We could use him at AU or LSU...but $49 mil says Gus ain't going nowhere <_<

Speaking of money,i see Jimbo is already having accusations thrown around about his staff slinging cash around...at least AU didn't give Gus 70+ mil guaranteed like A&M did lol

Who in the Big 10 will get in trouble next. So far Penn St, Mich St, Ohio St, and Maryland. I'm thinking Wiscy.

 

Meyers 1 week, 3 games suspension is comical. Or I should say the tOSU report makes for some comical reading. He made false statements to the media and the public but he didn't deliberately lie? He has memory problems (to go along with his well known heart condition) yet can remember every play from the 2008 and 2009 SECCGs? 

 

Oh well, BAMA, and some other teams, play in 10 days!! :)

Honestly,i thought Urban was going to get burned at the stake...

But i guess schools know championship caliber coaches don't come along very often,and Jimbo set that bar with Winstons antics...

Best games on paper atleast for opening weekend are AU vs Washington,LSU vs Miami,and FAU vs Oklahoma...

@BrooklynGuy

Is ND vs Michigan 1st week or second?...can't remember lol,if 1st add that one aswell.

That makes 4 really good ones for opening weekend!

Yeah i'm not sure who's is worse Auburns or Michigans...

AU gets Washington out the gate at a Neutral sight,then Miss St,Georgia,and Bama all on the road...

I think Auburn winds up as the best 8-4 team in the country...i'd be over the moon just getting to 10 wins this season!

I'm ready for the Purdue vs Northwestern game on Thursday. 

Purdue will struggle on defense since they lost 8 starters.   The offense should be good though.   I'm hoping they can make a second straight bowl appearance.

Should be a great game Myles, Purdue is on the upswing and Northwestern always fields a strong team
