College football 2023 thread

The Iron Bowl has been ridiculously entertaining so far.

Alabama just got very fortunate there. Georgia must be licking their chops watching this.

Which one of you guys told me that Auburn had a chance in this one? Come up and take a bow.

The Iron Bowl is almost always full of twists and turns which make every game entertaining. Bama usually wins but the game is closely contested. AU is known to pull out wins when given no shot. I'm an AU Vet. School graduate but the rest of my family are staunch Bama supporters and have been since Bart Starr. I'm a fan of both teams but do love an AU victory when they happen. Bama fans know they were very "fortunate" last night.

Auburn had a great opportunity at the end to win this one but let Bama off the hook by allowing that long TD pass on 4th and goal for Bama from like 30 yds out. Smart play call but still lucky. GA will run roughshod all day long over Bama based on this game but GA - Bama is another game where you can throw out team records once the play begins. It's easy to say GA should win because of better players but that's not always what happens.

Ten one million dollars offered,
Never knew this was happening.
Is any of that from state tax revenues?
Or advancement of NIL money?
Not that I know where the MIL money comes from.

USC paid Caleb Williams $4M to play this year.

I don’t believe tax revenues are involved in any way. Most of it comes from donors/boosters and part comes from advertising deals.

That whole debate was poorly framed by the sports media. They made it out to appear like players would be getting paid directly by the universities on top of getting scholarships, which I opposed (as did many). I don’t oppose the players getting paid for their name, image, and likeness by the free market, though.

Nope. It's all from boosters and companies that use their Name, Image and Likeness.
