Ok. Now I see what you're saying. If that is the case nothing will happen, impossible for NCAA to regulate that (these kids are probably begged by fans to attend their schools all the time) and I'm certain the university knew nothing of it ( a known sex offender buying these underage kids drinks). It's not a Nevin Shapiro incident in other words. I'd just like to get to watching football, tired of numbskull fans ruining the game for the rest of us.

Default Why College Football Should Be Banned

If the vast majority of major college football programs made money, the argument to ban football might be a more precarious one. But too many of them don't—to the detriment of academic budgets at all too many schools. According to the NCAA, 43% of the 120 schools in the Football Bowl Subdivision lost money on their programs. ...

There are the medical dangers of football in general caused by head trauma over repetitive hits. There is the false concept of the football student-athlete that the NCAA endlessly tries to sell, when any major college player will tell you that the demands of the game, a year-round commitment, makes the student half of the equation secondary and superfluous. There are the scandals that have beset programs in the desperate pursuit of winning—the University of Southern California, Ohio State University, University of Miami and Penn State University among others.

Oklahoma baby, excited again, but I don't have amazingly high expectations.
The offense i'm not worried about, hopefully the D holds together.

Be interesting to see if Landry Jones plays himself to a cement lock 1st round pick, or falls down in the draft.

Recieved word that Miami expects to recieve the NOA in the next two weeks or so. There is wide disagreement as to the range of what to expect. One source indicated they heard about 12 scholarships and one additional bowl ban (I say additional because Miami already self-imposed one bowl ban for 2011) whereas one other report suggests its much more.

Good Luck man. It's awful going through this sh*t as a fan. I wouldn't wish what we went through (OSU) as a fan base on Michigan. It could have been much worse for us. Sadly, those horrible things happened in Happy Valley and it took the spotlight off of us. If the NCAA pokes around, they will find something at every school.

The Big 12 and the Southeastern conferences have announced a deal that will pit their football regular-season champions against each other in a New Year's Day bowl game for five years beginning in 2014, positioning themselves for the expected switch to a four-team playoff.

In fact, SEC commissioner Mike Slive all but said that scenario is coming in Friday's announcement of the agreement between two of the most successful BCS conferences.

"A new January bowl tradition is born," Slive said in a statement. "This new game will provide a great matchup between the two most successful conferences in the BCS era and will complement the exciting postseason atmosphere created by the new four-team model.

There goes the stability of the ACC. They're going to be the new Big East. What a shame.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Former West Virginia football coach Bill Stewart died Monday of what athletic department officials said was an apparent heart attack.

A statement issued by spokesman Michael Fragale said Stewart's family notified the university on Monday. Fragale said Stewart was golfing at the time.

Stewart, 59, resigned last summer and was replaced by Dana Holgorsen the same night. Stewart had gone 28-12 in three seasons after taking over for Rich Rodriguez but failed to earn a Bowl Championship Series berth.

I know former Penn State backup safety Tim Buckley also left the team and is headed to NC State.

Big 12 is going to be interesting.

OU and WVU are the top two teams. Texas is still looking for a QB but their defense is pretty salty. TCU should be competitive.

OSU and KSU are going to take a step back. OSU is starting a frosh QB and KSU surely wont get every bounce their way like last year.

Baylor is going to fall off the map without RGIII and ISU is certainly going to upset either WVU or OU because tahts what they do.

Tech is going to suck again.

And Kansas will suck again, but hopefully not nearly as bad as the last two years. Maybe this time we can get a first down against Texas.

For the first time in a long time I dont think the Big 12 has a national title contender from the start but I think the Big 12 is going to be a pretty fun league to watch this year.

Hurricanes camp opened yesterday. Some thoughts on the team this year...

1. This is a talented but very young team. 50 of the 82-83 guys are freshman or sophomores. This last recruiting class looks like one of the very best in years but it will take a little while to gel. There are about a half dozen guys from that class that should be eventually in the NFL. Youth plus a difficult schedule means the record will be similar to last year.

