* Rutgers is in the Big Ten.

* USC, everybody.

* "Bring on the Creampuffs: most ranked teams take the field on Saturday in uninspiring matches against the likes of Citadel, Florida Atlantic, Lamar, Northwestern State, and McNeese State. To clarify: McNeese State hails from Louisiana, not McNeese. Further: Murray State is in Kentucky, not Murray. Finally: Northwestern State is in Louisiana, not Northwestern. As we all know, Northwestern is in Illinois, which is a state, which Northwestern is not."

* Illinois sucks.

* Northwestern sucks.

* Preview: Northwestern vs. the best college football team in Illinois.

* College football has no parity mechanism like the NFL draft.
