Expatriate fan of Florida State football since childhood (maternal legacy). For a long while, I have only had the opportunity to see one or two games a year due to AFN and national media's anti-ACC and anti-Nole bias. I'm hoping that will change. If FSU can't win, I'll root for UCF, Ohio State, and Alabama, too, but I'll never root FOR USF or Miami for anything (except maybe out of self-interest when FSU can benefit from SOS).

Pac-12 schools likely to enjoy eye-popping revenue

2

Nutshell version: B1G = $300+ million / 12 (soon to be 14); SEC = $289M / 14; Big 12 at $198M / 10ish (half shares for new schools); PAC = $253M (less Utah, which doesn't get a full share until 2015) I'm sure that the ACC payout is comparable, however.

USA early top 25 for 2013 (FSU #6)

24

Seems to me that postseason polls do matter. But I don't see us deserving to be ranked that high. Not to be a downer, but I would have expected Clemson, with Boyd returning and its recruiting, to be higher. KState Oklahoma? TCU? OkSU? All have a shot at Big 12 dominance, yet USA Today bags them, with none getting ranked above 13 even though lowly (hah!) Texas beat the snot out of PAC standardbearer Oregon State.

I have nowhere else to voice this concern, so I'm doing it here. Can TN please change these ads to stop them from popping up OVER the login? I know this is a free site, and yes, ads need to be present, but I suspect many will be logging in less frequently and lurking more if the site is not changed so as to make it less difficult to actually GET to the login/password.

Dennis Dodd's 2012 Coach Hot Seat Ratings

16

Hot Seat Rating Key Rating What it means 0-0.5 Can't be touched 1-1.5 Very safe, change unlikely 2-2.5 Safe, but you never know 3-3.5 On the bubble, feeling pressure 4-4.5 Warm seat, better start winning 5 Hot seat! Win or be fired I don't understand why the new Arkansas coach comes in with a 5 (very hot seat), while Kevin Sumlin comes in with a 2, and a multi-year program-building coach like June Jones has even a 1.5, while Jimbo has a 1 (very 'cold' seat). Not meant to malign Jimbo. I just don't see Sumlin or Jones going anywhere any time soon, regardless of this year's results. Also of note, the ACC coaches: Randy Edsall -- 4.0 Frank Spaziani -- 4.0 Dabo Swinney -- 3.0 David Cutcliffe -- 3.5 Al Golden -- 2.5 Tom O'Brien -- 2.0 Larry Fedora -- 1.5 Jim Grobe -- 1.5 Mike London -- 1.0 Jimbo Fisher 1.0 Paul Johnson -- 1.0 Frank Beamer -- 0.5 And Florida teams: UCF's George O'Leary -- 3.5 Florida's Will Muschamp -- 2.5 USF's Skip Holtz --2.5 FAU's Carl Pelini - 2.5 FIU's Mario Cristobal -- 0.0
