This is a steal for Wisconsin....ex-North Carolina State and all ACC QB Russell Wilson is able to transfer without having to sit out a year.

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=6708649

Russell Wilson transferring to Badgers

Wisconsin gets a 3 year starter to step right in and play for a year.

Russell Wilson was good at NC State, but head coach Tom O'Brien didn't like him playing minor league baseball....so he let him transfer.

8,545 career passing yards with 76 career TD passes and only 26 INTs.

1,089 career rushing yards with 17 rushing TDs.

Pretty good athlete.

Seems stupid for Tom O'Brien to ask him to leave for wanting to try baseball this year....it's not like he is a great NFL prospect at 5'11 and 201 pounds....let him see if he has a future in baseball. The kid started for you for 3 years and deserved to play his senior season. I'm sure he would still be ok missing some of the offseason workouts.

Two Articles About Sooners In The Secondary


SAFETY - Aaron Colvin Link (http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/blog/dr_saturday/post/The-Doc-8217-s-Up-and-Coming-Team-Meet-2011-8?urn=ncaaf-wp3019#remaining-content)

Colvin turned a few heads last year as an unexpected freshman contributor at cornerback, even earning his first (and only) career start against Texas before settling in as a nickel corner for the rest of the season. This spring, though, the glaring need in the secondary was at safety, where Colvin assumed the vacancy left by another converted corner, Jonathan Nelson, to fairly rave reviews.

Colvin may be small for a conventional strong safety at 5-10/175 pounds, but — as with Nelson — Bob Stoops has explicitly emphasized coverage at that spot over Ronnie Lott-style headhunting. If you believe his coach, his latest project has also been pleasantly quick on the uptake.

CORNERBACK - Gabe Lynn Link (http://www.tulsaworld.com/sportsextra/OU/article.aspx?subjectid=92&articleid=20110627_92_B6_CUTLIN366826)

As Oklahoma gears up for the 2011 season, one Sooner defensive back says he's poised for a breakout season.

Gabe Lynn, a redshirt sophomore and Jenks High School graduate, volunteered at the Felix Jones "Go Hard Football Academy" at Chapman Stadium on Saturday and said he is confident about his role heading into this season at OU.

"I think I've finally got my chance," Lynn said. "I'm ready to step up this year and show what I can do."

In 2010, Lynn had a limited role in the defensive backfield, appearing in seven games. His best performance came against Florida State, when he recorded one pass breakup and recovered a fumble.

But this season he is listed as one of the starting cornerbacks on the Sooners' depth chart. Lynn is part of a young OU secondary that has only one senior, backup safety Sam Proctor. Although most of the national attention might be on OU's offense, Lynn said the Sooner defense will be strong as well.

Lynn said Travis Lewis will continue to be the Sooners' leader on defense. Lewis recorded a team-high 109 tackles last year before deciding to not to forgo his senior season and enter the NFL draft.

"We feel really good about the defense," Lynn said. "We made a couple changes, but we had a good spring, so we're ready to go."

Lynn will be joined by as many as three redshirt freshman who will look to get playing time this fall in the Sooner defensive backfield.

"We've got some young guys who will step up, a lot of new names people are going to hear about," Lynn said.

Redshirt freshman defensive end/linebacker Chris Martin played what he termed an “early April Fools” joke back in March, claiming that he had been dismissed from the Florida Gators. The University of Florida was not joking Friday evening when it announced that Martin, a former five-star recruit who transferred to Florida from California a year ago, has decided to transfer once again.

Having never suited up for the Gators, Martin will leave the program without making any notable mark other than having been arrested on Jan. 29 for misdemeanor possession of marijuana. The Gainesville Police Department cited Martin for possession of less than two grams after detecting “the cent of the drug coming from [his] vehicle.” He was offered and accepted deferred prosecution by the state.

Martin will be forced to sit out yet another season due to NCAA transfer rules unless he moves to a Division-II program.

