Can Not wait for Florida to kick the crap out of Louisville.

While we wait for bowl season to arrive.Is any one watching the Heisman presentation tonight ?

Don Vito 12-08-2012 08:02 PM

Ole Miss is going to a bowl this year. Not even the most diehard fan thought that was possible. Hugh Freeze is the truth.

jrdrylie 12-08-2012 08:18 PM

I posted my ranking of the bowls in terms of how excited I am to watch them in another thread, so I won't here. But outside of the BCS Bowls, here are my favorites:

Chick-fil-A Bowl: LSU has a great defense, especially on the line. And Tajh Boyd is one of my favorite players to watch. Some may think his stats are inflated because the ACC sucks but I think he would be successful anywhere. We'll see. This should be a good contrast of style.

Holiday Bowl: I'm not a fan of defense, so this is my type of game. I haven't checked the over/under on this game, but I'm taking the over.

Famous Idaho Potato Bowl: Crappy name but should be a good game. Chuckie Keeton is fun to watch and Toledo is always fun.

Personally, I'll be at the Beef O'Brady's Bowl. So stupid, weather in St. Petersburgh in December is beautiful and this game is in a dome. Bump that. If you''re watching, look for me!

Pretty high for Alabama, those tutors must be pretty smart.

JRTPlaya21 12-11-2012 03:04 PM

Or maybe the athletes at Alabama aren't as dumb as you want to make them out to be......

Smooth Criminal 12-11-2012 03:16 PM

Doubtful. It's Alabama.

Boises high up on that list as another school with pretty terrible academics from what I remember.

draftguru151 12-11-2012 03:37 PM

It has to do with relative graduation rates with the rest of the school, so maybe normal Bama students are just dumb?

JHL6719 12-12-2012 12:01 PM

Barrett Jones did win the William V. Campbell Trophy (academic Heisman)

Trogdor 12-14-2012 03:57 PM

Alabama defensive end Quinton Dial will not be suspended by the SEC for his disputed hit on Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray in the conference title game on Dec. 1.

The SEC ruled Friday that the matter would be handled internally by the two schools.

I'm shocked. Not. Known all along that the SEC wasn't going to punish a player headed to the National Championship. Now if it was Georgia's player at fault SEC might of come down with a suspension since they are not headed to the NCG.

As far as academics go have you heard the interviews after any 'Bama game? I wouldn't be shocked if some of them couldn't read and write let alone score highly on a real exam.

Which would also explain Michigan being so low

If Georgia had won do you think the player that poked an Alabama player in the eye would have gotten suspended? Doubtful. Hating won't get you anywhere so move along.

No. Did you graduate from 'Bama? Re-read.

Translation: If a Georgia player hit McCarron on a cheap shot away from the play he would be suspended for their bowl game.

Read my sig and figure it out for yourself why I support Bama. And saying somebody can't read & write sounds like hate to me but I'm clearly biased...

You're a front-runner?

No it's called I buried one of my best friends after the storm in Tuscaloosa. I cheer on his school for him. And I've been a Duke fan since I was a kid so good effort though. And here I thought you were one of the smart ones on the board.

There's a difference between cheering for your friend's school and being a blatant homer defending their "honor". Cheering is not the same as an irrational angst for those who disagree with you. The statement about the SEC punishing players is widespread and hardly tin-foil hat worthy. Use Google.

The one about reading and writing is an obvious jab but it applies to most universities but it's just a tad more obvious when you are a spotlighted team.

JRTPlaya21 12-14-2012 05:04 PM

Thank you for your positive insight. I feel like I've gained so much more from my use of google.

Your welcome. May the Google be with you.

You just completely agreed with his main point. No player was getting suspended before the National Championship.

And saying the players on Bama sound like they can't read or write isn't hate, it's pretty obvious they sound dumb. Except in Alabama where that is known as average.

JRTPlaya21 12-14-2012 05:15 PM

Well played Smooth, well played.

I don't care at all for FCS football, but nonetheless I'm watching Ga. Southern versus North Dakota State in the playoffs. Apparently a kicker who just joined the team two days ago is going for a ~50 yard field goal to send it to overtime.

EDIT: But it was blocked.

Umm this has no value when no one knows has any idea what it's based on. It has even less value when a school like Boise 3rd highest.
