Florida football recruiting Top-flight QB Matt Corral flips from Gators to Ole Miss

The centerpiece of what would have been Jim McElwain’s 2018 recruiting class for the Florida Gators won’t be part of Dan Mullen’s 2018 recruiting class for the Florida Gators. Celebrated four-star California quarterback Matt Corral made his flip to Ole Miss — something that had grown from faint possibility to impending calamity in recent days — official late Thursday night, tweeting a graphic of himself with the December 20 date for the early signing period and the word “COMMITTED” in all caps. It is the most significant possible loss for Florida’s class, which coalesced around Corral’s commitment in the wake of the Gators’ Friday Night Lights camp in July.

College Football Recruiting Huge visit weekend on tap for Tennessee

Jeremy Pruitt took on the Tennessee job just two weeks before the new early signing period opened. This new rule is going to change recruiting as we know it, as plenty of top talent will come off of the board December 20th-22nd. It’s put the squeeze on new incoming coaches as they scramble to make quick impressions to try and stay in the hunt. For Pruitt and his still incomplete staff, it’s been a mad dash. Tennessee is at an even bigger disadvantage, considering how long the search for a new coach dragged on. Instead of having four weeks to work the trail, Pruitt and company will get just 13 days. That doesn’t mean they can’t sway top talent to Knoxville, however. They hit the ground running

How to start a new bowl game in 9 simple steps

In 1990, college football had 19 FBS (then Division I-A) bowl games. In 2000, it had 25. In 2010, it had 35. In 2016, it had 41, if you count the Playoff National Championship. Bowl games are a business, and business has never been more booming. The slate has more than doubled as organizers and TV networks have decided they could make more money by having more games.

Smoking Musket Roundtable West Virginia Football Basketball and Bowl Games

As the West Virginia Mountaineers have ended their 2017 regular season and basketball season is in a lull, the crew here at the Musket sat down in a shady part of Winfield, WV while drinking appletinis in honor of a dear friend Smitty. Now that the season is over, and we wait for the bowl game, I have to ask What is your takeaway from the regular season? Sure, we probably gave some games away, and I'll always think we beat Texas with Grier, but in general, we beat who we should've beat and lost to who we should've lost to, which is kind of a bummer looking back cuz we were so close to something more. JL: For me, the regular season, until the Texas game, played out about how I thought it would.
