Granted he has a lot of youngsters on the team, but when are the excuses going to stop.

He did not have youngsters last year in those positions.

Heck, other teams start freshmen and win.

And that's not including the off field behavior.
And Nebraska really put the screws to South Dakota State.

We'll see how long before they lose by 30 points again.

Will it be Northwestern or Michigan?

The school showed no class the way they handled this meeting him at the airport.

They should have asked him to come in and done it as his office.

Kiffin can come across as arrogant, but he did not deserve to go out like this.

Northwestern campus is absolutely buzzing with excitement for the Ohio State game. A bunch of my friends were up at 3:30 AM to make to the pit behind the ESPN Gameday desk. I don't even really care about football, but the excitement is palpable. I can feel it in the air and it is infectious.

I'm not going to the game -- I planned to, but then I scored some theatre tickets that take serious precedence -- but I'm hoping for the very best for my senior homecoming!

Did Northwestern fans purchase any tickets to the game? The Ohio State fans seem more prevalent and are much louder, at least on television.

The campus was crawling with people, and it seemed like a ton of people were going. I know the student section was beyond packed. But a lot of OSU fans turned up, so it's possible we were overwhelmed.

I got out of a concert and sprinted barefoot to my apartment four blocks away, changed clothes, and biked furiously up the two miles up to the field. I realized I had no idea which gate to go in (I, uh, haven't gotten around to a game yet) but found a nice older woman sitting on a couch in some grass nearby, with a big screen TV. It was strange, but I took the chance to watch the last two minutes. Womp, womp. Everyone's still pleased with the game and very proud of how our 'Cats performed.

My Bucks had their hands full with Northwestern. They always do. This game reminded me of the Perdue game from '09 where I believe we had 5 turnovers under Terrelle Pryor and won in OT. So we keep the longest winning streak alive. Boy, I can't wait to go to the Shoe for the Michigan game. Buckeye born, buckeye bred as they say around here. We all bleed scarlet and gray. Although the somewhat unexpected success by the Browns has the furor around them as high as I've ever seen it.

Clemson, FSU are real BCS contenders

A year ago Saturday, Florida State choked away a second-half lead at North Carolina State, and before the season’s halfway mark, it signaled another year of embarrassment that the ACC would not have a title contender.

FSU's QB is legit. The guy is a monster.

USC: Impersonators calling coaches

Apparently even people who don't work for USC are trying to hire the Trojans' next football coach.

Looking at Florida State, it's kind of scary that this was supposed to be a rebuild year. I haven't seen a Seminole team look this good in years.

They are very good. A worthy opponent for my 'Bama this year in the championship game. Roll Tide!
