    And why is it that people were up in arms over Harbaugh's contract, again? One that DIDN'T mean he was the top paid coach.....

    I never understood that.

    But letting Pedo State point out how important entertainment like football is, relative to everything else... yea....

    That's cool, but I am shocked that even one of those kids has heard of MC Hammer.

    I guess holding the Stanford/Rice game tomorrow in Sydney turned out to be a shockingly good amount of foresight.

    So, who does everyone have for their playoff teams? What conference gets shutout? Does any conference get more than 1 team? Ohio State looked rough in the opening half last night against Indiana...are they still going to run roughshod over the B1G? More importantly, does Clemson get its 7th straight 10+ win season?

    My playoff: Southern Cal, the Criminoles, Alabama, and Ohio State. I'll take Southern Cal over Ohio State for the National Title.

    And yes, Clemson gets 10+ wins...although it will be close and they may need to win their bowl game to do so.

    FSU, Washington, Ohio State, Oklahoma. 2 loss SEC Champ Alabama is left out. OSU over FSU in the title game.

    17 pts vs Buffalo doesn't give me a lot of confidence for this season. But a win is a win.

    Well, the one positive of this result would be the instant call for increasing the number of playoff teams to at least 8, with an auto-bid for each Power 5 conference champion.

    New coach, new system, unproven OL and 2 new QBs. Don't let the preseason get you too high or too low. They're not going to push for any titles, but they have a shot at .500 in the BT which would have been their ceiling even if Claeys had stayed on.

    My playoff:

    Bama, Ohio State, Clemson, and Stanford.

    Alabama National Title winner.

    Interested to see Iowa tomorrow. Solid on both lines of scrimmage, unknown at QB, young talent at WR and DB. 8-4 is my prediction.

    Excited to be back at Kinnick Stadium tomorrow.

    I figured Wisconsin would turn this around, but I figured it would take more than 6 minutes of game time.

    Lose a dozen guys to the NFL draft including almost the entire defense and it's "the year"?

    They don't recruit like Alabama or Ohio State, so I heavily doubt that
