Sad. My favorite coach in college football, and hard for the people close to him when it's sudden like this.

For those who subscribe to the Athletic, they did a hilarious feature a couple years ago with comments from a bunch of his QBs from WSU and it's absolutely freaking gold. Saw it again on the homepage today, but if it's no longer there strongly recommend searching for it. RIP.

College football is poorer without him. And so is everything else.

Rest in peace Mike Leach, and thank you for all you did.

RIP. A fun character to have in college football and I wish he had been given a shot at a bigger school at some point. His offense revolutionized college football.

Mississippi State announced they have hired their DC, Zach Arnett to be the new head coach. People on Twitter are upset this was so soon after Leach passed. I don't think it disrespectful in any way because he was already on staff. If they announced an outside hire the next day, or even started interviewing coaches it would like WTF? But if you knew he was the guy, go ahead and make it official since you have a game coming up.

Well, North Dakota State, fighting through big injuries, getting trounced in the first quarter, going down 16 early, managed to fight back against a very tough Incarnate Word team that seemed to have all the answers. They pulled out a 35-32 win in the Fargodome to seal their 10th trip to Frisco, Texas in the last 12 years to the FCS Championship game. The fanbase is tired of so much winning. We'll play either Montana State or South Dakota State. SDSU already has a big win against us this year. So we're not an unbeatable juggernaut this year, but we were the #3 overall seed in the tournament. Crazy to think they're heading back yet again. Just crazy. It's not like we haven't had gobs of players transfer out either. It's been a revolving door as these guys have gotten national attention.

UCF Travis Williams is the Hog’s new DC.

Don’t know much about him but the Hog forum is underwhelmed. #40 defense this year so that’s a theoretical upgrade from Odom

Arkansas kid coming home!

Our QB2 left for the portal. He had some opportunities to play this season with QB Jefferson hurt but he really didn't perform well. Hope it works out because we really need a competent backup.

What Criswell Brings to Hogs Needed More Than Ever with Singleton Coming
Quote:
Jacolby Criswell is coming home.

Less than a week after entering the transfer portal, the former North Carolina quarterback and Morrilton native announced his commitment to Arkansas football while on an official visit Saturday evening.

A former four-star recruit, Criswell immediately bolsters a quarterback room that severely lacks depth behind standout starter KJ Jefferson. He has three years of eligibility remaining.

Haynes King reportedly xferring to .. Georgia Tech.

He's a prototypical GT quarterback in recent years: hovers around 50% completion rate, as likely to throw a pick as a TD.

Given how he looked surrounded by 5* talent, he might be spectacularly bad (until he gets hurt) surrounded by what amounts to a so-so high school roster.

I think its a good fit for him. Getting away from Jimbo will help his confidence. You could literally see him tightening up when he dropped back to pass as the game went on. He's got a live arm although he does tend to force the issue too many times. If he can make smarter decisions, he'll carve up ACC defenses.

It is crazy how quiet it is for a Early Signing Day. Doesn't seem as big as it normally is. Maybe it is the holidays drowning it out. It sounds like Oregon is making some big splashes. With the NIL as it is, the Ducks might be on the cusps of a big breakout.

Notre Dame finished a bit disappointingly for what is still a really good class for us, but at least we saw the little late bonus of seeing Bowen flip on Oregon the next day.

For all the handwringing about NIL it is funny how normal the rankings are. Good teams have bigger budgets and more supporters, and the dollar amounts may have changed but the distribution of it has not.

I guess it's been decided who's to blame for the tunnel incident?

Quote:
Michigan States Khary Crump agreed to plead guilty to misdemeanor counts of assault/battery and disorderly conduct person-jostling as part of a plea deal following his role in the Michigan Stadium tunnel incident in October
Quote:
Six other Michigan State players are facing charges due to the incident, in which Green and JaDen McBurrows were beaten by MSU players as they walked to the locker room after a 29-7 Michigan victory over the Spartans.
Quote:
All seven players, plus one more who was not charged, were suspended by Michigan State for the last four games of the 2022 season. Crump is the only one who faced further punishment from the Big Ten.

