Ok, I am going to start this simply because Illinois is yet again in the news for spending a ton of money to fire a coach they literally just gave a contract to.

At least this time, they did it because they decided to drop a huge load of money (which is ridiculous when they don't have money to fill faculty positions and are cutting staff across all of campus) on Lovie Smith.

So Illinois might have a decent football team in two to three years which is amazing to think after the $5 million+ debacle that was the circumstances surrounding Beckman being fired in September.

I'll take this time to say, I'm not sure Lovie Smith is actually a good coach anymore despite his prior records. Or in spite of them. And now he'll have to recruit.

Also, will Butch Jones be fired at Tennessee? What a shitshow down there.

Georgia keeps recruiting well and people here love the Kirby Smart hire, but I'm not sold until we actually do more than talk and recruit. Richt was able to do those things well, he just couldn't coach in the big games.

Keep an eye on Harbaugh too. He's insane enough to post Kim Kardashian like nudes of himself if he thought it'd get him more recruits or a blurb in the paper.

Don't know if anyone was paying attention to the draft news stories, but Ole Miss's Laremy Tunstil had quite a bad night. First someone posted a picture of him with a bong on Twitter, Then someone posted a screenshot of a chat of Tunsil asking for (and receiving) money from an Ole Miss coach. Then he was asked about it in the post-draft press conference and admitted the screenshot was real and that he took money from coaches. Shortly thereafter he was removed from the room by his agent.


Well, at least he didn't buy any tattoos.

To be honest I assume at least half the players going in the first round have done both of those things (taking money and doing drugs), they just aren't stupid enough to get caught. Maybe I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure he still goes early in the draft. Rather than concerns about bong hits I think teams are more worried about his inability to cover for himself.

edit; Wait, the draft already happened. So he dropped, but still went pretty high. Honestly I think Miami got a steal getting him so late.

He already did. Went 13th.  Probably dropped 5-10 spots because of it, which means a hacked vine cost the dude between 4-10 million dollars.

Here we go boys and girls... Yes, I realize Tenn squeaked by App St which actually started the college football season, but no one cares about the Vols, and even less so now. App St should have won but tripped over their own dicks.

Houston has the biggest game today IMHO. Lose and they are done for the Nation Championship, win and win out the season and they are in.

USC trojans and Alabama should be a Bama grinder. LSU and Wisconsin at Lambeau should be interesting if LSU's passing game is as inept as it always is. Les Miles seat could get superheated if he loses this game.

Strangely enough, it doesn't seem late enough in the summer to already start the football season...

Well that's step one.

Ohio State set a school record for offensive yards so I'm happy. Sure it's against a cupcake school but I'll take it as a good sign that we're still loaded even with all the talent we lost to the draft.

And LSU is basically worthless. Still no offense and no offensive play calling. Les Miles was great the first couple of years, but obviously does not believe in a passing game.  Sigh... I give up.


edit: well that's a wrap. See you guys next year but only if Les Miles is gone. I can't support this team anymore... and I'm a Browns fan.

UGA can get to the SEC championship with Eason at QB and a healthy Chubb. But nobody can beat Alabama if they play like that all season.

Thanks for stopping by Clemson. I always like it when somebody gives the bugs a reality check on that high school offense they run. You know, before UGA gets the chance at the end of the year to ruin their season.

Never quite understood why that program holds onto that triple option crap... nor why kids actually go there to play football.

1 - They can't afford to fire the triple option coach because their AD is in financial shambles
2 - They don't go there. They get 2 and 3 star recruits for the most part.

And how. They exposed the unsolvable problem on the Georgia team: Mark Richt couldn't recruit offensive line talent for shit. The current line we have sullies the good name of Hot Garbage. Nick Chubb is a phenomenon and he's looked like crap because he's stuck in a Martha Reeves and the Vandellas song.

The last 5 minutes of that game was as you said, confusing. Was watching with my gf half paying attention and I started shouting with they strip sacked your QB for the touchdown that Tenn was going to win it on that miracle stupid play. Then the bomb happened and my gf looked up and said, well so much for that notion. To which I responded that the kid redeemed himself. Then the hail mary and I looked back at her and she was just shaking her head...

I lost much money on Missouri because LSU decided they can play offense suddenly. The SEC makes no sense this year except Alabama is good.

Hoping it isn't so much Alabama being good as just being better than the rest in a down year. I could die happy if UW managed to make the playoffs and then shit all over Nick Saban.

Gameday coming to the game next week Way.  With how banged up we are and how dominant UW is I expect a boatrace, but if Joe Williams can run like he did today (332 yds, 4 TDs) it might make it interesting.

Never thought I'd say this, but hoping Michigan takes tOSU to the woodshed and knocks them completely out of the playoff discussion with that second loss. I hate Mich and can't stand Harbaugh, however not as much as Urban and the Buckeyes.

Doesn't matter though, Alabama is pretty much in a league by themselves somewhere between Div I and the NFL. I don't see them losing out to anyone this year.

It's the only time I can remember when two teams were undefeated this late in the year, and one team was a more than 2 TD favorite. And that team covered. Silliness with Alabama right now.

Ohio State didn't kill their chances but a loss to Michigan puts them to sleep. Also a loss in the final would put the Big 10 out of the playoff if Ohio State was the rep.

About goddamned time. This past week a large portion of the state couldn't even watch the game, since the dumbfuck Pac12 can't make a deal with DirecTV, and Comcast has the Pac12 channel in a sports package that costs extra (I was playing poker and the casino was too cheap to spring for the package, even though they use Comcast  Ohhhhh, I see. ) Top 5 teams should be seen by as large an audience as possible, ffs. OTOH, I did hit my first live royal of my poker career, which was worth $700 and a nice jacket (and the pot!), so I am pretty glad I decided to try to watch the game there instead of at home  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?
