OK so apparently Jim Delany is tired of waiting. Not satisfied with poaching Rutgers and Maryland, the Big 10 supposedly is taking in Georgia Tech.

That’s what’s burning up the bandwith today, but who knows. Everybody is saying that somebody connected with Ohio State says it is a done deal. They point out that Georgia Tech is in a large media market (Atlanta) and is an excellent academic institution (AAU member). It has an solid athletic program and is a better addition than Rutgers or Maryland.

Optimizing Texas Longhorns Football: Is Mack Brown the right man for the job?

Welp – here we are.

I’ve spent much of this season advocating a ‘take things at face value’ approach, and focusing more on the on-field, X-and-O happenings than speculation about what kind of high-level changes may or may not go down at season’s end. On November 30th in the Year of Our Lord 2012, though, the story of this season has been pretty much written. We may well see a dramatic road upset on Saturday that puts some wind beneath Mack’s wings, but our contest with K-State is far more likely to be a study in Derp-ology under center than it is a stirring victory from an 11-point dog. With an 8-4 regular season looming and a bowl matchup/outcome that’s likely to land somewhere between ho and hum, I find I’m much more strongly driven to take a look at the big picture and get prescriptive about the shot I’d try to call in the here and now if I were a Big Cigar.

The Spurs coach Greg Popovich gave NBA Commissioner David Stern and poor TNT fits last night when he decided to send his best veteran players home to rest rather than play the game against the Miami Heat.

It’s no secret that Collin Klein needs a game-changer. A gimmick. The kind of ridiculous bullshit that the media retrograde ejaculates over in order to justify their idiotic Heisman vote.

This Saturday, Collin Klein must play All-Time QB.

For Kansas State. For Texas. For Collin Klein. For America.
