    He should use it in DII. He would still be able to dominate.

    Planit, what happens if Mushcamp is found guilty? Trouble for the Gators? I doubt anything will come of it (and there won't be sanctions for Florida), but as someone who has had to go through a coaching change and sanctions, it isn't fun. Here's to hoping that it was just Chizek and the idiot Auburn Administration...

    College football is a farce. I'm just about ready to be done, unless a major shakeup occurs.

    I'm wondering if the Ed Obannon lawsuit against the NCAA will be the catalyst for a shakeup.

    I heard something about this briefly on espn - can't access your story on work computer - but from what I heard its all hearsay on the asst. coaches. Muschamp (Coach Boom) has been in 2 or 3 other programs since that time as well. From what I here in the SEC region, Auburn was trying to go all out and do anything to knock 'Bama dominance down.

    What do you guys think of Brady Hoke's comment about ND chickening out on their rivalry with Michigan?

    Notre Dame joining the ACC doesn't make much sense, but then again not much makes sense in college football nowadays.

    I have many comments, but I will leave them alone. I think he is just trying to amp up his team. I think ND realizes that Hoke will most likely be getting fired about the time they stop playing each other... that is what 5-7 teams get you at Michigan.

    I think the ND made the right move in going to the ACC over the Big 10 though. Other than OSU (which will be perennially great under Meyer) the rest of the conference is a dumpster fire.

    Although I support your thought, the Big10 is going to be fine. Michigan will be okay, Wisconsin will most likely end up okay after they figure out the coaching change, Michigan State should be alright, Penn State will be good again, and Nebraska should be above average. I still don't understand why the Big10 is taking Maryland and Rutgers (from a purely sports side), but who knows.

    Based on this observation, then every school (minus maybe 3-4 programs) not in the SEC is a dumpster fire.

    They would still hammer the lower-tier teams in the Big 10 though.

    Yeah, to be fair, all these top recruits are like this nowadays. Everyone around them is telling them how great they are so I guess this kind of shameless chest-bumping should be expected.

    How did Michigan get the #2 recruit in the country? I thought these kids only went to SEC schools.

    Maybe he wants to get an education?

    He might have thought Michigan was an SEC school. I don't think he's a scholar by any stretch of the imagination.

    He is a poet. I am sure he is going to Michigan to get his degree in Women's Studies.
