Bama will roll again.
You can see how Coaching is the difference and why the Chuggers will be the Chuggers forever.

good stuff. Roll Tide. Pretty much the same story every year. They'll be right there and likely win it all again. And yes, spenis could not handle a coach like saban.

Bama rolled into Miami to show the future local recruits the power of the Crimson Tide.

The six players drafted is tied for the most-ever by a single team in the first round. The 2004 Miami Hurricanes is the only other team to have six players drafted in the first round

My alma mater, Cal State Chico, had a football team (they sucked) my first two years of college and then ended the program. I have adopted Ole Miss as my college football team as that's where my brother-in-law and three of his kids went to school (one currently). They have a condo (second home) down there and our family goes down for all the home games.

Ole Miss has always had a high powered offense. They scored on Alabama almost at will when they played them last year, to the point where Nick Saban accused Ole Miss of having their defensive playbook. Bama, of course, scored at will against Ole Miss because their defense has always pretty much sucked.

Lane Kiffin is in his second year as Head Coach, and the defense is much improved. Early talk of Matt Corral (Ole Miss QB) in running for Heisman.

Not saying they can get past Bama, but it's going to be a fun year. Also tailgating at The Grove is back and no more mask mandates for the stadium. College football is back baby!!

Never been a huge college fan but followed it anyways to a degree. When I was in Detroit in postgrad school half our class was from UM. Ann Arbor is crazy for football....always packed with 100K plus fans every game. Back then Schembechler was the coach and they won a lot. Woody Hayes was considered the devil. Huge rivalry with OSU. Always amazed me re: the passion of those fans. Now Harbaugh is the HC and they suck and there is talk of canning him on his ass LOL. UM is not what it used to be.....but they are handicapped due to academic requirements for their recruits vs other schools like OSU. I just remember Brady Hoke going there and trying to be a HC and failing terribly and then the whole of Ann Arbor and the alumnii turning on the guy...and he became the devil LOL. It shows how mediocre SDSU is for hiring a bumbling idiot like Hoke again. SMH.

Hoke's team had trouble with UNLV, pretty typical. Somehow they are currently #19 and probably will be moved down a few notches in the rankings after a 28-20 win over terrible UNLV (2 wins total). Maybe the Aztecs will come up bigtime and get a bid to the Pretzel Bowl:
POLL IMPLICATIONS

At the very least, San Diego State Will Likely hold in the Top 25 discussion in this week’s poll with a possibility of moving down a spot or two after having trouble with the two-win Rebels. The Aztecs rank 19th in the College Football Playoff rankings.

Why is it that SDSU can never recruit a QB that can throw the ball consistently?

Yet the rest of the MW seems to find QBs that light up SDSU.

yeah that and other positions and the head coach. They've had some stellar RB's though obviously. I don't think they ever will be a top ranked team unless they somehow get into a better conference like the Pac 12 and can recruit top talent if they can sign a great HC who can make them a top team in the Pac12. Probably never gonna happen. SDSU and that crappy new stadium personifies the small town mentality of the city.....dumb council and the corruption of that whole stadium fiasco in dealing with the NFL will keep the town from ever having a truly awesome football program...whether college or pro.

But yes a great question as to why other teams in the same second rate conference can find pretty damn good QB's while SDSU cannot is an enigma. UNLV had to bring in a backup apparently due to the first guy getting injured in the first half and the guy thew for big #'s. WTH.

lol....bandwagoner. 10-1, gee they have the same record as OSU let's all jump up and down with glee. No apology to Hoke the way he left SDSU before, still don't like the guy. And UM alumni hate him for what he did. Tell ya what , let's see SDSU go up against a decent conference....til then Hoke is all smoke and mirrors. UM got burned thinking the same thing you currently are thinking about the guy LMAO. Jim Harbaugh came in the very next year with essentially most of the same personnel and it was night and day. Just sayin' bro, let's not go overboard.

Michigan is overrated just like the rest of the Big 10. The Aztecs play in and are members of the Mountain West. It is what it is. Better than no football or shiatty football thike the FUdeans.

agree, Big 10 (12) is overrated when compared with the SEC....just about all of em are by comparison. But Mountain West is like 3rd tier down so really it's not a great comparison to the upper 2 tiers (just a rough breakdown). Yes it is what it is. And Hoke is who he always was....a jerk for the way he left for greener pastures at UM and left his recruits in the lurch....he was gonna make a big name for himself and fell flat on his face and made a fool of himself there. Ok so by your analysis of the Big10(12) being overrated , what does that make Hoke if he completely failed in that conference? Yes it's all relative....Hoke looks like a good coach again in the Mountain West against a bunch of tomato cans. He'll likely ditch SDSU again in another failed selfish attempt to make himself appear relevant.

hoke is where he should be. The mwc is his level and why he is successful.

he failed at the big ten because the conference was “too big” for him.

yup, agree he is at his level in the MWC. Doing well thus far. I still don't like the guy but, hey, he's doing his job......after he moves on again maybe I'll be more on board.....I don't know...I think I just lost a hell of a lot of enthusiasm for SDSU after that whole stadium fiasco and what we are left with instead. Better than nothing I suppose, hope all who are on the bandwagon have fun and good luck. Nothing personal.

I dont think he is going anywhere after what happened at Michigan. He is 61 and I dont see anyone throwing stupid money at him.

After see the highlights,looked like the Aztecs started slow, but eventually took the game over.
Brookshire looked pretty good.

Aztecs looked like crap until Hoke stumbled onto the brilliant idea of putting Brookshire in at QB, that dude jump started the offense. I still say fuck that guy.

UM always chokes. This one at Ann Arbor, they have a slight chance but seems like OSU is blowing out teams even more thanUM.
