Georgia +650 for the national title is pretty good value. Also jumped all over UGA -10 vs. ND week 4.

There are a few decent games tonight, including UW-USF. Go Bulls.

So hornibrook left a school where I assumed he was guaranteed to start, for a school where he will sit on the bench his senior year. That makes perfectly good sense.

He wasn’t going to start at Wisconsin. Maybe not even second string.

Seriously doubt Chryst was going to replace his Orange Bowl MVP and guy he brought here from pitt  because he was injured last year.  Wally Pipp notwithstanding, coaches don't do that. and its not like Coan is Johhny Unitis. Job was Hornibrooks to lose.
And if he left because he didn't think he would start, why transfer to a school where he wouldn't either?

Let me put it another way. His transfer wasn’t completely about football. There were off field issues that impacted his status with the team.

Apparently his concussion didn’t come from football but a bar fight with another player that he initiated. And that was the tip of the iceberg when it came to the relationship with his teammates.

Harbaugh finally has his QB situation in place. Shea Patterson will have a stellar season but watch for Dylan McCaffrey will have plenty pf run. Expect fireworks from him this season.

When I look at the schedule I think Penn State will be close but WI has a real chance to win.

Say what you will but Chryst has built a real program in Madison. That was an excellent hire by them. He is a quality guy, too. That hasn't always been the case in WI coaches.

Built a real program in Madison?  Have you been asleep for the last 25 years?

That is a storyline, that the BCS is back.  ;D

Alvarez thoroughly understands what it takes to win at Wisconsin. Andersen was a huge error.

I haven’t seen this much Becky Badger football talk since Sultan was here...
"I hate everything about this job except the games, Everything. I don't even get affected anymore by the winning, by the ratings, those things. The trouble is, it will sound like an excuse because we've never won the national championship, but winning just isn't all that important to me.” Al McGuire

Hard to tell with the joke of a Western Division they play in each year.  8 wins should be minimum before they even start the season

Why question OSU - loaded with 5* talent, a chimp could coach them to a big ten title...

Taylor >> Hurts for Heismann

Harbaugh blows...

Washington beat E. Washington 42-14 - local media has them now penciled in for the national championship.   Of course, they are distracted because the Seahawks signing Clowney has them all making their Superbowl travel reservations...



Key story lines for this season:

How does Ohio perform post Meyer?

Where does Meyer end up coaching?

Are USC and UCLA destined for mediocrity?

Is A&M a BCS contender?

Notre Who in the BCS?

Jalen Hurts Heisman for OU?

Clemson or Bama?

Ohio will be really good this year but the question is can Day maintain the momentum?

BTW, Ohio has tried to trademark "the" so Michigan has a tee shirt where the "of" has a TM next to it. Hilarious.

Washington is for real. I like what Petersen is doing.

Harbaugh needs to deliver this year but, regardless, his seat will never get warm in A2.

Wow, incredible. I can see how the school is so highly thought of with that type of creativity.

He will be good but the SEC West will make him look bad.

Bad loss for Oregon. PAC 12 has really fallen off.
