    Will do a deeper dive on them later this off-season, but I have a feeling Kentucky will be a tough out again in 2020. I believe they bring back most if not all of a highly rated offensive line and will have a quarterback who can throw a forward pass again. Defense has been reloading without hiccup recently. Considering how much talent they lost after the 2018 season and the QB injuries, last year was a heck of a job by Stoops' coaching staff. Wouldn't surprise me to see them unranked to start the year only to end up with a top 25 ranking and a nice ATS record.

    Bowden was a real treat to watch last year.

    Clemson/UGA to open 2021 in Charlotte. Both teams will be breaking in a new QB, should be a fun game.

    Clemson - The Tigers fell short in the national championship game, but will likely enter
    the season as the top team in the country. Clemson returns six starters on each side of
    the ball, including all four defensive linemen and a Heisman candidate at quarterback and
    running back. Tigers are loaded again!

    Alabama - Charlie Strong, who has had head coaching stops at Louisville, Texas and South
    Florida is the latest former head coach to join Nick Saban at Alabama. Strong will serve as
    a defensive analyst for the Tide.

    LSU - Defending national champion LSU will face Utah in a home-and-home series in 2031
    and 2032 the schools announced Monday. With the addition of Utah to the schedule, LSU
    is now scheduled to play at least one nonconference regular-season game against a Power 5
    conference team for the next 13 years. Utah now has 26 nonconference games scheduled
    between 2020 and 2032, including six against members of the SEC. (Florida Gators 2022-23,
    Arkansas 2026 and 2028 and LSU.

    ACC - The league is joining the Big Ten in supporting a one-time transfer exemption for student
    athletes in all sports. Athletes would be able to transfer one time without having to sit out a year
    of competition. Not sure how receptive the NCAA will be to this proposal.

    Nebraska - The Huskers have missed a bowl game for three consecutive seasons, marking their
    coldest stretch since the mid-fifties. Some are now doubting Frost is the man to get the program
    back to the glory days.

    to its fourth starting quarterback in as many years.

    Mississippi State - I wonder what the over/under would be on passing yards Mike Leach posts during
    his first season with the Bulldogs? He has the QB to go high......

    Recruiting - One football program stood out head and shoulders above the rest of
    major football when it came to scholarships offered to the 2020 recruiting class.
    Southern Miss offered a staggering 587 scholarships to the 2020 recruits. Tennessee
    was next with 490 offered. Each program signed 23 commitments each. Compare
    that to some of the more selective schools like Rice (70), Northwestern (70), and
    Stanford (74) who each extended well less than 100 scholarships each and each
    signed 25 recruits or less. Take a look at a sample of some other well know football
    schools.

    Clemson (106), Texas (130), Notre Dame (160), USC (176), Oklahoma (199)
    Alabama (252), Auburn (263), Georgia (267), Oregon (313), LSU (316)

    Question: What in hell would Southern Miss have done if say 100 of its 587 offers
    had committed to the school? That would have fun to watch.
    I'd move heaven and earth to break 100 on this course. Caddie, try heaven; you've
    already moved most of the earth.

    Very good SI article from last year concerning skyrocketing scholarship offers.
