Indiana will probably play better, but the schedule got a lot harder *death glare at Fred Glass*. So a bowl is probably not in the cards again.

So does Notre Dame actually deserve that ranking this time?

I'd definitely make the case for it, yeah. Were in all honesty probably one of the top 25 teams last year with a bottom-half starting quarterback.

They'll have the chance to prove it though with Florida State, Stanford, USC, Arizona State, and North Carolina all on the schedule.

(And, well, apparently Louisville :P)

I don't think North Carolina will be ranked after Week 5. I smell 5-7 for them.

Prediction: Alabama has another stellar year, making their offensive coordinator a highly touted head coaching prospect.

Good news! He's young, already has head coaching experience, and his dad had success in the college and NFL levels!

It's this guy:

I'm quite excited for the SEC Network launch on the 14th. I was worried back in the spring when no one was really unboard but I guess the DirectTV brings it the total households to 80 million. Not bad.

FYI, title game ticket prices are out (and have been since May, apparently)

$450

$650 for Club Level

$200 for Student section and Standing Room

Semifinal prices (Rose and Sugar) have not been determined, but there are concerns that those games may not sellout.

Yeah because the average student who doesn't have a rich mommy and daddy can afford a $200 ticket along with airfare and hotel expenses. Way to over price things.

I'm glad Daniel Tosh is staying busy during his Comedy Central off-season.

Cheaper than the tickets at the BCS NCG.

EDIT: Also there's more ways to get to Dallas than by flying...

This is just them setting up a paper trail to get rid of student seats. Or bilk more money out of the schools.

Why couldn't the semis be played on campus again?

This is all just another step closer to a minor league football system and the death of college athletics. At this rate, the only way the P5 conferences won't kill athletics is if the football players do it first with unions.

“I am immensely proud of the work done by the membership. The new governance model represents a compromise on all sides that will better serve our members and, most importantly, our student-athletes,” [Mark] Emmert said. “These changes will help all our schools better support the young people who come to college to play sports while earning a degree.”

Does he actually believe what he's saying, or is this all scripted?

Self-serving garbage about "while earning a degree aside", he's right. Full cost of attendance will help support the athletes better.

Love the UCLA hate. They're ranked in the Top 10 for the first time since 2006 and everyone is going nuts.

It's just the Preseason Rankings. They don't mean squat.

But, I can't wait to see UCLA prove you guys wrong. :P

U-C-L-A! Fight! Fight! Fight!

Well… :censored:

(Maybe.)

Between this and the field turf, would I be correct in assuming that NDNation has hired a crack team of assassins to ensure Brian Kelly never coaches again?
