  1. My vote is yes. https://www.nj.com/giants/2020/11/classless-buccaneers-tom-brady-blows-off-handshake-with-rams-jared-goff-its-bush-league.html
  2. Danny Hugh Freeze Jr.[3] (born September 27, 1969) is an American football coach. He is currently the head football coach at Liberty University. A successful high school football coach at Briarcrest Christian School in Memphis, Tennessee, Freeze coached Michael Oher and Greg Hardy. He subsequently served as the head football coach at Lambuth University from 2008 to 2009, Arkansas State University in 2011, and the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) from 2012 to 2016. Under Freeze, the Ole Miss football program committed various recruiting and academic violations that figured in the NCAA's decision to expunge 27 of Freeze's wins and ban it from post-season play for two years.[4] He resigned from Ole Miss after officials discovered that he had used a university cellphone to call escort services multiple times over the course of five years.[5] Early life[edit] Freeze attended Senatobia High School and the University of Southern Mississippi, from which he graduated in 1992 with a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics and a minor in coaching and sports administration.[6] Coaching career[edit] Briarcrest Christian School[edit] In 1992, Freeze joined the staff at Briarcrest Christian School in Memphis, Tennessee, as the football team's offensive coordinator and defensive backs coach. Freeze also served as dean of students.[7] In 1995, he was promoted to head coach. Freeze ran the no-huddle spread offense and led his team to the state championship twice, in 2002 and 2004, and the regional championship each year from 1995 to 1998 and in 2001 and 2002. He received Region 8-AA Coach of the Year honors five times and Associated Press Coach of the Year honors six times.[6] In ten years at Briarcrest, Freeze was 94–30 as head coach (.785 winning percentage) and 126–37 overall.[8] Freeze was depicted in the book and motion picture The Blind Side, about one of his former players, current free agent offensive tackle Michael Oher.[9] While at Briarcrest Christian School, Freeze also coached the girls basketball team from 1992 to 2004, and actually had more success in this role, with an overall record of 305–63 (.829 winning percentage), seven straight championship appearances, and four championships.[10] Following his dismissal from Ole Miss in 2017, some former students alleged that Freeze had engaged in inappropriate conduct with female students while at Briarcrest.[11][12] Freeze has denied the allegations. Briarcrest officials said they were unaware of any sexual improprieties committed by Freeze during his tenure.[7] Ole Miss assistant coach[edit] In 2005, the University of Mississippi hired Freeze as an assistant athletic director for football external affairs. The following season, he became the tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator, positions he held through 2007.[6] After that season, he replaced head coach Ed Orgeron on an interim basis before the hiring of Houston Nutt.[6] Freeze interviewed for the offensive coordinator position with Nutt,[13] a position that eventually went to Kent Austin. Lambuth[edit] In January 2008, Lambuth University, a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), named Freeze its head coach.[14] In 2008, he led Lambuth to an 8–4 record and a first round loss in the NAIA playoffs, marking their first appearance in the playoffs since 2004 under then head coach Vic Wallace. He was considered for the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's head coaching position following the 2008 season, but remained at Lambuth University for another season and compiled a 20–5 overall record, and defeating opponents 41–17 on average. In 2009, he led the Eagles to their best regular season record in school history with an unblemished 11–0 mark. Lambuth advanced to the second round of the NAIA playoffs for first time in 11 years—having won one game before suffering elimination to finish 12–1 as the sixth-ranked team in the NAIA.[6] Arkansas State[edit] In 2010, he joined the staff of head coach Steve Roberts at Arkansas State as offensive coordinator, joining the program after spending less than two months, during the 2009-2010 offseason, as offensive coordinator at San Jose State University.