Dabo Swinney: "It's so easy to say we got a race problem, but we got a sin problem."

Maryland: Defensive coordinator Andy Buh has signed a three-year deal worth $1.88 million, according to the Washington Post. Buh, who joined the staff in April following the resignation of Scott Shafer for personal reasons, will get $400k in base pay over the next three years, and will make more than $600k in supplemental income, including $187,500 this season and $250,000 in years two and three of the deal. Additionally, he'll earn $10k for a Terps appearance in the Big Ten title game, another $10k if they win it, $10k for making a non-CFB Playoff bowl, and $15k for reaching the CFB Playoff, and $5k for a win in a non-CFB Playoff bowl game. Buh is entitled to his entire base salary and potential bonuses if his contract is terminated at any point during the three-year deal, and he would owe half his base salary if he leaves for another job within the first year, and 25% of his remaining base salary if he leaves for another job in the second or third year of the deal.

Sam Wyche: A post on Coach Wyche's Facebook page at 10AM this morning said, "Coach is out of the Operating Room and in recovery! The surgeon said Sam did great! The total operating time was 4.5 hours. Now he is a strong man, spiritually and physically with a strong heart, thanks to a wonderful donor and donor's family."

Depth Chart: Colorado's version of Michigan's depth chart is way more interesting than the real thing. Vito Corleone, Bernie Sanders and Frank Drebin all on the same defense? Well done Buffs, well done indeed.

Please join us in praying for the family of former NFL head coach Sam Wyche, who is undergoing heart transplant surgery this morning. Wyche, who is considered one of the forefathers of the no huddle, coached the Bengals from 1984-1995, and played in the NFL for eight seasons.

STATS of the Day: Since 1994 when the NFL adopted 2-pt conversions, teams have had 160 such scenarios like the Raiders did (down by one after scoring a TD in the final two minutes of 4th quarter) and have gone for two just 12 times (7.5% of the time). Of those 12 times, teams have converted four (including Oakland this weekend). STATS solutions give teams the tools to unlock their competitive advantage
