After paying his dues, my son gets to finally officially cover Gator football. @alligatorSports: Football writer @Bfarrell727 breaks down DC Todd Grantham's two-pronged defensive strategy and how

There is also great optimism outside Michigan that the deal gets wrapped up soon. 

Between Notre Dame and Dabo today Jesus has to really be rethinking his corporate sponsorships......

No temptations to let your hair down in Austin....

Strange timing for sure.  Wonder where Herman ends up. 

Wish the FSU opening was this year instead of last year. I think he’s a good coach.

I will be curious to see Texas fan reactions after all of the pitchforks for Herman lately when they realize they hired a guy who went 34-29 at Washington and 12-6 at SC. Woof, don’t like it at all and not at the $$$ it cost them.

the idea of basically holding kids hostage for 4-5 years because of a decision some of them made at 16, 17, 18 years old does seem kind of gross

Agreed

Should be a fun final. Particularly since Clemson isn't in it.

I don't think either Bama or OSU is particularly impressive in the secondary.

🤷🏼‍♂️ Surtain is one of the best corners in the game. The secondary isn't the strength for Alabama, but it's still pretty good. Opposing passing stats are a bit misleading when they usually have a large lead.

ESPN noting Texas was after Meyer and Brian Kelly ( 🤣 ) too. Man oh man they can have Kelly if they want him. 

Kelly's answer to the reporter after the Bama beatdown where he was basically crying about local media was not so good. I'm guessing this isn't the first time he cried about this.

I know we're all dealing with Florida Gator fans but OU fans we need to stop and recognize something truly important Texas just lost an FCS OL grad transfer recruiting battle to Duke.

They're good players in each. Surtain II looks like a really great NFL prospect, loved watching his dad.

Just seems like relatively weak units on stacked teams going up against very strong passing games that scheme very well. Oz made a good point that playing with leads does tend to distort the stats.

Well, you have to consider the high level of QB play.  Not sure of the ND QB but Trevor Laurence is likely the top pick of the NFL draft. 

I have to give credit to Fields.  See Chris Fowler's comments.

The Bama issues are led by the DL...I think the lines on both sides will be the key matchup, as the OSU DL and Bama OL are both strengths.

I see and have heard that Sark is the guy at Texas and now I have heard that Sark turned the job down. @davivdpollack47

This has to be timing confusion or a negotiation...no way Texas fires Herman without their guy locked in.

Interesting choice by Ole Miss to give Kiffin a new contract after going  4-5 in a weak SEC.

Seems like the best they can possibly do to me...Id be surprised if they kept him long.

Sark had a couple of opportunities to become HC over the last 12 months, but Alabama indicated they would go with him post Saban...Texas, however, is to good to pass up...He did a wonderful job at Washington and has grown significantly as a person...If it's him it's a good hire

I don't see how having the best talent and almost an automatic bid in the playoffs each year and being the number 2 guy in Tuscaloosa ... taking the Texas job seems like a step down.

Anyone in here still believe college football is a superior product to the NFL?

The gap has to have at least narrowed?

If "product" includes atmosphere, tailgating, stadiums, pre/post events, absolutely...hands down, no question.

And the fact that I actually have a tangible connection to the team/school. The Bears might as well be a division of AT&T.

Seahawks, Chiefs, Packers only NFL venues I have seen a game that come close to tailgating I did at a Tennessee / Alabama game Saturday night game a few years ago. I have zero interest in either of those teams but that was one of the craziest, most intense events I have ever been to.

Bama was up like 21 after the 1st quarter, thought people may die that night.

It’s done. He’ll coach the CFP Champ game then head to Austin.
