Oklahoma State does his best Kellen Moore impression in win over Arizona

The senior went 42-53 for 397 yards and 2 TD's and 1 INT for a 150.8 QB rating. That's still south of Kellen Moore's 170.1 rating against Georgia, in case you were wondering.

SI's Tony Pauline sees McClellin going in the middle rounds as of right now.

Stewart Mandel goes down the possible results of conference realignment

Glad to see "Give the Mountain West a BCS berth" as one of the options. Also nice to start to see some questioning of the whole 16 team super conference model that everyone has been running with.

Boise State as the anti-Oregon? I like it

Mandel also points out the fact that Oregon has continued to disappoint on the big stage (LSU, Auburn, Ohio State) while Boise State has continued to thrive. Also, you can throw in that 2-0 record against the Ducks.

PDF: Ralph Nader's League of Fans creates Sports Manifesto to take on the BCS

It's actually written by Ken Reed who is the Sports Policy Director for Nader's League of Fans. It builds off the work already done by Death to the BCS and the Playoff PAC. More lobbyists, hooray!

SI's Holly Anderson: Boise State is legit (HT: bronconationeast)

But as she rightly points out, Boise State's season now rides on the hope that Georgia doesn't take. Even though, she points out, is not fair at all.

Anyone notice that RB Isaiah Crowell and CB Branden Smith both wore #1 on Saturday? (HT: Blutarsky)

Well apparently that is allowed if the players are on opposite sides of the ball. Well, Smith has played offense in the past and can't now because of this. And reports are that Crowell won't give it up.

Sure makes all these realignment scenarios look pretty crazy. Can we just drop the geographical reference in conference names?
