    The worse thing about college football...the cluelessness of the coaches...

    That definitely comes from his need for his players to be totally invested in the TEAM, and not be distracted by $$$. While I'm all for paying players a stipend on top of their scholarships, that will become a HUGE can of worms for everyone. Talk about restraint-of-trade suits! It's one thing to take away a scholarship; it's totally another to take money out of their pockets!

    Yeah, that's about as hypocritical as it gets. He also once bemoaned athletes engaging in political speech he didn't like, insisting that he supported free speech before saying "Some of these people need to move to another country. Some of them need to move to another country."

    The chatter among college football commentators yesterday is that Ohio State, LSU and Clemson have already clinched spots in the playoffs and are only playing for seeding. I think that may be true for Ohio State and LSU, but I'm not sure about Clemson.

    my Englais not so bono - what means, "are only playing for seeding. I think that may be true for Ohio State and LSU, but I'm not sure about Clemson."?
    My feeble mind interprets that to mean that OhSt and LSU are playing for seeding; Clemson is playing just to make the final 4.

    Pretty sure Jazz was saying that some experts are implying all three teams were in (win or lose). He was simply saying if Clemson does lose, that he does not agree they are in.

    Correct. They think that none of the three need to win in order to make the playoffs but I think that Clemson might be out if the lose to Virginia because of their weak resume. What do you think?
