Whatever. The recruits will still learn the most important lessons provided by amateurism: personal integrity, being true to your word, working towards a goal as a team, and finishing what you start.

But if that player had signed with Tech, and wanted to transfer after Coach bails on him, he'd have to sit out a year. Because, as the NCAA puts it on their website:

"The year-in-residence is required to help student-athletes adjust to their new school and ensure that their transfer was motivated by academics as well as athletics."

BWAHAHAHAHAHA.

College football is the epitome of sleaze. Sleazy coaches. Sleazy schools. A sleazy post-season run by corrupt bowl organizations. Pieces of shiat like Tuberville can get up and leave whenever they want, but before that they sell naive players on commitment, then leave in the middle of the night. But if those "student-athletes" want to transfer, they have to deal with NCAA transfer restrictions. What a load of shiat. And just for once, I want to see one school have the balls to hold a coach to a contract.

THIS. All of it. When Tuberville can pull that stunt, when schools can jump conferences, when ADs can dump turnaround coaches, and all any of them has to do is pay a financial penalty, it teaches the young athletes that all they need do is come up with enough money and it'll buy them out of any ethical obligation.

When I first moved to Lubbock (from Houston) I hated the place. Mud rain, thunder snows and you had to drive 20 miles to buy beer. I really like it now. Good live music scene, decent night life, a damn fine universtiy and easy to get around. Not a lot of scenery but whatever.

I'd like to see a revival of the Tornado Jam albeit on a (much) larger scale. If there's one thing there's plant of it's land...

If any Techsans are reading this, that site has a great history of the Lubbock music scene. The producer of this album was best man at my wedding in 1986. The release party at Bash Riprocks was hilarious. Willis fell off is stool after the second or third song. Paper rustling and a bottle of JB...Goddamn we had fun.

It's a giant chain of dominoes both in the coaching field and the recruiting field.

Sure there's the odd coach or recruit who would rather stay at their smallish D3/D1 school then move up to a "better" program but for the most part everyone moves up when they can. It basically is what it is - we can complain how sleazy it is but its not like its some giant secret.

And my guess is the head coach wasn't even eating with them, usually its just their position coaches with them, the head coach has to bounce back and forth between all of the recruits.

I agree with everything you said but let's not lose perspective here. Those transferring student-athletes are for the most part going to college for free. Many of them wouldn't be at that University or any one close to it academically if not for their ability to play a sport. Acceptance to a good university and free tuition because I can throw a ball? Not such a bad deal.

I'm not going to cry about how a kid who got in and attended a university for free didn't get to follow his coach or switch in the middle of his college education. That's pretty low on my list of "to cares"

Totally understandable, but it still is ridiculous for what it is.

Keep in mind that while the vast majority of student-athletes "...go pro in something in other than sports" (to borrow an annoying NCAA commercial advert tagline), a good handful certainly think they have an opportunity to play in, say, the NFL in a few years. Certain coaches who instill certain schemes and gameplans will absolutely prepare certain positions to be more or less ready for professional football, so it certainly isn't as simple as like "Wahh, me and [Coach X who recruited me but is now leaving] just really get along".

Yeah I know, I just don't care. The goal of a University is not, nor should it be to get people into the NFL. I do agree, the you have to wait a year to play rule is incredibly stupid. But its really tough to hear complaints about kids who don't deserve to be in college in the first place, let alone go there for free.

The goal of college/university - for everyone - is to learn skills and trades that will help you earn a living. Whether it's particle accelerators or zone blitzes, why does it matter to you how someone uses their skill?

Deserve? They are in a job training program that statistically will bring in more Alumni dollars than any other major. The only real silly bit is that we don't just call a professional sports track a major, and treat the cash that gets thrown around by agents the same way we'd treat a paid business internship.

This is true and has been for millenia. If they don't know it by the time they're in college, well, consider it a free class.

