Gift That Keeps on Giving
The unpredictable college football season rolls on, as does College GameDay, which headed out west this week for the UCLA-Arizona game in Tucson and although it was an early bird show, that didn't stop Wildcat fans from coming out in droves, bringing with them a slew of fantastic signs. Did you hear the iconic Washington State flag, a stable of GameDay coverage for more than a decade, was lost in transit this week? Luckily, plenty of other Wazzu flags made it:
Across the country in Ann Arbor, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh hooked Derek Jeter up with a sweet custom Wolverines jersey when the Yankees legend visited The Big House for their game against BYU. And we can't have a weekend of college football without some serious trolling. First, check out this ruthless job from a Lubbock (home of Texas Tech) convenience store as it used Keystone Light to mock TCU. Then, former Florida QB Danny Wuerffel trolled Tennessee before the Gators-Vols game.
College football players are known to own some rather exotic or unconventional pets and there's no exception at D-III Texas Lutheran, where three players have chickens frolicking around their place.
Horrific new out of New Jersey today: Evan Murray, quarterback at Warren Hills Regional High School, died after suffering an injury during their game on Friday night. He took a hit in the first half, walked off the field under his own power before collapsing around halftime. He then got back to his feet and was taken to a local hospital by ambulance before passing away. You can read the full story from NJ.com here. We're sending a ton of prayers and thoughts to Murray, his family, teammates and friends in New Jersey. Here is the gofundme page to help raise money for his family.

Can Only Go Up From Here
The College GameDay crew was asked to pick the Kansas-Rutgers game but spent the entire time asking which program was in worse shape, if KU was still playing football and who the head coach of KU even is. As a Kansas alum, it's another painful reminder of how far it has fallen since the 2008 Orange Bowl, but one day—one day—David Beaty (yes, that's its coach's name) will return this program to contention. Just wait.
