Boy, that CBA vote sure set the dominoes in motion. Cornerback Terence Newman: six years, $50.2 million, $22.5 million guaranteed. Running back Marion Barber: seven years, $45 million, $16 million guaranteed. There was some debate among the Outsiders about the wisdom of investing so much money in a running back, but Barber is young (he turns 25 next month), he has never carried more than 204 times in a season, and the Cowboys have Felix Jones to ensure that Barber is never struck by the Curse of 370.

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.
