I had the same thoughts that the study would have to look at the injuries sustained by defenses that play aginst up-tempo offenses.  Common sense tells me that the defense should have appropriate time to at least line up properly.

Being retired Military I appreciate Urban’s comments.Those that look for blame when an individual fails obviously never served in the military or in any type authoritative Management position.I have been in the position to be the father figure to numerous young folks.I have given 2 or 3 chances to young people who reached E-9, the highest enlisted rank in the military.If I had been quick to give up on them, which would have been irresponsible, it could have ruined their life.An administrative discharge would have followed these folks for the rest of their life.Now some I couldn’t save and unfortunately put them out of the military, but it certainly wasn’t from a lack of trying. So, when your make uneducated remarks it just shows your ignorance.Throwing someone of the team (quitting on them) is actually the easy way out if you are not a leader.

As someone raised Catholic I don't find the comments humorous.  As stated in this thread, if Catholic was substituted with Muslim, people would be protesting the Ohio State campus right now.In the recording, the SEC learning to read and write comment was in response to a question which was edited out.I would be interested in what the question was.Might have the individual asked what would the SEC think if they knew we were talking to Vandy?If so, would ESPN have a right to sue the BIG Ten for tortuous interference considering the investments in the SEC Network?

Will Muchamp may not want to hear that the loss to Louisville ruined the Gators’ season but he will.  When your team comes into a game unmotivated and commits excessive penalties that is a Head Coach issue/concern.

 

How many times did we have to hear during the game that Driskel wasn't reading the defense and just throwing the ball where he planned to.  That is either a OC problem or Driskel isn't the right QB.

 

There are still some issues at UF we need to fix.

John,

 

I saw a short article discussing over signing.  Even though the SEC passed a rule for a max of 25, a team can go past 25 using a loophole that allows the additional recruits to sign early.  Can you explain how the early signing process works and how it affects the overall scholarships?

John these numbers don’t seem correct. or I am missing something  “We’ve been told by an expert source on media rights from within the college sports industry that SEC schools will most likely bring in $30-35 million per year once the new Sugar Bowl partnership, college football playoff, SEC Network, and CBS and ESPN contract renegotiations are finalized.  This past year, the average payout for the league’s schools was $20.1 million”.

 

UF gets:

-          CBS and ESPN $20.1M

-          TIER 3 $10M

-          football playoff (would get anyway) $91M/14=$6.5M

-          Sugar Bowl partnership (would get anyway) $40M/14=$2.85M

-          Total $39.45M

 

 I assume in the numbers provided to John that all schools roll their Tier 3 rights into the SEC network.   Doesn’t sound like the SEC network is very lucrative.

This is an interesting idea I have also been considering.

 

What if the SEC partnered with the departing Big East Catholic schools?  Also, if they can retain the Big East name then the league has instant recognition.  The SEC network would then have a presence in Chicago, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, New York, New Jersey, DC and Rhode Island.  If this new conference were to add Dayton, Xavier and Butler then the Ohio and Indiana markets are included.  Their men’s soccer and Lacrosse teams could enable the SEC to sanction these sports which would provide additional content for the network.  With the assumption of adding UNC, Duke and UVA along with Georgetown the SEC could be a dominant men’s lacrosse league.

 

This could also be used a selling point to UNC, Duke and UVA for their Olympic sports.   Providence, Villanova and Georgetown have woman’s field hockey so this arrangement would also provide a home for that sport.

 

With all above said, I think the Big East basketball would have to be a totally autonomous entity for basketball since the football integration is why they left the Big East.  An agreement could be put in place for the Big East to play at least two SEC basketball games which would be shown on the SEC network.

This arrangement could allow these schools to make significantly more money than in the past while creating a win-win for both parties.
