- Sam Bradford won one of the closest Heisman races I can recall. Good. Fuck Tebow.

- Apparently, Richmond beat NIU, so they'll meet Montana in the NC game next Friday night. That's a 7 seed against a 5 seed, I believe.

- Gene Chizik got hired at Auburn. Good going, Tiggers.

Bradford is solid but in my view he should have been third. I would have been more OK with either of the other two winning, but whatever. All this means is Bradford will now stink up the joint in his bowl game and Florida will win.

Great. So looking forward to that.

No one cares about the lower division playoffs. Which is why you won't read any stories about how the refs in today's championship game screwed NW Missouri by simply being the worst refs I've ever seen.

The best thing that could happen for Auburn long term is Bobby Lowder dying. The best coaches will never go there as long as he pulls the strings and he'll never give unproven ones any slack to build something long term.

What a lovely sentiment.

Agreed wholeheartedly on the "Fuck Tebow" sentiment. Though, considering McFadden should've won last year, I would've been fine with Tebow winning this year in that circumstance.

I never really bought into the college football pollsters irrationally having a love for Oklahoma over all if they can show it, but with the events of the past few weeks I've begun to believe it. This was Colt McCoy's Heisman.

I think Bradford's late season schedule, 48 TD passes, etc. helped him win. Texas played too many of their tough games earlier in the season, and you can't really blame Texas over OU on Bradford. It's an individual award, not a team one. (Well, it's SUPPOSED to be anyways)

I'm with that. The thing is, if Texas had beaten Texas Tech there wouldn't even really be much of a debate, and the difference in that being a loss for the Longhorns was because their defense didn't (1) get the INT on the penultimate play and (2) didn't stop Harrell/Crabtree on the final play. Neither of those had anything to do with McCoy, so I don't see how he loses the Heisman in that case.

They scored 6 points in the 1st half.

Which...no one would have cared about if the defense had held on at the end, right?

I tried to think of a nicer way to put it, because it's not like I WANT him to die, but it is what it is. He controls every move that program makes and every coach in the nation knows he'll be able to trump every call you make when you take that job. It's like Jones with the Cowboys but ten times worse.

That said he has enough money to get them to overlook those problems anyway.

How did Bradford lose the Texas game again? They scored 35 and one of Texas's TD was on a kickoff return.

I think McCoy should have won, but it is what it is.

So...three year deal for Jo Pa? Really?

I know the team was good this year, but considering he could barely walk half the season might it be a good idea to go year to year on these things from now on? I don't think recruits are gonna get over the age thing just because he has a three year deal, if that was the reasoning.

I think mostly this lets him decide when he retires. It lets him select the terms of his leaving and after what he has done for that University and what he has accomplished on the field, he has that right.

The difficulty with walking was a result of a hip injury sustained while demonstrating an onside kick. It had nothing to do with his ability to coach. He was still coaching the team, just wearing headphones and sitting in the coaches' box.

As for the age thing, Penn State got a verbal from Kevin Newsome (4*QB) on the same day as the contract extension was announced. The "age thing" isn't always a detriment for recruiting. Hopefully the reasoning behind a multi-year deal was to save us from having to hear the "will he or won't he?" speculation during 90% of the game.

Have fun with Chizik. He managed to beat Kent State and South Dakota State this season. I think that is worth $2 million a year, right?

I couldn't be happier that he is gone from my alma mater. Never liked the guy.

I know why he couldn't walk, but let's face it, he is old and it's not like he's going to heal up easily from this(the second year in a row he's been injured). And I don't think the three year deal stops anyone from using his age as a way to recruit kids away from Penn State. It's not always a factor, but it certainly is brought up to all these kids by other schools. From what's been said it was a factor in Pryor choosing Ohio State over Penn State last year.

The speculation isn't going away with this. He can still coach, it just seems to me like Penn State would be helped by going year to year and doing a "coach in waiting" type thing. That's about the only thing that could counter his age being used against him.

I'm impressed that the WAC has two ranked teams(#23 - Boise State). I can't wait till we rumble into Boise State in a month and hand their asses to them on their ugly blue turf.
