    ESPN SUCKS

    Alabama has one this weekend.
  2. Tulsa has neither standing, tradition, success nor respect. Its a school unwilling to stake its own claim so its happy being a parasite. And what OSU signed was an 8 yr deal where they will have home field advantage every year. I am personally familiar with such arrangements.
  3. In 2000, when TCU was making their 1st BCS run, they rolled into San Jose a double digit favorite, with 6 wins by 3 TDs or more....and limped out with a 3 pt loss. To this day, in some quarters, they are referred to as SJfSU. Shit can happen.
  4. Maybe its because you did the latter so poorly that it comes off like the former. Something to consider on your next woolly mammoth hunt with Litigates With Ambulances. shocking revelation.

    Look on the bright side. You'll have all day to go snipe hunting...
  6. Never mind that there is NO proposed expansion....I think he really believes there's an argument to be made.
  7. Aresco says a lot of things. He also said this: If the waiver request is denied, however, Aresco told reporters before Saturday's game between Memphis and Temple that the AAC would have to consider expansion due to the importance of holding a football championship game moving forward. He also said this - which will never happen, cuz all the Power 5 schools - the ones who created the new rules - will vote against it. “If we do get it, we would move quickly towards trying to get legislation permanently to do what we need to do, which is play at 11 teams and still maintain an eight-game conference schedule,” Aresco said. We'll see. The original rule. No waivers needed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pennsylvania_State_Athletic_Conference#Role_in_Division_I_conference_realignment Role in Division I conference realignment[edit] The PSAC played a little-known but nonetheless significant role in the history of NCAA Division I conference realignment. In 1986, the conference was seeking a way out of a football scheduling conundrum. The PSAC had 14 members at the time, and had been split into divisions for decades. One of the methods it historically used to determine a football champion involved a championship game between the winners of its two divisions. However, due to NCAA limits on regular-season games, every PSAC team had to leave a schedule spot open, with only the two division winners getting to play all of their allowed regular-season games. Then-conference commissioner Tod Eberle asked Dick Yoder, then athletic director at West Chester and member of the Division II council, to draft NCAA legislation that would allow the PSAC to play a conference title game that would be exempt from regular-season limits. The initial draft required that a qualifying league have 14 members and play a round-robin schedule within each division; only the PSAC then qualified.[10] Before Yoder formally introduced the proposal, he was approached by the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association, which was interested in co-sponsoring the legislation because it was also split into football divisions and wanted the option of a championship game. Since the CIAA then had 12 members, Yoder changed the legislation to require 12 members instead of 14. Although at the time all NCAA legislation had to be approved by the entire membership, regardless of divisional alignment, the proposal passed with little notice. It was generally seen as a non-issue by Division I-A (now FBS) schools since no conference in that group then had more than 10 members. While the PSAC planned to stage its first exempt title game in 1988, it decided against doing so at that time because the D-II playoffs expanded from 8 to 16 teams that season, and it feared that the result of a title game could cost the league a playoff berth. The new NCAA rule would not see its first use until the Southeastern Conference took advantage of it by expanding to 12 members in 1991 and launching a title game the following year. In 2014, Sports Illustrated writer Andy Staples said that the rule "helped dictate the terms of conference realignment for more than 20 years."[10]
  8. They can swear all they want. They never got one because they never needed one. When they swapped Temple and UMass, they had they same schedule. They always had 12 or more, and they always played round robin within the division - even in years where they had 13, some years they didnt even play an equal number of conference games, but they did play a round robin within the division.
  9. Most waivers? No one has ever gotten one for this before.
  10. They may get it for one year, just because of timing, otherwise the rule becomes useless. Because the specific restrictions were designed to prevent exactly what the AAC wants to do.
  11. And would have left Tulsa where they belong. He likes to leave that part out for some reason.
  12. I mean, seriously...check out sometime how Tulsa got that moronic nickname. It's some galaxy level idiocy.
