West Virginia feels no need to fear now Grier is here

Got a feeling the West Virginia-Virginia Tech game could be the most intriguing of the opening weekend. Yeah, maybe even more than Alabama-Florida State.

Will Grier officially was made eligible on Tuesday for the game. Grier, you might recall, had the Gators in the top 3 in the nation and then failed a PED test ended his season and career at Florida.

PED or no PED, Grier could make a difference in the season opener against one of the top teams in the ACC this season.

VOTE: Would you swap Jim Harbaugh for Nick Saban?

What if Nick Saban and Jim Harbaugh swapped jobs?
If you believe that Nick Saban is the greatest coach in college football today, you’re either an Alabama fan or you pay attention to facts.

Saban has led a team to a five national championships since 2003 (LSU after 2003 regular season; Alabama after 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2015 regular seasons).

He started at LSU in 2000 and led the Tigers to the title in 2003 (game in 2004). He started at Alabama at 2007 and led the Tide to a title after 2009 season. Granted those are two schools alway have a lot of talent, but that is still quick work. And Alabama has been consistently among the top 5 recruiting schools since he has been there.

He’s done so well that a few years ago Saban reportedly turned down a lucrative offer Texas. He later denied it and said, “I’m just too damn old to start over somewhere else.”

But what if, for the 2017 season, Saban indeed started over with a new school? In fact, what if you traded him with the coach from another team? Which team would win a national title first?

Notre Dame football staying out of ACC

Notre Dame
Notre Dame football rumored to be joining ACC

Notre Dame football remains league-less, for now.

Already a full member of the ACC in everything but football, Notre Dame currently includes four ACC teams on its football schedule each season. But the Irish have been insistent on maintaining its independent status.

Despite rumors to contrary, Notre Dame will maintain that status, according to report in the Orlando Sentinel.
