Here's your final in-season edition of links. Enjoy. 

"You look at it and ask: Did the players play hard, and were they prepared?" Delany asked. "Yes and yes. You know what? SC's a better football team. In all of the [bowl] games I've watched, I'm seeing us get beat by better teams. Then you say: Why is that? I don't have a great answer other than to say that these things tend to be cyclical."
"Everybody's grown tired of the standard Big Ten lament that its 24-37 bowl record this decade is reflective of an unfair travel disadvantage."
I know I have.
