— For whatever reason, yours truly is not so dead set against the Yankees
— A cheerful prayer for Big Red W Nationalism
— Dave Roberts should be dead man biting his finger nails … but is anything going to change in Dodgertown? What to make of passing over Maeda? And thanks for telegraphing to the world your late inning, extended curtain call for Kershaw.

— Lions cause some real trouble in Iowa City.
— Would somebody please teach Illinois how to punt?
— Frank circles Notre Dame’s trip into Ann Arbor as a key test for Mich, but ChabDog see them paying dearly for their pervasive attention deficit disorder when they visit Happy Valley.
— It’s nice to have a guest on like Jamie Williams, who has the right to talk about Super Bowl rings because he earned one.
— The Davenport, IA, Nebraska University, Niner connection
— Running through those with a trace of Roger Craig’s distinctive high kicking action … we review the short list and consider the magnitude of his existing HoF snub

— And at the other end of the spectrum .. we have Jerry Glanville (any tickets for Elvis?)
— We enter the House of Pain, courtesy of NFL Films
— Comparing the deliveries of Moon, Montana and Young from a recipient’s perspective
— Frank takes us back to ultra cool Joe’s “Hey there’s John Candy” sighting before leading his team 93 yards to burn the Bengals in SB XVI

— Playing in the NFL and going to night school for your masters is no simple feat
— Some of the themes underpinning the blueprint for “Any Given Sunday” (see how the QB position would change/what do you get when you combine Warren and Randall and evaluating the effect of head trauma before the onset of the CTE scare)
— Why the marriage between TV and Football is so big (a gridiron game was playing at the 1939 World’s Fair)