He will be the fifth Florida player to leave the program since head coach Will Muschamp arrived. Senior cornerback Janoris Jenkins was dismissed from the team following two marijuana arrests in less than 90 days and redshirt freshman wide receiver Chris Dunkley, freshman WR Javares McRoy and freshman running back Mike Blakely all decided to transfer for various reasons.

Martin’s transfer was first reported by the Orlando Sentinel‘s Rachel George.

I renewed my Toledo Rocket Season Tickets this year.

Similar deal to last year, but not quite as good.

$59.95 for 2 tickets to every game....that is less than $10 a game for tickets.

$59.95 for 2 tickets to 6 home games, free parking passes, $8 worth of food vouchers for every game (last year it was $10) and a $40 gift card to the Rocket Shop (last year it was $50).

Still....they are basically giving them away....I may only go to 4 games or so and give the rest away, but it is still a great deal.

They play a good brand of football and are a team on the rise again.

Boise State plays at Toledo this year....probably take an ass whooping in the game.

I had Michigan season tickets for several years, but was spending close to $200 a game on tickets, $25 in gas, $20 for parking, and $20 on food and drinks for 2 people.

About $250 to $300 a game....they usually played 6 or 7 home games.

A few years ago I spent that money on a sweet LCD tv and enjoy watching the games at home.

I'm still able to catch a game anytime I want up there, as I know plenty of people with tickets.

That said, 6 or 7 games of $250 to $300 in expenses was too much....especially with Katie being born.

The cost of all the Toledo Rocket (2) tickets for every game, parking, food and drinks, and $40 gift card is cheaper than one single ticket to a Michigan game.

Disgraced Bush has reneged on a promise to return his Heisman Trophy

Disgraced USC running back Reggie Bush has reneged on a promise to return his 2005 Heisman Trophy, the website Sports by Brooks reported.

Sports by Brooks corroborated reports earlier this month on The Dan Patrick Show that Bush hadn’t returned the trophy he won while ineligible (leading to USC being put on probation, blah, blah, blah).

Sports by Brooks took it one step further, writing that “a source close to Bush” said he “has decided he will not return” the trophy. In September, Bush announced he would forfeit the award.

Rumor that one of the big three in Florida is next in the NCAA's crosshairs after Oregon, based on a comment from Bill Greene of Scout. Hoping its not us....only thing it could be is the whole Nevin Shapiro thing, but he's got credibility issues given his troubles/conviction in financial matters.

I'm going to be really pissed off if its us since we didn't even win any games under Shannon. At least produce if you're going to do that kind of crap.

SSJ, I've always enjoyed your posts because you have been level headed about everything. If I were you I wouldn't get too excited until the NCAA rules. If the NCAA hammer falls on OSU, Michigan will reap the benefits of the great in state talent that Ohio produces (something they have always needed to field a good team). If OSU does not get hammered and OSU sucks, they will fire Fickell and bring in a big time coach and still quickly rebound. I think we know what recruits will do If OSU does not get hammered and does well. OSU will always have the advantage if they can keep the kids in state. As always, good luck to you except when you play OSU, I hope Michigan can become increasingly competitive, its for the good of the rivalry and the conference.

I'm stirring **** up because I'm bored and need some actual football to talk about.

I do feel Michigan is on the right track to be a top team again. Brady Hoke was a good hire, but him hiring Greg Mattison was a coup. Mattison is a great defensive coordinator....and an even better recruiter.

Mattison was the defensive coordinator for the Ravens and left that job to come to Michigan. Before that he was defensive coordinator for Florida and was known as an awesome recruiter there. He has been the defensive coordinator at Michigan and coached with Hoke there in the 90s. I also think he was a defensive coordinator at Notre Dame for a few years.

