Lunchtime links: Thursday edition (9/17)

Remember, about the LIVE chat I'm going to be doing again today. Another link is in the post above. Without further adieu, here are some links today ...
  • Casazza also talks with Auburn QB Chris Todd for this article, and Todd busts out his line about being a threat as receiver in the Wildcat offense. He's got that one in the vault for anyone who asks him, I think.
  • ESPN.com's Chris Low is back with his weekly SEC picks. He's got Auburn 31, West Virginia 27:
  • "You can feel the excitement on the Plains right now, but Auburn coach Gene Chizik is doing his best to keep everything in perspective. That said, a win over the Mountaineers probably means the Tigers go into the month of October unbeaten. Their running game has been what’s separated them in the first two games and will again be the difference Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Ben Tate, Onterio McCalebb and Co. roll it up for another 300-yard night on the ground."
  • Mel Kiper Jr. lists matchups to watch every week between players who are probably going to be in the draft. (It's an ESPN Insider article, so I'll summarize this part). He lists West Virginia RT Selvish Capers vs. Auburn DE Antonio Coleman as something to watch, although I wonder how often they'll even match up against each other. If I recall correctly, Coleman doens't move around on the line too much, usually matching up against the left tackle.
  • Big East commissioner John Marinatto tells Jon Solomon of the Birmingham News that he thinks the BCS won't exist in five years and that college football will return to the old system of bowl games. That doesn't sound like a step forward.
  • Cleveland Plain-Dealer AP voter Doug Lesmerises explains his unique voting system here. Good to see somebody stand behind their ballot instead of making excuses.
  • And lastly, there are several articles over at Deadspin.com yesterday by the crew formerly known as the bloggers who ran FireJoeMorgan.com, one of the most biting critiques of bad sports journalism ever. Unfortunately, they've stopped doing that blog, making their brief reunion on Deadspin very enjoyable for loyal readers like myself. I only hope that dak, Junior and Ken Tremendous make more than occasional reappearances in the future.
