Kirk Ferentz gets the catlab treatment in a refreshing change of pace from our typical Swimsuit offerings. NSFW if your supervisor might be offended at the sight of the Iowa skipper’s face grafted onto a shirtless body in a bubble bath.
• Hey, thanks, catlab. For the night terrors that will surely stretch into the weekend. What is it about an upside-down Lil’ Red that’s so starkly upsetting?
• Blue pig sooie. Former Arkansas coaches think the widely publicized expiration date on John L. Smith’s 2012 contract made last year’s Razorbacks quit-happy. It’s not the first time last season’s squad has been accused of giving up by a party within the program, but Knile Davis takes exception to the characterization:
Quit?This is my take on it!!! twitter.com/BoobieKnile_Er…

• Northern Illinois 31, Toledo 24. We do so love what’s become an annual late-season scramble for division supremacy between the Huskies and Rockets, and last night’s contest did not disappoint. The Huskies, who have won 10 games for the third straight year, will represent the MAC West in Detroit for the third consecutive season, and will face either Kent State or Bowling Green once they get there. Quarterback Jordan Lynch threw for 407 yards (a career best) and rushed for 162 more. No, by himself. No, seriously. Lynch was sent here by the football gods to make sure we all properly appreciate MACtion for the weeknight blessing it is. Message received. [BOX | RECAP]
• Ball State 52, Ohio 27. The Bobcats trailed by four points heading into halftime and were nearly doubled up by the end of the game, thanks mostly to a 21-point fourth-quarter scoring barrage from the Cardinals. Ball State scored three touchdowns in less than nine minutes on a Horactio Banks run, a Kelly Page pass and a Jahwan Edwards run. Page replaced starter Keith Wenning, who left the game in the second quarter with an Achilles injury. Also, this happened. [BOX | RECAP]
• Duck hunts. Not to be outdone by the LSU-Alabama trailer that dropped earlier this week, Oregon has released its own hype video in honor of the Ducks’ upcoming trip to USC. Among its highlights: The Duck learning to play Oregon Trail and doing the team’s laundry under threat of dysentery from a school employee, the Duck searching for a watch he does not wear, a covert laundry detergent handoff from gold-medal decathalete and Oregon grad Ashton Eaton and the implication that the Duck possesses a commercial driver’s license, which wouldn’t actually surprise anyone. Our one quibble is spelled out neatly by YouTube commenter “ChocolateJesus2K:
Wash uniforms? Oregon doesn’t wear the same thing twice.
• Good morning to America’s Heartland, with love from catlab. Team catlab, your one-stop destination for all catlab needs and services.
• I got those suspended-while-my-team-plays-Boise-State blues. Dave Christensen just sings it out, man.
• On the Mike Leach Twitter thing. Brian Floyd traces the feelingsball origins of folks getting het up over Wazzu players being banned from Twitter, and Tom Fornelli dispenses sense:
If you don’t trust your players on Twitter then you probably have a pretty good understanding of the decisions college kids make.

• And the seventh seal was opened, and it said “but but cash money.” The seventh access bowl may not happen, for basically the same reasons the have-not teams it would have welcomed into the postseason are have-not teams in the first place.
• Big East football: Pay attention. No, really. Stop making that face!
• Catlab. For the moments of your lives. Frank Solich and Rufus star in a Wednesday dance break that could only have come from catlab.
• Devon Walker update. And now for something completely serious: a hello from Walker himself. ”Thank you everyone for your prayers and well-wishes. This has been so hard on my family and friends. I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am for your generosity and support. I especially want to thank everyone who sent cards and letters. I read each and every one. They give me the inspiration to keep on pushing. Your words of encouragement are helping me so much. Thank you also to those who organize, attend and contribute in countless ways to the many fundraisers being held in my honor. I am truly blessed. Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers. — Love You All, Devon Walker #18″
• Make eye contact with Nick Saban in the safety and comfort of your home. teamcatlab takes a spin with college football’s wee emperor.
• Grudging BCS update. We want a dead period for all of this. Conference realignment, playoff creation, all of it. Let it consume the other eight months of the year, and let us talk football and only football right now. Into this line of fire steps the AP’s Ralph Russo to keep the rest of us posted on the growth of the new postseason system.
• Maize & Bones. In one of the more macabre stories to come out of the Michigan football community this week, the estate sale apparently being thrown by Bo Schembechler’s son, Matt, has been cut short by an injunction filed by the groundskeeper (see the Twitter timeline of Michigan Daily’s Stephen Nesbitt for details). Also, there’s a box of femurs just hanging out, like bones are wont to do at an estate sale? Or something?
