    and that's why leach will never coach anywhere better than a 4th-tier program. the guy doesn't care one bit about anything remotely reminiscent of quality defense. he's a decent offensive mind who shits sound bites. nothing more.

    Not sure what it is about Pac12 after dark, but it seems like half of the games or more come down to the final play of the game.

    They had good reason to celebrate, because had they lost that game they would've kissed their playoff chances goodbye.

    Kansas stuns Texas Tech in most Les Miles win EVER


    Douglas Coleman III: Ya see, what had happened was…

    And just who is this Douglas Coleman III? Nothing more than the out-of-the-blue protagonist in one of the wildest directing jobs of head coach-turned-actor-turned head coach Les Miles‘ career.

    SCENE: Tied at 34-all with Texas Tech, at home in Lawrence and with just 13 seconds left to play, Kansas lined up for what would be a game-winning 40-yard field-goal attempt that was BLOCKED by TT’s Nick McCann.

    For the visitors, this was a positive development. Just leave the football, which had advanced beyond the line of scrimmage after the block, alone. Don’t touch it. Move on to overtime.

    SCENE: Instead of not touching it and moving on to overtime, our protagonist, Coleman III, decided to go off-script and pick up the football and advance it.

    For the visitors, this was not a positive development.

    SCENE: Going even further off-script, Coleman III attempted a backward lateral to a teammate who was not only not a part of the cast but wasn’t actually on the set.

    For the visitors, this was not a positive development.

    SCENE: Coleman III’s ill-advised ad-libbing was recovered by one of the protagonist’s antagonists, Kevin Feder, with just two seconds left in the Big 12 feature. Now in possession at the Tech 14-yard line, Kansas’ Liam Jones was true from 32 yards out as time expired for a 37-34 win.


    NARRATOR: For the home team in general and the Mad Hatter specifically, it was one of the most gloriously absurd plot twists in Miles’ directorial career.

    And… scene.

    An Ohio State-LSU national title game? A football fan can dream

    There was a time, believe it or not, when college football was not a duopoly, a kingdom ruled by Alabama and Clemson, with 128 other teams left to pick up the scraps. It's ancient history, really. It was way back in 2014, when the playoff was in its infancy, a mere six "Fast and Furious" movies had been made and Baby Shark was just a glint in Left Shark's eye. It was a time when "Clemsoning" was a pejorative and Nick Saban didn't have quite enough bling to make a Geico commercial. We were all so young and naive.

    Forgive us, though, if we still have a hint of that naïveté after Saturday's games. Sure, we know how this season will probably end, with Clemson (big winners over Boston College on Saturday) and Alabama (dominant even without Tua Tagovailoa against Arkansas) playing for another championship. But Saturday also left us room to dream of a different future, of escaping this "Groundhog Day" and emerging into a brave new world where the playoff actually includes four teams capable of winning it all and the straight line pointing to another Bama-Clemson showdown suddenly veers in a new direction.


    Just look at how Ohio State dominated Wisconsin's once unyielding defense Saturday. Rain battered the field, but it did nothing to slow down the Buckeyes' offense. Justin Fields looked like a poised veteran. The Buckeyes' running game that was stagnant last season was ferocious, led by J.K. Dobbins' 163 yards and two scores. There's a case to be made that no player impacts a game as much as Ohio State's Chase Young, who had four sacks and forced two fumbles, as the Buckeyes held Jonathan Taylor to only 52 yards, one of the worst games of his brilliant career. Surely this Ohio State team is good enough to challenge for a title, right?

    Or dig into LSU's latest big win. The Tigers have already knocked off three top-10 teams, and even if Texas no longer looks like a showstopper, and Florida and Auburn won't present the same challenge as the Crimson Tide, the sheer volume of big wins has to mean something, right? Joe Burrow tossed his 30th touchdown of the season Saturday. The only other SEC quarterback to do that through eight games was Kentucky's Tim Couch in 1997, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. Perhaps there was room for worry about that LSU defense, which hadn't always looked sharp this season. No matter. The DBs at DBU utterly confounded Bo Nix on Saturday. The freshman QB was just 4-of-19 with a pick on throws of five yards or more. Surely this LSU team has the firepower to end Alabama's SEC supremacy, right?

    And just think of the storylines. Ed Orgeron, having proved the world wrong, now on the brink of bringing his beloved LSU to the promised land. Ryan Day, in his first year replacing Urban Meyer, becoming the first coach not named Saban or Swinney to win it all since ... Urban Meyer. Oh, and then there's Burrow, the guy who wasn't good enough for the Buckeyes, potentially getting a chance to prove his old team wrong. That might make for a slightly more interesting few weeks of coverage than a shot-for-shot remake of Swinney vs. Saban.