Mike Leach's Book - Swing Your Sword

"My biggest regret was not cutting Adam James" - Mike Leach

"Adam [James] was a kid who seemed like he had been given everything he wanted his whole life and acted like if things did not go exactly how he wanted, then it was because someone was treating him unfairly or his failures were somebody else's fault. He was a selfish player on and off the field who was counterproductive for our team and would be for any other team."
-- Graham Harrell, Texas Tech, QB, 2004-2008




http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2011/writers/the_bonus/07/11/leach.book.excerpt/index.html?sct=hp_wr_a1&eref=sihp


Leach's book, which includes transcripts of depositions and e-mails sent by the PR firm -- including a particularly enlightening series of e-mails in which the firm's employees attempt to determine the best way to drive traffic to a YouTube clip that seemed to support the story -- puts the lie to that tale. Adam James was sent to a room large enough to accommodate a visiting media horde, but he chose to go into the closet and film himself with his cellphone. No matter the truth, the controversy was precisely what Hance needed at the time. Still smarting over the fact that Leach and his agents bested the school in a contract negotiation, the chancellor ensured Leach would be fired just in time for Texas Tech to wriggle out from paying a large retention bonus.
(A little more than a year later, Texas Tech would hire basketball coach Billy Gillispie, who once made one of his Kentucky players spend an entire halftime in a bathroom stall and then sent him home on the team equipment truck. Apparently in the eyes of the people in charge in Lubbock, one man's brutality is another man's motivational technique.)

Don't forget State. Especially with Dantonio, they've got the inside track to Ohio that they never had before. If OSU falls, it'll be a dogfight between State, UM and PSU for Ohio recruits. I think everyone is always so quick to going with either UM or OSU (and with good reason, they used to be the only two teams worth mentioning), but Wisco and State are two teams that are poised to make their mark and stay there IMO.

It doesn't matter its a private network for them alone. How do you think they can they can break then? Texas contract with espn, Big Ten contract with Fox. How do you think that will play out?

It's a good move for UT…but it's not Earth shattering. The SEC deal with ESPN…that may be Earth shattering.

Remember when he broke his leg a few years back and was up in the booth? No headset, no coaching.

That's only 15 million per year…..Northwestern makes more than that yearly from the B10 Network alone.

Yeah, 15 mil from their personal network plus as it stands right now, 25 mil from the BIg 12 contract so 40 million a year for Texas.

No one is remotely close to that. No one.

Edit: If Texas goes independent their contract gets renegotiated. The first tier games will now be shown on the LHN and THAT is worth at least 3 times what the current contract is. If Texas goes independent and the LHN and ESPN now get to show all of Texas' football games on their network (away games not exclusive but home games exclusively), then that is worth at least 1 billion over the course of 20 years. Do the math on that, its 50 million a year, not including revenue from Bowl games or the NCAA tournament which they would not have to split with their conference since they are independent.

No. The Big 10 wont let Texas have its own network. The Pac 12 might. But the Big 10 network does not allow member institutions to have their own network.

Texas is not interested in the SEC because of the academics of the conference.

IF A&M really goes to the SEC this is what I can see possibly happening.

Scenario 1: SEC goes to 14 schools.

SEC grabs Mizzou in addition to A&M because OU and OSU wont separate.

Big 10 nabs OU and OSU.

Pac 12 goes after Texas, gets rebuffed because UT goes Indy, turns their attention to Tech and Boise State.

KU gets the offer from the Big East (because I have it on good authority the Big East was salivating to get KU if the Big 12 had folded last year).

KSU, ISU and Baylor have to find homes in mid majors.

Scenario 2: SEC Goes to 16 schools
SEC takes OU, OSU and A&M and Mizzou.

Big 10 raids the Big East to get those large east coast markets in the Big 10 network. Cuse, Pitt, Louisville for sure and maybe one more.

Pac 12 goes hard after Texas Tech, KU and KState, and maybe Boise State.

Tech isn't a great school but it still gives the Pac 12 an inroad into Texas recruiting. SEC in this scenario makes out like bandits. They get good programs in OU, A&M and Ok State AND inroads into Texas AND Oklahoma recruiting. Okie State has a good hoops program, a good football program and, ironically, the best wrestling program in the country. (I know this doesnt count for much but in the grand scheme of things, OSU brings more Athletic titles than ANY team in the Big 12 does and its not even close)

The Big East schools that dont have football programs are out in teh cold. Along with ISU and Baylor from the Big 12.

