Whiffing? Luck was never an option. The Redskins gave up way too much for RG III. When you weigh the options of Tannehill for a first round pick at #8 or Griffin III for three 1st rounders and a second, Tannehill is a much better choice.
Don't get me wrong, I think Griffin III is the better prospect but Tannehill is the better value. I believe Tannehill can be a great quarterback in the NFL and has all the tools necessary to be a franchise guy. I am glad the Dolphins didn't give up 3 first rounders and a second for RG III and instead took Tannehill even at #8. Add in the fact that Sherman knows him better than anyone else, and I feel good about him over all the other guys.
We couldn't afford to pay Manning 19 million a season even if he wanted to sign with us and he has 1 or 2 years left at most.
Offering Flynn what they thought he was worth instead of overpaying is not a whiff. Philbin should know better than anyone else what he was worth. I am comfortable with his decision not to overpay for Flynn. I don't see how any of those can be considered whiffs.
he's going to be there DE someone like Ellis interesting stuff I know a lot of people thought he would be a OLB anyway jets lost
Miami Dolphins, Miami Heat , Virginia Tech

If we didn't need a QB and we took Quinton at 8 with Melvin Ingram and Hightower still on the board, I'd be very disappointed.
Hope you're ready to watch two SEC schools contend for the title every single year and have even more of a death grip on college football.
I didn't say Coples struggled. I said he disappeared. There's a difference. Coples takes plays off he's lazy. He's phenomenal but he does have somewhat of a poor work ethic. If he's relaxing in the ACC where there's less talent, how does he react in the NFL?
And I have no idea what you're talking about with the NCAA taking away title contenders and....what?! Made zero sense.
Holmes only played 12 games in 2010 don't forget, his #s were down, the O was down in 2011 but he still made big plays and scored a ton of TDs. bess has 11 career TDs, Holmes has 14 the last 2 years alone
Coples was in a unique situation b/c the NCAA destroyed the heels program(while allowing SEC programs to cheat every year)
I knew you'd be back in here Monday morning.
Like punching a time clock.
8 or 16 team playoff?
Youre a smart dude, break this down for us. Go beyond football. Explain how this works from a financial and University standpoint. Take into account that almost every BCS athletic department operates in the red. Now figure out how to get STUDENT-athletes to miss more class time. This isn't a 12 man basketball roster. Figure out how you're going to pay airfare for 60+ roster players, the band, cheerleaders, coaches, trainers, hotels, transportation and meals.
Dollar amounts are beginning to pile up aren't they. It's a bit tougher to accomplish outside of just go play some football.
1 tough games to get to a national title? Been trying to tell you that Boise State didn't deserve a shot lol. Alabama is a different story.
Either way, Coples is lazy and takes plays off in the ACC. I still don't know what you were referring to with national title contenders. I assume you weren't talking about the Tarheels since they can't even manage to beat my lousy Hurricanes.
an 8 team Tourney is 3 weeks, 16 is 4 weeks. Most classes are done by early Dec and resume mid January. That's when they Tourney should take place.
The NCAA flies the teams out, it's part of the billions they'd be making w/ such a Tourney. In the NCAA BB tourney the schools don't pay for the travel and accomodations.
'Bama won one tough game and LOST at HOME to one of the few tough teams they played, didn't make their conf title game yet still played for the title. only in CFB.
UNC would have been a legit title contender in 2010 before all the suspensions.
Julius Peppers was supposedly lazy at Carolina too.
So you're making 18 year-old kids play an additional four weeks which is more wear and tear on young bodies. I'm sure they're physically ready for that. And I'm sure you'll get a "true" champ from a system that creates more injuries at critical moments. This is working out swimmingly.
So you have to win your conference title in order to play for a national title? Oklahoma State was more "deserving?" They lost games that WEREN'T tough. What a fraud they were. Alabama was te best team in the country and they were better than LSU when LSU beat them. Alabama missed five field goals in that game. That practically never happens. If you HAVE to win your conference in order to play for a national title then you should have to win your division to make the playoffs and not back in with help from other teams right?
North Carolina would have struggled to win the ACC in 2010. The ACC doesn't have any good times. And by some miracle of whatever God there might be does UNC get to a national title, they would have been throttled by the SEC.
When this playoff happens and two and three teams from the SEC are in that playoff, I'd better not hear anyone's whining about how it's not fair. The SEC is bigger, badder and better than everyone else in college football. One loss teams from the SEC should get in over undefeated teams from the Big 12 who play NO ONE every year. Conferences outside the SEC are TRASH. The SEC's fourth best team would dickhole stomp their way to an ACC title with little effort. That's why Alabama gets in the title game.
