Just call my team the Midnight Cowboys. Let's see if they're on anyone's radar enough to know what I'm talking about.

Apparently some people think they're gonna get an NCAA violation for that late start - which would be stoopid of course.

Re: College Football 2011 Discussion

An NCAA violation???? It's the effing NCAA who won't let them even warm up on the field if there's lightning within 6 miles of the stadium. Who's saying that??

I'm shocked they were able to finish. More storms were supposed to move in at half time but they veered off and dissipated. I expected them to cancel the game. My jaw dropped when they went ahead; TU lost its starting QB to a knee injury. Glad it wasn't Weeden. I fell asleep at half time. Got the final score this morning. Surprised there weren't more injuries.

Looking again, seems to just be the opinion of one of the CBSSports.com bloggers, so never mind. Sorry for the alarm.

Personally I'd rather they look east after A&M - Virginia Tech would be a great fit and a natural rival for my Vols. Georgia Tech's got history, but has the same problem as FSU and Clemson; no new TV markets.

If it were totally up to me and the SEC were going to 16, I'd add A&M, VTech, Georgia Tech, and... Mizzou I guess.
With Pitt and Syracuse joining the ACC, and all of its current members unanimously voting on a new $20 million exit fee, I don't think VT or anyone else from the ACC will be heading to the SEC any time soon. I think it's more likely the ACC will add two more teams (probably West Virginia and UConn/Rutgers), which will put them at 16.

Re: College Football 2011 Discussion

You're probably right, though if the SEC comes calling there's still the possibility. I'd say UConn and Rutgers if I were to guess, actually - both are Atlantic Coast schools and fit in nicely with other teams.


Also, Vols Sophomore WR Justin Hunter is out for the year with an ACL.

Re: College Football 2011 Discussion

what is up with a&m quarterbacks and stinking it up against osu?

and one thing hasn't changed, our 3rd quarters suck.

oh can anyone confirm if the sideline reporter quoted loftin as saying that a&m decided to leave a year and a half ago?

Because the team is still good, they just lost a ton of offensive weapons. And even then they only lost to Clemson by 5 points, so it's not like they were blown out or anything.

Re: College Football 2011 Discussion

I don't know if A&M really decided to leave a year and a half ago--I suspect not since the ridiculous Longhorn network wasn't yet a reality at that point. As for the ass kicking, better get used to that as an Aggie fan. It's not going to get any better against Bama, Auburn, and LSU on a yearly basis.

Christ, for someone who's remarkably polite off the field, Blackmon is really teetering on douchebaggery between the white lines. Dumb ass nearly cost us the game. Those last few minutes needn't have been so nerve wracking if he weren't anticipating showboating and had held on to the effing football. Weeden was NOT pleased with him and said so to the paper. The local play by play guys, one of them a former player, said Gundy kept it private, but he also was not very pleased with Mr. Blackmon's idiocy and had a heated chat with him after the game.

Texas A&M's now been officially accepted into the SEC. They formally join next July 1 and will begin competing after that. So, they'll finish baseball in the Big 12(-3) and start football in the SEC. The main question on my mind is: Who will they open conference play with? LSU or Arkansas to renew the old rivalries or Alabama because of the Bryant connection?

Have fun with that, A&M.

Seriously, though, I do think that's the best move for them. The Big 12 will be gone (or at least a shell of its former self) very soon, and A&M's program has been improving. They should be okay in the SEC.

So, who do you guys think will be the 14th team?

Who knows? There are a lot of rumors about teams thinking or having thought about going to the SEC, but nothing concrete. If they manage to get one of the big name ACC schools like FSU or Virginia Tech, they have a chance to truly make the ACC irrelevant.

Re: College Football 2011 Discussion

I would have said West Virginia's a good option, especially after they showed up well against LSU until the last five minutes - seriously, trailing by six and then they completely collapsed when the Tigers got some hard momentum. Real shame, because I was hoping to see LSU lose and I like the 'Eers. But apparently the SEC turned them down already...

Overall not a great weekend for CFB with Alabama crushing the Hogs and Florida destroying Kentucky.
