Best of the Bunch-Linebackers

The role of a linebacker, especially in a college defense is pretty varied depending on the system.  In some, they are pass rush specialists, in others they are hybrid defensive backs, but no matter what you call them, the middle 3(or in some cases 4) of the defense are vital for not only run stopping, but in pass defense.  It's where nearly every team's top tacklers come from, and in order to be great there must be playmakers.  This year's units all contain talented playmakers in all facets of the game.  And the 4 units I have picked were fairly easy selections and they stand well ahead of the rest of the country.

8 Players eligible for the NFL Supplemental Draft

Every year there are a few players who for one reason or another find themselves ineligible for school, and if it happens during the right window, they can declare for the NFL Supplemental Draft.  It's not a true draft in the traditional sense, it's more of an auction.  

Quickly, the draft allows teams to bid with a pick, in any of the traditional 7 rounds.  For example if a team bids their 4th round pick, and no other team bids higher, that team gets the player, and forfeits that pick the following year.

The 8 players in this year's draft are pretty unremarkable.

Snap Judgement College Football Week 8

Even though there were not epic matchups, this was still an impossibly great weekend of college football. So much to talk about, I reckon I'd better get it started.

The Gators got a gift, mainly from the officials in their squeaker against Mississippi State. What a farce. This is twice this year the Florida Gators have won while being helped by grossly questionable calls from inept SEC officials. First Arkansas, now Mississippi State. We get it, you want Florida to be No. 1. God forbid you let them decide it on the field. No way should Florida be No. 1 at this point. When you need the refs to spot you against these two teams, you aren't the best team in the country.
