This is the time of year when Mrs. College Football puts her foot down.
A regular season that really began in June with conference expansion is finally over. The bowls are coming up and we have a national championship game on Jan. 10 that has a chance to be very special.
So with your indulgence and understanding I will take my ususal Christmas break and re-introduce myself to the family. I will return on Monday, Dec. 27 and we’ll start getting ready for the post-season.
As we take this break Florida has hired a new coach in Will Muschamp and a whole new chapter in the SEC begins. Gus Malzahn, who was a successful high school coach just five years ago, has been given a multi-year contract at a reported $1.3 million per year to stay at Auburn. Wow! It is going to be a very Merry Christmas for a bunch of assistant coaches in this league.
So yeah, there is still stuff going on. In this sport in this part of the world there is ALWAYS stuff going on.
It has been a great season on the field and a tough season off the field. I’ll get into that when I wrap things up after the national championship game.
As always, I want to thank you for your support of this space. While we don’t always agree, there is no doubt that we have the smartest, most passionate group of readers in the business here at Mr. College Football.
I hope you and your families have a wonderful Christmas. Let’s recharge our batteries and get ready for the stretch run.
Merry Christmas. See you on Dec. 27
