Orgeron is a good recruiter but failed in an extended stint as HC at Ole Miss. I think they are playing on emotion right now/relief from Kiffin. I think Haden will ultimately go in a different direction. They want a big name and have allotted up to 6m per year for a home run hire (this salary would be the highest in CFB). Orgeron will likely be offered a substantial raise and associate HC position.

No love for CSUs Kapri Bibbs? 600 yards and 10 TDS the last two weeks! Rushing! Leading the nation with 25 tds on the year.

Damn, a huge jump for Oklahoma State by you. They are playing fantastic of late though.
I really hope people start voting for Florida State, they are CLEARLY the best team. Alabama is still good, but some of the players are drastically overrated. The defense is definitely not overrated, they are fantastic. It wouldn't surprise me now if Auburn upsets Alabama.
I also see Baylor losing to Oklahoma St or Texas at least.

I just don't understand how you have Clemson or OK State over Oregon. Oregon stumbled against Standford but it was close on the road. Clemson got destroyed by FSU at home and OK State struggled big time against Baylor.

I wonder who we would hire as DC if Del Rio gets the USC gig.
He seems to be the one big name candidate who actually wants the job.

If only Lovie Smith would take our DC job(Should Del Rio leave)

No, he shouldn't. He should remain on staff but he should never be the coach at USC.

Coach O said he acted at Ole Miss what he thought a coach was supposed to be like. He is now acting how he wants to act. Big difference. If we are to judge coaches by their first big act as a head coach, we would never have had Shanahan and Seattle would not have Pete Carroll.

Miami Game

Remember when I told you Vegas was stupid to have us at -18 against Wake Forest and that Wake Forest could easily win (Miami came back to edge them, 24-21) and that Vegas was stupid to have us -9 at UNC when it was going to be an absolute war, and when I said Duke would beat us last week? So Vegas is again apparently in the mood to give away free money as the casinos are posing as Santa a little bit early. Miami is favored by 19.5 against Virginia this week. If you want to make some easy money, take Virginia at +19.5. There is absolutely no ****ing way we will cover that. Miami SHOULD win the game, but it will be probably around 7-10 points. In the last three games, our defense has given up a total of 1600 yards (this would be terrible even over 4 games) and given up over 40 points to three straight opponents, two of which have weak offenses. Virginia WILL get its points (even though they are like 2-8). Mike London has also had our number the last two years for some weird reason. He just has a hex on Golden.

Miami 38, Virginia 30 (take the points, its FREE money)

#16 Northern Illinois (10-0 overall and 6-0 MAC) take on my Toledo Rockets (7-3 overall and 5-1 MAC) tonight in the Glass Bowl at 8 PM Eastern Time on ESPN 2.

Should be a good game if anyone is looking for their Wednesday football fix.

Northern Illinois has won 23 straight conference games....it's time for the Rockets to end that streak.

I'm hoping RB David Fluellen is back for Toledo after missing a few games due to injuries, but if not, freshman RB Kareem Hunt has filled in nicely, with 4 straight games of 100+ yards rushing. Hunt has had 595 yards rushing in those 4 games (6.8 yards per carry), as well as 6 rushing TDs.

On defense, the Rockets have seen redshirt freshman NT Treyvon Hester dominate the last several games, tying up multiple blockers and freeing up the linebackers to make plays. I look for the 6'3 and 290 pound redshirt freshman to be a solid pro prospect when he's done playing college ball.

Overall some pro prospects/interesting players to watch for the Rockets are: C Zac Kerin, RB David Fluellen and RB Kareem Hunt (only a freshman), WR/KR/PR Bernard Reedy, WR Alonzo Russell (sophomore), the previously mentioned redshirt freshman NT Treyvon Hester, DE Jayrone Elliott, and Will LB Junior Sylvestre.

And it's not even close, next highest total is 19. The dude is running at 6.5 YPA too. Just crazy to see after how futile CSU's last decade has been for the most part with two minor blips in 2005 and 2008 where they at least became (barely) bowl eligible.

It's ridiculous that he isn't even on any Heisman watch lists despite accounting for more point production than AJ McCaron, who is on almost every watch list out there. I guess that comes with the MWC territory, but if he keeps up this ridiculous pace for his last 2 games, one would hope that the nation will take notice.

Plus he's only a sophomore. Here's to hoping for some national relevancy soon.

Northern Illinois misses a 47 yard FG right before the half.

Rockets lead 10-7 at the half.

Northern Illinois drives right down the field to start the 2nd half.

That was too easy for the Huskies.

Northern leads 14-10.

Nice answer by Toledo....pound the ball down the field to set up a Terrance Owens to Bernard Reedy TD pass.

Rockets lead 17-14.

I'm tired of watching Northern Illinois dominate the MAC.

Feels like it did back when Marshall was kicking ass in the MAC in the late 90s and early 2000s.

I don't really hate Northern Illinois, I'm more tired of seeing them beat my Rockets every season.

Northern Illinois is actually good for the conference, as they get the MAC attention and exposure.

DNA testing links Jameis Winston to accuser per ESPN.

http://espn.go.com/college-football/...inston-accuser

As Scooby Doo might say...."ruh roh". Jacob Coker is out for the year and Trickett transferred in the spring. They got nothing behind him.....Sean Maguire would be the guy. It would be funny seeing a 3rd stringer start the title game.

A guy playing in an extremely weak conference on a 6-5 team likely isn't going to be on the Heisman list.

Sure is fun watching him destroy the opponents every Saturday though.

That game last week was just ridiculous.
