    Alabama announced that Saban might never stop coaching on Monday. Three days later the College Football Playoff cartel decided it was time to start discussions about expanding their exclusive party from four to 12 teams.

    Just watched the 2011 BCS CG again. Sweet.

    I just watched the replay of 2011 BCS CG with Alabama vs LSU in the Super Dome. 21-0 and i had forgotten just how much I loved seeing the cocky Honey Badger and his buds sitting on the bench during the 4th quarter with their little sad faces. Ah. How satisfying

    New "1 mile" rule could boost some coaches relationships with recruits

    Before picking the location of his home in Columbia, Missouri, Drinkwitz inquired about a little-known NCAA rule that allows a recruiting advantage for coaches who live within a mile of campus.

    Forget recruiting, rerecruiting and roster management are keeping college football coaches up at night

    "My whole argument is I can take the [high school] kid down the street that no one wants and no one offers who, after three years, you develop him into a good player, and he can leave," Spavital said. "Or you can [go to the portal]." The unprecedented freedom players are experiencing has forced...

    Will Transfer Portal change recruiting strategy of mid pack schools?

    I have been trying to figure out how the newest Transfer portal rules will affect recruiting in the middle of the pack teams. It seems to me Alabama, Ohio State, LSU, Georgia, Texas A&M, Clemson and the teams who usually land top ten classes will continue to load up with talent and then lose...

    It was National Signing Day and Saban was about to discuss a group of recruits that would prove to be among the greatest of all time — part of two national titles teams (and a 51-4 record) the past four seasons. NFL draft is a recruiting flex for Nick Saban and Alabama's absurd talent wealth...

    Link: It's hard to argue that the CFP has been better than the BCS

    This was discussed on radio today. My feeling is when we go to eight teams we will double the number of blowout games for people to whine and carp about. Never-the-less we ARE GOING to have eight teams soon. It's time to consider contracting the College Football Playoff back to just two...

    Bring back the fun and excitement

    I hope I don’t offend anyone but I must vent because I am fed up. How many more National Championships must we win until enough is enough? Twenty three? Thirty? I am tired of feeling entitled and knowing we are getting the #1 recruiting class each and every year. Sick and tied of smoking so...

    Fired coaches (understandably) seem to have a chip on their shoulder.

    It's one thing to be canned and quite another to be put out to pasture by your alma mater Amid the subtext of Heupel's hiring at Tennessee five weeks ago was his new gig being some sort of revenge tour. Sark and former OC Tony Franklin are covered too. Once-fired coaches like Josh Heupel...

    News Article: HC cycle revolved around the SEC — past, present and perhaps future.

    BYU has an ambitious 2021 schedule.

    Seven Power 5 teams including USC & Utah.. Not a BYU fan but they evidently want to show they belong in the PAC or Big 12. They had five Power 5 teams last season until Covid canceled them.

    Scheduling in the future hopefully may not be the same.

    Three conventional wisdom "truths" have been laid to rest. 1. Schedules must be made years in advance. Many replacement games were decided on Wednesday’s and even made it on T.V. on Saturday. 2. Can’t make the playoff with a 9 game conference schedule. Not only made it but went undefeated...