[15] The Red Wolves finished 2010 with a 4–8 record, but their offensive rankings jumped from 95th in total offense and 90th in scoring offense in the NCAA Division I FBS to 43rd and 46th, respectively. The Red Wolves' offense broke nine school records including total plays (856), first downs (262), pass attempts (438), pass completions (266), completion percentage (.607), passing yards (3,057), passing yards per game (254.8), and passing touchdowns (23). The Red Wolves' offense averaged 403.4 yards per game, eclipsing over 300 yards all 12 times it took the field for the first time in the history of the program. A-State posted at least 400 yards of total offense in seven games during the 2010 campaign, the most ever as an NCAA FBS member, all in his first year as offensive coordinator. After the season, Roberts was fired and Freeze was promoted to head coach.[16] In 2011, his only season as head coach at Arkansas State, he led the Red Wolves to a 10–2 record and their first Sun Belt Conference title since 2005. The Red Wolves' offense averaged 447.8 ypg (28th nationally, 1st in Sun Belt Conference) including 293.6 ypg passing and 154.2 ypg rushing.[17] Freeze left Arkansas State before Arkansas State's post-season appearance in the GoDaddy.com Bowl. Ole Miss head coach[edit] On December 5, 2011, Freeze was announced as the 37th head coach of the University of Mississippi. During the press conference to introduce Freeze as the head coach, he stated that he wanted to "retire at Ole Miss." He was signed to a four-year contract with an annual salary of $1.5 million plus incentives up to $2.5 million.[18] In his first season at Ole Miss, Freeze led the Rebels to a 6–6 record in the regular season, making Ole Miss bowl eligible for the first time since 2009 with a 41–24 victory over Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl. His Rebels accepted a bid to play in the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Alabama, on January 5, 2013. They beat the University of Pittsburgh 38–17 to finish 7–6. Freeze received national attention on National Signing Day 2013 as Ole Miss brought in the fifth ranked recruiting class in the country.[19] Freeze won the 2014 Grant Teaff Coach of the Year award by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.[20] During Freeze's third season at Ole Miss, he led the Rebels to a 7–0 start, the program's best start since the Johnny Vaught era. By October, they had risen as high as third in the nation, their highest ranking at that late stage in the season in almost half a century. They ultimately finished 9–3, only the third time since Vaught's tenure that Ole Miss has won that many games in the regular season. That netted them an appearance in the 2014 Peach Bowl: their first major bowl appearance since the 1970 Sugar Bowl, and the biggest since Vaught's tenure. On September 19, 2015, Freeze's Rebels beat Alabama, 43–37, in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, making Freeze only the third head coach, along with Les Miles and Steve Spurrier, to defeat a Nick Saban-coached team in back-to-back years (Michigan's Lloyd Carr beat Saban's Michigan State Spartans in three consecutive years, '96–'98). The victory catapulted the Rebels to No. 3 in the AP rankings. They went on to tally their second straight nine-win season, and garnered a berth in the 2016 Sugar Bowl, where they won 48–20 over Oklahoma State. They finished ninth in the AP Poll and 10th in the Coaches' Poll—their first top-10 finishes in a final poll since 1969. It was also only the Rebels' third 10-win season since the Vaught era. Scandals and resignation[edit] In January 2016, the NCAA charged Ole Miss with numerous recruiting violations. An investigation turned up evidence that Ole Miss employees and boosters arranged numerous "impermissible benefits" for players, such as car loans and cash. At least one recruit was suspected of getting help on his college entrance exam.[21] The investigation reopened soon after star offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil admitted taking money from one of Freeze's assistants.[22] In February 2017—three months after suffering its first losing season since the year Freeze arrived—Ole Miss withdrew from bowl consideration for the upcoming season. The move came on the same day that the NCAA sent an updated notice of allegations charging the Rebels with eight additional violations. Most seriously, it accused Freeze of not monitoring his assistants, and also accused Ole Miss of not properly controlling the program.