NCAA Bowl Bans are Hurting the NCAA

Are NCAA Bowl Bans Hurting the NCAA? Grant it!  The NCAA needs some enforcement power over college sports!  After all, it wouldn’t be much of a governing body if it didn’t. The NCAA has been using bowl bans since 1953 as a sanctions tool.  To be more explicit, bowl bans have been a means by which the NCAA punishes major college institutions. But, if you think about it, who does it really hurt? Thanks to Football Geography.com, I can show you the history of NCAA Bowl Bans: What is the real purpose here?  According to Webster, sanction means: the detriment, loss of reward, or coercive intervention annexed to a violation of a law as a means of enforcing the law. Wow!  That’s pretty heavy.  But, if you follow major college football, wouldn’t you agree that bowl bans by the NCAA are designed to cause “loss of reward” to a school; and…

Who is the Best Team in College Football? Vote Here!!

The BCS standings will be announced on Sunday night, and it looks like the Alabama Crimson Tide will fall out of the No. 1 spot with their lose today to Johnny Football and his Texas A&M Aggies.  As reported by ESPN,  Johnny Football and the SEC newbies from Texas A&M took down the biggest bully in their new neighborhood and left No. 1 Alabama with badly bruised national championship hopes. Johnny Manziel, a.k.a, Johnny Football, led the 15th-ranked Aggies to a 29-24 win against the BCS Standings No. 1 Alabama on their home turf on Saturday. Now, courting an 8-2 record, Texas A&M should make a significant  jump in the BCS Rankings.  Their two losses were to Florida (20-17) and LSU (24-19), and both games were at home.  But, are they No.1?   A better bet might be Kansas State, or even better the Oregon Ducks.  Or, perhaps the Fighting Irish…

NCAA Punishes Penn State

Was the NCAA punishment of Penn State football fair?  What’s your opinion? How long will it take Penn State football to recover from these NCAA sanctions? Let us know in your comments!   Read More on Child Sex Abuse by Jerry Sandusky and why Jerry Sandusky Case Will Never End Related articles NCAA move makes history for Penn State, Emmert, college sports – CBSSports.com(cbssports.com)

There are some indications that a Joe Paterno Foundation will be established in the foreseeable future.  That part seems to be fact.  However, it’s fiction to believe that the Joe Paterno Foundation for Sexually Abused Children will be established.  I believe it should be.  A Joe Paterno Foundation for Sexually Abused Children would allow Joe Paterno to do what he claims he should have done; he should have done more to help the kids that were abused by Jerry Sandusky.  Plus, it would help alumni like I contribute to help overcome this terrible injustice to victims of child sexual abuse. Here are some more notable comments to set the backdrop for my argument: Tom Corbett, Governor of Pennsylvania, Joe should have done more! Watch this video if you have a few minutes to spare.  Otherwise, just keep reading! Southwest Florida Alums Concede Joe Paterno should have done more! I believe this…

College Football Playoff Approved for 2014

Yesterday it became official, and what was a six-month “evaluation process” reached its conclusion.  The Bowl Championship Series (or BCS), which began in 1998, will be terminated following this coming college football season.  A committee of 12 University presidents (why University presidents and not college Athletic Directors?……..please keep these high-level administrators OUT of sports and focused on academics!) approved a four-team playoff plan recommended by commissioners of the top football conferences.  This approval was NOT unanimous, but those that did not go along with the plan basically said they “did not want to stop progress”.  Progress?  Progress for whom?  Don’t get me wrong, I was not a huge fan of the BCS system but at least for the next 12 years the approved playoff system to me will just make the rich richer!    Here’s the format for the new four-team playoff:   #1 will play #4, and #2 will…

This vagabond football coach has held 15 jobs for 11 different programs over the last 24 years.  He put his latest employer, the University of Arkansas and its Athletic Director Jeff Long, in a very awkward and embarrassing position by not initially telling the truth to police and University officials surrounding the details of his April 1st motorcycle crash. Consequently, the Bobby Petrino scandal is a hot sports topic!   Bobby Petrino was not charged with any crime and he’s currently not in any legal trouble, but because of a noteworthy clause in his contract he was subsequently fired on April 10th for “engaging in reckless and unacceptable behavior that was misleading and manipulative”.  Now there’s a head coach that could care less about being a role model and teacher to young men!  And, the Bobby Petrino scandal has drawn the attention of many a punster!  You just have to…

OK… the “Biggest Rip-Off in College Football History”  might be a bit of an overstatement, but I’m listening to Brent  Musberger call tonight’s college football game between Alabama and LSU and he seems to have the privalege of overstatement.  Boy, does he! I boycotted this game.  I wasn’t going to watch it, and I really didn’t.  But, I did have an interest.  I saw a lot of great football during this Bowl Season, but was not looking forward to this game.  I already saw it!  And, a 9-6 game repeated as a National Championship did not generate any anticipation on my part.  This was a totally new experience in in my life!  I used to anticipate these “National Championship” games.  This a was total farse in my opinion!  Admittedly, I did watch the last quarter. It’s amazing to think that a National Champion can be crowned without any decent quarterback play!…

While I’m not sure it’s totally official, Penn State University (PSU) seemed to come to closure today with the news that New England Patriot offensive coordinator, Bill O’Brien, will replace the legendary Joe Paterno as the future coach of the Nittany Lions. Yet, this positive announcement was tainted by some in the PSU Letterman’s Club (on Facebook).  The most pronounced, at least in today’s news, was Brandon Short.  LaVar Arrington went as far as saying; “I will put my Butkus (Award) in storage. I will put my Alamo Bowl MVP trophy in storage,” Arrington said. “Jerseys, anything Penn State, in storage. Wherever Tom Bradley goes, that’s the school I will start to put memorabilia up in my home. I’m done. I’m done with Penn State. If they’re done with us, I’m done with them.” Hey LaVar… I once had a lot of respect for you as a college player; but you can…
