    Anderson leads the country in sacks and TFL's . Anderson has 14 sacks and 26.5 TFL's...Hutchinson has 10 sacks and 11.5 TFL's. Anderson is on pace to hold the all time record for TFL's in a season. Next closest name of note in TFL's is Jermaine Johnson with 10 less at 16.5

    You guys are forgetting Jordan Davis and his 23 tackles and 2 sacks.

    seems weird- I would’ve thought it would be -13 or similar

    Just based on the numbers + UM being at home, -7 makes sense. UM is ranked top 5 in SP+ and a lot of other metrics. UM is good.

    Adding in the context of OSU/UM + yesterday's show against MSU is where that -7 number feels pretty light and the reason no one is picking UM.

    SP+ is dumb tho. It has Clemson #8, 6-5 Tennessee #14, 6-5 Florida #22. It’s broke this year, he’s done too much tweaking using too much of previous seasons data.

    It's been a very good predictor of betting lines every time I've checked. There are always going to be a few teams who are statistical anomalies that stand out.

    Some context for that would be nice. Some teams played 4-5 games last year, some played 13. Pressures per game would be more interesting.

    a mini-lecture about early college football history at the University of South Carolina last week. If you weren't able to make it, good news! They recorded the whole thing, and you can watch it here, if you'd like.

    yea all kinds of factors go into it, so slightest alteration of shade can mess things up. Think Knoxville has had issues with their growth. Just have nostalgia for the northern schools being able to grow rye and other seed types whereas in the south the heat causes most to go with bermuda. Nothing like the lushness of Northwestern.

    I feel like Ohio Stadium is long overdue to replace their fieldturf though? Thing looks a decade old in some spots.

    It is long overdue and they're replacing it this off-season. They're picking a new design too

    Same happened at Michigan when they put grass in to replace the original turf. Seemed like they were always having problems and replacing it every year until they went to the field turf.

    A while back I saw the WYO AD with a quote about how the Mountain West is basically just non-prime time inventory for the TV networks. And it sucks for the fans and students and college towns. But they'd be getting an even smaller TV payout than they already do and that drives everything

    yeha they mentioned that early in the game. Is it part of bringing back the chargers, or is it a simpler build?

    I don't recall the specifics but I think it's being built mainly for SDSU and soccer.
