    I think Brian Kelly is the guy too. I thought that a year before ND hired him. He did one hell of a job at Cincy. He seems to understand something the past couple of guys didn't: he knows how to win with the guys on the roster. I honestly think he'd be successful wherever he goes.

    I think UF has a classic case of playing down to their competition. Very interested to see what happens this weekend.

    I'm not worried about FSU scoring. I think Elam and the boys shut them down. If we could just get our offense going...

    edit: and it wouldn't be Florida State hate week if I didn't mention the fact that they only have one quality win because they're in a joke conference.

    Maryland, a fine Midwestern institution. That's almost as bad as having Missouri in the SEC. :rolleyes

    SEC dominates this thread, SEC dominates the world.


    Who is likely leading most Heisman ballots? A freshman from the SEC. We're getting a 4 team playoff after 1 more season. If the season ended today and the playoff was already instituted, who would be in the tournament? Notre Dame and 3 SEC teams. How many SEC teams will be in the top 10 in tonight's BCS poll?


    I completely understand how the rest of the country is getting sick of SEC football.


    Go Dawgs!

    Supposedly, their top choices are

    1. chucky
    2. charlie strong
    3. Kirby Smart

    Which is ironic considering Kirby Smart is basically a younger Derek Dooley.

    Still can't figure out the fascination with Chucky. He's doesn't have a single day's experience as a head coach in the NCAA. How does anyone even know if he can even recruit worth a damn? He won a superbowl sure, but he was handed a team with all the talent in place and had two losing seasons after that. Why would he even make the step down to the collegiate level when he could easily get a job in the NFL?

    His wife was a vol cheerleader, he has family in the area, he got his start at UT as a grad assistant. That's the argument for him coming to Tennessee.

    A lot of speculation though that he's headed back to the NFL for another coaching job.

    Here's some FB quotes from a local preacher who is an obnoxious Auburn fan;

    "I'm telling you guys, the fix is in. NCAA and Vegas gamblers have put big money into seeing that Bama an Notre Dame meet up. K=State and Oregon never had a chance. The zebras are paid off big time. Lane Kiffen taking the bucs to make sure SC doesn't beat Notre Dame. Fishier than the Boston pier."

    "Once those refs are paid... anything can happen. Coach will tell his boys.. "you can hold all you want to tonight. the refs aint gonna call it." Some refs became very rich today."

    " But, I will be pulling for the SEC champion in the National Game. I don't believe that Notre Dame would even have a winning record in the SEC. There has been a lot of money invested to keep them winning. But Bama has a lot of money also and all I can say is that there will be some wealthy refs coming out of this game. I wonder what the outcome will be if Bama buys some of the refs and Notre Dame buys the rest. Could be interesting. Georgia does not have the cash of either Bama or Notre Dame."
