The NFL is considering more than doubling the extra point, making the 20-yard gimme a 43-yard kick for the PAT. It's a stupid idea with unintended consequences that surely commissioner Roger Goodell hasn't considered.
Nebraska football coach Bo Pelini has his contract extension and his reputation as an intense, um, jerk. But he's a lot more than that. Talk to Jack Hoffman's dad. Or talk to Bob Pelini about his own kids ... the big softie.
CBSSports.com draft experts Dane Brugler (Blake Bortles) and Rob Rang (Jadeveon Clowney) differ on whom they think the Houston Texans will pick No. 1 overall in the 2014 NFL Draft. I see Johnny Manziel!
Creighton's Doug McDermott passed Oscar Robertson and reached 3,000 points on Senior Night in front of his dad, coach Greg McDermott, and a record CenturyLink Arena crowd. The national player of the year turned Senior Night into a Disney movie.
Wichita State's relatively weak strength of schedule (SOS) has some critics saying the Shockers don't deserve a No. 1 seed in the 2014 NCAA Tournament. Coach Gregg Marshall doesn't apologize for the schedule, and his assistant explains how this one came to be.
Opinions are like assholes - Everybody's got one. Here's mine... my opinion that is.
Wichita State went to the final four in a year that seemed like anybody could have won. the draft was as down as the draft has been in years. it was just a down year overall. This is not to diminish what Greg has done there. A Final Four is special no matter what year it is. But then they follow that up with an undefeated regular season (so far) with a strength of schedule outside the top 100.
Now all of a sudden Greg and Boatright expect other teams to schedule them like their a power house? Dude! Greg! You are still a mid major. You have only beaten 1 ranked team on the road since the 2007-08 season. You want other teams to stop treating you like a mid major? stop scheduling like a mid major!
It took Boise State how long until they got a shot at a BCS Bowl? primarily because of their non-conference scheduling. When they started scheduling bigger teams in the NC schedule, they shot up the rankings more and more each year until they made it.
There are teams out there like Michigan State that will play anybody, anytime, anywhere. I find it hard to believe that Boatright has done his due diligence.
Of course undefeated Wichita State deserves a No. 1 seed in the 2014 NCAA Tournament. The debate isn't the Shockers' strength of schedule knocking them down to a 2-seed. The debate is: Are they the No. 1 overall seed? Or Florida or Arizona?
The Houston Texans have many choices for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft -- Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles, Teddy Bridgewater, Jadeveon Clowney, Khalil Mack, even Greg Robinson -- which means the Texans don't really have one great choice.
