re: Projected SEC 2019 enrollment numbers. - Toneski
[quote] Average SAT was 1400 and 30 ACT. 20-25 years ago it was probably more like 1150/25 or so.[/quote] For those who don’t know, the SAT test was “re-skewed” in the early ‘90s. Test scores taken prior to reskewing should have 120 to 160 (can’t recall exact amount) points added to be equivalent...

re: Is it time again to reduce football schollies? - Toneski
[quote]because that generates revenue for the school.[/quote] You've circled around to the crux of the matter. College football is the cash generator. I'm proposing an idea to save college football and preserve the cash generator. Maybe you didn't read my entire post but the point is we're...

re: Is it time again to reduce football schollies? - Toneski
[quote]Aside from these differences, drastically cutting scholarships across the board essentially eliminates academic opportunities for a few thousand teenagers.[/quote] This statement seems wrong. The money for scholarships doesn't go away just because football schollies get reduced. That mon...

Is it time again to reduce football schollies? - Toneski
There have been 5 College Football Playoffs. That is a total of 20 playoff spots with 10 different teams having filled those spots. Given the current status of teams, conferences, etc., we will likely go another 5 years of College Football playoffs with maybe only another 2 or 3 different teams be...

re: Kirby is so dumb that an NFL team wants to talk to him - Toneski
[quote] Free agents have to be recruited, he would be a players coach. He was selective about his first HC job in college, dont see him jumping at just any NFL job, if any at all. Probably looking for a raise like Lincoln Riley got [/quote] Don’t think Kirby was extremely selective about his firs...

[quote] The NCAA drug tests at all championship events. Not many of y’all have to worry about that though.[/quote] I know you were poking fun with this statement but serious question.... Would the NCAA be drug testing for the CFP? I don’t think the CFP is an NCAA event. College football is ru...

re: 5* RB Trey Sanders - Toneski
[quote]but part of it is he’s figured out the under the table stuff too.[/quote] I was at a preseason luncheon and the speaker was a 247 Sports recruiting insider. He said some stuff that I doubt he would ever put in print on a website. According to the Insider, after Kirby took over at UGA,...

re: Am I late noticing USC’s recent ranking in US News? - Toneski
IBG - aren’t you working in Manhattan in finance? My friend’s stepdaughter that went to Notre Dame is a financial analyst in Manhattan. She’s been up there since she graduated from ND, about 4 years. Her fiancé, also a ND grad, works there as well. My friend’s stepdaughter is one of those pe...

re: Am I late noticing USC’s recent ranking in US News? - Toneski
Interesting stuff Rooster. As I said in my OP and you also said, the University makes more money from out of state students. I wasn’t aware of all the other positives to an OOS student that you mentioned. I have a relative who is retired from USC and still attends annual “State of USC” meetin...

[quote]ou do realize HS baseball players that are drafted sometimes turn down 100's of thousands of dollars to go to college. Trust me,these kids will get agents and $150k ain't gonna move the needle for 90% of em. I think you're wrong here. [/quote] Yes he's wrong and you are correct. ...

[quote]None of it is "solid" if it's not financially viable.[/quote] Who are you to say what is financially viable? You said in your comments "If some billionaire wants to spend.....more power to him". If someone is willing to do it then it's something these kids can take advantage of whether you...

re: In 2001 The XFL considered allowing kids straight from HS to play - Toneski
Lots of good points about the financial feasibility of the OP’s idea. So maybe the OP has salaries that don’t seem realistic to some. The OP’s idea and the argument are solid. Those of you arguing against high school football players signing with a professional league have very weak platf...

In US News ranking of National Universities USC is 5th in the conference behind #14 Vandy #35 UF #46 UGA #66 TAMU USC is #106. Last time I recall looking at this list USC was ranked behind those above as well as UA, AU and I think maybe UT and LSU as well. I don’t know the criteria fo...

re: State of Gamecock Recruiting for 2019 - Toneski
[quote]I dont understand how Steele's commitment is suppose to stay under wraps until he "announces" @ the allstar game when he's signing next Wedensday.[/quote] I agree.
