Unlike the government (or the Steelers), the 15-7-0 cannot be shut down

5. With the government shutdown looming, I think it’s important that we label Keenan Reynolds “essential personnel”.

Tough loss for Navy after Reynolds got hurt. He says he’ll be good for Air Force Saturday morning. He had better be.

Because I have nothing else nice to say about this one, I’ll give you guys a sneak peek of “The Greatest Song Of All Time This Week” instead.

6. In my mind, I like to hope that Pat Haden actually brought a door to the airport with him to make sure he hit Lane Kiffin in the ass with it on his way out at USC.

For what it’s worth, I REALLY appreciated Kiffin honoring former SNL star Bill Hader in his final game.

Not only did Arizona State beat USC, they did it in AWESOME new helmets.

I know people like to wildly speculate about potential coaching hires…I’ll assume Steve Sarkesian and Chris Peterson’s names have come up a TON in the last 24 hours; as have David Shaw’s and Bill O’Brien’s. But I think there’s only one slam dunk choice for the Trojans moving forward. Yep.

Joani Harbaugh Crean. It’s worked for everyone else.

7. Upon returning to his office in Los Angeles, Pat Haden couldn’t have been surprised to see Greg Schiano’s resume sitting on his desk.

Mike Glennon mania!

And our “zero” from outside the world of football…

What a captivating final day of Major League Baseball’s regular season…if only someone had seen it.

Why did MLB mess with having the final day fall mid-week? They had the greatest night in their sport’s history when they went mid-week?

Also, I need a Chris Davis bobblehead. I can trade you sexual favors or John Fogerty tickets.
