Besides Notre Dame, what are some of the other potential openings? I thought Michigan should have pursued Kelly instead of Rodriguez. Another coach you have to wonder about is Patterson from TCU. Its hard to imagine some team not pursuing him.

Illinois- It's not a high profile job, but it is in a major conference. I think Illini boosters expected something more than 2-6 with Juice Williams and Arrelious Benn.

Georgia-This shouldn't be an opening, because Richt has done a fine job and most of his success has been recent, but they really underachieved last year given they were preseason No. 1 (losing their LT hurt) and this year is going pretty ugly for them. I've been hearing some things, although IMO it would be a mistake on their part.

UCLA- This might be one year premature, but after starting out 3-0, they've lost 5 in a row and they'll probably lose to USC again. Neuheisel and Chow aren't looking too much different than Dorrell (in fact, Dorrell is looking slightly better). At the outset, it was thought that Neuheisel would have them in a BCS bowl (or at least a high second tier bowl) in just a few years and then leave the program on probation. Well...they're not even going to make any bowl for the second year in a row and he still might leave them on probation. Still...its only been two years...I think they'll give him one more. This is the sleeping giant of college football. They have a perfect recipe for success...great school, great women, great location, alot of resources and alumni, but outside of the late 90s and 1993, they haven't been in the national discussion in the modern era.

Arizona State- They're just kind of middling and I think they expected more success from Dennis Erickson. If they don't make a bowl, he could be out.

Good Call. I actually thought of CU first but then I thought of them possibly not wanting to pay Hawkins and I also thought that Kelly might actually be better off at Cincy given its proximity to good recruits (Colorado vs Ohio). Illinois has access to Ohio and is in a conference more cache than the Big East, fair or not.

Georgia-This shouldn't be an opening, because Richt has done a fine job and most of his success has been recent, but they really underachieved last year given they were preseason No. 1 (losing their LT hurt) and this year is going pretty ugly for them. I've been hearing some things, although IMO it would be a mistake on their part.

I was thinking about this yesterday during the game and I agree with you. Realistically, when a couple of teams are at the top of their game in terms of recruiting and coaching competence, theyre generally tough to beat even for other SEC schools who also have access to good recruits. But youre talking about a lot of pressure at some of these schools and expectations that dont always acknowledge the advantages that other schools have. Expectations make it a bottom line business in the SEC. And with that loss of Georgia to Tennessee, it might have eaten into Georgias recruiting.

UCLA- This might be one year premature, but after starting out 3-0, they've lost 5 in a row and they'll probably lose to USC again. Neuheisel and Chow aren't looking too much different than Dorrell (in fact, Dorrell is looking slightly better). At the outset, it was thought that Neuheisel would have them in a BCS bowl (or at least a high second tier bowl) in just a few years and then leave the program on probation.

Interesting. Id like to see UCLA become a bigger player for a couple of reasons: 1) Id like to see USC have to split recruits the way the Florida schools have had to and, 2) UCLA has meant good things for Florida fans. They beat USC in 2006, which let Florida into the NC game where they trounced Ohio State. They also played UCLA twice in the final four and won. Id like to see it start to go their way in football...not at Florida's expense though.

Arizona State- They're just kind of middling and I think they expected more success from Dennis Erickson. If they don't make a bowl, he could be out.

I see Arizona State being similar to Colorado where Kelly is concerned. Could be wrong though. Kelly does seem to have a skill at working with and developing QBs though and it does seem like the two Arizon schools get some decent QB prospects from time to time.

Looks like Notre Dame is pussying out. I don't blame them, though. A couple more great recruiting classes and we'd blow those guys the **** out in one half of football.

Notre Dame ducking Miami series?

Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick said in April he wanted to renew the football series with Miami. But Swarbrick now isn't returning calls, and UM believes he's no longer interested because he never responded to two UM proposals (including a home-and-home series and/or a neutral site game).

Houston came from behind to pull out a win against Tulsa. After failing to tie the game on a 2-pt conversion with :40 left, Houston recovered the on-side kick and drove to the 34 yard line with :03 left. Their placekicker's career long was 34 yards but he stepped up and drilled a 52-yarder with room to spare for a 46-45 thriller. Case Keenum passed for 522 yards!

