Florida State did a dumb thing and used Martin Luther King, Jr. wearing a Nike glove in their recruiting efforts (LINK).
Richard Deitsch talked to Tony Romo, who was the biggest winner of conference championship weekend, and who earned the gig of announcing the Super Bowl for CBS (LINK).
Hit the jump for some other good stuff.
I can’t figure out whether I like Baker Mayfield or not (or whether I simply don’t care), but this is still a pretty funny video with the forgotten Manning brother:
“Yeah, anything is better than Hue… I mean you.” 😶

MLive talks about Karan Higdon and Khari Willis trying to improve their draft stock at the Senior Bowl (LINK).
One team goes home because they didn’t win a coin toss.
Seems like a great overtime system.

I’ve seen a lot of tweets like the one above, but my thoughts are: Part of playing football is playing defense. I go back to the idea of player safety, and it seems hypocritical to me to ask for more player safety but then ask for players to play more snaps in highly contested games. One drive, and the game was over. College games that go to 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 overtimes don’t indicate to me that it’s good for the players. It’s the same reason I’m not a fan of expanding the playoffs to 8 or 12 or 16 teams.
