Huh. I didn't even know Matt Leinart had been suspended for the Rose Bowl. The NCAA said Leinart's actions were seen as "unintentional and inadvertent," while Deadspin has a different take:
"After reporting the incident, USC petitioned the NCAA for reinstatement, and once they realized how much money they could personally make off Leinart's appearance, they let him come back. (But not before letting Leinart know they could have kept him out, if they wanted to, just because they can.)"

A look at fourth-down decision making in 2014 highlights Sean Payton, Marc Trestman, and... wait, this can't be right... Jim Caldwell? Plus: Chip Kelly may be less aggressive than you think he is.
