Majority of Power Five Coaches Want Power Five-Only Schedules

2

The Worldwide Leader polled the Power Five conference head football coaches on whether or not they'd like to see their teams only play other P5 teams in non-conference play, and unsurprisingly the majority said yes.

But in the ACC and B1G—serial poachers of the MAC's coaches—things were a little more balanced. Noticeably against this notion? Urban Meyer, Tim Beckman, Dave Dorean, Dave Clawson and Brian Kelley (FIRE UP CHIPS!).

The push for autonomy is real, and I won't be shocked at all if in a few seasons this actually becomes true. That's why I say the MAC and other G5 teams should pull their heads out of the sand and breakaway before they're left in the dust.

EMU isn't the only team getting new turf. Buffalo's field was messed up over the winter and the Bulls are re-doing it with a New York state of mind. UB's Jon Fuller gives us a glimpse at how the early stages of the process are going.

...Babers doesn't hide the fact that he copies everything Art Briles does. Call the Falcons Baylor Jr. and watch them fly.

Former Ohio QB Phil Bates Rising Up In Seattle's WR Ranks

+

It's been awhile since Phil Bates name has been heard 'round these parts. (OK, except for when he and Richard Sherman tussled last fall. But it appears that could change quickly.)

In a nice profile on Bates in The Seattle Times, it seems after two seasons on the 'Hawks practice squad, Bates may be ready to make the next move. There's some nice quotes about how he's transformed himself into an NFL-caliber receiver in here.

Toledo Will Face Oregon/Host Bucknell This Fall

1

Toledo's assembling quite the nonconference schedule. Duke, VCU and now Oregon and Bucknell. These recent two may not carry the same name-power that Duke and VCU do, but Oregon is a rising program out west, and Bucknell is a solid mid-major program coming off a down year after three consecutive 25+ win seasons. The Rockets host the Bison.

Jay Harris Leaves WMU To Re-Pursue Rapping Career

7

Per MLive's David Drew, highly touted wide-receiver recruit Jay Harris has left the Western Michigan program to pursue a career in rapping....again. He first did this last year after committing to Michigan State. With the loss of Harris, and the academic ineligibility of Lonnie Johnson (a former Ohio State verbal commit turned Bronco signee), PJ Fleck's highly vaunted recruiting class suddenly looks more and more pedestrian.
