    S Noa Pola-Gates [Nebraska - Signed LOI]

    No slight to his ancestry but we need some tough SOB head hunters ala Toby Wright. Get some swagger back into the secondary. Catch the ball or run out of the backfield- no problem, you’re going to get jacked up and demolished. He could become the standard for what a blackshirt should be and a building block that players talk about for a generation. It’s all about mentality and having some natural abilities. I think he has both.

    A lot of transfers. It has become big news when a second string QB doesn't transfer.

    Don't ask me why but I watched one of his videos and he said he was a solid 300+ lbs. The #BeckFacts continue to amaze.

    Are these amazing #Beckfact on his website? Every page has the play diagram overlayed on it which makes reading his nonsense difficult. #GoDeep

    FBS coaches want two tiers of targeting foul

    From the article that's "Mitigating circumstance 2" which I've thought since the first season targeting went into effect that it should be part of the rule. Targeting calls are always reviewed and this can easily be seen in replay in slow motion. I'm not sure how they can accurately determine "Mitigating circumstance 1" which is where a player pulls up.

    Things That Happened - Iowa Edition

    UNL grad and grew up in Nebraska so maybe someone knew him from before? His story doesn't seem likely since he's only been on Hawkeyeinsider since August. https://247sports.com/college/iowa/Article/David-Eickholt-to-join-HawkeyeInsider-120256119/ I think this can be filed under "False Claims". Edit: This must be his article https://247sports.com/college/iowa/Article/Iowa-Hawkeyes-Football-Nebraska-Cornhuskers-Pregame-Scuffle-Fuel-Mekhi-Sargent-Noah-Fant-to-Big-Ten-win-in-Heroes-Game-125295306/

    Huskers Fighting Big Trend

    I remember a coworker said he hoped Tennessee would win. I think he forgot that I was from Nebraska but he was tired of the same team winning it. I regaled him with tales of disappointments from the previous 25 years but he wasn't swayed.

    College Football Playoff 2018

    I don't know what tweets you were seeing but I thought Maisel's column made a lot of sense. I don't think expansion is necessary and we should stick with the 4 team format for at least 5 more years to evaluate it. I believe almost every year either the 1 or 2 team will win it therefore expansion to 8 will only add an additional game that must be played to prove that the top 1 or 2 ranked teams are actually the best teams. If so, then the possibility that the 5-8 ranked teams would win the championship is very unlikely and expansion is not needed. It's also possible that the 3 and 4 ranked teams win it more frequently then expected in which case expansion might make sense. So far I think that has happened once when tOSU won the NC. From the article If the playoffs expand to 8 then there will be arguments to expand it to 16 to appease a group of teams that didn't get one of the 8 trophies. The committee eliminates the need to settle things on the field. One of Maisel's arguments against expansion is that it would just create another round of blowouts. One way to mitigate that would be to have the committee select the 8 best teams. That wouldn't make the current expansionist happy since occasionally their conference champion still wouldn't always get one of the 8 trophies. So it would have to be P5 champs and the 3 best remaining teams that would have to be selected. If the politicians get their way and expansion to 8 happens I'm sure the SEC would prefer to keep the current 4 team format and the compromise will be that the remaining 3 will be by selection committee. One unintended consequence of expansion will be that 1 or 2 of the 3 are from the SEC quite frequently and the UCFs and Boise St's still may not be included.
