I thought once we hired Chip Kelly, he'd be able to turn our fortunes around... but we look worse than ever. Not expecting anything from 2019 for the Bruins.

I vote for Texas to be the most likely team to end up out of the top 10 at the end of the season.
They've got a bit of rebuilding to do, as does OU.

Shame for them as this would've been the year to knock OU off the top of the BigXii, though Hurts as a running QB does help lessen the impact of replacing almost the entire OL.

Was a hair away from pulling the trigger on a trip there somewhat recently, but wasn’t sure it’d be worth it. Didn’t miss much other than a Baker Mayfield 4th quarter comeback that went into OT.

Oh well...

A UT/UF game here would be nuts.
Looks amazing.

One of the "watch live" games on my bucket list.
On mine too. If Clemson plays them here I’m gonna have to pull the trigger and come.

Right now I gotta settle for my team playing some 7 on 7 in the stadium.

The scale of some of these college stadiums is just amazing. For all intents and purposes it’s effectively a “pro” sports league in terms of scale and support and fandom. Great pictures.

Man I wish I had enough time to take pics of all of the indoor practice facility.



Full sized field, 2 weight rooms, 2 restaurants, a swimming pool, 2 Athletic training offices, a barber shop...

“You know, I had the opportunity to play in the Big House when I was in Connecticut coaching there, and when they had just finished the expansion [to] 113,000,” Edsall said on 106.7 The Fan. “Yeah, it’s big, but it’s not loud. I mean, that’s one thing with Michigan, it’s not a loud crowd. And I think the biggest thing with that situation, you go in there and they understand that, ‘Hey, the field is the same size here at Byrd as it is there.’

I think you clocked in one time as the 10th loudest decibel level recorded at a college game. On the average Saturday though, The Big House, like many college stadiums up north, just doesn’t stack up to the atmosphere you get in the Southeast and Texas/Oklahoma.

It's bullshit. How are you not prepared or motivated for a National Championship game?

Has anyone at Clemson responded to it?
Mostly laughing at Bama and pointing out that Georgia didn’t beat them by 4 TDs after they said Georgia was the toughest team they played all year.
