Re: 2012-13 College Football Discussion Thread

Gruden has a pretty hefty price tag..Why would Tennessee or Auburn who I'm assuming still gonna be paying Dooley & Chizik millions, shell out the type of money Gruden would be asking for?

Surely Dooley of all people wasn't getting a great paycheck.

Just looked it up.. Tennessee will be paying him until 2016, unless they buy out his deal for 5 mil, which is a samll amount compared to most SEC coaches right?..What the heck did he do to get so many years on his deal?

If Kent State makes it, no second berth for Big 12 (Oklahoma). Sugar likely takes Big East champ, Dri Archer to the Orange Bowl.
When was the last Orange Bowl that ppl were actually excited to watch?

Spaziani (BC coach)? He gone. Embree (Colorado coach)? He gone.

Dooley somehow made Louisiana Tech respectable, and was the son of someone famous, more the later than the former I suspect.

Dooley did dick at Louisiana Tech. He had one winning season sandwiched in between two abysmal seasons.

Prior to Saban coming to LSU, his agent Jimmy Sexton had done a little research and discovered that more NFL players are born and raised in the state of Louisiana per capita than any other state in the country. Saint Nick knew that if he could build a hypothetical fence around the Louisiana borders and keep the best prospects in the state, he would win. Nonetheless, a few of his first few recruiting visits included Marquise Hill, Marcus Spears, and Michael Clayton - all of whom went on to play for LSU and meaningful snaps in the NFL.

All Dooley had to do at Louisiana Tech was pick from LSU's leftovers and he would have been successful in the WAC had he stayed. Dooley bit off way more than he could chew at that point in his career when he accepted the Tennessee job following that screwjob by Kiffin.

Re: 2012-13 College Football Discussion Thread

Capitol One Bowl tweeted last night (Yes bowl committees do have twitter accounts) that If Nebraska beats Wisconsin, they will choose between Northwestern/Michigan. If Wisconsin wins, they'll choose between Nebraska/Northwestern..On the SEC side its seems it will come down to SEC Champ loser/A&M/LSU/South Carolina

Personal Opinion: LSU vs Michigan

I'm off to see what these other accounts are yapping about lol

This is true, as LT stayed relevant, won the WAC last year, competed for it this year, and is now on their way to CUSA.