[21] On July 13, 2017, Freeze's predecessor, Houston Nutt, sued Ole Miss for defamation, contending that Freeze and school officials falsely blamed him for the violations. As part of discovery for the lawsuit, Nutt's attorneys filed a Freedom of Information Act request for calls Freeze made on his university-issued cell phone during January 2016. Nutt's attorneys contended that Freeze and others at Ole Miss leaked information to the press as part of an effort to smear their client.[23] While reviewing those records, Nutt's attorneys discovered a call to a number associated with a female escort service, and alerted Ole Miss officials about it. Freeze claimed it was a misdialed number.[24] School officials investigated, and discovered what they later described as "a concerning pattern" of similar calls dating back to shortly after he arrived in Oxford.[25] On July 20, chancellor Jeff Vitter and athletic director Ross Bjork gave Freeze an ultimatum: resign or be fired for violating the morals clause of his contract. Freeze opted to resign; offensive coordinator Matt Luke was named interim coach.[5] In February 2019, the NCAA punished the Ole Miss football team for the recruiting and academic violations committed under both Nutt and Freeze. The punishments included a two-year postseason ban, three years of probation, and a four-year ban on some scholarships. As well, the NCAA forced Ole Miss to vacate 33 wins from 2010 to 2016. As a result, 27 of Freeze's wins were stripped from the books; only the 2015 season was unaffected. His record at Ole Miss is now officially 12–25; it was 39–25 on the field.[4] Liberty[edit] On October 11, 2018, Freeze was offered a job as offensive coordinator of the Arizona Hotshots of the Alliance of American Football league; he turned it down.[26] Freeze was named head coach of the Liberty Flames football team on December 7, 2018.[27] In his first year with the team, the Liberty Flames played to a 7-5 record, qualified for bowl games for the first time in school history, and accepted an invitation to the Cure Bowl in Orlando, Florida. On December 10, 2019, Freeze signed a 5-year extension with Liberty.[28] Coaching tree[edit] Notable assistants under Freeze who have become NCAA or NFL head coaches: Tom Allen: Indiana (2016–present) Matt Luke: Ole Miss (2017–2019) Personal life[edit] Freeze and his wife Jill have three daughters; Ragan, Jordan, and Madison.[29] Despite his use of an escort service while married, Freeze states he is a born-again Christian and has been outspoken about his faith throughout his coaching career.[30][31] Head coaching record[edit] Year Team Overall Conference Standing Bowl/playoffs Coaches# AP° Lambuth Eagles (Mid-South Conference) (2008–2009) 2008 Lambuth 8–4 4–1 T–1st (West) 2009 Lambuth 12–1 6–0 1st (West) L NAIA Quarterfinal Lambuth: 20–5 10–1 Arkansas State Red Wolves (Sun Belt Conference) (2011) 2011 Arkansas State 10–2 8–0 1st GoDaddy.com* Arkansas State: 10–2 8–0 * Departed Arkansas State for Ole Miss before bowl game Ole Miss Rebels (Southeastern Conference) (2012–2016) 2012 Ole Miss 0–6 [a] 0-5 [a] 5th (Western) V BBVA Compass 2013 Ole Miss 1–5 [a] 0–5 [a] T–5th (Western) W Music City 2014 Ole Miss 1–4 [a] 0–3 [a] 3rd (Western) L Peach† 19 17 2015 Ole Miss 10–3 6–2 2nd (Western) W Sugar† 9 10 2016 Ole Miss 0–7 [a] 0–6 [a] 7th (Western) Ole Miss: 12–25[a] 6–21 Liberty Flames (NCAA Division I FBS independent) (2019–present) 2019 Liberty 8–5 W Cure 2020 Liberty 8–0 Liberty: 16–5 Total: 58–37 [a] National championship Conference title Conference division title or championship game berth †Indicates CFP / New Years' Six bowl. #Rankings from final Coaches Poll. °Rankings from final AP Poll.

  6. Pat Forde shares his thoughts https://www.si.com/college/2020/07/29/acc-shrewd-schedule-announcement-conference-only-football
  7. Watched part of a round table with Reese Davis moderating, sorry I missed most of it but David Pollock had an interesting idea. The conversation had moved to best time to play Fall 2020 or Spring 2121 or both to get in the seasons. Both seasons brought up the wear and tear on the players and the concussion protocol playing full seasons back to back. So David steps in and states his idea would be to play Group of 5 in the Spring and Power 5 in the Fall. This way big money goes to the schools, ESPN/FOX/CBS/NBC/ABC and sponsors would get more bang for the buck, fans would get almost year round college football. Group of 5 players would not be in the shadow Power 5 guys during the season. On the surface to me it seems a consideration but I know others will not think so.....any thoughts?
