DNA is just the data being read into a computer program and took over the program. Its an easy patch to fix the program, I imagine retooling the DNA to take advantage of another vulnerability is exceedingly difficult.

"To make up for these shortcomings now you're using your own cutoff and standards arbitrarily(why is top 10 the basis...why not top 25)"
 
Bet I can find a conversation between us from a few years back where I pointed out there were more big ten teams in the top 25 and you did a similar frothy reaction only you claimed anything past the top 10 was meangingless.
 
Also, don't get your capris in a knot, dude. The sec had a great run through the old "hype means everything" bcs system - they're sort of settling back to their natural state, but bama should still be good for a couple more years - hell, given the lack of competition in-conference, they should collect a ton of wins no problem.
 
Cheers.

their natural state(for most of my life at least up to now) has been to be the premiere conference in college football...there is the sec and everyone else.
 
As has been pointed out to you again and again, it's a trend decades and decades old now that will only continue to grow as demographics push it that way slowly. Look at the top 100, top 250 prospects each year...now look at where they are from. It's not rocket science...look at where the top 6-7 sec schools recruit in terms of rankings every year. The #6 sec team in any given year is typically #10 or #11 in the whole country. The #6 acc/bigten/pac12/big12 team is typically in the 40s or so....thats why you get what you get.
 
Look at the last 10+(heck even go back a little farther) national titles....even when the sec doesn't win, a school deep in the southeast does. tOSU is the one big outlier right now(really in all of college football) of a program that can be competitive with the dominance that is southeastern football...
 
The non-tosu bigten schools arent going to be competitive with the best southern school every year. Just not going to happen.
michael anderson <mianderson79@gmail.com>: Aug 10 11:20AM -0700

Furthermore alabama's competitors/wannabe peers every year are generally LSU, Auburn when they are good, Florida when they are good, Georgia when they are good, tOSU, and then teams like USC or Texas when they are good. Or FSU when they are good(like the opener this year). Or clemson if they have a special team and special qb the last couple years. It's basically whichever other power sec teams are up and then whichever other sun belt power tends to be way up(obviously not texas now). Alabama is not measuring themselves year by year against Michigan, Wisconsin, Oregon, Washington, Oklahoma State, Virginia Tech, etc....it's a nonissue. Thats what makes Harbaugh's trolling so absurd. Michigan needs to establish themselves at the top of the bigten before they start such talk.

What's telling is the part of my reply you skipped, Mr "why did you use the top ten".
 
Good run from the late 90s until a few years back, though. Losing miles is gonna hurt their competitiveness.

> What's telling is the part of my reply you skipped, Mr "why did you use the top ten".
 
as opposed to the top 12, top 5, top 15, top whatever....I didnt respond because it didn't seem like you had any point. I don't remember what I wrote then. If I was cherry picking then too, well...two wrongs dont make a right. Note I said if...I dont even remember what I wrote. Besides, preseason rankings have a lot more to do with coaches/writers sometimes ordering teams based on where they think they could finish. Wisconsin, for example, sure as hell wouldnt be favored on a neutral field against all but 8 teams....a lot of that is people looking at their schedule and seeing only 1 ranked team and thinking "hmmm, where are the losses...they may go 10-2 or better". I only see 1 team amongst that bunch with the potential to be very good. In the sec it wouldnt shock me if LSU or Auburn turns in a really big year.

ummm...thats going back almost 30 years. The trend will only continue based on what I wrote about players/demographic shifts/recruiting.

lmao...Miles had lsu underachieving based on their recruiting/talent. The head coaches now(Canada and Aranda are essentially co-head coaches, bozo is just there in name only) are going to be far superior.

Now you're seeing why it's pointless arguing with Press. It's like arguing with a brick wall. Facts don't matter to him. If you catch him in an error, he's not man enough to admit it, he just ignores that it's been pointed out.
 
He doesn't seem as if he knows much about football or cares to know more about football. He just perceives Kaepernick as another celebrity or liberal to bash. He probably saw a story about him on Daily Caller or Breitbart and he decided to spam it on here.
 
This is about the first time I can recall him actually discussing football in even an oblique way. He's just here for the political propaganda he can spew. I just checked the last 30 threads on RSFC and 16 were started by Press. Every single one is political/culture war stuff. He's just here to ram his politics down our throats.
 
I pointed out elsewhere that the 49ers defense gave up an NFL worst 480 points (30 points per game) last season and mentioned that Kaepernick didn't play defense. His response?

Because it's not relevant to you being wrong calling him 2-14.

If the doctor said that the patient will die in 3 years **without treatment** and, after treatment, the patient is still alive 5 years later, that's different. You have to allow for things like coal/oil electric plants being replaced by nuclear ones and cars with better fuel efficiency (and in major car states like California, requirements to reduce the emissions - any other states make you take your cars in for "smog checks" before you can get your registration renewed?), when explaining why global warning/climate change/whatever it's called this week isn't as bad as originally thought. In 1968, I remember a TV commercial that claimed the population of the USA would be double by 2000, but in part because of better birth control, we're still not at 400 million 17 years after the target date.

I went to a school that switched from one to the other while I was there. The difference is, "middle school" includes sixth grade, whereas "junior high school" starts at seventh. Other than the grades involved, they are the same thing. Are there any junior high/middle schools that do not include both seventh and eighth grades?
