Yeah but ESPN's suckitude in the case of college football is surpassing all those other areas and deserves its own recognition. I mean, I get why they cover the Yankees and Red Sox (for only one example) so much and as a fan of the Cardinals it doesn't bother me one bit.

Their bias towards whatever they are biased towards (pick a team/player) in all other sports doesn't negatively affect the Blue Jays or the Vikings or the Utah Jazz's 'recruiting'. Whereas every HS kid in America watches ESPN, maybe even in most cases - exclusively. It has a huge effect. And they have pushed all their chips in the middle with the SEC.

Although FOX's quest is admirable, ESPN still has an effective monopoly on CFB. Owning all ACC content, a huge chunk of SEC content, including the SEC Network starting next year, a sizeable chunk of the Big XII, the B1G and the PAC-12 and all the other 'Group of Five' leagues. And although I hate them, and I certainly loathe Urban Meyer, their disrespect towards Ohio State and the B1G in general is disgusting.

And just yesterday (among countless examples) instead of 'College Football Daily' airing on ESPNU like it always does, they had Paul "biggest SEC homer alive" Finebaum's radio show on the air in its place, which was nothing but a moanfest for why Ohio State has no business playing in the title game if they win Saturday. Because..."SEC!" It's not the specifics of the argument (hell, I might even agree, but it's irrelevant), it's the transparent agenda.

But yeah, next time I rant about this, I'll just bump the other thread. I don't want to derail the TCU/UCF update thread.

It's the title game he will probably miss out on. Even then, it's a month out and I have very little doubt that he'll magically be cleared to play.
Looks like the state's attorney decision IS coming before the title game. Apparently happening at 2 p.m. tomorrow.

He is good to go. If there were charges they wouldn't wait.

Or maybe they'll decide to continue to pursue evidence. And conveniently they find it in a month

Going back to the BCS discussion, I was being glib in responding to NSW's two cents, but in all actuality find the ranking argument frustrating. The same talking points are rehashed each week, burrowed into the ground by the same pundits usually to push a particular agenda. Surprisingly, it's all rooted in financial interest, either from broadcasters, advertisers, bowl sponsors, or the university's own athletic departments. That's just the way it is. U2DM's points about pre-BCS titles is very well-founded; I was too young to know those salad days and I know a good bunch of the folks here were too to some extent.

All that I mean to say is that outside chatter really takes away from enjoying the shit on the field. Like usual, NSW expressed it more eloquently and honestly than I could so I'll piggy back offa that.

Very surprising. All accounts point toward a press conference meaning that he's not being charged. I imagine there was pressure to quell it before the Heisman deadline.

Either way, this situation sucks and has soured what should have been a fantastic season.

Don't be so sure.
If you want a hint, take note of the fact that the betting line on the game has been taken off the board in Vegas and other outposts.

No charge for Jameis. The amount of people celebrating on my news feed is sickening.

Did you see those idiots behind his lawyer during the press conference? I know from experience ... it's not a great look.

I've been working all day and haven't had a chance to watch it. What you're saying doesn't surprise me though.

The one guy was actually standing behind Winston's attorney holding up those logo glove jawns.

Does NIUs loss really mean UCF is Fiesta Bowl bound? That's a terrible fit.

It's all about TV ratings isn't it? No reason why this team shouldn't be in Miami or NO other than that.
