By any chance was he CJ Thorpe's recruiter at PSU? They might explain his surprise visit,

Looks like he could help Red B more.
|1 week 3 days ago||Texas is considering a law||
Texas is considering a law akin to the North Carolina law that's led to boycotts and the moving of games and events out of the state.. If Texas does pass such a law,I wonder if there will be pressure to move the game out of Texas.

Are Bama fans this creepy? Probably not, since in the end the five stars wind up going there and they know it.
|1 week 6 days ago||I suspect that Peppers is||
I suspect that Peppers is truly torn, but that his family (in particular, his mother) want him to go pro. After all, it's his Mother who is interviewing the agents and his mother probably told Collins et al that they were her choice.

I note that all the schools you listed are schools either without a football program or programs where no one cares about football. Every recruit thinking about Michigan has to be aware that in most years, the program is going to play second fiddle to the program next door. If I had my pick of programs, I'd lean to the program where basketball is the big sport on campus.

I'm expecting Harbaugh to recruit a grad transfer to help at OL, Linebacker, and/or DB. The latter might not be necessary if both Clark and Peppers are back.

Sam Chi, the Playoff Guru (formerly the BCS Guru) had a tweet recently that explains why ALL the bowl games are important. Most of the seniors in the bowl games will never suit up for an NFL game. Thus, this is their last competitive football game of their lives. Tell them their last game isn't important.

Did I miss it, or has no one mentioned Brian Kelley as a possibility?

I'm hearing that Fickel wants out of the Cincy deal so he can replace Urban. Although they may be settling for Schiano -- or Miles.

One of my direct reports is there today. (Of course, he is a reitred Army colonel). As far as the bucket list, it's cold out today and it usually is for this game.

Speight, O'Korn, Isaacs, Morris can all go pro if they were so inclined.

Looking at MGoBlue, it looks like they're gearing up to sell tix. I'm guessing there'll be multiple options for getting tix and that doesn't include buying directly from the

Well, one good thing about going to the Orange Bowl, my brother-in-law and mother-in-law are moving to Coral Gables tomorrow. I guess that gives me a reason for a visit -- and who's going to complain about whether about 40 degrees better than where I would otherwise be,

No one will say it, but I'm pretty sure Speight got hurt sometime in the first half. He was doing fine -- and then all of a sudden, he looked like Speight version 2015. Obviously no one was going to say it, but if you look at his ability to throw downfield after the early part of the Iowa game, something was up (or down, as some may put it).

Clemson's non-conference schedule did include Auburn, but it also included Troy, South Carolina State and South Carolina. Better than UW's but nothing to write home about. They also could have easily lost 3-4 games. If I were on the committee, I'd be having a Michigan-OSU rematch and a UW-Alabama game. I suspect that result would match most of the computers' numbers. Sagarin, for example, has it that way.

To be fair the minutes issue against Va Tech was related to Wagner being sick all day.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Earlier this week I made a||
Earlier this week I made a deal with my Virginia Tech friend. I told him we would let Va Tech beat us in basketball, and he would guarantee a blow out of Clemson. He took the deal. We delivered on our part of the bargain, so we can safely assume Clemson is no longer an issue.

When talking Bama offensive coordinators, I seem to recall a guy named Nussmeier. That worked out well.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Nate Silver went to N'western||
Nate Silver went to N'western and based on a conversation I had with him sometime ago, it's clear he's not a fan of the Maize and Blue. Whether that factored into the estimate I'll let others decide.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Knowing Harbaugh, if he||
Knowing Harbaugh, if he agreed to do it, he'd do it a week before classes began and he'd take the team there for a full week including the obligatory trip to Pearl Harbor and a day at Waikiki surrounding practices.

BTW, am I the only one who thinks 88 was holding on the play???? Of course, why would they ever call a penalty after ignoring all the other indiscretions.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||It would help if PSU won an||
It would help if PSU won an ugly, poorly played game on Saturday. I think Wisconsin, with a solid win, stays ahead of Michigan because they lost a close one to Michigan on the road. PSU, on the other hand, got blown out.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||You forgot Morris will lead||
You forgot Morris will lead the sweep a couple of times - or play wide receiver.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Wisconsin "wins". First||
Wisconsin "wins". First tiebreaker eliminates Nebraska and Minnesota -- Wisconsin and Iowa would be 2-1 against the other three. Then Wisconsin advances because it beat Iowa.

I'll take the over on that.

That and the potential for snow and gale force winds.

I was on a Northwest 737 that had just landed at Metro. I called my Father-in-law to alert him to head out to pick up my wife and me. He told me, I told my wife, folks near me heard me, and within seconds I think the whole plane knew and there was an unusual quiet as we disembarked.

I guess the lack of linebackers was why they were only able to manage a field goal and a garbage time TD.

Bring back Rich Rod's playbook with Peppers at QB. :-)
