"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
The maddening part about this is how easy it seems in concept and how devastating it is to a defense. This is has to be something we could easily run out of our base set using Gallon in the role of Austin. I really like the optionality there with that outside wheel. Craziest line in the story is that it takes Holgo three (!) days to install his offense. As always, great stuff from Chris Brown

At first he discusses the possibility of Max Browne taking the #1 spot from Robert Nkemdiche. (I think that is highly unlikely)
This leads me to another quarterback who will arguably be the subject of the most controversial discussion we need to have when it comes time for our next rankings in early December. Of course, I'm talking about Warren (Mich.) De La Salle's Shane Morris.
The lefty was awarded his fifth star following summer appearances at numerous camps as well as The Opening and Elite 11. However, after completing just over 50 percent of his passes as a junior, Morris started off this year 40-of-83 for 456 yards with three touchdowns and three picks. Then he was diagnosed with mononucleosis and could be out for the rest of the season, which makes it unclear if he'll be ready to play in the Under Armour All-American Game in January.
So, was the poor start due to mono or was it more of the up-and-down play from last season that held him back from his fifth star? Mono is unlikely to affect him long term when it comes to his college career, although it could delay his immediate impact depending on how long it takes to recover and gain back weight. His senior year playing sample will certainly lead to some detailed discussion.
More than likely he will lose his 5th star (whoopty doo) and hopefully he will still be able to play with a lot of his teammates in the All-American game.
No RCMB, oh dear leader?
Looking like I may end up being preoccupied during the game this weekend with a company golf outing. Has anybody used BTN2Go? I've used it before live and it was great. What I'm worndering is how quickly do the replays work? If I get home 30 mins after the game starts, can I use BTN2GO to start watching it from the beginning right away? Or do I need to wait until midnight or something?
Any help would be much appreciated.
The automatic 10 second run off if a helmet pops off an offensive player late in the game is a horrible rule.
Imagine this scenario...
National Title Game, Alabama trails Florida State by 4 points, but gets a huge play down to the 1 yard line...First and Goal with 9 seconds left.
The clock will stop, but they have to be ready to run a play or spike the ball as they have no time outs....oh wait what is this, an offensive player had a helmet pop off -- automatic 10 second run off....
Game over...Florida State wins the National Title!
Horrible rule, that any down to the wire game can end based on a helmet coming off on accident and causing a 10 second run off. Any other opinions on this? Maybe it isn't a big deal, but it bothers me.
