Pam Ward’s run in the chronicles that bear her name is temporarily halted this week as she’s away on WNBA duty. That opens the door for Gary Danielson, Matt Millen, and Craig James to catch up in the standings. It should be an awesome day of college football, which follows the Australian Football Grand Final that I’m sure you were all up watching till the wee hours of the morning. Leave us with all the best and most awful quotes you hear throughout this football Saturday and we’ll put it to a vote on Monday.