  8. I guess I should lead with if we have a season. These are the biggest shoes to fill in SEC East according to CFBSaturdays...

  9. I don't recall, maybe Muschamp begs for this type schedule to give him an excuse for not getting more wins. 7 SEC teams in the Top 10. Any question who has the best conference? If you play in the SEC, you are always going to have a tough schedule. We just always seem to get the worst because we face the toughest in the West every year. At the same time, you take a schedule like ours and get 7 or 8 wins, Muschamp can keep the job. Kinda surprised he can get Bobo or others to come coach here.
  10. 2019 Heisman Trophy Odds Tracker Updated July 3, 2019 sportsbettingdime.com The Heisman Trophy is college football’s most prestigious individual award. It’s also very hard to predict who will win. We’re tracking the odds on the favorites, from last year’s title game right up to award week. Every college football season, we track the favorites for college football’s most prestigious award, the Heisman Trophy, by averaging out the futures odds available at major online sportsbooks. Predicting who will win is a difficult exercise, especially in the preseason. In 2018, eventual winner Kyler Murray wasn’t even on the board at the outset, and he was a +2300 longshot when he first popped up in late July. Fellow finalist Dwayne Haskins started out at +3500. Heisman Trophy Favorites [Jul. 3] Incoming Oklahoma QB Jalen Hurts has consolidated his status as the third-favorite, moving from +790 to +690 as of early July. [February] Trevor Lawrence and Tua Tagovailoa are the early favorites. Not coincidentally, they are the two QBs who met in last year’s CFP title game. Like all sportsbooks, Bovada has Lawrence and Tagovailoa well ahead of the pack, with incoming Georgia transfer Justin Fields (Ohio State) a distant third. Heisman Trophy Odds at Bovada Player Odds at Bovada (Jul. 3) Trevor Lawrence (QB, Clemson) +260 Tua Tagovailoa (QB, Alabama) +300 Jalen Hurts (QB, Oklahoma) +650 Justin Fields (QB, Ohio State) +900 Adrian Martinez (QB, Nebraska) +1000 Jake Fromm (QB, Georgia) +1400 Sam Ehlinger (QB, Texas) +1600 D’Andre Swift (RB, Georgia) +1700 Jonathan Taylor (RB, Wisconsin) +1700 Travis Etienne (RB, Clemson) +2000 Who Usually Wins the Heisman Trophy? Lately, quarterbacks. Here’s the list of Heisman Trophy winners by position, going back to the turn of the millenium. Only three non-QBs are on the list (and they’re all RBs). If you want to win this award, you better have the ball in your hands a lot.
  11. Gamecocks spring football not fully ruled out March 20, 2020 | GCF Staff Report South Carolina’s spring football practice has been postponed for the moment, but not technically ruled out as of yet. But the truth be told 'things don’t look promising there. (VIEW ARTICLE)
  12. South Carolina 2020 coaching staff Mike Bobo – Offensive coordinator Travaris Robinson – Defensive coordinator/defensive backs Bobby Bentley – Running backs Mike Peterson – Outside linebackers Tracy Rocker – Defensive line Joe Cox – Tight end Eric Wolford – Offensive line Kyle Krantz – Special teams coordinator/assistant defensive backs Bryan McClendon – Receivers * Rod Wilson – Linebackers * This is the latest reported by Saturdaydownsouth. The last 2 are not confirmed but it seems like B-Mac is staying and he did a good job when he just had the receivers. We came up with some good talent there. I myself have always been a fan of Bobby B ever since he made Byrnes such an awesome National powerhouse and they relied heavily on their RB's. I mean they stayed ranked in the top 10 in the nation the last 5 years he coached there and they won state 4 years in a row. Maybe this is the staff that will put our team back in the running for SEC but with our schedule this year, I would love to see 7 wins.
