Former Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer will be co-hosting a radio show. Good for him, he has been absent from college football for too long.

  • The College Football Playoff selection committee process is flawed, according to Jerrry Palm:

    Among the factors the committee will consider when ranking teams are conference championships, strength of schedule, head-to-head results, outcomes against common opponents, and roster issues like injuries and suspensions.

    Those are fine criteria, but a very significant problem is that the committee has no intention of detailing how it will measure strength of schedule. It seems willing to leave it to the eye of the beholder. That is patently unfair. Teams should know how they are being judged. Teams should be able to schedule toward such criteria to maximize their chances of being selected. That will not be possible, and it will be a source of frustration the first time a team is left out because it is told its schedule is too weak. The committee may refuse to address that this year, but at some point, they will be forced to.

    This won’t work without a strength of schedule measurement.

    Okay, I’m going on a rant here. For the love of God, ladies, put down your controllers and learn to cook. Too many people, men and women, have no idea how to cook a thing, which is why we have so many young people scarfing down fast food and empty calories.

    Both men and women need to treat cooking as a health issue. If you don’t know how, and your significant other doesn’t know how, it can lead to an unhealthy life. I know this from the life experiences of a couple of friends.

    So play a video game or three less, get in the kitchen with mom and/or dad, and learn how to prepare meals for yourself and others. It’s one of the most valuable skills you can possess. It really comes in handy in college for all sorts of reasons, perhaps the least of which is making you more interesting to the opposite sex.
