LAMM AT LARGE: Love/Hate relationship with college football

todaySeptember 30, 2021

Background
I love college football. I hate college football.
When college football is at its best, its great. But  college football is at its worse, it sucks. I’m not talking about the quality of the teams. I’m talking about scheduling.
Last week, there were five nonconference games with a combined score of 321-21. Why is Pitt playing New Hampshire (77-7), Ohio State playing Akron (59-7), Miami playing Central Connecticut (69-0), Coastal Carolina playing UMass (53-3) and Alabama playing Southern Miss  (63-14)? Writing a big check and getting a guaranteed victory isn’t sport..
There isn’t anything that can be done about conference games like Georgia beating Vanderbilt (62-0) and Texas routing Texas Tech (70-35), but nonconference games should be against teams with equal resources.

That got me to thinking: exactly how bad have the Jaguars drafted since 2000? Concentrating only on top 10 picks, they have had an incredible 16 such picks over the last two decades. They should have laid a foundation for success. […]

Apologies are demanded. Butt-kissing is encouraged. The Celtics' Enes Kanter recently spoke out against China for treatment of Tibetans. That prompted […]

LAMM AT LARGE: Gators are a badly coached team

I've never claimed to be a coach or as smart as the men who coach for a living. But I've been around long enough to know good and bad coaching when I see it. The Gators have been a badly coached team this season, losing two games when I thought […]
