I always liked Ohio States Jim Tressel. He was a great coach, sad his career at Ohio ended the way it did. For a while I kind of hoped he would become the Colts next coach when he was working for them. If he was still coaching I would have also loved if Purdue would have hired him. He is a university president now at Youngstown State, so I'm sure he's doing fine.

I liked him too.  I coached HS football for a while and OSU was one of the clinics we went to.  He was always very nice and helpful to coaches.

In Kentucky news they will be without a veteran DE for 2017 as Alvontee Bell was released from his scholarship

Broke team rules, which could mean 1000 things. Hurts depth a little bit but I think they'll be mostly ok without him.

Purdue didn't look to bad in the loss to Louiville, would have loved to win, but to only lose by a touchdown to a ranked opponent your first game of the season isn't to shabby IMO.  I think Sindelar won the starting QB position, he made better throws and seemed more in sync with the offense, although both him and Blough threw interceptions. The Purdue D looked HUGE up front, they were really giving the Cardinals fits!!! Anthrop looked great, we'll see if he outshines his big brother, they were both local high school sports stars! Might be an interesting season!

I was rooting hard for Purdue. Looks like Brohm has already changed the culture. Just last year Louisville would've beaten Purdue probably by 3-4 touchdowns, if not more.

Stanford plays at Southern Cal next Saturday. That won't be an easy game to win. Hopefully the Cardinal can surprise. Watch out for Bryce Love, who ran for about 180 yards in the blowout win against Rice.

I dislike Southern Cal so I hope Stanford wins.

 

Kentucky won yesterday. Wasn't an impressive win but a win is a win, and our defense looked improved which is good.

 

Anyone else see Michigan beatdown Florida? Looks like Harbaugh has himself a good team.

I saw highlights. They look really good.

 

I watched a little bit of Alabama and Florida State. I was rooting for Alabama to lose. :( Hope the Florida State QB is okay. I hate seeing these college kids get hurt. I remember when Gore got hurt in college. I felt so bad for him. Glad that he had a good career. May go to HoF.

FSU played very well for about 3 quarters of the game, but Alabama as usual busted through. 7 points ain't gonna beat anybody, especially a Saban coached team.

Wish I would have gotten tickets now.  Bunch of my buddies went and had a good time.  The last I heard on Friday the Vegas line was like Louisville -25 and I believed it (although I have to admit I almost took that bet, but I don't gamble so I didn't, lol).  I kept watching back and forth between Alabama and Purdue.  Every time I switched to the Purdue game Louisville scored or got a turnover etc.  So I kept it on the Bama game and watched the bottom line for updates.... shame on me. :(

But, Purdue hung in against a really good team and I am happy about that.  Give them a year or two and they may just be competitive (bowl team) again.  Doubt they push for Big Ten championship as long as Harbaugh and Meyer are coaching.

It seems that Alabama lost a couple of linebackers to season-ending injuries too.

Could prove to be costly in the long run, though they probably have a few 5 stars as replacements. Saban really is a ridiculous recruiter.

    • Everyone is trying to read the tea leaves to determine who would be the best coach, and I keep getting stuck on the fact that RM had a shot as a head coach and he was bad at it. I’ve been told it was years ago and he learned a lot, and I’m sure he did, but it still gives me pause. I understand if others feel differently. And I prefer a young bright offensive mind. Ballard’s lousy record isn’t a problem for him so maybe he isn’t worried about RM’s W-L. Just my 2 cents. 
    • We led. the leauge in turnovers on top of being a non scoring team those things matter. The opponent had more attempts at trying to score so of course the numbers are going to slide. This is on top of outright giving up towards the end of the season.
    • King of colts said on his podcast a little birdie told him right now colts don’t see much of a difference in 3 of the quarterbacks. But that can change with the HC hire and once they start evaluating.  Hope that is just not Ballard being indecisive and not being proactive. He thinks colts should get the 3rd QB at then least. They both said bears are not going to miss out on carter or AndersoN. So he thinks bears only trade with Texans or colts or stay at 1. 
    • Because taking this long is unprecedented, and like we discussed with the Saturday hiring, just because something is unprecedented doesn’t mean it’s good. Plus the longer this takes, the more people that are left in limbo, and the more you lose out on future coordinators and position coaches. A lot of teams around the league let go of their coordinators and certain names like Vic Fangio, and Duece Staley have already been hired elsewhere.   If Irsay needs to stop meddling, then Ballard does too. Let the coach hire their own people. I know Frank kept Flus and the O-line coach even though they were for McDaniels, but that’s not always going to be the case. IMO it’s a big sign of distrust if you’re going to hire someone to be your HC but not let them do what they want.   And if that’s the case, if I was a prospect, I’d be wondering if I would even be able to get the type of players I wanted in the draft.
    • Looks like Murray’s contract is turning out to be a issue in AZ.
