    So my original prediction on the CFP holds? Cool!

    Bama
    Clemson
    Ohio State
    One other team

    I think having most of the CFP be the same teams every year will get us closer to the 6 or 8 team playoffs.

    It sounds like the woman in question became extremely angry and bitter because her husband allegedly cheated on her. You know the saying about a scorned woman. And then factor in that she's psychotic to begin with and sees money at the end of the rainbow and that's how we get a story like this. The national media convicted Meyer 5 minutes after her story aired, of course.

    Yes, it looks like the convictions were premature.

    But Meyer gets at least some of the blame for that. At the media day interviews, he said he had never hear about the accusations of abuse. Or at least he said he hadn't heard about them until the night before. When the facts came out, Urban HAD known about the accusations and had reported them. There was evidence that he had heard about them. If he had told the truth at the BIG10 media days, the scandal would never have happened. Or if he had simply refused to discuss it, the scandal would never have happened.

    Yea, Urban lied to the media. Then the media turned around did the same thing in that much of what reported was incorrect. We'll see what the investigation reveals and go from there.

    Did he lie? I am not sure I would remember an incedent that did not turn inot charges after a couple of years. How many allegations of improper activities does a football coach get in a year? It could be alot! I would only remember the ones that got substantiated! I also do not think you should lose your job for no conviction!

    As far as I'm concerned he lied, and I'm a huge fan. But the investigative committee determined that he was confused at the press conference (B1G Media Days) and misspoke. Whatever. We've had presidents and other high-ranking government officials lie to the press all the time and nobody calls for their jobs.

    We have a Pope that hides a known pedophile but the media is only fixated on Urban.

    Very telling.

    In fact, the NCAA reversed many of the Penn State penalties for having run a charity to pimp out boys.

    OSU had more happen to it over pants for tatoos than Penn State had for a real fiasco! OSU gets picked on and it is kinda bull shit!
