Have to feel bad for him a little.  Any other year and he'd be the star back of the league, but with Gordon and Abdullah choosing the same year to go crazy he's still in a shadow.  Just to put it in perspective for our fans - he's got more yards in 10 games than Hyde had in his 11 last year.  If he wasn't playing us this week I'd like his chances to get to 2000.

More than a little.  He was likely the first RB taken in the draft, now he's likely to miss next season.  Considering Marcus Lattimore was basically the same situation and he fell to the fourth round, Gurley lost a TON of money this weekend.

I want him to stay, but I don't think he needs any more resume help.  People are aware that the offenses the past two years (and an undefeated team before that) were pretty off the charts, which looks good on him.

Agreed. Saban is clearly the sport's top dog but any conceivable metric, but Urban has solidified himself firmly at the 2 spot.  The bigger debate is really who's in third - Jimbo?  Stoops? Kelly? Dantonio?

I actually laughed more at whoever asked that question.  "Any chance you're looking ahead to Indiana?"

Comment 13 Nov 2014

I don't think the league reputation is really driven by Northwestern or Penn State at this point.  We need us, Sparty and Nebraska to not shit the bed the rest of the year, then win some bowl games.

I think most people are rooting for Miss St, but realistically Bama is going to pound them.  1-loss MSU falls to 4 or 5 and we still need them to lose the Egg Bowl.  Our best hope for some good news Saturday lies with Miami taking down FSU.

I personally think MSU is overrated.  Their schedule has consisted of playing teams at the right time - they were highly ranked but have since shown themselves to be not as good as we thought (A&M and LSU, as well as an Auburn team that itself was highly rated due to beating A&M while THEY were highly rated).  Bama is going to roll them.

Comment 13 Nov 2014

I think that's irrelevant.  We don't get to have it both ways - we can't claim that we're a totally different and improved team than we were in week 2, but claim that TCU hasn't changed at all so their week 2 margin-of-victory is clearly a measure of how good they are today.
