Saturday Morning Review and Early Morning Live Thread 9/28/13

Good morning and I hope everyone has had a good week. I'll just recap what's been on RMN this week and you can consider this your Saturday Morning Live Thread

Joe Murphy

First off, a question. Does this signal to you that the SEC is going to a 9 game schedule:

Alabama cancels home-and-home series with Michigan State (updated) |

"Michigan State graciously granted our request to cancel the games previously scheduled for the 2016 and 2017 seasons," Alabama athletics director Bill Battle wrote in a university statement. "We made the request due to the uncertainty of the conference football schedule in those years. We are very appreciative of Michigan State’s willingness to grant that request."

What others are saying:

Arkansas State got drilled by Memphis last weekend and showed us that it isn't nearly as good as many of us thought it was. Missouri looks to continue its winning formula of scoring lots of points on out-of-conference teams without a pulse. Thanks to the scheduling wizards in the Missouri athletic department, the Tigers play their last non-SEC team this week -- meaning that they won't get a break from the SEC schedule for the rest of the season. Enjoy your win this weekend, Tigers. They get harder from here on in.

Also, can anyone recognize him?
