Gators: "Florida needs an indoor practice facility!"

2

The rise of indoor practice facilities around the SEC and at Florida State has created a sense of jealousy among Florida fans accustomed to having the finest of everything.

Power 5 Association Preview?

1

At the ACC, Big XII, SEC and B1G Media days, there was discussion of the Power 5 conferences forming their own separate association. If we separate into four regions (North, South, East and West), and assume :1) The ACC will envelop the remainder of the Big East ; 2) the Big XII will be divided amongst the B1G and PAC-12 conferences; and 3) Notre Dame would join a regional conference, then this how the new landscape of college football would become Northern Region - B1G Ten - Chicago, IL A. GREAT LAKES DIVISION Michigan Michigan State Ohio State Wisconsin Minnesota Illinois Northwestern Notre Dame B. GREAT PLAINS DIVISION Indiana Purdue Iowa Iowa State Nebraska Missouri Kansas Kansas State Eastern Region - ACC - Washington, D.C. A. SOUTHERN DIVISION North Carolina North Carolina State Wake Forest Duke Virginia Virginia Tech West Virginia Miami B. NORTHERN DIVISION Pittsburgh Syracuse Boston College Penn State Cincinnati Maryland Louisville Rutgers Western Region - PAC 16 or PCC - Las Vegas, NV A. PACIFIC DIVISION Washington Washington state Oregon Oregon State Stanford California UCLA USC B. ROCKIES DIVISION Arizona Arizona State Utah Oklahoma Oklahoma State Texas Texas Tech Baylor Southern Region - SEC - Atlanta, GA A. WESTERN DIVISION Alabama Arkansas Auburn Mississippi Mississippi State LSU Texas A&M Kentucky B. EASTERN DIVISION Florida Florida State Georgia Georgia Tech South Carolina Clemson Tennessee Vanderbilt ***If Notre Dame decides to remain independent, then they should play at least 3 teams from each region. A lock in "schedule" could then include Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue, Stanford, USC, and Boston College to protect their core rivals. Then have 6 free games to schedule. Then I'd replace ND in the B1G with a Colorado or Boise State? Share your thoughts people!

ESPN: Jernigan Ready for New Role as Starter

+

ESPN FSU writer David Hale's article on how Loco-Ocho is ready to take over as a starter...although he got alot of playing time in the last two season in the 2-deep rotation. With MEJ, McDaniel and Goldman, Jernigan will be the fourth five-star caliber DL on the roster.

Pitt loses its best RB as Shell announces he is transferring. Expectations were high for Shell heading into this season, as he was the leading candidate to replace Ray Graham, one of the most productive running backs in school history. Guess he heard the Warpath is coming....

Like Father, Like Son: Kelvin Taylor commits to Florida

31
Taylor's father, Fred, was an All-American at Florida in the mid-90s. Kelvin Taylor, who surpassed Emmitt Smith as the all-time leading rusher in the state of Florida this past season with 9,698 yards, said Florida is where he feels best. "They just have a great program and great coaching staff. I feel so comfortable around their coaching staff," Taylor said. "It's closer to home and they have great tradition." Gainesville may be closer to the Belle Glade than Tallahasee, but having a RB depth chart of Wilder, Freeman, and Pender likely played a role with his decision. Florida now has 8 commits for the 2013 class...7 in the ESPN 150.

Tampa Noles Shuttle to the Champ Sports Bowl in Orlando Dec. 29

+
The TBSC is happy to provide its members with the opportunity to travel directly from Tampa to the stadium for the Champs Sports Bowl. Cost will be $40 round trip ($20 for kids under 13). The bus parking in Orlando is on Colyer Street just SE of the Stadium — it’s on a neighborhood street with no sidewalks so we can not guarantee tailgating will be allowed. Please email Max at Max@tampanoles.com to let us know how many riders and which pickup location no later than Tuesday December 27 if possible. Two pick up locations: Clearwater and Tampa.

Former FSU signee Damien Jacobs de-commits Vols; headed to Hogtown

19
Jacobs blossomed into one of the better JUCO defensive tackles in the country during his time at EMCC. Florida State didn't have room for another defensive tackle, and that put Jacobs back on the market. He committed to Tennessee in July, but openly flirted with other programs during the process. In addition to Gator fans, Mississippi State fans also believed they had a shot at Jacobs. This also means Tennessee's top JUCO targets both switched commitments at the last minute. Dooley is pretty much done after this season. So get ready for the "Stoops to Tennessee" talk in 2012. We may want to pluck Justin Wilcox from this staff ASAP

West Virginia formally joins Big XII. FSU v. WV game in jeopardy?

