We probably won't think it at the time, but we are really fortunate to play Tulsa and Bowling Green. Those passing attacks are as (if not more) threatening as most teams on our schedule. The early tests should be good for the secondary in the long run.

Great insight. The first few games make me a little nervous but the entire back seven should be pretty nasty by the end of the season. There is just so much talent across each of these positions.

Sounds like a certain coach has spooked them... http://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-football/2015/04/53110/georgia-wants-no-part-of-urban-meyer

I was shocked that I knew four soccer players.

Forget Bert, Sankey, and the SEC. The B1G could/should just extend the ACC challenge to include football. B1G  schools would get similar recruiting perks for playing games in southern hotbeds like Florida & Atlanta while also playing in Virginia, and the Carolinas. Mid-tier B1G schools would have a better chance at winning their matchups and east coast bottom feeders Maryland & Rutgers could potentially have games that would generate outside interest. Nobody is watching Maryland/Kentucky but a few Mid Atlantic residents would tune in for Maryland play Virginia or Duke.

On its face, hiring Singletary sounds like a really smart move. But with the current situation in Waco it would send a weird message to hire a coach that famously stripped naked during a post game speech in San Francisco.

Good call. Unlike his previous employer, Baylor fans aren't nutty enough to be disappointed by 10 win seasons.

It's not just about the re-migration south. Rural parts of the south (specifically Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, and East Texas) have always had a higher percentage of Black Americans compared to other rural areas nationally. Historically, at least in GA, central and southern high schools have done extremely well in state championships. City teams were rarely as big/fast as the country boys.

You're probably right about the "prevalence" of other sports. Football is part of the culture of across Texas (and the south at large). I've never lived in California but I'd imagine the majority of that state doesn't feel the same.

Not accidental, it felt more fated. I grew up in Atlanta and had only visited Ohio (specifically Cleveland) for random family reunions. I really knew nothing about anything Ohio related. During my junior year of high school I used that college board website to compare schools. OSU kept showing up as like an 90% match for everything I wanted in a school. That September I watched the Texas game and was blown away. Later that fall, an OSU recruiter from the OMA office showed up our college fair. OSU was the only out of state school that attended. I got to talking with her and she invited my family to a local alumni dinner (free food!!) and then for a school visit. The trip was in early November and the temperature was in the 60's the whole time. I was sold and it was the best decision I ever made.
