Awards show - ridiculous.
Wow. That was definitely unexpected. Jenn Brown looked great, as usual. All the more reason to believe that Erin Andrews will soon be out of a job. Haha. Who would you put your money on as the sideline reporter for the National Championship game?

1. Alabama almost completely shutout at ESPN Award Show...

#1 in the country. #1 defense. Heisman finalist. And we get one award? Rolando McClain won the Butkus. That's it. Wow. Talk about some more motivation that Saban can throw at the team, as if they needed anymore. Still no respect. Colt McCoy, Texas QB, won the Walter Camp, Maxwell, Davey O'Brien, and the Johnny Unitas award. Suh won 4 awards as well. Brian Kelly won Coach of the Year, Gerhart won the Doak Walker award, and Kai Forbath from UCLA won the Lou Groza. Yup.

2. Hey, Gambling advocates... STFU!

Talk about ridiculous. The governors do this crap every year. And yet, now that Alabama has won, and the people in the state that are advocates for the electronic bingo halls have a lil bit of ammunition, they're making a story of out of something that doesn't matter. Gov. Riley - take the damn oranges.

3. College Football playoffs --

More ridiculousness this morning. has drawn up a 64-team football playoff. Yeah. 64 teams. You can vote for who you think would win each matchup by clicking the link above. Bama is the #1 overall seed, facing what would appear to be the #64 team - Florida St. Good opening matchup, for a fairy tale, anyway.

4. Brian Kelly is officially the new Notre Dame coach

Kelly is the guy. Count me as one of the many that believes he will be able to win there for a long time. Of course, I also thought Rich Rod would be a winner at Michigan. Shows how much I know. This hiring just seems to fit really well. Like, reeeally well. Kelly is Irish Catholic, and a guy that's always lingered around the midwest for his entire coaching career. If he can't recruit to Notre Dame, after what he was able to do at Central Michigan and Cinci, then it's only because Notre Dame just absolutely is not what it used to be. Kelly develops talent with the best of them. I would expect a quick turnaround because there definitely is talent on that roster.

5. Memphis hires Mike DuBose has learned that Memphis has hired Mike DuBose as their defensive line coach. Interesting fit there. Talk about a fall. Alabama head coach to high school coach, to Milsaps head coach, to Memphis defensive line coach. Man. We all wish him well though. In the end, he is still one of Bear's boys.
