I was not impressed with Tucker at CU.  But I have to admit I was not watching it all that closely.  Maybe there were things happening that were not making it to the surface yet.

No coach with feet of clay.
No takers?

Two names that have also surfaced are Robert Saleh and Pat Shurmer. Saleh makes no sense for him or us. He's clearly on track for an NFL HC job. Shurmer is an alum, but has been unsuccessful as an NFL HC. Nards is apparently out.

I have someone I can send you.  He has "solid" head coaching experience.  I might even pay for the flight out.

A Golden Era of Spartan Football comes to a close.  He looked like he was getting tired.

Saban looks tired to me also.  I would not be surprised if he retired end of next year if they miss out on the final four again.

Clearly you are not a stoic.
I think of myself as being sort of like Dennis the Constitutional Peasant. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses not some farcical aquatic ceremony.

The first movie I recall seeing at the theater when my stomach actually hurt from laughing so much. But I think it was more like "not because some watery tart threw a sword at you."

So again...you see no difference between Marcus Aurelius and some other emperor like Caligula... for lack of a worse example?


Did one just have a better publicist?

I think monarchies are inherently bot benevolent.

Marcus Aurelius  v Caligula

You obviously don't believe in benevolent monarchies.

I assume that is a rhetorical question?

In any case, since the answer was yes, the reason for the down turn in ratings on NY6 games is simply because they were "not" all on New Year's Day?  And everyone still seems to be learning that lesson?

Overall, the television audience for New Year’s Six games were down 4% over last year for ESPN

Does this include the "play off" games that were not held on New year's day?

I agree that it is good to see some turnover at the top.  It was getting pretty boring for all the rest of us when only two teams could win.


...well, three if you count Michigan State, of course.

I turned on the TV to see the refs call face mask...not paying attention to the fact that the only reason the LSU defender could only get one hand out on the attempted tackle was because he was the recipient of a wrap around hold at the time.   Pretty selective penalty call there.

Kids can leave the portal and the school can take them back.

Thanks

I know this is a new thing but does this actually happen often?

Would a player check with the staff first, see if they would be welcome back?

USC has had players return to the team after not having luck in the portal.  They also had a player leave for another team and then later come back.

What time is the game tonight?  I like Ed O and I hope they can change the narrative of the past several years by dialing one up.  I might turn it on later and watch some of it.  But I'm not going to make a night of it.    My daughter has dance until 6:45 PST and I'm going to work until I need to pick her up.  College ball has lost some of its luster to me with the transfer portal and kids not playing in bowls etc.  This is why I stopped watching the NFL 15 or so years ago.
I suspect a USC revival of fortunes would get you excited again. 😀
As to your earlier complaint about the lack of civility on message boards. I am moving on to a Big Ten Board where I will be the moderator. The platform is solid and is backed down  by strict anti/flaming guidelines.
Fight On!

Good Luck Jim
