Well, here's a shocker. Mel Kiper is being let go by ESPN because they couldn't agree on language in his contract. I assume that Sporting News, SI.com, et al. now go after him, but isn't a large part of Kiper's value his being on set during the draft broadcast?
An upset-fueled Week 4 led to new expectations for surprising teams like Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Texas A&M, but poor performances at LSU and Notre Dame led to early-season firings.
