    Default College Football 2018 - minus the troll

    I thought a new thread would give a fresh start to discussions of the 2018 NCAA football season.

    I can't wait to see Bama and Texas A&M square off today.

    Now which one has the most million dollar coaches on staff? Which school has the highest graduation rate among football players?

    Of the two I mentioned? Bama has 2 coaches on the football staff that make over $1 million per year. And our graduation rate is among the best in the country.

    What the hell was Tulane thinking scheduling that game 4 weeks into the season? Shouldn't they be more concerned with doing well in the Pee Wee Conference?
    BTW, love Tulane as a school. Wish I had gone there.

    Alabama has three counting Sabin's 11 million, Locksleg and Lupoi, close to twenty million counting the whole staff, and although they do graduate football players, least according to the stats they supply to the NCAA, the majority of football players majors are "Exercise" and "Sport Science," which must be the 21st Century version of basketball weaving

    It is semi pro football, isn't even close to the tag amateurism it portrays itself as, they should be paying the players

    My mistake, I missed Lupoi.

    Your suppositions about the areas of study of the players is noted. It is wrong, but noted. As a matter of fact, in Dec of 2015, Alabama took the field with 29 graduates on the roster, including several that received their Masters Degree. We had a QB a couple of years ago that was in the final running for a Rhodes Scholarship, and a 4 year starter on the offensive line that graduated with a degree in accounting and a GPA of 4.0.

    So please take your hatred of jocks someplace else.

    Final score Alabama 45 - Texas A&M 23.

    Bama held them to 3 fewer points than they scored on Clemson. And Bama scored 17 more points against them.

    ROLL TIDE ROLL!!

    How do you know he hates jocks? Maybe he just looks down on dumb jocks who have to pursue their diplomas down in the deep south?

    He makes accusations about them not graduating. Then when told that is wrong, he makes accusations that they majored in basket weaving.

    It is just one of those guys who was picked on by jocks or whatever.
