Some really intriguing match-ups to look forward to.

WVU-Texas is the game I want to keep an eye on as Texas actually plays some semblance of defense and also runs the ball so the pace of the game will slow some. If Texas can play ball control offense and keep the defense fresh they should have a chance.

I also hope Nebraska beats OSU. Urban Meyer annoys me...thats all I got.

The UGA-USC game will feature two candidates to be the top defenders selected in the next two Drafts. Three potential first round RBs as well.

I agree, I cant see anyone going with someone other than Jones/Clowney on the defensive side of the ball the next 2 years.

after both teams' last two/three performances, I feel confident that UF/LSU is going to be a very close game. I still don't know how our lines will hold up against deeper, stronger teams like LSU, but if we do well I think UF is going to win

Rutgers is ranked eh?

Anyway finally a good week through and through.. last week I turned the tv on at noon and saw some Illinois PSU along with the stellar Minnesota Iowa games.. tragic

Upset pick this week even though it has been a little hard for me to follow this year but I ke UF and GT this week to keep it close or even pull off the win.

draftguru151
10-01-2012, 08:30 AM
Clemson might put up 50 on GT. I could see UF winning though, should probably be a low scoring game and UFs offense could have some big plays with Driskel and Gillislee.

10-01-2012, 08:35 AM
Miami has a shot too but they would have to play really well they are clearly alot faster than ND.. and yeah but ACC games are sketchy and GT can control TOP if Clemson doesn't stop the run.

I'm definitely cheering for the Gators and they are much better than I expected, but there are a lot of ways UF could lose this game. This is the toughest defense Driskell has faced all year. They should be able to get pressure on him, which is the best way to rattle a young QB. I think this game is going to be very back-and-forth probably coming down to a late field goal.

Coaches likely to be fired? For now, I'll go:

-John L. Smith, Arkansas (obviously)
-Derek Dooley, Tennessee (14-16, 3-2 this year)
-Jeff Tedford, California (80-52, 1-4 this year)
-Joker Phillips, Kentucky (12-18, 1-4 this year)
-Frank Spaziani, Boston College (21-22, 1-3 this year)
-Jon Embree, Colorado (4-14, 1-4 this year)
-Doug Marrone, Syracuse (18-23, 1-3 this year)
-Robb Akey, Idaho (19-48, 0-5 this year)
-Dan Enos, Central Michigan (8-20, 2-2 this year)
-DeWayne Walker, New Mexico State (10-33, 1-4 this year)
-David Bailiff, Rice (24-42, 1-4 this year)
-Bobby Hauck, UNLV (10-25, 1-4 this year)
-Jeff Quinn, Buffalo (7-21, 1-3 this year)

Not a ton of high profile jobs, but a good number of openings. Tedford's large buyout could save him. I think solid recruiting will get Edsall one more year if they don't totally tank again this year.

They are the best available job with an absolutely absurd amount of money at their disposal considering who they have as alumni between the Walton family and Jerry Jones.

Your statement has numerous hypotheticals.

Arkansas could certainly offer Jimbo Fisher a raise. Is he viewed as a "legitimate candidate"?

But why would Golden be interested? And why does that rumor have any merit? Did Golden actually tell someone he had extreme interest in the Arkansas job? Or did someone think it sounded logical because of the sanctions that he would want to leave? I don't doubt Arkansas might have interest in Golden, but for some reason I doubt he's expressed any interest in them.

The Dude of WV ‏@theDudeofWV (https://twitter.com/theDudeofWV)
Arkansas has contacted Miami's Al Golden & Golden is very interested.

That's where it came from.

Why would he be interested? By the time he builds the team he wants at Miami, the NCAA sanctions will kick in and it could very well be all for not with a postseason ban and scholarship restrictions. Arkansas can offer considerably more money than Miami could come up with (really only Texas, Notre Dame, and Alabama could begin to match if Arkansas went all in).

The better question is why wouldn't Golden be interested in that job if offered?

MassNole

You're the Arkansas AD, the Walton's and Jerry Jones give you a blank check. Who do you go after? If they wanted to go the coordinator route, then I'd easily say Kirby Smart, Mark Stoops, and Chad Morris would be at the top of the list. But with their money you could go all in.

Perhaps you go after Jim Tressel or John Gruden or even an NFL HC like they did with Petrino.

Saban won't leave Alabama with what he has going on there. but with Jimmy Sexton (as I said with Fisher) they will certainly make Bama pay him more if they made a run at him.

Let's say I could offer someone a contract at roughly 4 mil a year. My realistic list would probably be:

1) Mike Gundy
2) Dana Holgorsen
3) Jimbo Fisher
4) Dabo Swinney
5) Charlie Strong
6) Al Golden

Probably in that order. If I couldn't lure any of them with the big money, I'd probably either look the SEC coordinator route or someone like Sonny Dykes or Willie Taggart who are doing great things in the Sun Belt.

Fair enough, but in this case it's evident Morris is the brains of the operation at Clemson. Swinney would get killed in the SEC. Morris would also open up valuable lines into Texas as a former HS coach there for recruiting purposes. Arkansas needs to find an A+ level recruiter and game day coach to legitimately compete in the SEC West. If I were them, I'd look defensive minded coach first, but looking at what is available, it seems they'd have to be willing to open the wallet for a DC to come on board.

