The most tainted and interrupted college football season in modern history ends with a championship game sure to stir up zero controversy. Elsewhere, transfers and draft commitments and coaching staff fill-ups!
Ahhhh yes, the
SOPA GoDaddy Bowl, which provided the world with one last taste of MACtion before the college football season ended. Now it's on to recruiting season, and we can all -- wait ... really? Again?
Apparently there's another game Monday night, featuring two teams that have already played each other. Probably not a big deal. There was also a press conference about it, which Nick Saban somehow won. We trust you'll visit LSU blog And the Valley Shook and Alabama blog Roll Bama Roll to learn more about whatever this thing is.
(And do we need to talk about what happens if Alabama wins? We do.)
Bill O'Brien has been introduced at Penn State, promising a new coaching staff within days. He's already started, picking up a running backs coach from the Titans. SI.com: School had to go outside Penn State family to show it's moving forward.
Mike Gundy: a man with a big new contract.
Terry Bowden's loss is Rich Rodriguez' gain, as always (not really as always): top returning tackler Brian Wager is leaving Akron for the desert.
Georgia redshirt sophomore DB Jordan Love will follow his heart elsewhere.
An extra year for UNC fullback Devon Ramsey, who shredded his knee in the Heels' season opener.
For one thing, star cornerback Roland Darby has ditched the Irish, with his eye on the ACC -- but many, many other recruiting things happened this weekend, including the U.S. Army game, and I'll just point you in this direction for all that and then some.
And So Forth
The guy from the Honey Badger video picks LSU. Of course.
Could we see another 6-3 game? Kirby Smart thinks not, and he's pretty Smart, so.
