FX, during the Iowa Stat/K-State game just showed this poll question:
"Who is the most NFL Ready QB?"
Two of those don't belong. Klein is a helluva college QB but nothing I've seen tells me he can be a good NFL QB. Same with Braxton Miller, but he's still young and has time to develop and improve as a passer.
Auburn and Texas are two perfect examples of why recruiting rankings don't necessarily matter. Obviously it helps, but if you can't coach that talent, then you're still a mediocre or bad football team.
Auburn getting beat 41-20 by an Ole Miss team with 67 scholarship players and Texas losing 56-8 to Oklahoma. Mack Brown is now 16-14 in his last 30 games and Chizik and Auburn have been pretty much just flatout bad since Cam Newton.
How many years does Chizik have left on his contract? Didn't he get a huge extension after buying himself a title?
No way Mack is gone. Texas has raked in the dollars since he has been there, plus the money owed him and his new assistants. Mack will be coach until he decides to step down or move up to a different position in the university.
Texas Tech puttin' it on West Virginia. Up 35-7 at halftime.
You're always at risk of a half or game like that when your defense is as awful as WVU's. Offenses are much more likely to come out and have an off day. QB and WRs aren't on the same page, O-line isn't playing up to their usual standards, etc. But, 99% of the time, if your defense is bad, it's going to continue to be bad against anyone you play.
WVU offense isn't clicking today (so far) but their horrendous defense has still allowed TTU to score 35 and tally over 400 yards of total offense in the first half.
