Dooley has done OK as OC at Mizzou, by appearances anyway.  Having Locke might have helped.

Hah.

I think Mizzou is a bit underrated.

According to the B10 board, Mizzou is only ranked because they're an SEC team.

When did the Big Ten Board reach that unanimous consensus?

It is often considered than any 8-4 SEC team who gets ranked is only there because of the SEC halo.

I find it interesting that sportswriter from around the country are so influenced, but some think they are.  Coaches as well.

When I am President, I'm going to issue an executive order banning red football fields.

I would grandfather that one in, it's heinous to be sure, but it's been there a while.
But when replaced, it shall be green, unless it is in Kentucky.

Same.  I don't like it, but at least it's original.  The copycat ones are just awful, and they are popping up increasingly in high school fields.

I'd change it to green, just because it was original and has been that way a couple decades doesn't make it right

Of course it's not right, but as noted, it was original, a kind of a thing, and I rarely see it.  They should hire Les Miles to coach up there.

Idaho is a beautiful state.  It's not well known, but the territory was originally settled by a lady of ill repute (not counting the natives who were there long before of course).  She was the first permanent "white" settler, but had little business.

I do like the alternating light/dark green stripes every 5 yards.

Just realized we've only had 2 days of bowl games, and all 4 mid-major champs who didn't get the NY6 auto-bid have already played.

UAB looked pretty good to me, which is remarkable considering their recent hiatus from football.  That was their fist bowl win - ever.

How long will that coach stay put?

they all did pretty good, too, except the one where 2 were matched up.
what uab and clark have done is kinda amazing. for uab sake i hope he sticks around for a while (looks like he is), but if i'm a big time school looking for a coach, he's on my short list of initial contacts for sure.

Thinking about CUSA, I had totally lost track of FAU.  5-7 and home for the holidays is not exactly what anyone expected this year.  Thought they had a chance to challenge for a NY6 bid.

tons of people had them with an outside shot to upset ou early in season. the lane train quickly derailed on that one.

looking back on it, it's not a bad schedule for a g5 team. @ ou, @ ucf, @ mtsu, @ marshall, @ fiu, @ north texas. all those are pretty good teams, and a couple are great.

maybe next year with a better defense?

Florida Atlantic University head football coach Lane Kiffin has appointed Glenn Spencer as defensive coordinator of the FAU Owls. Spencer most recently held the same position with the Charlotte 49ers.

In one season at Charlotte, Spencer revitalized the defensive unit. The 49ers were ranked 11th in the county with 88.5 rushing yards per game. Additionally, the 49ers ranked third in C-USA and 14th in the FBS in total defense allowing just 306.6 total yards of offense.

Prior to Charlotte, Spencer spent 10 years at Oklahoma State University as defensive coordinator, defensive line coach and linebackers coach.
During his 10 years at OSU, Spencer was the Cowboys' defensive coordinator for five seasons. The Cowboys amassed a 96-34 record over those 10 years and won both the 2011 and 2012 Fiesta Bowl games. OSU made additional trips to New Year's Six bowl games – the Sugar Bowl in 2016 and 2015, as well as the Cotton Bowl in 2014, 2013, 2010 and 2009. The Cowboys enjoyed 10-win seasons in six of Spencer's last seven years and won six of their last eight bowl games.