June Jones is pulling off another miracle....this time in Dallas. His Run and Shoot offense has the SMU Mustangs one win away from bowl eligibility with three games to play (all very winnable). Looks like SMU will go to its first bowl game since 1984.

Watch out for SMU. Coach Jones says another recruiting class and a half and they'll be really competitive. Personally, I wouldn't be shocked if in two years, they are the kings of Conference USA.

Landry Jones was just beyond awful, I'll give the Nebraska D some props, but with even a decent QB performance OU wins. I don't really like Landry and think it will be difficult in the future years with him at QB because he is indecisive, isn't accurate enough and tries to scramble too early.

Yeah, I guess it is easy replacing 4 OL, an All-American TE, a Heisman Trophy winning QB and 2 starting WR's all in the same offseason/season.

TCU leads Utah, 41-14, midway through the 3rd quarter.

The more I study the BCS standings, I believe that TCU running the table helps Texas get into the National Championship Game.

Right now, Cincinnati is #5 in both the people polls and the BCS standings but they are #3 (behind both SEC finalists) in the computer polls. With the way the Big XII has turned to mush, the computers have determined that the Big East is actually better this year than the Big XII, hence an undefeated Cincinnati will beat out an undefeated Texas if the computers are the deciding factor.

Right now, the Bearcats can't get close enough to Texas in the people polls for that to matter but when the SEC Championship Game loser falls, TCU may be the only buffer between Texas and Cincinnati in the people polls. If, at the end, Texas is #2 in the people polls and Cincinnati is #3, Cincy might get into the title game with a stronger computer ranking. Therefore, TCU's winning helps keep Texas ahead.

Meanwhile, the Froggies don't have the SOS to leap over Texas but they're running interference for the Horns by being #4 and dominating some good MWC teams to keep their people poll position solid.

I would guess they probably will cruise into the BCS title game...but I'm not locking them in yet. Road game against arch rival A&M should never be overlooked. Nebraska has only allowed more than 17 pts in a game once this season, so I honestly don't see them suddenly rolling over for the Horns.

The South is way better than the North, no doubt, and Texas looks legit. But we've seen this script before in the Big XII title game: national title contender gets upset by major underdog.

Texas shocks Nebraska in 96.
A&M over previously unbeated KSU in 98.
Colorado over Texas in 01.
K-State over OU in 03.

I guarantee no matter who comes out of the North it won't be a replay of the 05 Colorado beatdown.

I thought Iowa made a foolish decision today with the game tied up 24-24.

They got the ball back with 52 seconds left in the 4th quarter at their 33 yard line. I think they still had 2 time outs....and they chose to run out the clock and take it to OT....and they quickly lost. 52 seconds is an eternity in college football with the clock stoppages on first downs.

I know they had a freshman backup QB in....but on the road, as underdogs, you take the chance to win when you have the chance. They only needed about 35 yards for a realistic FG chance.

I wasn't able to see much of the TCU game, but what I saw in highlights was impressive. I hadn't realized until this weekend they were all the way up to #4. This feels like a very fitting year for a non-BCS conference team to barge into the title game. Probably won't happen (Texas seems to be hitting their stride finally), but it's fun to imagine.

I totally agree. It would be poetic justice if a 3-TD underdog Nebraska surprised Texas like the 3-TD underdog Longhorns stunned Nebraska in '96.

Not that I'd want it to happen, of course. 2001 still smarts.

It's easy to assume Texas has a green light to the big enchilada but the Aggies are schizophrenic and always seem to save their best game for the Longhorns. There's talent there. It just doesn't seem to sustain itself over 60 minutes.

Nebraska, too, is an uneven performer. I haven't been too impressed with the interior offensive line at Texas which means Suh could spend a lot of time in the backfield. But I don't think the Huskers have the offense to stay with Texas. They'd need to win a low-scoring game, just as they did with Oklahoma.

And Nebraska still has to get past K-State and Colorado before they punch their ticket. Given the way this seasons has gone, neither of those games are sure Ws.

Yep....Iowa could have called 3 somewhat safe plays to try and get some yardage and then went to OT if need be....but to not try at all proved foolish.

