        Yea its academics as the rumors have been around for a while since he missed the bowl game for that reason also. Its a big loss since Ealy is gone and it now means only 3 scholorship HB's.

        Crowell - Everyone knows his story suppose to be the savior

        Ken Malcone - redshirt freshman big back around 225 lbs struggled with injuries.

        Carlon Thomas - Career backup, undersized, fumbling problems

            Wait, so who is your favorite college team JRT? You've got Duke and VCU in your sig, you refer to UGA as "us" and I swore you used to be a VaTech fan.

              A few months old, but holy bajeezus. Just so you know, the most ever points scored in a single season before this was by Alabama in 2008...with 28 points. Before this, the team with the most cummulative points since the FC was created in '06 was Florida...with 59 points.

                Our primary kick returner, Bryce Sherman is leaving SCAR. He was a fun little dude to watch. Was never really as great as I was hoping he'd be, but I liked him. Now I'm really hoping Bruce Ellington can win that job. I cant wait to see him out there. Big ups to the two sport athletes.

                Thanks BoneKrusher^

                    • I don't think Ealy is with UGA anymore. But yeah, plus all of the potential from the talented freshman and sophomores that just need to prove themselves. Could be very nice.

                      • According to the Sporting News, word is coming out that Oklahoma and Texas A&M officials may look at moving to the SEC because of the Longhorn Network. This is hardly surprising as there was widespread speculation last year that Texas A&M was in heated discussions with the SEC on moving to that league should a favorable deal not be worked out with the Big XII.

                        At seemingly the eleventh hour, a deal was worked out that would split the largest chunk of the television payout amongst Texas, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M but that deal has since been minimized by the vast amount of money Texas will receive by forming their own television network in association with ESPN.

                        The dissolution of the Big XII seems to be all but a foregone conclusion. The remaining members of the Big XII outside of Texas all look to be left in the Longhorn's rearview as that school accumulates a tremendous payout from their current television deal which is coupled with the payout they will still receive from the Big XII.

                        College football is all about the money and if a university provides itself with a clear advantage, especially over fellow conference members, then those universities left in the cold will search for greener pastures. Texas A&M and Oklahoma seem to be doing just that.

                        When the Big XII dissolves, it will create a feeding frenzy unlike anything college football has seen since the ACC expanded in 2003. The Pac-12 was looking at becoming a super conference last season by adding Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Utah, and Colorado. Now, however, it seems that the SEC stands to gain the most.

                        An Oklahoma and Texas A&M defection would signal the end of the Big XII. The conference already saw two of its cornerstone teams defect last season when Colorado left for the Pac-12 and Nebraska departing for the Big Ten. That would leave Texas as the lone alpha in a conference full of mediocrity (no offense Oklahoma State). In that event it would possibly be in Texas' best interest to become an independent much like BYU did this past season.

                        If the SEC were to add Oklahoma and Texas A&M, they would add two tradition soaked football programs into their ranks and get footholds in two additional states for recruiting. It is doubtful, though, that the SEC would stay pat at expanding to just 14 teams. The ideal number would likely be 16 to create an even number in each division or provide the opportunity to go four 4 team divisions like the NFL uses.

                        The two other programs the SEC could look at from the Big XII would be Oklahoma State and Texas Tech. The state legislature of Oklahoma would likely pressure any conference looking to add one university to take the other so Oklahoma comes equipped with Oklahoma State. With their football program on the rise it would be advantageous for the SEC to create a stranglehold on that state with the inclusion of both of its top tier universities.

                        Texas Tech is a provocative piece, albeit not as provocative as Missouri, for the SEC. Not only is the football team coached by SEC veteran Tommy Tuberville but it would also provide the SEC with a tremendous foothold in the state of Texas for recruiting. Much like with the Oklahoma state legislature, the Texas state legislature would like to keep as many prominent Texas universities together and if Texas were to go independent then the SEC may be forced to take Texas Tech to pair with Texas A&M. Virginia Tech, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Florida State, and Miami have all been as targets for the SEC should they expand to 16 teams and it could very well be one of those teams that get the invite..

