Tidbits around College Football (with poll)
COULD AUBURN BE BOWLING IN JACKSONVILLE JAN. 1st ?
It’s purely speculation as to whether or not he takes what is now being called a ‘true’ offer extended by Malzahn to be the next Auburn DC. Up to this headline I felt that pigs would fly before Muschamp returns to the Plains for a DC position. Here’s why: Muschamp now has a taste of the HC position. Granted, his interview surrounding his performance in that category would not be highly praised, but maybe it’s beneficial to teams outside of the SEC looking for that SEC flair.
I know that’s a stretch, but it’s a thought before I say he just regresses back to an old role. It does seem as though a DC position is his immediate fit (possibly in the NFL as well). The other thought is (and I’m no history buff on this note) to name an SEC HC who was fired and immediately returned to an old position at their former SEC employer. Yes, he has some time in between the two stops but still. With those thoughts I just did not see his return as a real option…and it still may not be.

Am I the only one who sees FSU falling to #4 as a clear sign that EVERYONE outside of Tallahassee wants to see them lose? How’s that you ask? Pitting them against the #1 team in the first round of the playoffs would prove their mettle, whoever that #1 team ends up being. I also like the situation which puts FSU vs. Bama first, so that BOTH teams have that opportunity to lose in the inaugural playoff. Unless you’re one of the folks who would still pull for Bama to keep the SEC reign over trophies.

Let’s get some speculation on this – Music City, Outback…? Louisville, Wisconsin? What in the heck will our defense look like?