Just two possible scenarios.

Edit: SEC goes for Mizzou instead of an ACC team like Va Tech, FSU or Ga Tech because the SEC Commissioner already stated they are not looking to raid stable conferences for teams.

This realignment is terrible for us. It would destroy the conference. Even with UM and VT remaining, the ACC would have to bring in ND (highly unlikely) to remain a viable conference with an AQ spot.

I've been told that Texas will be allowed to keep their network, but won't receive any of the Big 10 money. Nobody really knows what is going to happen, but this sure is fun. I'd love to add Notre Dame, Texas and Oklahoma though, that would rival the SEC.

I know for a fact that the SEC and the B10 are currently battling for Missouri. If Mizzou goes to the SEC the B10 will go after Virginia Tech.

This isn't so much about football for the Big Ten as it is about research dollars.

Schools that are not getting PAC 12 invites:

Tech (not without Texas joining)
Boise
Kansas
K State

Those schools don't bring in TV sets and their academics suck, especially KSU, Boise, and Tech. No chance at all. Not happening.

The PAC 12 might go to 16 with the original list from last year with already admitted Utah taking A&M's place, but they're not taking the LHN with their current network set up. The PAC-Whatever isn't going to let Texas run the show like they do in the Big XII.

Joe Pa is a legend. I have a ton of respect for him, but he has been holding Penn St. back for years. Pennsylvania produces a lot of football talent and it leaves the state year after year (I wish Pryor would have stayed in state). He is a figured head and raises a lot of money for the school, but they could hire a better/younger staff to replace his staff. They would be able to relate more to kids today.

I'm saying the coaches know each other kinda like a fraternity and they know what each team brings to the table. One coach does not have to evaluate 119 teams, he just knows the good teams via talking to other coaches and looking at the roster, the coaching staff and film. I'd say it's pretty accurate.

you right, they are not 100% correct but they aren't all that far off either if you look at the entire top 25 rankings. Obviously they whiffed on Stanford but they hit on OSU, were close on TCU and pretty close on Oregon. Auburn was ranked in the top 25 and finished number one, but they still had Auburn in the top 25.

It's not perfect by any stretch but the difference between the top 10 and the top 25 can be one game, that is, one loss for a highly ranked team can destroy their season.

CBF1 is saying OU can't compete with the SEC and I'm saying that is wrong, and the coaches agree. CBF1 said that "OU cannot beat the SEC" and I'm saying the coaches in the NCAA disagree. Now you are saying that these rankings are meaningless and yep, your right. However the assumption that the SEC will walk all over OU is just wrong. They've had as strong of a football program as any college team in history and there is no reason to say they can't compete with the SEC.

We've got two terrific RB's and if at full strength, the best OL in the nation, bar none. WR's are deep but not all of them are consistent. TE is a problem area, with alot of bodies but not any proven studs. Senior QB is garbage, sophomore QB is very promising. One great pass rushing DE, one good run defending DE, one tremendous true freshman DE, starting DT's are okay, but there's a depth issue there. MLB is a weakness, but OLB's are pretty good. CB's are among the worst in the nation, and the starters at S are okay, but there's no depth, there.

This is a very different team that got assraped by ND. There are now competent coaches, who have gone out of their way to instill discipline and most importantly, physical conditioning. There's no one that is going to wear down this team in the 4th quarter.

Golden Al is also one of the best recruiters in America. It shouldn't be too long before we're back on top, consistently in the Top 10. Perhaps 2 years. I think this is an 8-4 team this year, though.

If you waltz into Miami on September 17th and think you'll coast to a win, you're fixin to get blown out.....and punched in the mouth. (BTW, I would not recommend going to that game if I were you.....O$U fans are going to be treated about as well as Washington fans were at the OB in 2001).

