MIKE STOOPS PLEASE STEP INTO THE MOON DOOR

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

BOB STOOPS CRIMSON AND CREAM WEDDING CONTINUES

The Summer of Bob was brief; it started with the seed of a wintry win over Alabama, and then blossomed into the heat of so many pithy snaps in the media. Bob was raging with the fire-light of a man whose sun had risen twice, and in that Indian Summer he ran as fast as legs could until the fall came, and with it the inevitabilities of all men: the shortening days, the last smear of androgel in the tub, and things like losing 48-14 to Baylor. The rest would be the winters of an old king, dazed by life's infernal winds and resorting to the final comforts of beheading his subordinates, and perhaps watching some CSI.

(P.S. There's a brother involved! This is totally some sad King Lear-in-Oklahoma shit.)

STARKVILLE: SO NICE HE WENT THERE TWICE. Manny Diaz turned his comeback tour at Louisiana Tech into a second swing through Starkville, as the 2010 defensive coordinator for the Bulldogs will be the 2015 defensive coordinator for the Mississippi State Bulldogs.

POINT #2 IS BASICALLY OLE MISS'S ENTIRE SEASON. The SEC West was one big floating balloon waiting to be popped, but in Ole Miss's case that second point of getting weaker as the season went on is so, so true. (And walking face-first into TCU's full wave of holy anger in the Peach Bowl helped a lot, too.)

THE NOTORIOUS T.O.B. IS OUT. He retired quietly to focus on his real first love of moving that dope.

YOUR TRAINER, HE MIGHT NOT KNOW WHAT HE IS DOING. Vice has the details of Armond Armstead's lawsuit against USC for overadminstering Toradol, and you know what, maybe there's something wrong with a sport where you have to take Toradol to keep your job and make it onto the field?

ETC: Who boondoggles like the state of Alabama well Alex the answer is NO ONE. If you're not familiar with the badassery of Adrian Carton de Wiart, well it's time to fix that. Give Charlie a credential or he will write exactly what going to your stadium is actually like, Jerry.
