THE CHAD GOT PAID. So it turns out Clemson REALLY likes Chad Morris.
$1.2 million for an assistant means a.) Clemson is taking its commitment to Morris' offensive system and career very seriously, and b.) ALL PLATINUM FRONTS WITH THE SPARKLES IN 'EM SON. It also means you can measure fear quantitatively in units of dollars, and that the Tigers are $1.2 million worth of afraid of just having Dabo around to run things.

Cotton Bowl is in JerrahWorld, which is run by Jerry Jones, and that means...HOOKERS! YOU'RE ALL GETTING HOOKERS! We're sorry: escorts. #ArcherTaughtUs
EVERYONE IS INTERVIEWING EVERYWHERE. In the adolescent makeout party department, we do know the three coaches in play for every job on the planet right now are Gus Malzahn, Larry Fedora, and Kevin Sumlin.

PROGRAMMING NOTE: Luke and Run Home Jack are in charge today while we do meetings for the college football side at SBNation. Behave!
