A lot of strange things have happened since August. Texas AM, after making some hints over the summer, left the Big 12 for the SEC. Over the last 24 hours, the university has dismissed its football coach and its athletic director; Bill Byrne followed Mike Sherman out the door this afternoon. Pittsburgh and Syracuse are heading to the A.C.C., West Virginia to the Big 12, eventually. The Big East will soon feature teams from Texas, if not San Diego. Two SEC teams two that met in the regular season will meet for the national title.
A quarterback from Baylor might win the Heisman Trophy. Michigan beat Ohio State. Boise State lost at home. The two best teams in the Sun Belt might be Arkansas State and Louisiana-Lafayette.
