For me, I'd drop the weakest link, and add Notre Dame (B1G West needs more competition) or the next closest regional power geographically, so perhaps VT.

In terms of getting rid of TTUN or PSU, while we're being fans first in such a fun fictional scenario, there's no way we could let their revenue go.

Which is a shame too, because that new stadium they play in is super nice—the best in the MAC, no doubt. I was up there last summer and it was pretty staggering how modern and nice it was. I guess building things to attract people only works in Iowa.

Better slate than usual, but boo to Penn State for that POS schedule (though, the good news is they could be 6-0 coming here, and in turn, Game Day might take note).

Great question. In seriousness, I believe he loves the chase, which is the downside IMO about winning a repeat national title, which this team has the ability to do this year. At what point does always being the best get boring?

Somebody mentioned it above, and I agree that the NFL will be his next move. RIP to him if it's Cleveland, too.

I'll throw you a +1 because I respect your opinion. It could happen. That said, I'm seeing them at 6-0 coming into the Shoe for their whoopin', and I could also very well see them at 9-1 before they get Michigan at home—at night and under the lights. That schedule is a complete joke (worst I've seen in a while for any B1G team), and they will no question be better than last year.

Right when you think "OK, this is his last chance", he gets cut, and then signed again by somebody else. That said, at some point here, he's going to have to face the facts.

Star-wise (averages), Franklin's recruiting better than everybody not named Urban in the conference, and that includes MSU and TTUN both last year and so far this year. How that'll compute come, say, 2016 and beyond—once their scholarship numbers return—remains to be seen.

Wish we could Mount Union these fools and drop 130 players on 'em.

Comment 17 Jun 2015

Wow, Penn State's recruiting class star average is pretty impressive. Some elite talent in that small class. As for TTUN, I'm not surprised they're recruiting OK, but if you're looking at said star average, I will admit that I thought Harbaugh would be able to attract better talent.

Odd that it comes so close to the news that a booster becomes their "recruiting coordinator", eh?

Comment 19 Jan 2015

The thing is, Franklin went through the same thing at PSU that Harbaugh is now at Michigan. Guess who got more immediate results? Franklin ended up coming in and flipping a number of guys (including 4-star WR Blacknall) and getting that class finished in the Top 25. Harbaugh better get to work. I'm not impressed.
