Today’s Chorus is brought to you by college football. Because it is being played TODAY. Just typing that makes me want to hit something, but I think my landlord frowns upon indoor tackling sleds.
As a side note, the girls in the picture above will be in Hawaii tonight for COLLEGE FOOTBALL.
For the real goods, make sure to listen to yesterday’s show – news, emails/voicemails, and the first game previews of 2010!
• Most importantly, here’s a TV schedule of this week’s games. And here are the lines, for entertainment purposes only, of those games. You’ll note Oregon, the defending Pac-10 champions, can’t be seen unless you have a specific cable company with a specific channel in scattered northwest cities. Huzzah!
• Big Twen divisions were announced yesterday. The story’s not too exciting, as everyone looked at the breakdown and collectively said, “Eh, looks about right to me.”
• Here are details of the deals BYU has already made since going independent. ***Spoiler Alert*** It’s ESPN and Notre Dame.
• USC AD Pat Haden said he would consider independence in “today’s environment.” College Football: The best on-field sport, the worst off. Thinking about pitching that to Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, along with “College Football: The Cure for the Common Sport.”
• Marvin Austin, UNC’s star defensive tackle, has been suspended indefinitely for violating team rules. Surely, this will affect UNC’s defensive line performance against LSU on Saturday. For a more scientific look at UNC’s ongoing compliance issues, please refer to this.
• There’s no rhyme or reason to the NCAA‘s decisions. Andy Staples continues to break this 104 year old story, as it pertains to Jeremiah Masoli.
• The Playoff PAC, an organization trying to take down the BCS through a political action committee, produced a new video. There aren’t any song girls, but it’s still good.
• The Wall Street Journal chimes in with some helpful college football number nerdery. (via EDSBS)
Today’s video of the day is college football. You know what, screw it, I am buying that tackling sled. FOOTBALL IS TODAY.
Enjoy your Thursday goosebumpage.
