Jalen Hurts looks soooo slow running shit in practices. I'm glad I didn't actually put money on him winning the Heisman.

We probably already posted it at some point, but new rules for 2019 were released. Two more interesting ones:

- Starting with a 5th OT, teams will get one play from the 3 yard line to score, basically a 2 pt conversion from 5OT on. OTs 1-4 remain unchanged.

- All targeting fouls will be reviewed (same) but instead of deciding if there is enough evidence to overturn, replay officials will have to decide if there is enough evidence to support the call on the field. Will likely mean less players kicked out.

Yeah first one to me is whatever, it's dumb but I hope I don't have a 5OT game.

The second one is common sense and should have been the rule from the start.

after last year's 7 OT game, I would be fine with it because it might prevent it from lasting much longer than the 5th OT.

We don't need games going that long.

Counter point, 7 overtime games are fun and this wouldn't even necessarily shorten then.

Yeah I love college football OT and like watching multiple OT games for other teams, I just don't want Iowa in one so I won't be emotionally invested in how it's determined.

Would have been more fun if they said one play from the 5 or like 2 plays from the 10. Going for a TD/2 pt conversion from the 3 every time is boring and there's no more strategy.

Or really if they wanted to change anything to make games end quicker in OT, just make going for 2 mandatory right away in the first OT. I wouldn't mind that at all.

Annual reminder that the NCAA is a trash organization and in all reality should be disbanded.

I love that he wasn't given the waiver but fucking Justin Fields and Tathan were. What a bunch of morally corrupt assholes.

Dylan Moses has reportedly torn his ACL. Hit to the Alabama defense.

He fell a few miles outside of the arbitrary 100 mile rule, his mom was "getting better" according to the NCAA medical experts, and she didn't quit/retire from teaching so her condition must not have been serious.

Pure garbage and I hope either this or a case soon is serious enough and high profile enough to take them to court.

they'll be fine.

they flipped that LB kid from Louisiana from coming to A&M, which sucked, but I think he's supposed to be starting now.

No one appreciates that Jim Harbaugh isn’t the only coach in the big ten with an NFC title.

One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just doesn't belong...
