Don’t count on me, a devout Bama fan whose allegiance to the Crimson Tide started once I was knee-excessive to a grasshopper, to be dispassionate about tonight’s national championship recreation between my beloved boys from Tuscaloosa and the Clemson Tigers.
Southern Methodist University (ranked a hundred thirty five) at dwelling over 1-AA Stephen F. Austin, ranked 189, 31-23. SMU gets ink right here as a result of the Mustangs have been one of many worst groups in the nation lately (1-eleven final 12 months), and any victory ought to be recognized as a result of head coach June Jones had spectacular success at Hawaii earlier than bolting to SMU for more of all the things.

Of course, as the next publish tracks , water polo is likely one of the least equitable sports in all the NCAA.
And that’s a lot more than the average AD within the ACC most likely is aware of concerning the rights settlement, especially when some ADs and faculty presidents get pressed that they have no copy of the TV deal I’m prepared to wager that Wildhack has stable working knowledge of the deal, maybe second solely to ACC commissioner John Swofford since Swofford’s concern was one TV deal and Wildhack had a few hundred to look after when you add up every little thing ESPN has (then again, perhaps that is a draw back of Wildhack too).
