A good question for Will Wade. Do the MOCS have the full compliment of a roster to use CHAOS for an entire game ? Are they deep enough at every position ?
Stewwie, if 2 unseeded teams play the higher money bid hosts the game. .. ..the 4 team college playoff for FBS teams is NOT an official NCAA championship. The NCAA is not sponsoring or receiving any money from this. The only connection is you have to be an NCAA sanctioned school. the winner is the College Football Playoff Champion, not an NCAA champion
top 8 get byes and gauranteed home game for first game, every school including the top 8 have to submit bids before hand on each round. That is why even when Ga Southern was in playoffs as a 3 loss team one year they got all home games. Some schools in the playoffs dont even bid for a home game. Only 8 schools are seeded, the other games are placed as close to geography as possible. So the other 16 are not seeded.
Jay, what you have to understand is the hosting is determined by bidding ( money ) 3 of the top 8 teams have stadiums that hold less than 10,000 2 of the teams hold only 6500. the bidding process allows you to make money with approx 5,000-7,000. The Mocs are one of a handfull that can afford the large bids. . . .And jay, the SEC will not get 2 in. . . .and when im right please acknowledge me in December
the Mocs odds of hosting one game is 100% , 75% to host two games. What you have to understand is there are 3 teams in the top 8 FCS poll, that have STADIUMS that hold less than 10,000, much less have attendence that approaches 10,000. in the overall scheme the Mocs avr attendence of 10,500 puts them in the upper group in the FCS playoffs. . .. The SEC is only going to get one team in the four team playoffs. And i think that will be the way it will be 90% of the time. And, no this is not some ant-SEC bias. Remember this playoff is NOT an NCAA playoff, but a playoff put together by the Big 5 conferences and funded and maybe even controlled by TV MONEY. And remember THE TV MONEY rules. If you are the TV people who are shelling out this money you want teams from all parts of the country, face it, if half the teams were from the south, it doesnt help ratings. sure there may be a year where 2 SEC teams make it, but it will only be once in every 5 or 10 years. The LAST thing the TV people will want is 2 SEC teams from small markets like Alabama or even Tennessee . . ..
my guess is the CITY of Chattanooga is not as good of a sports town as we like to think . . .
You know, i have never seen Chaz Bono and Donnie Tyndall at the same time ? . . makes you wonder . . .
Dave Hart may have really blown this. How could you hire Tyndall, who got caught cheating at Morehead St. and now cheated at Southern Miss ? This could hurt Hart's chances of trying to get the #2 position at the SEC office, A job that he covets. UTK may be stuck with Hart. Which could be bad when Butchy Jones leaves for Michigan at the end of the season . . .
Winners- Chattanooga football, enough said. . . TimesFreePress showing some love to the Mocs with front page, must be nice to use front page to talk about a championship rather than a meaningless SEC regular season game. . . .Ohio State is going to sneak their way in the final four ( not that they deserve it ) Aaron Rodgers 6 first half TD passes...also Weeds and Hargis, home game made it much easier to read a map and get to the game . . .
Loser- Auburn snatching defeat from the jaws of victory TWICE in under 2 minutes . . .Donnie Scandal, er em Tyndall this is bad and going to get worse. how do you hire a guy with this type of baggage from 2 straight schools of NCAA problems. . .Dave Hart, for hiring Tyndall may hurt Hart's chances of getting the coveted #2 position at the SEC office that he is trying for. . .SEC football getting 2 teams in Final Four, Auburn loss hurts, Oregon win and Ohio St rise will make it very difficult for getting 2 teams in after Miss St and Bama eliminate each other . . .
Beg to differ with you brother on SoCon...but i still love ya brother, thats just what makes "horse racing" . .and thanks for matchup answer, great job . .. In football Appy lost to Mocs last year as well as lost to Citadel, Samford, and Furman. Appy would not have made playoffs if eligible with 4 conference losses. Ga Southern also had 4 conference losses to Furman, Samford,Wofford and Appy. And if you want to say they were not motivated, remember how they celebrated a last second victory over the Mocs last year. As far as basketball Appy and Ga Southern have 2 combined championships in 30 years. Losing Davidson hurts, but remember Davidson's SoCon run was during Mocs lean years. ETSU and Mercer ( remember they beat Duke in tourney ) will more than make up for those loses. And the resurgence of UTC with Wade, SoCon will have higher basketball RPI than last year . . .IF the Mocs lose to Wofford, and beat Tenn Tech and Furman they would still get in playoffs. . . .And Jay, did you get Weeds and Hargis a GPS or map , yet ?. . .and by the way, if you look it up neither Appy or Ga South redshirted any players other than freshman last year
