Nourishment to wrap up the working week:
- Less than eight months into his job, the NCAA enforcement director has decided he’s had enough.
- Bruce Feldman lists his ten schools with the easiest 2012 nonconference schedules. Yep, Georgia makes an appearance.
- The best thing I can say about the composition of the BCS Presidential Oversight Committee is that Michael Adams doesn’t serve on it.
- For all that have complained about the Pac-12’s strength of schedule numbers, Bill Connelly’s got his breakdown of the conference for you right here.
- Some great double talk from Grant Teaff: “This isn’t something that we have happily done,” said Teaff, referring to the poll being part of the BCS formula the previous 14 years. “We’ve done it because the commissioners wanted us to and the coaches wanted to be part of the selection process and that’s the only reason we’ve done it. There’s no other reason.” So they’ve wanted it, but they’re not happy about it? They can’t kill the Coaches Poll fast enough.
- Expect to hear more of this talk as the new postseason regime settles in.
- Bryan McClendon on this year’s group of running backs: “Probably as far as pure talent-base, probably the most talented that I’ve had in my room ever.”
- Randy Edsall defending himself is everything you’d expect it to be.
- “Jeff Sagarin won’t care,” said Jerry Palm, CBSSports.com BCS analyst. “He doesn’t need the BCS, the BCS needs him.”
