    I wonder how much money Charles Barkley is going to lose from this game.

    That was a great series of games from the BCS. Probably the best package the system ever threw together.

    Great game. Right down to the same end zone as the USC-Texas game, no less.

    I fell asleep before the 4th quarter, so I seem to have missed everything. Congrats to FSU! Can't wait for the new system next year.

    Also, season ending AP rankings out:

    1. FSU
    2. Auburn
    3. Michigan State
    4. South Carolina
    5. Missouri
    6. Oklahoma
    7. Alabama
    8. Clemson
    9. Oregon
    10. UCF
    11. Stanford
    12. Ohio State
    13. Baylor
    14. LSU
    15. Louisville
    16. UCLA
    17. Oklahoma State
    18. TAMU
    19. USC
    20. Notre Dame
    21. Arizona State
    22. Wisconsin
    23. Duke
    24. Vanderbilt
    25. Washington

    South Carolina is a big mover up the boards- wins over UCF, Mizzou, and Clemson (all top 10) are pretty impressive.

    Texas booster Red McCombs bashes Charlie Strong hire to media

    McCombs was a terrible owner, but did employ Dennis Green as his head coach when he was owner of the Vikings, so I doubt this is racially motivated. However, he's about as delusional as they come- first he lobbied for Saban, next for Jon Gruden. This outburst appears to be a result of a "rushed" hire that did not lead to either of his two chosen candidates accepting the job. Alas, there would be minimal benefit for either Saban or Gruden to leave their current job and inherit a fairly mediocre situation (by Alabama or NFL standards) in Texas.

    Louisville is interviewing Bobby Petrino to return as head football coach. I don't think much of the guy, but he won there- might not be a terrible move, as long as there are parameters in place to prevent Louisville from getting burned, or thrown from a motorcycle.

    Bobby Petrino now has an offer from Louisville to become their head coach, and is expected to return. That is stunning- good for him, though. Always good to see someone rebound from rock bottom, I'm sure he's learned a lot.

    Normally I would consider infidelity a personal matter, but it did spill over into his professional life in some ways that would give me pause if I were a university president. If I were a parent I wouldn't want my child associated with him that's for sure. And then there's his conduct with the Atlanta Falcons, which was the definition of unprofessional. As you can tell I don't think very highly of Petrino, but I believe in second chances because I've needed them my self. I think we all have. Not sure a one year stint with Western Kentucky exactly qualifies as a redemptive journey, but...

    I can't stand the guy. But we're a forgiving nation, as shown time and time over. I hope he's made amends with family and turned things around.

    Doug Nussmeier has left Alabama to become take the same role as OC at Michigan.

    I'd say that the chances are close to certain that his replacement at Alabama will be Lane Kiffin. Say what you want about Kiffin as a head coach, but he was incredible at USC as a coordinator and receivers coach, and he's dynamite on the recruiting trail. When you pair him with the best coach and best defensive coordinator in the game, it's a big upgrade for Alabama, who will likely be looking to implement more no-huddle (in addition to defending it better).

    Edit: James Franklin likely to Penn State. Vanderbilt would be wise to go after Schiano. May be a significant step down from the NFL for him, but it's not so much from Rutgers, and now that the Vandy fan base has tasted success, they don't want to take a big step back.

    I just wish Louisville wound come out and say "look, were taking a step up in competition moving to the ACC, and we have the possibility to hire a coach who knows how to win and recruit in Louisville, and has done so on other big stages. We don't care about anything else. We want to win, and play in the biggest Bowl Games, and for the National Championship."

    Also, Vandy is a tough job. You need exactly the right guy in there to succeed. Outside of Northwestern and Duke, winning elsewhere isn't necessarily a predictor of winning there. I mean, for all his strengths and talent, I'm not sure even a guy like Saban would be a slam dunk at Vandy. But, if they're willing to take a one year bowl ban, Tressel might be a good name to chase.
