That QB article I think is over the top. It implies that Texas should have been able to somehow get these guys that became great college quarterbacks, even though they weren't very highly regarded at the time.

Stafford wasn't a legend in Athens. He was a good college quarterback, not a great one.
Mike Tomlin, and Mike McCarthy
The whole episode reminds me of when Nebraska canned Frank Solich. Cornhuskers were so certain every great coach in America would beat down their door. After 3-4 rejections they settled on Bill Callahan and the rest is history.
Re: Chip Kelly: I admittedly don't follow the college game much, but isn't it widely assumed he only went to the NFL because of the potential for upcoming penalties? Is there any indication he won't jump at the first big time college job (assuming they can get around the show-cause thing, which seems like a fair assumption to me)?
Auburn just signed 4 of the top 15 JUCO players - they are going to be good next year too
Healthy Baylor against Alabama was this close to happening
JUCO players sign in December and begin classes in January. High school signing day doesn't apply
CFBF: what do you think of Florida's new offensive coordinator? Will Roper have enough to work with to save Muschamp's job?
Someone explain to me the seemingly large numbers of suspensions between the end of the regular season and a bowl game. Is this a glimpse into the reality of college football?
Famous Idaho Potato Bowl: worst onside kick ever?
I've followed this fairly closely for a long time. It is a number of things. 1. Academic ineligibility. Grades come out and this results in many suspensions. 2. Violating team rules. A number of schools take a hard line on bowl game participation, and that means following team rules, which can be quite numerous. Missing practices, team meetings, tardiness, etc. In season, it is easy to punish, w/ huge number of days between end of season and bowl game, the schedule for the player gets irregular which invites all kinds of temptation, the only penalty a coach has is bowl game suspension. 3. Legal run-ins. This is your pot, drinking, disorderly conduct, etc. Kids go back home to see the kids from the neighborhood and things happen.
Buffalo rushed back and grabbed the ball then they were hit with a 10 yard penalty so San Diego State started on the 25.
mrams - Do players miss bowl games for suspensions at a higher rate? I ask because there are certainly quite a few one-game suspensions during the season, but obviously those games rarely have the same exposure as bowl games, so we don't notice the suspensions as much.
Teams like Baylor don't get Sugar bowl bids, Oregon maybe. Which also would have been a more interesting matchup.
Clowney isn't suspended - I presume he's playing
I'd double-team him.
The SEC fanboys should be forever barred from even suggesting that the SEC is so good that their intramural teams deserve a bowl bid ahead of other conferences. Or whatever they say. DUKE? Really?
