NC state playing FSU tough.

I really like the look of this TY McGill kid. Senior DT. Forcing double teams or else he's playing 3 yards in FSU a backfield.

FSU has looked decidedly mortal many times this season. That said, lot of football yet to play here.

Even down 24-7 I would have still bet on FSU to win. But they're not the best team in the country.

I'm wondering if they keep the ranking until they lose.

If Brady Joke keeps up his wonderful work Up North, I may know someone willing to take him off your hands by seasons end.

Much like Lloyd Carr and Rich Rod before him, I hope the Michiganders give Brady a lifetime contract, though.

what a sad, pathetic state of affairs in Michigan. I think yesterday either Kirk or Desmond said they'd go 7-5 this year. I think that would take a miracle.

I feel bad for Gardner. On a zone read team, he's a Heisman candidate. As a reward for his loyalty to that program, he's being made to look absolutely inept. He should have followed Rodriguez to Arizona.

Edit: I bet it was Howard predicting 7-5. I'm predicting OSU vs UM will be on espn2 this year.

Charlie Weiss fired at Kansas. Brady Hoke probably soon to follow

Gunner Kiel, kid who snubbed Les Miles, I thought he was going to pull off a comeback with his performance heading into the half.

Kiel looked great last night. Ohio State has some work to do in the secondary going in to conference play. Good news is, Barrett is growing up fast.

Barrett has grown leaps just from the Navy game to now. Seriously...if Miller comes back next season, does he automatically get the job back? I'm not so sure.
Pass defense was the Buckeyes Achilles Heel last season...it hasn't gotten any better!

Lot of youth on that Buckeye team. Offensive line and secondary are going to be a journey.

As to the Barrett/Miller question, I would look at the Tebow/Leak situation at Florida a few years back. Cam also shared duties there, as well, if I recall correctly. Someone a little more versed in SEC history (Knife? ) could probably shed a clearer light, but there's precedent for a shared responsibility plan.

Kiel is/is going to be a very good one, and a 1st round pick if he stays in school another year.

But the wild card is how much do teams consider his flakiness and impatience, if at all, in considering his draft stock? I mean, how many different schools did he commit to?

Does anyone have other examples of how players with similar commitment and loyalty issues fared in the draft and in the NFL?

What does that even mean? Transfers? Or just snubbing a school that probably won't finish top 3 in its own conference?

Justin Brown for Steelers is a transfer. Phil Taylor from Browns. Both have NFL contracts.

Troy Aikmen left Oklahoma for UCLA.

Well today may have been the best day in the history of Mississippi football. State beats #6 Texas A&M and Ole Miss upsets #1 Alabama.

Not 100 percent accurate. Wilson graduated from NC State and went to Wisconsin for grad school and was allowed to play immediately because he earned his degree.

UM currently trailing Rutgers 26-17 in the 4th quarter. If that holds up, Hoke could be canned as soon as the plane lands in Ann Arbor.

Russell Wilson may have graduated from NC State, but many players graduate and play there final year as grad students. He didn't go to Wisconsin for his final year of eligibility because he was dying to get into their cheese making Masters program. He went there to play football.

The michigan powers that be should have been braced for a loss at Rutgers. Obvious dogs in that one.
