Default Did Bleacher Get it Wrong?

BR says that A&M's permanent rival is Missouri, not us.

I think they've got their facts wrong.

Yes, it is correct that we don't play the Aggies in 2013/14, but I thought it all went into motion the following season.

Anyone know which is right?

Default Re: Did Bleacher Get it Wrong?

It's not really a source. It's thousands of sources. Bleacher Report is a repository where anyone can submit a story, and it is published on the site. That's why the writing is often terrible. That's why there a numerous spelling and grammatical errors. That's why the site is called bleacher report, the reports actually come from the bleachers, i.e. fan submitted. That's why the links to that place aren't allowed on Cockytalk, the sources are often incorrect and unverified.

I lost all respect for Bleacher Report when they said Williams Brice was the 66th nice stadium in college football, and Memorial Stadium (Clemson) was the #1 nicest stadium.

...those new "permanent" games aren't happening next season. And it's not clear if Arkansas-Missouri and South Carolina-Texas A&M will become permanent starting in 2014 or if that will ever happen.

"That's possible they'll be permanent, but not definite," SEC Executive Associate Commissioner Mark Womack said.

...the change occurred due to the difficulty of finding a quality game for Texas A&M and Missouri on the final weekend. Instead, they'll play each other Nov. 30, 2013, meaning South Carolina and Arkansas resume their annual cross-divisional game they've played since 1992.

Sorry, but Bleacher Report moved off of this model a while back. All of their content creators are screened and selected based on competency. I've had the regional representatives for Bleacher Report come and speak to my journalism school to try and recruit us in this manner. The general CockyTalk opinion on Bleacher Report is outdated and wrong in a lot of aspects now.

I would welcome that improvement, but as recently as 3 months ago they had some lame fan boy writing about how Alshon was a "bust" because he had to have minor knee surgery. It was full of poor grammar, awful analysis, and a complete lack of any type of literary cohesion.

Bleacher Report isn't a sports website.

It's an ad server that uses a bunch of homers to publish link bait in the hopes that someone will click on one of their pop ups.

The business model may have changed but the errors have not. I see more errors on the Bleacher Report than on any site. I really can't take it serious. They should have some serious fact checkers there.

It's true. I don't think the quality of work has improved that much, but at least there's a standard now instead of allowing any idiot to come post whatever BS is on their minds.
