I disagree that you don't have to be a good coach. Obviously getting the best high schoolers to come play for you is important, but these college coaches have to corral a group of 18-21 year old alpha males into a coherent, disciplined product on a consistent basis. That's no easy task, I don't care how much talent you can recruit.

You're gonna tell me that Saban, Petrino, Meyer, Spurrier, etc aren't good coaches? Just because they can't/haven't done it in the NFL? Hogwash.
Yeah I not saying their not great college coaches, my point was to the effort they gave on a professional level and how they handled it. The more exact point was at the ego of each(which Spurrier, Saban, Petrino are enormous to the point of ridculous) and another secondary arguement not as direct which is this ridculous idea that high level in the SEC is somehow equitable to the NFL which is absolute hogwash (if you can have success here(SEC), then you can have success on the next level). Not remotely close. Your point of different type to handle a kid to a millionare is very well taken and a very good one. You have to admire that.

The previous 3 coaches mention though were boaderline disgrace on their handling of their opportunity. Petrino to me was the worst. But with this entire arguement, really just my enjoyment of knocking the SEC fans about something while distracting from the fact Boise barely handled an ok Oregon St team

Does it count as worse when you expect it to happen?

Report: Agent tied financially to former North Carolina assistant football coach - ESPN

I hope they burn Butch Davis's cheating, lying ass over this. I cant wait to hear the penalties.

as far as boise st vs sec goes, it's football and you never really know. right now if i were betting i would take bama(even tho i effing hate bama), ark, and auburn over them, and prob take fla too, especially at home.

and on a side note am i the only one who thinks it should be against some sort of rule for them to paint their feild blue? it is so f-ing annoying you can't watch but two minutes of that crap before turning it off, it's almost as annoying as trying to read a post on es
What in the hell are you talking about? As a VT fan who goes into every season expecting maybe another 10 win season but probably no contending for a national title due to always losing against a higher ranked team and some crappy team nobody expects us to lose to, I really don't know where you get this idea from. And the majority of my fellow Tech fans feel the same way. We don't do a good job recruiting and I honestly feel even though Beamer and co. have gotten us at least 10 wins these past few seasons that we never come close to living up to the high expectations placed on us.

Of course they COULD, but they're struggling (by Texas standards) right now. I don't think they will.

OU is struggling also, barely beating AF and Cincy.

Exactly how I feel about them. This happens year after year and I really don't expect anything different.
