The Mid-Morning Dump - 12/11/12

THIS MIGHT BE BAD NEWS. The official Liberty Bowl tailgate will feature $35 all you can eat BBQ and alcohol. Just remember, it's OK to make bad decisions if Jamie Pollard tacitly approves.

LINEUP CHANGES HERE TO STAY? Will Percy Gibson and Georges Niang's inclusions into the starting lineup be a lasting change?

DON'T WORRY ABOUT WHO STARTS. Steve Malchow tells us not to worry about who starts, but rather to focus on the minutes.

SCOUTING CUSTER. Brent Blum reports on what he thinks about Iowa State recruit Clayton Custer.

MONKEN'S GONE! The offensive coordinator for the high flying OSU offense is leaving to take the lead job at one of Larry Eustachy's former homes, Southern Miss.

TUBERVILLE SURPRISE. Tommy Tuberville gave no indication to AD Kirby Hocutt he was leaving, instead, he basically pulled a Chizik.

PETRINO'S THIRD ACT. Spencer Hall looks at what Bobby's next stop at Western Kentucky means to his legacy.

MORE BIG EAST DRAMA. The seven non-FBS members are unhappy about the direction the Big East is headed, and they may split off.

COTTON BOWL RESURGENCE. The Cotton Bowl is positioned just outside the "prestigious" BCS bowls, but is doing its best to change that.

UNJUSTIFIED VOTE OF CONFIDENCE. Mack Brown has the administration's support. But is it justified?

BAD NIGHT FOR THE TEXANS. When Danny Woodhead fumbles a ball 10 yards and the Patriots still get a touchdown, you're probably screwed.
