What a Loophole Looks Like

Boise's Schedule: A Comparison

As we prepare to spend the next 14 weeks listening to ESPN (et al.) talk about how brave Boise State is for scheduling two (TWO!!) BCS conference teams, I thought it'd be worth looking to see how...

'Bama Fans More Attractive to Women than Barners

1

As a general proposition, this is probably pretty obvious but now we have SCIENCE to back us up: a world-wide study found that men wearing red are more attractive to women than men in blue. Not included in the study, but probably also relevant: not smelling like cow manure tends to be a plus, too.

SEC partisans will take great glee in warning "You're gonna get hit now, boy," but based on his career to date, Masoli is immediately the most accomplished signal-caller in the conference going into the season.

Dr. Saturday on Masoli, conveniently forgetting that there's a signal-caller in the SEC who has never lost a game as a starter and might have an accomplishment that Masoli lacks.

Tennessee Titans Sue Kiffin, USC

Looks like Fisher and the Titans are more than a little irked over Kiffin's lack of decorum in hiring away Kennedy Pola days before training camp was due to start.

USC out of the AP and Might Face More NCAA Sanctions

The AP The Coaches Poll announced today that USC, on account of their sanctions, would not be eligible for the 2011 football poll. This isn't exactly news, as it is the AP's poll's policy to remove...

USC to Release Seantrel Henderson

The New Compliance Arms Race

8

We've heard nearly endless whining from USC partisans about how expecting high-risk players to receive high-quality monitoring is unfair and bad for everyone. This post from the Bylaw Blog posits a much less insane proposition: that the result of the ruling could be an arms race amongst top-tier Division I programs. It's an interesting read.

Article Claims 'Bama Ineligible for BCS Title

11

Just to head this off at the pass, the wording on the bottom of the USA Today poll listings "The AFCA prohibits coaches from voting for schools on major NCAA probation." -- is somewhat sloppily worded. That's not the text of the rule, it's a short-hand explanation of a rule. The actual rule does not refer to probation, but to post-season bans.

Clay Travis isn't concerned by Alabama's academic calendar: he's just upset that the Tide is getting to play for the title at all and can't think of any other way to express it.
