Don't care about ratings!

Care about championships!

Didn't realize the QB for Stanford is a local kid.

He went to the best high school on the planet, so can't say I'm surprised he's already a beast at Stanford.

I don't get why SEC teams root for their rivals. Very odd.

6-17 is a great record!  Let's give him a 11 year deal.

those losses were terrible, and the latter 2 were games we especially should have won.

hopefully next year we are all healthy and finally break through with an 8-9 win season.

The NCAA is seriously overstepping their bounds in the Miami case.

Quote
The NCAA has delivered a new and disturbing ultimatum to numerous former University of Miami football players: Either talk to us or we’ll believe Nevin Shapiro’s claims against you.

The NCAA last week mailed a letter to former players that allegedly committed NCAA violations by accepting gifts from Shapiro, including dinners, prostitutes, trips to nightclubs, cash and other perks. Shapiro told the NCAA that 114 players committed violations; Yahoo previously identified 72 of them.


Quote
Here’s how the letter to one player attorney reads:

"The purpose of this letter is to apprise you that the NCAA enforcement staff is requesting to schedule an interview with your clients regarding their knowledge of or involvement in possible NCAA violations concerning the University of Miami, Florida, football program.

"Interviewing your clients is important in order for the enforcement staff to conduct a thorough investigation, and both the staff and the institution request you and your clients’ cooperation in this matter. However, at this time, all attempts to schedule and execute interviews with [blank] have been unsuccessful. As a result, this letter serves as a formal and final request by the NCAA enforcement staff for interviews with [blank] to be completed by Nov. 23, 2012.

“If we do not hear back from you or your clients by that time, the staff will consider the non-response as your client’s admission of involvement in NCAA violations. You may contact me at [blank] in order to arrange this interview. Your assistance in this matter is appreciated.”

Sincerely,

Molly Richman,

Assistant Director of Enforcement

### My opinion: Regardless of whether it's bluffing or not, the NCAA - by sending this letter to former players - is being heavy-handed and manipulative. Considering the NCAA has no jurisdiction over former players, it's offensive that it would threaten to believe a convicted felon without additional corroboration. A felon, for that matter, who's in jail for a crime involving lying (a Ponzi scheme).


The twist, Molly Richman is a Gator alum. The NCAA is corrupt as hell. Taking the word of a known liar, unless lawyered-up players no longer under their jurisdiction come in and testify? GTFO.

hopefully the big 16 team conferences eventually just go their own way and tell the NCAA to screw off. Alternately, it would be nice if a former player waited for the official report then went after its authors for libel/slander

By the letter of the law, that would qualify for extortion as well. I don't think they'd have much of a case, though.

OSU about to complete an undefeated season. Being undefeated in the big ten is like being .500 in the SEC.
