2014 LGP College Football Thread

Postby slappybrown on Mon Feb 10, 2014 10:36 am

And so we close the 2013 season with confirmation that the ACC Master Race has started what will undoubtedly equal, if not surpass, the SEC-dominated era FSU ended.

The biggest change this season, of course, is the new playoff system:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/College_Football_Playoff

Image

Way to spring for the canaan-level graphic designer, NCAA.

This is the 13-member panel that will select the four teams:

Member Position Conference affiliation[16] Term expires

Jeff Long (chairman) Arkansas athletic director SEC February 2018

Barry Alvarez Wisconsin athletic director Big Ten February 2017

Michael C. Gould Former Air Force Academy superintendent N/A February 2016

Pat Haden USC athletic director Pac-12 February 2016

Tom Jernstedt Former NCAA executive vice president N/A February 2018

Oliver Luck West Virginia athletic director Big 12 February 2017

Archie Manning Former NFL and Ole Miss quarterback N/A February 2017

Tom Osborne Former Nebraska coach and athletic director Big Ten February 2016

Dan Radakovich Clemson athletic director ACC February 2018

Condoleezza Rice Former U.S. Secretary of State and Stanford provost N/A February 2017

Mike Tranghese Former American Athletic Conference commissioner The American February 2016

Steve Wieberg Former USA Today reporter N/A February 2018

Tyrone Willingham Former Stanford/Notre Dame/Washington coach Pac-12, Independent February 2018


The biggest question is whether there will be 3 or 4 ACC teams in the playoff, and whether Pitt will be the 1 or 2 seed.

Other predictions for local/regional teams:

PSU - 0-12
WVU - 0-12
tOSU - 1-11 (lone W v. PSU)

Week one has some amazing games:

Oklahoma State vs. Florida State (Arlington)
LSU vs Wisconsin (Houston)
Clemson at Georgia
West Virginia vs. Alabama (Atlanta) - Where I am actually root for WVU.

Early top 25s put FSU at the one spot:

http://espn.go.com/college-football/sto ... 5-rankings
http://athlonsports.com/college-footbal ... op-25-2014

I assume Pitt's absence to be an editorial error in both cases.

Prediction:

(1) FSU v. (4) USC
(2) Bama v. (3) Oklahoma

A nation breathes of sigh of relief as no B10 team pollutes the first ever playoff with their pre-historic mongoloid ball that inevitably leads to laughable blowouts when they play good teams from out of conference :pop: dot biz

Good thing Condoleeza Rice is part of the group that decides who plays for the arbitrary national championship title.

She'd get a "Belichick determined to resume Spying" memo and promptly ignore it.

That fine, upstanding young gentleman is Louisville recruit Sharieff Rhaheed-Muhammad, who was arrested and charged with a felony count of lewd lascivious behavior after getting his 14 year old cousin pregnant.

Glad to see someone finally recognizing college football for what it is: a professional minor league to the NFL.

It's important to note that this decision only allows Northwestern to unionize and as of now only private schools because the federal labor agency does not have jurisdiction over public universities. So no unions at PSU or Pitt anytime soon.

UNC player gets A- for final paper that probably could have been written by a 2nd grader.

The paper:

On the evening of Decemeber Rosa Parks decided that she was going to sit in the white people section on the bus in Montgomery, Alabama. During this time blacks had to give up there (sic) to whites when more whites got on the bus. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat. Her and the bus driver began to talk and the conversation went like this. "Let me have those front seats" said the driver. She didn't get up and told the driver that she was tired of giving her seat to white people. " I'm going to have you arrested," said the driver. "You may do that," Rosa Parks responded. Two white came in and Rosa Parks asked them "why do you all push us around?" The police officer replied and said " I don't know, but the law is the law and you're under arrest.


I'm actually surprised the correct form of your/you're was used. But that received an A-. Terrible.

Bama in again? If it wasn't for their work-release program they'd all be pressing license plates in the pokey.

The wails of "but these athletes fund the other sports" comments have, of course, already started. It's not a WR's responsibility to bankroll the tennis team.