2. Miami will be anchored defensively by true sophomores Anthony Chickillo (DE) and Denzel Perryman (MLB). I expect both to be All-ACC even though they are young players. DT depth is much better than recently, but there are massive question marks about the DE spot opposite Chickillo. If he goes down, it will be difficult to get pressure from the front four. SLB Ramon Buchanon is a solid player and is healthy after an ACL injury last year. The third LB spot is a question mark. The secondary will probably be lead by a true freshman this year...albeit a very special one. Expect Tracy Howard to start from Day One and enter the NFL after 3 years. Good run defender S Ray Ray Armstrong was dismissed from the team. Kacy Rodgers and Vaughn Telemaque will start at safety. This is not a great starting unit, but if true freshman Deon Bush develops quickly he could see playing time. Miami has alot of depth of CB, but it is all very young.

3. Miami's offense will revolve around its strong offensive line, featuring standouts Malcolm Bunche, Shane McDermott and Seantrel Henderson. The latter is expected to be a high NFL draft pick but has always been inconsistent and has work ethic issues. Freshman Ereck Flowers could see time. RB Mike James is the lead weapon here. He's a jackhammer, but lacked burst last year. We'll see if he has it this year. Miami's TE's are unproven. Miami lost top WRs Tommy Streeter and Travis Benjamin to the draft last year, but brought in a ton of highly regarded HS prospects and a stud JUCO transfer to compliment Rashawn Scott, Allen Hurns and Philip Dorsett. This group is young but has a ton of speed. True freshman RB Duke Johnson is the most celebrated RB prospect Miami has acquired in several years and has been compared to Clinton Portis for his speed, vision and shiftiness. He'll see the field early and often. QB Stephen Morris has a live arm arm and great mobility, but he is inconsistent as a decision maker. We'll see if another season with Jedd Fisch helps his development.

Schedule

At Boston College- W. Miami got pushed around by BC last year, physically. I doubt that happens again, with the emphasis on strength training this offseason, which has had great results so far in lifting and bench improvements. Miami has too much skill for BC, especially with the departure of Luke Kuechly to the NFL and one of their backs.

At Kansas StateL. Last year I underestimated the skill level and resiliency of Kansas State and Collin Klein. Klein showed a TON of a heart in KSU's 28-24 win at Miami and former Cane Arthur Brown had a great game as well for the Wildcats who went on to have a great season. Miami's very talented freshman and sophomores will learn a tough lesson in Manhattan.

Bethune-CookmanW. Cupcake opponent. Easy win.

At Georgia TechTossup.. Last year, defensive coordinator Mark D'Onofrio put together a masterful plan against Paul Johnson's vaunted option attack and Miami has very good speed in its front seven to stretch the option out, but the Jackets are very tough to beat in Atlanta. Game could go either way.

NC StateW. Miami should be able to put together a solid win at home against NC State.

*Notre Dame (*game played in Chicago)- LChicago is hardly a "neutral field" for a Notre Dame-Miami game, although the venue really doesnt matter. Notre Dame's depth and experience on defense will overwhelm Miami.

UNC- W. The Heels are beginning a period of decline and Miami will take them down at home. Giovanni Bernard will probably have a good game, though.

Florida StateL. The Noles are the best team on the schedule this year, even with star CB Greg Reid being recently kicked off their team. FSU is loaded defensively and should be ACC Champs. They have an outside chance to be in the national title game, although I have doubts about their coaching staff's work on game days. Miami outplayed them in a close loss in Tallahassee last year despite a huge talent disadvantage, which was a hopeful sign. However, this year's FSU team is even better and they will prevail in Miami.

Virginia Tech- Tossup. Miami played a great game in Blacksburg in last year's razor thin loss and having this game late in the season will help to get the true freshman studs some experience early on. This will be a tough test, but given that it is at home, it could go either way.

At VirginiaL. The Cavaliers return a strong team that did great work last year. Winning at Virginia will be too steep a climb to ask of Golden's young Hurricanes.

South FloridaW. This was a close game last year. I expect by this point in the season, Miami will be much better than early on due to the development of the freshman and sophomores. They should be able to hold off USF again, albeit not by alot.

At DukeW. Should be an easy win.

There is a rumor going around some message boards that former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel has passed away from a heart attack. I have not seen this at any reputable media site such as ESPN or AP or anything, but its been on a few boards.

Ohiobronco2, did you hear anything about this? I'm not a fan of sweater vest, but I hope this is a false rumor, nonetheless.
