    The next story down.....
    "Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Justin Fields plans to ask the NCAA for immediate eligibility and hopes to have an answer on his 2019 future in the next six weeks, according to the attorney helping him with the request."
    'Speculation about Fields' case for the waiver has centered around an incident last September when a member of the school's baseball team referred to Fields repeatedly with a racial slur during one of Georgia's home football games. The baseball player was dismissed from the team and the school made public statements addressing the issue.

    Mars said the September incident is not the only issue Fields plans to raise in his waiver request.

    "Nobody who's on social media would have a problem with Justin getting a waiver if they knew the whole story," Mars said Wednesday morning."

    Former Georgia Tech safeties coach Shiel Wood is joining the coaching staff of Georgia State head coach Shawn Elliott as linebackers coach. Shawn Elliott will probably be fired in December after another Georgia State losing season so Shiel Wood wont be at Georgia State too long.

    Rod Carey is expected to be the next head coach at Temple, sources told FootballScoop on Thursday. We are told the deal has not yet been signed, but Carey is the pick and Temple is expecting to get the deal done today.

    Pretty sure everyone is expecting a good old fashioned curb stomping from Clemson. Maybe his 2nd loss

    Agree on latter but that's how everyone does it now that Nicky Saban went on his wn 35.

    As to the former I guess they think Matty ice passing is better than running and it's painful to watch.

    This year, him throwing is better than running. Their guards were eviscerated by injury.

    I am very surprised that ESPN has mentioned Georgia Tech hiring Marco Coleman as defensive line coach but they haven't mentioned the hiring of Brent Key at all. I thought they would say something since he was offensive line coach at Alabama.

    Wasn't sure where to put this, but Stewart Mandel released his yearly Head Coaching Hires Grades for The Athletic this morning. For those without a subscription, I thought it'd be fine to include the grade and blurb he had for Coach Collins. Overall, he grades it as the third best hire of the offseason, with only Louisville's hire of Scatterfield and West Virginia's hire of Neal Brown as marginally better hires (both given an A).

    Random question. My wife and I are planning a trip this fall and it’s looking more like a cruise than Aruba. Looking like the week of the NCST game. My question is for those that have been on a cruise during football season. Will I be able to watch the game? Or at least stream it? It’s pretty much a lock to be on ESPN but I’ve never been on a cruise and I figure channel selection in the Caribbean could be hit and miss. We’re talking a Royal Caribbean cruise if that makes a difference?
    Thanks!

    I would think you most likely could get it on ESPN+
