    rumors are that Dave Aranda is the leading candidate for the Baylor job.

    A guy on my InsideTexas board posted this about LSU.

    LSU Losses

    Coaches
    Joe Brady and Aranda for now

    Players
    LT Saahdiq Charles
    LG Adrian Magee
    C Lloyd Cushenberry
    RG Damien Lewis
    WR Justin Jefferson
    QB Joe Burrow
    RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire

    DE Rashard Lawrence
    LB K'Lavon Chaisson (Not official yet but hard to imagine him returning)
    LB Patrick Queen
    LB Jacob Phillips
    LB Michael Divinity
    CB Kristian Fulton
    S Grant Delpit

    They have a loaded roster but that is a lot of talent to replace along with both playcallers. If Oregeron wins 11-12 next year, then I guess we'll know he's better than many of thought. Week 2 definitely is looking better by the day.ut LSU

    It's not just talent... it's the experience.
    New guys can have a lot of talent, but it takes a while to get your legs at this level.
    I'm sticking with: losing Burrow is going to be the biggest blow to them. That guy was ELITE in that offense.

    I don't think you can separate the contribution of Joe Brady to that success. The Joe and Joe show was dynamite in a can.

    Ensminger has never showed the flair that offense had, so I'd have to say Kes is right.
    They found a hidden gunslinger in Burrow, and the right guy to get the WR's and QB on the same page.

    Huskers fired their OCoord, that was sort of under the radar. Hired a guy, Matt Lubrick, who has been out of coaching this past year. He worked with Frost though back at Oregon.

    Not official yet, but multiple sources reporting that Kerry Combs will return to coach defensive backs. Good new for the Buckeyes!

    LSU reportedly after Bo Pellini! That should be an interesting sideline with Bo and Eddie O. :D

    A Bellini is a cocktail made with Prosecco and peach purée or nectar. It originated in Venice, Italy. Wikipedia

    A Pellini is a hot blooded Italian football coach! Just ask Taylor Martinez.

    It's official now Kerry Combs in the new Defensive Coordinator for Ohio State University, Gregg Mattison duties will remain the same. Combs new salary will be 1.2 million, twice the amount of his former employment several years ago.

    Coombs should be a very good hire for the Buckeyes Don.
