If you're looking for something to read to pass the time until 2:30 - we have you covered from the mother ship:

Andy Hutchins on what to watch
Bud Elliott on betting picks for entertainment purposes only. I don't gamble on what young men will do on any given Saturday and honestly I don't know why you would either.
Bill Connelly on - Kansas State vs West Virginia - Florida vs South Carolina - Texas A&M vs LSU

And last, but certainly not least, a must-read story about a walk-on at Florida that includes this gem (in stark contrast to Nebraska):

My dad remembers an annoying speech from Meyer about how the more talented players deserved better treatment. When it came time for my mom to introduce herself, she didn’t hold back. At that time, the Gators held a record of 11-1, and they had just killed Western Carolina, 62-0, at home. Alex still hadn’t played. With the end of the season was drawing near, my mom wanted to get a word in before it was too late.

"My son Alex Harrell loves the team, and he would so much like to play," she told Meyer. "What would it take for him to play one down?"

Urban Meyer looked right through her and said, "I guess he would have to have talent."

My mother has hated Urban Meyer ever since.
