A college football news roundup that includes Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano being a top target for South Florida and LSU paying Dave Aranda big money.


On Tuesday, I met my friend Gabby for dinner at a Cuban restaurant here in Chicago. We had sangria, ate some guacamole, and discussed current events over a wonderful meal. The problem? I drink sangria like it is water after I’ve been in the desert for three days wandering with no liquids in sight. It is the perfect mixture of ingredients. Oh, and I prefer the red.

In college football news, another quarterback has transferred from Alabama, Michigan has lost a quarterback of its own, and the Navy football team bond through the rigors of being Midshipmen. Here are some other newsworthy notes in the latest college football news roundup.

Back in Tampa? – Greg Schiano loved his time in Tampa so much as the head coach of the NFL Buccaneers that he is a top candidate for the South Florida head coaching position that opened up after Willie Taggart left for Oregon.

Schiano’s stint with the Bucs was not exactly memorable, as the team went 11-21 in the two seasons under him. He has proven to be a top defensive mind, including leading the Ohio State defense this season as its coordinator. The Buckeyes are 4th in the nation, allowing just 281.6 yards per game and 3rd in scoring defense, giving up a mere 14.2 points per game.

LSU Doling It Out – We already knew that LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda would become the highest paid assistant in college football, but how much he would earn was not unveiled until yesterday. The yearly salary? A whopping $1.8 million plus incentives in 2017 that will increase by $500,000 each season into 2019.

That sound you hear is real estate agents trying to reach Aranda by phone to show him a “wonderful property that is family friendly and in a great school district” in Baton Rouge.

Do You Know The Way (To San Jose?) – It seems that the answer to that question is “yes” for Brent Brennan, as the Oregon State wide receivers coach has accepted the head coaching position for the San Jose State Spartans. This won’t be Brennan’s first time at the university, as he served as an assistant under both Dick Tomey and Mike MacIntyre during their stints as the Spartans head man.
