ESPN Blog Position Group Rankings (all positions now included)

ESPN's PAC 12 blog has been ranking the position groups of each PAC 12 school. I don't know that much about the other teams in our league, so these posts have been invaluable to me. They're...

Next Year's Team

So, here are my projected starters for next year's team at every position, plus their stats for the year (minus the bowl game, obviously), and with some committed recruits plugged in. Thoughts?

MWC Connection

I loved MWC Connection when we were in the MWC.  I still head over there a couple of times a month to see what they're talking about, for nostalgia's sake.  I know Jeremy Mauss (the head blogger)...

Pac 12 early NFL losses

I thought I'd do a list of all PAC 12 players possibly or likely leaving early for the draft.  Let me know if you're  a fan of one of these teams and I missed someone:

So, I've been thinking that this year's TCU team looks weaker than last year's.

In order to validate that, I pulled the NCAA stats for 2010 TCU through week 9 and the stats for 2009 TCU through week 9.  Here they are.  2009 raw number first, followed by national ranking in...

Week 10's important games

So last week went just about as well as we could have hoped (except the Notre Dame loss, stupid domers).  Oregon or Auburn could have lost, but other than that, good week.  Ohio State is off this...

Week 9's important games

I had a personal tragedy and haven't really been posting, but I'm trying to get back into my regular life, including stuff like this.  Thanks to Gambit for picking up the slack in my absence.  As...

Week SIX's important games

Now that we're in the top 10, I'm going to narrow the focus of these posts to the top 15 plus Pitt and Notre Dame.  Again, most likely upsets/changes are in bold.  #6 OU and #15 Iowa are on a bye. ...

WAC targets Texas State and UT San Antonio?! Really, WAC? THAT’S your next move? What’s the conference logo going to be, a cupcake? Despite a lawsuit and lots of begging, the WAC is going to lose Boise State, Fresno State, and Nevada as it rockets toward total and complete irrelevance, and it won’t be long before Louisiana Tech jumps off the sinking ship. There aren’t a whole bunch of tricks that commissioner Karl Benson can come up with, outside of trying to expand further east and try to snag a few Sun Belt programs, but that would make travel a logistical nightmare. Geography and perception are battles Benson won’t be able to win, but the league has to try to do something to stay alive. UT San Antonio isn’t an FCS member yet and is looking to make the move up to the FBS level in 2014, while Texas State has been a decent lower level team and it’s looking to get bigger. Both schools get to make their pitch to the WAC, and considering beggars can’t be choosers, the WAC could quickly add these two to the mix. Yippee.

Next year's Notre Dame game.

Just wanted to point out that I was right about Notre Dame.  With Weiss leaving Tate and Clausen are gone to the NFL.  Plus they'll be breaking in 4 new offensive linemen.  Should be a good game...

What is the injury situation?  I heard about Reynolds today.  I hope he's better soon, because I'd like to see you have some success OOC and he's an important part of that.  I've also heard that...

Oregon's 2009 team.

So, I mentioned in one of Jazzy's posts below that I don't think Oregon will be as tough as everyone else.  I am much more worried about Air Force, TCU and BYU (not necessarily in that order).  In...

Use of the "Jerry Rice" formation at Utah.

When Jerry Rice was at MVSC his coach would line him up solo on one side of the field and would line up 4 receivers on the other side, who would all run crossing routes. If the opponent double- or...
