This just confirms that the committee says that conference championships matter and that the Big 12 needs to get back to 12 teams and have a championship game. Cincinnati, BYU, Colorado St and Memphis could be the real winners today....

| Coaching Changes|| Would Pat Fitzgerald Ever Leave Northwestern? - Buckeye Backer on 12/4/14 at 9:04 am|
First, let me say that i hate to think about Fitzgerald ever leaving NW, what he has done there is nothing short of amazing. Having said that, it seems like NW has hit a wall. Is Fitzgerald burnt out? It has to take a TON of enthusiasm and effort just to make NW competitive. It makes you wonder ...

Hypothetically, lets assume that Melvin Gordon runs for over 250 yards (very possible) and Wisconsin beats Ohio State in the range of 35-14. Could Urban finally be ready to move on from Luke Fickell as D Coordinator? If that were to happen, does Meyer go after Pelini? Pelini is from Ohio and play...

The drought contiues in what i consider to be an absolutely ridiculous statistic. John Cooper never won it, Jim Tressel never won it...even the year Ohio State went 14-0 and won the national championship, and now Urban Meyer cant win it either. What else do they want from an Ohio State coach? Ohi...

Read the article on ESPN talking about how there could be 4-5 coaches that get fired this year in the B1G. I say its about time. This current group of coaches in B1G is the worst it has ever been. Even the coaches who are doing good, im not that high on. Who gets the axe at the end of the season...

In year 1 of the College Football Playoffs, the champion of the Big 12 looks like it could possibly be left out due to not having a conference championship game. I know expansion has been talked about add nausea, but it still begs the question, if a 1 loss Big 12 Champion gets left out because of no...

Lets revisit this discussion. Who do you got winning the AL? Kluber, Fernandez or somebody else? I know Chris Sale had a great season, but I think he missed too much time to be in consideration when comparing him to these two:
Corey Kluber (18-9) 2.44 ERA, 269 SO, 1.08 WHIP

During last night's speech, all i kept hearing was this "coalition" that we are trying to build to help us fight ISIS.

#20 BYU has looked impressive in their first two wins of the season, both on the road. They have a physicality to them that is nasty. Looking at their schedule, they could easily run the table. What would their chacnes be at the 4 team playoff? Also, why has the Big 12 not added BYU yet? Seems ...

This kid was the #1 ranked duel-threat QB. Urban Meyer hand selected this kid. Here are his SR/JR year highlight videos of him in case anybody needs a look. This kid is going to be good. The coaches are saying that at this point in his carreer, he is way ahead of where Braxton was. Now he just n...
