So, after repeatedly complaining about how weak the SEC is in bb, you now want to defend the coaches who make it what it is? How smart is that?
If the writing on this site deteriorates to the point that few read it, should we be loyal because you are nice people? Besides, Pearl proves that you don't keep your job if you win and cheat, so why the rant?
If they are afraid of being on the hot seat, they should never enter the kitchen. But with millions dangling in front of them, who will say NO? Are you crying for multi-millionaires?
Do you think there aren't 1000 great coaches in the US who also have good character?
Don't you realize that times have changed? Maybe < .600 was once acceptable, and maybe a journalist once could only write for a newspaper, and maybe an actor at one time did not have to speak. The current generation is not allowed to have different expectations? CM needs to put that in his pipe.

Feel really bad for UGA. They have had 5 years worth of bad luck in one.

UT was good under Fulmer only when UA-trained David Cutcliff was OC. UT is making progress now that UA-trained AD Dave Hart is captain on Rocky Top. Still, 100%? I'm skeptical that every football player -- especially football players -- made an instant turn-around. Some had done little to nothing since arriving.

Many despised the current system -- but do you think that this committee won't have its own prejudices? Do you really believe that 'SEC fatigue' won't affect votes? Often getting what you asked for leads to bitter disappointment.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on With The Playoff Selection Panel Set There’s Only 1 Question: How Do They View The SEC?
The truth has recently emerged after years of cover-up designed to make a martyr of Matthew Shepherd. Stephen Jimenez intended to write a sympathetic screen play, but after 13 years of investigation he wrote a book saying it was all wrong.
"Aaron McKinney (one of the murderers) had been a male hustler, that he was familiar with gay guys in gay bars.” "He was pretty well-dressed, had a wallet full of money,” McKinney told ABC’s 20/20 of meeting Shepard at a bar. “All I wanted to do was beat him up and rob him … Seemed like a good idea at the time.”

Fullmer was successful ONLY when he had David Cutcliff as his OC (but he grabs all the credit), and when he wasn't sweeping around Alabama's back door for dirt. Now we know that he had plenty in his own program. Remember too how he hid from a subpoena to avoid telling the truth. Karma strikes.

Fulmer was too busy sweeping for dirt at Alabama's back door to monitor his own. He's reaped what he sowed.

Disagree, because this will solve nothing. A player who gets $100k from his U will still take $5k more on the side. So all you're doing is changing the starting point from $0 cash to something higher. The value of an all expenses paid education (if it's taken advantage of) along with room and board and tutoring and lots of other perks is in the hundreds of thousands even if it's not in the athlete's hands, a good thing. Imagine what other trouble a lot of them would get in if their pockets were flush with money -- more drunkenness, drugs, gambling, race cars.... What would you do when it was time to pay the tuition but the star blew all his pay already? We already see that a great number of these kids do not have the maturity to handle what they have. Giving them cash will only enable them to be more self-destructive and irresponsible. Four years later they should have more discernment and self-discipline (emphasis on 'should', and most do.)
Then there's poor Adrian Foster -- had to choose between taking the cash and eating or paying the rent. Of course had he stayed in the athletic dorm and eaten with the rest, it wouldn't be a problem, would it?

If schools lose money due to penalties (eg bowl revenue), they should sue everyone involved who caused it: coaches, former players, boosters, AGENTS. I think a couple multi-million dollar verdicts would stop the nonsense.

If Florida didn't want to be there, why did it accept? Enough SEC money came in to easily cover the tickets. The bowls have to cover their expenses too, the reason for the allotments.

I don't buy it. How about a comparison of SEC coaches' salaries with those of other conferences? Take Butler (12-4, rpi 14): Brad Stephens made $1.2 million in 2011; Anthony Grant $1.9 mil. So pay Grant a mill more and he becomes a better coach? By your own measure this doesn't compute.