                        The SEC would then face the task of aligning divisions. They could create two 8 teams divisions or borrow an idea from the formerly bloated WAC when they had 16 teams in its ranks. That idea would be to create four 4 team divisions and rotate opponents each year while maintaining one traditional rivalry game from a division. For clarification, this is how it could break down.

                        The two 8 team divisions would look as such:

                        East:
                        Alabama
                        Auburn
                        Florida
                        Georgia
                        Kentucky
                        South Carolina
                        Tennessee
                        Vanderbilt

                        West
                        Arkansas
                        LSU
                        Mississippi State
                        Ole Miss
                        Oklahoma*
                        Oklahoma State*
                        Texas A&M*
                        Texas Tech*

                        The other solution would be four 4 team divisions.

                        West
                        Oklahoma
                        Oklahoma State
                        Texas A&M
                        Texas Tech

                        South
                        Arkansas
                        LSU
                        Mississippi State
                        Ole Miss

                        Central
                        Alabama
                        Auburn
                        Tennessee
                        Vanderbilt

                        East
                        Florida
                        Georgia
                        Kentucky
                        South Carolina

                        With these four divisions each team would play an opposing division on a rotating basis. One year the SEC West (Oklahoma, & Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Texas Tech) would play the SEC South, the following year they would play the SEC Central, and then the SEC North. That would give every team a 7 game schedule in which there would be two additional conference games added just like is done currently.

                        Traditional rivalries would stay. Alabama would still play LSU every year (since Tennessee would be in their division), Florida would play Tennessee, Arkansas would play Texas A&M, Auburn would play Georgia, and so on and so forth. The other conference game would be rotated every year two years so that teams get a home-and-away series. Oklahoma State would play Mississippi State at home one year, then away the next, and then would play Ole Miss, repeat the process, and so on and so forth.

                        With Texas being an independent and four former Big XII schools leaving for the higher revenue sharing SEC, the remaining Big XII schools (Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, and Missouri) would have their choice of what to do next. Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State and Missouri could all be targets to join the Big Ten. The Mountain West would want to pounce immediately on all five schools. The other possibility would be for those five schools to possibly form their own conference by inviting Houston, SMU, Southern Miss, Tulsa and some of the more competitive members of the Mountain West (Boise State, Air Force, and Nevada)

                        The last option would be a long shot but if those five schools were able to retain their BCS status (which would be doubtful to due their winning percentages and bowl appearances) then those members from Conference USA and the Mountain West would undoubtedly bolt immediately for automatic qualifying status.

                        The only hope for the Big XII to remain a whole conference would be to move on without Texas (if they were to become an independent) and invite teams like Boise State, BYU, TCU, or Houston (any of those three with the outside possibility of SMU) to get back up to 12 teams and a conference championship game.

                        Whatever happens after the demise of the Big XII will drastically change the landscape of college football even more than the most recent changes have. The potential split of the Big East will pale in comparison as to the free-for-all that will happen once the teams from the former Big XII are available for pillaging.

                          • Twitter comments from Tim Brando (@TimBrando).

                            By 2014 OU and A&M will be in the SEC West. They will be laughed at Nationally for allowing UT to dictate their profit.

                            It's simple BIG12(or10)fans. Regardless of new Conf. Deal the financial disparity between UT and everyone else is too great.A&M/OU must go.

                            Okie St. Is also a strong candidate to exit. I was asked about A&M and OU. Agreed that the BIG 12 is in trouble. UT's situation exposed!

                            Let's be clear. The SEC does not need any of those teams. However if Economics matter then all 3 should want and be out by 14.

                            Next weeks Big12 Media Days will be entertaining. Dan Beebe's job not easy. A&M, Okie St,OU, and Mizzou toSEC

                            Those BIG12 teams wont admit it now, but conversations are Underway. The HS decision being put on hold temporarily says all you need to know

                            There is no way the Administrations of other Big 12 schools can justify the financial disparity between UT and the rest existing this way.

                              • interesting note for gator fans, muschamp had named murphy the backup qb ahead of driskell and brisset

                                edit: also, diab, in lsu's defense, a lot of times schools like the ones you listed won't play a team like lsu because it's much more damaging to their program than towson's. the unc fanbase won't be quite as ok with a blowout as towson's fans will. the fcs school will happily take their chance to be the next app state and whatever payment they get and run.
