Never change, coach.
5. GREAT: Money.
In its first fiscal year with Missouri and Texas A&M, the Southeastern Conference raised its total revenue by more than $41 million to $314.5 million, according to the conference's latest federal tax return.
And now to the more emotionally stable portion of your daily links post...
6. Spring game
7. The Bowtie
8. Hey look, another ranked opponent
9. No. 22 feels low...
...though I can't disagree with any specific name above Pinkel here.
