    Babers’s best from the ESPN Coaches’ Film Room (TNIAAM; Castillo)

    As you’re already aware, Syracuse Orange football coach Dino Babers was in attendane at the ESPN Coaches’ Film Room last night. The broadcast, which aired on ESPNEWS, followed the game along with six FBS coaches. Along with Babers, other attendees included Steve Addazio (Boston College), Dave Doeren (NC State), Mike McIntyre (Colorado), Matt Rhule (Baylor) and Kelani Sitake (BYU). At halftime, most folks had a sense of the room, and the “power rankings” largely stayed intact afterward:



    Rhule, who had a prime seat right in front of the camera, was positioned well to guide the proceedings, and did so while remaining good-humored too. Babers was seated right next to him, and the back-and-forth between the two offensive-minded coaches stole the show at various points. McIntyre, also seated on their side, was a similarly engaging personality throughout.

    On the opposite side of the table, the other three were a bit more reserved, though Addazio did attempt to use his own seat (at the front) to be more vocal. Sitake was quieter, as was Doeren, whose top contribution may have been blowing his nose into a hot mic in the second half.

    As for Babers, when he wasn’t noting that BYU’s linemen are older than everyone else’s (Cougars players go on two-year faith-based missions before suiting up), he was anxious for both Alabama and Clemson to push the tempo. His best quote may have come in the closing minutes:

    Syracuse Football: Ryan Nassib To Jacksonville Is Happening (Insidetheloudhouse.com; Edson Jr)

    Former Syracuse football star, Ryan Nassib, is a pending free agent. It makes too much sense not to follow the Orange path to Jacksonville.

    We talked about the Syracuse reunion going on in Jacksonville yesterday (which you can read below). That conversation leads us to point number two.

    What are the chances that both Tom Coughlin and Doug Marrone, former SU standouts, would both end up in Jacksonville.

    The wealthiest town in Central New York isn't Skaneateles or Manlius; It's this rural farm town (PS; Baker)

    POMPEY, N.Y. -- The wealthiest town in Central New York isn't Skaneateles. It isn't Manlius. It isn't Lysander.

    It's the farm-laden rural expanse of Pompey, the largest and least densely populated town in Onondaga County.

    According to recent figures from the U.S. Census Bureau, the Town of Pompey has the highest median income in the region. The median household income is $98,849 -- nearly $10,000 more than in Skaneateles.

    Some attribute the wealth to low taxes and a country lifestyle. But numbers point to a pair of high-income neighborhoods just on the edge of town. Thanks to some overlapping borders, residents in those neighborhoods can pay Pompey town taxes (some of the lowest in the state) while sending their kids to Fayetteville-Manlius schools (some of the best in the state).

    "What makes the concept intriguing is it targets a previously untapped talent base: players who currently have no option to play for pay because the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement bars them from the league.

    Plenty of players would still choose the glory of the college game and the four-year education that comes with it."

    So maybe some of those kids that are talented but can't qualify for college or don't want to go to college and see this as a way to make money and get a shot at the NFL ?

    In a few years all web sites will be dumbed down to the point of being totally useless instead of mostly useless. At some point they need to realize that being responsive doesn't really make a site better. They need to decide what the audience is and not shoot for the lowest common denominator

    Props to the BC AD department for doing a good job.

    Anyone can schedule a power P5 school. The goal should be to schedule the worst possible P5 in an OOC game each season.

    When was the last time SU scheduled a tomato can P5 program in an OOC series?

    Let's schedule Kansas in 2023 and 2024 today.

    2025 Notre Dame
    ...
    ...
    2022 Notre Dame
    2021 Wisconsin
    2020 Wisconsin
    2019 Maryland
    2018 Notre Dame
    2017 LSU
    2016 Notre Dame
    2015 LSU
    2014 Notre Dame & Maryland (closer, but another fail)
    2013 Penn State & Northwestern
    2012 USC, Northwestern & Minnesota (closer but another fail)
    2011 USC & Wake Forest (ding ding ding)
    2010 Washington
    2009 Penn State, Northwestern & Minnesota
    2008 Penn State, Northwestern

    At least we aren't playing 3 P5 level schools OOC anymore.

    Sigh.

    I am more for use the correct device for the correct information. Its great you an use a phone to see stuff, but there is a reason people have big screen tvs.

    Mobile web is great but you dont design a content web site for the worst viewing platform.

    its like reading a newspaper vs looking at news on a web site..

    one you can see everything on a page in a quick burst, turn the page and so on..

    the other is scroll, scroll, scroll, scroll. click, back up scroll, scroll scroll, click click.

    95% of the content on a web site is never viewed even by people who would want to read it cause it cant be found.

    I design sites as a part of my business. I know this stuff.

    Responsive means the same info is on every platform because that's what the user expects. It's a worse experience to expect X to be on one and not the other. More and more people will not even have a "desktop" in the near future; some developing countries skip them altogether.

    It's not about best content for best environment. It's about all content for all people in all environments - good design can solve this and the "95%" problem too.

    Appealing to the lowest common denominator is an American tradition.

    I dont agree. if this was true then people wouldnt have bigger monitors as well.. Some content requires different display. Some things flow well when scaled down, some things dont..

    But I agree most of this is not a responsive design problem its a poor design problem. Sites are going for the least cost solution. Even the big boys like ESPN/CNN have dumbed down the sites so much they are useless in many way now. Responsive design has flaws too that most sites just ignore like huge scrolls list and things being too many clicks away, but hey its responsive it must be the way to do it.
