The 2019 College Football Thread

Thought this article would be a good starting point to kick off the CFB thread:

http://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaa...LK5?ocid=ientp

It's an excerpt from a new book about Jim Harbaugh and Michigan and how their unwillingness to pay players on the side puts them at a disadvantage when recruiting.

As a Tech fan it made me curious if they would do some shit like this too, I feel like Frank Beamer would never have done anything like this but who knows now. Hard to compete when the system is stacked against you.

There's some good bits in that article about Jeff George and how entitled he was, but I thought this bit about ways CFB programs skirt the rules was interesting:

Quote:
Mauti and I shared the stories we'd heard about coaches channeling money through churches, a practice that few Southern politicians or reporters would dare investigate; offering jobs to the parents in the city or county, not the school; giving recruits credit cards in someone else's name, or cases of casino chips to cash in; and two relatively new tricks, having a booster buy the family's home for far more than market value, and telling players to take their beat-up junkers into a Mercedes dealership, where they receive a high-end "loaner car" while they wait for a replacement part -- which could take years, it turns out.
Anyways, this bit is a very good read and highly recommended. I'm probably gonna pick the book up once it ends up at my local library too.

Between FSU and the Skins, this football season is just off to a terrible fucking start.

Re: The 2019 College Football Thread

Im sold...hire this guy as the next head coach

https://sports.yahoo.com/former-alab...143743083.html

"Nick Saban really likes telling 'deez' kind of jokes, according to ex-Alabama RB Josh Jacobs"


Yes, one of the greatest college football coaches of all time can have sense of humor that resembles a middle schooler’s.

“So one day I caught like five passes in a row,” Jacobs told Patrick after he revealed the kind of jokes that Saban likes to tell. “He was like ‘Hey Josh, if you wanna hold all the ball, hold these.’ I said ‘What coach?’ I sat there for a second, like, did he really just say that?”

Patrick was flabbergasted.

“Yeah, I was like coach, I hadn’t heard that since middle school,” Jacobs said.

Re: The 2019 College Football Thread

So after 3 weeks, anyone got a team other than Clemson and Bama in the title game once again? Who's your other 2 getting in at this point?

College football has gotten pretty stale...Oklahoma, LSU are my four.

Would you hire Dabo for the Skins? I would, but he needs to bring his coaches.

As a FSU fan, I'd want the Skins to hire him, just to get him away from Clemson.

Oh hell yeah I'd hire him yesterday! He single handedly restored that program from pretty much the ground up. I think he's got the Joe Gibbs "it" factor, just much more enthusiastic. I don't see him going pro, the better possibility is Alabama throwing the bank at him whenever Saban leaves, especially since he's an alumni.

I am the biggest LSU fan on the planet which is funny since my undergrad is from UF, but they have the talent to make the playoff but this 8 year losing streak to Bama is getting on my last nerves

Shameless self-promotion. It is what it is.
