nope, but that's probably exactly what the Trojans need to dominate

Makes good sense from a purely football stand point, but c'mon. A rock star coach with a Conservative viewpoint who already has the fembots up his arse coaching at a place where sports routinely take a backseat to left wing politics? The man would have to be a glutton for punishment, which would also be out of character. 

Now I don't think that the TV gig will last either. Dude probably hasn't flown coach in over a decade. Can't really see him slogging through all the delays, overbooking and cancellations just to sit next to some schmuck that wants to talk Buckeye FB the entire flight.

Nobody knows anything about Baldwin, so who knows, he may be unsung hero!  He was recruited by Day, supposedly has an arm, and has time to set in, and won't be forced to learn a completely new offense with Meyer's departure.  I hope he pans out, but don't want to see a split QB rotation by any means.
I am best -guessing, based on film and quotes, that Baldwin is being way underestimated here.  Go watch his tape.  Tell me who he throws like?
Also, maybe way off here, but I will be absolutely stunned if Meyer decides to ever coach again.

Cardale Jones was also a "bust" until he had one of the greatest runs in CFB history.

Kind of agree but if USC or ND came knocking I could see him thinking "I could be the only coach to win an NC at 3 different Schools".I'd take the easy money and head to the booth

I personally did not car for Meyer in the booth.  No doubt he has the knowledge, but his delivery was rather toneless.

I thought Mike Riley & Dan Mullen were both good in the Coaches booth for the Ohio St vs Oregon NC game.Mullen calling out what he thought Urbz would do,and Riley calling out what the Ducks would do.Both of them being familiar with their subjects and they were spot on the calls

ND is very much his kind of jam.

I saw an early line had Michigan a 6.5 favorite in The Game.

I posted the same in the Michigan thread. Michigan is favored in every game this year. I can't tell you how unusual that is in the 21st century. It honestly may be the first time since 2000, though I may be misremembering the offseasons before 2001, 2003, 2004, and 2006. And for Michigan to not only be favored but favored by 6.5 is obviously rarer than rare.
I will say, though, that even though we're amidst an OSU golden period, with the end of the Meyer era, I'm not surprised for Vegas to be maximally uncertain or of a new mind. But that's not the same as expecting the spread to swing this far the other way.

The Dawgs are favored in every game, and that has been the norm of late (regular season), but of course they don't win every game.

Set the line where it makes money for the house.
