Although I have been known to say, "Go Cocks!" unironically (and still refer to it as USC until I remember that most people think that USC is the Trojans, not the Cocks), my college team is the Terriers.

When one's team is called the Terriers, it's difficult to engage most people in college football discussions, even if they're a powerhouse in the Southern Conference. "Woof-erd? Woe-ford?"

Clemson sucks, though.

When living in Dallas, I did get some small amusement out of seeing someone in maroon or burnt orange and saying "Hook'm Aggies!" or "Gig'm Horns!", respectively.

That's pretty much the extent of my college football knowledge/experience.

Related to the thread title: why do we go through this yearly ritual with ranking Georgia so highly? And was the SEC West's performance so great last year that an 8-5 Auburn should be preseason ranked?

I'm hoping the ACC gets cut out of the playoffs as they so richly deserved to be last year.

Rankings r stoopid and should never actually matter for anything ever. You can be a great team with a shit schedule. You can be a shitty team with s shitty schedule. Can't tell the difference, but man people sure bloviate about how you can.

BU? They have a terrier as a mascot. My sister graduated from there. "We'll yip you to death!" she used to joke. I'm not sure if a mascot ever factored prominently into someone's decision to not attend a college but if it did it probably happened to BU.

Since we're talking mascots, I went to a Lutheran school that had a Crusader for a mascot. So ok first we're Lutheran but ok let him live. But when I was there we switched from a proper Teutonic knight to this piece of shit:

Wofford. But my roommate's brother went to BU in one of the most tragic alignments of mascot synergy since the two USCs chose 'Trojans' and 'Cocks'.

The government or its agents (in this case the football coach) can't restrict your speech or punish you for speech.

Mo is, of course, correct in principle, but what's the remedy? The feds can't force a coach to play a player and whatever judgement such a player could get would probably be small change compared to what he hopes to earn in the NFL.

This is another example of how the NCAA divides and conquers its chattel, er, players. If they unionized effectively, the NCAA couldn't treat them like crap, but until that happens or the lawsuits from brain damage start really putting a bite into profits, it's just going to be business as usual. Coach says no tweeting, that's the end of the conversation.

All it takes is some end of the bench/practice squad schmoe that's a social media maven getting punished and suing the coach. Nothing but upside there.

What do you mean by punished?
Do you mean expelled from school? Yeah that won't fly.
Do you mean cut from the team (and scholarship)? Maybe he finds a lawyer that will take the case. If the school backs the coach he loses.
Do you mean he runs laps all through practice and rides the pine on Saturday? LOL you so funny.
Do you mean a couple of first stringers meat him in his dorm room and have a "heart to heart"? I don't know what you're talking about.

I imagine that being on the football team is still Ass City for benchwarmers at a D1 school, So I'd be surprised they'd sue.

I bet there would be a significant enough proportion cheering on the student. Also, there's nothing that says they have to do it during the season. Spring of senior year would be fine. Ed O'Bannon was a star in college and didn't sue until well after he graduated.