/no, literally, if they're in danger of being academically ineligible, call that a class, give them an "A" and keep them on the team
 
2012-12-12 03:14:39 PM
I understand everyone thinking the "sit out a season for transfers" is dumb but keep in mind that without this kids would jump teams WAY more often than coaches (or schools moving conferences) just to be on a winner or for other perks legal or (mostly) otherwise. If you truly hate all the moving around then be happy this rule is in place even if it is a bit hypocritical on the NCAA's part.

Imagine a college football landscape where coaches can recruit from other FBS teams the way the NFL does with free agents right now. Sound like fun?

In TFA, the subject of the article talks about how his "style of play" might not mesh with the new coaching staff.

Serious question for you farkers who played more football than I did: Do centers really have a style of play? With skill positions, sure, I can see "style" potentially being a problem; with linemen not so much. Am I wrong?

Meh lineman can be somewhat specialized. Might excel at pass blocking or run blocking in a certain scheme, while being weaker in other areas, say pulling or leading out on screen passes.

Just as a for example, depending on the scheme some coaches might prefer smaller (relatively) lineman who pass block well and are quick enough to lead screens, say some place like Oregon. A different coach with a run based offense might prefer bigger road grader type lineman without as much importance placed on whether they are quick enough to lead a screen. Wisconsin for example or Nebraska back in the day.

That being said, if the guy is good it is unlikely he couldn't play in either style under either coach. Generally what "style of play" means I think, is there are two guys ahead of me on the depth chart and I'd rather play somewhere I'll get on the field right away.

Sure centers have a style of play. To give a very basic, overly simple example, the line at Wisconsin is going to block for a power running scheme, while the line at Oklahoma State is going to do a lot more pass blocking.

It gets more complicated when you start factoring in zone blocking, and tempo, but there are absolutely line styles.

The line is more important than any skill position player, I don't care if you do have the greatest WR or RB to ever play, if you have a shiat line that can't block to their strengths then they look terrible.

The practical "goal" of attending college is to develop skills and knowledge that can be put to use (overwhelmingly, in the work-a-day world*); I wasn't speaking of the philosophy behind "higher education" as a concept.

Exactly! As an Ole Miss alumni that was there when he abandoned us, I am stunned every time I hear someone say, "Oh my goodness, Tuberville just abandoned us!" Well, color me wondering if you missed how your organization hired him in the first place! Haven't you watched how this guy operates? He's a sleeze. He has no sense of loyalty to anything other than the almighty dollar.

As a friend of mine once said, "If she'll cheat on her boyfriend WITH you, she'll cheat on you when YOU are her boyfriend."

"carry me out of here in a pine box"... said Tuberville. Right. More like, "OOooooOOOOooo more money! *dash*"

I'm not. As was said down the thread, those footballers bring in money to the University, most importantly alumni donations. That drives down tuition for the rest of the kids. Same goes for the kids of huge donors. People like to whine about special treatment admissions for donors kids, too farking bad, that's the cost of a University opening its doors.

There is a really stupid rule saying kids cannot play football for a year if they transfer schools. Considering they got into a University that would have denied someone with equivalent say chess playing ability, or rugby playing ability, and on top of that, let them attend free, I'm having a really tough time giving a shiat about the stupid rule. That's what I'm saying.

carej: I'm not questioning the importance of the line, just wondering if there's really anything to the claim of potentially incompatible styles really being relevant for linemen.


That really depends on which level you played and the style of offense you played. If its straight ahead running with maybe a screen pass thrown in once in a while then you will never do much other than block straight ahead one on one. When we got to high school our playbook went from being around 10-15 pages to over 200 pages with everything being broken down by blocking assignments/lanes/pulls, in the lowest classes or simple offenses the center just stays in one spot 99.9% of plays but once you get advanced play calls the center will sometimes have different assignments or even pull to one side.

It isn't about how much my school sucks, man. Ole Miss isn't the promised land. So, sorry - not to burst your bubble, but that troll really won't work on me.

But I don't care how much your team "sucks" - or how bad the program is, you don't make statements about how much you love working there and that they'll have to "carry me out of here in a pine box" about how dedicated you are to the program - then leave the next day. Oh wait. It was two days. Two days. And we still had games left when he bailed. How CLASSY!
