College football's four-team, barely playoff announced the selection committee that will be placing Alabama into the four-team playoff for the foreseeable future. Meet the deciders:
- Archie Manning
- Oliver Luck
- Pat Haden
- Tom Osborne
- Barry Alvarez
- Condoleezza Rice
- Mike Gould
- Tom Jernstedt
- Dan Radakovich
- Mike Tranghese
- Steve Wieberg
- and for kicks and giggles, Tyrone Willingham
The committee will release team rankings every two weeks, rankings based on criteria such as "conference championships won." WAC championships, ya think?
Wolf Pack coach Brian Polian stirred some pots this week with comments about the relative academic strength of Boise State versus Nevada, leading us Bronco fans to infer that Nevada loses out on recruits to Boise State because of Nevada's tougher academic standards and causing us Bronco fans to guffaw at the thought.
Coach Polian also noted that the Wolf Pack's academic standards are higher than most Mountain West schools, including Boise State.— Chris Murray (@MurrayRGJ) October 15, 2013
UNR has an 83% acceptance rate. Where does Polian think he's coaching? CSU = 75%, UNM = 65%, Fresno = 58%— Drew Roberts (@mybrainissmart) October 15, 2013
October is National Pizza Month and National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Oregon will celebrate the latter by wearing pink helmets in this week's game versus Washington State.
In related news, there is a homecoming concert featuring The BGP, Calico, and Michael Limbert, none of whom I've heard of and really I'm just assuming they're all bands but don't really know for sure. Nothing like a college concert to make you realize how out of touch you are.
Obvious headline is obvious.
The Unitas Award values seniority, impending graduation, good quarterbacking, and hopefully mustaches.
