Defending that Heisman just got a little more difficult. Mark Ingram already had a tough road to hoe in that regard, what with Trent Richardson breathing down his neck, the Alabama passing game likely improving (and therefore eating up larger chunks of yardage) and the inexperienced Alabama defense likely giving up longer drives here and there. Now he will be missing at least one game to boot. Ingram underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee this morning and will miss, at the very least, the free opportunity for yardage known as San Jose State.

Fresno State and (maybe) Nevada to the Mountain West. What next?

Take this for precisely what it is worth (it is a random weekend link from the New York Post, after all, albeit one that uses real quotes from Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany), but when Big Ten media days kick up next week, there is a very good chance that Big Ten expansion will once again be the topic at hand. Jim Delany is still apparently yearning for entry into the northeastern corridor of the country.

We sat down with the Notre Dame blog Clashmore Mike to answer a few questions about our projections for the Fighting Irish and other teams around the nation.

FO is exploring the idea of a college football game charting project, concentrating at first on some subset of the six BCS conferences. We have a couple of NFL franchises interested in possibly partnering on the project, which would help us to pay people for charting. Participants will also get use of the data for their blogs and personal research. If you may be interested, please e-mail us at info-at-footballoutsiders.com with "College Charting" as the subject. List where you live, what team and/or conference you tend to follow, and how much time per week you would be able to contribute to the project.

The great Iowa Hawkeyes blog, Black Heart Gold Pants, took a couple of looks at CTE (and why it is so unbelievably frightening) today. (Here is the second one.) It really is fascinating, and not in a good way, to think about what it could mean if a wide receiver, who only played college/pro football for about seven years, had CTE at 26.

There will be four teams in the inaugural College Football Playoff at the end of the season. What common characteristics will distinguish these teams above all others?
