    I do recall when you needed at least a .500 record to go to a bowl game. State goes to 4-7 with this big win! (I know, I know, they also beat Mizzou last month; fortunately our own prestigious bowl was canceled due to the sniffles so we can stand pat at 5-5)

    This year's college football season can be summed up very briefly -- the best handful of games all featured ... Coastal Carolina?

    This is a very good argument for removing the big money sports from college's grasping hands completely. Force them to pay their athletes salaries, create a bunch of minor league teams, and let all the sports-obsessed donors buy a minor league team with their money.

    That's true. But it didn't consist of entire teams. Besides at least The Gipper, et al. could actually read and didn't look like they were all on work release.

    Indeed. One of our biggest problems is that high school diplomas just aren't worth much anymore. We're never going to raise the standards to graduate from high school, because that would just drive up the dropout rates, which everyone thinks is a Bad Thing. So what states should do is create diploma tiers (equivalent to cum laude, summa cum laude, etc.) to signal to potential employers that the graduate actually learned something. It would maybe give more high school students greater motivation to learn something.

    Good on you. One of the most depressing things in my state was to see 40 - 60 year old men worshiping a bunch of teens/youth running around on a football field. The absence of crowds at sportsball games is truly one of Covid's silver linings.
  25. Rugby in the amateur era did a lot less damage to players, because they weren’t in the gym 5 days a week, but there were some YUGE fights in those days.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/99_call

    The tour was marred by on-pitch violence, which the match officials did little to control and the relative absence of cameras compared to the modern game made citing and punishment after the fact unlikely.

    Lions’ captain Willie John McBride therefore instigated a policy of “one in, all in” – that is, when one Lion retaliated, all other Lions were expected to join in the melee or hit the nearest Springbok. By doing so, the referee would be unable to identify any single instigator and so would be left with the choice of sending off all or none of the team. In this respect, the “99” call was extremely successful, as no Lions player was sent off during the tour.

  26. It’s almost as if splitting up the armed forces into adversarial teams isn’t a good idea or something.

  27. Mississippi State, which won the game, received the invitation to the Lockheed Martin Armed Services Bowl with a record of 3-7. Arkansas (3-7) and South Carolina (2-8) also received bowl invitations. This is acceptable because of COVID of course. (Mercifully, the latter two bowl games were canceled, presumably because of COVID although I doubt that anyone was paying attention enough to know the real story.)

    I don’t know which is worse, these teams getting the honor of a postseason invitation or Ohio State getting to play for the national championship despite playing only six games during the season.

  28. Dammit all, just one was wearing a mask. Why are they even doing bowl games this year? The Division one championship playoff thing is even a bigger joke than normal. Ohio State played a mere 4 games. How do you even rank with 4 games?

    Good point, Wilkey. Let the pure athletes go play for the minor league football and basketball teams and get paid without having to play games pretending to be students. Let colleges field teams solely from walk ons, so that they have games between actual student athletes. They could afford to have lots of other sports that way, too. All with student athletes, not mercenaries. The colleges would probably see attendance increase as the student athletes would be their classmates, and there will be much less flipping off the flag, kneeling and obscene gestures. Fewer fights, too.

    I only commented re: collegiate football history because that was the topic (Army-Navy) brawl. As it turns out most of the brawlers were non-white, as per reports. (The early collegiate football violence was all white players, BTW, as blacks didn't play in the Ivy Leagues, if anywhere, then.)

    My history comments weren't based on memory. I'm not 130 years old.

    As for baseball I can't say. Unless you are 100 years old you don't 'remember' the 1920s-1940s either. There may have been baseball violence too, though mostly probably by fans. Playing was more violent too at times. Yes, other than in the Negro League, white players and fans.

    However even then it was considered bad sportsmanship to fight during games. Fans are just that, but often drunk when fighting each other. British football - soccer - (and some European) is notorious for fan violence. Again mostly white. They had to crack down and it is now (pre-COVID) heavily policed in some places.

    My comment about blacks and attitude is based on observing "showboating" mainly by blacks. Mostly in football however. Used to be heavily penalized when players did that in college. Pros are more restrained but some dancing is tolerated. That's not violent. However taunting can be a prelude to fighting, in sports as in life.

    Trash talking became popular in black culture in the past 30 years or so, merged with some forms of rap, etc. It isn't nor has it been exclusively a black thing. Get whitey half drunk and he's at it too, always was that way. My take isn't racial but cultural. Glorifying violence leads to bad things, no matter who does it.

    If you want violence, go see a boxing match or MMA bout. Not other sports. Bragging about a successful play or trashing a losing opponent is bad sportsmanship. Low class behavior.

    Remember when someone had to actually be intelligent to get into college?

    Not a good effort. This comment is one level up from “nuh uhh”. I give the comment a C-

    With the affirmative action adjustment for your…uhh…”limitations”, that comes out to an A. Well done Truth, you’re an A student now, just like the white kids.

    Are you fucking kidding me? As with all conservatives, you're history-challenged. And you are probably a child, and thus don't remember, hell, the 1990s much less 1932.

    For your information, young man, lily-white baseball brawls for instance (football was nothing in the first 40 years of the century--although lily-white football players brawled with the best of them) were much more common, much more deadly, and continued after the game was over. You wouldn't know Shoeless Joe from Kokomo, you Youth of Today, you.

    Research "Hunkie from coal country" and you will learn all about last-century "civility."

    I only commented re: collegiate football history because that was the topic (Army-Navy) brawl. As it turns out most of the brawlers were non-white, as per reports. (The early collegiate football violence was all white players, BTW, as blacks didn’t play in the Ivy Leagues, if anywhere, then.)

    My history comments weren’t based on memory. I’m not 130 years old.

    As for baseball I can’t say. Unless you are 100 years old you don’t ‘remember’ the 1920s-1940s either. There may have been baseball violence too, though mostly probably by fans. Playing was more violent too at times. Yes, other than in the Negro League, white players and fans.

    However even then it was considered bad sportsmanship to fight during games. Fans are just that, but often drunk when fighting each other. British football – soccer – (and some European) is notorious for fan violence. Again mostly white. They had to crack down and it is now (pre-COVID) heavily policed in some places.

    This is what Bill and Ted Idiocracy young people think. They think if you weren't alive in a particular period, then you don't know it.

    You won't understand this, but maybe others will.

    Young people don't know history. At all.

    Old people do.

    Even history they weren't alive to see.

    Moronic young people, like you, who fucked off in school, never learned anything, don't read books, couldn't tell Napoleon from a hole in the wall.

    Nobody missed it. It was obvious, just childish. But like I said, I bumped you up a few grades so you can pretend you're just as smart as the others.

  53. It’s really something how those tax leeching, defense contractors are allowed sponsor football at the academies.

  54. Privileged low-IQ thugs pretending they belong in academia.

    And don’t get me started on the (((MIC))).

  55. …no different than the “Negro Felon League”…lol

  56. Negroes behaving badly. When the first blacks began playing for formerly all white major universities they were dignified and well behaved but now that they comprise a majority of most rosters NCAA football has gone totally ghetto.

    I wonder if this will be blamed on a confederate statue somewhere within 500 miles of the bowl site or any statue that might be offensive to negro sensibilities.
