Discussion in the NFL thread about TB's Sunday game likely getting moved got me wondering about college football.

Games that, to varying degrees, could be impacted Saturday:

Eastern Washington at Florida (Gainesville)
Wake Forest at Florida State (Tallahassee) [officially acknowledged that alternative plans are in place but no announcement on where that is or when a decision will be made]
SMU at Central Florida (Orlando)
East Carolina at South Florida (Tampa) [unconfirmed reports that the game has been moved to FAU at Boca Raton]
North Carolina State at Clemson

South Carolina State at South Carolina (Columbia) has already been moved from Saturday to Thursday

I really hope KU and TCU both win this weekend so that GameDay will come to Lawrence for the first time ever the following week.

Does anyone actually believe that UK is the eighth-best college football team?

Me neither.

ESPN FPI has them 30th. Massey's composite of dozens of computer rankings has them 12th. I don't think they're the 8th best but they're pretty good. They have a coach who's gotten them about as far as a basketball school in the SEC is ever going to get.

There was a pretty public brouhaha recently when Calipari proclaimed UK (which got bounced out of the tournament in the first game last year and in the year before that, had the worst record in modern history) a basketball school. The football coaching staff, including Vince Marrow and Stoops, didn't take too kindly to that.

Kentucky football has 3 bowl wins, two of which were against ranked teams, since Kentucky basketball's last NCAA tournament win.

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

Montana QB Lucas Johnson left the Idaho State game a few minutes ago leaving 2nd stringer Kris Brown to task of keeping the Griz win streak alive. The Griz were strong in the first half, but I am suspicious about their second half. They kind of flopped it in the fourth letting the Idaho State Bengals catch up to within 8 with under a minute left in the game. The Griz can ill afford to lose Lucas Johnson. They have the home game next week as part 2 of the "Potato Series" I dubbed last week. If they put Kris Brown at center for that game, which is probably the likely scenario, that's gonna be a tough one. They almost let that game get away on them with about 7:00 minutes left, but hang on the #1 and get the W for five straight games.

Yet another disappointment for UW. 4th wasted season in 5 years. To me last year's loss at Minnesota should have been the nail in Chryst's coffin. I felt like the only one calling for his job . . . not anymore. This team is playing 1960 football in 2022 and it's not working. I'm fine with a team that is built around a physical defense and productive run game, but it's unbelievable that the passing attack has been this bad for so long, and this team is going nowhere until that is fixed. We've all seen enough to know that Chryst is not the guy to fix it.

UConn was and still is not a good team, even if all starters were healthy. They're in most "bottom 10" lists this season.

But yesterday a 19-14 victory over Fresno State (first over a 1-A errrr FBS opponent since 2019) was a little spark of happiness.

I'm a long time Badgers fan, and I'm not usually a "fire the coach" guy after one or two bad games, but it may be time to move on from Chryst. The game has passed him by. Even bringing in a new offensive coordinator has done nothing to improve the offense. Chryst was the offensive coordinator during the Bert Bielema years, and they had some of the highest scoring offenses in school history. I'm not sure how this is even the same coach.

Dang, if this wasn’t one of my more accurate takes. I felt like the only one on the “fire Chryst” bandwagon.

I don't understand the notion that Paul Chryst can have the Wisconsin job as long as he wants to no matter what. He inherited a program that typically finished with 2-4 losses each season, and he is averaging 3.3 losses per season, including half-length 2020. With the amount of talent that Wisconsin has relative to the other teams in the west - significantly more than everyone except for Iowa and occasionally Minnesota - I would not be surprised if Chryst's seat warms up a little by this time next year.

Chryst fired, Leonhard named interim coach: https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaafb/paul-chryst-has-been-fired-as-wisconsin-badgers-head-football-coach/ar-AA12vM2p

I was suprised they fired him now. I thought they would wait until the end of the season to make a decision. I guess now at least they get to see what Leonhard can do as head coach and/or get a jump on finding a replacement. I just hope the coaching change doesn't set the program back even further if the next head coach doesn't work out.

The UW Athletic Department didn't want the Badgers' recent on-the-field performance to become an issue in the upcoming governor election?

Years have faded the details in my memory, but at one point the UK football coaching situation was waded into by a Kentucky governor.

Speaking of UK, the Wildcats really got exposed at Ole Miss Saturday. As I noted in the Dish/Disney dispute thread, I missed the game due to running errands away from home Saturday, but I listened to bits and pieces on the radio. I didn't even bother to watch the recording of the game; I deleted it unwatched. I don't think UK will finish any better than 9-3 now. I anticipate losses to Tennessee and Georgia.

Happy for Jim Leonhard; he's from my neck of the woods.  I went to school with some of his cousins.
Heck, my brother called this like five years ago.  "Jimmy's gonna be head coach one day."  That day is here.
