[quote]The SEC championship in years past has not featured the best two teams[/quote]
sometimes that is probably true but it completely misses the point.
the point of a championship game for a 12 or 14 team league is to have a system:
1) with clear rules
2) that results in a single confere...

As an outsider looking in I don't think Nebraska is as likely to rise up to the level of a tOSU, USC, FSU, Miami, OU type program again. They are one of the greatest programs in college football history but they have no home grown recruiting grounds, no longer play Texas teams multiple times a year...

that's the choice he's seemingly made, a lot of teams were probably interested in him for positions other than QB coming out of college but he always talked about wanting to play the QB position at the NFL level...

but as a QB with the silliness that followed him I wouldn't want him on my team. If he were a TE/HB or FB he could be a role player with some value but th...

maybe a USF given their location - but they would need an invite from the Big 12 to get going I think.
I think UCLA is too much a basketball school and their stadium atmosphere isn't going to reach what you might expect out of a more football mad culture...

only if they're on the field at the same time
in all seriousness I think the team will be better if they pick a single starter and stick with him. it just gives you clarity and your team a more defined personality to devel...

even without the injury issue I'd go Brandon Marshall. he's just more productive. he has seven seasons he can point to where he crossed 1k yards receiving and some of those were on pretty bad teams. at 30 years old he's not over the hill yet (although it approaches).
1) coming of...
