In July 1979, Paul Wulff's mother disappeared. Paul and his family always believed his father had killed her, but no body was ever found. Then, in October, the CFB coach got a call from a detective. "I found your mom." Story from @BonaguraESPN and me:

"Jake knows he's got to get back up because we need him." Enjoyed this from @BonaguraESPN on @FresnoStateFB's Jake Haener, who played through pain to lift his team past UCLA, fulfilling a childhood dream.

Since 2018, five times the Irish have been an underdog away from home. Notre Dame is 0-5 in those games and lost four by at least 17 points. Going back to a win at Arizona State in 2013, Notre Dame has lost 11 straight pre-bowl games away from home as an underdog…

How USC crashed a ‘friggin’ Ferrari’ of talent, and what it means for the next head coach. @AntonioCMorales & I spoke to a dozen former Trojan staffers; HS coaches and other sources for this story and we got some remarkable intel.

Ryan Day says C.J. Stroud has taken the last few days off, and will be used in an "emergency capacity" this Saturday. Expect to see Kyle McCord and Jack Miller this week.

The 12-team plan, which was unveiled to garner support without input from most of the power leagues, serves the SEC and Notre Dame, primarily. The G5 leagues are giddy to be included, but you can do that with an 8-team model, too.

An 8-team playoff would nationalize the sport, the top goal of expansion, and there would be room for deserving at-large teams that could actually win it.

A point an insider made to me today is the myth of at-large spots, regarding an 8-team playoff. Technically there are 4 at-large now but it’s weighted toward conference champions. Only 4 of 28 CFP have been at-large. An 8-teamer (with auto-bids) would guarantee more at-larges.

I'm told a vote on expansion will NOT take place next week.

#WesternMichigan defensive coordinator Lou Esposito will serve as acting head coach this week for the San Jose State game, as Tim Lester remains away from the team after testing positive for COVID-19.

A total stadium rebuild would require Northwestern to play at least one season, and possibly two, elsewhere. Soldier Field a likely option and possibly more Wrigley Field games later in those seasons.
