    What a bad way to celebrate a touchdown.

    ESPN's Mark Schlabach, surprisingly, did not rank Notre Dame in their first preseason look at next season. that will naturally change come August, because they can't seem to resist the Irish, unfortunately. :p

    I think Notre Dame's absence is justified. They're simply losing too much on offense, and they didn't have any defense at all last year, so I don't see how anyone can justify putting ND in the top 25 for next year.

    Adrian Peterson just issued a statement saying that he hasn't made a decision yet. A small bit of hope remains. [​IMG]

    Bill Gramatica anyone? [​IMG]

    I like the prediction that Adrian Peterson might end up with the Texans.

    Funny thing is that Spiller originally commited to Florida then backed out for Clemson. I bet he wishes he had stuck with the original decision now..... [​IMG]

    Looks like Spiller is staying at Clemson but there are rumors that he is applying for a hardship that would allow him to transfer to Florida in the Spring without sitting out a year. He is the father of a young child and if granted would allow him to transfer to a school closer to home without any penalty to his playing status.

    Looks like Notre Dame is attempting to plug that defensive hole by hiring the New York Jets defensive backs coach Corbin Brown. This should sit with Michigan fans because of his alumni status. Young energetic up and comer similar to Walker of UCLA.

    DE: Ray McDonald - Sr
    DE: Jarvis Moss - Jr going pro
    DT: Steven Harris - Sr
    DT: Joe Cohen - Sr
    WLB: Earl Everett - Sr
    MLB: Brandon Siler - Jr going pro
    SLB: Brian Crum - Sr
    CB: Reggie Lewis - Sr
    CB: Ryan Smith - Jr going pro
    FS: Reggie Nelson - Jr going pro
    SS: Tony Joiner - Jr returning

    The NCAA revoked a couple of the clock rules instituted last season -- restarting the clock after change of possession and when the ball is kicked on a kickoff. This is an excellent decision, IMO.

    Ah, since this thread is on page 1, this is a perfect opportunity for me to ask what all you college football fans who oppose the BCS and want a playoff are doing to change the situation?

    Where is the outrage you display every November, December and January? It's easy to complain then, but the time to make a difference is now.

    Just like teams win championships in the off-season by working hard and preparing, you can win your BCS battle by writing your congressman, university president, BCS sponsors, etc., and saying in a united voice:

    We will not tolerate this BCS BS anymore! We will not buy another season ticket, we will not buy another pay-per-view telecast, we will not buy any more college merchandise until the system is changed.

    Are any of you BCS haters on this crusade? For all the whining that goes on around here, I'd be very disappointed if you all are not being proactive 12 months a year, instead of just being reactive during bowl season.

    you know I realized something during march madness.

    I didn't give a hoot about college basketball during the entire regular season, (I watched bits of the championship weekend games) but I avidly followed all of March Madness.

    Now I've said there should be a playoff, but I wonder how much interest I would invest in the regular season if there was a playoff, probably significantly less interest. So I'm somewhat content to stay with the current system, flawed as it may be, though I'd be in favor of adaptation to merge the bcs and playoffconcept in some way.

    Those were wise decisions. I saw a game last season where Wisconsin had scored a touchdown right before halftime. When Wisconsin kicked off after the touchdown they were deliberately go offsides so the clock would wind down to practically no time left. After that incident I think the NCAA modified the rules on kick-offs, but not sure what they did.
