1st - Banks, Milliner, Jones, Te'o, maybe Mingo and Jordan, Warmack, Reid, Werner, Ogletree, Rhodes.

2nd - Lacey, Chase Thomas, Arthur Brown, Elam, Swearinger, Vaccarro, Hopkins, Minter.

3rd - Rambo, Skov, Rodgers, Simon.

I wouldn't mind any combination of those. Depends on the combine climbers and fallers.

Oh I know, I just wasn't really interested in other teams. I was only interested in ND football and I don't think I was even that big of a fan. I am more of a pro sports fan, I can watch college sports, but can't really get into any one team, maybe I will try watching Pitt or Penn State because they're local teams.

You really shouldn't do that to yourself.

I went to Pitt for grad school two years ago. When I got there they were ranked #15 going into the season. One of my first nights in town I watched the game against Utah, which they lost in OT. I gave up on the idea of getting into it about then. At least they give me a D-I team to properly endorse since my undergrad alma mater is a D-II doormat.

Looks like the second half has actually been kind of interesting.

I don't take it personal, like I said I'm done with the team, I don't mean to sound like a bandwagon jumper, but I don't really care since it's college

yeah but like I said it's the local team, I'm a Pittsburgh fan so why not root for the local D1 team? Maybe I will root for Penn State because they have a D1 football and hockey team.

Penn State has a better chance of being relevant going forward, even with all the sanctions levied against them, especially with two lousy football programs being added to their neck of the woods in the B1G.

Pitt is doomed to be an also-ran basketball school in a mid-market city going forward unless things drastically change. On the bright side they're earning a reputation as a running back factory...the downside of that is that they all leave early.

Yeah, I'm the same way. I cheer for all the local teams. I'm not a die hard for Pitt or Penn State like I am for the Pens or Steelers but I still cheer for them. Cheering for Pitt lately is not easy though but at least they will have the same coach two years in a row. That's some progress.

Penn State would be the logical choice between the 2 teams. I agree Captain Hook, to me there's just a different level of interest between college and pro sports.

ESPN fired Rob Parker. Originally he apologized a few weeks ago for the "cornball brother" remarks about RGIII, then a few days ago backtracked on it, saying his comments were "taken out of context."

If ESPN had any sense of integrity, they would have fired him from the beginning. Instead, they encourage **** like this and only suspended him because of media outcry. I guess when he backtracked on his apology, ESPN had no choice but to fire him.

Rob Parker is an idiot and shouldn't be anywhere near a camera or microphone. The same goes for Stephen A. Smith as well.

^ Skip Bayless too.

ESPN really is horrible these days. Too bad they own the rights to so many games to the point where their moronic talking heads are almost unavoidable.

It would be nice to see NBC Sports Network bump ESPN down someday. Unfortunately I don't think that day is very close until NBCSN gets some better programming.

I heard rumors FOX Sports will set up a network to try and rival ESPN, but again, that'll be a long ways away.

Rumors floating around that the Francisco Liriano deal may be off due to injury. We'll see...

I'm watching the national championship since i slept through the entire thing last night. From what I'm seeing...Warmack is what made Te'o have a bad game. That Bama o-line is just ridiculous.


I'd be so torn if both were sitting there for us to take.

its a right arm injury for liriano, and he's a lefty. So I think a deal will get finalized once he can pass a full physical.

Yeah, Te'o just didn't look right last night. I saw Warmack get out to the 2nd level and block him a bunch and even when Te'o got free he missed tackles. Maybe he was pressing a bit or was one of the players that was simply rusty from the ridiculously long layoff you have before bowl games in college football.

Yep.

I'm hearing more that it's simply holding it up than it's making it questionable. A right arm injury shouldn't effect him in any way, shape, or form aside from passing a physical.

^ Good news about Liriano then.

Cowher took a little jab at Rex Ryan today.

Pitt up big so far against #19 Georgetown. Got another half to go though and they really need this game. I think they've lost 15 out of their last 20 big east games and already 0-2 in conference this season.
