South Carolina being a top ten team is a joke based on what I saw last night.

Fuck the Big Ten for keeping the Ohio State game off of TV here.

Well K-State is starting off the season just like they did last year. They are playing a tight game against a team they should be romping. 9-6 KSU leads MO State at the half. I'm OK with it as long as the rest of the season plays out like last year. They barely beat a D-1 opponent 7-6 to start the season then they got on a roll and had a solid season.

I'm very worried about Notre Dame. I think it's going to be a tough season given the schedule with Michigan, Michigan State, Oklahoma, USC, etc... If our secondary has trouble stopping Navy's vaunted passing attack what the heck are we going to look like against legit passing schools?

The Big 10 is a joke. Ohio over Penn St... LOL. Michigan doesn't look better than a FCS opponent... LOL.

The others...
Northern Iowa takes Wisconsin to the wire.
Northwestern needed a miracle on Syracuse.
Iowa escapes Northern Illinois.
Minnesota goes 3OT with UNLV.
Mich St barely beat a Boise St team that no longer has its Offensive genius (UF) and replaced all of its offense and most of the defense i.e. not last years Boise St team.

His health got better so he decided to come back :lol: What a joke.
Track record: 31 arrests under Meyer.
The best one... Chris Rainey who couldn't take No from a girl so he stalked her and then threatened to kill her. Meyer responded by allowing him to continue playing as he doesn't care about women ;)

I think I just had a heart attack.

Defense looked great, but LT has some serious rust. Hopefully he'll work on it during next week's less challenging game or else this will be a long season.

WVU offense picked up right where it left off--would have replicated the 70 points from the Orange Bowl if not for a missed extra point in beating Marshall 69-34. Had 655 total yards, 331 on the ground, 334 in the air.

Geno Smith got his Heisman campaign of to a good start: 32/36 for 323 yards with 4tds and no INTs. Also rushed for 65 yards and a td. Sat all but a minute or so of the 4th quarter.

On the downside the defense was shaky. Especially the 2nd and third string. Giving up 34 points and 545 yards to Marshall is worrisome given the great offenses in the Big 12.

That said, Oklahoma is the other top contender for the conference title, and they were very shaky and may not be much improved from last year.

WVU is off next week, and has two more easy games (James Madison and Maryland) before getting into conference play.

Michigan doesn't even deserve to be ranked. They're getting points based on program name alone.

Same thing is going on with Oklahoma being ranked above WVU.

Some upsets yesterday after a pretty boring week 1.

Biggest was Louisiana-Monroe over #8 Arkansas. Others were Oregon State over #13 Wisconsin and UCLA over #16 Nebraska, and Arizona over #18 Oklahoma State.

Surprised Rich Rod has his offense rolling in year 1 at Arizona. His offenses struggled the first year or two at WVU and Michigan until he got his system in place. But they put up 59 against Oklahoma State yesterday and while they only got 24 against Toledo last week that was mainly due to turnovers as they had over 600 yards of offense.

No surprises with the Big 10 teams. They are jokes as the conference has been struggling this year.

Wisconsin down.
Nebraska down.
Penn St down.
Iowa down.
Illinois down.
Purdue down.
Michigan escapes Air Force
Ohio St allowed UCF to stay with them.

---------
That Arkansas game was a fun one to see. 4th and scramble for TD in OT. Brilliant! I wonder if Arkansas will be unranked end of next week since Alabama rolls in.

http://espn.go.com/c...me-football-acc

Notre Dame is joining the ACC in all sports but football. But will play 5 games a year against ACC teams in football.

That should sure up the ACC some, and make those FSU/Clemson to the Big 12 (and teams like MD/UVA to Big 10) rumors die down for a while.

With that I guess the Big 12 will stay at 10 for the foreseeable future. They just signed a 13 year, $2.6 million dollar TV deal that required all the teams to sign their tier 1 and tier 2 media rights to the conference for those 13 years (i.e. the Big 12 gets their TV money even if they leave for another conference) so no one is going anywhere. And I don't think any of the teams they could easily get (Louisville, BYU etc.) would get the TV deal upped enough that the split per team doesn't drop from the current $20 million per team per year.

