The second Petrino era at Louisville has started quite well I see.

If the UF job is open in December I could see Harbaugh interested. Great job, easy recruiting, great pay, and the media bias toward the SEC makes competing for national titles a bit easier. Seems like a slam dunk for Harbaugh.

I have always thought there should be a limit to review time like in the NFL. I genuinely do not believe review time has any bearing on attendance as I don't see it being a deciding reason to attend a game or not, but the game experience would greatly improve if review time was no longer than a single stadium announcement.

How about Northwestern in 2008? Lots of factors led to poor attendance - cold, rainy, 2008 offense. The stadium looked largely empty.

|11 weeks 10 hours ago||MAC||
The MAC has unbalanced divisions. From 2007 to 2011 they had Temple as a seventh member in the MAC East, then Temple left and UMass took their place. So since 2007, they have had six west teams and seven east.
The first year of unbalanced divisions all members played all divisional opponents, but some teams played only 7 total conference games while the rest had 8. The title game happened to be between two teams which only played 7 conference games.
From then until now all teams play 8 conference games, but there are always two sets of two east teams who don't play each other. It is annoying and sometimes confusing.
I don't know how the MAC does this under current NCAA guidelines. They might have an exception. I figured the ACC should be able to get a similar exception.

Give him some dreads and he would almost look like Denard with the ball security.

Yeah that's about what I figured. Russell has pretty much died compared to the old days. Though blue light up shoes would be amusing for one time only ...
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Unlikely but ...||
Any chance Russell Athletic could match a deal like the Adidas deal? Their only BCS school is Georgia Tech and I've heard those are high quality uniforms. They have in the past done deals with MLB and NFL so you can bet they are itching for another big name.

Kate Upton needs to show up to more games so Spike Albrecht can go nuclear again. I would love to see two consecutive M players get POTW.

I just got a message saying there is no ongoing threat to campus. I sure hope campus police quickly learn the motive to this shooting.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||MS, Purdue||
I've heard a lot so far so I'll try to make sense if it. I cannot verify the veracity of any of this as it all is from social media. At least one person has been shot. There were two shooters, one of which is in custody and I've not heard a confirmation on the other. I have a tendency to believe all is clear because I just saw a text saying campus minus the building with the shooting can resume normal operations.

Denver is a great team but Manning is historically bad in the cold. He's an old man and has taken a beating for years. His body has had enough. I think he plays an OK game and Seattle pretty well wins.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||He got Vandy to play harder||
He got Vandy to play harder than I've ever seen and have the confidence, even arrogance, of a winner. This is Vanderbilt we are talking about. I call the turnaround a real feat. Franklin is a great coach and will make trips to the Happy Valley that much harder.

Georgia should consider a new strength and training coordinator. It's one thing if you have a brash of injuries one year, but when it happens like clockwork, there's something wrong.

The entire offensive line will benefit greatly.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||I have no logical reason||
I have no logical reason whatsoever to say this but I'm going with Auburn. Statistically FSU should run up and down the field and have the defense to contain Auburn, but with Auburn's fluky wins this year, I say they keep it within a possession all game long and win in the final minutes.

My deepdown hope is that Kelly does make a move to the NFL, but in another two years or so, then ND hires Urban Meyer. Oh, the buckeye misery ....
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Hoke has a similar issue as||
Hoke has a similar issue as Carr: too much loyalty to his assistants. It is an admirable trait to be loyal to your assistants but when they (much of offensive staff and especially Borges) are not consistently performing to expectations, loyalty can be a weakness. Expectations are not being met here. Hoke is a fantastic coach but he needs to reevaluate the expectations of his staff and reevaluate his thoughts on what kind of offense he wants to run.

Good show, but yet another ripoff of a bunch of MMB's old halftime shows.
|27 weeks 19 hours ago||MAC||
When Hoke was in the MAC there were some powerful offenses, like record settings offenses. Central Michigan, Bowling Green, Toledo, Miami, etc. CMU set all kinds of records in the LeFevour days. Bowling Green was top 5 in offense in 03 and 04. Toledo had some receivers and a QB drafted and some success in the NFL. Miami had some QB who was pretty good. I bet he remembers some great OCs from those days, some of which have gone on to success elsewhere. If he wanted to make a switch, wouldn't surprise me if he goes that route.

M.S. Purdue University. I sincerely hope the Purdue administration is patient with Hazell. He's a great coach as seen with Kent, but he inherited a trainwreck. Bad QB play, terrible offensive line, little talent on D outside of a great corner, quick but not Big Ten caliber receivers, etc. I hope he recruits well quickly so he can prove what kind a program he can run.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Both QBs are impressing me.||
Both QBs are impressing me. Kay of Cincinnati is passing nicely, scrambling nicely, and had a heck of a punt. Temple's QB PJ Walker is a true frosh and is making a lot of plays on the run. Lots of talent there, just needs more time to grasp the offense and build chemistry with teammates. He's going to have a great career ...

There is an upcoming bowl game for MAC, C-USA, SBC, MWC, and AAC in the Bahamas. That would be a pretty nice international football game.
|31 weeks 3 days ago||It's happened before ...||
Former Bowling Green head coach Gregg Brandon had a similar tirade after the 2008 loss to Buffalo. Had BG won, they would have won the MAC East and they were up by three possessions going into the fourth. They coughed up the lead and lost in OT in front of less than 5,000 fans (albeit on a cold snowy windy Friday evening). He went off on the fans and their lack of dedication in his post game conference. The next week they waxed Toledo, their biggest rival, by four possessions. BG dominated all day long.
The following day he was canned.
ADs cannot have their coaches hating the fans. Fans = money = program improvements. I have to think this is going to lead to a coaching change quickly ...

Agree 100%. Bama's O line was surprisingly not good against VT, but they've had two weeks of practice and yelling from Saban to improve. They've got the best playmakers. And of course, they're pissed off. Sucks to be A&M and Manziel.
