Running Backs don’t have to be “five-tool” ball carriers to succeed in the NFL — especially if a couple of tools compensate for a lack of others. Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon might be this kind of prospect.

Some plays are like Rorschach inkblots because there’s no definitive answer to why they unfold the way they do. If you were a coach, which issue with this play involving Michigan star Devin Funchess do you think has the highest impact on its outcome? You vote.

Uh-oh, somebody introduced the SBNation people to the Vox people. Mix politics and college football and you know this all ends with Jonathan Chait complaining about Ohio State again.
Actually, there are some pretty cool maps in here: where players come from, why they all end up in the SEC, and why they all wouldn't have ended up in the SEC 50 years ago since, you know, a lot of them are African-American.

"Last team with the ball wins" is a cliche, but sometimes cliches are the best way to get across the central narrative of an important game. If you like great quarterback play, you have to watch the NFC Championship Game.
