    Agreed.

    A toast!

    Really more of a skeptic....the idea of moral leadership and football seems to me a bit of an oxymoron....

    I remember when a student manager at ND was sent up in a portable tower a few years ago to film practice on a very windy day and the thing blew over killing the student. The reaction from the ND administration, especially Brian Kelly, was to blame the student. Par for the course....

    by definition, any BTE compilation (in any sport at any level) that has the top 5 teams all from the last 14 years is obviously written by somebody with no sense of history.

    In my mind, having watched college ball for 50+ years, the 1971 Cornhuskers were the best pound-for-pound (i.e., era-dominant) team ever. Beating Okla in the Game of the Century made me a believer.

    My thoughts exactly reading that. A strong case of recency bias.

    Without knowing very much at all about college football, I had the same reaction to that article.
