    Yeah, it's a leap for sure. And it's not just in football, although it's probably the worst sport for that. I can still, 32 years later, vividly remember the shock and dismay of my first day of college basketball practice. The overriding thought was what did I get myself into, there's no way I can do this every day.

    My son had blisters so bad on his feet during training camp, that there was a party one night, and as a freshman new to college he asked "where is it?" and he was informed it was on the other side of campus, and he was like "no way, I don't think I can walk that far."

    He had a 5:30am walk-up call every day, and didn't get back to his room until after 10:00pm. He was exactly thinking what you were, "what the hell did I sign up for?"

    Heh - yeah, my college coach was a big fan of the John Chaney/Temple practice at 6 am bullshit, which was all the rage in the late 80's. Those 5 am ice baths to get taped up were brutal, especially during NH winters...

    Although I will say those early am sessions he had at URI turned out to be good experience for my son, now that he has 5:30-6 am start times for his post-graduate real world job.

    I remember for baseball having 6:00 am practices since there was a ton of snow on the ground and it was the only time the gym was available.

Now, those can be a little (or a LOT) misleading, as developing talent is more important than getting it, as there are a shit pot of great high school football players. But I wonder why it is hard to recruit if you are USC unless it is Helton.
    Itís not the facilities. USC is amazing facilities. Itís a prestigious private school with a shitload of money.

    So, you're saying it is your shitty coach and shitty AD?

    Definitely a shitty coach and weíll see about the AD since heís new. Show didnít like him and says he sucks so not feeling all that great. Lynn Swann was a terrible AD so I canít imagine heís that much worse.

    I donít really understand why Helton canít recruit but apparently he canít. He doesnít seem like the most charismatic guy in the world thatís for sure. Heís not Pete Carroll.

    Ole Miss hires Lane Kiffin.

    Not sure, but I think every team that has hired him has regretted it. Good luck Ole Miss...good luck.

    The football coaches he hired at CU were Dan Hawkins, John Embree, and Mike MacIntyre. MacIntyre got us to a Pac 12 title game but had a losing record every other season. Embree was horrible and Hawkins wasn't much better.

    He did hire Tad Boyle to run the basketball program and he's still the coach with a team that's ranked 20th nationally so I've got to give him credit there.

    But let's get real, the AD at USC is going to be judged by his football hires and that area is one where Bohn has been underwhelming.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    1 LSU
    2 OSU
    3 Clemson
    4 OU

    Not really that hard to come up with the final four. Though, while I think Clemson has to be three due to their schedule and how easy the ACC was this year, they might easily be the best team. It's almost like a 1a, 1b, and 1c out of the top three, you can argue for any order you want and not be wrong.

    Ohio State blew the top seed with their underwhelming win against Wisconsin and now has to deal with Clemson instead of Oklahoma.

    I will go with LSU and Clemson in the semis.
