Sippin' On Purple feels we didn't do enough to acknowledge that Northwestern played well. I guess I didn't see it the same way. When your offense rolls up 560 total yards and runs 100 plays and you only win by nine (with seven of those points on a late TD where the D may have let Trumpy walk into the end zone to get the ball back). Congrats, I guess?
I mean, if you aren't calling him "embattled" just yet ... what's a college football head coach gotta do to be "characterized by conflict or controversy?" Here's an idea: blame the players! Spaz makes an appearance in this week's SB Nation.com Hot Seat Watch 2012, listed alongside Idaho's Robb Akey and Central Michigan's Dan Enos and earning the category "The Good News Is, Someone Will Probably Hire You As A Defensive Coordinator (Or A Quarterbacks Coach) In 2013."
Bring On The Tigers. KPL is ready for Clemson.
"Clemson is going to be ready for us and we are definitely going to be ready for Clemson. Now we have to focus on them and make sure everything is right. We have to know all our checks, all our calls and make sure we are watching enough film to know exactly what they are doing. It is going to be a good game, I promise you that."
Army-Boston College Nearing Sellout. If you are planning on heading up to West Point for the October 6 Boston College-Army game, better get your tickets soon. Parking passes are $15 ($20 on gameday). Can you imagine if every BC fan could drive to Eagles home games?
Hi, I'm Here for the Ass Beating. College Crosse takes a look at Notre Dame's move to the ACC from a (duh) lacrosse perspective, asking whether the Irish's inclusion in the league will be a determining factor as to whether another ACC program -- Boston College? N.C. State? Florida State? -- elevates to varsity status. You know we are down.

Pic of the Day. And you thought the BC football program was the only one with attendance issues. Tsk tsk.
