I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
According to ESPN BYU is close to leaving the MWC to become an independent in 2011. Perhaps this portends an eventual move to the PAC-__ or a desire to allow it to schedule its way into the BCS should the team be good enough.
Either way, Orrin Hatch just became less interested in developing a playoff system.

Does anyone have any input on Kelvin Grady as a defensive player in high school? I can't find any football recruiting info so perhaps someone might remember seeing him play DB in Grand Rapids. Grasping at straws? Why not?
GO BLUE! Keep the faith!
So, we all know how awesome Butch Davis was at Miami, pumping out 1st rounder after 1st rounder.
Well, he's doing it again at UNC.
Based on ESPN, here are some draft projections:
Robert Quinn - 4stars (5.8)
Deunta Williams - 4stars (5.8)
Bruce Carter - 3 stars (5.6)
Marvin Austin - 5stars (6.1)
Greg Little - 4stars (5.9)
Quan Sturdivant - 3stars (5.5)
Kenric Burney - 3stars (5.3)
3RD DAY OF DRAFT
Charles Brown - 2stars (5.4)
Ryan Houston - 3 stars (5.7)
Zach Pianalto - 3stars (5.6)
Brandon Tate - 2stars (5.3) - drafted 3rd round
Hakeem Nicks - 4stars (5.8) - drafted 1st round
The remarkable thing is that he's done it for the most part with lightly regarded HS prospects. If I remember correctly, it was a similar situation at Miami. Is there any other coach that seems to spot and develop talent better than Butch Davis?
