Bill Curry goes to plaid; more Designated Reads

Auburn Tigers, Bill Curry, Derek Dooley, Designated Read, Duke Blue Devils, ESPN, Georgia State Panthers, Injuries, Kansas Jayhawks, Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns, LSU Tigers, Mississippi State Bulldogs, NCAA Investigations, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Penn State Nittany Lions, Player Suspensions, Recruiting, Singing Or Rapping Football People, Steve Sarkisian, USC Trojans, UTSA Roadrunners, Washington Huskies

• Georgia State has a night game this weekend. The Panthers play UTSA at 6 p.m. ET, a fact you will not forget, because they went and made this video to remind you. Please change your mind about retirement, Bill Curry. Please?

• Injury report story hour. Duke defensive end Justin Foxx had hand surgery on Tuesday and will be out indefinitely.

Teams that will not be featured in injury report story hour: USC has de-banned Scott Wolf from practice, but remember yesterday when we said barring reporters from reporting on player injuries sounded like a move characteristic of a team much worse at football than USC? Good morning, Washington! Local sportswriters, your thoughts?

• Roster blotter. LSU releases the names of four academic casualties, including one, linebacker Tahj Jones, projected to see starting time … the Ragin’ Cajuns lose Justin Hamilton for the Oklahoma State game … starting Nittany Lions receiver Shawney Kersey has left the Penn State football team but reportedly remains in school … starting Nebraska defensive tackle Chase Rome, whose name is a simple sentence, has left the Huskers.

• Misc. Behold the blooper reel from that John Clayton SportsCenter promo … Yahoo(!) Sports fills in some gaps on the Memphis-Mississippi State story … we can see this Tennessee-Florida postgame scenario playing out with terrible clarity and not a little dramatic irony … Mississippi State players claim to have gleaned Auburn offensive signals from Week 1 game film … and now, your Decided Schematic Advantage of the Day.

The mascot's novelty sunglasses appear comically oversize.
