alternate headline: man does job
http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/10273908/acc-commissioner-john-swofford-favors-title-game-qualifying-redoIf NCAA legislation was adopted to modify the current restrictions there might not be a B1G East or West division or an ACC Coastal and Atlantic. Of course the conferences would have to adapt this strategy but, John Swofford of the ACC is already for it. He is stating greater scheduling flexibility and autonomy. How would a fair schedule be devised with 14 teams over the years? Is this a ploy to get multiple teams from your conference in the playoffs? I wonder how many conference Commissioners are in favor?
Nuss pretty much stated it flat out in the conference. "Heck, Daryl, Dan and Fred" mentioned specifically as being a "great staff". They get one year to prove themsleves. I am going to go ahead and guess there isnt going to be a harder working coach than Funk this year.
MOD EDIT: I will leave the OP to edit the body of this, but yeah, the title was misleading as nothing definitive was said regarding this. He said something more to the effect that he was excited to work with the current staff, but whether that staff remains current once he gets going as OC is another matter. - LSA
UF got a commitment from 4 star RB Brandon Powell today. He is from Denard's backyard in Deerfield Beach. This could help Michigan's chances with UA Game MVP RB Jeff Jones who is visiting in a couple of weeks.
Not sure if this is talked before. After Watching Oklahoma's dominant DL performance over Alabama's OL and our DL's regression this year. Oklahoma fans are very happy about that hire, and their DL has improved significantly this year. This make me wonder the effect of Montgomery's departure. When he left, most people believed this is minimum since our HC and DC were both DLine coach. But the result in 2013 doesn't say that, our DL performance was not up to standard. Our LB performance, seems to me, also regressed from last year when Mattison was the LB coach. Any thought?
