***2017 College Football Thread***

College football is 60 days out! It can't come soon enough!

May you all farewell as the season brings you a roller coaster of emotions!

My grand-nephew sold me a raffle ticket to support his local football team.
3rd prize: 2 tickets to UCLA vs USC on Nov 18th. I have never wanted to be 3rd like this.

Fight on!

Is this chart accurate? Does the roller coaster drop on Oct 7 this year?

Could be worse, they were giving away Michigan tickets with Pepsi purchases a few years ago

Pretty cool look at the 2007 season by SB Nation. Good offseason reading at least

Lots of hype going on for Alabama vs Florida State game. Will it be the G.O.A.T. - the Greatest Opener of All Time?

Here's a comical article about the cost of going to the game:

as a buckeye fan, I want to apologize for our team single handedly ruining the playoffs for anybody else who might get in without winning their conference.

that being said, we will be in the playoffs again this year!!! O-H

Man I wonder what both of those teams would look like if they raised their SAT/ACT entrance score requirements to that of the Big Ten.

Interesting assessment, but I do not understand your claim. First, comparing conferences should be taken with a grain of salt since we have a College Football Playoff and teams are judged on strength of schedule which encourages them to play out of conference match-ups now.

Also, are you trying to explain the correlation of a school's standardized test requirement to football recruiting and performance in regard to the schools within the Big Ten Conference? Are you trying to allude the Big Ten is known to have the highest scoring SAT/ACT football players with the most successful football programs? Do you have any data that suggests what both those teams would "look like" with such changes?

I have two hypotheses:

1) Both those teams would be a lot worse and nonexistent like 80% of the Big Ten Conference (excluding Ohio St., Michigan).

2) Imagine if everyone raised their testing standards to Harvard and Yale. What would that do to college football and recruiting? Absolutely nothing. Football programs are one, if not the largest, money making businesses for any university. The same kids will be recruited regardless of how tough the school is to get into.

It was just a hit at both of these schools programs; it's an embarrassment to the NCAA when you have guys in there that can't barely read. They 100% bend the rules MUCH farther in terms of academics than schools like Michigan, MSU, Iowa, etc. I just know these schools more because it's where I grew up.

I went to Florida State University.

Are you now coming up with accusations on bending rules? Do you have further proof or stats on this? Why hasn't anyone taken corrective action over the past 5+ years?

I wasn't aware all these kids with low standardized test scores were football prodigies and can just take the field and dominate without having great football program foundations (sarcasm). I feel like it would be even harder to train these kids if they are "so dumb"

Once again, it's all about the money and will continue to be, nothing has changed.

Every college football program bends the rules, even Michigan, MSU, Iowa, etc...just because you "know these schools more" doesn't mean they follow the rules any more than other schools

Please, all schools look the other way. Except maybe Stanford.

Example...Cal Berkeley admitting Marshawn Lynch and Desean Jackson.
