I think UGA will regret firing Richt. He ran a clean program and is a good coach. When he turns the U around he'll be vindicatd and UGA still be a bottom feeder in the SEC.

i hope Bruce sees this as a wake up call and gets back on track. To paraphrase Silent Cal, he needs to realize talent alone is not enough, plenty of people with talent fail to live up to their potential.

I think Godwin's Law is appropriate here. As for TBDBITL's history and uniform's, I refer you to:

Let us know when it is released. Interesting teaser but I'll echo the comment that it doesn't really tell what the story is to draw us in..

Concur on OK fans. I lived there one football season when we played and beat them in Norman and later had a client there. All the fans I meet were welcoming and knowledgeable.

Great write up, thanks. Liked your most important stat. As my coach used to say, stats are nice but they only one that counts is on the scoreboard, and that's a team stat.

I think it's good that they will be challenged, since it gives our secondary a chance to step up and gain confidence. Of course, if our d-line does it's job they may not get challenged that much.

Yes, because they are modeled after Navy Service Dress Blues, a damn fine uniform in my not so humble opinion.  Time and change is great for football but some things need to stick wit tradition. Cue Tevye...

That Vegas line is bullshit...I won't declare Ohio State a three score favorite. Can they win by 21? Sure...with Penn State's help. Will they

I think it shows the difficulty of getting bettors to wager on PSU. That big of a line would encourage those who think OSU will win but not big to come in against OSU. Your reaction is exactly how they want bettors to think so they can balance thier book; and our performance against UW probably got a lot of bettors thinking OSU wouldn't cover a smaller line and so bet on PSU.

I think they are very worried that they will become a stepping stone if they get a truly great coach. Do great things at ND and other schools will open the vault so a long term contract with a big buyout is their way of preventing that. Unfortunately, the need to get Saban or Meyer level coach before they sign the contract.

This. Years ago, when I did some writing, a writer I admired said you can go two ways with a column:

1. Reasonable but boring, which gets you a handful of loyal reader

2. Take strong positions, be outlandish at times and piss a lot of people off; which gets you lots of readers if only to tell you how much you suck.

Guess what pays more?

Does this help protect kids from getting their scholarship offer pulled from them like Harbaugh, though?

If they do this the NLOI should be binding on the school, i.e. it counts agains their total even if the student doesn't enroll and all schoolies should be for 4 years, no more 1 year renewables.

I doubt this change would have much effect on 5 stars or most 4 stars since they know a slot will be there for them; it's the 3's and below what are hoping to do well their senior year and get a coveted offer that will lose out since ether may have already signed. Big schools like tOSU, UA, USC, etc will probably not offer as may 3 stars least they use up spots they will need later; resulting in lesser schools having a bigger shot at them.
