TWEETS THAT MATTER
My take: This is classic! No doubt, indifference from some players was a reason for the highly disappointing season.
Don't have a big problem with the new playoff name. Personally, I would have gone with "SEC Member-Guest" or "The Grandson Of Them All."—

My take: This is funny.
Urban Meyer and Steve Spurrier paired for Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge charity golf tourney in Greensboro, Ga.—

My take: There is a joke in there somewhere.
Denard said at RB he can take a hit, "at receiver… make cornerbacks look bad" and "in open space, I can’t be tackled one on one."—

My take: Let’s add “modesty” to Denard Robinson’s bust as we prepare for his Canton enshrinement.
I do think Bill O'Brien is getting way too much respect/pub for 1 season. Yes it was a nightmare scenario but he interited a good roster.—
Michael Spath (@Spath_Wolverine) April 23, 2013
My take: He may be getting a bit too much. Still, when Penn State was 0-2, I thought it was sunk. To go 8-2 the rest of the way was amazing.
Something to mull over: Assuming Penn State fields a serviceable quarterback this year, when was the last time the offense was this deep?—
Ben Jones (@Ben_Jones88) April 24, 2013
My take: Maybe 2005?
Why are people dogging on "College football playoffs" as a postseason tourney name? NCAA tourament works just fine for hoops.—
Dave Heller (@dave_heller) April 23, 2013
My take: True. But why make a big deal out of the unveiling?
"We decided to call the playoff what it is – the College Football Playoff." – Bill Hancock, Exec. Dir. of the College Football Playoff.—
Jeff Rabjohns (@JeffRabjohns) April 24, 2013
My take: Zzzzzzzzzz.
My take: Lord help us all.
Improbable stat entering NFL draft: Since 2008, Illinois has more 1st-rounders (5) than any Big Ten team; 9 in first 2 rounds last 3 years.—

My take: This only adds to the frustration of Illinois fans, I’m sure.
