Weekly College Football Musings - Preseason
Posted Aug 15, 2010
Today we resume our habit of weekly observations of the college football world. With less than three weeks to go until the opening weekend there is much going on out there, so let’s get into it.
Terry Bowden’s halfway house
---- Malcontents at major programs can rest easy knowing that Terry Bowden and the University of North
is there for them. The Division II school is becoming a haven for transfers adding WR
('Bama) this summer. Fortson becomes the sixth former Seminole on the Lions roster. You have to wonder if
might end up there when he gets out of jail.
isn’t the best center in the SEC Ben Jones is. But the
blocker will be on the shelf for awhile after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his knee. The Bulldogs hope to have Jones back for the season opener against Louisiana Lafayette on September 4th, but they NEED him back for game two at
---- I’ve written several times that people are under-appreciating the problems Alabama is likely to have replacing nine starters from last year’s defense. Well the Crimson Tide proved my point in a scrimmage Saturday. Quarterbacks
combined to complete 47-of-59 passes for 603 yards and eight touchdowns in the workout. Puts an entirely new meaning to the phrase, “the defense rests.”
Something to Ponder
established a website to promote QB
for the Heisman Trophy. They might be re-considering that effort today. The Seminoles offense turned it over a reported five or six times and incurred the wrath of Coach Jimbo Fisher for a sloppy afternoon of work. Ponder was 4-and-5 as a starter last season.
Hold the Masoli

remains the No. 1 guy with Masoli and

---- That’s a requirement for
who is out at least a month after suffering a broken jaw. Baker was listed as a starter after spring practice but it now appears LSU will not have him for at least the first two games against
Reggie says he’s sorry
athletic director Pat Haden tells all that
has apologized to him for the trouble he’s caused the Trojans program. Haden says Bush claimed is he could go back and fix things he would, and if he could return the Heisman Trophy he would. Hey Reggie, that you can do. Just box up the trophy and send it to the Heisman Trust, 17 Battery Place, Suite 943, New York, N.Y. 10004.
Big Ten unsure of divisions
---- The “Conference That Can’t Count” will have 12 members next year and will play its football championship game in Indianapolis. However, commissioner Jim Delany is not sure how the league will break up into two divisions of six teams each. Delany says preserving rivalries and establishing competitive balance is more important than geography. Common sense says
will link up with
in the Western Division with
in the Eastern half.
