The Fallout: Missouri and Texas Tech fall, Nick Saban, Johnny Manziel, and more.

Guess who's back, back again? JFF. Tell a friend.

Injured shoulder? What injured shoulder?

Stylin' & profilin'?
ESPN's Austin ward describes Ohio State's 63 points scored on Penn State as "style points." I'd describe it more as a case of you can take Buckeye HC Urban Meyer out of Florida, but you can't take the Florida out of Urban Meyer.
