I live in Austin, Charlie is loved by everyone I know.  The only people calling for his head were the idiot 2% of the fan base, the same ones who cried to fire Fickell at tOSU.  I think Charlie will be coaching here for a long time, people appreciated how he cleaned house with the "bad" eggs last year and realize he is working without a full deck.  The radio talk show hosts agree he should get at least another year after this season. 

As to Herman, I would bet he will be at UH for at least 2 years.  He is not a one and done type of guy that lacks character, he came to do a job at UH and I believe he won't leave till he has them in the top 10 (like Sumlin).  He is a Texas guy and I don't believe he has any interest in leaving anytime soon.  Maybe he leaves after a year if Sumlin leaves for USC but that is only to take a spot at AtM.

Just hope that IU's running back isn't injured from the game. He was pretty lame after his ankle injury and that could make IU look poor in upcoming games since he is a large portion of their offense.

Agreed Michigain does look good...but I don't know if I take them over this team yet.  I am assuming they Bucks beat Maryland somewhat easily, but will be curious to see how they handle PSU.  Need to see some offensive growth from the passing game in order to believe this team goes undefeated.  If Zeke and company struggle against PSU then I will be worried about TTUN.

Strong will turn it around.  He just needs a line to block for whatever poor soul gets to play in the backfield.  They had to boot two of their best OL last year and were thin at the position to begin with after Charlie was hired near signing day and had to try to hold onto Mack's leftovers.  Now they have two true freshmen starting at OL, one at left tackle.  Their line is a siv and consequently it is really hard to pass anything other than 5-10 yard routes.  The new O coordinator fixed the deep route play calling and they now put Heard in at QB (after saving him from Sheldon Day and ND's line).  This year will be rough but the OL should be good by next season when Charlie's recruits start to mature.

Notre Dame looked pretty damn good.  Zaire was really strong and the DL looked great.  Granted it was against Texas who has been terrible but their OL should have been improved from last year and didn't look to be against ND.  We will see if the Irish are for real against Georgia Tech.  If they win there it wouldn't be too much of a reach to think they could be a playoff team.

Bigchief have you looked at his recruiting class lately? I would hardly say they stink. I think we all might be using scarlet colored glasses here. However DJ started this UM/Harbaugh hate fest by writing the hurry up and not acknowledging Harbaugh has done pretty damn well with their incoming class. I would venture a guess that Harbaugh never had top ten class talent in Palo Alto...so why paint him as less a threat than Franklin? I personally think Michigan is on its way back and am prepared to watch some great versions of 'The Game' going forward.

I dkn't think either's choice is to play WR. Brax has stated he wanted to switch bc of the worry about whether his shoulder will be fully healed. He may be back in the QB mix at some point this year. And Gibson could still be the best QB on the roster next year. Brax is gone, and possibly JT and Cardale with him...Gibson could be better than Collier and Burrow.
