  1. OK, as you may know the game is being moved from FS1 to BTN because of playoff baseball having been rained out a few days ago. Why not FX, which is more widely distributed in the US than BTN? Well, on March 19 of this year, 21st Century Fox, which owned FX, FS1, and BTN, spun off the Fox network, its national cable sports networks, BTN, the news networks, MNTV, and all its local TV stations into a company called Fox Corporation. The following day, the rest of 21st Century Fox merged with Disney, which owns ABC and ESPN. Therefore, Fox Sports can no longer use FX as an overflow channel for sport event telecasts, but ESPN now can (and has done so with a UFC event that conflicted with ESPN's college football coverage last month).
  2. Freddie ain’t Ready

    If the team doesn't improve quickly Freddie might make history in more ways than one and neither of them good. 1. The Browns have never fired a coach midseason two years in a row 2. They also have never fired a coach in the middle of his first season Both could happen for the first time if Freddie is fired before the end of the season.
  3. American Cincinnati-Temple East Carolina-Navy Houston-SMU Memphis-Tulane or Tulsa (alternates each year) South Florida-UCF C-USA Charlotte-Old Dominion FAU-FIU Louisiana Tech-Southern Miss Marshall-Western Kentucky Middle Tennessee-UAB (will need protected crossovers adopted) North Texas-Rice UTEP-UTSA MAC Akron-Kent State Ball State-Northern Illinois Bowling Green-Toledo Buffalo-Eastern Michigan (would require MAC to adopt protected crossovers for all its members) Central Michigan-Western Michigan Miami (Ohio)-Ohio MWC Air Force-Colorado State Boise State-Utah State California schools/Hawaii take turns playing each other Nevada-UNLV New Mexico-Wyoming Sun Belt Appalachian State-Coastal Carolina Arkansas State-Texas State Georgia Southern-Georgia State Louisiana-ULM South Alabama-Troy Here you got a nice slate of local rivalries that could fit very well on the Thanksgiving week schedule. I think the G5 needs the same consistency as the P5 in their Thanksgiving week schedules.
  4. Week 5 Game Day Thread

    I'm an OSU fan, but I really want Nebraska to be good again like they were under Tom Osbourne. The B1G as a whole really needs that.

    my TV is on UConn-UCF now I feel this older UConn logo is much more adorable than the one they have now:
  6. Week 5 Game Day Thread

    My projected playoff field is now ND, OSU, K-State and Bama. I'd rather have no ACC team in than Clemson in again after Syracuse failed to live up to my expectations and it's not even October.
  7. GOTW | Week 5 | #18 Virginia @ #10 Notre Dame

    Notre Dame is doing well now if they can win it all they might just get into the playoff again. With Syracuse, the Northern ACC team with the most promise heading into the season out of the race I've made the decision to sacrifice the entire ACC (ND doesn't count) from my projected playoff field. In addition to ND, I have Ohio State, Kansas State and Alabama making it in.
  8. GOTW #1 | Week 4 | #7 Notre Dame @ #3 Georgia

    ND needs to get Georgia to come to South Bend the week before Thanksgiving in a future season. Let's see how Georgia fares in a colder climate.
  9. Official Notre Dame Thread

    No Northern team has ever made consecutive CFP appearances. Notre Dame still has a slim chance it looks like, but they can't afford any more mistakes.
  10. Week 4 Game Day Thread

    Case closed. SMU belongs in the Big 12.

    MSU iced their own kicker
  12. Week 3 Game Day Thread

    USC and BYU are playing now. If BYU were to join the Big 12, the only Pac school that I think BYU will commit to playing on a regular basis will be Utah; for their part, they'd be more inclined to continue the series annually if BYU was in the Big 12. BYU might occasionally play another Pac-12 school, but they would concentrate on Utah.
  13. Last night longtime rivals UNC and Wake Forest played each other in a non-conference game. If the ACC could expand in a way that permits realigning into geographic divisions, the NC schools could be together again. While some major ACC rivalries would be broken up in such a realignment, it could also create new ones - like Clemson VS. Miami, both share orange as a school color, so it could be called the "Orange Crush Bowl" and be sponsored by the soft drink of the same name (a sister product to Dr Pepper). Each year the home team would wear all-orange, and the road team all-white (right down to the helmets).

    ND has 52 on NM and it's not even Q4 yet. No wonder Davie didn't last long at ND.
