Monday brunch buffet

Dig in.  Big night ahead.

  • Due to health concerns, Archie Manning isn’t sure he’ll be back on the selection committee.
  • And Bill Hancock says the selection committee may meet less in 2015.  Has he run that by ESPN?
  • Leading the search for LSU’s next defensive coordinator are Les Miles, assistant director of football operations Dean Dingman… and Miles’ agent, George Bass.
  • Don’t know if this is an outlier, an indication of how offenses have changed college football or something to do with a four-team playoff format, but stopping the run doesn’t look like it’s been a key to winning a national title this season.
  • Jon Wilner estimates that the CFP has resulted in another $18.4 million for the Pac-12/$1.53 million for each of its member schools over what the BCS generated.  It’s profitable to settle things on the field!
  • “I played at the FBS (level), and I can honestly say the only difference between FBS and FCS is depth.”
  • Chad Kelly has his second chance.  SEC need, baby!

Today, in back patting

Southern Cal won fewer games this season than in 2014, didn’t win the conference title game – hell, didn’t even win its division.

Still, Steve Sarkisian surveys all that he sees, and pronounces himself satisfied.

USC went 10-4 last year, and after Saturday’s game, Sarkisian was asked if winning nine games qualified as a successful season.

“It was a total success,” Sarkisian told reporters. “We won nine games, we were Holiday Bowl Champions.”

It’s all in how you set the bar, peeps.

As metaphors go, it’s not a bad one.

Boy, this brings back memories of a hot day in Clemson a decade or so ago…

Last night’s game was just as lopsided, too.

There’s offense. And then there’s offense.

Yeah, scoring is up across the board in college football this season.  But even in that context, Arizona State running 105 plays, gaining 626 yards of offense and losing by 35 is insane.

Nobody will remember this in December.

Pac-12 refs could teach their counterparts in the SEC a few things about ineptitude… if that’s what this is.

I’m sure that Oregon fighting for a spot in the playoffs had nothing to do with the non-call there.  Bet Mike Leach really wished for his officials’ post-game presser idea to have been a reality last night.
