Fritz was able to get multiple high-3-star WRs to commit at GSU. We're not recruiting well at any position.

Re: Navy GameDay Thread

Lot's of complaining from the posters who predicted that we win 3 or 4 games this year. I've still got us at 6 wins this year. We've had two close losses to 3-0 teams (11pts total). I'd trade that any day against the Toledo and CJ years. If you guys can't see improvement from the last two regimes t...

I'm pretty sure we have more analysis on this subject than any blogger/reporter and we are at the same conclusion we were at when this started: Tulane still has a chance at becoming P5. Roll wave!

Re: Big XII Expansion

Or, what if OU were to cut a deal with the AAC and bring OU, OSU, KU and K-State? Would that be enough to get the AAC P5 status? I don't think they would leave ISU and WVU hanging out there. I sense that there is somewhat of an alliance between OU and WVU in all the expansion drama. If OU were to c...

Re: Big XII Expansion

Here's what I think will ultimately happen. Tulane will become a member of a UT and OU-less BIGXII. Similar to what happened with the Big East years ago. Then, hello CUSA 2.0. I don't know. Would being in a conference with K-State, Iowa State, Baylor, TCU, etc, still be preferable to playing Tulsa,...

Unfortunately what is going to happen is the P5's are going to vote to go above the 85 limit. They have been making noise about it so you can bet it's coming sooner than later. I was thinking that as well. But there will eventually be a limit. Does them no good to have 200 players on the football t...

Re: Big XII Expansion

There is no way "big money" NCAA football evolves into just 4 major conferences. There would be entirely too many teams in each conference to make meaningful scheduling. It would end up as conferences with divisions that only play each other in "championship games" and would essentially be two sepa...

JJ, the Big 12 brass have never said USF/UCF need to be a package. But given all the complaints the conference members have about WVU being out on an island so far away, it wouldn't make sense to placate them with Cincinnati only to create a new island in Florida. And if WVU prefers UConn to Cincy,...

What a food fight. Sounds like Cincy's blandness (if that's even a word) may have caught up with them. It's interesting, the suggestions that BYU and certain other Big XII members may be plotting a Plan B. Sounds like no expansion might be the death knell of the Big XII. Maybe OU, along with Cincy ...
