    Jeremiah Masoli, fresh off a Rose Bowl appearance, leaves Oregon and enrolls at Ole Miss (and will play immediately)

    He's allowed to leave the state of Oregon?

    Liked Fark's headline about the Boise State-Idaho schedule dustup:

    After years of complaining that no one will play them because opponents are afraid of being upset, Boise State decides to stop playing Idaho because they are afraid of being upset

    It's a steal for the Rebels.

    As a Duck alum, I can't say that I'm sad to see him go.

    The SI.com piece on Masoli was a nice little valentine to him. The guy certainly has pleaded guilty to a lot of things he didn't do.

    He may be a good guy, and I hope he gets his life on track. I'm glad his next arrest and guilty plea for something he didn't do will be some other program's headache.

    I'm more interested in what Masoli means to the balance of power in the SEC.
    His presence alone isn't enough to beat Alabama, I think.
    But for the rest of the league and looking at Ole Miss's early-season schedule, the Rebs could start really hot and might get on a roll. Weirder things have happened.
    It is interesting that the SEC West now has at least three players -- Ingram, Mallett, Masoli -- who could be in the running for the Heisman.

    I don't think there's any way imaginable Masoli joins a new program this late and performs anywhere near a Heisman level. And that's not even factoring in the baggage he brings with him, which won't help him with the voters.

    Top of the Big Te-Lev-en should be very strong. Pryor needs to stay healthy & continue to improve for tOSU to live up to expectation. Iowa may well win the conference, due to a better home schedule....Wisconsin is also strong.

    PSU should take a step back, due to breaking in a new QB. As much (as a Buckeye homer) as I hate to say it.....suspect Michigan may finally start getting their sh*t together. Should have a good idea of where they are, after the ND game.

    Great, another crappy undefeated Big Ten team that gets to the title game and gets whupped. Jim Tressel loves losing on the biggest stage, I swear.
