A recent CBS Sports report examined an NCAA study which used staff directories on schools' websites for its data that showed the Big Ten has the largest average football staff at 31.6 employees.  Michigan had the conference's largest staff at 40.  The NCAA oversite committee is examining the issue.  The NCAA already approved a tenth full-time assistant coach, effective in January.

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher confirmed that starting safety Trey Marshall will miss the first half of the opener with Alabama.  Marshall was ejected for targeting in the second half of FSU's Orange Bowl win over Michigan.  Marshall is a key piece of the Seminoles' secondary.

LSU's Ed Orgeron announced Texas Tech wide receiver Jonathan Allen will be transferring to Tigerland.  Allen caught 69 passes for 1,158 yards and 10 touchdowns last year.

He's the second Texas Tech player to join the Tigers this offseason.  Defensive lineman Breiden Fehoko made the move last month.

He means Jonathan Giles...... his autocorrect inserts Alabama players a lot.

Good observation TD.  You are correct sir!

I had just read an article on Bama's Allen this morning.

Lance Leipold went 109-6 in eight years at Division III Wisconsin-Whitewater.  He is 7-17 in two years at Buffalo.

Texas State first year coach Everett Withers' team averaged a national-worst 82.4 rushing yards per game and scored 14 or fewer points in each of their final six games.  Meanwhile, his former team, James Madison, won the FCS National title.

When Brohm was a qb for Orlando in the XFL they played in week 5 vs the Memphis Maniax. Shante Carver drove Brohm into the ground knocking him unconscious and sending him to the hospital. 6 days later Brohm played on NBC vs Las Vegas. The sideline reporter asked Brohm how he would be able to play 6 days after that hit. His response exemplefies him as a player and now as a HC:

"Let me ask you 2 questions. Is this or is this not the XFL? Yes it is. Do I or do I not currently have a pulse? yes I do LET'S PLAY FOOTBALL!"

Also another former XFL qb Tim Lester now the HC at Western Michigan sent me a signed photo yesterday and I got a free WMU hoops shirt

Florida Atlantic coach LANE KIFFIN is no stranger to recruiting talent that has yet to even reach high school.  Last week, Kiffin offered seventh grade prospect Kaden Martin.  He is the son of former Tennessee quarterback Tee Martin.  Kaden is 5-11, 175 pounds quarterback at Adams Middle School in Redondo Beach, California.

Maybe Eastern Michigan's CHRIS CREIGHTON should have been National Coach of the Year.  The Eagles went to a bowl for the first time since 1987, and they get nearly all of their offensive production back (8 starters including QB) and their top seven tacklers back on defense.

The Ron Caragher era at San Jose State lasted only four years, and now Oregon State receivers coach BRENT BRENNAN will try to win at a school that has two winning seasons in the past 16 years.

Even though Ohio hasn't won a conference title since 1968, FRANK SOLICH has done a remarkable job winning at least eight games in seven of twelve seasons at the school.

DAVID SHAW has done a great job at Stanford since taking over for Harbaugh with a 64-17 record.  In his six years in charge of the Cardinal, Shaw has posted five double-digit win seasons.  He was selected Pac 12 Coach of the Year in 2011, 2012 and 2015.

Boise State's BRYAN HARSIN  has gone 12-2, 9-4 and 10-3 during his three years as head coach.  That's a 77.5 win percentage.  However, after averaging ten wins a season, his biggest problem is his predecessor who won 88.4 percent of his games.  CHRIS PETERSON  set a ridiculous standard for success going 92-12 in eight seasons.

BRENT VENABLES is Clemson's defensive coordinator and makes $1.7 million per season with a contract that run's through 2020.  He will be entering his sixth season with the Tigers and at 46 year's old, can be patient about landing the right head coaching job.  I'm thinking  when 77 year old Bill Snyder retires at Kansas State, Venables will be first on their list to replace him.

JOE MOREHEAD isn't exactly a household name in the CFB world. Folks in the northwest knew of him, and college football nerds were aware of Morehead's offenses at Fordham, but nationally it did not cause many waves when he was named Penn State's new offensive coordinator.  Well, people know who he is now.  After scoring 23.2 points per game during the 2015 season, the Penn State offense exploded for 37.6 ppg in Morehead's first season, playing a huge role in Penn State's Big Ten Title and Rose Bowl berth.

LINCOLN RILEY is about to begin his 15th season as a college football coach.  He begin as a student assistant at Texas Tech, finishing up as a receivers coach for three years.  He then became offensive coordinator at East Carolina for five years.  From there he move to Oklahoma as the Sooners offensive coordinator and is now preparing for his third season in Norman, Oklahoma.  Did I mention he is only 33 years old?  Bright future ahead for this young coach!

Vanderbilt coach DEREK MASON has received a three year contract extension and raise after leading the Commodores to the first bowl appearance of his three-year tenure last season.  Vanderbilt is a private school and does not release terms or financial details of coaches contracts.

Appalachian State's SCOTT SATTERFIELD is 28-10 overall and 18-4 in the Sun Belt Conference.  He's 27-5 in his past 32 games.  App State just gave him a new 5 year contract that will pay him a base salary of $425,000 per year.  With incentives based bonuses, Satterfield would earn $664,583 in 2017.  Good move on the school's part.

Troy, a Sun Belt power last decade, had five seasons without a winning record before NEAL BROWN'S 10-3 turnaround in his second season.  The 37 year old Brown is a former offensive coordinator at Texas Tech and Kentucky.  He has another good team for the 2017 season.

DANA HOLGORSEN'S ten-win season at West Virginia last year took him off the hot seat, meaning the only coach in the Big 12 under significant pressure at the moment is Texas Tech's KLIFF KINGSBURY.

Washington defensive coordinator PETE KWIATKOWSKI has built the Huskies defense into the Pac-12's best the past couple of seasons, with a disruptive front and a lockdown secondary.  Last year his defense was ranked 10th nationally in scoring defense and 11th nationally in total defense.
