I searched but didn't see this posted. Wall Street Journal has an article about current coaches' records vs. AP Top 25.
Surprisingly good records vs. top 25:
Shaw 14-4 (though he did inherit a really good program from Harbaugh)
Surprisingly bad records vs. top 25:
| O-T Lounge|| Anyone have an artificial turf lawn? - bayoujd on 2/8/14 at 4:34 pm|
I'm thinking of doing this in the backyard especially since kids and dogs track in so much dead grass, dirt, mud etc during the winter. Has anyone done it? What product did you use? Are you satisfied?...

You can get a ticket to the title game for as cheap as $275 on StubHub. That is below face value.
As a point of reference, the worst seats in the house for last year's title game were going for $1,000. Same for the LSU-Bama game the year before....

I expected him to be on the firing block given the turmoil with the 2 OL during the season, and then falling apart the last few weeks and missing the playoffs. Has anybody read anything on what the Dolphins plan to do?...

Ouch, that's not too impressive since speed was supposed to be his forte.
Maybe he will slide to the middle of round 1.
A lot of times have been slower than expected - Ogletree ran a 4.7 at the combine, and Minter and Te'o ran 4.8's.

Reagan Mauia, an Arizona Cardinals fullback, said he believes Kekua existed because he met her in person when he and other Polynesian teammates and Pittsburgh Steelers star Troy Polamalu went to do charity work in American Samoa in June 2011.
"This was before her and Manti," Mauia said We...
| More Sports Board|| Is Manziel really deserving of the Heisman? - bayoujd on 11/25/12 at 7:41 pm|
I don't get it. At all. A&M played 3 ranked teams - Alabama, LSU, and Florida.
In those 3 games:
Record: 1-2 (not good for a Heisman frontrunner)
That's very poor overall in the biggest moments.
His team finished 3rd in his division, and 6th in the conference.

| Food and Drink Board|| What is the best food thermometer - bayoujd on 3/17/12 at 10:44 pm|
for purposes of measuring temperature of the food in a smoker? Should I go ahead and get a remote thermometer so I don't have to lift the lid while it's cooking? Amateur questions, I know, but I'd like to get going on the right foot!

Does anyone have any good suggestions? I'm going to get it going this weekend with the start of LSU baseball.

Blown out of the water by Wisconsin and Michigan. And lost at home to a 5-5 Northwestern team. Yet still ranked 22nd?
That just seems crazy to me.
