Ty and Dan walk through a handful of rivalries, from Miami-Florida State to Florida-Georgia, and make their locks for college football’s Week 10.

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by my friend Ana Ivanovic, who starts a magical Wimbledon run this week. Also of note, “friend” now means person I will never know and sometimes gawk at from afar. ***** • Nevada WR Brandon Wimberly was shot in the abdomen, most likely ending his football career. Awful. • Minnesota RB DeLeon Eskridge, the Gophers’ leading rusher last year, will transfer from the program to be closer to a family situation. • Former Miami RB Storm Johnson will officially transfer to UCF, where he’ll continue his football career and then inevitably become a local . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by former State University of New York Maritime College student Geraldo Rivera. I don’t know how a place can be a university and a college, but it does make sense that crazy ol’ Geraldo went there. ***** • Due to state budgetary restrictions, Nevada is close to losing Division I status. It’s wrong to blame the Boise State kicker right? Right? • South Carolina QB Stephen Garcia is now officially suspended indefinitely for misbehaving at a “SEC-mandated event.” The rumor is he showed up drunk. Hm, that’ll do it. • ESPN’s David Ubben reviews . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Boston College alum Amy Poehler. She’ll probably never come down from the high associated with this specific achievement. ***** • The lawyer who tipped off Ohio State coach Jim Tressel to the activities and associations of five of his players has been identified. He seems, well, interesting. • Florida practices are closed to everyone. Intrigue! Or just inconvenience and undeserved self-importance after a bad year. • Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson can get sassy. • Boise State hosted the Oklahoma coaching staff. “Hey remember when we came back with the hook and… yeah.” . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Top Chef host (new season starts tonight) and Clark University alumnus Padma Lakshmi. Clark doesn’t have a football program, but damnit, just look at her. ***** • Jon Gruden will apparently meet with Miami AD Kirby Hocutt today. I’m still not sure this happens and isn’t just a leverage ploy for an NFL job, but hey, I’m only ALWAYS right*. *Except when I’m wrong. • Donald Trump sent Miami president Donna Shalala another note recommending Mike Leach. Also, Mike Leach is recommending Mike Leach. • Washington State coach Paul Wulff isn’t sure if . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by legendary horse trainer and Arizona graduate (Major: Race Track Industry!) Bob Baffert, though I have no idea if he follows college football and has a horse in the race when it comes to Friday’s game at Oregon. You see what I did there? Comedy. ***** • Nebraska coach Bo Pelini apologized for his behavior and confirmed Taylor Martinez’s continued presence on the Huskers. He reiterated, “NBgHJ RN3GL JDaF K77GN&#*@3&* %&#$@(adf*#@!!” • An Indiana prosecutor is investigating a sexual assault claim against a Notre Dame football player by a woman who died in early . . .
