    A college football news roundup that includes Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney already being focused on another championships and a Texas signee being arrested.


    One of my favorite things to do after work is have a few drinks at my local bar, sit down in a seat away from everyone else, and start reading some of the best longform pieces that are recommended to me by a few websites. I get so involved in them that sometimes, the next time I look up from my phone, 45 minutes have passed. I should really socialize more and do this at home.

    In college football news, we explain why NFL teams trying to lure Alabama head coach Nick Saban back to the professional ranks will not stop anytime soon, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh suggested the hiring of Michael Johnson as wide receivers coach to Oregon, and Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said Kelly Bryant is leading the quarterback race as of right now. Here are some other newsworthy notes in the latest college football news roundup.

    That Was Great, But – Speaking of Swinney and Clemson, the Tigers head coach has stated that he is past winning the national championship and is ready to go after another one.

    “We’re not defending a national championship. We’re chasing another one … last year’s over.”

    Celebration is over, Clemson, so put away all the party hats and noisemakers for the next appropriate time.

    Hooked ‘Em – This is not how you want to make an impression so close after signing day.

    Reese Leitao, a tight end from Jenks, Okla. and Texas Longhorns signee, was arrested on drug charges. According to the police report, Leitao was in possession of more than $1,300 worth of Xanax and admitted he intended to sell them.

    “We’re aware of the situation involving our signee, Reese Leitao,” Texas coach Tom Herman said in a statement. “We’re collecting information, will talk to Reese and his family, let the legal system run its course and then address it further at the appropriate time.”

    Weekends Free – Well, the Mid-American conference has done it. They have gone where no one has gone before.

    Yes, from October 31 through the rest of the regular season, all MAC games will be played during the week, leaving Saturdays free for all those fans of conference teams to go and pick some apples or do some early Christmas shopping.

    Not even the conference championship game will be played on a weekend, as the two division winners will meet up on Friday, Dec. 1.

    Football fans all over the nation are rejoicing. It’s peak MACtion.
