Forget all this nonsense about Will Muschamp going to Auburn, the biggest news of Friday morning was Urban Meyer's comments. He told a Miami radio station that Notre Dame is still his dream job.
(Sideways cocked head like a dog that has just been shown a card trick)
That should do wonders for Florida recruiting. Or maybe I was right when I suggested Notre Dame is waiting to make a coaching change on the chance it can shake Meyer loose from Florida.
--Jim Grobe's name has surfaced in the Auburn interview process.
The Wake Forest coach is in the midst of a 10-year contract. He talked to Nebraska last season before the school hired Bo Pelini. The question is, who hasn't interviewed on The Plains? As soon as Ball State coach Brady Hoke's name was attached to the job, he emerged on a list of finalists at San Diego State. A Mobile, Ala. Fox station reported that Will Muschamp is going to be the new coach at Auburn. Wrong!
--How is George O'Leary able to recruit?
That's the first question after Central Florida kept his job Thursday despite another player collapsing. It's never a good thing when your bosses hire an NCAA troubleshooter (for a pretty penny, no doubt) to review training methods. I love the line in this story where it is described that Central Florida interviewed 40 athletes and staff members about Brandon Davis' collapse. It couldn't talk to Davis, though, because he is still in the hospital.
Yeah, you might want to get his side of the story.
--Syracuse apparently has hired someone named Doug Marrone from the Saints. I'm sure he's a fine man and we know he is a Syracuse alum. But on the surface, the Cuse just traded a hot (at the time) NFL defensive coordinator for a hot NFL offensive coordinator.
The clock is offically ticking on AD Daryl Gross.
