Fanhouse's Terrence Moore has decided to pull the obvious and write about the possibility of Urban Meyer leaving Florida for Notre Dame. Oh. Child. Please. Expect Florida backers to better any offer that ND could offer. End of story. This is why nobody paid attention to Moore when he wrote for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.(via Fanhouse)
Call this the blockbuster rumor of the day. The Mountain West Conference may get an automatic BCS berth if they expand to twelve teams and add a conference championship game . The Boise State, Nevada, and Fresno State.So far, I haven't able to find any of the big sites talking about this. If it wasn't Orson Swindle providing the link to the sight I might just discount it altogether. So this might be somebody hearing voices in his head. But it were true it solve a few headaches for the big schools.An expanded MWC with Boise State would mean that the best known BCS buster teams (Boise, Utah, BYU, TCU) would be beating each other up for a BCS appearance every year. It would cut down on the number of undefeated teams each season also, which really benefits the BCS. Where it really helps is that the BCS would cover a growing market in the Rocky Mountain Region. And it could possibly keep Utah Senator Orrin Hatch his calls for a Justice Department investigation of the BCS's legality off their backs for a while.It sounds like a good deal, which means it might be a load of crap. Stay tuned.(via EDSBS)

Tony Gonzalez is now claiming that he and his wife October weren't nekkid in their ad for PeTA. Well, you could have fooled me. Tony and October must have been wearing something from the Emperor's fall collection. That or something went terribly wrong with their cloaks of invisibility.(via ajc.com)
The criticism of Georgia this season has gotten rough lately, but this one really hurts. The Atlanta-Journal Constitution's Mark Bradley claims that if UGA was in the ACC rather than the SEC it would only rank fifth behind rival Georgia Tech, Miami, Virginia Tech, and Clemson. Ouch.(via ajc.com)
Fanhouse's David Steele has an article on Brian Stokes, a Iraq war veteran who served in the Marines and later played football for the Appalachian State Mountaineers . It's also about the family who stood by him and worked hard to to make his dream of playing football come true. Eventually Stokes played on two Division 1-AA National Championship teams for Appalachian State. Real life stories don't get any better than this.(via Fanhouse)
Drew Sharp of the Detroit Free Press gives the terms by which Rich Rodriguez should come back to Michigan for 2010: win the Big Ten or else. Rodriguez's first season at Michigan was 3-9. This year could wind up being 5-7. Expecting a Big 10 championship in 2010 at this rate might be asking too much.Lloyd Carr's last season as Michigan head coach was was 8-4. Rich-Rod had done worse than that in his first two seasons. A Big Ten Championship after that would be a heck of a comeback. It's just a little too much to expect given recent history.What Sharp really wants is to create an impossible situation where Rodriguez is destined to fail. If that's what is expected, then maybe Michigan If those are the terms, Michigan should pull the plug now.(via Detroit Free Press)
It looks like Sammy Sosa is saying is new found whiteness is due to a "cream" used as a skin softener. So if the cream softens your skin what will the clear do to it? (Okay, wrong roid freak. But the joke was too good to pass on).(via ajc.com)
Rivals.com has updated projections of what the BCS bowls might look like:BCS (alledged) Championship: Alabama vs. TexasRose Bowl: Ohio St. vs. OregonSugar Bowl: Cincinnati vs. FloridaFiesta Bowl: Boise St. vs. USCOrange Bowl: Georgia Tech vs. TCUUSC vs. Boise St.? OH PLEASE! OH PLEASE LET THIS HAPPEN! That would be a more epic game than whatever championship game the Bowluminiati could ever come up with. Why? Because it could just turn out to be the ultimate "Put Up or Shut Up" game when it comes to schools like Boise St. A Boise win against USC might be the tipping point on whether the BCS finally bites the bullet and expands into the WAC and/or Mountain West.Sadly, that might also be the reason for this match-up doesn't happen, but it really needs to.(via Rivals.com)
The late great Southern humorist Lewis Grizzard once said "In the south there's a difference between 'Naked' and 'Nekkid.' 'Naked' means you don't have any clothes on. Nekkid' means you don't have any clothes on ... and you're up to somethin!" Well, Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalezis up to somethin'. And yes, he's nekkid.It seems Gonzalez has gone where many a celebrity have gone before him: he gone and done an ad for PeTA in the buff. Yep Tony Gonzalez is one of them kind of fellas...a vegan. And he and his wife October (what January was taken? Oh wait, it was) have followed in the footsteps of Pamela Anderson and Eva Mendes is baring it all for America's most annoying animal rights group. It's another in a long series of anti-fur ads that PeTA is infamous for.The ad covers most of the unmentionable stuff up. And no, you don't get to see Gonzalez's tight...well, you know. And I'm sure Falcons' owner Arthur Blank and GM Thomas Dimitroff and really gonna love this kind of exposure.(via The Sporting Blog)
The hot choice to replace the still not fired Charlie Weis as Former Fighting Irish head coach seems to be Cincinnati's Brian Kelly. Jeff Schultz, columnist for the alleged newspaper The Atlanta Journal-Constitution suggests a possible alternate candidate: Georgia Tech's second year coach Paul Johnson.Oh child, please.It sounds like this idea is more trying to sell papers than any actual reporting. It is seriously doubtful that Notre Dame is going to be looking toward the North Avenue Trade School for a head coach again. Does the name George O'Leary ring a bell? Thought so.Johnson said he has no plans to leave Tech after only two years. Why should he? Most of the ACC is either a downward spiral or just spinning around delusionaly. The same could be said of Georgia Tech's in-state rival, UGA. Johnson is in a prime area for recruiting, and will probably steal as many blue chip recruits from Mark Richt this year as Lane Kiffin will. Thought so.Schultz should be ashamed of himself for even trying to pull a stunt like this.It sounds more like a feeble attempt to justify a paycheck than actual reporting.(via ajc.com)

Memphis Grizzlies center Hasheem Thabeet, the second overall draft pick in the 2009 NBA Draft got a broken jaw Tuesday night. Oh wait, it gets worse. He got it from colliding into his fellow teammate, forward Zach Randolph. First , the first overall pick Blake Griffith goes down, now Thabeet joins him. If I was James Harden, I'd be knocking on wood right now, and hoping to avoid another rolled ankle.(via Yahoo! Sports)
