The best way to muffle the talking heads is to win games. If you think the Boston media is bad listen to the talking heads in the big five conferences. I watched the chief talking head of the SEC, Finebomb or Finephart, and his only comment on the Vandy game was how bad Vandy is, because they were almost beaten by UMass, he had to think for a minute about UMass, maybe because he doesn't know where it is. He's the consummate windbag.

This whole Power Five thing is going to bite a lot of BCS schools on the ass.

They really want to pare BCS down to about 30 schools. Make it a mini-NFL. So the next step is to get rid of Duke, Northwestern, Wake Forest etc. The goal is a giant TV contract split by about 30 schools.

Vanderbilt is already feeling it. There'll be more to come.