Nebraska, too, is an uneven performer. I haven't been too impressed with the interior offensive line at Texas which means Suh could spend a lot of time in the backfield. But I don't think the Huskers have the offense to stay with Texas. They'd need to win a low-scoring game, just as they did with Oklahoma.

And Nebraska still has to get past K-State and Colorado before they punch their ticket. Given the way this seasons has gone, neither of those games are sure Ws.

Yep. When Helu is healthy (which it looks like he might be again) we do have a threat to break big runs. And Niles Paul has come up with big catches...but our o-line self-destructs in the red-zone (i seriously think they become retarded when we cross the 20), and our QB play is erratic at best. It would have to be an OU-like multiple turnover day. Which is unlikely given Colt McCoy is not Landry Jones.

K-state and CU certainly aren't automatic. CU game actually has no impact on the north--the winner of KSU at NU next week will "win" the North. I'm looking forward to it, though. A bit of a throwback to the 90s. Could be a fun matchup.

Are there any kitty fans left on this board? I remember we had the beloved Saulbadguy, who so strangely disappeared for the duration of the Ron Prince era. I seem to remember Crushaholic actually being a pretty cool KSU fan.

Anyway, don't forget your power towels.

Suh will be in CU's backfield all game, their OL has to be the worst in D1. Sounds like the decision has been made to fire Talkins, whether that's formally done before or after the game, I think everyone will know what's happening one way or the other. The team has pretty much quit on him anyways. That game will be about as automatic as it can get, will probably be a "home" game for all intents and purposes too.

Raiders bench Russell for Gradkowski

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2009/11/18/raiders-bench-russell-for-gradkowski/

Posted by Mike Florio on November 18, 2009 6:01 PM ET

The JaMarcus Russell era has ended.

For now.

Raiders coach Tom Cable, who yanked Russell for Bruce Gradkowski during Sunday's 16-10 loss to the Chiefs, said Wednesday that Gradkowski is the new starter.

Per RaiderBeat.com, Cable called the move an "easy decision."

Through nine starts in 2009, Russell has a passer rating of 47.7, with two touchdown passes and nine interceptions. For his career, the first overall pick in the 2007 draft has a passer rating of 65.5.

Gradkowski's first Raiders start will come against the 7-2 Bengals. The former Toledo Rocket started 11 games as a Buccaneers rookie in 2006 and one with the Browns in 2008.

I know he threw for 328 yards and 3 TDs when they beat Michigan State earlier in the year.

There's a case for Oklahoma State making a BCS bowl. Here's why:

If the National Championship Game is SEC vs. Texas, that opens the Fiesta Bowl to take another team. Texas *must* win out for the Cowboys to have a shot - or Texas must lose out against Kansas and Texas A&M while Oklahoma St. wins at Oklahoma to claim the South title.

TCU and Boise will probably both win out and while the BCS only has to take one, taking both isn't necessarily fatal.

You'd have 10 schools to fill five bowls. 7 spots are reserved:

SEC champ (Florida or Alabama)
Big XII champ (likely Texas)
Big 10 champ (Ohio St.)
Big East champ (Cincinnati or Pitt)
ACC champ (likely Georgia Tech)
Pac 10 champ (likely Oregon or Arizona)
non-BCS qualifier (likely TCU)

That leaves three more teams.
One will be the Florida-Alabama loser.
One could very well be Boise St.
LSU can't be included because only two teams from one conference can qualify.

So, if you look at the BCS standings, here's who is left:

9. Pitt
12. Oklahoma St.
13. Iowa
14. Penn St.
15. Virginia Tech

If Pitt loses to Cincinnati, who knows how far they will fall but they'd fall some. If they fall below Oklahoma St., the Cowboys would have a legit claim to the final BCS spot.

So, the most likely course for this to happen is:

Texas gets to the National Championship Game.
Cincinnati beats Pitt
Georgia Tech wins the ACC
Oregon beats Arizona and Oregon St.
Oklahoma St. beat Oklahoma.

It's not critical, but it will also help if Iowa and/or Penn State stumbles again or TCU/Boise St. gets hung with a loss.

Other than liking the idea of a second Big XII team adding to the conference pie, I'm not an Oklahoma St. fan but those of you who are should hope this scenario plays out.

Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska is the best player in college football this year, but of course he won't win it.

I think it all comes down to 3 players and if one of them has an outstanding game in their last few games, they will jump ahead of the other 2 contenders.

1: Mark Ingram, RB, Bama:

1399 yards rushing and 12 rushing TDs with 225 receiving yards and 3 TDs. Games against Auburn and Florida remaining. If they beat Auburn and Florida and he ends up with 1700+ yards, he has a good chance.

2: Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford:

He had 136 yards rushing and 4 TDs in a loss to Cal today....a win in that game would have really helped his case. On the year he has 1531 yards rushing and 23 TDs and 116 receiving yards on the year. One game left at home versus Notre Dame to state his case. Getting 170+ rushing yards would put him over 1700 yards and the 20+ TDs are Heisman worthy.

3: Tim Tebow, QB. Florida:

His stats are not great this year, compared with his previous years....but his team is undefeated and he is Tim Tebow. I have him 3rd right now....but monster games and wins against Florida State and Alabama could vault him to the Heisman. He needs a 'Heisman Moment' in the next 2 games if he wants to win it. 1945 passing years with 14 TDs to 4 INTs on the year. 706 rushing yards and 11 TDs as well.

I think this is how I'd vote it right now. The only reason I wouldn't put Toby first is because his team choked (even though he had a GREAT game) against the rival bears in a must win, and I take team achievement into account. Tebow is a bit over rated, but you can't ignore the fact that he always seems to win.

no, you do know that Stanford was a dominate football program at one time, and in 100+ years, you don't think they could have a grip of great players. Even the worst football program would. Retiring numbers is only for hero's like Tillman or Jackie Robinson...not for good players that won a bowl game or two.

Maybe Elway should have gone out of his way to be more political.

Maybe they require the player to play in a bowl game or have a winning record.

That was Elway's fault?

Congrats, Kid, for winning the Big 12 North. Hope you crack the Top 25 so you look like a more credible opponent.

I'm taking nothing for granted. The Horns will be heavy favorites against both A&M and Nebraska and seen it mean nothing at the end of the day.

But Nebraska means a bigger audience for the game and possibly more Heisman votes for McCoy if he has a strong performance.

We're 23 in the coaches, just outside in the AP. If we take care of CU we should be ranked in both assuming at least a couple losses by other teams.

Knew it would be a rebuilding job on offense this year, and has it ever been, but on the whole Pelini has done a great job of getting the team to rebound from a tough stretch and find a style of play that they can win with.

He still has a ways to go in some facets of head coaching (sideline composure, team is still too mistake/penalty prone in all phases), but the two-year turnaround on defense has shown he was the right hire.

Defensive averages a game:
2007 477 yds 38 points
2008 350 yds 29 points
2009 281 yds 10 points

That is just crazy. And while I'm not wild about our chances going into a virtual home game for Texas, I'm glad we get the shot. It seems like we always play Texas tough (albeit, always to blow it late and lose in heartbreaking fashion). Hopefully it will be another good one.

First, though, we need to stay focused and handle the Buffs.

Props to your Buckeyes.

Michigan's defense played good enough to win....Forcier's 5 turnovers are what cost them the game. Brandon Graham played lights out again....he will be a first round pick and a force on Sundays.

I did not expect Michigan to win the game, but it was disappointing to see the defense step it up, just to see the offense let them down.

Thanks Fella. They have a pretty good D, but their O is down right awful for the amount of talent they have (OSU). If they don't develop some sort of passing attack, they will lose the Rose Bowl. Hopefully Michigan give Rich Rod one more year, I did see improvement. And yes, Graham is a beast.

I think he might be better in the pro game where he could be better utilized. Another issue with him is that they are really thin at TE and I think they didnt want to over rely on him.

I think it might be smart for him to stay at UF one more year. I think he'll be able to show more with Brantley passing the ball next year. Plus, when you look at this years draft and all the QBs that might be in it, some guys who might normally be a first round pick will get bumped to the 2nd. But either way, its not like he'd be playing for peanuts and it also sucks some times to watch your teammates that youve fought with move on.

