  3. Valdosta State vs Ferris State

    Hire Tony Annese. After the present regime bites the dust. Provided he's still available and wants to move. See: Problem solved.
  4. Re: "Time to reset things here"

    Well, the mods wouldn't allow a direct reply, so here goes. This line of reasoning has some good points. There is no justification for directly abusing either coaches or players in the terms the post mentions. However … This is also a chilling of speech here. Every now and then - like, say...
  5. Not a bad idea. Especially for some teams we know …

    See: https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/32077089/proof-vaccination-negative-covid-19-pcr-test-required-enter-tiger-stadium As the story says, I was surprised that LSU, of all places, would take the lead on this. I know Kemp's orders on this might seem to prevail, but public...
  9. Ok, this is about soccer, but …

    It tells us a lot about football too. See: https://stumblingandmumbling.typepad.com/stumbling_and_mumbling/2020/07/what-football-teaches-us.html Yeah. A lot of the time we look at recruiting rankings and think that's the end of the story. But you can have great recruiting, year upon year, and...
  10. The Last Supper

    It's well known that Leonardo's The Last Supper has deteriorated beyond repair. The original fresco was painted, for reasons known only to Leonardo and God, on a dry surface and has been flaking away ever since. Clumsy restoration efforts haven't helped. However - and I didn't know this -...
  11. Financing the site

    I know there isn't any advertising at the Swarm. But I don't know how the site is financed. What I do know is that I want to keep it up and running. Soooooo … Mods, if there are financial problems down the road, let us (I'm assuming that most everybody would be on board for this) know and we'll...

  16. Attention Mods!

    I don't see a place to report something like this, so I'm putting it here. For the second time while I was making a reply to a post on the football forum, my computer was assaulted by a malware application called ManagePages 1.0. The application downloaded without any prompt by me and installed...

    See: http://www.lawyersgunsmoneyblog.com/2019/09/california-might-pass-law-ending-rules-that-are-indefensible-even-by-ncaa-standards I believe that the new law will pass and that others like it will follow soon after. Given the amount of money college sports now generate, this was about as...
  18. Ye Olde Question: What will be the first offensive play on Thursday?

    Nobody else has brought up this old chestnut yet, so I'll start. I think it will be a post to Brown. If I was Coach, the first read I'd want from the Tigger D is if they have anybody who can keep pace with Brown. If we spring him or come close, the game gets a lot different right off the bat...
  19. A data driven perspective on transfers

    True, this is only for QBs, but I thought the list might find it interesting. My guess = the impact of transfers at other positions might be about the same. Too bad these guys didn't do something more general. See...

    I report … you decide. See: http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/08/dabo-swinney-and-the-college-football-championship-ring.html I don't know if I think Dabo is a new Bear Bryant, but, given all the fanboy posts about him and Clemson here, I thought another perspective might be in order. And...
