Mo’ money, SEC-style

Another year when nobody in the conference will be missing any meals.

You should take this as proof they’re still the smartest guys in the room.  They do.

    I’m guessing our travel expenses for the Sugar Bowl were basically nil since we never showed up.

          Did she consider it a “meaningless bowl” as well? What I figured. She should be very proud about them getting there, but especially how Orlando took our offensive line to the woodshed. I can believe we had let downs at many positions, but I have never seen an OL take a game off, I think they just got whipped…and we never got it figured out. Yeah, we had a couple of guys out, or limping, but that had been the case since late September.

          Don’t know if they are back to being a Top 10 regular, but they have made major strides from where they were the last 10 years. I expected a little more offensive firepower from them on New Year’s Day, but Herman has never been doubted as an offensive guy, so I would say the Horns and Sooners are going to have some very important games in Dallas the next few years….and maybe again late in the season.

      That will be another way to waste it. Neither players, nor staff, need additional benefits for what they do. Now buying some additional coverage for injured players could be something everyone agrees on.

  5. Now I understand why Missouri is fighting the bowl ban – from USA Today

    The SEC’s per-school revenue distributions for fiscal 2018 were impacted by Mississippi’s postseason ban. According SEC spokesman Herb Vincent and the conference’s rules, that meant 50% of the postseason football revenue that would have been designated for Mississippi was distributed to the other 13 schools. The other 50% was placed in escrow and can be distributed to Mississippi if it does not have a major rules violation over a five-year period.

    Based on 85 scholarship players that’s $500 K per player – surely they can afford paying them a little. I know that is simple math as there are other scholarship athletes besides football but still…………….
