It was only one night but Buffalo looks like it could play spoiler in the MAC East. The Bulls came to play on Wednesday and got a big win over Akron. If UB can do that come MAC Tournament time then watch out.

NCAA Coaching (Something Hokey going on at Michigan?)

Brief Comment: These two show the divide between Op-Ed guys (aka Bloggers) and institution media. Two *totally* different takes on Hoke at Michigan:

Brady Hoke fits the bill as a top candidate for U-M job | detnews.com | The Detroit News
It's that last point which explains why Hoke, 52, is considered prime-time material as athletic director Dave Brandon hunts for a coach to replace the fired Rich Rodriguez.

Some people think he is a great college football coach and nothing to worry about. I think such ideas are preposterous. They are the cranial productions of blind fools who do not understand college football and offer no evidence to support their views.

Dan Wetzel's Death to the BCS Playoff Plan Could Be a Winner | By Allen Barra - WSJ.com
If you care about football, you're going to be watching the No. 1-ranked Auburn Tigers play the No. 2-ranked Oregon Ducks for the national championship Monday. It should be a great match-up: The Tigers are led by quarterback Cam Newton, the overwhelming winner of this year's Heisman Trophy, while the Ducks are paced by star running back LaMichael James. If the game doesn't produce at least 80 points, some ticket holders may ask for their money back. Not to temper your enjoyment, but while you're watching, consider what might have been. Fans could have gorged on as many as 14 more games just as good as Auburn and Oregon, and all of them more significant than the plethora of postseason bowls—if college football had a playoff system.
