    How do we fix the bowls?

    I agree 100% accept this part. "If you decrease the scholarships, then you spread the talent around. Maybe Alabama's two deep isn't full of 4 and 5 stars, but 3 and 4 stars." I do believe that limiting scholarships will help spread talent around, but... I don't believe that limiting the...

    Transfer Portal

    Because it’s the system that we have and it’s already broken. It’s not good for college football that only 2, sometimes 3 schools have a legit shot at a National Championship. Paying for play and profit off image and likeness will only make the gap bigger. I don’t support this as an in amateur...

    How do we fix the bowls?

    To hell with scholarships. If we’re going to pay for play and allow for profit on image and likeness. That’s what everyone is advocating for, right? Let’s just look at college football players as junior professionals. If we’re going to do this, let’s do it right! All programs are given a...

    Transfer Portal

    UGH as much as I hate to admit it, you’re absolutely right. The college football that we all love is dead and gone. We’re talking about paying players, free agency (AKA transfer portal), bowl games have become saturated and the CFP has made them meaningless. Players opting out of not only bowl...

    Shouldn't Wolf be on there?

    1. Have you even read this thread? 2. If you want to talk gundy. Let’s a go to the 156 other threads about gundy where you do nothing but talk crap, and I will explain why your over-paying comments are completely asinine and completely ignore the facts - but this thread is about boyton. You’re...

    I guess you could call it that. Though, I’d rather be an after the fact guy than an ignore the fact guy.

    Final Ranking?

    Care to share how UT is way out in front of us? Last I checked we had a better conference record than them, though they beat us it took 4 turnovers, a roughing the kicker, 4 refs, and overtime. OU is by far the favorite but 2nd place is going to be a rat race.

    Just a reminder how most of you guys suck. The trashing you do on our coaches is pathetic. Go on, enjoy the win...

    Final Ranking?

    KSU stumbled out of the gate losing to Sunbelt, that loss was inexcusable. Then they turned around and got an elusive victory in Norman. I don't care if Rattler had 15 ints in a quarter, it is still impressive. They continued to roll until they lost their multi-year starting QB in Skylar...

    Final Ranking?

    I agree the Big12 is going to be loaded next year. I think OU is going to be a monster and a strong favorite. I think OSU, WVU, TCU, ISU, UT and maybe KSU will all be in the mix to make the CCG. I have a feeling its going to be one of those really fun, but really frustrating seasons for all of...

    Final Ranking?

    Well correct and incorrect. You’re correct in that it is highly unlikely that 4 Big 12 teams finish in the top 15. Unless I read it wrong, that has not happened since 2002 with 12 teams and split divisions. However preseason rankings are not a projection of where teams will finish, just where...

    Final Ranking?

    Going into the bowls we ranked CFP - 21 AP - 26 CP - 21 CFP doesn’t rank post season. I’d imagine we jump a half dozen teams (give or take) by grabbing a one of the few t-25 wins and there were a handful of other teams ahead of us that lost. I could see us landing 18-22 in the AP and 15-19 in...

    Knowles leaving: edit nope!

    That’s not a stretch, that’s not a reach, that’s not a leap or a bound. That’s not even a moon landing or even a Mars landing. It’s absurd to think there is any correlation. I have ready some pretty outlandish things on this board lately (Herman for OC - LOL) and this is right up there. Belima...

    How do we fix the bowls?

    Not arguing either side but one of the key reasons that players opt-out aside form avoiding injury or getting 100% before workouts is getting in “combine shape.” Which is completely different than playing shape. If you opt out that’s an extra 6-7 weeks of working with a strength and conditioning...

    Football 2021 WR Quaydarius Davis

    I guess I did say skills position and QB is a skills position. There have been a lot of transfer QBs do really well. I was just meaning WR/TE/RB

    Football 2021 WR Quaydarius Davis

    I wonder how many skills position players have transferred through the portal and made an impact at a place that is on par or better than where they left. I feel like guys like Trey Serman are the exception not the rule. It seems like most guys that utilize the transfer portal, you never hear...

    Big XII Coach Rankings

    All you guys with a hard-on for Patterson are leaving out that he had a huge drug ring involving a large group of players operating right under his nose. Gundy on the other hand recruits high caliber individuals, knows what’s going on in his program and removes the bad actors. That is another...

    Football 2021 WR Quaydarius Davis

    Wonder if he realizes he committed to the FB team not basketball.... Offers from Bama, LSU, Florida, USC amongst others and he chooses KU... Head scratcher for sure.

    Football Players Coming Back in 2021

    We’re going to have to have some people step up in the WR position and/or get some help from the portal. With Wallace, Stoner, Wolf, Woods and Chuba gone that accounted for 141/207 receptions (68%). Hopefully Johnson, Presley, and Martin have big off seasons.
