FRANK BEAMER: STILL JAMMING ON THE CORNER BY THE NORTH AVE MARTA STATION

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

HE'S GREAT AT RUNNING THE OPTION (BETWEEN FUNK AND RAW SEXUALITY)

There is this from last night's 17-10 win by Virginia Tech over Georgia Tech: that Georgia Tech is "terrible" at running the option per insider Paul Johnson, who also happens to be their coach; that Virginia Tech appears to have as menacing a defensive line as exists in the nation; and that Frank Beamer is unafraid to dance his ass off in a moment of celebration, even when his players are signalling for him to stop.

HEY, WE'RE REALLY AND TRULY DONE WITH THAT. With EA settling their portion of the O'Bannon case--and backing out of the college football business entirely, for the moment--the court battle that remains will focus on TV money. In the meantime, BRING BACK MUTANT LEAGUE.

ALABAMA NEEDS A HUG. We think that's what Nick Saban is saying here, which seems weird because hugging Nick Saban would probably turn one of you to a musty, fine cloud of ash. (You.)

VANDERBILT ALSO NEEDS A HUG. Or a blazing halftime speech from the coach, and a very tidy fit by a senior lineman.

OLE MISS. The endorsement of your team as a possible upset candidate for Alabama is forever a tense marriage between potential, and the cold facts surrounding how Ole Miss has really worked as a football team so far in 2013. (I.e. a lot of sideways passing, something that tends not to work all that well against Alabama.) But, um...maybe Alabama will be distracted? <----always a sign you are struggling to justify an upset

OLD MISS. The endorsement of your school by a celebrity is forever a tense marriage between your school, and the negligent and forever distracted celebrity in question.

ETC: Pretty accurate depiction of how we start every day. It has finally happened, and there is a song to accompany the arrival of the savior. Tommy Wiseau seems like the epitome of the artist who wears purple scrunchies.
