Not sure if serious?
Win and the rest follows. The elite programs are few and they know how to win.
His posts have started to get strange. Think he hit the bottle early.....

Can't drink all day if you don't start early!
DBT did you forget to take your meds today? You are off your rocker tonight.
i agree with you dbt.
**** urban meyer and espn.
No. Not serious. Just frustrated that we probably have no shot, ever again, of winning a National Championship. This thing is so rigged, it is frustrating.
FC, it's rigged, isn't it? And Uber Myer gets free advertising. I'm not sure why I'm a "dick" for pointing this out.
Did you actually think the Irish had a chance in this game? There are the programs that will do what it takes to win and everyone else.
If you're trying to say that ESPN in not an unbiased journalist organization, save your breath, that points has been settled for a long, long time.
DBT = Mile High!
What about that incredibly insidious ad they keep running ... you know, the "hello!" ad where the HS running back flips over a defender (which is obviously fake) ... and the whole thing is basically an OU Sooner ad with Bob Stoops and everything. How the hell do they get away with that? :rolling_eyes:
saban will be sitting with fowler next year when meyer is on the sidelines coaching the mnc.
****ing biased espn muthakas
more likely they will need someone else because my guess is you will see Saban on one sideline and Meyer on the other side line during the game. That would have been the championship game this year if OSU had been eligible.
i don't think espn will allow that matchup until spurrier decides to retire
it would have been osu - nd, total snoozer.
Same result. OSU would have ass raped ND as well. This team really is not at this level. Great year and they are getting back on track but they are not at the level of OSU or Alabama. Not much of a disgrace as there are only a couple of teams that are.
And you are right, with the Bama loss to A&M, OSU and ND would have been in this game.
Edited for ****** spelling!
Here is my frustration: College football has become such big business that in order to succeed, you have to market your program. ESPN is the primary marketing tool. The more your program/coach can get a face and voice on ESPN, the more successful you become. And, yeah, it is incumbent on a program like ours to get to a level that earns national attention. But because of the rise of the likes of ESPN, the deck is more and more stacked against us. Plus, I hate Urban Meyer and wanted to bitch about him.
Marketing certainly helps but the school also need to invest heavily in their football program. The other thing is that this national title run by Bama is putting pressure on these other schools in the conference who are currently down like Auburn and Tennessee. How many Pac-12 schools are feeling the pressure to compete with Oregon? I'm not entirely sure what other schools around the conference are doing about facilities but at least there have been some recent big-time hires in the Pac.
As for marketing, LS needs to stop playing hardball with DTV and get the P12 Network on DTV.
all you have to do is "WIN" then all media sources have to pay attention to you. WIN and everything around your program is multiplied !
True. Look at Boise State.
If the P12 wants to get hyped by ESPN and compete on a consistent basis with the best of the SEC, the P12 as a whole needs to really start "taking its football seriously enough". Time to start emulating some of what the SEC does.
- get the ****ing DTV deal done
- every program needs to get into the arms race in a big way, reinvest those TV dollars in salaries/facilities/marketing/etc, focus on football
- reduce the number of conference games to 8 (match whatever the SEC does), no point in picking up an extra loss compared to the SEC teams
- hire competent officials & fire the incompetent ones (apparently all of them), you don't want games decided because of the zebras and it just looks bad
- conference-wide push to loosen admission standards for athletes to the NCAA minimum (again, match whatever the SEC does). Invest some of those TV dollars for tutors, test takers, paper writers, seat fillers - again, whatever the SEC does :thumbsup:
I'm sure there are more steps, but I think those would go pretty far in raising the football stature of the P12, which in turn gets more ESPN time and hype.
Admission standards aren't the issue to me. The issue to me is in what majors are offered. The NCAA sets, basically, GPA standards. It is much easier to achieve those standards at most SEC programs. Therefore, they can bring in mor academically challenged kids. It is a crock of ****.
Well, then the P12 needs to start offering whatever the "majors" are that the SEC schools do. If the P12 really wants to compete, then they need to level the playing field in every possible way.
What I think is that the NCAA needs to develop some sort of way to account for it. Maybe a school with a more difficult rating is allowed a lower APR.
