Monday = This video.
For the cat, anyway. Don't worry. We'll get through the week together.
Nate Potter and Billy Winn were named to the Outland watch list for the country's best linemen, and Winn made the watch list all by himself for the Nagurski, which goes to college football's best defensive player. Today's announcement is the Thorpe award for the best DB? George Iloka, perhaps?

You have to have an ESPN Insider account to read the complete gushing review, so here's a paragraph I bogarted for you all:
This team has some concerns -- depth at tailback and quarterback, playmaking at wide receiver, reliability at kicker and punter and, perhaps most importantly, the opening at strong safety -- but the program's consistency and the wealth of experience that will be on the field at all times fuel expectations of another perfect regular season.
Here's his application essay:
Strictly in terms of the college game, I'd lean toward taking Kellen Moore as the best (quarterback) after Andrew Luck. The important qualities for a college quarterback are accuracy, smarts, toughness and leadership, and the Boise State quarterback comes up big in all four of those. I realize the NFL personnel people will be skeptical about his size and arm strength, but you have to marvel at his production at this level. The guy has a 74-to-9 TD-to-INT ratio the past two seasons and has taken only 11 sacks. He's also been very sharp against tough competition (see last year's season opener against the Virginia Tech Hokies or the way he lit up the Utah Utes in their bowl game).
Potter is Kiper's No. 2 offensive tackle, and Winn is Kiper's No. 3 defensive tackle. I won't tell you the list of quarterbacks ahead of Kellen Moore, but I will say that Arizona's Nick Foles is on it.
