  • Where have we heard this before?

  • The Courier-Journal editorial page comes out against re-hiring Bobby Petrino at U of L. Heh. Well, at least they said something.

  • Jameis Winston looked like a star for Florida St. when it mattered most. Indeed he did. What a great game it was last night. Great effort by both teams.

  • Spencer Hall of SB Nation writes about his experience in Pasadena last night.

  • Interesting. Consider:

    The hiring of Strong suggests a few things. First, it seems Texas might be willing to drop the holier-than-thou attitude when it comes to NCAA issues. Strong, after all, is the head coach who kept assistant Clint Hurtt at Louisville after the NCAA slapped Hurtt with a show-cause penalty for recruiting issues at Miami. The Texas of a few years ago would have crossed Strong off the list after that. This one hired him. Also, Strong's hiring suggests Texas leaders did not place Longhorn Network concerns ahead of football ones. That bodes well for people still learning to navigate the intersection of running an athletic department and a media company.

    Well, now, is Texas going to let him bring Hurtt with him? I rather doubt that. So I'm not convinced on this point, I'm afraid.

  • Tim Tebow misses calling the shot by 1 point.