18

ESPN is reporting WV will join the Big XII. The conference will maintain its round robin format meaning West Virginia regular season will be Texas, Texas Tech, Baylor, TCU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Kansas State in conferece with Pitt as its out of conference game. That leaves only 2 free games for the Mountaineers and FSU is slated to be one of them. Will WV keeps us on the schedule to boost its national championship hopes or opt out? If they do, FSU will then have 2 free games to schedule cupcakes which we need since the 2012 season features Clemson, Florida, Miami, Virginia Tech, and South Florida.

Oklahoma Pre-Game Parties on Gameday?

16

Does anyone know of any pregame parties going on for the Friday/Saturday before the Oklahoma game? We'll be coming off US19 from Tampa and trust me after going through "God's Country", we're going to need to some serious partying. I heard the Tennesse Strip was planning on a block party before kickoff. Is this true? Any places having a AYCD/AYCE special that Saturday? Some places in Tampa will charge $25 for buffets before Bucs game. I didn't know if Tally was having the same? Any other places? Varsity? Hooters? A.J.'s?

EA Sports NCAA Football 2012: New Expand a Conference Option

11

EA Sports has annouced its NCAA Football 12 edition will feature a new option under Custom Conference: Conference Expansion. You can expand a conference up to 16 teams in the Dynasty Mode by simply picking-and-choosing which teams you do or do not want in a particular league. ESPN had piece similar to this a while back with al the MEGA-PAC 16 discussions. From the blogs, its seems most prescreeners have created the MEGA PAC 16 in Dynast Mode (PAC 10 + Utah, Colorado, Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State) and found the results very interesting. Also, you can change Bowl Conference affliation as well. So, you can make the MWC have an automatic qualifer OR move the ACC Championship game to the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, the Orange Bowl in Miami or the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. So what will you do? Add Pitt, Syracuse, Rutgers and West Virginia to the ACC OR move FSU, Clemson, Texas A&M and Oklahoma to the SEC?

Spurrier : Pay each football player $300.00 per football game.

50
"A bunch of us coaches felt so strongly about it that we would be willing to pay it -- 70 guys, 300 bucks a game," Spurrier said. "That's only $21,000 a game. I doubt it will get passed, but as coaches in the SEC, we make all the money -- as do universities, television -- and we need to get more to our players. Spurrier, Alabama's Nick Saban, Florida's Will Muschamp, LSU's Les Miles, Mississippi's Houston Nutt, Mississippi State's Dan Mullen and Tennessee's Derek Dooley signed the proposal. This isnt a bad idea; but what happens when the next coach says "OBC only pays $300? Ill pay you $500"?. He does make some interesting points though.

ESPN's Joe Schad / Orlando Sentinel: FSU DC Mark Stoops may become next head coach at Ohio State.

63
A native of Youngstown, Ohio, Stoops is part of college football’s modern-day version of a royal coaching family. A decade ago, it was all about the Bowdens, now, the most recognized surname in coaching is Stoops. Along with Mark, brothers Bob and Mike are head coaches, leading the Oklahoma Sooners and Arizona Wildcats, respectively. Mark was on Mike’s staff before arriving in Tallahassee last fall. With his brothers already in the head-coaching ranks, it may be about time for Mark Stoops to make that step to. Again, not saying he will, if offered the Ohio State job. Just saying, these are compelling reasons for him to leave. Also, earlier today, Joe Schad reported that Mark Stoops is a more "realistic" candidate for the job because he is an Ohio native and Ohio State graduate.

Race to the Death Penalty: Former Ohio St WR says "everyone" was getting benefits.

34
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Former Ohio State wide receiver Ray Small told the school's student newspaper that he sold Big Ten championship rings and other memorabilia for cash and got special car deals as an athlete during his playing days. "We have apartments, car notes," he said. "So you got things like that and you look around and you're like, 'Well I got (four) of them, I can sell one or two and get some money to pay this rent.' " Who gets the Death Penalty first: the Auburn CHEETAH$ or the Ohio State.......well you can guess where that one was headed.

Former Gator Mike Blakely headed to Auburn

27

Regardless, Rivals.com‘s Auburn-specific website is reporting that the running back has enrolled at the university and will play for the defending national champions after sitting out this season. After satisfying NCAA transfer rules, Blakely will have four years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2012. Apparently, either Florida lifted the stipulation saying he could not transfer to a SEC school or he will pay his own way.

ESPN Post Spring ACC Review.

6
Best spring game atmosphere: Florida State. The Seminoles had a record crowd of 53,818, which was the third most nationally behind Alabama and Nebraska. The weekend featured a downtown block party with several bands, including country artist Jake Owen, and there were fireworks Friday. A barbecue cookoff contest began Saturday morning before the game, and at halftime former FSU greats played a flag football game. Post Spring ACC Rankings 1. Florida State 2. Virgnia Tech 3. North Carolina 6. Miami 9. Duke?!?!?!?!? (Cutcliffe is a great coach and its finally showing).