As for ND, this is probably a smart move. The 5 games will probably get them to drop some of their traditional rivals--which in a way sucks. But their current set up gives them far too difficult of schedule most years to have any realistic shot at making the BCS title game or future 4 team playoff.

They keep mentioning that they will have to drop traditional rivals, but if you look at their schedule this year, they have 4 ACC opponents (counting Pitt) on their schedule already.

vs Navy
vs Purdue
@ #10 Michigan State
vs #17 Michigan
vs Miami (FL)
vs #21 Stanford
vs #25 Brigham Young
@ #5 Oklahoma
vs Pittsburgh
@ Boston College
vs Wake Forest
@ #2 USC

I don't think 5 games will be too difficult while keeping all of the big rivalries.

Oh, good point in that case. That may be why they opted for the ACC over the Big 12 that was also rumored to be ok with them coming in with only a partial football schedule.

At least gets BC and Pitt who they play most years in conference, and some other teams they're playing currently (and presumably over the next few years).

I'm all for them keeping playing Mich. State, Michigan, USC, Stanford, etc. every year, as I can't stand ND and they'll continue to be irrelevant on those kind of schedules as they can't recruit at that level anymore with their diminished reputation and tougher admission standards than most big time football programs.

This is probably great news for L'ville if the BIG12 decides to expand. They were hoping to land ND but L'ville makes a lot of sense. The Big East is pretty much dead. I hope Rutgers finds a way off this sinking ship. Also, the ACC is now the premier BBall conference in the country.

#2242 dmaul1114

dmaul1114

Posted 12 September 2012 - 09:24 PM

Just saw that the ACC now has a $50 million dollar buyout for teams to leave, effective immediately. So yeah, no ACC teams are leaving anytime soon.


I think the Big 12 stays at 10 for the reason I noted in the quoted post. They aren't going to add teams that don't bring a big enough media market to get the TV deal upped. They aren't going to divide the pie more ways if that means current teams get less than the $20 million per year they make now.

So if they want to go to 12 to have a championship game again, they have to find two teams to add that will bring in at least $40 million a year extra between them and money from the title game. I'm not sure Louisville plus another Big East team or someone like BYU bring enough to get the deal upped that much. Really needed a home run like FSU & Clemson for that to happen.

Personally, I like staying at 10. I like the round robin schedule, like that WVU gets to play Texas and Oklahoma every year after suffering through boring ass big east schedules from 2004 through last season etc.

If they pick up UConn they are setting going forward, especially because they are holding out hope the Domers will join them for football down the road.

Either way, the ACC has finally killed off the Big East. It took them a decade but they did it.

I don't think it changes the Big East much from the state they were in with the defections of WVU, Pitt and Syracuse.

It will still be a very strong basketball league--look for them to grab someone like Xavier to replace ND in basketball and not miss a beat.

Football was already a joke, and ND wasn't even a partial member, so there no more a joke on that front. Though losing ND in bowl agreements will hurt on that front. But the BE was done as a major football conference as soon as WVU left and TCU decided not to join.

That weakened it, but it still ended up stronger in conference RPI than the ACC some years. Mainly WVU carrying the league (3 BCS bowl wins post first ACC raid), but Louisville was a top 10 team for a couple years before Petrino bolted. Cincy had those back to back BCS years, including the one undefeated regular season as well.

But with WVU gone, and Pitt and Cuse as well (programs with a lot of history, despite being down recently) the league was finished as a legit BCS level football conference.

I disagree. To me, they go from #1 to #3 (behind Big 10). ACC easily is #1 in Basketball when Syracuse/Pitt/Notre Dame come on. 3 teams that would be in the Top 5 each year (Syracuse,Duke,UNC). Ridiculous.

My work...
Syracuse, the meal ticket, gone.
Notre Dame typically is in the thick of it.
Calhoun retired so UConn is questionable.
All that is left is Louisville, Marquette, and Georgetown. These three aren't as good as Mich St, Ohio St, Indiana, and Michigan.

Sorry for going a little off topic
