For the uninformed, what is magazine-style?

I've got your blue collar guy right here. Dude was an inspiration to us all...

|6 weeks 2 hours ago||Free Agency||
I'm kind of surprised that there aren't more grad transfers, honestly; you'd think it would play out more like free agency in the pros. Now of course there are only a few teams that could really take advantage, but for elite teams with a hole and a clear path to a starting spot, you'd think that there would be more good players from Group of 5 or lower tier Power 5 teams that would jump at the chance to make a run at a national title.
Take Bama for instance. Last night they played for the national championship with a true freshman at quarterback. He's not bad per se, but he was far from great, and a more accurate QB probably wins that game. Maybe I have it wrong and Saban doesn't want a grad transfer (Davis Webb grad transfered to Cal, and I have to believe he would have been better than true freshman Hurts), but there isn't a Ryan Higgins (LaTech), Dane Evans (Tulsa), etc. that would want to come in for the chance to lead Bama to a title?
On the one hand, I respect these guys for sticking with their schools and their teammates instead of going the free agent route (reminiscent of the message in Bo's The Team speach). On the other hand, this past year and for the next couple, it looks like there will be a few glaring holes that could keep us from being truly elite, and it's a little frusterating that we can't find someone to be the missing piece to the puzzle given all we have to offer.

Wouldn't they get the same amount of points regardless (assuming they picked correctly)? Either way it's a correct pick right before he committed...

Does anyone know what the underlying video is? I've always wondered about that.

Does anyone know what's going on with Gameday tomorrow? Does it actually start at 7am, or is that just a pre-show?

I was wondering this too...

Well, he wasn't wrong...
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Akers vs. Harris||
A few people have mentioned before that they think Akers is the better prospect despite Harris being the top ranked player; does anyone know what that's based on?

I wonder what aspect didn't seem to go well:

It would be pretty funny if Florida State hires Miles after Jimbo left to take the LSU job...

This guy agrees...

With Don Brown and Tom Skerritt, our defense would be unstoppable...

I'm legitimately shocked about De'Veon's receptions number. I can remember a single pass to him all year, let along 10. I guess 10 receptions for 21 yards will do that...

The funny thing is, Herman doesn't even have much in the way of Buckeye roots; he only coached there for three years, though we immediately think of his time there since it was his springboard to the head coaching ranks. Ironically enough, Bo actually coached at OSU for about twice as long, and Moeller played there...

Thanks for putting this together; I always loved your Inside the Boxscore diaries.

The irony of the picture of the crying Indian (of the 1970s "Keep America Beautiful" PSA fame) you posted at the top was that he was actually Italian-American; both of his parents were immigrants from Sicily. Iron[y] Eyes Cody?...

This was my thought exactly, namely that the loss to SMU all but seals that Herman is out the door. The expansion hope was quashed, even with his good recruiting he'll never get the talent at Houston that he'd get at Texas, LSU, etc. It's time to strike while the iron is hot, and even if his iron has cooled a bit, the market is blazing. Texas would probably take him in a heartbeat, he'd get a long look at LSU, people forget about FSU (if Jimbo leaves for LSU or Texas, Herman is probably a top candidate there), and even if schools like Notre Dame and USC weren't planning on firing their coaches, I'd bet that if Herman expressed interest, he'd get serious consideration.
Summary: he gone...

This seems to be a surprisingly common problem for head coaches. See, for example, Lloyd Carr, Brady Hoke and Les Miles...
