Welcome to the Fallout - Saturday edition.

Texas (A&M) Two Step.

He also suggests that it Texas who is ducking restarting the annual rivalry game between the two schools. (The Dallas Morning News)



Left in the dust?

This state of independence shall be.

Backfield in Motion.

Fit to be tiebroken.

History

I Was There.
Former Georgia Tech head coach Pepper Rodgers discusses coaching the Yellow Jackets against Notre Dame in the 1975 "Rudy" game. Needless to say, Rodgers says the play in which Rudy Ruettiger sacked Ga. Tech's quarterback wasn't quite as it was depicted in the movies. (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

Insanity

Doggoneit!
Rodger Sherman ranks all 26 dogs who currently serve as mascots for college teams. Texas A&M's Reveille VIII is ranked first (1a, as all dogs are ranked 1a-1z for some bizarre reason). Georgia's Uga IX is ranked last, which was apparently done just to poke Georgia fans in the eye. (SB*Nation)
