CFB Preview Week: Breakouts and Pink Slips

Never Forget.
Well, that wasn't the start to the week that I was hoping for.  Where was Stan at yesterday to tell all of those guys (except for me) that their contributions were shit?  I feel like Stan dropped the ball there.  Today, as we seek a gigantic rebound, we identify Players To Watch and coaches with an inevitable pink slips.  You may remember last year when Damman and Dut hilariously introduced us all to Braxton Miller.  How could you not?  We talk about constantly.  Well, hoo boy, LS and Damman are at it again by reminding us of players who finished in the top ten for Heisman votes last year.  Way to be knowledgeable, fellas!  On with the show...

Li'l Strut: Player to Watch – Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville. Teddy was a statistical monster for the Cardinals last year, throwing for 3,718 yards, 27 TD’s and only 8 Ints. He also led Louisville to an upset win over Florida in the Sugar Bowl, after which the nation took notice. This year, Bridgewater will face a schedule in which his toughest two games are Kentucky and Cincinnati. Look for him to put up even more impressive numbers and achieve All-American status. He may even be on a flight to NYC in December.
Coach Guaranteed to Get Fired – Lane Kiffin, USC. I would say Tim Beckman of Illinois, but the Fightin’ Illini has a longstanding tradition of holding onto terrible coaches for too long. Kiffin, however, took over a program that was once the gold standard of college football and he has managed to make it a borderline mid-tier PAC 12 team. In his 3 years in Troy, Kiffin has only managed to win 65% of his games, which included a 7-6 record in 2012. Granted, he had to deal with sanctions, but the talent has always been there. His saving grace may be that he does not have to play Oregon this year. But with Stanford, upstart Arizona, and rising crosstown rival UCLA still on the schedule, expect at least a 4 loss season and a pink slip for Kiffin.

Damman: Player to Watch – Marquise Lee, WR, USC. After playing in the shadow of Robert Woods for a season, Lee emerged as the most explosive receiver in college football as a sophomore. The stench of Lane Kiffin will continue to not hold him back.
Coach Guaranteed to Get Fired – Tim Beckman, Illinois. He was so bad last year (1-11) that people were yearning for the days of Ron Zook. Zook didn’t exactly leave the cupboard bare as there was some talent on the team but, wow, did Beckman really turn this team into a train wreck in one year. 122nd in scoring, 95th in scoring defense last year. Yeah he doesn’t have much of a leash.

Drew: Player to Watch - Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State. Love this kid and his 100mph arm. He's going to put up a lot of highlights for the Seminoles this year.
Coach Guaranteed to Get Fired - Kirk Ferentz, Iowa. I realize they pay him a shit load of money, but they have been bad for several years now and their recruiting has been complete dog shit. I see another awful year coming up and there will be a push for some new blood.

The Wig Master: Player to Watch - Jordan Lynch, QB, Northern Illinois. Last year this cat [dog] averaged 130 yards a game on the ground, over 6 yards a carry, and finished with 19 rushing touchdowns. Oh, by the way, he also threw for 25 touchdowns and over 3,000 yards. No, you silly bastards, Josh Harris didn’t have another year of eligibility, we are talking Jordan Lynch at Northern Illinois. Keep an eye and ear out for Lynch. You will recall that the Huskies caught a beat down in the Orange Bowl last year and presumably the rest of the country remembers as well…which means that Lynch may be overlooked or completely dismissed. Don’t be surprised when Lynch is in the Heisman picture all season long, especially after an opening weekend win against Iowa [I said it].
Coach Guaranteed to Get Fired - Randy Edsall, Maryland. I can guarantee that a DUI saved Damman from an STD (ask him about it). I can guarantee that G$ must powder his balls in the dead of winter. However, it is difficult to guarantee that a coach will lose his job, but count on Maryland parting ways with Randy Edsall this season. Maryland fired Ralph Friedgen following a 9-4 campaign in 2010, which included a lopsided bowl win. Maryland gambled on Edsall, the hot-shot of the moment, hired after taking UConn to the Fiesta Bowl in 2010. In his first two years, Edsall has six wins…three less than Friedgen had in his last season. Oops, time to save face, and Maryland has no choice but to move on.

