    You asked, and here it is.

    I look forward to Syracuse running into prominence again in 2016. Remember 44.

    I predict another stout year for Alabama, even if Lane Kiffin takes the pretty lady to another university.

    Texas starts the rise from the ashes, Bub's wish begin's to materialize. It is hard not to like Charlie Strong; he seems like a great coach. That does not mean it is time to let up on Bub any.....

    Unfortunately for some, the SEC is still the dominant conference, no matter how you try to slice itl

    In small school business.......there will be baby steps and the boss will crow.

    Michigan will continue to improve, Meyer will be a force to be dealt with. Notre Dame may even make a poke at fame again. The north rises up.

    And for the loudmouth about NIU, probably not anytime soon. But don't let that dampen your enthusiasm.

    LSU could be a problem for some in 2016......Les is more. Or not.

    Floriduh State.....yeah.....buy your own crabs. Those laydown turkey's. Gator food.

    For the rest of you, keep buying your colors.

    I will gladly admit that the SEC West is the dominate half of a conference in college football. The SEC East, not so much. :brow

    15% drop in ratings compared to last season. All Southern teams is the given explanation.

    Another good job by Lane Kiffin, hoisting a so-so QB into an excellent performance.

    Yep, good game called by Kiffin. Setting up the safeties to inch up looking into the backfield with Henry and slipping OJ out and well designed routs, it was a good game plan.

    The talking heads are saying that Kiffin is now going to get a head coaching job.

    Haven't they been paying attention? All the good jobs are gone. I'm assuming that Kiffin stays another season and gets a choice gig next year.

    Yeah, I think next year Bama is replacing a lot of pieces, so Kiffin will be the author of that offense, an oppurtunity to show what he can do with pieces he picked rather than inherited. Same for Pruitt. Defense is going to lose a lot of bodies. But the secondary has been the weekness of Bama since Pruitt left ( evidenced last night) and he had some outstanding secondaries during his time there, so maybe he'll get the back end playing like they should.

    It will matter if they succeed. They have some high caliber coaches now, it could be a huge deal in two years.
