  1. Re: Rule Tweaks for 2019 Season (Targeting, OT Rules, Blindside Blocks)

    Not only was that play featured heavily in training videos the following year (it should have been a foul for unnecessary roughness but nobody was watching it apparently), but it also added a new...
  2. Question: Re: Will Bama ever return to a physical running game?

    North Dakota State still does it at the FCS level and is the primary reason they've been dominant. They develop big physical linemen on both sides so they have had a dominant defense to go with it....

    Re: QB Jayden George

    Based on what I read locally is he's a preferred walk on. Not aware of any attitude issues. He threw to a stud receiver who was recruited by all of the B1G and is going to Purdue. His RB gained over...

    Re: CFP expansion thoughts by Barry Alvarez

    What I'm saying is if you only want teams in the playoffs that have a legitimate shot to win the championship then the NBA, NHL, and NFL should only have 4-6 teams in their playoffs. NCAA basketball...

    Re: CFP expansion thoughts by Barry Alvarez

    I agree with this statement and felt this way when the BCS started. I'm a huge fan of the bowl system and hope they can keep it. It's unique and exciting. You do end up with "everyone gets a trophy"...
  6. Game Thread:  Re: NCAA BB Championship Game: Texas Tech vs. Virginia - Monday, April 8, 9:20PM(ET)

    If you want replay to absolutely get everything right you have to accept this level of technicality. It's the price you pay for using technology to officiate a game that isn't black and white. Is it...

    Re: AAF may fold

    The stipend an assistant HS coach gets is probably less than a football official makes over the course of the season and they put in a LOT more hours. It's a different story if you are going into...

    Re: Proposed Rule Changes

    I completely agree. It seems like they are more dangerous because you have bodies flying all over the field. I hear there is data that kicking plays result in more injures, but I've never seen any...

    That is an example of what will now be a foul, but it's not as obvious as others. One thing he does differently is break down and let the defender come into him more than just driving through him....

    Re: Proposed Rule Changes

    You can still block him. You just can't blow him up. Many players get concussions from these hits because their heads slam into the turf. I also had a player sever his spleen on a blind side hit. If...

    Re: Proposed Rule Changes

    Agree 100%. The argument I hear from coaches though is they need to do that to try to separate the ball from the receiver. I argue you either need to play better defense before the ball arrives or...

    Re: Proposed Rule Changes

    No offense taken. You have a valid opinion/observation. I see a runner lower his head to initiate contact into a defender (sometimes initiated with the shoulder) to gain additional yardage. If it's a...

    Re: Proposed Rule Changes

    Definitely, especially the one using the crown. That's more dangerous for the hotter than the hittee. Same with the blocker on offense that uses his crown. I think there is a valid argument for...

    Re: Proposed Rule Changes

    Spearing became one portion of targeting (initiating contact with the crown of your helmet) so I would say it's being called more than when it was just spearing.

    I've never seen an example like that but I'll take your word for it. If he's coming in with a normal wrap up tackle with his head up its extremely unlikely to result in targeting. Helmet contact...

    Re: Proposed Rule Changes

    If they aren't wrapping up on a tackle they are intentionally doing something that could result in targeting. Very rarely does a wrap up tackle result in targeting. On a runner the only way you have...

  20. Re: How would you rank the top 10 college football programs of all-time?

    Those are also schools with significantly bigger budgets in Power 5 conferences. NDSU would have to build a new stadium on their own, double their operating budget (largely coaches salaries), and...
  21. Re: How would you rank the top 10 college football programs of all-time?

    They currently play in a dome owned by the city that only seats 18,500 for football. The city doesn't need a bigger facility and not sure the state would allow the school to build another indoor...
  22. Re: How would you rank the top 10 college football programs of all-time?

    I didn't bring up NDSU and Mount Union from a standpoint of competing with those programs head to head. I agree with your comments especially if they had to play a full P5 schedule with their current...

    The biggest part of that criteria is the school recruiting them. The good schools are likely recruiting better players but it's all a crap shoot. Alabama does a great job finding the best guys and...

    Link: Re: Rivals got catfished with a fake recruit.

    Rankings are largely based on who is recruiting the athlete. If a player gets offers from Alabama they are likely to get a higher ranking. Alabama doesn't recruit them because they are 4/5 star...
  25. Re: How would you rank the top 10 college football programs of all-time?

    How about programs like Mount Union and North Dakota State that have dominated other levels? They don't compete directly with these teams but for their level they have been dominating programs.
