LATER THAN USUAL BECAUSE WE LEFT OUR LAPTOP IN ATLANTA

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

MAKING THE SAME MISTAKES OVER AND OVER AGAIN. We mean, it's not technically a garbage truck, but one of those haulers they use to tote demolished buildings and slag out of construction sites, and yes sometimes trash, and FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW, WILL. THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW.

When did we start doing everything horribly. When. YES WE'RE IN GAINESVILLE AND THEY'RE STILL PLAYING DISHWALLA AND MATCHBOX 20 HERE.

SOMETIMES IT'S BETTER TO PRETEND. Punt Brothers believes that about football, and yes, if we were Jane and a Michigan fan we'd believe that, too. Look! College basketball! We don't know what that is, really, but it's here!

ACROSTICAL PRAISES PAC-12 FOR RIGHT AND WRONG REASONS. The opening's all about the ultimate chaos roadmap this season, a map that comes down to Notre Dame beating Florida State this weekend, but the fun part is writing about how the Pac-12 has been the most entertaining football in the country for seven weeks running.

LOOK IT'S SOMEONE GEORGIANS LOVE AND ALSO OUR TYPICALLY HORRIBLE GOVERNOR. Todd Gurley has become a political football in Georgia, with gubernatorial candidates each proclaiming their desire to Free Todd Gurley from the stupid prison of NCAA rules. Neither will do anything about it, ever.

BOBBY BOWDEN KNOWS SOME VERY UNIQUE GRAMMAR SCHOOL KIDS. Bobby Bowden on Jameis Winston and the crab leg obsessed children of his neighborhood grammar school.

LEGEND. A fan who tackled a Stanford player for Wazzu back in the Seventies might have been one of the better defensive players to ever take the field for the Cougars.

ETC: Kate Nolan gets drunk!
