Half way point for many programs: How should we rank them?

2015 ... New Year's Eve

  1. Ohio State (6-0) - sorry, but the Buckeyes have too many weapons not to keep #1
  2. Utah (5-0) - The Utes are the surprise of the Pac 12, as well as all of College Football
  3. Michigan State (6-0) - yes, call me a Big Ten homer, but who have the Baylor Bears played in 2015?
  4. Baylor (5-0) - We may not have much respect, until November for this program?
  5. Clemson (5-0) - The Tigers carry the ACC banner thus far in 2015!
  6. LSU (5-0) - The Tigers lead the SEC right now ... though Texas A&M (6-0) is on the same pace!
  • Texas takes out OU in the Red River Shoutout, as Charlie Strong wins first RRS!
  • Michigan blanks Northwestern 38-0 to win fifth straight, after opening road loss @ Utah
  • Washington State pulls out upset over Oregon in 2 OT ... how the Ducks have fallen!

Two coaches out at Maryland as head coach as associate head coach receive the ax

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The University of Maryland Director of Athletics Kevin Anderson announced Sunday that Randy Edsall has been relieved of his duties as head football coach.

We appreciate Randy’s tireless commitment to the University of Maryland,” said Anderson. “This was a difficult decision, but ultimately this is the best course of action for our football program moving forward.

Offensive coordinator Mike Locksley has been named the interim coach for the remainder of the season.

Having spent more than a decade with the Maryland football program over the course of his career, I feel Mike is best suited to effectively guide our program through the remainder of the 2015 season,” Anderson said. “Mike has previous head coaching experience and is well-respected both locally and nationally.”

In addition, Assistant Head Coach/Outside Linebackers Coach, Lyndon Johnson has been relieved of his coaching duties.