The thing we have going for us at this time is that Shapiro is basically a Bernie Madoff. He's currently in prison for being a ponzi schemer and wiping out almost a billion dollars of other people's money, so there's an instant credibility issue. However, he has been bragging for some time that he's going to take the program down. He was very upset that when he got into trouble with financial regulators and went to former players (presumably in the league now) for money, they didn't help him, so I guess he's claiming he's going to expose whatever he knows. He's been claiming for awhile, that among other things, he paid alot of players. He said he would also be writing a book about it, but we haven't seen anything yet (he also claims he has a good deal of documentation). Randy Shannon got this guy out of the program a few years ago, so I don't think his allegations regarding anything recent, not that it matters.

I've been worried about this for months now, as its been rumored there would be an article in August and that it would be pretty bad. We'll see.

One great pass rushing DE, one good run defending DE, one tremendous true freshman DE, starting DT's are okay, but there's a depth issue there. MLB is a weakness, but OLB's are pretty good. CB's are among the worst in the nation, and the starters at S are okay, but there's no depth, there.

This is a very different team that got assraped by ND. There are now competent coaches, who have gone out of their way to instill discipline and most importantly, physical conditioning. There's no one that is going to wear down this team in the 4th quarter.

Golden Al is also one of the best recruiters in America. It shouldn't be too long before we're back on top, consistently in the Top 10. Perhaps 2 years. I think this is an 8-4 team this year, though.

If you waltz into Miami on September 17th and think you'll coast to a win, you're fixin to get blown out.....and punched in the mouth. (BTW, I would not recommend going to that game if I were you.....O$U fans are going to be treated about as well as Washington fans were at the OB in 2001).


Nope, not going to the game. OSU will lose that game due to inexperience at the QB position. But it will be a contest.

Just pray Harris doesn't throw the game away.

Yes, I'm well aware of the story and have been for many months now.

There will be a Yahoo story about it tomorrow and we're hearing tonight from insiders that the allegations will be pretty bad. It depends on what proof this guy has. He's been bragging for awhile that he was going to bring the program down. He was a former booster, but given his current status, he has an axe to grind and a credibility problem by way of being a convicted felon and a ponzi schemer. But yes, it is a serious matter that the fanbase has been aware of for some time now.

I know. This has the potential to get out of control fast and very little evidence is required for that to happen. It's largely just a PR game. The only card Miami has here is that its going to be rather awkward for the NCAA to claim that the chairman of its Infractions committee was running a rogue program.

If it wasn't bad enough that I'm battling a horrible cold that might include strep throat, the ****ing Yahoo report is really terrible...and those guys are very detailed.

I feel bad for Golden. He was going to take this program places....big places...BCS places. He's way ahead of the curve, especially in recruiting. He would have been an all-time great here. He's going to have to flee now, though, and I don't blame him. We're going to get USC style punishment and that's going to take awhile to overcome, he can't stick around for 5 years trying to build it up just to something decent like 8-4, when he wasn't part of the problem to begin with. That's just unfair to ask. That makes me very sad. The program is going to get raped. Shapiro better get ****ing clobbered in prison when he gets transferred to Miami-Dade. I'm willing to accept the penalties, even if they are rather severe, what's fair for the OSU's and USC's is fair for us, that's fine, but I all I ask is that this guy get absolutely ****ing destroyed in prison.

And yes, if there are a bunch of guys on the current roster that took benefits, they should be suspended en masse as was the case for UNC last season. We need to hope for all the political muscle Donna can bring here....as well as using former Infractions Cmte. Chairman Paul Dee as a defense witness, in order to help avoid the institutional control allegation.

Couldn't be happier about this, not that it's Miami but because of the blatant smear campaign SI and ESPN put Ohio State through it's good to see the truth about other programs and maybe now the focus will be off the Buckeyes.

