Feel bad for this kid. I was just rummaging around on the Wichita Eagle's site, and saw they had a photo album of KSU's practice at the arena in Pittsburgh. This kid was probably living a dream when this picture was taken. Now that high point in his life has a scar on it.

Jack Thompson in Valdosta, Ga., writes: Hey David, Mountaineer till way after I die! I'm curious as to how well the other schools travel. I know we are well on our way to selling out every game this season and I know a portion of it can be attributed to the Big 12 folks coming to Morgantown. Really what I want to know is, if theres going to be a big ole (insert any B12 school ) motorcoach sporting team colors parking next to ours?! DU: Well, that's a complex question. When Nebraska left, so did the only team in the Big 12 that completely swarms a city regardless of how big a game is. If it's a huge game, you'll see plenty of Big 12 fans in your city... If I had to pick one team you could count on to travel regardless of the magnitude of the game, I'd probably say Kansas State. The Wildcats don't have the biggest fan base, but it's one of the most loyal. The Cats love them some Bill Snyder.

Cosh Train leaving the station for real-z's this time?

"I've got great respect for him as a teacher and communicator," Holtz said. "He's had a lot of success building some of the top programs in the country, and I'm looking forward to working with him again here at USF." Interesting choice of words on what Holtz respects him as...not necessarily a D-coordinator, but of giving Tysyn Hartman quotes to regurgitate.

A Farewell to Chris Cosh?

Bittersweet. I find it hard to rejoice in changing jobs, I guess at least he still has a job so maybe I shouldn't feel bad at all, but...I for sure was less than impressed with your defenses starting in the 2004 and 2005 seasons.

A stop gap approach for a playoff in CFB: GTCat proposes his +1 model

TCU: We have learned that Texas Tech defensive coordinator Chad Glasgow will return to the TCU defensive staff. We would expect current safeties coach Trey Haverty to move over to receivers.

1. In the wake of the Sugar Bowl’s decision to overlook No. 7 Boise State and No. 8 Kansas State, one suggestion being discussed for the next BCS contract is to obligate the BCS bowls to take the highest-ranked available team rather than have the ability to choose an at-large team. The bowls surely will balk, and may cry antitrust. But no one is forcing them to be in the BCS. Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott wouldn’t address that idea specifically but said, "There are things we all see that could be better." 2. A plus-one will be discussed at the BCS meetings next spring but it will take a unanimous vote of the six AQ conferences to implement it before the current contract with ESPN expires in two years. Even if they get that, there’s a bigger problem. The Cotton Bowl, the leading candidate for the fifth site, is on Fox for the next two years; the BCS is on ESPN.

http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfnation/post/_/id/57415/3-point-stance-bcs-changes 2/3rds of Maisel's 3pt stance. I hope the Cotton Bowl throws a wrench into things in a good way. Perhaps a plus one is adopted, and Fox gets more control over the coverage in 2015.

Arkansas: We hear Petrino might move director of high school relations Kevin Peoples to special teams coordinator. There has been considerable outside interest in the position. We also hear that the defensive coordinator job is Illinois interim head coach, Vic Koenning's if he doesn't have a head coaching offer.

Ell sorta tries to apologize to the Mercury

It's good that he took the time to do this interview, but the sincerity of the quotes is hard to really mend any wounds. He doesn't quite go far enough for me, but that's just me. It's always hard to get things out of words on paper. If I watched this interview on TV, perhaps I would feel differently. I suppose the important thing, isn't how I interpret things, but he knows within his own conscience what the truth is. And hopefully it is how he says them.

This year's team, and group of seniors, deserve a sell-out. If you are within driving range, buy the reasonably priced ticket. If you haven't been to a game live this season, this is an extreme value!

Why compare losses when you could compare wins?

So a caller on a Manhattan radio sports radio show (he's a regular) made what I thought was a pretty good point today.  He was outraged about you guys dropping to 4th in the BCS (given that Oregon...

Sounds like the urban legend I heard of RP calling standing team chaplain in to do a last rights ceremony for a failed game plan following a loss.

Feelings Shifting on Neinas' role for our Conference

14

First things first. I think this conference needed a stern, cut and dry decision maker to follow up the mess Beebe left behind. Neinas has been refreshing in that regard. We all know I've been a big proponent of the 10 now, 12 later plan. To me, its two-fold: preserving max funds (to be competitive among other leagues) with our current tier 2 contract supplementing where the tier 1 lacks due to other renegotiations, plus it gives us time to get it right as far as adding #11 and #12, though at this point I think that's essentially Cinci and Louisville. I also think the 10 teams playing together help build relationships between institutions (i.e. more ADs in booths at halftimes with all ADs vs the former split scheduling helps get everyone on similar pages). Anyway, the sentiment in this article I think I agree with. Neinas may be starting to over-step his bounds and speaking for a whole too much with his 'just stay at 10 public talk'. He also needs to either stay quiet to preserve some dignity among the conference if he knows not everyone agrees with the position. I think staying at 10 is crucial to his tenure since he IS serving on an interim basis. Leaving open the other two slots gives the next guy the opportunity to work with the conference membership to get it right. Rather than have a guy who fills a roll for (for the sake of a number) 10 months setting up a situation for everyone else to deal with as he heads back to his sunny AZ retirement house or something.

http://espn.go.com/blog/big12/post/_/id/37635/big-12-bowl-projections-week-9-2 If Mizzou must go to a bowl, please let this be the one. And let USF make them look silly. In other news, Ubbs has us going to the Cotton. If we play like that 2nd half last Saturday, good luck with that! I doubt A&M goes to the Alamo, with dates against OU (probable 4th loss) and KSU following (probably 5th loss). UT beginning to feel good about themselves.
