Schecter to discuss SI's findings of academic fraud, payments to players, drug abuse and the implications for college football.

Dear Polo, why not go all-out and just give the ball kids an actual horse?

Some help: Is Lou Holtz trending for something specific or just usual manufactured nonsense w/ Mark May that insults intelligent viewers?

SI PHOTO

SI.com celebrates NFL coaches who were once players with a gallery that includes this photo of Saints head coach Sean Payton(page 42), who was a replacement quarterback for the Bears during the 1987 NFL players strike.

It will be the Broncos vs. the Giants at MetLife Stadium on Sunday ... but the world will be thinking of it as Peyton vs. Eli. As the Manning brothers face off for the third time in their NFL careers, do you think Eli has a shot at beating his older bro for the first time? That and more will be discussed on SI.com's weekly live NFL talk show, Pro Football Now, presented by John Hancock and hosted by Maggie Gray and former Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer. Watch Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. EST for NFL news and opinions from SI writers and players. SI.com/profootballnow
