    Lovie Smith receives 2-year contract extension through 2023

    I'm stunned that there are actually people that thought it was even a possibility we would fire Smith after his second true year. When his oldest guys are just sophomores ...

    Yep. One reason the 2007 team was so good was because guys like J Leman, Norwell, Mitchell and Harrison had gotten their brains beat in for 3 straight years. All that playing time and experience created some real good seniors.

    Yes. This was always going to be a 10 win team max. Anyone paying any attention for the last year should not be surprised. The reaction on here is crazy. Did people really think we were going to roll through this tough a schedule with 8 new players and no frontcourt? I'm actually...

    Basically the same except his teams won 14 games his last two years and Turner's won 4. And we still have yet to field a team as good as the team the year Zook got fired.

    I should hope so. We only have 13 scholarship slots open currently. That would be a REALLY small class. *edit* With Williams, Dorsey, Thomas and Unije leaving mid-season, I think we have 17 open now.

    If we are out of bowl game contention (I'm not sure whether we are officially or not), we should play Rivers.

    Would have been interesting to see if Tre Watson, Ke'Shawn Vaughn, Patrick Nelson, Desmond Cain, Dominic Thieman, Tito Odenigbo would have made a difference? In a hypothetical world, we certainly would have seen those guys playing a lot of minutes this year considering how all the injuries...

    Brick Haley wouldn't surprise me. But you'd have to come up with some serious money to pay him. Wouldn't rule out either Hoke brother either.

    Reggie Corbin named B1G Co-Offensive Player of the Week

    Corbin has already graduated and is working on an advanced degree. Would be really surprised if he has any intention of coming back for his senior year -- even if the injury keeps him out.

    Our offensive is pretty amazing considering the wide receivers don't have any hands. We might score 70 points a game if we had WRs who could catch.

    If you have coached teams in the National Championship Game (Saban, Meyer, Swinney, Fisher, Malzahn, Smart) or the Super Bowl (Harbaugh, Smith), seems like you have every right to be on that list.
