The Fallout: Pat Fitzgerald, Brian Schottenheimer, and... Star Wars?

Welcome to the Fallout - Monday edition. 

Non-Societal's Child. 
Northwestern head coach Pat Fitzgerald describes himself as "non-societal" in an interview with The Chicago Tribune's Teddy Greenstein. "Non-societal" being Fitzgerald's euphemism for "stubborn." That could explain the Wildcats' slide in the past two seasons.

Life of Brian.
Brett Weisband profiles newly-hired Georgia offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. (Saturday Down South)

I Will Not Go Quietly.
Bart Doan suggests that those who think Michigan State will take a step back with Ohio State's winning both the Big Ten and College Football Playoff titles, and Michigan's hire of Jim Harbaugh as its new head coach might be somewhat mistaken. (The Student Section)

Is this a bad idea or a bad idea?
Chad Scott looks at how the Big Ten's proposal that college football and men's basketball sit should be required to sit out their freshman year could effect the SEC. (SportsDay Now!)

Movement of the People.
Heath Cline looks at the recent exodus of players from the South Carolina football program, and wonders if there should be some concern about the number of players transferring to other schools. (SportsDay Now!)


Rage against the (Marketing) Machine.
Rodger Sherman goes on a tirade against collegiate-themed Star Wars t-shirts, referring to it as a "lazy" attempt to combine "two popular things on one thing and hoping people buy it anyway because they're together now." (SB*Nation)
