Plax didn’t stop there. He also tweeted that in his departure for LSU, Saban “committed to the program” in a meeting with players and then reversed course and “was gone the next day” It was delicious stuff. Well, Saban has responded in typical Saban fashion. *** Surely you noticed the barrage (avalanche?) of watch lists recently unfurled
At 8 p.m. ET tonight on BTN/BTN2Go, we are replaying Maryland’s 23-16 victory over Michigan in the 2014 Big Ten season.

Hey, Rick Neuheisel thinks Rutgers in the Big Ten has a chance to be “really special.” Could RU be the next TCU? Hmmmm.
