TCU absolutely got screwed.


No matter what system is devised there will always be a school or two and it's supporters who will feel they were screwed. Go to 8 teams and teams numbered 9 & 10 will feel they were left out, especially if they were number 2 in their conference and other conferences had two teams or if one had three teams.

But if both FSU and OSU lose we have two teams in. If FSU doesn't go undefeated, we move ahead of them every time. The ACC is the conference that will be overcome by the four team playoff. But if we are coerced into adding a championship game, part of the deal had better be that the other conferences play nine games.


I agree. Most years we are going to be in. We shouldn't get drastic and start adding lesser quality schools to the Big 12 just because one year the dice didn't roll our way.

It's now 2015-16 but a very strange turn of events for Mizzou's football program

If Mizzou hadn't left the Big 12, maybe its administrators could have watched how Oklahoma's leaders handled that school's racist unpleasantness, and maybe they would still have jobs. Also: First black student in 1950? Boggles the mind.

"First black student in 1950? Boggles the mind."

Why? Given the history of the state and many universities in general no surprise at all.

My mistake. As a relative newcomer, I am still learning that in many ways, Missouri appears to have more in common with its neighbors to the south than with its neighbors to the north. Iowa State and the U of Iowa were both admitting black students in the 19th century, and I extrapolated that too far.

I still don't understand this story. So, the President got ousted because of a poop swastika and some guys in a truck yelling the n-word who might not have even been students at the University. Was it more than that?

YES.


I have followed this news event pretty closely and I have to disagree. Unless there is some undercurrent of racial tension peppered by incidents that are not being reported, the incidents that have been reported constitute a very weak case. A lot serious issues take place on other campuses around the country (like a noose on the statue of a black person at Ole Miss last year) that create almost no reaction whatsoever. Furthermore, Wolfe and the Missouri Chancellor have done absolutely nothing wrong. To throw them under the bus so that Mizzou can play a football game on Saturday is frankly unfathomable and shows a lack of integrity that I never thought the university of Missouri would ever stoop to.

Well, you lost me after "shit head." After that your argument became meaningless. Too bad you never learned about civil discussion or how to conduct yourself without name calling.

"Elizabeth Loutfi, editor-in-chief of The Maneater, Missouri’s campus newspaper, said while Wolfe’s resignation was a result of recent protests, Loftin’s resignation has been demanded by protesters since this time last year.
“There were a lot of student groups on campus who decided this time last year that administrators weren’t as effective as they wanted them to be at responding to protests and discrimination on campus,” Loutfi said.
Loutfi said when a student group on campus called MU for Mike Brown formed in 2014 in response to the death of Brown, it took campus administration four months to respond to the organization’s efforts. "

The student (Jonathan Butler) who went on a "hunger strike" in the middle of all this Mizzou hype is just another privileged college student living off of daddy’s millions. In other words, he’s your typical modern liberal activist. Jonathan Butler's father is Eric L. Butler, executive vice president for sales and marketing for the Union Pacific Railroad. His 2014 compensation was $8.4 million, according to regulatory filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Progressive liberalism is a mental disorder.

So, someone who is willing to go on a hunger strike to call attention to something he views as an injustice, but can obviously afford, is bad?

Would love to know what color the sky is in your world.

Plus I'm sure all that support he found was just a few hundred students who wanted to stir up shit over totally fabricated injustices.

Frankly, if the MU President isn't nimble enough to navigate this kind of event he's probably not cut out for the job. He'll be fine and making 6 figures in no time.

Michigan went through something like this last year, but it didn't involved the football team, so nobody cared.
