Re: Spring 2021 FCS: Scouting for the next Donald Parham

Athlon has put out its preseason rankings. I think FCS preseason rankings are extra useless, especially in a weird season like this. But still fun to look at: 1. North Dakota State 2. Weber State 3. Northern Iowa 4. James Madison 5. South Dakota State 6. Kennesaw State 7. Villanova 8. Nicholls 9. Il...

Re: Spring 2021 FCS: Scouting for the next Donald Parham

I'm studying up on Tarleton vs. McNeese. Among the things I learned: Neither of these teams are eligible for the playoffs Tarleton is still transitioning from Division II and McNeese is ineligible for academic reasons. Ed Orgeron's son is the McNeese quarterback Cody Orgeron was the 2019 starter, th...

Not only that, AFL did that in 2004 or 2005 and lost a lot of momentum.

Re: McMahon countersues Luck

I mean, so much of Luck's value was in him just being a serious football person who wasn't Vince. Vince didn't really need him to land a TV contract, but he wouldn't get a TV contract without being able to convince everyone that it wouldn't be like 2001. And that's what Luck delivered. So it's sort ...

Re: Spring 2021 FCS: Scouting for the next Donald Parham

It's definitely messy, but I'm pumped to have another few months of football. Third straight year with meaningful full field football in the spring. Here's hoping we can finish the season this time.
