LINCOLN – Nebraska’s football coaches hit the recruiting trail Monday to lock in official visits for the next three weeks and follow up with a prospect who just saw NU with his family. Prospects’ Twitter profiles pointed the way to Nebraska’s itineraries. First the hunt for wide receivers: Husker offensive coordinator and receivers coach Troy Walters made a swing through California to visit several propects, including Lancaster Paraclete’s Andre Hunt, Rancho Cucamonga Etiwanda’s Geordon Porter and Calasbasas’ Nikko Hall, who will visit Nebraska on Feb. 2. Hunt will also visit on Feb. 2, and Porter has yet to set an official visit date. All three receivers are consensus three-star prospects according to the 247Sports composite service.

Porter has already taken four of his … [Read more...] about Recruiting: Husker football coaches busy making in-home visits across the country
Jim Harbaugh doesn't always arrive at his conclusion on the spot. Far from a knee-jerk reactionary, Harbaugh comes from the "measure twice, cut once" school. So when he brought up the notion of Michigan's need to "get stronger" multiple times after the Wolverines' season-ending loss to Ohio State, I figured there was more to this than weight training. Physical strength. Mental strength. Talent strength. Harbaugh meant what he said. And a week later, he arrived at his point. "We look at it right now, we're not good enough. Not good enough to win all our games," Harbaugh said Sunday night. "We need to be better. We need to be good enough." Not good enough. An 8-4 record isn't good enough. Good enough, in Harbaugh's world. is winning a championship. This wasn't a championship team.

After seven roller coaster seasons as the head football coach of the UL Ragin’ Cajuns, Mark Hudspeth was fired by the university after a third consecutive losing season.UL athletic director Bryan Maggard informed Hudspeth of the decision around 8 a.m. Sunday, and Hudspeth told the team he had been let go during a mandatory team meeting later Sunday morning.The university subsequently issued a statement saying Hudspeth has been relieved of his duties.At a press conference Sunday afternoon, Maggard cited the team's play this season, dwindling attendance and declining financial support of the program among reasons for the termination."This decision was made after just the lack of progress that was made throughout the season, and inconsistent play," he said, "along with a sense of apathy that has surrounded our program."I felt like this was shown through significant drops in ticket sales and attendance, which created residual decreases in revenue areas such as concessions, … [Read more...] about UL fires head football coach Hudspeth, citing inconsistent play, declining support
After seven roller coaster seasons as the head football coach of the UL Ragin’ Cajuns, Mark Hudspeth was fired by the university after a third consecutive losing season.Hudspeth told the team he had been let go during a mandatory team meeting Sunday morning.The university subsequently issued a statement saying Hudspeth has been relieved of his duties.Hudspeth initially took Cajun Country by storm, bringing the kind excitement Cajun Field hadn’t enjoyed in four decades with four straight nine-win seasons and four consecutive New Orleans Bowl victories.The last three seasons, however, were filled with a steady flow of controversy, scandals and question marks.And now the Cajuns are moving on, as they decided to spend $1.5 million to buy Hudspeth out of a contact that paid him $1.1 million plus benefits and incentives this year.The deal, which was redrawn and extended at a significantly higher pay rate in 2014 and had another year added to it in 2015, had been scheduled to run … [Read more...] about UL fires head football coach Mark Hudspeth
LEXINGTON, Ky. – No team needs added motivation when it takes on its archrival, but there is more on the line than bragging rights in the 2017 edition of the Kentucky-Louisville football game.Here’s a look at what is at stake for Kentucky.1. A chance at historyA win over Louisville would give Kentucky eight regular-season victories for the first time since 1984.Yes, the Wildcats play one more game than they did 33 years ago, but no Kentucky team has been able to accomplish the feat since the schedule permanently moved to 12 games.UK has not even had a chance to win an eighth regular season game since 2009. Only four seasons in that span has Kentucky had at least one opportunity to win its eighth regular season game.There has been much talk this season about how much a down-SEC East should factor in evaluating the Wildcats’ season. Those criticisms will remain valid regardless of the outcome Saturday, but winning eight regular season games would make it far easier to … [Read more...] about What’s at stake for Kentucky football in rivalry game versus Louisville
OXFORD — We've reached the point of the schedule where things get a little more interesting for Ole Miss.Texas A&M and Mississippi State are more difficult foes than the recent three-game stretch of Arkansas, Kentucky and Louisiana.That said, the Rebels, as of Monday afternoon, are a three-point favorite in their matchup with the Aggies, which will take place Saturday night (6 p.m., ESPN2) at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. More: The Ole Miss Exit Survey: The Ragin' Cajuns never had a chance On paper, Texas A&M (6-4, 3-3 SEC) is the better of the two teams, so why is Ole Miss (5-5, 2-4) the favorite?The fact the Rebels are playing at home has something to do with it.Also, opponents have been able to exploit Ole Miss' defense for chunks of yardage all season. Ole Miss ranks 109th in the nation with 160 plays of 10 yards or more allowed. Can the Aggies, who rank 88th of 130 FBS teams with 129 plays of 10 yards or more, … [Read more...] about Why is Ole Miss an early favorite against Texas A&M?
Urban Meyer of Ohio State has supplanted Nick Saban of Alabama as the best big-game coach in college football. His resume speaks for itself. Meyer coached Utah to a perfect record in 2004, won national championships at Florida in 2006 and 2008 and then a third last season with the Buckeyes in the inaugural national football playoff, defeating Oregon, 42-20, in the final at Arlington, Tex. The Buckeyes are 38-3 under Meyer and 24-0 in Big Ten regular-season games in the past three years. Meyer has labeled this season as “The Grind”, but he seems better equipped to defend his title than any other Ohio State coach, including the iconic Woody Hayes and Jim Tressel. Meyer’s Bucks have averaged 42.8 points per game since he arrived in Columbus and have enough talent at every position to keep the ball rolling with their fifth straight top recruiting class in the Big Ten.

Paraphrasing any football coach who traffics in cliches, "Georgia has put its identity on tape."And its identity is better than Tennessee's.If you drafted players from both depth charts, the resulting team would have a strong Georgia accent. I would pick Tennessee punter Trevor Daniel, center Jashon Robertson, freshman offensive guard Trey Smith, wide receiver Marquez Callaway, and maybe even running back John Kelly. But I can't imagine any other Vol starting for the Bulldogs. Adams: Have Vols forgotten about Marquez Callaway? But Saturday's game isn't all about talent, player development or national ranking (Georgia is No. 8 in the coaches poll; Tennessee is listed among "others receiving votes").It's also about history. And it's about a Georgia program that has a long track record of underachieving and losing games it's supposed to win.
