Nice to see Mike poke his head in! Oregon should be an interesting team this year. Hope Herbert can stay healthy. Glad Levitt said as DC. Everyone is just giving Washington that division, and they deserve to be the favorite, the only weakness they have is a proven threat at WR (like they have in 2016). Stanford's model of playing to their defense and keeping it simple on O may be changing...the D is weaker and the O may be their best in years. Oregon? Coaching change (again) and Herbert's health would be the questions. Ducks should be a team to watch. And Cal is up and coming. I am down on Washington State this year, they may struggle to make a bowl. Think they may drop the game at Wyoming in the opener.

I'll look into the yahoo pick'em for this year.

I'd like to think this whole Urban Meyer thing isn't true. Not for him, but for the ex coach's wife. This is a very sad story.

If so, I think the only thing OSU can do is part ways with Urban.

Florida hired an awesome coach. Look out for the Gators especially in 2020.

Coach Urban Meyer and Ohio State have a mess on their hands. The cover up gets you eventually.

I don't know, they'll figure it out what is right for their program based on the facts surrounding all of it.

Ohio State's win total has been taken off the board at a few online places, not sure about Vegas.

Certainly a distraction for the team. And add in that Ryan Day has been named acting head coach, with no head coaching experience, while their are two former HCs on the staff in Kevin Wilson and Greg Schiano - that could create some resentment within the ranks. Ofcourse Kevin Wilson has his own baggage and we know about the Schiano controversy.

Just found out UCLA's practices are closed to the public. Well it saves me a trip out to Westwood; more time to spend on the Whipping Post!

GO BRUINS!

Hey Strat I am in your neck of the woods for a family vacation from November 9 to 19. If you are venturing to USC UCLA I'd love to tag along or even drop in to say hi at your tailgate. And of course rid you of any food going to waste.

Long way away, just planting the seed.

Cheers

Going to go to one or both of Northwestern's first two home games, Duke and Akron.

Tickets for Akron can be had for $2 and Duke for a whopping $3.

Can tickets be had for cheap for a Big Ten home game?

Northwestern picked up Clemson transfer 5* Hunter Johnson. He's a real good QB.

Cool leaf! This year's showdown is at the Coliseum. Sorry but I don't go to games there anymore; too much of a hassle.

Good luck to the Ducks this season. I think the Bruins play at Eugene. I don't think they've won there since 2004. Should be a heck of a game especially with CCK returning.

Just saw a snippet on ESPN about The Pac Ten. UCLA only has a 1% chance of winning the conference. Wow. How the mighty have fallen.

I'm surprised they even have a 1% chance considering there isn't a Pac Ten conference.

Well, there's still a Big Ten with 14 teams.

$2 OR $3 too rich for your blood?

If you've never been to a Northwestern game, plan a trip to Chicago. Evanston is just a short train ride away. Campus is a short walk from the train station. The stadium is really cool. Much smaller than Michigan or Michigan State. I think even MAC schools like Western or Central Michigan.

Big 12 thoughts...

OU - Who replaces Baker Mayfield? Whoever does has the luxury of having a fine offensive line. About that defense, tho...

Iowa State - Yeah, I said Iowa State. Sleeper. Maybe. Sorta. Probably not. But still...

West Virginia - Been trying to figure this team out for a few years now. Strong starts. Inexplicable fades.

K-State - See West Virginia. When does the Snyder Era end?

TCU - Pieces are in place. Now what?

Texas - Maybe this is the season they realize that they aren't entitled to anything just because they are Texas. Nah, won't happen.

Maybe they'll regret letting Mack Brown go as they should. My opinion of course.

UCLA practices closed? Can't you just get a hotel room overlooking the field and see everything there?

Duke @ Northwestern should be good game! I think Hunter Johnson has to sit out a year on the transfer, but that is an amazing land for NW, believe I heard that is their first ever 5* kid.

Big Xll football should be really great this year. OU is at the top, deservedly so even without Baker they have alot on O to do damage with, like Bhawk says, it is always the D that you worry about. But otherwise try picking who finishes 2nd or even last in the Big Xll. KU should be last, but they could also win maybe as many as 4 games this year? I see the league being super competitive and should produce good games weekly. Teams seem really even this year outside of OU. Texas might be ready to turn a corner and WVU has big expectations. But Baylor will be better, ISU will still be solid, OK St will drop off, but will still be decent, seems a little easy to overlook TCU which is never good. K St is typically tough. They are playing D at TTech for a change.

Here is something I saw on Kansas State won 5 games last year where their opponent outgained them in total yards. Vs Baylor -31, Vs Kansas -142, Vs TTech -119, Vs Ok St -89, Vs ISU -115. Some of those are huge yardage discrepancies to still win a game while being outgained like that. But that is kind of KSt's MO, turnovers, special teams, smoke and mirrors, they make a living out of winning games like that almost annually. Still just to realize that of their 6 wins vs IA/FBS/P5 teams last year, they only outgained 1 of the 6 teams they beat...which was UCLA without Rosen.

Speaking of Northwestern, They have a really good home schedule; Michigan, Nebraska, Wisconsin and Notre Dame out of their seven games. You can buy single game tickets to any of them except for Michigan & Notre Dame. You can only get those if you buy season tickets. Pretty good way to shake money out of people.

Can't say that I blame them. There will be more fans there of both other teams than there will be for Northwestern.

I want to visit all the Big Ten stadiums but would prefer to see a Big Ten matchup.

Gotcha. The only cheap Northwestern Big Ten game is the last game of the season against Illinois, November 24th. Thanksgiving weekend though. That's rivalry weekend across the country and that's as close as those two have to having a rival since they are in the same state I guess.

You can get in for seven bucks.
