We had alot of our defense go to the NFL and knew this would be a rebuilding year. Gus's time at Auburn will be remembered fondly in the future I think. We were the only team to consistently beat Bama during their dynasty, we were 7 seconds from a NC in 13, we had the largest margin of victory vs our biggest three opponents (LSU, Georgia, Bama), and of course we had the incredible finishes to games. He ran a clean program and seemed to have the respect of the locker room until the end.

The names being floated right now are absurd (the worst being Art Briles). The main one I've seen is Hugh Freeze, who is pretty much Gus with baggage.

And what is that buy-out?


One would think this year of all years you give a coach a break and see what happens next year. But w/ college football and the rabid boosters, guess not.

Re: College football 2020 offseason

Jim Harbaugh has reached agreement with Michigan and signed a 5-year extension to stay put. Harbaugh will be taking a paycut and buyout package also proportionally reduced.

Not really sure who is coming out ahead on this deal. Harbaugh would have bailed had there been a NFL job opening for him, but apparently none of his preferred destinations panned out? But at least it's a much smaller buyout if Michigan have to shitcan him down the road?

No way Harbaugh was going to fail up to the NFL. Even the most inept NFL team isn't that dumb and unlike universities they are spending their own money. He's lucky to have gotten what he did from Michigan. As for the school I suppose it gives them a viable exit strategy down the road when things inevitably don't improve.

Re: College football 2020 offseason

They have basically agreed to terms, but it's not finalized or signed it yet, from the reports I read. His pay will be basically cut in half, which lowers the salary he is due next year, but he can theoretically make most of it back in incentives. I assume that the amount that he would have to pay back if he takes another job has also been significantly lowered.

https://www.detroitnews.com/story/sp...on/4137499001/

They basically had to extend him if they aren't prepared to fire him, which I've said all along that I don't think the AD has the balls to do. They can't have him go into the season as a lame duck, as that would not be good for anyone. I think the job is basically his until he choses to take another one, unless he continues to have more seasons like this one.

ACC returns to normal 8-conference-game football schedule with Notre Dame Fighting Irish independent again.


Hopefully, everyone can play a regular season without any postponed or calculation of games.

Re: College football 2020 offseason

College football returns this weekend with a single game, followed by lots of games next weekend.

Most people have forgotten (or were never aware) that the FCS opted for spring football. Season runs through April 17, followed by playoffs beginning April 24 ending with a national championship game on May 16. Not sure yet how much will be televised. Hopefully a lot.

Watched McNeese State come back from 14 points down to win a double overtime thriller over Tarleton State. It was Tarleton State's first game as a D-1 (FCS) program after moving up from D-II. (LSU head coach) Ed Orgeron was on hand to watch his son Cody Orgeron play QB and lead the comeback for McNeese State.

Apparently Michigan's solution to the fact that we aren't winning enough rivalry games is to establish a new rivalry with Northwestern.
