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. You can't help but ask who else has been affected at this point, and to what lengths organized football must go to attempt to prevent this. And if it's worth it for them to do so.

With Stanford's upset over Notre Dame and Ohio State's big win over rival Michigan in The Game, the playoff field has narrowed to the existing top four plus Michigan State, Ohio State, Stanford, and potentially North Carolina.
