    Is the BCS Good or Bad for College Football?

    Scheduling tougher opponents for Boise.. is not so easy. The big schools don't want to schedule "home and homes" with "smaller" schools (except occasionally for Hawaii) -- particularly the traditionally good ones who might beat them.

    Is the BCS Good or Bad for College Football?

    I am all for a playoff.. but, if the Gators win 2 in a row, I"m still getting a (mythical) National Championship polo, tee and cap (LOL!). P.S: The Patriots beat the Giants in the regular season last year. Point being: the only way to determine the true champion is a playoff. The winner...

    Is the BCS Good or Bad for College Football?

    Here is how I view the BCS... In 2006, Florida won the 1st of 2 NCAA basketball championships. If NCAA hoops picked a champion the same way as the BCS does, the national title game would have been Duke v. Gonzaga, 2 teams that did not even make the Final Four. Florida was ranked 3rd in the...

    I Really Can't Stand Tressel Anymore

    Thanks for the Correction.. Oops!!!!!!!!!!! It was the Fiesta bowl, but OSU beat Miam!!!!!!!!! Ohio State has been very good to my school (UF). In 1997, it beat Arizona State in the Rose Bowl to set UF up to win the national championship. OSU beat the Canes in the Fiesta Bowl title game...

    I Really Can't Stand Tressel Anymore

    To Sandra.. I am not a hero worshipper of Tressel and I see way too much college football to make my wife happy. I went to Florida. My wife went to Michigan. The comments above say it all. Ohio State had trouble moving the ball before Pryor took over. Ohio State held a very high scoring Penn...

    I Really Can't Stand Tressel Anymore

    Disappearing Scars.. " Being a Florida grad, I do not have the mental scars. I do recall Florida had their own Moby Dick- winning in Tallahassee, which they didn't do for a while before they eventually do it." Those scars disappeared when Florida beat FSU to win the 1997 title, 52-30...

    I Really Can't Stand Tressel Anymore

    Wow, Bashing Tressel.. 1 national championship and 2 consecutive title game appearances doesn't get him a pass? As I recall, Ohio State hired Tressel because they couldn't beat Michigan. Tressel turned that series completely around and everyone is turning on him because he (finally) is...

    Upper Midwest Rain Now At My Door

    Hang in there.. I hope for everyone's sake that the waters recede soon. Anyway, it cannot hurt to take your belongings and leave for awhile. The price for being wrong is much smaller than the other way around. I always leave when they tell us to go when there are Hurricane warnings. my...

    Suddenly Lost Most HD Channels

    No Splitter.. The system worked well for a year and a half; the problem developed last month. Maybe it has to do with the installation of the new receiver. The channels on "103" will come back on after awhile. To the experts: is that a multiswitch issue? Why would the multiswitch work...

    Suddenly Lost Most HD Channels

    Good idea.. I will try it and report back. The dish alignment problem can bre eliminated (in my case). Parenthetically, I did not say it was happening "across the board to all users of 103." But, it is hapenning to a number of people in this thread.

    Suddenly Lost Most HD Channels

    Similar problem.. I have had a similar problem to: "(I still have my locals - - ESPN, ESPN2, TNT, HDNET, DHT, HBO). All of the HD channels have always came in fine until last week. From the limited knowledge I have, I believe that the missing channels are on the 103 bird. I am getting the...

    Congrats to the Giants

    Thanks.. JonUrban, for your nice words. I agree with you, too and have always believed that it is useful to play starters the last week to keep them sharp. It is also important for the integrity of the game, which is why I respect what Coughlin did. When Don Shula had his Super Bowl teams...

    Manning MVP????

    Tyree was MVP.. He caught a TD pas, and likely, w/o that amazing catch, the population of Perfectville would be 2.

    Congrats to the Giants

    Things run in cycles... The Dolphins have an unbeaten season and this year almost went winless.The Gators were down in basketball when I went there and dregs later; now they are two time defending champions (when did we become Duke?). The Gators football team went 0-10-1 in 1979; now they have...
