Man, if I was that guy's neighbors I would want to strangle him.

Can you imagine if you had small children with early bed times? After the first night, I would be over there telling him he could do audio from dark to 8:00pm four nights a week. After that shut it down after 9:30pm.

Also have to think about the traffic that is drawing to your neighborhood. Yikes. What a nightmare.

Kenny needs a year or two as a GA. Then maybe a year or 2 as a QB coach for a small program... like YSU for instance. But he'd have to show that he knocked it out of the park at that small program to even be considered for a QB coach on a Meyer coached team.

This is the big time after all.

I think it's imperative that Warinner is shown the love. I say give him sole OC duties and a big fat raise. A lot of JT's success is a result of Warinner's abilities at transforming an Offensive Line.

The biggest criticism of Bo at Nebraska was his staff development and game management. He's going to a place with less of a spotlight where he can refine those skills (and maybe get some pointers from a master). YSU is Bo's woodshed to borrow a jazz term.

Also I believe his contract at UNL had a clause  whereby Nebraska owes him the difference between his new salary and his Nebraska salary.

I don't see him being there for more than 4-5 years at most.

I don't see further realignment/expansion happening as long as player lawsuits are still unsettled. And that's probably like a decade away.

If pay-for-play actually happens though, that's when conference realignments will happen. Revenue streams will dramatically decline which will cause some schools to abandon D-I altogether.

Unfortunately, I think the Big Ten will be a ghost of itself if pay-for-play comes to fruition. The best we can hope for is that stipends along with injury insurance, scholarship, and educational reforms satisfy the litigants.

Getting back to Cowherd's prognostication. I think he's alluding to a semi-successful NFL coach. Can't think of anyone in college that would have that affect on the Michigan fanbase. (Maybe Bob Stoops but I don't see him leaving OU for UM.) The people above who guessed Chip Kelly are probably right.

But Cowherd has been wrong more times than right when he plays up that he has insider knowledge on things. In fact he's usually wrong. So I'll be shocked if this plays out like he says.

Fitz turned down the job before it was offered to RichRod. Plus there's no way he would take a job where he might have to coach against players he recruited to Northwestern. Never gonna happen. It's just not in his character to do that.

I could handle him going to Oregon and would even root for him there. But please Brax, please don't go to any of the schools in that hive of scum and villainy that we know as the SEC.

I feel for Noah Spence. I screwed up plenty when I was that age. And honestly would have failed several urine tests myself (had I been in his position).

Good luck to you young man. I wish nothing but the best for you. And please get that diploma. Some day I hope to see you in an airport (or anywhere actually) and get the opportunity to shake the hand of a fellow alumnus.

Are the BTN honchos insane? Pat Forde is a notorious Big-Ten-hater.

1) Why would they put him on the air?

2) Why would they pay him to be on the air?

It was 2 guys (I assume who are affiliated with Finebaum's show). They pretended to do a talkshow hosted by Big Ten fans (sorry Big 10 according to their marker & posterboard "graphics") in which said fans have nothing to talk about re the playoff.

The message being that the Big Ten is so pathetic, it's fans can't even discuss the playoff.
