Les Miles Headed To Michigan?

I can’t imagine how LSU could let Miles leave. LSU officials were meeting with Miles last night –trying to talk him into staying.

Auburn, Under Armour 22 Oregon, Nike 19 —Auburn Takes Title On F...

Yes it was a great game. It’s amazing that everyone froze during Michael Dyer’s game winning run. It’s just a little disconcerting that the player of the game Nick Fairley seems to be a cheap shot artist. Lee Corso corrected one of my predictions last night . I had said that the excessive timeouts worked for the offense but at second thought the timeouts slowed the game down and gave rest to the Auburn fron four that dominated the game.  Nick Fairley’s stock went way up as a result of this game but with all the dominance of Auburn, Oregon squandered 2 red zone trips that could have tuyrned the game. I bet Stanford wishes they had a replay of the Oregon game. It is clear that despite all the questions about the AUBURN PROGRAM, CAM NEWTON AND AUBURN ARE TRUELY #1 IN THE LAND.

Michigan Fires Rich Rod –Who’s Next? Leach?

Karl, I was wrong about this one. I thought Rodriquez would be successful at Michigan. 15-22 in 3 years gets you the axe. It also seems obvious that Jim Harbaugh has no interest in dealing with the mess RR created. A storied program needs help.

Audio from Edsall Press Conference

Embedded below is the audio from Randy Edsall’s introductory press conference today.  I’ll have some thoughts and analysis on the presser over the next few days, but if you didn’t get to catch the broadcast on TerpsTV, take a listen to the audio below.  The audio cuts out with about 5 minutes left in the press conference as there wasn’t enough space on my recorder (my apologies!).

Investigations at Kentucky, WVU, Tennesssee and Miami

This is what gets me– the Coaches who oversee these violations move on elsewhere for big raises, etc. when the NCAA begins an investigation but nothing ever happens to them. Rodriquez is at Michigan. Calipari left Memphis in the dust. Pete Carroll moved to the NFL.  Who is ever accountable?

Lane Kiffin Deserts Tennessee For Greener Pastures at USC

On October 24, I wrote of the idiocy of the way Lane Kiffin wasted a chance to defeat Alabama. He settled for a 40 yard field goal from his kicker who was having a miserable day. The kicker missed –I called it the way it was–and Volunteer nation blasted me for criticizing their coach. Last night , Kiffin said goodbye to Rocky Top leaving the football program in shambles. I wonder if anyone will now agree on my comments about Kiffin. I guess Al Davis might have been right!!!!

Say It Ain’t So Pete–Join The Ranks of Fellow User Calipari

It wasn’tt that bad until Pete Carroll said the move had nothing to do with the pending NCAA investigation into wrongdoiongs at USC.   ONE TIME I would like to see a coach face the music instead of running out of town. Pete, I have been to Seattle–I know Seattle and 1 thing is certain —Seattle in no Los Angeles.
