See that cat up there? That's our cat, Leo. Leo is a dumb cat. I can say that because Leo doesn't understand human and it won't hurt his self esteem. Even if he did understand human, he still wouldn't care as long as you scratched his chin and let him out when he wants out, even if it is -16 and he went out three minutes ago to check whether or not there is still tons of snow on the ground and whether it's still so cold his paws freeze on the concrete.

B1G Rising: Getting Out of the Basketball Cellar - Off Tackle Empire
How does a team go from worst to... slightly above worst? Get a new coach, maybe snag a new arena, and claim a pelt. The rise of this year's cellar dwellers and the fall of Purdue.
It's still far more "possibility" than "likelihood," but in a conversation with the Austin American-Statesman outlining his vision for the Longhorn program, athletic director Steve Patterson said he wanted to explore playing Texas football games in neutral venues. And one of the cities he'd be interested in exploring, he said, is Mexico City.

AN EDSBS SPECIAL POLICY BRIEF
Not sure if you've all been following what happened in Atlanta, but Spencer Hall lives down there and lets us know why the city was brought to a standstill after only a little bit of snow. It apparently was the perfect storm.
I've bugged you about Bo Pelini before, and at the end of the regular season you were of the opinion that Pelini should probably go (after his sideline show against Iowa). But if you look at these numbers, Pelini has placed himself among a small group of some very well-known and successful coaches. I and many other Huskers fans are looking forward to what he does this season and beyond. Do you think AD Shawn Eichorst was wrong in keeping him on board? Or do Pelini's numbers warrant his staying? -- Michael Schultz, Curtis, Neb.
While I salute the writer for the immense research he undertook, his piece also shows the folly of historical numbers. So Pelini is one of only eight coaches to win nine games in each of his first five seasons? That's admirable, but it omits the fact that Pelini coached 13, 14, 14, 13 and 14 games, respectively, in those years. By comparison, Barry Switzer, who the author cites as another member of that club, did so in two 11- and three 12-game campaigns. Pelini supporters love to bring up the fact that the revered Tom Osborne got off to a similar win-loss start in his eventual 25-year tenure... blah blah blah.
I'd like to congratulate CN community member Mike for getting an answer from Stewart Mandel. Also, congratulations for referencing our hometown, I'm sure Curtis was happy to get a mention from a national writer.
The Pelini stuff? Oh, you can discuss it, but the Bo vs Go stuff is pretty old. Whatever we want, he's still the coach.