SI and ESPN tried their best to get everything possible pinned on OSU, and the majority of it has come up false, and now the school is not looking at major penalties, much to the dismay of the entire country.

And this is worse than USC, if true. USC got popped for 1 player over a span of 2 years, Miami is dozens of players over 8 years. This could be bad big time for the program, add on their past probations and problems and I wouldn't be surprised to see them get drilled extra harsh.

3. Colorado State will make a bowl game. The Rams have a bevy of starters returning, including quarterback Pete Thomas, who took his share of lumps as a true freshman last season but showed signs of potential. Linebacker Mychal Sisson also returns to anchor the defense after leading the nation last season with seven forced fumbles. The schedule sets up perfectly for Colorado State, too. The toughest nonconference game is Colorado, so at worst the Rams should be 3-1 in those games, meaning they need three wins in eight conference games to become bowl-eligible.

These suspensions pretty much lost us the Maryland game. There is no DL, anymore. I think one day Anthony Chickillo WILL be an All-American, he's that good, but asking him to take half the snaps as a true freshman against an ACC opponent is going to be a little much. Losing Vernon for 6 games is a huge loss. He's the best pass rusher and best overall DE and Ojomo is a good run defender. DE is pretty ugly vs. Maryland. DT is paper thin, but thankfully Forston will be back after 1 game. Losing Spence for 1 game hurts, but he'll be back for OSU. Ray Ray for 4 games really hurts, there is no safety depth. They're moving JoJo back there, which is meh. CB is going to get exposed considering JoJo was going to be the No. 1 CB before they had to move him.

IMO, Maryland is going to have a great night offensively, IMO 400+ yards and 30+ points. You can't take that many high quality starters off the defense and expect them to play well on the road. We'll score points offensively, Morris is actually a better QB than Harris, so Harris being out doesn't hurt. Losing TB will cost us a big play or two, but I think Street, Byrd and Hurns will be alright. We're going to move the ball on the ground, 15 carries for each of the two backs and lots of PA.

It will be very tough to win this game. With Vernon and Ray Ray out an extended period, the OSU game is probably gone as well.

These suspensions are the least of UM's problems…

This is an indication that what Shapiro said was dead on. Not only was he implicated in the current players doings, but also "athletics personnel." That indicates a wide spread problem.

There is a concern about that, but we've been cooperating fully with the NCAA (unlike USC) so that's a factor. Also, the NCAA has cleared several of our guys and now its out that we hired a private investigator to follow Shapiro and came up with nothing, so there's some oversight there. I'm sure there will be significant sanctions, but the vibes I'm getting and the info I'm hearing suggests its not going to be as bad as I was fearing. Still significant, though.

USC got buried partly because they didn't play nice with the NCAA.

OSU will get a slap on the wrist for self reporting and working with the NCAA the whole way.

Outside of those games, UCLA-Houston, BYU-Ole Miss, Baylor-TCU, South Florida-Notre Dame, Texas A&M-SMU, Colorado-Hawai'i, Northwestern-Boston College are the best of the rest.


With all the suspensions, Miami (Fla.)-Maryland on Monday night has lost its luster.

I think, ultimately, they'd prefer to have OSU with them, but if the whole conference falls apart they'll be looking out for #1. As we saw, A&M seems willing to divorce the Longhorns. If this does end up in four 16-team megaconferences, though, I do think the Pac-12 (16?) would take in OSU along with OU. Both teams would be in the upper half of the current PAC.

Me too. Definitely showed he has the tools to make Wisconsin a legitimate offensive threat, but he'll have to prove he can manage a game in conference where he'll have to win games where they score under 30. If he can play smart against the OSU/Nebraska/Penn St level defenses he can have a great year. Big 10 will be a dogfight in both divisions. Ohio St vs Wisconsin plus what I think will be an improved Michigan. Nebraska vs Mich St vs Iowa.

Their defense is returning some real blue-chippers like Tony Jefferson, Fleming, Travis Lewis (who is injured but will return), and a host of other disruptive/fast/physical players.
