Allow players to leave sans penalty when coach leaves?

Here’s a topic that is certain to get some reaction: Should student-athletes be able to transfer without penalty when their head coach leaves? That was the topic presented to BTN analysts Stanley Jackson and Stephen Bardo on Wednesday night’s #BTNLive, and their responses were very interesting. Watch the segment in this post.

DiNardo: 'Why can't Michigan play Ohio State in September?'

Michigan State and Auburn both started the season unranked and went on to go 12-1 and win their respective conferences. So, why did the Tigers get the BCS title game bid over the Spartans? Other than the fact they play in the SEC, of course? Gerry DiNardo said on Tuesday’s #BTNLive that it has to do with how the Big Ten schedules. DiNardo’s recommendation? Play more big-time September night games. Watch the segment here.

Reports indicate there will be more NFL executives pursuing O’Brien this offseason. And the fact O’Brien recently had the NFL buyout in his contract lowered only fuels that notion. Watch our interview with SI’s Pete Thamel discussing O’Brien’s future above and see our team’s thoughts below.