On your list from most to least likely I'd say:
1) Dana Holgorsen
2) Al Golden
3) Charlie Strong
4) Dabo Swinney
5) Jimbo Fisher
6) Mike Gundy

T. Boone Pickens wouldn't hesitate to open up the wallet for Gundy and has a better chance to win at Oklahoma State than Arkansas. Fisher would certainly use Arkansas for leverage to get more money from FSU, but again the path to win at FSU is much easier than at Arkansas. Charlie Strong would be a great candidate, except for a reason we shouldn't go into here but we all know.

I could also see Holgorson getting a ton of love. But would his offense fit in the SEC? Would have to find himself one helluva DC because that one at WV wouldnt do the trick.

From the Big Ten thread:

I said this elsewhere, but he's not wrong. He's there for football. He knows that. Urban Meyer knows that. Ohio State knows that. The NCAA knows that.

The whole premise of the "student-athlete" is just used to justify not paying these minor league players.

Ohio State specifically picks ******** classes where these kids don't have to spend anytime studying or doing work. Let's not kid ourselves that this is about academics at all.

It's better or worse depending on the institution, but it's pretty much a joke everywhere.

I just found it funny that he would choose "we ain't come here to play school"

The way I see it is football is essentially an internship for their real world profession.

to a point he's right school is to an extent pointless, what's important is work experience.

However, there's only a handful of guys who will make it to the NFL. You would think they'd use their opportunity at a full scholarship to get a degree in a field which they can actually put to use in the future.

However, there's only a handful of guys who will make it to the NFL. You would think they'd use their opportunity at a full scholarship to get a degree in a field which they can actually put to use in the future.

1) Most of them come from places where the public education system resembles something you would find in Zimbabwe. In many cases, they neither have the appreciation for education, nor the necessary skills to do well.

2) They are recruited with dreams of the NFL pumped into their heads. Combine that with the natural arrogance of being a young kid and the adoration they've received all of their lives. Almost every kid at a school like Ohio State is expecting to play in the NFL. It's stupid, but it's true.

3) Even if they had the necessary skills, intellect, and ambition to do well in school, they are severely limited in the amount of time they have to do take serious classes. Challenging classes are usually discouraged so that kids can stay eligible and APR numbers are kept high. Any coach that says otherwise is lying.

As a graduate assistant at Minnesota for 5 years, I saw one college football or basketball player in any of my classes, and he was a walk-on. Conversely, I had many student athletes from pretty much every other sport (baseball, hockey, track, every women's sport there was). Now, I teach at a D3 school, and I have a ton of football players because they aren't sheltered from real classes. It's not a coincidence.

I get that the kid is going to be mocked, and he is clearly pretty stupid, but people should also take this as an opportunity to consider just what the hell college athletics is all about. He's not an abnormality.

Brandon Saine was in one of my Econ classes. A 500 level Econ class that we got graded on attendance. He showed up twice out of 20 classes to take the midterm and the final.

Laurinitis was in my calc class. Quite the opposite tho, he sat in the front row everyday and blocked half the board with his gigantic neck and shoulders.

If Dooley doesn't win 8 games and his bowl game, then there's a chance Cut could be brought back as a HC. They went after him after the Kiffin debacle, but negotiations fell through because Cut wanted to bring his entire staff, while then AD Mike Hamilton wanted to keep the coaches who stayed, such as Jim Chaney and Lance Thompson. That likely wouldn't be the case this time, although Cut would be wise to keep a certain few.

Not at all, I thought the same thing when he was in high school that I do now, dude has no feel for the position. He's a spread running QB who is trying to pretend to be a drop back passer and it's obvious he's not comfortable doing it. If he was a Cane I'd be 10 times more vocal about him not having the intelligence to play the position. Dude has been sacked 17 times already this year, almost all of which are on him. He plays in an extremely simple offense and barely has to make any reads at all, and he still struggles with mental problems and holding onto the ball too long.

Ha a Miami fan saying another team sucks. Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black.

He never said Miami was a juggernaut by any means. LSU does suck.

I gotta tell ya...it feels fantastic to land the Lattimore's and Clowney's these days. haha. They're breeding freaks in South Carolina...just not at QB. But hey, at least we're landing these guys. The recruiting process and pursuit of them was incredibly nerve racking, tho.

I hate when people do that so much. My team is completely irrelevant to another team sucking. Then again there is a reason Bert has been banned from here 47 times.

LSU doesn't suck. Florida is a very good team. LSU was overrated, yes, and they certainly aren't as good as they were last year, but they are still one of the top teams in the nation.

Yeah, some people feel that you saying "LSU sucks" is actually "LSU sucks, My hurricanes are soooooooooo much better its not even funny man!". If a team sucks a team sucks, thats all there is to it lol. No reason to take a shot at the posters team. Cmon now.

They suck compared to the type of hype they get.

Obviously I was exaggerating, their defense is still top 5 in the country, but their offense is absolutely terrible this year.

After last year's game, I thought Georgia had us this year. No chance.
