    “One of the funnier twists on this new dynamic”

    It is pretty laughable there are still some people referring to this as “college football”.

    Miami basketball player publicly threatens to transfer if his NIL deal is not increased after a new transfer in to Miami got a higher deal

    It is just amazing how wrong the proponents of NIL were. All of the things they said would NEVER happen are now common mere months later. We were all told “it’s not going to work that way”. But it works exactly that way.

    A suggestion for B1G expansion: Kansas and Colorado

    It seems like The Big Ten does a whole lot to keep Penn State happy. And Penn State doesn’t want more schools that border Nebraska.

    Money Money Money Big Ten Money - "Staggering" News

    I’ve heard the guys at ESPN are good guys. Really nice guys too. So as soon as Texas and Oklahoma join the SEC, ESPN is going to just rip-up that contract that everybody signed last year and they’ll offer the SEC something substantially better so that they can keep up.

    Attendance hits lowest level since 1981

    FBS added about 10 teams that are on the very low end of attendance. This “expansion” of FBS accounts for about 1/3 of the decline of average attendance. Then, when you look at the trend leading up to it, COVID probably accounts for another 1/3 (which will probably reverse over the the next...

    College Football Playoff expansion delayed as officials fail to form consensus over numerous issues

    The Big XII’s interests are most closely aligned with the G5 at this point. And the G5 happens to have wanted the same thing as the SEC this time around. Automatic bids will likely be part of the next playoff format, and no one is going to be fighting alongside the Big XII to make sure they...

    College Football Playoff expansion delayed as officials fail to form consensus over numerous issues

    People don’t get it. They get all excited about the 5/11 seats (and “votes”) the G5 has on the committee. But the contract requires unanimous votes to do anything. So the G5’s seats on the committee are basically figureheads. They have no power, and probably have minuscule in The cumulative...

    College Football Playoff expansion delayed as officials fail to form consensus over numerous issues

    With this committee effectively dissolved the G5 has literally zero votes. This news is bad for the SEC. But it’s even worse for the G5 conferences. There is no way they will have a seat at the table the next time discussions happen. They’ll have to take whatever they’re offered, or go form...

    Gene Smith said that if Ohio State is selected to host a College Football Playoff game in the future, he would recommend playing indoors

    Bait a switch. Tell the SEC to not worry, and that you want to play inside in Indy, Detroit and Minneapolis. Then play all of the quarterfinals outside in the snow.

    Gene Smith said that if Ohio State is selected to host a College Football Playoff game in the future, he would recommend playing indoors

    Playing Alabama outside in subzero temperatures would be even better than beating USC in the Rose Bowl.

    Lane Kiffin says Texas A&M should have to pay a luxury tax for what they spent on their recruits this year.

    Adding Texas A&M was like the Big Ten adding Penn State. Solid program, but not a new alpha. TX football already generates far more revenue than Alabama. Once in the SEC it will probably be almost twice the size of Alabama, and Oklahoma will be similar to Georgia. Of course, it remains to be...

    Still stings

    Minnesota lost to Iowa because when Ferentz mindlessly went for it on fourth down in the fourth quarter, and came-up short, they just gave them a first down to prevent a fan meltdown at home.

    Lane Kiffin says Texas A&M should have to pay a luxury tax for what they spent on their recruits this year.

    The cracks in the expanded SEC are already beginning to show, and the heavies haven’t even arrived yet.
