I need to know who to complain to that might get some results about the pitiful Auburn coverage on this site. Click ANY SEC team and you're going to see loads of articles post signing day. Auburn has 2 from THIS site on their page and one of those is about the damn scoreboard. The rest of anything is hyperlinks to ESPN, Al.com and 247Sports.
Check it out.. then tell me how wrong I am.
Regarding harassed kid from Auburn. PLEASE block out his phone number!!!!
First, great article. This is great insight into a ton of college players! Kudos.
I am emailing you to see if you can clear something up for me...(allow me to attempt to explain).
I am not a follower of college football.
I mainly watch professional football.
With that said, I rely on articles such as yours when I start my research as to who my beloved Vikings should draft in April.
Therein lies my conundrum.
I have read many, many, many mock drafts and there seems to be a consensus at to which players are the "top 5" in each spot.
Give or take a few players, but the same handful of names appear at the top of each position.
(I hope I am making sense.)
Your article, seems to go against the consensus.
You give amazing detail as to your reasoning but I dont watch enough college football to know if you are correct or if the "consensus" is correct.
If you have a moment, can you please shed a little light on this for me?
Thank you Brian.
Keep up the good work - this is fun for me to read! :)
A NCAA FOOTBALL PLAYOFF for NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP A Simple Guide by J D
FACT: There are always 13 Saturdays in the 92 days of September thru November
STEP ONE: Require all teams to finish their 12 GAMES by the END of November. There would be time for ONE OPEN DATE . Or TWO using the LAST SATURDAY in AUGUST. STEP TWO: Have an NCAA selection committee pick the TOP 32 Football Teams: FOUR Divisions would be set up: East, South, Midwest, West. Four Number One Seeds would be chosen in each Division and progressively on down: Number Two through Eight. SEED Number One would play Number Eight, Number Two plays Number Seven and so on.
STEP THREE: SIXTEEN GAMES would be played ( 32 Chosen Teams) on the First Saturday in December. The SWEET SIXTEEN winners would play on the second Saturday in December. STEP FOUR: The Elite Eight Winners are in the HIGHEST FOUR BOWLS called CHAMPIONSHIP BOWLS and would be played on New Years Day. STEP FIVE: The FOUR QUARTER FINAL TEAMS play their TWO GAMES on January 8 or later. STEP SIX : THE FINALS: 2 WINNERS would play a week later near January 17 for the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. Conclusion: Only FOUR TEAMS would NEED to PLAY past the Holiday Weekend of January the 1st. And the rest of the Teams could go back to their studies and Classes.
Also: The 30 plus BOWLS are kept . The LOSERS in the FIRST or SECOND Round can PLAY again in any BOWLS but the FOUR CHAMPIONSHIP BOWLS and win and rejoin the Top Twenty five.
Come on man, How can you honestly say Gurley is the best running back in the nation? Even the NFL scouts say Abdullah takes that spot.
stay out of the SEC you don't know nothing...
You're 100% correct on it being crazy to vote Motley for ACC POY, but the shot at Loeffler was unnecessary when his specialty is known for developing QBs.
when are you retiring ????? seriously though
