree with both NCAA being a joke and UCF being in the playoff but the NCAA had nothing to with UCF. CFP selection committee is full of a bunch of AD's and former coaches with only 1 former NCAA employee on it. Pretty much told every Group of 5 school they have no shot at ever competing for a national championship.

Seph 01-15-2018 01:56 AM

UCF should have gotten Alabamas spot in the final 4 tbh.

Seph 01-15-2018 01:57 AM

I feel like UCF vs Clemson in the quarters would have been a high scoring shoot out of epic proportions.

I don't see that as I feel Alabama deserved to be in and proved so by winning it all. I think UCF should have gotten Oklahoma's spot though.

Frank Drebin 01-15-2018 09:19 PM

Northwestern should have been in the playoffs.

Seph 01-15-2018 09:37 PM

Alabama was the outlier when they picked playoff teams. Didn't even make the conference championship game. No way in hell UCF gets Oklahomas spot.

Now I'm going to be a cry baby and point out that the only reason Alabama won it all was because the refs gave them the second half. Called UGA offsides on a blocked punt when they weren't offsides. Didn't call a blatant face mask penalty on Alabama on Nick Chubb. The game tying touchdown play had an Alabama guy false start and was easily 5 feet offside when the ball was snapped and was literally standing RIGHT IN FRONT of the official who was supposed to be watching him. It was bullshit.

Seph 01-15-2018 09:40 PM

Officiating is so bad at all levels of football that it is ridiculous. And I should know; I officiate football. We intentionally ignore calls on nearly every play. Unless you make it outrageous, holding is basically allowed at this point. We're basically encouraged to do it this way to keep the game moving. But when you're playing for all the marbles it shouldn't be like that.

Officials are corrupt in many sports.

Some of the teams that could be i n trouble from the investigation.


Quote:

There’s potential impermissible benefits and preferential treatment for players and families of players at Duke, North Carolina, Texas, Kentucky, Michigan State, USC, Alabama and a host of other schools. The documents link some of the sport’s biggest current stars – Michigan State’s Miles Bridges, Alabama’s Collin Sexton and Duke’s Wendell Carter – to specific potential extra benefits for either the athletes or their family members. The amounts tied to players in the case range from basic meals to tens of thousands of dollars.
Quote:

Dennis Smith, who would go on to play at North Carolina State in 2016-17, received $43,500 according to the documents. Another document headed “Pina,” for ASM agent Stephen Pina, says Smith received a total of $73,500 in loans, and includes notes about “options to recoup the money” when Smith did not sign with ASM.

Isaiah Whitehead, at the time a freshman at Seton Hall, received $26,136 according to the documents. The “Pina” document says Whitehead received $37,657 and was “setting up payment plan.” Whitehead signed with ASM but later left the agency for Roc Nation.

Tim Quarterman, at the time a junior at LSU, received at least $16,000 according to the balance sheet.

Diamond Stone, at the time a freshman at Maryland, received $14,303 according to the documents.

A listing that refers to “BAM” for $12,000 is later identified in the documents as Edrice “Bam” Adebayo, who would go on to play at Kentucky in 2016-17. He did not sign with ASM. There’s a later reference to Adebayo that says he received $36,500. “Bad loan,” reads the document.

Markelle Fultz, who would go on to play at Washington and become the No. 1 pick in the 2017 draft, received $10,000 according to the documents. He did not sign with ASM.
Quote:

Current USC player Bennie Boatwright and/or his father, Bennie Sr. (According to documents, they received at least $2,000.)

Current USC player Chimezie Metu and/or adviser, Johnnie Parker. (According to documents, they received $2,000.)

Current Texas player Eric Davis. (According to documents, he received $1,500.)

Current South Carolina player Brian Bowen, who was ensnared in the initial federal investigation and started his career at Louisville last fall until the school withheld him from competition. His father, Brian Sr., also received money, according to the documents. (Dawkins’ expense reports also list more than $1,500 in plane tickets for Bowen, his father and his mother. He and his family received at least $7,000 in benefits, according to the documents.)

Former Utah star Kyle Kuzma received at least $9,500 while in school, according to the documents.

Former South Carolina player P.J. Dozier received at least $6,115 while in school, according to the documents.

Former Xavier player Edmond Sumner and/or his father, Ernest. Documents show they received at least $7,000 in advances while Edmond was in school.

Former Wichita State player Fred VanVleet. Documents show he received at least $1,000.

Former Clemson player Jaron Blossomgame received a payment by Venmo while in school for $1,100 according to the documents.

Apples Jones, the mother of former Kansas player Josh Jackson, received $2,700 according to documents

DAMN iNATOR 02-28-2018 03:48 AM

Story about Miles Bridges proved to be a load of shit. His mom improperly accepted $400, but he had nothing to do with it.

Nonetheless, a judge ordered that $40 of a $70 dinner in which an agent met with Bridges' family without him knowing of it, go to a charity of Bridges' choosing, as that's still a violation of NCAA rules and a judge ruled that was what was needed to clear the violation. The donation was made Monday.

Dirty program. Hopefully the flooding at MSU can wash away the corruption there

ClockShot 03-10-2018 01:40 PM

UConn and Kevin Ollie part ways. The ongoing NCAA investigation is the big reason, along with bad seasons after that championship season.

New A.D. gotta bring in a big name to bring that program back to prominence.

Tom Guycott 04-01-2018 10:40 PM

Go whatever teams are playing tomorrow for the NCAA men's toruney championship. I have no clue who even. I kinda lost interest once Ohio State got bounced, and even continued involvement by KU/KState/Wichita State didn't ring any bells.

Mostly because of the whole rotating network thing. If shit was just on regular-ass TV like back in the day, I'd have watched a bunch more. Or, at least on a fixed channel. There's too much other shit at my fingertips to be assed to go hunting for basketball in a different spot every game.

Hope it's a couple of someones who came out of nowhere, and not a Duke/Kentucky/UNC type matchup.

Simple Fan 04-02-2018 11:07 AM

Villanova vs Michigan. I'd rather see Villanova win.

Tom Guycott 04-02-2018 10:25 PM

Me too. Even aside from the obvious reason.
