Well, here we go.  Let the playoff arguments continue. Can a Marcus Freeman move to succeed Brian Kelly influence the committee if all the other pieces fall into place? Or will it backfire? 


The man with a widespread reputation for verbosity, Herbie, is out west Friday night with Chris Fowler for the Pac 12 Championship.

This weekend you’ll have some of the best and a few who aren’t  that great.
