Gamedayr - The UCF Knights are changing the game when it comes to in-stadium experience. On Monday, the school announced its plans for a new entertainment deck, The East Side Club. The Florida themed ESC will feature an open-air sundeck, connecting to a covered lounge area. This 10,000-square-foot area will have extended hours both pre- and post-game. The ESC will be the social space to meet up with friends and clients alike on game day. Members will also have the opportunity to host private events at the ESC, which will be one of the most unique settings on campus, in Orlando and in all of college sports.
Smart Decision: Adding a massive party deck and beach club to your stadium.
Dumb Decision: Doing it after Lindsey Duke leaves.
Reallllllllllllyyyyyyy feels like you guys missed an opportunity here.

Who'd you think the first Highlight Monday of the 2015 offseason was going to be?
Look Cardale Jones, I'm really happy fo you, and I'mma let you keep your National Championship ring, but Zeke Elliott had one of the greatest weeks of football of ALL TIME. Urban Meyer could have won a title with ME at quarterback, playing lefty, blindfolded as long as this dude was in the backfield.
Alabama and Oregon fans: you might want to sit this one out...you know...like your defenses did.

The season's been over for a week and a half, so who's ready for some corrupt recruiting stories?!?!?
I thought so.
Texas fans, meet four-star defensive back Tim Irvin, who committed to Charlie Strong and the Longhorns at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl:
Then Timmy went to Auburn and tweeted this picture:
So who's story do we believe now? The Texas fan who realized this whole thing is basically a six-page Hardy Boys novel?
Or Timmy, who's aunt apparently took the Patriots -7 against the Colts, bet her mortgage, and gave all her winnings to her favorite nephew in the middle of a recruiting visit right before he coincidentally changed schools? But hey, you've gotta go big for that "gradation."
My head says Texas Fan With Common Sense, but my heart says come on...Auburn wouldn't do that, would they?

While we were busy hailing Ohio State and Coast Guard for their National Championship victories last week, North Dakota State was quietly winning their fourth consecutive FCS title. The Bison topped conference foe Illinois State on a come from behind drive in the final minute, capping one of the best college football games of the 2014 season and an amazing career for their seniors, who will leave Fargo with more career national championships (4) than career losses (3).
Better late than never, here's your Highlight Monday (and really, "better late than never" is probably Fargo's city motto...I bet they still have ESP Discmans playing Ma$e out there):
Congrats, Bison. See you at the annual College Gameday visit...

Just wondering. If any readers in Ohio don't mind swinging by and checking on them, just so we know the whole town's not a bombed out wasteland and an NHL arena, that would be great...
Enjoy it Ohio State. You earned it.
Well, technically, these guys earned it...
...but their party looked just as fun.

(WE WANT BAMA!)
Hear us out...
That's a heck of a way to honor Jimmy Crotty:
