rugman11: steamingpile: cameroncrazy1984: IAmRight: False. First of all, I like the lack of a playoff. In fact, I was fine without the BCS, back in the days of multiple champions. And FCS is not Division II.

Well, we know your handle is a lie.;

Yes because he's just arguing semantics, Div II is still just I-AA and people called it Div II for years since its a level lower than real football.

No offense to Michigan fans there....

False.  The FCS teams were in Division I until 1978, when the Division I-A teams split off.  Divisions II and III are completely separate.

Division I-AA was never called Division II because it never was Division II.


In your world yes but in everyone else's world it was Div II, I caught shiat from my cousins after talking to holy cross about going there on a partial years ago.

It was considered a step down from big name programs and I took shiat, which is why I laughed when he only got offered partial from Hillsborough community college.

Clemson, you're not doing anything to dispel the notion that there's too much money in college football, and that college football players are coddled egomaniacs with a sense of entitlement.

D2theMcV: Thought I was gonna see football. Not mass transportation.


Don't they LEAVE the stadium to get on a bus to ENTER the stadium?

How many Nobel laureates on the faculty at Clemson?

rugman11: You lost to Montana State, so it makes sense that they ended up higher since they were conference co-champions and won head-to-head.


Yeah, dammit, that was the other game where Jones got injured and missed.

The point I was initially making, anyway, is that the FCS playoff field is selected by a committee. It's not a matter of just taking the top teams and putting them in a playoff. Can't do it in a division with so many teams with so few games between them.

/then next year injuries f*cked our chances at a repeat, as basically every single top player except our QB got hurt

Seriously. If there's one place in America that demonstrates it's hate for the black man is college football. Bastards.

Reporter tells FSU coach, they'll hold the start of the game for us and this interview.  The kickoff is controlled by the ABC production truck.

ASU is pretty decent and it's a road game. Good lord that's not a fun back-to-back for a defense. Oregon then at ASU? Ugh.

Oh, yeah.  That point is absolutely correct.

And I'm not an expert on FCS football.  It's entirely possible they did get robbed.  Didn't matter in the end, though, right?

At the rate this is going, I'm going to have to change out of my houndstooth after the game before heading to a party. Somehow I don't think all the Razorback fans around here will appreciate my jokes about their 'NeverYield' hashtag.

Does Clemson know that in NCAA it's only one foot?
 
2013-10-19 08:30:13 PM

PluckYew: Not this Clemson entrance crap again!

ABC, why don't you start AFTER they're in the stadium?


What kind of retards have a tradition where they ride the bus around the stadium to run down a farking hill and grope a rock? It's like they build the locker rooms 5 miles away and have to bus there. I dont really have anything against Clemson but I hope just once someone goes down and causes a pile up that injures like ten players because this intro is so farking stupid.

Not that i'm complaining but am i the only that can never hear musburger or herbstreit during the game? It seems like abc has too many mics on the crowd noise. Doesnt seem to be an issue on cbs, fox or nbc games

IAmRight: Bschott007: I just think if they are going to have a BCS national title, they should simplify it and make it based on the W-L record and have a one and out playoff system like the NFL or any other level of football.

FCS has a selection committee as well. You have to when you have a large playoff field since it's pretty much never going to work out where the best teams have the best records and there's a perfect cutoff point between, say, 9-4 teams and 8-5 teams.


Thinking on what you said, I would agree that it would need a selection committee since that is a large playoff field.    Almost becomes like March Madness in a sense. My first thought was based on a combination of the FCS rules and the BCS rules, but even something with a 8 or 10 team playoff would be better than the current system.  I'm not sold on the FBS 4-team playoff system setup for next year.

rugman11:  I get that.  I'm the same way.  Sagarin has ND State rated 43rd right now, between Penn State and Iowa.  They are not a second-class team.

I wouldn't mind an 8-team playoff, I just think beyond that it gets a bit unwieldy.


Thanks for that, rugman11.   SteamingPile can troll as hard as he wants but the facts are these:

As you said, Sagarin has NDSU ranked #43 as of last Saturday, which places them over Vanderbilt (#48), Rutgers (#53), Duke (#71), Minnesota State (#77) and so on.   In fact NDSU ranks higher than most of the FBS teams playing today.

NDSU has won two FCS Championships and are favored for this years as well. Only Appalachian State has ever managed to do the Three-Peat, and that team beat Michigan. 

NDSU moved up to the FCS in 2004 and were eligible for the playoffs in 2008 . It says something about the team if they can go from D-II to D-I and within two years of being eligible, they make the playoffs and within 3 years of being eligible they take the championship....then take back to back championships...and are now aiming at a third.

NDSU's win over Kansas State was the fourth straight victory over an FBS team since they made the move to FCS.  The Bison are also 7-3 against FBS teams with 2-1 records against both the Big 12 and Big Ten. 

NDSU hasn't lost on the road since 2010.  

Talking about records, the Bison have a current Division I record of 88-29 and are currently 35-2 since the 2010 season.

The have had only 3 losing seasons since 1964.

But since they are an FCS team, people laugh.

ASU is a good team, but they aren't that good.  And it was Stanford, Oregon, ASU.   They should have won at least one of those.  Not all of them.

They still have UCLA and Oregon State coming up, as well as the Apple Cup, which is never a sure thing.

If they end up 5-4 in the conference again, Sark has to go.  I hear USC is looking for a new guy.

Krymson Tyde: steamingpile: Krymson Tyde: steamingpile: Krymson Tyde: IAmRight: PluckYew: They have a "National Title" it's just awarded by the BCS and not the NCAA.

And the BCS gives out WAY nicer trophies than the NCAA.

:/

/could've touched the NCAA trophy when my school won the title, but I didn't want to jinx it (it was on the field before the game for photos).
//but really, it's a little crappy trophy compared to the BCS one

I've touched one of Alabama's crystal balls in the Paul W. Bryant Museum.

I heard you put em in your mouth

Ha ha

I'm really torn now since I have to root for bama to beat the shiat out of Mizzou since they talked so much shiat the past few weeks. They got lucky to join the east in a down period, any other time in the previous decade they would have gotten their asses handed to them already.

I feel dirty cheering for bama

You may as well jump on board a winner seeing as how Richt has pulled a classic Richt this year.


I would argue except you're right and I can't provide a counterpoint.

They did seem rather quiet when I briefly checked out the game, but I've got the Badger game on my laptop, and the NLCS game on TV, so not really paying attention to ABC.

At the rate this is going, I'm going to have to change out of my houndstooth after the game before heading to a party. Somehow I don't think all the Razorback fans around here will appreciate my jokes about their 'NeverYield' hashtag.

Might be a good idea, but it would be fun not to.


Since the people at this party are an unknown to me (I'm going with someone else and don't know any of these people, and it's apparently at a tattoo/piercing studio or something strange like that), it's probably best for safety reasons.