GSaul: Player to Watch - Lache Seastrunk, RB, Baylor. Seastrunk began November last year with about 200 rushing yards. Then during the last six games, he averaged just over 138 yards a game, earning an unlikely 1,000-yard season where he averaged 8.22 yards a touch in his 101 carries over that stretch (totaling 831 rushing yards and 6 rushing TDs).
Coach Guaranteed to Get Fired - Randy Edsall, Maryland. The Terps are coming off a combined 6-18 record (including 3-13 in conference) the past two years. Maryland will be joining the Big Ten next year with a new coach.

G$: Player to Watch - Kevin "Hollywood" Hogan, QB, Stanford.  It's not fair but every Cardinal QB for the next 50 years is going to be compared to the Cookie Monster, Andrew Luck.  Hogan took the job from the perpetually shitty Whatever Nunes halfway through last year and did nothing but win and win (albeit with game manager-type numbers).  He got his feet wet last season and now it's time to blow up (as much as one can in David Shaw's offense).  If you believe that Stanford is a legit BCS title contender AND THEY ARE, then The Hulkster will be lowering atomic leg drops all over the left coast.
Coach Guaranteed to Get Fired - Bo Pelini, Nebraska.  My God, this guy is an asshole.  You can be an asshole if you are a good coach (see: SabeCakes, Nicky) but if you suck and are a dick then fuck you.  This guy needs to go.  You're never going to be relevant as a program when the face of your program where his hat like a farmer that fucks his own pigs.  If the Big Ten wants to be a big boy conference, they need to get rid of the fraud defensive coordinators masquerading as a head coach and get an actual coach on the sidelines.  This guy blows.

That will do it for day 2.  Stay tuned for Bold Prediction Day tomorrow.  You know what means, right?  We get GSaul's annual prediction of Duke Football!

Player to Watch: Chuckie Keaton - Utah State

They will beat USC in non conference play early in the season and go on to beat Utah later in the season. Keaton will be that non-AQ quarterback you keep hearing about week in and out.

Coach Guaranteed to Get Fired:

Another 1-2 win season will put Ron English back in the bread lines.

I don't get the hate on Bo Pelini. The guy is still managing a declining Nebraska program to 9-10 win seasons and is showing improvement in recruiting and player development.

Player to Watch: Aaron Lynch DE USF

Had a solid year as a Freshman at ND but transferred last year to be closer with his girlfriend. 10+ sacks should be expect and will be a first round draft pick.

Coach Guaranteed to be fired:

Lane Kiffin, how has he not been fired yet?

Why the Ron English hate? That man is doing wonders in Ypsi!

I can't believe I forgot the most obvious firing of all time...Don Treadwell. There is no chance in Hell that he returns for a FOURF awful season. There are rumors from everywhere that our new AD fucking hates him and has been building up his buyout fund ever since he stepped on campus less than a year ago. Worst hire ever.

Nate, I'm telling your wife and kids that you are having an affair with Chaz Keaton.

You can't sit there and tell me that Nebraska is getting better. I won't allow that. Bo is embarrassing that program weekly with his tirades on the sideline. Fair or not, these people believe in undefeated seasons and titles. They don't enjoy watching their black shirts give up over 70 points to a team with no QB while the world watches. He's a DC. He's not a head coach.

GMoney said...

A USF DE? That's good hustle!

How can you fire Lane Kiffin when he buys the band ice cream!!!

Anonymous said...

I did several breakout player searches and Bridgewater was on at least three of them. He plays for Louisville and nobody knew who he was until the Sugar Bowl. I had Dontre Wilson ready to go but figured I would catch shit for that. I stand by my selection.

An former ND player moved somewhere to be closer to his "girlfriend?" That's interesting.

Wigmaster, that DUI story is classic for more than just that.

The Iceman said...

Why didn't anyone mention this Jadaveon Clowney guy? No one has heard of him because you guys don't know how to evaluate sleeper players.

Predicting an Eastern Michigan coach will be fired. Shouldn't that be in the "Bold Prediction" post? I don't remember the last year Eastern was over .500. Mainly because the MAC lacks MACTION!

David Carr's younger brother Derek spins it for Fresno State. That's the guy I'll be watching...only to see if he can end up better than career backup, David. But David has sweet sculpted guns, though!

Coach to get fired is Urban Meyer...because he recruits murderers and racists. And probably rapists too.

GMoney said...

Dontre Wilson would have been acceptable. I was actually thinking about using him but decided not to feed the mouthbreathers.

