    My theory on Kiffin is that he was starting to lose his touch at recruiting, which is probably the main thing that got him the job to begin with. If I were a recruit, I wouldn't exactly be excited to sign up to play for Kiffin at this point. USC should be able to sell itself to recruits but it's tough when you have back to back embarrassing and mediocre seasons.

    Say what you will, but at least the man has a system.

    $2 whiskey ftw.


    It is an established sports brand with high traffic that was available and probably in talks to be bought by a competitor. Everyone of CNN's attempts to break into sports in the past was by teaming up with an already-existing brand name.

    CNN is going to start doing more longform reporting in the future with stronger emphasis on documentary-type stuff.


    The Heart Rankings will go:

    1) Georgia State
    A whole bunch more down the line) Everyone else.

    They took care of the quantity part. I think Kiffin was starting to take care of the quality part.

    Read in the paper today that "sources" said that the announcement of Kiffin's firing was met with broad smiles by the players!

    My understanding is that there was some concerns that 2014 recruits were starting to have second thoughts. Could have just been random spin garbage on ESPN but it would make sense that one crappy year is a lot more forgiveable to top caliber players who want to win than two crappy years.

    Word.

    Man the weather at the UW v. Arizona game, which kicked off 3.5 hours earlier than the Stanford v. WSU game, was HORRIBLE. It never rains that hard and that long in Seattle. My seats in husky stadium are way, way under cover and we were still getting pretty wet. There was a mass exodus at half time from the people who weren't under cover. Crazy game, good W for the Dawgs though.

    UW 4-0 for first time since 2002. Seahawks 4-0 for first time ever. Football life is good in Seattle :slayer:

    Also interesting - UW will play 13 regular season games next year. We get an extra game because we are starting off the season with a trip to Hawaii. It will be good to get 4 non-conference games before the start of the Pac-12 season as we will be breaking in a new quarterback next year.

    About to make my pick 'em picks for the year. 20 confidence points on the GSU "upset" of 'Bama (although I seem to be the lone pundit who doesn't think it is actually an upset...)

    Also, if Maryland is for real, this is the weekend they will prove it. Unfortunately.
