College ADs cower in the presence of coaching super-agent Jimmy Sexton | Commentary

Who do you think is the most powerful person in college football? SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey? Big Ten Commissioner Tony Petitti? NCAA President Charlie Baker? College Football Playoff Executive Director Bill Hancock? Influential ESPN commentator Paul Finebaum? Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong and wrong. You’re not even close. It’s college football coaching super-agent Jimmy Sexton, the man who has literally and legally convinced college athletic directors to sign away mega-millions, if not billions of dollars, in one-sided coaching contracts to his grateful clients over the years. Sports agent Jimmy...

If FSU and other college stars are getting paid, then they should play in bowl games | Commentary

With apologies to the the legendary Simon & Garfunkel and their iconic song Mrs. Robinson: “Where have you gone, Charlie Wysocki? A college football nation turns its lonely eyes to you — woo, woo, woo.” As I sat in the press box for the Cheez-It Citrus Bowl matchup Monday between Iowa and Tennessee, I thought back to the first bowl game I ever attended in this same stadium more than four decades ago. I was a wide-eyed teenager as I excitedly watched the Charley Pell-coached Florida Gators play the Jerry Claiborne-coached Maryland Terrapins in the 1980 Tangerine Bowl. I don’t remember a whole...

College Football Playoff Committee: ‘Undefeated ’72 Dolphins don’t pass our eye test’ | Commentary

Running off at the typewriter. … Breaking news: The College Football Playoff Committee has reconvened and has unilaterally decided to go back in time and strip the undefeated 1972 Miami Dolphins of their perfect season and Super Bowl championship. “In hindsight,” CFB Playoff Chairman Boob Corrigan says, “the ’72 Dolphins, much like this year’s Florida State team, were just not the same after quarterback Bob Griese broke his leg and was replaced by aging backup Earl Morrall.” But, Mr. Corrigan, even though the Dolphins were in the bottom half of the league in passing offense back then, they went...

FSU QB Tate Rodemaker’s status uncertain

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Already down star quarterback Jordan Travis, Florida State might be without his successor, too, when the No. 4 Seminoles play No. 15 Louisville in Saturday’s ACC championship. Tate Rodemaker will be a game-time decision, the Seminoles said Friday, opening the possibility that true freshman Brock Glenn could start. Rodemaker took a hit to the head on a targeting penalty in the second half of last week’s win at Florida. Coach Mike Norvell said during Friday’s ACC championship game news conference that Rodemaker was evaluated on the sideline and cleared to return. On Sunday, Rodemaker...
