Worst thing is that it doesnt seem like his sons are deviating much from his path. Hopefully its like the Bill/Rocky Wirtz relationship where he abided by his father's outdated wishes until he passed and then completely overhauled the organization. Or it can be an Al Davis/Mark Davis situation wher...

Brady Quinn has me blocked. I have absolutely no idea why because he's my favorite college football player of all time and I've never communicated with him or said anything remotely negative about him on Twitter. If anyone else famous has me blocked I'm unaware of it.

Considering the circumstances that have come together to backdoor Bama into the BCS title game/playoff this decade, I'm not gonna believe they're out until they announce the field.

They SHOULD be out barring help, but we know how the committee loves their eye test.
