Well, we could live
For a thousand years
And if I hurt you
I’d make wine from your tears
I told you
That we can fly
Because we all have wings
But some of us don’t know why

I was standing
You were there
two worlds collided
and they could never tear us apart...
unless we were found hanging by a rope in a hotel suite.
RIP, Michael.

Well, I'll bet people around the country that follow college sports paid attention; and some of them probably looked into SFA, where it is and what it's about. Perhaps their applications will go up this year. Donors too, somewhat.

That's a heckuva win, and a good start.
It seems we're watching the rest of Tejas pass us up, slowly but surely.

Signature wins aren't all of the picture, but they are an important and necessary part. Good for SFA. Congrats.

Free throws - Duke 24-40; SFA 11-17

I watched from the under 8:00 timeout through the end of the game and SFA did not get the benefit of one call and there were some really questionable calls in favor of Duke.

SFA really handled the post-game interviews very well. A really nice performance.

Transformation vs Incrementalism
Ironically, transformation is a 6.5 point favorite this week, although incrementalism has a 53.4% chance of winning according to ESPN’s FPI.

Exclamation RE: Transformation vs Incrementalism

No more Dolphins:

Jacksonville University Discontinues Football

Keep their statement on file, it might well come in handy as a template in a few years, but I certainly hope not:

Quote:"...the University announced it will no longer play football and will discontinue its Division I program, effective immediately. The University has participated in the non-scholarship Pioneer Football League since 1998.

This was a difficult decision," said Athletic Director Alex Ricker-Gilbert. "Our student-athletes and coaches in the football program are talented, tenacious and hard working. We respect them immensely. Reinvesting these resources into our other Division I programs better positions us to enhance the experience for all 450 student-athletes."

“We took a comprehensive approach, examining how we invest across the entire department,” said Ricker-Gilbert. “All options were on the table through this process and we made a commitment to hold off on any premature conclusions until we had a complete picture. Ultimately, one option stood out as the best path forward for Jacksonville Athletics as a whole. When you consider all that we commit to coaching, recruiting, advising, facilities, conditioning, nutrition, and academic counseling, it’s clear the resources required to support our football program outweigh the benefits to the overall Athletics Department and the University.”

JU is a small private university in Jacksonville, Fla. (Total enrollment: 4,213, including 2,292 full-time undergraduates) ... not to be confused with the smallish state university in Jacksonville, Ala., Jacksonville State U. (Total enrollment: 9,021, including 5,942 full-time undergraduates).

The JU announcement also noted:

Quote:With the goal of recruiting top-quality student-athletes who exhibit excellence on and off the field, Jacksonville Athletics also has focused its investment on enhancing the student-athlete experience with projects like the Jacksonville Lacrosse Center, upgrades to the baseball stadium and, just this fall, announcing a new basketball training facility.

Founded in 1993, the Pioneer Football League says it's the NCAA's only non-scholarship D-1 FCS conference. Jacksonville was 1-7 in conference play the past two seasons.

Actually, they say they are the only non-scholarship, football-only (emphasis added) D1 FCS conference.

That football-only makes a difference. Because I'm pretty sure the Ivy League is non-scholarship.

Only as a technicality - they are really at a huge advantage in the "non-revenue" sports, in that they can recruit so many more athletes, and "rightfully" claim that they don't have athletic scholarships.

Thanks for the correction.

(Geez, I'm on quite a negative roll for inaccurate posts lately. Can't even copy/paste correctly. Grrr.)

Not hard to guess who's #1....

ESPN's The 150 greatest coaches in college football's 150-year history
Dec 10, 2019

Also:

Quote:30. John Heisman, 186-70-18
Oberlin (1892, 1894; 11-3-1), Buchtel (now Akron) (1893-94; 6-2), Auburn (1895-99; 12-4-2), Clemson (1900-03; 19-3-2), Georgia Tech (1904-19; 102-29-7), Pennsylvania (1920-22; 16-10-2), Washington & Jefferson (1923; 6-1-1) and Rice (1924-27; 14-18-3)

The namesake of college football's most revered individual award won 186 games in 37 seasons at eight different schools. His best work was at Georgia Tech from 1915 to '17, when his teams had three straight unbeaten seasons. His 1917 team went 9-0 and outscored opponents 491-17.
Quote:150. Bill Yeoman, 160-108-8
Houston (1962-86)

Yes, Yeoman practically built Houston into the successful program it is today {edit: with a big hand from Rice, who got them into the SWC--thanks, Coogs for not reciprocating us out of CUSA}, winning 160 games, including four Southwest Conference titles and four top-10 finishes, in 25 seasons. But he has another, perhaps more indelible distinction: He invented the veer formation, which is the bedrock of option-based offenses today.


nope...Jess Neely didn't make the list. That's a shame:

Neely compiled a career college football record of 207–176–19. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as a coach in 1971.

Neely was also the head baseball coach at the University of Alabama (1929–1930), at Clemson (1932–1938) and at Rice (1945 and 1948), tallying a career college baseball mark of 109–108–5.
