    I would love to see TCU schedule a game with Appalachian State. They are a very good game and a good win against them would be a plus. While I'm at it, they just hired a new coach after Satterwhite took the job at Louisville. The new coach is Eliah Drinkwitz, who most recently been the OC at North Carolina State, who ranked 16th in the nation in total offense and 22nd in the nation in scoring offense. He is definitely a young coach on the rise and is very well spoken. Keep your eyes on him, I think he will be somebody to watch.

    2 things on #11. Drew Coleman was a BALLER for us and had a nice NFL career. Wasn't much bigger than 5'8" 180 lbs either. As amazing as AD14 was/ is for us. I always wonder where we would have been with Marcus Jackson. I think he was similarly as talented as Andy. Wonder what he is up to these days. Just looked. Drew is now a Defensive coach at Rice. Cool.

    I'd guess Utah, UCF and Syracuse. The Utes are getting a lot of hype and I think it's setting up to be sort of a "Quest for perfection-like" thing that bedeviled BYU in 2008. I know that they made the Pac12 championship game last year, but I think they've now got a target on their backs. UCF, I think, is due not to be the AAC champ. And I have my doubts about Syracuse - other than Clemson, the ACC is pretty weak and the Orange might be the other good team there, but I suspect it'll be someone else. I also don't think Bama, Georgia, LSU and Florida all will end up in the Top 10.

    I don't think that going from playing a UAPB/Grambling to a UNT/Middle Tennessee would make any difference in regard to SOS or pollster perception. We either go undefeated or we don't. Maaaaybe playing all road games against Michigans/UCLAs would buy us some slack if we finished 11-1, but I doubt it.

    I used to believe that we needed to upgrade our FCS to a group of 5 to increase our SOS, but I believe that @Duquesne Frog can confirm that the difference really isn't significant. I do hold on to the perception aspect and wonder if the upgrade is necessary to prevent a 2014, however I am still a pessimist and only believe that blue bloods have access to the playoff games.

    No, you know that it is country, so the card is still safe. Liking one (or disliking), the other, or both is personal taste, but ignorance to either of them and the type of music is a bad Texan move. I haven't met either of them, so I don't know for certain, but I assume the Aggie rule applies. They are probably both nice one on one, but I would expect wooping and other typical Aggie nonsense when they are together. And I know the 'Front Porch Song' couldn't exist with out both of them, but am thrilled I wasn't there when it was written.

    Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightning they Do not go gentle into that good night. Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight, And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way, Do not go gentle into that good night. Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. And you, my father, there on the sad height, Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray. Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    We get money from playing those schools. The FCS game is always a home game (revenue generator), and we don't have to pay them as much for that one-and-done as we would a Sunbelt or CUSA team. Would you like some seasons with only 5 home games? Anyway, I kind of like the idea of having one game where the walkons and scout teamers might get to actually play.

    The Frank Zappa of Generation X. My favorite Primus album of this century. "What ever happened to Lee Van Cleef?" Released September 13, 2011... And... New Zealand psychobilly CD. Not quite Sparky-level vocals, but solid. And, as far as I know, less wastes of space than Sparky. Self-released on October 21st, 2011... This should need nothing said, but in the event someone doesn't have their Texan card handy, it is country. I can't find a copy of the label for it. Lost Highway catalog number B0015657-01. August 29th, 2011... It is all about #10. Don't ask me what the title is. Spetember 6th, 2011... And... No new labels for 1911.

    Feels about right for a preseason poll. Man, if UT can beat LSU (strong chance) and OU (toss up?) and don't slip against any one else, they would be rolling into Fort Worth with a top 4 ranking. I'll be rooting for them until they play us. Love it.

    I'm not sure what to think about this game. Moore scares me bu they have problems on the O-line and the defense could be pretty suspect as well. https://www.hammerandrails.com/2019/8/19/20803903/2019-purdue-football-preview-five-questions

    Iowa has 5 road games that are not easy. Wisco has @ OSU and @ Neb. NEB has a very winnable road schedule. My money is on Iowa to drop.

    An inexperienced line against a GP defense is not ideal. Way too many stunts and slants from the big guys with speed will make it easier get pressure on the QB with only 4.

    I think he will put Julius Lewis in at a safety spot to cover Moore in the slot. That would leave us with a freshman at corner after Daniels' injury but I'll take it.

    Looks like they will have decent experience at offensive tackle but almost none up the middle on the O-line. https://www.hammerandrails.com/2019/8/6/20757099/purdue-football-its-all-about-the-big-boys-offensive-line

    Home school bonfire last Friday night...70 kids. Luckily it wasn't at my house. Oh here in Illinois we have fires at night because it gets down below 100 degrees at night. Like mid-60s. Freshman daughter was asked to the home school homecoming dance, but there isn't a football team, I'm confused? Also, isn't home coming for home schoolers at home?
