The Scoop: It's not often you see a head coach get fired at this time of year, but that's what happened at North Carolina Central today.

Texas Tech running backs coach Mike Jinks was prepared to stay in the Texas high school ranks for the long haul until Kliff Kingsbury came along: “I told my wife after the Angelo State deal I’d only leave for a Big 12 school in Texas. I just told her, ‘That’s not going to happen.’ So we started building our dream home. We did. We were two weeks from closing. We were two weeks from closing on our house when Kliff called.”

South Carolina has its own rap song and it's not ... that ... bad? 

Jerry Kill on dealing with not being able to drive after suffering from epileptic seizures: "I got two goals in life. Just two. One is to see all the people in the state of Minnesota proud of their Minnesota Gophers football program again. And two is to drive again. I just want to drive my truck, my elbow out the window, listening to country music." Read Rick Reilly's piece on Jerry Kill here.
