I think they only have 4 commitments at this point
I think this is a ploy from the Niners to create a perceived value among the league owners who are looking for a coach. But who knows Michigan could just be trying to compete with NFL money?
It seemed to work out well for FSU last year?
UM not having hired a coach right now is them finding the right person... i guess. But its concerning everyone else and their recruits. By the time they hire someone they may not have a 2015 recruiting class. They would be smart to Hire Scott Frost and give him the keys. But they wont.
I know he's a Buckeye and former player but let's hope not. I've never enjoyed his attitude
The funny thing is when I lived in Orlando in 2007 I heard the exact same thing from so many Florida fans. It's ok for us to be homers and to expect this to be a tough game but anything can happen. And who knows maybe we could end up the right side of 41-14 drubbing?
Not gonna lie here... I think they're pretty sweet!
I think as fans we only tend to think that because much like a chess game or Black Jack - play-calling requires some moments of throwing caution to the wind and seeing what happens. But it can be frustrating when it doesn't work
You make a good point so there's element of quality recruiting and development but to have the depth of talent here has to speak to the QB coach as well... and also to the coach and recruiter Urban is
You know who no one is mentioning? Will Muschamp. How great would that be after all the sheet Muschamp talked about UFM?
294 because it's Cardale's favorite number
Dirk Diggler - hes a Michigan Man
Wasn't the DC for RichRod @ WVU. That would be hilarious!
Some people would say that's crazy but I think this could have some merit. The fact that the BigXII doesn't have a Championship game which will hinder their ability to reach the playoffs - it could be time for Bob to make a move. He is a B1G man at heart... didn't he go to Iowa?
Is he the favorite next year? What about Brax?
I think this is a great point...
But even more concerning is the mentality that money will fix everything. Stoops is making $2.7 mil at Kentucky and they may not even become bowl eligible. And through all of this most of these schools are taking some sort of government subsidies to make up for the losses they have within their athletic department.
Sure, Rutgers isn't paying their coach millions of dollars but they also reported spending $28 mil more than they generated in 2012 and this continuous need or desire to try to keep up with the top tier athletic universities will only serve to cripple the less fortunate. It's why tuition to a school like Kentucky has gone up 130% in the last decade and why a school like Mississippi State who doesn't even rank in the top 150 of educational institutions feels its only redeeming factor for prospective students is how much money it throws in to football.
The real thing to take away from this is that selling your soul for a chance at even a taste of victory whether its yours or somehow shared with your conference brethren isn't worth it... but don't tell that to the mighty S E C!
I think this Kentucky team is absolutely capable of beating anyone but that doesn't mean they wont slip up. Come tourney-time though when they've played enough NCAA games and have become even more of a cohesive unit - I just don't see how they will lose. But there's still a lot of time left in the season.
It would seem to me that Jerry Kill and Gary Andersen deserve raises.
I will say this: It's really hard to tell until the teams play. I was in Florida in 2007 and even many Florida fans I talked to before the game thought Ohio State was too good to be beaten - we all know what happened.
I think the point is... it's too early to tell and I'm not sure there is one obviously dominant team out there this year. Each team in the hunt has had some close wins or losses to look to and say, "I'm not sure what to think of them?" I think this years finish is going to be one of the most exciting I've even seen in college football - no matter how it all shakes out.
Some people just love to complain. Bell is one of the best in the nation, he is a beast... playing at a big-time program as a true soph.
I think he's pretty good umkay?
As does the SEC.
