Re: Are Penn and Turbin done?

<t>I believe there is a rule in the CBA where veteran contracts are guaranteed for the full season unless the player is signed after week 1, so many teams looking for a 1 year stop-gap vet with little tread left on the tires will wait until then. I think that's likely with Penn - unless a team has a...

Re: Computer rankings

As a member of the massey composite - I want to throw in one HUGE caveat. A lot of ratings this early in the season are dependent on preseason speculation. I think the 76 rating is fair (we haven't proven otherwise), but if you look at the final ratings for last season - http://www.masseyratings.com...

Re: Mobile app for Who2Root4

Depending on how frequently you need to update your data, you might be able to use Kenneth Massey's data for the teams and schedules on masseyratings.com. It's all in a standard format that is meant to be parsed. The scores are updated ~ daily

Re: Will recruiting and scheduling pick up with TD?

I think recruiting has a chance to get a lot better. TD may have learned a lot from Stew, but he isn't Stew. Coach Morrill, as we all know, wasn't always the easiest person to play for, and you can bet that was brought up during recruiting battles. TD, on the other hand, seemed to be the favorite ch...

I think speed in a blowout can be deceptive. IMO, a lot of football speed can be credited to one side of the football "doing" while the other side is "guessing". Indecision by our team against Tennessee and BSU made us look mighty slow. However, if you get some (I can't express myself without sweari...

Early turnovers and a few short fields.

Re: Something Strange is Afoot

There are 2 factors in that game that could affect Fresno. The first is that BYU is relatively well connected with the MWC at this point, so any result will likely not have a huge ripple. The second is that BYU is probably much more highly rated than Nevada by just about every computer out there. So...
