    I could see College Game Day being in Tallahassee for the FSU - U of L rematch. Especially with Clemson being a bit down next season.

    FSU should be top 5 UL should be top 10-15...easily could be a gameday type game.

    FSU will already get the Kickoff gameday against Bama as both should start the year top 5.

    recruit rankings.png

    Here is a nice composite list of the rankings for the 2017 class...

    I do find it interesting that Scout always seems more off then the rest...

    I typically trust Rivals the most regarding college recruiting. They have us at 5 and it seems about right.

    I think most are pretty close, it is just that Scout is oddly off...Rivals is my goto in this, though, I have followed it since they started tracking prospects this way.

    They are all typically pretty close, I just prefer rivals.

    Now Michigan State is caught up in a sexual assault investigation involving 3 football players and one staff member. This is the second sexual assault investigation pending in Spartans athletic programs. There have been several instances in the not to distant past that trouble in East Lansing has been handled poorly but that may not occur here. The university has hired an outside law firm to investigate.

    How about Maryland knocking off Texas. Not sure if that's the Terps improving under Durkin or Texas being over rated.

    I appreciate the kids swagger, but maybe not pick the most physically gifted QB in the country to say these things too. Start smaller, like FSU's freshman QB and work your way up to Lamar.

    It is things like this that makes me love college football. You get so many of these types of story, kids from war ravaged countries, blind kid snapping the football. Just pure awesomeness.

    Gonna be a fun game next weekend Lou..

    Lamar is going to have his way, but if it's a defense to slow him down its Clemson's..

    Bryant needs to make plays like he did tonight more often to win too..

    Irma obviously is all that matters.

    However, there was some welcome levity and profit today courtesy of Little Game Barrett. It is astonishing that Urban Meyer sticks with that stiff at quarterback. Barrett singlehandedly removes Ohio State from national championship contention season after season.

    Tonight Baker Mayfield managed more than twice as many yards per attempt as Little Game. I didn't do it specifically but at a quick glance it was something like 11 vs. 5.3.

    That's actually an improvement for Little Game, given the 2.9 YPA in the home loss to Michigan State in 2015 and 3.8 in the playoff shutout embarrassment to Clemson last year.

    Hoping for the best result for everyone and everything during Irma. Hard to believe some Dolphin players actually cared about the timing of their bye week, when people are going to die as a result of this storm. If Roger Goodell had done anything other than to switch the game to the joint bye week, he should have been relieved immediately.

    At this point, an unsupervised Petrino is way down on the list of things I'm nervous about.

    That certainly is one way to look at it.

    In relation to college football: Bobby's contract is written as such that for years that Tom Jurich is NOT the AD here, Bobby's $10 mil buyout starts dropping.

    From what I've read everybody around Louisville is expecting the death penalty.

    It certainly is possible. Hell, even the student newspaper called for it.

    If the interim AD or interim president (whomever is picking the interim coach) can get a good one (Tom Crean is out there) this team can still make a Final 4 this season. Even without Bowen they're still a top 15 roster. That's the bad thing in all this: we didn't even need Bowen. We already had 2 good NBA prospect wings playing his spot in King and Adel.

    We're potentially getting the death penalty for doing two stupid things in getting some sleazy escorts (that didn't even help recruiting and in one case actually DROVE a recruit away) and getting a player that the roster didn't even really need. Things are great right now: my university is being dragged through the mud, the Fins are soft, Trump is trying to raise my taxes, and the main water pipe into my basement is leaking. Things are just peachy.

    Hang in there brother, at least the Louisville football team didn't plummet from number 3 to unranked in two games.

    It's spread to Nike already. As soon as this story broke, every UK fan hit Facebook to gloat and make fun. I advised them they probably should hold their tongues. If they think Nike isn't paying all those kids to pick UK then they're either naive or an idiot. With UK fans it's usually that they're idiots. U of L fans have been telling UK fans for years that World Wide Wes (a big time "basketball guy" is the best way to describe him as he doesn't have an official title in the industry) has been funneling recruits to UK in conjunction with Nike. They just scoffed at us.

    The big question now is will this spread to football or not. All those summer 7 on 7 camps/tournaments that are sponsored by the shoe companies are probably getting looked at.

    Damn Buddy....I have always admired Jimbo...even to the point that when Nick retires..It wouldn't hurt my feelings to make a call to Jimbo...but his playcalling the last
    two games has baffled me....when your OL is having a rough time protecting your QB...run the ball more to help him out,especially when he's a freshman!!
    Plus that defense you had out there last week,didn't look anything like the one that was busting Bama in the mouth a few weeks ago.
    What's up?

    I've never been a Jimbo homer but he's a good coach, especially offensively and recruiting. However, these past two games he's just been off and has been outcoached. I loathe Charles Kelly so it's no surprise that our D is pedestrian and falls apart in critical situations. I want to fire him so bad! Hopefully, Jimbo can get their heads straight this week because our schedule is brutal! Clemson, Louisville, Miami, and Florida still on the horizon with no bye week.

    Namor you’re right that if no death penalty is applied you won’t see it again. Economic effect both locally and to the NCAA will be a strong factor.

    Pretty sure this will cross into football and certainly you’ll see major changes at this level. I think paying players is coming to try and get control of the money flow. BBall may eliminate 1 and done and model entrance requirements after football.

    Admittedly I’m a little giddy not only because college sports needs to get cleaned up and is in obvious need of a new direction but the drama about to unfold will be quite interesting. Cupboards packed with popcorn
