Talking Bull: So you're saying there's a chance!

Bill Polian thinks we have a chance!

I have always thought Polian got something of a rough Deal with the Buffalo Bills, and perhaps with the Indianapolis Colts. The guy built two winning NFL programs virtually back to back, so it was nice to hear his thoughts on the Bulls.

"First of all, you have to have the commitment to do it," Polian said, comparing his early years with the Bills to this year's UB squad.

Buffalo was the butt of jokes on Johnny Carson and things of that nature, and we just said: 'No. This is not going to be the case.'"

6 gets you a Bowl.

Of course in College football these days 6 wins often gets you a bowl, and it looks like thats not going to change any time soon.

But if you want a Bowl Game with money

'Champions Bowl' Already Worth As Much Money As Rose Bowl - From Our Editors -
The SEC and Big 12 own themselves a bowl game that has yet to host a game or even select a city, and it's already worth as much TV money as the oldest, most-storied, and most-romanticized bowl.

Smartly done by the SEC and Big12. Many had thought the Big12 was on deaths door not too long ago, I was among them. The conference has secured a solid future and has far fewer mouths to feed than some of the other FBS conferences.

The MAC is not immune to sanations

Seven football and men's basketball players received improper financial aid and for that, received a year of probation. Of course, this is right about when Buffalo #$@!canned their football program so this just affected their basketball.
