To me, this is the best story in college football this year. If uab wins one more game, Bill Clark should be coach of the year...

Glad to see this for UAB and coach Clark. He is one hell of a football coach. He was the head football coach at our local high school for several years and led them to a few state championships. He brought national recognition to our local high school program, at one point I'm pretty sure we where ranked in the top 10 nationally. Roman Harper formally of the New Orleans Saints was one of his players.

Tensions are mounting in Alabama

I was working on the auburn campus monday and was wearing my Alabama cap when one of the administrators walked by and told me that I had the wrong cap on. He said I better watch out, that I may get jumped. I laughed and told him that I wasn't too worried about it. I gave him a Roll Tide and he responded with War Eagle. This should be a good Iron Bowl just not one worth getting shot over. The better team doesn't always win this one, Auburn wins sometimes.

I think its worse than just geography. I think the consider the size of the fan base. Penn getting left out last year has to do with ratings and ratings alone.

When Penn got past over my first thought was some residual hidden feelings about Sandusy. That school and those students will be wrongfully paying for that *******'s actions for a long time.

I still believe a One Loss Bama team is better than most of these other teams due to Nick Saban alone.

I think both of these things are probably true to a certain degree. Unfortunately for Penn State it was the perfect storm.

Penn State was the champion of the B1G, and Championships matter...until they don't.
