By the way, full disclosure, I work for a company that treats prostate cancer so I see how this disease impacts a lot of lives.

That's an excellent point. Let's spread the cancer awareness love around a little bit. If more men were aware of the importance of prostate screenings when you hit that magic age, you could potentially save a lot of lives. The pink ribbon, while a very worthy cause, is already in your face every time you turn around.
To be fair, just about anyone involved in politics (with the possible exception of Clinton) is going to have at least half the country against them. Not just for ideological reasons but because politicians (and their staff members) have about as much credibility as the love child of a used car salesman and a personal injury lawyer. I agree though that this pick is likely designed to add "gravitas" to the committee and nothing more. I don't know how difficult it would be to ensure appropriate regional and professional representation but defining rules so that everyone is given a fair shake sounds like a major pain in the rear. Hopefully, this is just the next evolutionary step towards a FCS style playoff system.

Not Spurrier but the defensive assistants shouldn't be buying any green bananas if it were up to fringe section of their fanbase. You'll find this everywhere there's been success: UF, Bama, Auburn, LSU. Heck, people in Baton Rouge were trying to run Miles out if town on a rail one season removed from a national title.
Granted, I haven't been following this story closely but I can't imagine why anyone would make out Herbstreit and Musberger to be the goofballs in this situation. To me, Eminem just comes across as a disinterested and possibly stoned idiot.

Hate to break it to you but every program that experiences consistent success has irrational expectations. Just look at the recent behavior of SC fans after nearly hundred years of general mediocrity.

I think what you've listed are all contributing factors but there also seems to be something of a malaise surrounding the Gator fanbase currently. We saw it in earnest in their BCS bowl against Louisville and it still seems to be hanging around. I'm not sure if it's the lack of a consistent offense or if there's something about Muschamp that not everyone is buying yet but something is going on. It could also just be a hangover from the recent golden era of Tebow and Meyer.

Happened to catch a new house flipping show on HGTV recently and lo and behold, the head contractor was none other than Mr. Robert Van Winkle himself. Apparently, he does good work.
At his current rate, in ten years, Manziel's TV appearances may be limited to episodes of Cops.

Wasn't it Clowney who personally threatened to seriously injure Zach Mettenburg before the LSU / SC game last year? If he was grinning then, it was probably a scary one.

On second thought, I might also flip-flop Muschamp and Franklin. I just think that you've got to give extra bonus points for what he's done at Vandy. Even with an 11 win season, no one knows yet if Muschamp can field a quality offense.

I would generally agree with this list with the possible exception of Pinkel. Yes, he brought Mizzou back to respectability and yes, he's had some nice seasons. However, his body of work is predicated on competing in a very weak Big 12 North division and his squad often looked like they just didn't know how to adapt to playing bigger, stronger, faster defenses last year. I think he deserves more time to get the ship righted but should be a couple slots down farther on the list.
When have you ever know Spurrier to drop anything just because people disagree with him? He rarely follows what you might consider to be conventional discourse.

Haven't noticed Spurrier talking strength of schedule this year. How convenient.
I'm with you on every one except for #5. At this point, I'm simply not going to pick against the SEC until after the streak is over. Also, I think the relative weakness of the B1G schedule will work against OSU come crunch time. He may be running an SEC style program but his squad won't be toughened by playing an SEC caliber slate of games.

When you have the Heisman trophy winner and most electric player in football, it tends to skew the data. We'll have a better idea of A&M's scheme next year.

Ironically, he's asking for statistical evidence to back up the claim for increased injuries but he's framing his purely speculative opinion of SEC defenses vs. B12 offenses as "just a fact".
