    :lol: that was an interesting few mins on google

    Still, I suppose a lot of people involved in football/nfl have worse issues than banging college skanks

    Brett McMurphy said on Sirius radio that the belief was that this was Lane's last year at Bama no matter what even if he and Saban wouldn't say it out loud. Any truth to those rumors

    Yeah... Saban was done with him. Basically told Kiffin to find a job after this year because his time at Alabama was done.

    Banging college hotties, coaching, being a **** or a combination of the three?

    Also sounds like a big reason Lane didn't get a bigger job is because he and the schools he spoke with couldn't agree on a buyout. Houston wanted to make sure they weren't used as a stepping stone.

    So all the coaching jobs are filled. What's everyone think of the big hires? I think LSU is now no longer going to be looked at as an SEC contender

    Texas and Oregon did well

    USF did nicely as well, Strong is a big name and has lots of experience recruiting in Florida.

    LSU may serve as a warning...not many want to come to the SEC to compete for second...

    I think Oregon fared the best. Not convinced that Herman does any better than Strong. LSU took a step back. I really like Strong and hope he does well with FSU.

    Also think its telling that Scott Frost wasn't in the conversation at Oregon. Toxic personality outweighs coaching ability.

    PJ Fleck should be taking a step up next season.

    I think they may be it...Fleck was the hot name this year and looks to be a guy waiting for the right situation.

    Willie Taggart hired Jim Leavitt at Oregon...

    That Colorado defense was damn good and USF's was not...nothing against Ray Woodie who is a hell of a position coach and recruiter, but I can understand with going with someone that has a better track record. Leavitt was a bit screwed over at USF glad he has been coaching again because he is a damn good coach. in a couple of years, Oregon will be fighting for that Pac 12 title.

    Watching the Citrus Bowl is further making the point that Lamar Jackson didn't deserve the heisman.

    Won it in September, lost it when it mattered.

    Yes REAL Heisman winners can do something with all of those unblocked defensive lineman streaming through as soon as the ball is snapped. Don't worry your guy lost it in the first half of the season when he decided to play like luke warm dog ****. :lol:

    @AdamSchefter: Michigan TE Jake Butt tore his ACL during Friday night’s Orange Bowl loss and will need to undergo surgery, per source close to school.

    ****ing hell. I like Butt

    And this is why I don't blame players for sitting out.

    Not sure if that last sentence is intentional, funny regardless.

    & yet we'll probably see Clemson get pounded by Bama on 1/9/17.

    He did, yet still had 40 touchdown passes. I'll take that bad year all year

    Louisville will be a thorn for a long time. Until 2018 when Clemson is getting the best qb recruit since god knows when. Have a good 2017

    ---------- Post added at 11:04 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:03 PM ----------

    I wouldn't be to sure. Didn't get pounded last year and Bama struggled to move the ball with any consistency against Washington.

    Clemson has the horses and the coaching. I'd be surprised if they "get pounded".

    J.T. "Little Game" Barrett can't leave college football soon enough. He is an absolute embarrassment. I can't believe Urban Meyer allows his great schemes and so many talented surrounding players to be anchored by such a stiff at quarterback. Meyer was laughably frustrated after this defeat but somehow didn't pinpoint Barrett specifically or by name. I sense he knows it. Barrett didn't look prepared at all and didn't seem to particularly care.

    Barrett had 3.8 yards per attempt against Clemson, reminiscent of his 3.9 YPA last season as 14 point favorite against a joke Michigan State pass defense. Barrett has essentially ruined two college football playoff seasons and it would have been a third if he hadn't gotten injured late in 2014. No chance Ohio State would have won the title that season with Barrett out there instead of big play Cardale Jones. Barrett ruined 2015 by enabling Michigan State's entry instead of immensely talented Ohio State.

    At least it made for an easy wager on Clemson. I can't imagine a more lopsided matchup at quarterback.

    I'll root for Clemson against Alabama but normally -- like boxing -- the rematch goes to the original winner and by more decisive margin.

    When I saw Ohio St. favored by a point, I thought you might be betting on Clemson. I'm torn for the title game, because I almost always favor a dominant D, but if Clemson can slow down Alabama's running game, they, again, have a heavy advantage at QB. The NCAA was smart to make Clemson and Ohio St. the 2 and 3 seeds - even though Washington deserved the 3 seed more than Ohio St. Guaranteed NT rematch.

    I didn't originally think anyone would beat Alabama but I think Clemson is peaking at the right time and has a real shot. They were absolutely dominant against Ohio State and they are hungry. I'll take Clemson and the points all day long.

    When you have the best qb on the field every week it makes your chances always better.

    With a healthy Mike Williams and a non suspended Deon Cain I expect Clemson to score 40 again.

    DeShaun Watson, Clemson will miss you kid. Go light up the NFL for all of the Clemson family. Just don't go to the Bills or ajets.

    I'm going to be rooting hard for Clemson....ACC pride. Clemson has the horses and the QB to win this game, would be a great way for Watson to end his career

    I'll miss and not miss Watson, a great competitor and a joy to watch....gone are the Cook v Watson battles. Looking forward to the next generation to battle for the top of the ACC.

    Let me say this, although how it was handled, the Gophers getting PJ Fleck as head coach is a great move, and I think he can do for them what D'Antoni did for Sparty

    I'll take the qb over the RB..No? Especially that kid, best HS Qb I ever saw. Gonna be a Luck type prospect.

    All I know is the ACC is gonna be tough. FSU, Clemson, Louisville, Miami..

    3 in the same division..sheesh gonna be like the NFC East with no back to back winners pretty soon. I expect FSU to win it next year.

    I'm thinking about that FSU vs Alabama opening game...

    What a great way to start the year...nothing allows us to judge a team like an elite opponent and none getter better than Bama.

    I'd say the entire FSU team will be looking for redemption. It's going to be interesting to see what weekend the ACC schedules this game on.

    We are at Clemson and UF this year, home against Louisville and Miami....

    We should have 4 or 5 primetime games...hell, the FSU game is one of the few times you will see UM and UF in a primetime game...you're welcome.

    I'm predicting a losing season this year for the tigers.

    Can't lose a player like Watson and keep winning, got to hold it down until Sunshine arrives on campus :lol:
