Tuesday links (10/6)

It's a busy day for Auburn in terms of interviews, but that doesn't mean we won't take you around the country with a bunch of links this Tuesday. And don't forget to follow the blog on Twitter.

On to the links ...
  • 3. Ben Tate, Auburn: Gus Malzahn’s offense has given new life to Tate, who’s been the best downhill, power runner in the league this season. Even though he’s sharing time with freshman Onterio McCalebb, Tate has rushed for 540 yards and is averaging 5.6 yards per carry.
  • 5. Onterio McCalebb, Auburn: He’s been Mr. Versatility for the Tigers and is third in the league in all-purpose yards. The 165-pound freshman is an explosive breakaway threat and gives Auburn a lot of speed on the perimeter. He’s averaging 6.2 yards per carry and ha also been a weapon in the return game.
  • Oops. The SEC admitted the official was wrong to flag Georgia's A.J. Green for excessive celebration after scoring a go-ahead touchdown against LSU, writes David Hale of the Macon Telegraph. That probably doesn't do much for Bulldogs fans right now. This probably doesn't help either: the officials have no intention of changing the rule.
  • Tony Barnhart of the Atlanta Journal Constitution called the penalty the "single worst officiating mistake I have seen in my three decades of covering the sport."
  • When you're cruising past opponents as easily as Alabama is, you have to create problems to overcome. QB Greg McElroy isn't happy with the team's slow start, writes Michael Casagrande of the Decatur Daily.
  • Charlie Weis wonders why his Notre Dame Fighting Irish aren't ranked after beating up on the bottom half of the Big Ten and squeaking by at home against a team that went 0-12 last year. Let's go through the schedule, shall we? The Irish beat Nevada (1-3) and lost to Michigan (vastly overrated) before beating Michigan State (2-3), Purdue (1-4) and Washington (2-3). Yup, I'd have them unranked too I think.