FSU HS recruiting has been decent under Norvell - 15-20 rankings or so - but our transfer portal recruiting has been amazing.

Crump was the one who used his helmet as a weapon, so the charges were more serious. The others were suspended for several games, and that was the end of it.

I thought this was an interesting piece. It is from the perspective of an Ann Arbor-based journalist and life-long Michigan fan, so keep that in mind. But he's someone who is very much respected in the community. I used to work with him, and he was, then, the quiet, do-your-job-well, long-hours type.

Justice Delayed — For All Involved | John U. Bacon

I think the blame starts with the Michigan State coach. This has always been a weird rivalry. For Michigan State, the Michigan game is the most important game, and Michigan is 72-38-5. For Michigan, it's a secondary rivalry - Ohio State ends the season and it's a much more competitive rivalry (Michigan is 60-52-6, though that has gotten a lot closer in the last 20 years).

No way to do it immediately, but I think the best thing for everyone would be to have Michigan and Michigan State in different pods when the conference expands to 16 teams - a few years off would do a lot of good.

It shouldn't have to be that way. Michigan and Michigan State are a little over an hour apart. The fans - so many families have grads from both universities. It's a friendly rivalry in the stands. People tailgate together. In my own case, my wife received her master's and doctorate from MSU - that doesn't create any tension, and she enjoys sports and roots for MSU.

The Ohio State rivalry is a little tougher for the fans, but easier on the players - it's the big rivalry game for both, and they respect each other. Having moved to Ohio, it's a little weird. My next-door neighbor, who almost certainly doesn't know where I grew up, has an American flag on a pole in his front yard. Below it this week are two large banners - Ohio State is on the bottom, TCU above it. It's weird being in a place where fans want their rival to lose even more than they want their team to win. I thought about getting a big Michigan flag for the holder above our front door, but I would worry about vandals - no sense picking a fight in what's very much OSU country.

Disagree strongly, Michigan & Michigan State should play every year, and I get what you're saying (it makes me laugh when BC fans say ND is their biggest rival) but you don't get to claim you're above playing "Little Brother" when they're 10-5 vs you in the last 15 games.

Not sure if the Big Ten will go to the 4 4 team pods and if they'll keep a championship game, but I assume Michigan, Ohio State & USC all headline their own pods if so... does Penn State get the 4th? Have to have one guaranteed non-pod yearly game in that case too.

Hogs are favored over the Jayhawks tomorrow. Not making excuses (well, yes I am) but the Hogs got hit pretty hard by the portal & draft/combine prep. We'll be missing some key players.

We'll have our QB1 and RB1. But will be without our WR1 and some standout defensive starters like Bumper Pool (and others).

Coastal Carolina loses its bowl game to East Carolina 53-29. The Grayson McCall era ends in a bizarre fashion. He ran in for a TD in the first half, running over tacklers as he did so. That caused him to flip over them in a somersault. He did not appear injured or hit his head, but that was it for him with an upper body injury,

Kansas had a TE wide open and for some reason the dude apparently tried to hit a guy in the back of the end zone and threw it away.

Just following online, but it's a good thing they resolved it then. I think the fifth overtime is coeds tossing footballs underhand into those giant Dr. Pepper cans.

Nothing will top the Illinois-Penn State game last year that went 9 OTs and featured 4 FGs in the 1st 2 OTs and then nothing until the 8th OT when they both finally converted the conversions, and then Illinois got one in the 9th OT to win. Hard to play 9 OTs and only score a combined 18 points.

I still remember watching the Arkansas beat Eli Manning's Ole Miss in 7OT.

I do like this format better requiring 2pt conversion after the 2nd OT.

Quote:
The 2001 Arkansas vs. Ole Miss football game was a college football game played on November 3, 2001, between the University of Arkansas Razorbacks and the University of Mississippi Rebels; it broke a then–NCAA record for the longest football game ever played. The game included seven overtime periods, one of five games to ever do so.[1]
