For sure. I happened to be living in Kalamazoo a few years back and was at the WMU hockey game which was his first public address to the students/fans. He came out on skates with a hockey stick and pumped up the crowd (which has no football tradition to speak of) to a level that got me excited for Bronco football! Now he's no Urban Meyer, but his future is certainly bright

Though I tend to agree with you about a Non-Power 5 team getting in, I do have to say that Boise's schedule is decent enough that if they blow through Washington, at BYU, at Virginia in the non conference enroute to an undefeated season, mixed with only one or two teams with 1 or fewer losses... Then maybe.

I hadn't heard about this at the time, but after a search it looks that, as of late August last year, FSU and the POTUS had still not been able to match their schedules up before the start of last season. Too bad for those kids who earned the truly unique experience. --Also an interesting note, Ohio State joined 2010 Auburn as the only school in the last 12 years to make the visit after March.

This will be my first spring back in Columbus since graduating in 2010, and as a long time 11W reader who'd been living vicariously through this site from a far I always thought it would be really cool to put faces to some of these avatars of whom I feel like I know so well. I'm excited to finally experience said event!! See ya'll there!

p.s. I always wondered, are there name tags involved to identify who's who? I thought that'd be cool because, believe it or not, I am not actually Smokin' Jay Cutler, as my pic suggests...

I'm just nitpicking, and I know it's not really the point, but I don't think you can call the Big 12 the worst of the Power 5, not as long as the ACC is still a thing. Baylor, TCU, K-State, Oklahoma, etc. vs FSU, and... Clemson? am I missing anyone? 

That being said, yeah sure TCU, it's a bummer FSU went undefeated because there's no way a first year committee keeps out the defending champs as the only no loss team. But maybe just don't blow huge leads in the 4th quarter and you wouldn't have to be crying in April. Get over it and move forward. (And for the record, I think all this pissing and moaning reflects a lack of accountability and will resonate through the Frogs this year resulting in a dumpster fire of a season)

I've watched a lot of prep highlight films over the years, a lot of good ones and a lot of HS stars that were never heard from again. Adrian Peterson had a look of an all-time great.. But this Walker kid, I'm telling ya, there's something special about him. If you haven't watched his tape yet I encourage you to do so; I've never seen a combination of talent like his.

I don't play golf, but I can certainly drink some beers in the clubhouse to support the cause.

Right on Mort-remember how Urban showed the team where the national championship banner was going to hang in their facility before they left for Dallas? His belief in his team and ever honest assesment instilled in them that they were on a path to destiny.
