I think Wisconsin is the best team in the West, but they have no room for error. They aren't that much better than the other teams.

This is not funny. God have mercy on your soul.

Players keep getting bigger, faster, and stronger. It is just an injury people are going to have to get used to seeing more frequently. On the positive side, the surgery and recovery has improved significantly. 20 or 30 years ago this was potentially a career-ending injury.

I am worried about the safety of Jeff George Jr. tomorrow if Illinois is forced to start him.
|9 hours 43 min ago||Maryland DB Will Likely out for the year||
Maryland DB Will Liklely out for the year. Torn ACL. Still would not kick to him.
Don't think he is eligible for a medical redshirt so this may be the end of his college career.

There are only 64 players taken in the 1st & 2nd rounds of the NFL Draft. Willie Henry was pick #132 last year, barely making it in the end of the 4th round in compensatory picks.
Every year people put this crazy talk out there. Maurice Hurst is not even a starter right now. He is going to need to have an All-American second half of the season to get a positive evaluation from the NFL Draft Advisory Board as only around 20 players/year get a recommendation to leave early. Especially in Hurst's case, no organanization is going to spend a high pick without seeing more or a monster workout.

The market for the CFP championship game will probably be less than the semifinals on NYE or possibly even Michigan-Ohio State.
The Championship Game is on Monday, Jan 9th. The market is already going to be narrowed by the fact it is on a weekday a little over a week after the winter holidays. Not many people will be able to get that time off (have to take at least Monday and possibly half of Tuesday off). If Michigan were to make that game, it may give the market a little boost, but I doubt it will reach Super Bowl levels like the OP is anticipating. Quite honestly, I think the OP is going to take a loss if he is planning on reselling them.

Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Ann Arbor is already booked for the whole week following the Illinois game. LOL.

Massey & Sagarin have already updated for Saturday's games. I doubt the 2 games today will change anything for Michigan.

AP and Coaches Polls are not being released until tomorrow afternoon due to the delayed games being played today.
|1 week 5 days ago||A lot of games left to be played||
Washington's final 5 games are still a little tricky and a step up from the teams they have played to date.
|1 week 5 days ago||If Washington goes undefeated, I don't see them getting left out||
Washington's nonconference schedule was terrible, but I have a hard time seeing them get left out if they go undefeated. I think the Big 12 champion is the only one that is in danger of missing the playoff even with an undefeated team.
|1 week 5 days ago||I am more interested to see how OSU plays against Wisconsin||
OSU at Wisconsin this Saturday. Night game and College Gameday is going to be there. I am interested to see how they match up against them.

Projected W-L: Projected overall W-L, accounting for results to date and FPI-based projections for remaining scheduled games (including potential conference championship games). May not sum to a whole number because of differing number of games played in each simulation.

Hard not to pick Navy, but Notre Dame-NC State in Hurricane Matthew was glorious.

This game is just gold.

|2 weeks 2 days ago||Are you surprised?||
Are you surprised? This is a team whose local media decided to make a list of the top-10 shutout LOSSES in Rutgers history after losing to OSU this past week. Delany!!!
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yep||
2006 was a 3:30 kickoff. Most of the 2nd half was under the lights.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Blame Brady Hoke||
Rutgers has only beat 3 Big Ten teams since entering the conference in 2014: Indiana (twice), @Maryland, and Michigan. Losing that game for some reason has given them the idea that they can compete with Michigan. It is their crowning achievement since joining the Big Ten.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||TV could be a problem||
The game is scheduled to be on ESPN2. Network is probably not going to want the game moved unless absolutely necessary.

I can't wait for the football season to start so we have something else to talk about.

Pretty obvious he put his team on his ballot. I don't think any of their prior opponents even have a vote either.
EMU's SOS to date is quite possibly the worst in FBS.

I'll go all in with Travis Johnson and Cameron Colvin. Pay me.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Saban is at his last coaching job||
Nick Saban is about to turn 65 years old this month. He is not going anywhere unless he decides to scratch the NFL itch.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||You still have to do right by the kids on the team||
You still have to think about the current team. There is no Texas assistant qualified to take the reins as an interim head coach. I think you have to let Charlie Strong coach the season out. The amazing thing about Strong's staff is that only 2 assistants remain from the staff he brought in when he was hired in 2014. And one of those guys is DC Vance Bedford who was demoted today. 5 of his nine assistants are in their first year at Texas. No one on his staff has HC experience. Who do you turn the team over to?
It is not a huge deal anyway. Their regular season ends on Thanksgiving so any firing at the end of the season would happen several days before the rest of college football. You can still vet interest in your potential candidate before then and lay the groundwork for a deal after a potential future firing.
It was just a bad fit for Charlie Strong in the first place. He should have held out for an ACC or SEC job. He would have been perfect at Miami.
