TweetAt the risk of being misidentified once again as either a techie or the next President of the United States by the guys at Sports & Grits, I once again take to the old Excel spreadsheet to analyze Georgia’s 2011 season record verses that of the Louisiana State University Tigers. First, though, I’ll warn you […]

TweetWhen a person, business, church, organization, or college athletics program holds itself out as a paragon of virtue, and it then turns out to be not so virtuous, its fall comes fast and far. The bigger they are, the harder they fall. The Pennsylvania State University community is experiencing a stomach-churning descent into the abyss. […]

MIKE SLIVE’S SECRET REASON FOR CONFERENCE EXPANSION: http://ballhyped.com/2011/11/08/mike-slive%e2%80%99s-secret-reason-for-conference-expansion/ Tue, 08 Nov 2011 10:48:19 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/11/08/mike-slive%e2%80%99s-secret-reason-for-conference-expansion/

TweetSo, why is Southeastern Conference expansion so desirable? If the goal is to increase the number of eyes to watch SEC football and basketball on TV and bodies in stadiums and coliseums, won’t southern population increases, by themselves, take care of increasing numbers of eyes and bodies? Here’s the rub, while the South overall has […]

WVU v. Louisville for Big 12 Slot http://ballhyped.com/2011/10/27/wvu-v-louisville-for-big-12-slot/ Thu, 27 Oct 2011 14:07:04 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/10/27/wvu-v-louisville-for-big-12-slot/

TweetQuestions about conference stability were soon to be a thing of the past. Big 12 members agreed to a grant of television rights that would secure members anywhere from 6 to 10 years. The dysfunctional conference of bickering programs seemed to be growing up and its members acting like adults. Even the impending departure of […]

TweetMost sports fans, including many Florida fans, mistakenly believe the Gators are directly named after the reptile. Most University of Florida authorities, however, recognize that the Gators football team was not, in fact, named after an animal, but rather after a man.

No Divisions, No Sweat – Rescheduling the SEC http://ballhyped.com/2011/10/20/no-divisions-no-sweat-rescheduling-the-sec/ Thu, 20 Oct 2011 19:10:41 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/10/20/no-divisions-no-sweat-rescheduling-the-sec/

TweetThere is no more reason to have divisions in football than basketball, particularly if the conference is 14 teams. The top two teams make it to Atlanta, as it should be, and the bowls pick without regard to divisions, so why bother. With an 8 game season, 2 7-team divisions and 1 permanent opponent in […]

Recruiting Issues Solved: The Residency Model http://ballhyped.com/2011/09/15/recruiting-issues-solved-the-residency-model/ Thu, 15 Sep 2011 11:16:22 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/09/15/recruiting-issues-solved-the-residency-model/

TweetSo on the surface this may see a little complicated, but this system has been used to place graduating medical students with residency programs since 1952. Basically it works similar to pledging the greek system. An individual ranks his/her programs in order of desire and the programs do the same by ranking individuals. The computer […]

TweetPAC 12 blog sec_pinwheel_240x247The Duck Stops Here speaks for many, if not all, west coast football fans when they complain that the SEC does not deserve its reputation as the dominate force in NCAA football because SEC schools play only 8 conference games.

TweetThe SEC should expand by adding Texas A & M University as soon as possible. Adding the Aggies to the SEC makes sense in the only way that matters in college football, economic sense. First, let’s consider where the SEC is right now. Most southeastern states that are home to Southeastern Conference teams are relatively […]

TweetEveryone writes a series on the usual boring subjects as we await the start of football practices in the fall. But few actually study film and give analysis. Along those lines and with more than my share of film to review, I thought you might enjoy first how the defense the Gamecocks operates and then […]
