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.

Yep...and it will only get better after LSU gets bent over.
