Ed Orgeron doesn’t like Ole Miss He shouldn’t

Earlier this week, LSU head coach Ed Orgeron spoke to ESPN’s Chris Low about facing Ole Miss this weekend. The Rebels are Orgeron’s former team, and Saturday is the first time O will go to Oxford as an opposing head coach. That caused a level of outrage among some Ole Miss fans. The quote was touted as a fantastic piece of shade from one SEC program to another direct from a head coach. What’s weird is, Orgeron said basically the same thing last year before LSU hosted the Rebels. But no one seemed to react like they have this week. Ole Miss — currently eyebrows-deep in an NCAA investigation loaded with Level I allegations and 3-3 with an interim head coach because Hugh Freeze was caught contacting

Notre Dame Football USC Trojans QA with Conquest Chronicles

Not sure if anyone is aware, so I just wanted to officially announce: the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team will be playing the USC Trojans football team in a football game this football weekend. Since most of you probably don’t know much about this little football program from southern California, I figured I’d reach out to Conquest Chronicles, SB Nation’s experts of the USC variety, and ask them some questions about their team, this weekend’s game, and other stuff. Brendan Kearney and Matthew Lowry were gracious interviewees and gave me some solid answers, so be sure to read below to get their perspective on USC’s unexpected offensive struggles, who ND should be afraid of, what the best names are on the USC side of things, and much, much more.

QA With Hammer And Rails On Purdue Football

Rutgers and Purdue meet for the first time ever this Saturday at High Point Solutions Stadium at noon in what is the Homecoming game. While Rutgers (2-4; 1-2) is looking to build off their first Big Ten victory of the "Ash Era", Purdue (3-3; 1-2) enters this game after a hard fought, one score loss at #5 Wisconsin. The Boilermakers are much improved this season under first year head coach Jeff Brohm. In an effort to find out more about Purdue football ahead of this weekend's game, I was fortunate to speak with Travis Miller, the founder and managing editor for SB Nation's Purdue site, Hammer And Rails. Let's kick it off! The Jeff Brohm era is off to a good start. What is the mood like with the

UCF’s Scott Frost shows some wheels playing scout team QB

UCF’s defense worked against a unique opposing quarterback this week in preparation for Saturday’s game against Navy. Knights second-year head coach Scott Frost, a former Nebraska quarterback from the 1990s, played on his scout team’s offense for his defense to help it prepare for the Midshipmen’s offense, led by quarterback Zach Abey. Here he is in practice simulating Navy’s system: Not too shabby for a 42-year-old, right? Frost explained his reasoning for putting himself at quarterback in practice earlier this week. “We’re going to use quite a few different guys to try to get our guys ready,” Frost said via the Associated Press. “Anything you can do. It’s hard to simulate their looks, especially

Cobs Of the Week Nebraska Washington State Clempson wooo And Auburn

I’ve tried to avoid nominating the Huskers for the weekly Cob, but because of a lack of suitable nominations not involving the Huskers, and the no-good, horrible, terrible, really bad OSU game on Saturday, they are ... Nominee 1: Nebraska. Rehashing this seems pointless and painful, so I’ll just leave it there. Y’all are gonna vote for them anyway. Nominee 2: Auburn. The Tigers blew a 20 point lead before losing 27-23 to Coach O’s LSU Tigers. To make it even better, the Auburn mascot dressed up like Troy Trojan to troll LSU. Maybe topping that was that it was the largest comeback against a SEC opponent in Tiger Stadium since 1949! Nominee 3: Clempson. The Tigers’ (seems like I’m typing that a
