Speaking of Canadian football, Canada Prep Academy in St. Catherines has a young guy (Neville Gallimore) with a few offers; if you can see him, you'll enjoy.

Wow, that kid has some serious offers. If he is getting that level of interest while playing in Canada he must be legit. There's always been talent in Canada but it's typically overlooked by US coaches. He must have really turned some heads to get so many programs to take a trip north of the border to get a look. It's too bad we aren't on his list of offers. I guess we only offer kids that nobody else has ever seen before.

I want to add to this: Whatever happened to our Canadian pipelines? The only kid I have heard of in recent years coming from Canada is Chris Merchant. Years ago we had a bunch of Canadian kids (especially linemen) and it seemed like we were setting up some pretty good pipelines into the program. Anyone know why we seemed to get away from that? Especially since it seems Canadian recruiting is starting to pick up elsewhere.

So far this year we haev dev lamore...

Cameron Skipworth is a defensive back from Charles W. Baker High School in Baldwinsville, NY and Jacob Herbers is a punter from Lakeview high school in Battle Creek Michigan.

As far as I've been able to ascertain of the three only Stanback had another FBS offer, he had an offer from Army.

Former UB defensive lineman is now interim co-head coach of McGill University in Montreal.

Good, McGill seems to be one of the better programs up there....

I would hate to see what one of the bad programs in Canada is.  McGill is 0-4 and has been outscored 197-48 so far this season.

I might be thinking back to the 90's...

I also had a few different people come up to me at work and say "how about that Branden Oliver?". He was the talk of the town for the millions of people who play fantasy football.

As someone who does not believe in fantasy sports.

What you mean you don't believe they exist? Like Santa... now I have said too much...

Heck, all you need to do to start is cut back on the 'media timeouts'.  There are enough natural stoppages of play to allow for their commercials as it is, they don't need to create new ones.

I've played soccer my whole life, I've started to find it difficult to watch football on TV.  There's a commercial break every couple plays, I end up changing the channel and forgetting about the game for 20 minutes.  Boring as hell.

Plus it gives that guy on the microphone in front of True Blue more chances to "entertain".

Agreed... You could squeeze in a 45 second spot between possessions...

I have a major bone to pick that I think needs to be pointed out and addressed by the NCAA.

If we're going to be relegated to the "Group of 5" and separated as a second tier below the "Power 5", then why is the FCS still getting preferential treatment when it comes to allowing FBS transfers to play immediately? Currently the rule says that if a kid transfers out of an FBS school then he can transfer to another FBS but he'll have to sit out a year before being allowed to play, or go to an FCS school and play immediately. That means if a kid is leaving Alabama for whatever reason his choices are to go to Buffalo where he'll have to sit out a season, or go to Albany where he can play immediately. It's half the reason the FCS is so competitive with the G5 conferences. Just look at Stony Brook's roster, Duquesne's roster, Albany's roster. Some of their best players are all transfers from FBS schools.

This was originally put in place to help the FCS compete. Now it's just an unfair advantage that screws over the G5. End it!

**************************************************************************************************************************
The following post below is my opinion, don't sue me.
**************************************************************************************************************************

First of all we shouldn't even have FCS and FBS it all should be Division I, II and III not I-A and I-AA in my opinion. Second there is no P5 and G5 that is made up by media and some college football fans when reality all FBS schools are FBS today only because some in the NCAA are trying to get around anti trust so the top schools can keep most of the television money it is a corrupt system in my opinion. And since all schools are FBS all schools should share equally in the college football television money like the NFL does in my opinion. We don't have in the NFL Buffalo and Cleveland only gets this while Dallas and New York line there pockets with television money in the NFL. Only in FBS college football do we have a corrupt sharing system like this that to me goes against US anti trust it gives certain schools a huge competitive advantage which can be used for facilities upgrades which then affects recruiting in a haves and have not system in my opinion.

A city like Syracuse smaller then Buffalo UB with not that great of academics that cheats let's tell it like it is they cheat shouldn't get all the money and UB gets peanuts that is the real problem with FBS college athletics today because if your a heritage program like Syracuse there in but for UB or even a UNC-Charlotte or Cincinnati which are all bigger then Syracuse there is no direct way to join that top five FBS conference club that gets most of the television money that is corrupt there is no getting around that in my opinion.

There should be a system where a school if it desires to join that top tier of college football can do so through ticket sales and community sponsorship money a certain dollar level then a school can move up in my opinion. My point UB could sellout 70,000 at Ralph Wilson Stadium with millions in sponsor dollars locally for decades and still not get in even if we are winning National Championships like UConn that is the problem with this present system it goes against competition and US anti trust laws in my opinion. Regardless of the nonsense some say that it doesn't it does UConn is a perfect example being screwed by this system so what is the point changing a FCS rule the real problem is the whole present system for dividing college football television between conference and national television networks are in bed with these top five conference that needs to be looked at by congress with US anti trust see what I am saying in my opinion. Let's Go Buffalo

You have this backwards.  The current TV system is because the old NCAA system was the one that violated the anti-trust laws.

For the last nearly 35 years the NCAA has had no control over TV money or rights.

Who owns the contract for March Madness?

That's an excellent point.

If it is specifically against University rules, then how was True Blue able to hold Reggieville campoyts back in the day?

The Policy is two years old..
I imagine its fallout from Occupy Wall Street.... thanks Governor Cuomo.

Look you all know I'm like the last guy to defend Cuomo but if this policy is in response to OWS lets first point fingers at the folks defecating on police cars and creating an Atmoshpere where "rape free tents" had to be erected.
I'll put aside the fact my scrawny 17 year nephew was arrested and held for about a day without his parents even being notified for a day for doing nothing more than delivering food to Zuccotti Park (he wasn't even a part of it at that point). I'll put aside that he and my sister in law and brother in law subsequently got involved are still involved with the movement and I can tell you that whatever propaganda you have read about it is not representative of what really went on there.

Ok so you're saying that there were not sexual assaults and that there was not a special "womens only tent" set up as a response. Or that litter in the park was not a problem?

Quote
My point is the restrictions on civil liberties suck whether its demonstrating against inequality or supporting your team.

In the case of Cuomo you can't elect a big governmnet official without, you know, getting big government. They come from both parties but when people do start doing some of the things which were seen at OWS the reaction will be the same.

I Know it was not the beleivers there causing the issue but as always in life it only takes a few knucklheads to ruin it for everyone..
