Also here is the Coaches Anonymously dish on opponents article from Athlon I love every year.


12-Pac Podcast Preview

The Wildcats have some bigger bodies in the WR rotation. The position group hasn't looked like this since the Stoops years. The Wildcats are deep at RB and have a position coach that looks like he can still play.

Arizona State

ASU returns a lot on defense and not much on offense. And Dillon Sterling-Cole appears to have fallen to third string and Jayden Daniels won the starting job. The Sun Devils added a former 5-star player very late and he is eligible this year.


The Bears have built one of the best defenses in the country and the secondary is a big part of that.


The Red Baron reflects on his legacy and time at CU. The Buffs have some depth at TE and more than one player competing for snaps.


12-Pac Podcast Preview

The Ducks could use improvement in two units in particular the WR's and the secondary and new players could make an impact in both.

Oregon State

The Beavers need some experienced players to step up on defense in particular and on the team in general for the season to be a success.


The Cardinal has Costello back and that helps. The Cardinal is celebrating 125 years of football.


It's a Chip Kelly team so we have to talk about all the track stars. UCLA had pretty awful special teams last season, #112 in Beta_Rank, and they brought in a 31 year old Australian to help out.


12-Pac Podcast Preview

Bru McCoy has been out with an undiagnosable fever. The renovated Coliseum was opened up to the press and it looks as if they did a very nice job.


12-Pac Podcast Preview

The Utes were previewed in SI. Kyle Whittingham and Andy Ludwig first coached together 30 years ago.

The Huskies also got the SI carwash. Washington's recruiting has picked up under Petersen, but I think they still have a little more to climb to get into the same conversation as Bama, Clemson, and Ohio State; that is true of a lot of programs though.

Washington State

This article on Mike Leach's QB meetings is outstanding. It's down to Anthony Gordon vs. Gage Gubrud for the starting QB job.

Football Thing:

A deeper dive into DL technique numeration; where do you line up.

Non-Football Things:

This is a good book.

This is a good song.

This is good to know. It's getting close to fall grass planting season.
