He could get a bidding war next year if Strong sucks at Texas. And I'm sure another power 5 job could open as well.

I wonder if Nessler gets in trouble for saying DeShaun Watson is better than God

Defensive lineman hands to the face happens all the time. Only gets called when the lineman holds it there too long. Gets called twice on one drive for next to nothing.

That being said, Sabban is a mile ahead of Dantonio....with better athletes.

Bama v Clemson sounds about right. I think if Bama wins Saban will get the hell out of Tuscaloosa. Maybe Texas will make it work out this time or maybe he'll scratch the NFL itch again. Ultimately I think he'll end up on TV on College Gameday or something like that. He's really good.

clearly to two best teams. I didn't like our matchup with Alabama, when they chose to attack MSU weaknesses instead of trying to establish Henry, MSU never had a shot. I hope Saban stays. He sets a high bar and I like him waaay more than Dabo

Freeze is in his head, so I hope he stays. Well...not really, he needs to get the hell out of the SEC.

Yeah I think he retires. Don't think he wants to go back to NFL or to UT. He will give himself a heart attack if he continues for much longer.

Well I got lucky and got to be at the Bama-MSU game today. My brother attends msu and got randomly chosen to try a field goal at half time of a game this year. He made it and won two tickets, airfare, and hotel room and invited me along. Sucks that it wasn't close, felt bad for him cause he was just quiet for about 30% of the game. But it was awesome finally getting to see the bama machine and also the jerrydome.

Jerry World is amazing. When I first went there, all I could think of was how that place was gonna be around 2,000 years from now like the Roman Colloseum. It felt like you were walking into a modern Wonder of the World.

Yeah, it was actually really cool. Really an impressive building, and that big screen is just.. Wow. They also had a bald eagle fly around during the national anthem which I hadn't seen before. Apparently this one was the only one trained for it in the world or something, there was a short video about it before the anthem.

Ya, the screen is indescribable. You literally have to see it in person to understand its awesomeness.

So he'll be at OSU in a few years then?

Northwestern has the stupidest, most homosexual jerseys in all of sports.

Between these Bill Cosby sweaters and the creamsicle jerseys from Tennessee, this is hard to watch.

A stripe intended to make the jersey look like a sweater? We can go with metrosexual, if you prefer?

Jaylon Smith was about the only good ND player left without a season ending injury, so of course he gets one. This season is [expletive] stupid

The ejection is too extreme in all cases. I could live with a 15 yd penalty on that play.

At the very least, give every player one personal foul without ejecting.
