FootballScoop's Fifth Quarter

While you were out celebrating Valentine's Day, decompressing from the 2013 recruiting class, gearing up for the 2014 recruiting class or doing a combination of all three, we were busy compiling everything you need to know. 

Our top five stories of the week:

- This week the Big Ten announced its intention to stop scheduling FCS teams. While most rushed to congratulate the Big Ten, we pointed out this decision could have some pretty drastic consequences.

- We interviewed Buffalo defensive passing game coordinator Maurice Linguist, and he gave some pretty thoughtful answers.

- Last week we conducted a Recruiting/Technology survey. The results are in.

- Will Muschamp had some great advice on how to balance your coaching staff. 

- Alabama has some recruiting photos that we're going to classify as "must see"

The Film Room: Every week we post a great number of videos. Here are the best of the bunch:

- Last week we compiled behind-the-scenes signing day videos. This week we compile "Harlem Shake" videos. #ThatTimeOfYear: GeorgiaD-III Olivet College

- Kansas State is doing some renovations to Bill Snyder Family Stadium. Let KSU AD John Currie show you around.

- Houston held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new stadium. 

- Al Golden has established eight pillars of his Miami program.
