Has Will Muschamp Been Fired Yet?

He hasn't

Ok....I'll check back later.

PS: Here's Muschamp at his hiring press conference at Florida:

Apparently being the head coach at UF is the only job in America that ages you worse in four years than the Presidency.

Ohio State's Band Can't Stop Being Awesome

You can pretty much set your watch by it at this point. Death, taxes, Texas A&M making their opponent's running back look like Gale Sayers and Ohio State's marching band spitting hot fire all over the internet with their halftime show.

Yup, it's officially the weekend:

Well, you know, it was the weekend when this happened. You're catching what I'm throwing out there.

HAVE A DAY, LenDale White. Have. A. Day.

DeadspinFormer NFL running back and USC alum LenDale White was having a good time at the Trojans' game against Colorado, until he wasn't. White says he was kicked out of the Coliseum after Saturday's game; he also had words for athletic director Pat Haden and the program.

Sounds pretty fishy to me. If only we had a real time narrative from THEREAL_LENDALE...

Here's the video of White being tossed (sorry there's no sound):

UPDATE: Nevermind, it wasn't LenDale White...it was just this dude who ate LenDale White:

Our mistake.

VOTD: The ND-FSU Pass Interference Play...As Told By Internet Commenters

Sometimes we find a video that we can't wait to add our own spin to and blog about.

And sometimes we find a video that's so perfect we just let the internet do it's thing and post it for you.

This is the second kind of video.

Great to see everybody rise up as one like that. As Michael Scott would say, "Sometimes what brings the kids together is hating the lunch lady."

Can't say I agree with the top half, but right on with the bottom half, "UF Fan." Right on.

DC's Top 10 Recap: Week 8


2. FLORIDA STATE (Beat Notre Dame 31-27): For seemingly the tenth time in their current 23-game winning streak the Seminoles played with fire, but this time they were actually burned. Corey Robinson was standing alone in the end zone with his third TD catch of the night secured and the Fighting Irish were ready to celebrate after knocking off the defending national champions with 13 seconds left...then the latest flag since the Miami-Ohio State national title game fluttered to the turf and ruined the party in South Bend (and everywhere else in the U.S. outside Tallahassee). The call (and let's be clear...it was the right call) shouldn't detract from the fact that this was the best college football game of the year between two teams who belong in the playoff, and definitely shouldn't detract from Jameis Winston. FSU's embattled QB rose to the challenge once again, shaking off a tough first half by completing 15 of 16 passes for 181 yards and a TD after the break. He finished with 313 yards and 3 TDs on a night when the Noles ground game only mustered 50 yards, running his record to 20-0 as a starter.

3. OLE MISS (Beat Tennessee 34-3): The Vols led this one 3-0 with five minutes left in the first half, then the Ole Miss offense decided to join the party their defense had been throwing for an hour. The Rebels forced four turnovers and held Tennessee to ZERO rushing yards in the win, and Bo Wallace had another extremely efficient outing, throwing for 199 yards and 2 TDs.

4. BAYLOR (Lost to West Virginia, 41-27): Refs and league officials who truly know the NCAA rule book are fond of telling fans you "can call a penalty on every play." Big 12 officials took that sentiment as a challenge in Morgantown, penalizing the Bears and Mountaineers 32 times for 363 yards and nearly giving Fox's Mike Pereira a stroke on the air. The Bears were outgained 456 to 318 and were held under 100 yards rushing by the WVU defense in the loss.

5. NOTRE DAME (Lost to Florida State, 31-27): I can't talk about it any more, I can't read about it any more, I can't write about it any more, so let's just move on.

Also, Notre Dame broke Lou Holtz:

Service Academy Round-Up: Week 8

KENT STATE 39, ARMY 17: Army's road woes continued in Kent as the Black Knights surrendered 467 yards and the game's final 20 points to the Golden Flashes. Colin Reardon threw for 360 yards and 3 TDs in the win as Kent State outscored Army 33-7 down the stretch. Army returns to the friendly confines of Michie Stadium on November 1 with the Commander In Chief's Trophy on the line against Air Force.

AIR FORCE 35, NEW MEXICO 31: Once again, Air Force salvaged a dismal day for the Academies, outrushing New Mexico 428 to 400 and escaping with a come from behind win over the Lobos. Kale Pearson threw for 159 yards and a TD and added 66 yards and a TD on the ground. The Falcons also got 136 yards and 3 TDs from their fullback combo of Shayne Davern and D.J. Johnson.

MAINE MARITIME 13, COAST GUARD 7: The Bears fell to 2-2 in conference play despite holding the nation's top rushing attack to only 42 yards in the second half, falling victim to five turnovers, including two second half interceptions on the red zone. Coast Guard's Derek Victory threw for 213 yards and a TD, but the Bears couldn't overcome the picks, dropped passes or penalties in Castine.

SPRINGFIELD 48, MERCHANT MARINE 21: The Mariners had no answer for Pride QB Jonathan Marrero, who paced Springfield to 571 yards of offense and handed Kings Point their fourth straight loss. Springfield racked up an insane 406 yards of offense in the first half despite holding the ball for only 6:16 and took a 35-14 lead into the break. The Pride outrushed USMMA's option attack 440 to 300.

NAVY: Did Not Play.
