We didn’t maintain the consistency through the game. The start of the second half is not good. Better decisions or composure we could have harmed a very good team.”The boys worked very hard and it’s difficult to play against Liverpool especially when they’re in front.”We deserved one goal at least. We have to now rest.”I’m happy because of the way we work and pass the moments football gives. We are consistent – the table doesn’t mean anything.”

CLEMSON, SC – OCTOBER 25: A general view of Memorial Stadium prior to the game between the Clemson Tigers and Syracuse Orange on October 25, 2014 in Clemson, South Carolina. (Photo by Tyler Smith/Getty Images)Christian Wilkins is a defensive tackle by trade, but the 300-pound Clemson Tiger is a spectacular all-around athlete. During spring practice, Wilkins has tried his hand at a number of skills that aren’t usually part of being an interior lineman, like making one-handed catches and kicking field goals.Of course, Wilkins is also pretty good at playing his position. As a true freshman, he racked up 33 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, and two sacks for the Tigers this season. More: The 10 CFB Teams That Could Go Undefeated In 2016 >>>

(Photo by Donald Page/Getty Images)It is Tuesday again, and that means it is time for ESPN’s “Bottom 10.” This week, the Commonweath of Kentucky is unfortunately well-represented.Joining Western Kentucky and Louisville on this shameful list is the University of Kentucky. The Wildcats dropped a clunker last week against Tennessee, satisfying critics who thought they were overrated.Of course, Kentucky is still having a solid season. The Wildcats are 7-3 and can close out the regular season with wins over Middle Tennessee State and Louisville.For now though, they make the “Bottom 10.”This is ESPN’s updated “Bottom 10” after Week 11:RiceCentral MichiganWestern KentuckyUTEPKentuckyUConnRutgersSan Jose StateBowling GreenLouisvilleRight now, it doesn’t look like anyone is going to unseat Rice for the No. 1 spot in these rankings. Most likely, Louisville and Rutgers will end the season on this list.What other Power 5 programs will join them?

ANN ARBOR, MI – SEPTEMBER 10: General view of the fans filling University of Michigan Stadium prior to the start of the game between the Michigan Wolverines and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on September 10, 2011 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. (Photo by Leon Halip/Getty Images)After undergoing multiple changes to the coaching staff over the past few months, the Michigan Wolverines will lose one of their top assistants in Pep Hamilton for 2019.Hamilton has spent time as the quarterbacks coach for multiple NFL teams and was the offensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts for nearly three seasons.The addition of Hamilton was supposed to elevate Michigan’s passing attack, but the offense was underwhelming at times since he moved to Ann Arbor.With Josh Gattis ready to serve as the offensive coordinator for the Wolverines, Hamilton is leaving to the program to pursue other coaching opportunities.Gattis was recently with Alabama as the co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach.According to Sam Webb of 247Sports, Ben McDaniels will replace Hamilton as the quarterbacks coach for Michigan.McDaniels was the interim wide receivers coach last season, and it’s pretty evident that Jim Harbaugh was satisfied with his job performance.Breaking: Pep Hamilton Leaving #Michigan; Ben McDaniels is New Quarterbacks Coach – https://t.co/UXFPQVRxCF pic.twitter.com/9qloHBQ29R— Sam Webb (@SamWebb77) February 5, 2019This marks the end of Hamilton’s second stint under Harbaugh, as the two coaches were together at Stanford in 2010.ESPN has confirmed the departure.Confirmed that former assistant Pep Hamilton is out at Michigan. Wolverines had to drop a coach after hiring new OC Josh Gattis. First reported by @SamWebb77— Dan Murphy (@DanMurphyESPN) February 5, 2019Expectations will be high for Michigan’s offense in large part because Shea Patterson is returning for his senior season. He finished this past season with 2,600 passing yards, 22 touchdowns and only seven interceptions.It’ll be on McDaniels and Gattis to get the best effort from their offensive weapons next season.
