Today’s Chorus is brought to you by NYU graduate and Parks and Rec person Aubrey Plaza. So very glad to have her back on my Thursdays. ***** • The Arizona Republic is following BCS money. This could get derrrrrty. • CBS’s Bruce Feldman has deserved praise for LSU CB Tyrann Mathieu, who’s now officially “The Honey Badger.” • Toledo wants its (SHADY) loss to Syracuse reversed. Seems futile. • Texas A&M has officially joined the SEC. • Minnesota coach Jerry Kill suffered another seizure and readmitted himself to the hospital. Time will be taken to hopefully get all straightened out. . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by former Boy Meets World actress Danielle Fishel. She apparently hosted some show thereafter. The important thing to remember here is that we went to the same high school. And our high school is terrible at football. ***** • Oregon All-American CB/PR Cliff Harris has been suspended indefinitely in the wake of his driving citation and other outstanding (in a bad way) fines. He’ll miss, at the very least, the LSU game. Say what you will, but Chip Kelly is now probably the Anti-Tressel of the moment. • ESPN’s Chris Low ranks SEC wide . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel. In the back of my mind, you’re getting the 24-style silent clock countdown treatment. Good night, sweet prince (of alleged corruption). ***** Ahem… • Ohio State coach Jim Tressel has officially coached his last game for the Buckeyes after resigning amid pressure from those around him at the university. Interim head coach Luke Fickell keeps the tag, but now with more games tacked on. • Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor is the subject of an investigation by both Ohio State and the NCAA regarding his ever-expanding car . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Harvard alum Rivers Cuomo. I’ve never said this until now, but a pretty significant part of me wants to destroy his sweater. Whew, that felt right. ***** • Pac-12 TV rights hit the open market today. Here’s a rundown of the favorites to land conference media rights. I’m positive by the time all is said and done, I’ll be watching Oregon games on Oprah‘s third regional network in standard definition. • Noted shady person Willie Lyles allegedly asked Texas A&M $80,000 to deliver Patrick Peterson. Peterson and his father were outraged and denied . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by former Bucknell student Kevin Bacon. He seems like an intense guy — no way is he happy about the 1-11 season the Bison suffered through, BUT they did lose to Lafayette, so naturally, I’m fine with it. ***** • Arizona kicker Alex Zendejas had two extra points blocked by Arizona State DE James Brooks — one to win it in regulation and one to tie it in double OT. The Wildcats lost and Mike Stoops‘s head is still yet to be recovered. • Chip Brown of OrangeBloods.com is saying Texas OC Greg Davis . . .

August Countdown: Utah Utes (23)

August 5, 2009

Throughout August, we will be counting down the top 25 teams (as listed here) going into the 2009 season. Today we bring it on down to Utahville, where we’ll take a look at the only program to go undefeated twice in the BCS era. Another fun fact:, Utah is the only state in the union to have their nickname centered around the production and storage of honey. I love honey.                First Impressions A case could be made that this has been the Offseason of Utah. You could also consider Lane Kiffin and Tennessee, but . . .
