Why do you use Rivals?  247's Composite rankings are much more reliable

Why aren't you guys using 247 Sports' ratings yet?


Also, why aren't you on G+ yet?

 @quad77 LSU definitely did what they needed to contain him, but Florida was his first game.  Even so, here were his stats in those games

 

FU: 23/30, 173 yds passing, 0 int, 60 yds rushing, 1 rushing TD

LSU: 29/56, 276 yds passing, 3 int, 27 yds rushing

 

Other than the 3 interceptions, there's not much to complain about there...

"He also needs to refine his passing, especially downfield. One of the reasons Ryan Swope’s blistering time in the 40 surprised so many at the combine was because he spent so much time catching shorter passes underneath. Manziel couldn’t find him deep."

 

Swope averaged 12.7 ypc as a slot receiver, and Manziel hit deep TD passes all season long.  Not sure where Sherrington is coming from on this...

 @AndrewMartin Just fyi, it wasn't the Aggies that served Bevo as a steak dinner, it was the horns.  After being branded with "13-0" in 1915, since the school didn't have the money to take care of him, they horns fattened him up and served him to both teams at a banquet in 1920.  (http://goo.gl/TLszH)

 @joshpettett Yeah, "Corps" and "Go Aggies" really make me think it wasn't an Ag who did this.

Not saying it wasn't an Aggie fan (every fan base has the occasional idiot), just saying it wouldn't surprise me at all if it were a baylor fan.

I'd actually guess it was fans of baylor.  They've had a bitter hatred for A&M forever and they've  been looking at ways to get back at us for the billboard that was put up in Waco when they were threatening to sue A&M last summer.

Your ignorance is displayed with your arrogant attitude towards the trends in college football.  "Texas is best, and always will be. A&M sucks, and always will".  You're an idiot if you don't understand that every college football program goes through good and bad periods.  How's Texas been doing the last couple years?  Don't be such an ass, you flaming troll.  Wouldn't your time be better spent talking to Texas fans about the upcoming season, rather than researching A&M factoids and reading SEC blogs for any opportunity to flame?

I didn't even mention "T.U.", did I?  I'm not even one to use that term.  I was simply pointing out that the only UT that SEC fans care about is the University of Tennessee.   Though, you don't quite grasp the reasoning behind many Aggies using the term "t.u.". They use it to refer to Texas as "a Texas university", since A&M was the first university in Texas.

Not sure what you're talking about. UT will be hosting Florida in Knoxville on 9/15...

I fully support this. Here is my take on a very similar scenario that I wrote a while back (http://goo.gl/5B108):

Four 16-team super-conferences and four 8-team tier-2 conferences form, with a 12-team post-season tournament.

The super-conferences have 4 divisions and a 4-team playoff to determine the conference champion and runner-up. The tier-2 conferences have 2 divisions and a championship game to determine the conference champion.

The super-conferences (perhaps SEC, Big 12, B1G, PAC initially) send BOTH their conference champion and runner-up to the tournament.

The other four conferences (perhaps ACC, Big East, CUSA, and WAC initially) send only their conference champion to the tournament.

Every 5 or 10 years, the conferences who are allowed two entrants may change based on each conference's playoff win-percentage over that period. The 4 conferences with the best win-percentages get two entrants. There would obviously have to be a way to determine who gets it if there are tied win-percentages.

The first four games of the tournament are played at equidistant neutral sites.

The second round games are played in the BCS Bowls.

The semi-finals and championship games are rotated between the BCS bowls every year.

The conference match-ups in the tournament should be rotated each year, so you don't always have the same conference match-ups. But keep in mind that you can't have two teams from the same conference match up until possibly in the championship game.

Non-BCS bowls can pick and choose from the non-qualifying teams, in the same way as they currently do.

Here is an example of what the tournament would look like: http://goo.gl/4ZXDy
