Re: Ivey news

Satt was named AHC BECAUSE he was the obvious heir apparent (or at least should have been). Ivey getting the title might set him up to be considered when the time comes, depending on what the job entails.

I certainly don’t think this means he’s coach-in-waiting, or even the favorite for the job.

Re: Benson other G5 Commissioners Oppose Expansion

Is the idea that CFP expansion would reduce bowls because the earlier rounds would presumably be on campus sites? Or is their some other rationale?

Re: Final AP

We had our chances and didn't deliver. Should have beaten Wake and then lost to a bad UMass team and UL-Monroe team. Toledo was our only quality win of the year. Not a knock, just looking at it without blinders on. Yeah we had a better year last year and got no votes then. No way we were getting vo...

Re: Jalen Hurts transfers to the Stink?

If his top priority is training for another position in the NFL, then he should go to a school that's recruiting him for that position. Otherwise, he's thrown for nearly 5,000 yards and 40 TDs in his first two seasons, so I don't see why he'd go play triple option somewhere. Then again he may just s...

Re: Jalen Hurts transfers to the Stink?

He was SEC OPOY as a true freshman. Think you’re underestimating how many P5s could use a good QB, running or otherwise. Also not sure GS would be such a clear choice among G5s. To me the obvious one would be to reunite with Kiffin at FAU except that he might not be here by the time Hurts sits out a...

Re: Jalen Hurts transfers to the Stink?

Why would he go there? He’ll have P5 programs lined up to court him should he decide to transfer.

Re: Benson other G5 Commissioners Oppose Expansion

"Each time there's been a change, it's been for the better," said Sun Belt commissioner Karl Benson. "With all due respect to UCF, if we didn't have the system we have today, would they be playing in the Peach Bowl last week?"

i dont want to play ANY decent FCS team. Certainly not NDSU or JMU...lets stick with teams that our guys can beat badly even if we bring our C game...It wont help us any by losing to a good FCS team
This x1000. It also won’t help us any to beat a good FCS team. Those aren’t our rivals anymore.

Poor clock management at the end of the half by JMU cost them a shot at a TD.

While I understand booking FCS teams at home, I'd rather we stop that practice all together. I look forward to the Penn State, Troy, & ArkState games.
No FCS games = no Penn State (or UGA/Tennessee/etc.)

Re: Assistant pay $10mm

As crazy as it sounds, Orgeron's salary of $3.5 mil is probably relatively modest for a school at that level (which it should be, as he's never really done anything to warrant landing a job like that in the first place). So maybe they're following a model of paying the HC less but the assistants mor...

Re: UCF big win for g5

Haha, this is absurd. You just can't claim a national championship. It isn't something you can just make up and proclaim as a true title. Well, that's how it was done for most of college football history. Alabama, among others, still claims various titles from years in which they weren't recognized...

Re: UCF big win for g5

The AAC is really top-heavy. Sorta like the SEC. And all G5 conferences. I don't know. Two teams who went .500 in the AAC won bowl games 49-7 (over Virginia) and 28-3 (over FIU). The worst team in the conference (Tulsa) beat Houston by 28 and ULL by 24, plus lost to Toledo by 3 and USF by 7. Tulane...

UCF and Western Michigan both went undefeated and both finished 12th in final BCS voting. Even if there is expansion to 8 teams G5 most likely excluded unless the committee is made to include them. I had no idea that UCF was the largest school in the country until recently. How they went 0-12 is ba...
