    Money in college football. Who are the best funded programs? --

    https://www.yahoo.com/sports/news/oh...015109001.html

    Here's the entire top 10:
    1. Ohio State, $1.51 billion
    2. Texas, $1.24 billion
    3. Oklahoma, $1 billion
    4. Alabama, $930,000
    5. LSU, $911,927
    6. Michigan, $892,951
    7. Notre Dame, $856,938
    8. Georgia, $822,310
    9. Tennessee, $745,640
    10. Auburn, $724,191

    For comparison, a Forbes report this week valued the average NFL franchise at $2.5 billion, with the Cowboys the most valuable at $4.8 billion.

    Bears couldn't keep up the pace. Impressive 3 quarters, though. Their new coach has clearly got them headed in the right direction.

    Same same for my Duckies. I think after losing to ASU, we can put to rest the overly caffeinated and overly optimistic thought that the new staff at Oregon was pulling off a Miracle Turnaround from their dismal season prior. What's clear is that are talented... and very young. 111'teen penalties for one million & 13 yards is one indicator of youth. Coming out of the locker room tentatively for both halves is another. I am confident, though, that they'll continue to improve thru the season. Might even get to a decent bowl game. Then next year... they should be humming along nicely.

    Well, I don't know about all of the other stuff that went on that your team had trouble with through the spring and summer, but Willie Taggart is a proven winner as a coach so there is no reason he shouldn't succeed.

    My Ducks are getting creamed by #11 Washington State. Not surprising, after their star qb went out with a broken collarbone last week, and then the backup went out too. They started the third string, true freshman, qb tonight... and he simply wasn't read for prime time. The running game was solid, but being one-dimensional is never a recipe for success. The defense played well, but couldn't carry the load alone. He showed some good signs, though. I suspect he'll be a good one when he gets a bit more experience under his belt.

    Bama won a tough road game tonight at aTm. Good to get a character building win in the league.

    I think that Sparty beat Michigan?

    Georgia and Auburn look like contenders for the SEC title. Bama is definitely not going to walk through the league the way we have the last two.

    Well, with Justin Herbert... and their newly improved defense... I think they had a good shot at winning that game. C'est la vie...

    Wait!!! Michigan State has a football team? I thought they'd whittled it down to lacrosse, curling, and women's tennis <G>
