I'd love to see the Bugeaters get back to where they were. The OU-Neb rivalry is one that I miss. It was always good.

Definitely! I'd love to see that game injected into the schedule every year. What they have been trying to do by pumping up the Nebraska-Iowa game as THE rivalry game just isn't getting traction with me.

HA! Glad I root for someone rather than being in the party of no. I was ready for the 25 year reunion in Miami vs the Canes, trying to play Seminole and going to Joe’s on Miami Beach. But then lo and behold, BAMA v Clemson happens!

Cajuns fired their HC and are also shopping for a whole new coaching staff

ULL was going backwards under Hudspeth's direction, or lack thereof

Impressed by jimbo introduction. Hope the old staff can get the players motivated for a meaningless bowl game. I heard the jimbo contract was completely covered by some big money donors. Wish I had that kind of cash to throw around.

1 National Championship doesn't guarantee another

Bob Stoops, Mack Brown, and a metric *%&^ton of other coaches say hello


But having one of the 4 active coaches that own one is a good start

Sounds like FSU quickly wrapped up their search and Willie Ball will be played in Tallahassee.

I heard T Boone Pickens paid it all and that's why he is selling the Mesa Vista.
He was afraid the Aggies were going to steal mullet boy from OK State if they didn't land a coach soon.

I cant think of a time I have ever wanted Notre Dame to win. They are often so overrated and shouldn't be where they are. I mean look what Miami did to them and then what happened to miami the next 2 weeks.

ND also is coaching their kids completely differently that they ever have under Brian Kelly this year. They have a young QB who needs more reps. If Kelly doesnt screw it up, a year or two down the road this could have been an undefeated season. Hell they should have beat georgia but they gave that away too.

It is what it is though move on and build on it for next year.

What are the horns ranked again?

I just watched the press conference with our new coach Herm Edwards He was taking questions and calls on a reporter. The reporter states his name and says he is with Devil's Digest. Herm's response:
"Devil's Digest huh? Where you located?"
Reporter: "Right here in Arizona sir."
Herm: "Alright well Devil's Digest I'm a christian now. I'ma catholic now. Just saying we're good brotha. We're good. I ain't takin it personal"

I am not really sure this guy even knows he is going to be coaching for this year. I will be skipping the Sun Bowl
