Moving on, a long way from home

The AB-H is reporting that Willie Martinez has been hired as the new secondary coach at Stanford.  (Although I doubt it’s for his expertise in defending a Lane Kiffin-coached offense.)

For the cost, those cupcakes ought to taste good.

They may be easy games, but we can’t call them cheap wins at Auburn anymore:

Auburn will pay $2.425 million for three of its four non-conference home games in 2010.

That sum includes $1 million payouts to Arkansas State and Louisiana-Monroe as well as $425,000 to Tennessee-Chattanooga…

The school also will pay $2.325 million for three non-conference games in 2011 — $950,000 to Utah State, $975,000 to Florida Atlantic and $400,000 to Samford.

I wonder when they’ll raise season ticket prices next.  Quality home games like that should have the fans fighting over seating.

Picking up the gauntlet

I guess this is what happens when you can’t get a health care bill passed.

The Obama administration is considering several steps that would review the legality of the controversial Bowl Championship Series, the Justice Department said in a letter Friday to a senator who had asked for an antitrust review.

Granted, the devil’s in the details and it seems fairly clear from the letter’s contents that the administration would prefer for someone else to tote the water on this, but any way you look at it, it appears that the D-1 college football postseason is in for some changes.
