    I did. Your conference is better overall and your defenses are a complete joke. Which was the point of my original post.

    This exchange is tempting me to post a comparison of the two conferences academics.

    No need for low blows. I kept my insult football related.

    Now that Ed's not posting on SF anymore, I don't have any contact with him, so I'd appreciate it if someone would pass the following article along to him.

    Radical plan: they could try "Winning the occasional football game." Might help.


    I mean, if they're getting blown out by the likes of William and Mary (go Tribe!), how do they think they're going to be competitive in the Sun Belt when they move?

    Yeah, I don't get it. They started a program in a saturated market, both in terms of the sheer number of programs and quantity of programs recruiting in their state, and, on top of that, they've decided to fast track their transition from 1AA to 1A. It really seems like a terrible approach to me.

    How about them Nittany Lions? Great win against Northwestern. They are emerging as the feel-good story of the year, sort of like the Oakland A's in this year's baseball season. (I mean, other than that the A's management didn't look the other way while an important member of the organization sexually assaulted children and thus get banned from postseason play. But abstracting from that.)

    I had thought PSU would lose to Northwestern for sure. Good comeback.

    In other football news, Michigan is whipping Purdue badly. Top of the 2Q. and it's 21-0.

    Man, I'm so relieved that the Longhorns scored on their first drive in answer to WVU's score.

    South Carolina looks unstoppable, and it's only the 1st quarter. 21-0 thus far.

    I expect to see Alabama and USCe in the SEC championship.I am disappointing because I wanted to see Bama play the dogs. That game was scheduled until Missouri joined the conference.:fu:


    Man, does Auburn suck this year or what.

    UT defense is looking mediocre, at best.

    Just as you say this, Texas has 3 straight tackles for a loss including a strip sack recovered for a touchdown.
