Football discussion

A place to discuss MVFC, college and NFL football

Football discussion

Postby MoValley John » October 28th, 2012, 3:21 pm

Can someone explain why there has been next to zero football discussion on this board? No NFL, BCS, MVFC, nothing??? It is football season, right?
There are three rules that I live by, never get less than 12 hours sleep, never gamble with a guy who has the same first name as a city and never get involved with a chick with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Stick to that and everything else is gravy!

I'm guessing that any posters here that are football fans have better places to discuss football. Where there aren't as many "basketball only" snobs who do nothing but rag on football. Or at least rag on FCS football.

Or at least that's why I never bother discussing football on here.

This IS the forum for your level of football. I, nor many other BCS football snobs are going to berate anyone for discussing football on the proper forum. When football discussions spill over to the basketball side, prepare for the worst, though.

I don't follow fcs, 1-aa or whatever they are calling it this week. That said, sometimes I like to read the football board here just to see what is happening with schools in the conference and what is driving discussion. I can't do that when nobody is saying anything.

I'm up for some football talk. Can't offer much in terms of MVC football but college and pro work for me. Here's a starter- Nebraska needs to ax Pelini. Discuss.

I don't bother following the measly Big "Ten". The only league worth paying attention to is the SEC :dance:

Indiana State fans don't seem to exist here. Same can be said for SIU with 1 or 2 exceptions. Illinois State is doing alright, Missouri State is doing better by their standards but are still average at best and UNI is finding creative ways to lose in the wake of inexperience and injuries following their brutal opening to their season. Of the 5 "normal" MVC teams they are all average MVFC teams this year and their is very little to talk about. Any football talk is left to our respective boards or others. Very few of the regular MVCFans posters probably care about how the football season is going. Frankly I'm glad I have a place to escape the football season.

Ain't that the truth. The Big Rusty is just terrible. Hasn't been relevent in many years. Pac-12, Big 12, and SEC are very exciting however. Hoping K-State can play Notre Dame for all the marbles.

Or we could chat about conferences where players don't get paid.

If somebody got paid they wouldn't be eligible. The NCAA has pretty clear rules on that. If this is in reference to Cam Newton, the NCAA cleared Auburn of anything.

It is fairly well known that cheating (paying players) is rampant in the SEC.

If it was rampant don't you think there would be more schools on probation?

Yet the condescendingly arrogant and lily white Big Ten has two of their supposed juggernauts on probation. Seems like they should be getting more bad press than the SEC or Big 12.

The Big 10 is a football joke and they've been totally exposed.
