A LOOK AT HOW WE'RE SPENDING THESE EXTRA 24 HOURS

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

SYRACUSE COACH DINO BABERS: We'll treat it like any other work day - look at what we did wrong in the last practice, see what we want to work on in the next one. There's a lot to do as a new head coach here, so I'm glad for any extra time I can get.

ARIZONA COACH RICH RODRIGUEZ, WHILE DRESSED LIKE A ROCKFORD PEACH: Just shooting a little movie to get fans excited for next season. We like to have fun when we can. It keeps the team loose and lets them know we're not just a bunch of heartless tough guys.

UNNAMED MISSISSIPPI STATE FAN: Working in the garage on my android, BLuE ChiP, a robotic five star high school wide receiver who has terrible grades and will only play if you put hundred dollar bills into his deposit port. We're gonna give the world PROOF Ole Miss is cheating like hell when they recruit this bad boy.

RALPHIE THE BUFFALO: I'll be volunteering on behalf of one of the candidates in Tuesday's Democratic caucuses here in Colorado, though I'd rather not say which o(stampedes passerby who happened to be talking about Hilary Swank)

UNNAMED OLE MISS FAN: Working in the garage on making a counterfeit hundred convincing enough that it'll fool BLuE ChiP.

ED ORGERON, PREPARING TO JUMP A DIRTBIKE OVER A PIT FULL OF VERY ANGRY MOUNTAIN LIONS: LESSUH GOFUHA RAHD WIDDA DEBBIL

ARIZONA QB ANU SOLOMON, WHILE DRESSED LIKE MADONNA IN EVITA: Apparently I misunderstood the costume request.

UNNAMED FSU FAN: I'll be on Twitter, pointing out to Florida fans that today is February 29th and 29 is 27 plus 2. My daughter's got a dance recital I'm missing, but she understands that you have to prioritize what's important.

WAKE FOREST'S DEMON DEACON: Sitting alone in a dark room and contemplating whether a leap year means I'm one day closer to death or one day further away. Or maybe nothing's changed at all. That's usually the answer.

THE STANFORD BAND: We're working on a routine where we spell out Clay Helton's email password and credit card number.

ARIZONA DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR MARCEL YATES: Look, I get Rich likes doing this, but he's had the linebackers in that batting cage for a week now. I tried to ask him how this was going to get them ready for football season. He just yelled at me about how we had to do this to lift our nation's spirits while our boys fought the Germans. I'm worried about him.

UNNAMED FLORIDA FAN: Taking the kids to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Trying not to get into a fight with a stranger over how we're only in the position because Muschamp didn't recruit any decent Seekers. Failing, and driving home in silence.

NOTRE DAME'S TOUCHDOWN JESUS: On the phone with Time Warner yet again. If they don't fix my connection so I can watch Baylor or Clemson or anything other than just Notre Dame games, I'll cancel my account. I can live with just having Hulu and HBO GO, jerks.

RUTGERS COACH CHRIS ASH: Personally, I'm not sure what our basketball team's done to deserve its own special day.

LSU COACH LES MILES: Today's actually March 12th, and your rent is way overdue. This is my greatest trick play ever.

A GATHERING OF WISCONSIN FANS: (jumping repeatedly to House of Pain until the Earth goes spinning off its orbit and crashes into Mars) sorry