I think that EMU went 6-6 two years ago but two of those wins came against Findlay and DeVry so they weren't bowl eligible. MACtion!

And remember that the Eagles beat the Ohio Buckeyes three years ago. Well, they didn't lose because of Terrelle and others. I'll give them the win.

Anonymous said...

Randy Edsall is TOTES done, regardless of his record. UM is going to want to make a big splash coming into B1G country next season, and they aren't going to do it with that shitbag.

Dontre Wilson will be a huge breakout player. He will also be the reason Braxton goes to NYC this year.

For my breakout player, and I am going on a huge limb here, but I like Christian Hackenberg. Granted, it isn't known if he is going to start (he should), thanks to Bill Belichick Jr., but if he does, I think that he will have a great year, and be deadly next season.

FYI, Herbie has Jameis Winston as his breakout player which means that Drew's picks this week are just Herbie's thoughts regurgitated for us. That's plagiarism, SON! Quit ripping off Herbie!

Nate said...

This season will be the tipping point for Bo Pelini and I think they'll rise to the challenge.

Nebraska is not your Osborne's Nebraska anymore.

Hell, they're not your Solich's Nebraska anywhere (BTW, BEST coach in the MAC far and away).

10 win seasons in Lincoln will become the standard. They don't and won't pull recruits from Texas anymore now that they're out of the Big Twelve. Their recruiting base is essentially the same as Iowa's.

Pelini is doing fine, despite his brother (who was a good DC) leaving for a Florida Directional.

Everybody is cuffing it to Northwestern this year, while they forget that Taylor Martinez returns for his last year.

If Pelini can continue to win his division and lose the title game to OSU (Michigan as well, starting with 2014 realignment), his job will be safe. He will do just that because the soon-to-be-West division is a joke.

Keaton for Heisman.

GMoney said...

Nebraska is not your Osborne's Nebraska anymore.

Don't tell that to those fans. That state isn't known for embracing change. Dude is just SOOOOO unlikeable and, again, where's a hat like he fucks pigs.

I'm not going to agree or disagree with your Solich trolling but it's hard to respect anyone who considers OU a destination job. Everyone uses the conference as a stepping stone but NOT FRANK!!!

Bridgewater? This topic is like our food topics...really separates the stupid people from the smart people.

Pelini actually has a YouTube that has gone viral over the last 72 hours where he plays a prank on the whole football team. Basically, the whole team thinks one of their own is kicking his ass after Pelini smashes the kid's iPhone. It's pretty funny.

I'm assuming Dontre Wilson wasn't used, because he's the only true acceptable answer.

I did not copy Herbie....Herbie copied me.

Nate said...

No respect for Solich?


The guy had the balls to plaster his face all over US DOT signs promoting safe driving, then gets busted for a DWI mere months later.

In all seriousness, I don't know why Solich hasn't moved on past Athens either. He had OSU dead in the water about 4 years ago in Columbus.

Maybe only the folks in Athens think the posterboy of highway responsibility getting a DUI is funny.

The category is "player to watch"... Not player you have never heard of. Braxton miller had a terrible year his freshman year. I said he was a player to watch because of our new offensive scheme and coaching. I was right. I stand by my post!

Iceman- nobody picked clowney because he already broke out... Which is different than Braxton miller before last year. Eat a dick.

Also, one of Michigan's best defensive players (frank clark) pleaded guilty to a felony just last year. Brady hoke suspended him 1 game. Brady hoke harbors burglars and felons. He will be fired first.

Thanks for bringing that Rape story up, Nate. It's not being brought up because Michigan isn't a sexy team or story. NObody really cares about them. Look out if some Ohio state player gets a free round of golf though!

Prime99 said...

Of way more importance, the MSFL divisions are set. Iceman was my SECOND pick. G$ was last and defaulted into Damman's division.

GMoney said...

Damn right. None of you want to be in my division.

Go figure...two wrongs make it right according to Ohio fans. Problems in some other program do not make yours squeaky clean.

If what you say is true about Lewan then we have a frontrunner for the Weisman this year!

Dut, Iceman was joking about Clowney. Way to be in the loop.

One more time, "Player to Watch" is a chance for you to flex your chops on someone who regular Ohio fans who don't watch other teams might not have heard of. Marquise Lee was the best receiver in the country last year (and quit on Kiffin so you KNOW he's smart). We shouldn't have to keep talking about this but apparently we do.

