THE CURIOUS INDEX SAYS LANDRY'S TD CATCH HAS AGED BEAUTIFULLY

Kevin C. Cox

THERE ARE MANY FOOTBALL PLAYERS IN THE SEC AND ALL ARE MORE PHYSICALLY GIFTED THAN YOU EVER WERE OR ARE.

Landry's TD catch is probably the one play you don't remember with enough awe from 2013: at full speed, flying backwards in the air, and twisting at full extension with little more than a few fingerpads on the ball at first contact, the kind of shit Sammo Hung used to rig up with wires in Hong Kong action sequences. The absurdity just gets worse when you watch it in slow-motion. (via R/CFB)

THE SPREAD IS STILL DEAD, GARY DANIELSON. The generation of quarterbacks to come and the changing profile of the NFL quarterback's role are all just hair and nails growing on the corpse, we're sure. Can you break your toe on a deceased Palomino? WATCH GARY DANIELSON AND LEARN THE ANSWERS.

WAITING FOR RINALDI'S PIANO CAN COST YOU A STORY. Or something like that, since the smaller, lighter media entity ended up with the story while the compromised, elephantine one dawdled, lost and ultimately lost out twice on the Manti Te'o saga. Outlets who will type anything you want to hear are still thriving off the whole thing, so it's not totally a zero-sum game here.

SPEAKING OF: We'll have to text Mike and see what's up here, because that indeed is not your best angle, Mr. Leach.

HATE IS ETERNAL AND PORTABLE. You could just cheer Denard Robinson on in his efforts to change positions after a year of the Borges Procedure, or no wait you're Ohio State and Michigan, and hate is forever.

VIRGINIA TECH, STAND UP. A leader in a crowded field of overacheivers, you Hokies. In further VT news, familiarize yourself with the history of their offensive coordinators, or why Ricky Bustle is a name that forever warms the heart of Hokies fans like so much brown coping fluid poured down the mainpipe.

ETC. Believe.