  13. Hilinski is he the presumptive starter because he's notched a season of experience? Hilinski's up down campaign due to injuries, With that said. Do you see it wide open? Gamecocks will have options here list of primary competitors: Hillinski? Doty? Dak? Hill? Do you expect solid number 1 and 2 will be sorted out at the end of spring practice? My thought is that Hilinksi took his lumps last year. He was obviously thrust into action far too soon and was apparently not 100% for a good part of last season. I'm also not sold on the coaching he was getting from BMac/Werner combo either. Bobo was pretty frank with him in their first sit-down after he arrived and didn't handle him with kid gloves. Bobo has a solid track record with SEC QBs, so I'm hopeful here that Bobo can get Hilinksi straightened out and keep him injury free to show some real progress this year. I hope it's Hilinksi, that's what would work out best, in my opinion, for the fans and the coaching staff. Doty's development, would be best for a healthy Hilinksi to run the show.(Having seen what can happen with a young QB when thrust into action way too soon), but again whoever it is, I surely hope someone emerges and takes a stranglehold of the position and that we don't end up with a starter by default. Would like to see Dak at the number 2 QB and Doty redshirt.
  14. The 247sports.com South Carolina site - TheBigSpur - is breaking on news that the South Carolina football program is losing two assistant coaches, the newest members to last season's staff. Defensive Line Coach John Scott Jr. is accepting a lateral move job for the same position at Penn State, while Running Backs Coach Thomas Brown is moving to the professional ranks with a job at the same position with the Los Angeles Rams. Don't know how well known these moves were to Head Coach Will Muschamp, but he will now need to work to replace both Scott and Brown at two very important positions for the program. The 2020 class that just finalized this past week with the national signing day event, are headlined by its (arguably) top two prospects in DL Jordan Burch and RB MarShawn Lloyd, and now both will be learning their freshman years under different position coaches that recruited them. Could this perhaps be behind the Letter of Intent signing delays for Burch?
  15. Lindsey has accepted a position at Ole Miss under new head coach Lane Kiffin that is considered a promotion. At this point, we do not know his title with the Rebels’ program.
  16. Seems it is heading that which means another assistant needing hire by Muschamp. STEELERS Report: Steelers hire WR coach McClendon
  17. Penn State makes Scott hiring official Feb. 09, 2020 Three days after helping to complete the recruiting of 5-star defensive lineman Jordan Burch, John Scott Jr. is now the defensive line coach at Penn State. The Nittany Lions officially announced the hiring of Scott Saturday night. His imminent departure was first reported Saturday afternoon by TheBigSpur. Scott, a native of Greer, coached one season for Will Muschamp at USC following a stint at Arkansas. He is credited with improving the Gamecock defensive front, in particular Javon Kinlaw who is now projected as a top ten pick in the NFL Draft. Scott and Penn State defensive coordinator Brent Pry have a relationship dating back to their one season together at Georgia Southern in 2010. Scott is the first of what is expected to be three post-signing day coaching departures from the Gamecock staff. Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports reported running backs coach Thomas Brown is expected to take a job with the Rams. And according to sources, receivers coach Bryan McClendon is expected to be named the new receivers coach with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Penn State official release on hiring of John Scott Jr.

  19. Moving up. Next move should mean more wins and even better recruiting for now and future.
  20. Muschamp updates Hill's rehab, progress by Doty and other QBs Feb. 06, 2020 South Carolina Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp discussed the team’s quarterbacks during the National Signing Day press conference on Wednesday. Two new players were added to the position last month: 4-star Luke Doty and Colorado State graduate transfer Collin Hill. “Luke Doty has been outstanding,” Muschamp said, as he updated the progress on some of the team’s midyear enrollees.

  21. ESPN’s McShay on Javon Kinlaw: ‘If God was going to make a defensive lineman ...’ As ESPN’s Todd McShay went over his latest mock draft on SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt, he lavished more praise of the former Gamecocks star defensive lineman. Most notably, McShay put a number on how much more Kinlaw might make after that, a minimum of $12 million. “If God was going to make a defensive lineman, it’s this guy,” McShay said. “It took 48 hours for him to just show every NFL GM, every NFL head coach, ‘I’m the guy.’ Someone was smart enough, probably his agent, to say, ‘You did a good enough job, bud. You can leave the Senior Bowl.’ He was done in 48 hours and he made probably $12, $15 million.”
