It's simple: we need one upset next week in ACC or SEC championship game and OSU is in.

This is sad. It is also terribly ignorant.  These are the two safest, almost terror-proof cities in America today.  No Paris-style attack will happen in NYC anytime soon. Mark my word on that.

The only way the terrorists win is if we become defeatist and cowardly as a society.

Tom Osbourne went 60-3 over several years at Nebraska, an NCAA record. Don't like to get ahead of ourselves, but could UFM flirt with history?

I love Dontre. He's a baller. If he ever gets enough reps and is 100% healthy when that happens, he will dominate.

I haven't posted anything on the live chat, however I can see how it is one way to work through one's emotions. It's either that or throw your shoe through the television screen.

Yes, please undo this horrendous new feature. Show all the ding dang comments. I despise the hidden comments feature.

I do not like the collapsible comments. Collapsible comments I do not like. I will be contacting my congressman.

Can we go back to no arrows to click? It's an annoyance. Or make it something each user can set in site preferences.

I believe it will be a team in a fertile recruiting area in a city or town that is easy to get to (this makes a difference for recruitment, attendance, fan support, media coverage, etc). It's tempting to say VT, because they are the most popular team in DC and in a growing southern VA region. But Blacksburg is out in BFE, and while they often take a few of the mid-Atlantic's best, they never take a critical mass. For years, UVA even out-recruited them (but rarely out-played them). Recruits just don't want to spend 4 or 5 years in sleepy Blacksburg.

I love Snyder, but Manhattan, KS just isn't going to draw a critical mass of recruits. It is easy to get to, though.

I'm tempted to say Oregon, as well, but I'm not sure if a team without a stellar defense has ever won a title. I can't think of one. The football programs at Oregon, Baylor, TCU, AZ don't emphasize defense; nor do they have a tradition/legacy of tough defense (save for the "killer bees" of AZ). I don't think any of those schools will win a title with their current coaches.

I like this question a lot. I'll go with one of the following:

Miss St.

TAMU (post-Sumlin)


EDIT: A&M won in '39 (who knew?), but has had only one stellar season since (1992).  Maryland won it in '53, according to some polls. So I guess my guess is Miss. St.

I saw Shakira wearing see-through white linen pants with a purple thong underneath in the MIA airport once. She was coming back from Turks and Caicos. I repeat: I SAW SHAKIRA IN A THONG.  I stood behind her in the immigration line for almost 45 minutes. I was a gentleman and didn't gawk though.

Lisa was a little awkward today. But it's the off season. Maybe by September she'll be ready to get serious.

Comment 17 Apr 2015

Whoa, I wouldn't annoit Herman as the best choice to take over for UFM necessarily. Let's see him sustain success at Houston and maybe one other school before declaring him the obvious choice. 

UF fans saw Muschamp as savior. A&M fans saw/see Sumlin as savior, but he's not going to competefor a NC anytime soon. TSUN fans see Harbaugh as a savior; maybe he is and maybe he isn't; he has a lot of work to do. I'll believe it when I see it.

Point is, we have no earthly clue who the most desirable coaches will be 5 years from now. Maybe Strong puts together a couple runs at UT. Maybe Mullen has sustained success at Mississippi St. Maybe Fickell or Beck or Ash is ready to step up. Just too soon to speculate, IMO.  

Then again, speculating is about all we have during the loooooong off season, isn't it?
