September Superlatives: Best games, teams, coaches and moments so far

We're through the first third of the college football season -- okay, there's still one more game before the calendar flips to October and it's a fairly massive one in No. 7 Stanford at No. 10 Washington on Friday night, but go with me...

How Ed Orgeron will approach the LSU job: “I’m in charge of lights, you’re in charge of carpet.”

As the coat and tie indicated, Ed Orgeron isn't LSU's interim head coach. Not in his mind, at least. Coach O is running the program as if he's the Tigers' head coach until the day he's told otherwise. And why wouldn't he? As a...
