I never would have thought home field advantage would be worth that much...especially a regular season game against Ole Miss. Oh well, I hope both parties are happy with the deal!

College football coaching isn't far from becoming one of the least popular jobs in the country.  Most schools have unrealistic expectations for their coach. 

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

No kidding- this is the same USM team that fired Jeff Biower a few years ago- one that started their streak of winning seasons (He had something like 13 or 14 in a row), bowl appearances and wins, (6-5 in bowl games) and four C-USA championships.
THe reason given at the press conference? Jeff Bower would never get Southern Miss a national championshp, so they'd better get someone who could.
Edit: For proofread.

Anyone else hear Nebraska and Oklahoma renewed their rivalry. Good news for the B1G.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.'s picture

Why is Maryland eager to join the B1G? Where else can a school afford to pay $2mil to buy out a game? Life is good in the B1G.
