No need to call in Don King. Here is all you need: Jim Harbaugh vs. Urban Meyer. Done. I just hope Meyer and Harbaugh stick around for 10 more years. Please, football gods.

Big Ten links: Loaded Big Ten East, Lou Henson health update & more

How good could the Big Ten East be in 2015? Pretty good. Mark Podolski of the News-Herald in Ohio thinks the division may be the best in the nation. The SEC West was college football’s standard bearer. No more. The bottom line is the SEC is in a transition period. After the conference won seven straight BCS national championships — that last in 2012 — it’s been two years since it took home a national crown. Also, the SEC West was 2-4 in last year’s postseason. For those keeping score, the Big Ten East was 5-1 in the postseason. And
