Big 12 coaches discuss adding injury report

 

Apr 30, 2019

Associated Press

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Big 12 coaches are discussing the implementation of a standardized conference-wide injury report, but they would prefer some type of national uniformity.

The Big 12 is among six FBS conferences holding spring meetings at the same resort hotel in Arizona this week. The American Football Coaches Association also met this week.

Introducing NFL-style injury reports to college football has become more likely in the past year as legal wagering on sporting events has become more prevalent. Still, it's a long way from becoming a reality.

Currently, the sharing of information about injured players varies from school to school. A Supreme Court decision last year opened the door for states to implement sports gambling. Eight states have jumped in with some form of legal sports wagering.

Texas coach Tom Herman says the conference wants to be prepared for a national movement toward injury reports.

"I just want it to be unified," Herman said Tuesday. "I think the whole AFCA, everybody would have to be on the same page." Even within the Big 12, coaches take a wide-range of approaches when it comes to transparency about injuries.

Baylor coach Matt Rhule said as long as an injury report doesn't not conflict with federal patient and student privacy law he is OK with providing status reports on injured players.

"I want to give the media and the fans the best information, but I want to make sure I'm doing it the right way," Rhule said.

With legalized wagering spreading, the concern is injury information could become a commodity for gamblers looking to gain an advantage. An injury report ostensibly puts it all above board, though even in the NFL coaches can be less than forthright.

"I think it's a grander college football, AFCA, conference commissioners issue," Rhule said. "I think as coaches we're always wired to not give away stuff. But I think it has to be a bigger conversation."

AFAC executive director Todd Berry said it's probably time for some national guidelines for injury reporting in college football, even if coaches can avoid detailing specific injuries and use vague terms such as lower body and upper body.

"I'm concerned without having some kind of national consistency we're maybe doing ourselves a disservice," Berry said.

Well it should be $13 because none of the $1 or $2 teams are making it

Who would you take?

Bama, Clemson, LSU, and... Wisconsin, since they appear to be free.

The best buy is ND. Now I hate ND, but they get a lot of fucking love. At $3, it's a bargain.

I'll go homer and take Texas at $4.

To stay in budget I'll take LSU and Tree.

That is $11. I would see if I could get Sparty for $1.

And I wouldn't win shit.

Edit - and since we are dealing with pipe dreams and perfect worlds.

I'd pick Tree v Michigan in one bracket and Texas v Bama in another.

3 Universities where you actually have to play school to attend and Texas curb stomps Bama for a rematch of the Rose Bowl Michigan and Texas with Texas in Storm Troopers and Michigan in home.

The two best looking uniforms in college football, with the two most recognizable helmets. Not to mention two of the stories and winningest programs in college football history. When they came in the field in that game it was an amazing sight to behold.

Again, never fucking happen, but I can fantasize.

Do any of the online sites offer full year wagers?

Nebraska is a 6/1 favorite to make the CFB playoff? Holy hell. What does Vegas know about Nebraska that I don't? I know they're coming off a bad season but they expect to improve that much?!

I see value in the three Pac-12 north teams: Oregon at 8/1, Washington at 10/1, and Stanford at over 20/1 (not listed). The former two will be better than most of their schedules by default and Oregon, especially, will get a lot of hype when they beat Auburn. Stanford has a really tough schedule but they're a lock if they're even a one-loss team, worth a flyer at the kind of odds they are apparently getting.

 

Texas at 5/1 is a bit too generous but Nebraska at 6/1 is lulz worthy.

They finished a lot stronger than they started, and they are a darling sleeper on a lot of cfb preview lists. 

That said, I don't see them making that kind of jump.
