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.

    • If the Colts are looking for a YAC guy, Corley could be a target.  He does look like Debo.  Basically a RB once he has the ball.  I like him too.  It really depends on if they’re looking for a more vertical threat. Corely does show vertical shots on film but probably not his number one strength. 
    • Had to pull off a trade with the Bills to gain extra R5 pick.   Personally, am warming up to Luke.  Then again rooted heavily for him as Nebraska's QB and glad to see him succeed as a wide receiver.   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).  Liking Luke's low drop percentage and ability to make contested catches.  Pretty solid company to be compared to Odunze who had issues prior season and outdone Marvin Harrison Jr. this year.     SS Trey Taylor (Air Force) won Jim Thorpe Award in 2023 with strong leadership qualities in the secondary.  Taylor is related to Ed Reed.  After 9 weeks Taylor’s 88.5 coverage grade is second among Group of Five safeties while posting an impressive 78.8 run-defense grade.  Taylor overall PFF grade of 85.8.
    • My top 4 realistic draft picks.  Not sure we take a WR in Round 1 but would look for Roman Wilson in Round 3 and Luke in Round 5.  Swing a trade for multiple Round 5 draft picks and add another offensive weapon in TE Ben Sinnott whom I think is probably the third best TE in the class.    WR Adonai Mitchell (Texas) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 78th in yards per route (1.72), sixth in drop percentage (1.8 percent; one drop), 79th in contested catches (36.4 percent; 4-of-11) and 100th in YAC per catch (3.2). He caught 8-of-22 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield.   WR Xavier Legette (SC) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked fifth in yards per route (3.15), 18th in drop percentage (2.7), 49th in contested catches (47.6 percent; 10-of-21) and 29th in YAC per catch (6.4). He caught 13-of-24 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield, good for an eighth-ranked 54.2 percent.   WR Roman Wilson (Michigan) - According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 13th in yards per route (2.68), ninth in drop percentage (2.0 percent; one drop), 72nd in contested catches (37.5 percent; 3-of-8) and 67th in YAC per catch (4.6).   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).
    • FWIW:   At $6 million per that made MAC one of the top-12 paid players on the Colts 2023 roster.   Do you still think he’s cheap?  
    • Isn’t it time to look for a home run pick for the offense? Bowers would be that kind of pick. Having a dynamic TE would be huge and would arguably be equal to picking up a WR1 running mate for Pitt. If he’s available at 15 I think it’s a no brainer to pick him.
