Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Minka Kelly. Gentlemen, start your engines. ***** • Arrest warrants for second degree battery (felony) have been issued for QB Jordan Jefferson and LB Josh Johns. Not good. • Eight Miami players are currently ineligible, including QB Jacory Harris. Time to grease some NCAA wheels, Hurricane boosters. • LSU WR Russell Shepard has been suspended indefinitely for a “compliance” issue surrounding the NCAA‘s investigation of Will Lyles. • SMU says it’s ready for some Big 12 football. Cute. • Pac-12 players talk about ASU LB Vontaze Burfict. They’re all wisely very careful with their . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Bryan Cranston, LA Valley College attendee and star of Breaking Bad, which I’m about to start (and probably be insufferable about). ***** • ESPN’s Pat Forde asks: “Why can’t I write a column about pay-for-play?” • CBS’s Brett McMurphy goes to Provo and profiles BYU and their independence. His hair appears to be short enough to be welcomed by the locals. • Yahoo!!!!!!’s Dr Saturday projects CUSA, which is a lot easier to write than “Conference USA.” Consider that your introduction to “CUSA.” • Miami coach Al Golden is getting a lot of . . .

Happy New Years! ***** • North Carolina absorbed an admirable performance from Tennessee and Vol QB Tyler Bray, took advantage of a last-second clock reversal, and beat the Vols in two overtimes to win the Music City Bowl. So now we know that North Carolina is probably better than Tennessee. Yes! • Washington cared and played well. Nebraska not so much. 19-7 Huskies. • A throwaway touchdown . . .

Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Community’s Gillian Jacobs. She attended Juilliard, which has no football team. But if they did, I’m sure they’d be admirably in-step and still probably better than Arizona. ***** • Maryland, in coach Ralph Friedgen‘s last game as the Terps’ coach, demolished ECU in the Military Bowl. Maryland RB Da’Rel Scott may still be running. And star Maryland WR Torrey Smith is running to the NFL Draft. • Baylor essentially played a home game in the Texas Bowl … and got ZOOK’d by Illinois 38-14. And the only thing I can think about is . . .
