I had to double check that to make sure you weren't trying to slip your Huskers into the picture. They have some big influx of talent coming?

A lot is probably based on Frost's 2nd year at UCF. They had the 2nd best true freshman QB in the country last year. Should have won at NW, OSU, and Iowa.

Have Wisky, NW, Iowa, and OSU in Lincoln. Don't play Mich, MSU, or PSU. If they can just get the defense from below average to above average the B1G West should be theirs.

There is no chance that a Pac12 team wins the CFP, that would require the conference to not be hot-garbage/horrocious. Until I've seen that, even 25-1 is too high.

Though now that Washington is rid of Jake "Noodle Arm" Browning they could have a better shot at having an offense. Their defense is legit and every time I think they've lost too much production in the last 3-4 years they always prove me wrong. Some really good DT commits in this class.

The UW v UO game is going to be SO much fun this year. Will try to go for sure, never been to Husky Stadium, seems as good a time as any.

Also, I'm not sure if there are any USC fans on the board but I'd be interested to hear their opinions of the Kliff Kingsbury shenanigans that are going on.

Hired as OC & barred from NFL interviews. Is now interviewing in the NFL for the Jets job and is expected to interview for the Arizona job.

I hope that Oregon is trying to play this into getting Kyle Ford away from USC...

Watching these two teams go at it is so much fun. I'm down. Same teams, but the players and play styles change so much that it's much more fun than Warriors/Cavs.

Its crazy that a guy who went 35-40 (19-35 in conference) at Texas Tech is getting NFL HC interviews. I mean I could see him as a NFL OC (could you imagine him calling plays at Green Bay?), but a NFL HC?

I mean its probably better hiring Kliff than Jim Caldwell or some other NFL retread, but thats a pretty low bar.

I don't get it; he's barred but interviewing anyway? Or he left USC so he could interview?

Hired as USC OC after being fired from TT. USC barred him from interviewing for NFL jobs. So he quit USC in order to interview.