I think that I've picked Ferentz to get fired every year for the last three. I won't make that mistake again. One day I would like someone to explain to me how his massive buyout was ever agreed to AND how it's hard to recruit to Iowa. The Big Ten makes zillions of dollars and thus should have an unlimited recruiting budget and ELITE facilities. If you can't bring talent in then you're just lazy. You all have more money than God so start making it rain.

Brady said...

"Coach to get fired is Urban Meyer...because he recruits murderers and racists. And probably rapists too"

This quote is so great. I wonder if Iceman even knew of that horrible story. Probably not. Too busy trying to troll Buckeye fans. God we are so in your head.

How does "player to watch" mean someone we haven't heard of?

I know iceman was kidding about clowney. I was simply showing the huge difference between clowney and miller in this category.

No osu fans have said that osu is squeaky clean. Michigan fans (especially ace) often take the "holier than" approach, which is hilarious in the current culture of college football.

Dut completely ignores G$ for his entry to college football week post yet finds time to show up and poke holes in my joke statement. Classic Dut.

It's not being brought up, Cakes, because the media knows that Michigan fans don't whine like little cunts any time a potential black eye on the program happens. They know all they have to do is mildly poke the Ohio bear by running any bad press about them. Then they have themselves a story that will be talked about for months because the Ohio fans piss and moan all over these message boards about how unfairly they're treated by the media.

UGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH...first of all, you can question my authoritaaaaaahhhh when you turn something in.

Second, this is a chance to show off. To prove that I "hired" you for a reason. Bridgewater is the #1 pro prospect QB this year. EVERYONE knows about him. LS is better than that. His primary opponents will be using this in their smear campaigns.

I agree that bridgewater is a terrible selection because he was already really good last year. That is not the case for Braxton.

Great points, JSaul.

Ohio gets more attention than WE ON because the national media wants to take down Ohio because everyone hates them. It's pretty simple.

It is the same reason why turds like Colin T. always talk shit. He knows that you morons will feed his ego and clog his Twitter. Most Michigan fans still communicate via rotary phone. It has nothing to do with relevancy.

Fun fact: Michigan started out 22-6-3 and has went 36-38-3 since. By and large there is a pattern that holds dominance for stretches of 20 years. If that holds true, then you can look forward to your future glory days in 2020 or beyond. Brady Hoke will not be the coach or alive due to complications from morbid obesity.

Although you don't find my FACT fun, its the only fact that matters when you do the math. We play once a year for the last 100 plus years, and have 14 more wins. I hang my hat on all-time records and historical relevance goes to Michigan. Sorry if we have to wait 20+ years for your prediction to come true so that you to be able to potentially brag on the same stat (which we know you will do if the tides ever turned).

I try not to get bogged down by fun facts. They are usually slightly presumptuous/made up and skewed to the person making the argument.

I LOVE when people throw out that all-time record. Great job dominating in the aught's! Look at the last 50 years when college football has been, you know, college football. It's a dead heat. Keep hanging on to that record though, guys. It's still getting chipped away at every year.

Here you go, Brady.

"Michigan's football program as of last year is the second most valuable college football program in the country and is worth roughly $40 million more than Ohio's. Yep...clearly the inferior football program that people nationwide really don't care much about."

Easy there tiger. This number takes into account the bowl bans and NCAA infractions that went against OSU. Also, UM draws from a bigger endowment as well which they actually count as revenue.

In 2011 (the year of which these numbers are based) they added an 8th home game that accounted for another 20% in revenue. Take away that 20% and they are $5 million ahead of OSU. Not bad for a much bigger stadium over the course of an entire season...

So, this year, on profits alone they made $38 MM more than OSU. However, what they are worth is almost incalculable. For instance, UM accounts for 22.5 million in donations as revenue where as OSU files it under the non allocated revenue. If one was to care that much, OSU is beating UM in non allocated roughly $59MM -$28MM.

So adding up the extra home game, them counting endowments as revenue, and postseason play, then yes, they are worth that much more. But if you put everything on the same line, then I'm sure it is much closer.

However, that is a really fucking stupid thing to argue. Since they all file under athletic departments budget, OSU is second, UM is third.

If we are splitting hairs that is.

