Charlie Strong said yesterday that Baylor and TCU changed the Big 12 with "lesser athletes," a comment which probably won't go over well with players for either teams.
The Numerical is always a college football read worthy of your time.

The latest College Football Playoff Ranking projections from Jerry Palm at CBS have Louisville falling from No. 4 to No. 8.
1. Alabama: A very comfortable win at Arkansas moves the Crimson Tide up to the top spot.
2. Ohio State: There is something about Indiana that brings out the worst in Ohio State. Of course, if the worst in Ohio State is a 21-point win, the rest of college football could be in trouble.
3. Clemson: The Tigers are pretty much neck-and-neck with Texas A&M. I'm keeping the Tigers here because they beat Auburn at Auburn.
4. Texas A&M: The Aggies needed overtime but knocked off Tennessee. That goes with wins over Auburn and Arkansas to give them a pretty good schedule so far.
5. Michigan: Jim Harbaugh's bunch laid the worst beatdown in FBS-vs.-FBS football in the current century, pasting Rutgers 78-0.
6. Tennessee: The Vols have played the best schedule and haven't been beaten in regulation yet.
7. Washington: U-Dub stuck it to Oregon big time. There is a new beast in the Pac-12.
8. Louisville: The Cardinals took the week off and watched as their best remaining opponent took it on the chin.
9. Wisconsin: The Badgers had the week off to prepare for a visit from Ohio State.
10. Virginia Tech: Justin Fuente's first year is off to a pretty good start. The Hokies lost to Tennessee in Bristol but just pounded North Carolina in Chapel Hill to announce themselves as the favorite in the ACC Coastal Division.
Cardiac Hill (Pitt) has Louisville at No. 2 in its ACC power rankings.
Syracuse checks in at No. 12 in our preseason top 25 countdown (note: Louisville has not appeared yet).
