Today’s Chorus is brought to you by James Brown, which makes today’s simple list of links far funkier than it deserves to be.

• CBS’s Bruce Feldman puts a tidy bow on the weekend’s action.

Ditto for SI.com’s Stewart Mandel. And his goes into quadruple overtime.

Take a look at the AP ballot of CBS’s Brett McMurphy. Do it.

Now that we’ve reached November, SB Nation’s Bill Connelly makes some second impressions on his early season thoughts.

• ESPN‘s bloggers have conference race updates, power rankings, BCS reactions, bowl projections, and review what they learned. Whew.

Watch Oregon RB/WR De’Anthony Thomas juke Washington State on a loop. You know you wanna.

The Wiz has Week 9 screengrabs. It gets weird.

• Yahoo!!!!!!!’s Dr Saturday gets messy with the polls, goes inside numbers, and doles out superlatives.
