Dan Wetzel makes his usual compelling case. If they just can't bring themselves to play them on campus where they belong, these games at the very least need to have a regional city that gets the bid if the Big 10 (as an example) gets a top 2 seed. As long as it is a city and stadium of "acceptable" size, it should be totally up to the conference. So if the Big Ten wanted to play it at Soldier Field as a home game for their participant to play a southern team it could.
The bowls can now be out doing what they do: ripping everyone off to subsidize profligate spending on parties. There is no good reason to include them at all.
The other great point offers a solution for many of the users on here who want to see Michigan play more non-conference home and homes during the season. All the playoff people need to do is adopt some formula that gives large weight to playing hard games. You'll get your road games at Florida State and Texas if that happens. Right now there is a disincentive to schedule hard under the current system.
Nebraska RB Aaron Green will be transferring from Nebraska. This is a pretty big loss for Nebraska. He was a 5-star to ESPN and Scout and a 4-star to Rivals and 24/7. He had a decent season as a true freshman:
Green appeared in 12 games as a freshman last season, rushing 24 times for 105 yards and two touchdowns and catching one pass for 25 yards and a TD.
It seems that a lot of Nebraska fans felt that that Green would be the #2 back this year and the starter once Burkhead left. It seems he left because he was unhappy splitting carries with Abdullah at the #2 back.
Free article over at Rivals about where Ty is in his recruitment. Doesn't seem like anything negative for us, and probably not a whole lot of change from what we already knew.
Slate interviews the best-selling author about head injuries, player exploitation and the subversion of the academic mission.
Colleges are going to get sued, and they will have to decide whether they can afford their legal exposure. That said, the issue ought to be how big-time college sports subverts the academic mission of university education.