Considering that Michigan has never played in the bcs national championship, and has only .5 national titles in the last 50 years, I find it hard to believe that they're the 2nd most relevant team in the nation. Probably because the stats that iceman brings up are asinine.

Correct, I took five seconds to google Iceman's claim and read the article rather than look at the list to determine if that seemingly outrageous claim was true. After reading into the accounting of it, I determined that due to the schools different budgeting guidelines that it was retarded, since they both calculated the same items in different ways that affected the bottom line.

Bold claims can get refuted and written off as stupid.

Dut, no no, they've won more back in the 30's, not to mention 4 in a row from 1901-1904(!!!), they are TOTES more relevant to the national landscape of college football.

Anonymous said...

Has nothing to do with relevance to the national land scape.

Historical relevance goes to Michigan. Michigan has more wins than OSU all time (and more wins against OSU all time). They are one of the most storied programs in all of college football.

OSU has only been relevant for the last 60 years? So Michigan is 50% more relevant than OSU in history of man.

If you want to cherry pick eras and cheap stats, I'll read them but I won't acknowledge them as meaning anything more than what I am trying to say right here.

The Iceman said...

The only point I was trying to make is that Michigan is at least as relevant as Ohio...if not more. So for Ohio fans to even suggest that Michigan isn't, is probably the most idiotic thing that has ever been posted here. And it doesn't surprise me it came from the brain of Dut.

"Considering that Michigan has never played in the bcs national championship, and has only .5 national titles in the last 50 years, I find it hard to believe that they're the 2nd most relevant team in the nation"

Butler basketball has made more national championship games in the last 50 years than the Ohio Buckeyes have. I guess that means Butler is a more relevant basketball program, eh Dut? Fucking dumb shit.

I didn't say Ann Arbor folks were the hillbillies. I said anywhere NORTH. I actually enjoy Ann Arbor. It's a pretty cool town they just have a retarded football team/fanbase.

"OSU has only been relevant for the last 60 years?"

Absolutely, 100%. Then again, I'd sure love to hear the argument that we were relevant when we were in the same conference as Wooster, Oberlin, MU (ha!), and UT. I might be in the minority there, but that's my opinion.

We didn't throw money into our football program until the 1930's, so calling us relevant while you kicked the dogshit out of us the 30+ years prior to that is akin to calling the Buffalo Bulls relevant today. I guess we got a big game this Saturday!

So this Bristolmetric stat you seem to swear by is something created by DeadSpin to show people how much SportsCenter time certain people or sports teams got in any given week of SportsCenter over the course of one year. Am I understanding that right? So of course you also took into account every single week of every single year in the 30 plus year history of SportsCenter, right? Or if nothing else at LEAST the last 10 years. You wouldn't just use the stats from the time Ohio dominated the headlines last year because of the Urban Meyer signing or bowl suspension, right? A Buckeye fan would never skew stats to their favor, right???

I'm gonna need more than a year project from the mind of a guy who hates SportsCenter.

Way to bring college basketball into a college football argument. Butler definitely brought themselves into relevancy with those national title game appearances. Fortunately Ohio state basketball has other relevancy factors like big 10 championships, deep runs into the tournament, big 10 tournament championships, and quite a few lottery picks sent to the NBA. What does Michigan football have? Just accept the fact that you've taken a back seat to daddy. OSU was in the back seat in 1897-1933. Congrats. The roles have changes. We're better than you, and we both know it.

Are we talking about historical or present day relevance? Historical, then you guys win, cool. I liked the Civil War era too. Cheap labor!

Present day? It's not even fucking close. Urban Meyer, NCAA infractions, undefeated season, recruiting whatnot, recent ESPN data (you did call for stats, dickbag), conference championships/rankings/bowls for the past decade, and even records all point to OSU being more relevant, right now.

UM is barely in the discussion. Hell, any recent press that I've heard about them has to do with their 2015 recruiting class. Well done fellas! Bringing up skewed revenue figures doesn't do shit to prove relevance.

"Fortunately Ohio state basketball has other relevancy factors like big 10 championships, deep runs into the tournament, big 10 tournament championships, and quite a few lottery picks sent to the NBA."

Okay. So there's more to being relevant than just BCS title appearances. Completely contradictory to what you were saying earlier. That's all I need from you, Dut.

"By the way, nobody is even coming close to beating Ide in an arguement today. He's spitting game all over the place"
