Editor's Note: Thank you for helping to rename the morning links. After many great submissions and also the Lyle Smithsonian, the winner is Wake Up, Bronco Nation.

If they'd just quit playing so well, we could go back to focusing on football 24/7, the way God intended. Instead, Boise State is 3-0 after a win over Seattle University (bona fide basketball team) and on the cusp of the Top 25.

The Vandals are 57-point underdogs against Florida State on Saturday. Gif response:

A reporter asked Nick Saban if he had an opinion on this week's Sports Illustrated cover of A.J. McCarron. Saban didn't.
