I don't get the move to linebacker. I think the kid has a future in the NFL as a free safety just based on his physical talent. This is a huge season for him to essentially make an impact and live up to his hype. As of right now he is Mike D'Andrea.

Does anyone else miss the old conferences? We get Nebraska after their glory years and a pair of traditional football turds on the east coast all for money? I liked it when West Virginia played in the Big East.  I guess I miss the regional feel of the sport. More than anything I hate that we have to play Maryland and Rutgers every year in football opposed to traditional conference foes in the west division.

Looking forward to his magazine dropping soon as always. He usually does a pretty solid job forecasting seasons. I still refuse to buy into the Tennessee hype, perhaps they are being crowned the new Georgia of the east. Picked to win the east and always come up short.  I think Florida wins the east. McElwain is a solid coach, they have a bunch of talent on d. Not sure is Austin Appleby (purdue xfer) will be the starter at QB. Is it September yet?  Finishing up a bunch of outdoor projects, have a bathroom remodel that has to be finished by week 1.

I still don't understand how any football player at a major FBS program can't get pussy.

Real men don't need to be told to respect  women. Just my opinion.  That sign is about as useful as a warning sign for having dogs on the property. Serves more meaning to the folks outside of the fence than those who enter.

I bet South Carolina has buyers remorse:

Odds of Briles landing an OC gig in the SEC next season?  I'm being serious. Vanderbilt has some rape history... seems like a fit.

Maximus, I cant speak for Millennials but I like your list. Shame you get DV'd for your opinion. I really like traditional uniforms just because they have stood the test of time and have more meaning. I hate Michigan, but everyone knows the winged helmet. I think those certain aspects are a part of college football history and tradition and should be preserved.

A few others I would add to your list would be Oklahoma, BYU, Georgia and Kansas State.

Some teams I think that got away from classic looks and should go back are UCLA, Miami, Florida State, Arizona State, Texas A&M, Boston College, Syracuse and Washington.

Also love Virginia Tech's uniforms when they had the Orange sleeve numbers. Just unique.

Hey maybe they can finally get the shoulder stripes and Clarendon font numbers back they wanted.  I remember coach Mora saying something about with the current Adidas jerseys they couldn't do their traditional stripes on the shoulders.

Comment 21 May 2016

I'd lean towards Curtis Samuel. Great hands, vision and he breaks tackles. IMO Dontre Wilson hasn't proven he is strong enough to break an arm tackle yet. I know typically coaches lean towards WR on punt return based on catching ability, but I feel like Samuel has as good of hands as many of our receivers do. As for our younger guys who really knows until we see. Hill, Mack, Campbell and Dixon are still have to get their chances. Older guys like McLaurin and Clark could be in the mix. I think Samuel is the best option overall. I'd like to see him with K.J. Hill on KO return.

As much as I would like to see Weber blow up, I think it would be pretty sweet is Bront'e Dunn just had an epic season out of nowhere. Same goes for Tracy Sprinkle. I like when guys emerge late and surprise everyone almost as much as when a heralded croot shows up all KatzGinnBraxton on us.

Comment 07 May 2016

Tennessee, Ole Miss, Oklahoma State, Louisville, A&M and Washington are not better than Ohio State. That is a ridiculous list. I'm guessing we start the season around the 11-13 range. We lost a lot, but we recruit and reload much quicker than 90% of the country.

Meyer's recruiting more nationally has also helped Michigan State tremendously. I also think its going to help Michigan as well. Still a bunch of talent in Ohio. Tressel did a great job of putting up a fence around the state, Meyer lands the big fish, but it also is helping our enemies to a degree. You could also say that since Meyer has taken over the competition level in the B1G has improved. Tressel keeping Ohio talent home was great, but the rest of the conference seemed to really suck for a while. Every coach is different. I can appreciate all of them for that. They have all been great... well Cooper could have been a little better.
