I have this vision.  In the world of Super-Conferences, each conference will have a cadet branch.  The B1G would have the MAC, the SEC-the Sun Belt, PAC would have the MWC, and the Big XII would have Conference USA.  (The ACC would have the AAC, I guess.  If they still existed).  The winner of the MAC, for example, would get the chance to move up into the spot of the last place team from the B1G.  We would see an expanded conference and playoff schedule with super-conferences, so nonconference play would be limited to a couple games and would be chosen from teams in the cadet branch and only played at the beginning of the season.  This would eliminate FCS cupcakes played in November.  The simplified scheduling would make it possible to swap a team from the cadet branch into the super conference.

Exactly, I may have my preference, but I am just firmly on team "pick a guy."  Go Buckeyes.

I am scheme illiterate, but I really liked the way our team operated when we were running the 'power read-option' (I think).  And I thought Barrett had a very good command of that offense.  I think we changed it when Cardale took over and we were very successful against some very good teams.  Perhaps the coaches felt that whatever we did the last three games was just what we should do from now on, and that is why they are going with Jones.  To me, though, I would be much happier going back to the 'optioned speed-reading power touchdown' thing.

Looks like Braxton was in a black jersey in the last shot. So is he still taking some reps at QB?

I bought a bottle of Eagle Rare on Monday and I'm saving it for some July 3RD celebrating (I work on the actual holiday).  I've had it once before and I think it makes a great Manhattan.

Brown bears are big, black bears not so much.  I realize this gif is just a cub and an adult could still mess you up but it isn't a guaranteed death that messing with a brown bear would be.

Played in high school and college with a group of friends, we knew it had a nerdy reputation and preferred to keep it a secret. One friend didn't quite get that it and would always bring it up in mixed company.  As an adult you don't mind as much, but as a 16 year old who just worked up the nerve to talk to a pretty girl, the last thing you want is that friend running up to tell you about a new spell he found for his druid.

It's not the coach's job to spare the other teams feelings. If, at this level of competition, the feelings of the players are more important than the outcome of the game, then the refs or the organizers, or the opposing coach should have called the game.  Mercy ruled the game when it was 104-1 at the half, or even earlier.

When we lost in 06 a lot of fans were coming up with wild theories to explain the unexplainable.  My personal theory was that the gators had met a well dressed man at a crossroads and made some sort of Faustian bargain.