Gerhart is a tank and I was glad to see him get that 3rd TD...but it was a bad decision IMO to run it in for the TD (which ND obviously wanted since they let him score). 1st and goal, only 50 seconds left, ND with a single timeout: you really have to take a knee, and run it down to a final chip shot FG. Leave zero shot for ND to respond. Instead they nearly let Clausen and Tate take it into OT.

Mizzou was in an identical situation against KU today and took a couple knees to make sure they had the final play. Best strategy IMO. Nonetheless, exciting win from an exciting Stanford team. Gerhart should be a Heisman finalist lock.

Mark Ingram hurt his Heisman chances this weekend with 30 yards rushing....and he is banged up for next week's clash versus Florida.

Damn I missed something good. UCLA deserved that after trying to prolong a done game and SC taking a knee. (BTW: Jeremy Bates called that play!) This is nothing compared to Stanford going for a two pointer up by more than 3 Tds with a few minutes left on the clock. This game was a lot closer than the final score and SCs offense was very borrowing a predictable when faced with excessive yards to get for a first down. As for that Thursday night game, if SC wants to go to SD for the holiday bowl instead of El Paso, Oregon needs to win it and go to the rose bowl.

I'm hoping that sometime soon something will come of the Reggie Bush situation. I got real excited after that Yahoo report, but it seems not much has happened since then. Then again...the F$U academic cheating penalty kind of came out of the blue after the allegations had surfaced much earlier, so maybe the NCAA is just taking their time on it. I'd love to see U$C taken to the woodshed, although its unlikely. U$C makes alot of money for the NCAA so there's a conflict of interest there (you'll notice that F$U didn't get dinged until they were consistently mediocre again). In an ideal world, there would be footage on ESPN of Pete Carroll and Mike Garrett getting their heads pushed down into the back seat of a police car, but that's probably asking too much. I'll take anything at this point.....preferably bowl bans and more importantly debilitating scholarship reductions. The whole program is corrupt...as you noted, U$C basketball was completely exposed and I'm still waiting for those sanctions. It wouldn't surprise me if the volleyball team was involved in Mexican drug cartel trafficking (ok....that was a joke, but I had to throw it in there :) ). Clearly, there's a lack of institutional control, here. The program needs to be brought to its knees.

Agreed, although with Bush the question that was often debated was what the university should have known or should have reasonably been expected to know...this vagueness gave them a little wiggle on the matter of whether or not it happened because of a lack of institutional control...and then along came Tim Floyd and OJ Mayo. The latter should have removed all doubt where the former is concerned and since it all ties back to the athletic department, the two should be viewed as distinctly seperate.

Of course, the record means something to him, but I don't think that record was a factor in his decision to stay in coaching.

I don't buy the critics who say he remained in coaching to hold off Bobby Bowden.

Coaching is what Joe Paterno does.

He knows when he retires he will sit in a rocking chair and die a few years later....coaching and being active is what keeps him going.

I'm looking forward to watching #16 Oregon State versus #7 Oregon on Thursday night.

That's the reason why Bowden didn't want to hang em up. His father died months after he retired as an investment banker and the same thing happened to his idol Paul "Bear" Bryant.

I'm looking forward to watching #16 Oregon State versus #7 Oregon on Thursday night.

It should be 10X more entertaining than Jets-Bills from the Rogers Centre.

Only halftime, but Oregon-Oregon St has been one of the best games this year so far. Insane, especially given the stakes.

Kansas coach Mark Mangino has resigned two years after leading the Jayhawks to the greatest season in their football history.

ESPN's Joe Schad first reported the story on Thursday night. The university made the announcement as athletic director Lew Perkins met with players to give them the news. The two sides have reached a buyout, Schad reported

Oregon scores....2 point conversion is no good.

Oregon goes up 34-33 late in the 3rd quarter.

Excellent game.

I want to see Oregon win, as I think they would beat Ohio State in the Rose Bowl.

Glad a team from Oregon gets to go to the Rose Bowl. Would've like to see either team go, and it was a great game to watch.

Oregon has a good offense but their defense had better stiffen up or Ohio State will torch them

Tomorrow: #2 Alabama vs. #1 Florida. The SEC Championship. I'm looking forward to a great game out of these two teams. Of course, defense wins championships, so Alabama should win. The Tide have also played the tougher schedule. Florida has faced only one ranked team.
