    Re: College Football Pecking Order

    Without reading the article I'd say that's about right... now. Give CPR a few more years and we'll be up in the royalty.

    Agree on the Peasants. Surprised he didn't go further and say worms.

    He's a bit off though. Notre Dame and Nebraska are no longer Kings.

    Notre Dame certainly us just based off of fanbase and profits. Nebraska probably no so much

    I agree they are not what they used to be. I also don't agree with Miami being on there.

    Miami needs a step or two down, for sure, along with Nebraska, Penn State, and maybe Florida State. ND should still probably be a King due to perception.

    Penn State needs to be a step below Michigan and Ohio State, and Miami and FSU need to be a step below Florida. There are significant distinctions in national perception between them, IMO.

    I don't like it, but it seems fairly true

    I agree totally, move PSU and FSU down to Barons. Nebraska should go down too, but they and Miami are only 10 years removed from a national title showdown.

    Re: College Football Pecking Order

    Nope, **** him. When you look at who he has as Knights we are easily in those ranks. And we're above who he's ranked us with in Peasants. His "Kings"are BS too - FSU, Miami, ND, UN? I understand that we're still climbing our way out of a decades-long hole, but him annointing many of these teams is crap.


    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.
