re: Odds to Win the NCAA Tournament--SEC Teams - profwilson
Not sure I follow your logic here. Just to be clear, these are odds to win the NCAA tournament, not the SEC tournament. Do you really think whether or not Kentucky drops a game in the remainder of the regular season and/or the SEC tournament will make a major difference in their likelihood of winn...

Odds to Win the NCAA Tournament--SEC Teams - profwilson
According to one on-line sports book (americasbookie.com), here are the odds at this point for various SEC teams to win the 2015 NCAA men's basketball tournament: Kentucky 1:1.75 Florida 100:1 Georgia 175:1 Arkansas 200:1 LSU 200:1 Ole Miss 250:1 No other SEC teams are listed. A few thin...

[quote]I just don't understand what the AP voters are seeing![/quote] Umm...maybe exactly what you are? [quote]I know we are not quite a top 25 team just yet[/quote] If the AP voters think exactly what you (and I) do--namely, that LSU is good, probably top 30-35, but not yet meriting a top-...

re: When do Baseball tickets go on sale with LSUtix.net? - profwilson
So how exactly does this work--is every seat in the stadium sold as a season ticket? If I will be in town for a weekend and would like to take my family (4 tickets) to a single game, am I just out of luck, or do they sell some at the box office day-of-game? I ask because I see few if any posted ...

[quote]Why do LSU fans pump sunshine up all over the Big 12 and PAC 12 when it comes to comparing with Bama, but otherwise dismisses them?[/quote] If LSU fans (or anyone else) dismiss the Big 12 and PAC 12 as conferences, they are idiots. The SEC is no doubt the strongest conference top-to-botto...

Perceptions of Alabama - profwilson
The general consensus among college football analysts and fans seems to be that Alabama is one of the top teams in the country--at least top 6, if not top 4 (or even the best team in the country, as Lou Holtz said this morning). I even tend to believe this myself. What, though, is the objective ca...

re: CFN says LSU hosed - profwilson
[quote]this is about audience ===> ratings ===> revenues [/quote] People like to say this, but it really doesn't make any sense in this context. What part of a ratings-based calculus would lead anyone to put two Mississippi schools in the top 4? They could easily have justified ranking Notre Da...

[quote]I really don't get why so many have their panties in a wad over this. I really don't.[/quote] I think people are concerned because it's not just the top 4 that matter. Rankings 1-12 are used for placement of teams in the major bowls--which matter for revenue, recruiting, and national perc...

CFN says LSU hosed - profwilson
According to Pete Fiutak of College Football News, LSU's ranking at #19 is the biggest mistake in the initial CFP rankings. [link=(http://cfn.scout.com/2/1474337.html)]CFP mistakes[/link] I agree with him that the disparity between Ole Miss at #4 and LSU at #19 is much too large (given that we...

re: Buy or sell: Loser of FSU vs. ND next week will not make the playoff - profwilson
Buy. Either team is out of the playoff with a loss. I know a lot of people think FSU could still get in because they are the defending champs, but who would they have beaten? One top-25 team (Oklahoma State) in the opening week, and MAYBE another in Clemson if they can hang onto their ranking (th...

re: NLRB regional says college football players can form union - profwilson
Yes, this is an absolutely terrible development. If you turn college athletes into employees rather than students, you are taking a big step down the road of severing any meaningful tie between them and the University. Drop the idea (sometimes strained--but not always) that college athletes are st...
