I know this is going to cause some controversy, but does anyone think that Autism has been severely over-diagnosed throughout the last 10 years or so? Kind of like ADD or ADHD. Maybe it's just me, but it seems like 7 of 10 kids these days have some some kind of "disorder". I realize with advances ...

I think you're starting to see more and more "in demand" coaches stay at their current school (although they do leverage their position to get long extensions and big raises). You can't tell me that Sharkisain (sp?) was USC's 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th choice, and that's a program rich in history, succe...

AU is better than LSU right now. They did run the same play over and over, but when that play presents a defense with three different options to defend every time it can be tough to stop. Plus they go at a pace which makes it impossible to substitute. Just a hard offense to defend.
Also, AU's ...

That's the problem. You're not going to get ranked by losing, even if it was to good teams.

this is a pro sport
So is Major League Baseball and it happens all the time. For instance, if Sproles is banged up, sit him in the 4th. No use losing him for future games in a game you aren't going to win. Obviously you can't put in an entire 2nd team with a 53 man roster, but...

Just like in baseball sometimes it very clear that it isn't your day and you just have to take your ass-kicking. Do the Saints start to sub out some gimpy players to make sure they're available for Carolina? Regardless of what happened tonight, that game was/is going to be much more important. The i...

UF is a great program which has no business going 4-8 and having an offense which is completely devoid of talent in the offensive skill positions.
