A few things to peek at from this weekend and this morning:
- Dude, where’s my championship game crowd? A couple of more years of this and the ACC is going to have to start scheduling its CG as some school’s home game to get people to show up.
- Dan McCarney’s getting an interview and Charlie Strong isn’t? What’s wrong with this picture?
- Jan Kemp passed away and the AJ-C reminds us that Hale Almand won’t ever be confused with Clarence Darrow.
- The Wall Street Journal looks at the dominance of the South over college football. Nice quote from James Carville about the home folks: “Half the people in that stadium can’t spell LSU…”
- The WSJ also takes the time to remind academics that when it comes to coaching salaries, it’s all about supply and demand, baby.
- One bright spot for Missouri in the Big XII championship game – the Tigers managed to cut Oklahoma’s red zone TD percentage on the season all the way down to 86.25%.
- The South may fall again: Next year’s crop of SEC starting quarterbacks looks like a very underwhelming bunch right now (although I’d be shocked if Ryan Mallett isn’t starting at Arky).
