This is a very interesting era that we are entering into.  The age of QB depth.  Think about it.  Troy started for 3 years.  Then the Boekman buffer year before Pryor started for another 3.  Followed by Braxton's 3 and possibly more.  We are set up in the future to see QBs not get the keys to the offense until their Junior or Senior years.  Which is somewhat scary given the body of work so far.  

edit:  The 3's are technically 2.5

Chill bro

Do you watch games?  Or at least all of them?  He just made a mistake by mixing up Dixon and Clark.  Jeff Green DID play against Wisconsin on the last few series.  He WAS on the field with Noah Brown in the slot and James Clark as the 3rd WR.  Also, Brown doesn't play as much as you think because with Wilson out we play a lot more two TE sets.  Brown pretty much only comes in to run a crack back block on the outside linebacker on outside run plays.

I heard Adam Rittenberg say earlier today that he thought it could be due to the strict academic standards and the lack of funds to pay assistants.  But either way something is going on because Oregon St is a significant drop off in terms of attractiveness of programs.  They need to get it figured out because the West is already the weaker part of the conference and if Wisconsin slips back into mediocrity that will be no bueno for the conference.

Well count me as bummed.  I really enjoyed hearing about his determination in getting the Ohio State offer.  He seemed like a great kid with a great head on his shoulders, so I hope where ever he ends up he is successful.

I was wondering, since the bowl games already give players a bag of free "swag" would they be eligible to provide the travel means for parents to come watch their son play in their bowl game.  For instance if the Sugar Bowl foot the bill.  Would that still be a violation?

I'm not really sure why everyone is all up in arms about JT not getting invited.  HE WAS NOT GOING TO WIN!  I agree that he had a great season but the darling has been Marcus Mariota and Gordon made it interesting over the last few weeks and Cooper is the best player on the "best" team in college football.  There is no real suspense to the award this year.  Similar to when Troy won it.  Everyone knew that Troy was going to win the award.  The last interesting Heisman ceremony was back in 05 with Bush, Leinart, Young because no one knew who would win the thing.

Mullen is from the north, so maybe he wants to return back up here.  If he is going to get hired out of MSU, I would like to see him somewhere in the B1G.

I will agree with you on Texas (always liked their road whites) and Penn State (there is something about the simplicity, and that navy is one of my favorite colors)  However, I disagree with you on Nebraska and Notre Dame.

I talked to my brother-in-law yesterday about this and he agreed that he thinks Mack will get back into coaching and that it would be great for him and Muschamp to reunite in Lincoln.  Mack was a fantastic recruiter, he just needs to build a competent staff that will develop the talent.

I think it will much more similar to the playbook Braxton ran the past two years.  Cardale has a cannon and so I can fire the 40 yard play action bombs set up off of the run.  JT was much more methodical because he was accurate in the intermediate throws.  I expect to see play action to D. Smith.

Squirrel you are dead on in that we don't have a true NT.  That is the biggest difference in this d-line compared to years past.  I understand that they want to get the best 4 dlinemen on the field at any given time but I still think Hale moving to oline hurt us in this regard.

There were a lot of people complaining about Urban getting COY.  I think they all forget that we lost the reigning two-time silver football award winner 12 days before the season started.
