Morning Six Pack: October 4, 2012 chugging is alcohol abuse. Who would do that to such sweet nectar? Put that out of your mind as you enjoy these six college football stories from around the country.

You think the SEC refs are bad… 

The Big 12's coordinator of officials "apologized profusely" to Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy for his official's botched call at the end of the Cowboys' 41-36 loss to Texas, according to a report in The Oklahoman.

'Is this what we want football to be?'

Nick Saban wonders aloud if the fast pace is a safety risk to defensive players.

Ball Security A Key For The Bulldogs

Inside the bankruptcy of Arkansas coach John L. Smith

David Shaw sticking by Stanford’s starting QB

You could list off a handful of reasons why Stanford was upset by Washington 17-13 last Thursday. The poor play of quarterback Josh Nunes is unquestionably one of them.


"It's football. Guys are going to come and try to get an advantage to win. This game has changed a lot ... Everybody wants to come and run the no-huddle so the defense can't get the perfect play in. But as a football player, you've got to get out there and you've got to play.

"You've got to get around the ball and realize that you're not going to get to play that play and you put your hand on the ground and play football the way it's supposed to be played at that time. You can't really worry about the tempo. If they made rules and regulations to that, then I guess that would be a plus for the defense, but at this very moment, we've got to go out there and play whatever they give to us, whatever that may be.

"A lot of teams come out and run crazy formations. I definitely didn't see any of that football when I was coming up, playing little league and things like that. So things are getting a little different, but we've got to react to what they give us. That's why it's defense and we play whatever we see."
