We're back for another edition of the ITB Wednesday afternoon live chat and that means plenty of fun with your fearless leaders Michael Felder and Pat Johnston. As the season approaches there is plenty to discuss. No new news on the UNC, Bama, USC agent front so we'll table that issue for now and instead rock and roll with a mixture of current events and future prognostication.
Recapping media days including voting predictions, the new Pac-12's logo and the total and utter awesomeness that was Robbie Caldwell on the stage will be the first topic of discussion. Les Miles' revelation that UNCis "very, very, very good on offense" was quite the thrill as was his brilliance in discussing clock management.
Plenty of speculation and controversy surrounding both Lane Kiffin and Jeremiah Masoli. Kiffin because of his hiring practicesand how this will effect both his connections to the NFL and his future with new sheriff Pat Haden at Southern Cal. Masoli has more options than just Ole Miss and so we'll discuss which of his choices, everything from WVU, UNLV and Kansas State (mmm Bill Snyder loves transfers), and which benefits the most from the Wild Samoan.
Last topic we'll hit are Heisman predictions. Jake Locker has been hitting the ESPN path hard, Christian Ponder has launched his official Heisman campaign and talk of "who will" vs "who can" win the Heisman is heating up. I'll drop my thoughts on who can win out of the favorites, hit on a few dark horse possibilities and tell you why Mallett and Locker have almost zero chance at grabbing the trophy.
Now some fun paint art of Da U-NC before we hit the live chat.
Enjoy it folks, things should get spicy yet again.
