    We'll see when the details about USC come out. The reported number from LSU was $12 million. No solid number is out on USC, but that is the rumor in a few places.

    The Red River isn’t exactly the Mississippi. If you have crossed any river in all of the middle of America (Arkansas, Platte, Ninnescah, etc.), they all look the same…

    And if you go via Wichita Falls, Amarillo, etc, there is no change until you see the volcanoes of northern New Mexico.

    USC is private so the deal doesn’t have to be revealed. Wouldn’t shock me if they don’t disclose it.

    Thanks!

    I just work here. It's a fun job, and campus is much more fun when the team does well. But I still wore Orange and Blue when UF played here last year.

    According to speculation on Tiger Droppings and someone on Twitter they are quoting, Riley was not happy after learning OU would be moving to the SEC. if true, sounds like he didn’t want the meat grinder/pressure cooker of competing in the nation’s top conference whether at OU or LSU.

    Yep, spent a lot of time visiting in Oxford the last couple of years, a lot more money there than I would have ever guessed. A lot of out of town alums have condos just for football/baseball seasons. Sorority girls driving around in BMW SUVs, etc etc, all of which goes against the Miss stereotype. Ive heard (not sure how accurate) that there is a concerted effort to upgrade professor salaries and athletic facilities.

    He clearly said from Plano so heading west wouldn’t really be in the directions. It’s extremely visible with the red dirt banks and all the signage. I’ve only lived in north Texas my whole life but what would I know.

    The best reply I’ve seen on more than one thread over there…

    College sports reporter Pete Thamel seems to have the best scoop right now for all of the new coaching hires and contract extensions.

    He must have the agents direct phone numbers on his speed dial.

    Would be insane to leave A & M money for LSU's current roster

    Why does everyone act like CA has the highest taxes in the country?

    Anyway, I know many Florida fans/alums don’t like my state, but I love it here. :) Riley will likely be the closet thing to Pete Carroll that USC could have hired.

    Lane is tweeting all kinds of license plates and I don’t get it. What have I missed?

    Maybe he’s just on the road recruiting. Some looked more into it as his next coaching destination.

    The wildcard of Heupel to OU is that Tennessee could actually get Gruden this time around

    Nah, the students would all protest again. Not like they have anything else to do or UT might crack the top 100 academically.

    He's cryptic. Might be pointing out all the coaches on the move.

    I see DM taking an NFL OC job. Probably on a team with a young QB, as he still has that “Quarterback Whisperer” reputation. Really fits his personality better as well in that he obviously did not care for recruiting. Do a good job and he’s in line for a NFL head coach gig.
