Former RB commit Damien Harris: Harris had 8 carries for 86 yards in Alabama’s 54-16 SEC Championship Game win over Florida.

Former head coach Brady Hoke: Hoke awaits his fate after Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich was fired. It’s highly unlikely that the Ducks’ new coach will retain Hoke, but nothing has been decided yet.

Former FB/LB commit David Reese II: Reese made 1 tackle and returned a block extra point for a 2-point conversion in Florida’s 54-16 loss to Alabama.

 

Former LB Kaleb Ringer: Ringer made 4 tackles in Georgia State’s 37-12 loss to Idaho. Georgia State finishes 3-9. Ringer made 41 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, and 1 pass breakup on the season.

Former OL/DL Tom Strobel: Strobel saved his best for (almost) last, making 7 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, and 1 pass breakup in Ohio’s hard-fought loss to Western Michigan in the MAC Championship Game, 29-23. That’s a career-best game for Strobel, who has one chance to top it when Ohio plays Troy on December 23.

MLive: Jabrill Peppers among 5 finalists for Heisman Trophy

The time for Heisman finalists has come, and Jabrill Peppers is among them (LINK). It’s a fitting end to his season – and perhaps his college career – because he’s among the top few football players in the nation. The thing that hurts his chances of winning is that he’s not great at any one thing. He’s not great in coverage, he doesn’t get a lot of sacks, he doesn’t get a lot of turnovers, he hasn’t scored a multitude of touchdowns on special teams, etc. He’s just good at lots of different things, and you can throw him out there at lots of different positions where he can execute at a fairly high level. I think Louisville QB Lamar Jackson will win – mostly because of his running talent – but Peppers supporters have an argument.

There are some good looking blondes and then a brunette doing some yoga beyond the jump.
