"Good morning bud"

"What's so good about it?"

"Uh oh, did you get swept last night?"

"No I went 1-1. Same for you?"

"Yeah. Had a teaser with SD and over but that shit the bed. Did hit a team total with Houston over 51 that saved me from an ass-raping potentially bloodier than Sandusky!."

"I had under Oak/SD but Georgia Tech screwed me big time because they lack a passing game altogether".

"We both pick up two broads last night but they don't last more than a half hour in our bed. WTF?"

"Yeah they could see we were pissed off about last night. I couldn't even get a buzz, but when they left I got angry wasted. Guess it was just one of those nights. At least there's a shitload of CBB tonight. I'm heading to the bar for breakfast."

"I'm with you!"

At a press conference on Friday afternoon, Penn State interim president Rodney Erickson announced that embattled assistant coach Mike McQueary -- a grand jury witness in the Jerry Sandusky sexual assault investigation -- had been placed on indefinite paid administrative leave, and that he would not attend the Penn State-Nebraska game at Beaver Stadium on Saturday.

McQueary's disassociation from the Penn State program may have already gone farther than what was announced by the university, however.

Later Friday afternoon, PennLive.com reported that McQueary spoke to his wide receivers via a speakerphone, and told them that he was not only on leave, he was out as a coach -- and under protective custody:

During a brief and emotional conversation, McQueary told them, “I wanted to let you guys know I'm not your coach anymore. I'm done.”

When players asked, "Coach, where are you? Can we see you?" McQueary responded, “No, I'm actually in protective custody. I'm not in State College.”

McQueary added that he was, "Double-fisting it," meaning he was having two drinks at once.

While Erickson's press conference mentioned nothing about protective custody, he did mention that the current environment surrounding McQueary and the team made going on leave a necessity.

"It became clear Coach McQueary could not function in this role under these circumstances," said Erickson. McQueary had come under fire for not intervening in an alleged sexual assault by Sandusky in 2002 after witnessing it, then reporting the assault to since-fired Penn State head coach Joe Paterno, but not directly to police.

A day earlier, Penn State had already announced that McQueary would not be coaching in this weekend's game, but the school merely said that that decision had been made because of threats against McQueary received by the school. Presumably, those threats are what have led to the reported protective custody. There was no mention of McQueary's job status in the Thursday announcement, and Erickson's press conference only revealed that McQueary's administrative leave was indefinite and paid.

When one reporter asked him whether McQueary was covered under whistleblower laws, since he reported the incident to a superior, Erickson simply acknowledged that "there are complexities" to the issue. Erickson also declined to go into whether McQueary was on leave because of the threats Penn State reported receiving, or because of his role in reporting the alleged assault in 2002.

Sandusky faces 40 various counts of sexual misbehavior with minors, and the state of Pennsylvania has announced that the investigation is still ongoing.

Saturday's College Gameday feature matchup: Oregon at Stanford
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Leave the defenses down in Dixie.

In the Pac-12's marquee matchup this weekend, No. 3 Stanford and No. 6 Oregon feature a pair of the nation's highest-scoring and most innovative offenses, showcasing schemes and stars that take remarkably different paths to success.

Power vs. Speed.

Luck vs. LaMichael.

Two contrasting styles that promise points - unlike top-ranked LSU's 9-6 overtime victory over previously No. 2 Alabama last week - when the Cardinal (9-0, 7-0) host the Ducks (8-1, 6-0) Saturday night on The Farm. The winner likely locks up a spot in the inaugural league title game and maybe even a chance to play for a BCS championship.

First team to score 50 wins?

"It's all about putting points up on the board. Our offense tries to do that and their offense does, too. It doesn't matter how you get to that point," Stanford quarterback and Heisman Trophy hopeful Andrew Luck said. "So long as you score."

Oregon's spread-option, no-huddle offense headlined by running back LaMichael James relies on speed and misdirection. And while Luck anchors a prolific passing game, the Cardinal count on a powerful pro-style offense, bunching up formations that often include three tight ends or seven offensive linemen.

"It's not just Andrew Luck," Oregon coach Chip Kelly said.

The Ducks and Cardinal lead the Pac-12 and also rank among the Top 10 in the nation in almost every major offensive category. The staggering statistics are the kind usually reserved for video games, producing similar results despite the differences.

Stanford averages 48 points and Oregon 46 points, good for third- and fifth-best in the country, respectively. The Ducks have averaged 510.67 yards per game (seventh) to Stanford's 505.78 yards (eighth), with Oregon gaining slightly more on the ground and the Cardinal racking up more in the air.

All of it is based on opposite personnel.

"It's a vicious circle, to a certain degree," Stanford coach David Shaw said. "We're probably the only team in the nation with four scholarship fullbacks on the team. This is who we are. We've got multiple, big offensive linemen who can play. It's just what we do. They do the same thing. They have a scheme, and they're recruiting to a scheme that fits them."

Kelly developed his version of the spread when he was an assistant at New Hampshire, then tailored his scheme after arriving in Eugene as offensive coordinator in 2007 to accommodate running backs Jonathan Stewart and Jeremiah Johnson, as well as dual-threat quarterback Dennis Dixon.

Already running a no-huddle offense, Oregon further sped things up last season by streamlining play-calling, using distinctive posters flashed from the sidelines to signal plays as they surged to the BCS championship game, where they lost to Auburn.

"We're not a finesse team. We just have fast players," James said.

The style also makes the Ducks efficient - at times even too efficient, if that's possible.

Oregon is often so quick to score behind big-play bursts that its offense is hardly on the field. The Ducks rank 51st in the nation in time of possession, averaging only 23:52 per contest, meaning they're only on the field a little more than a third of the game. In comparison, Stanford's grinding offense averages a time of possession of 33:17.

"The way they use their athletes and their speed and the way they put points on the board is very impressive for an offensive guy," Luck said.

Stanford's system, meanwhile, is designed to methodically maul opponents with zone blocking.

The Cardinal have a pair of projected first-round picks on the offensive line - left tackle Jonathan "Moose" Martin and guard David DeCastro - anchoring a blocking scheme former coach Jim Harbaugh developed under Michigan great Bo Schembechler. The designs have only continued to evolve.

Nowhere is that more apparent than at tight end.

Stanford has a trio of NFL-caliber tight ends that have a rare combination of size and speed, creating mismatch nightmares all over the field. Coby Fleener (6-foot-6), Zach Ertz (6-foot-6) and Levine Toilolo (6-foot-8) have affectionately been nicknamed "Tree's Company," inspired by the school's mascot.

Ertz has a right knee injury and is "doubtful" to play against Oregon, and that could limit one of the Cardinal's favorite formations: All three tight ends on the field together. Fullback Ryan Hewitt is expected to see time at both positions for the second straight week after playing a big role in Stanford's 38-13 victory at Oregon State last week.

In an age when spread offenses have become cool, Stanford has simply taken the opposite approach.

"(Stanford) will look like 1950 sometimes, they'll have everybody within 10 yards of each other," Oregon State coach Mike Riley said.

The Cardinal also used combinations of fullbacks, receivers - even linemen in years past - out of the backfield for passes, and Luck has been known to spread the ball around. Only five of Stanford's 27 touchdowns passes this season have been caught by wide receivers, while the tight ends have 16.

"The thing about them is their diversity," Kelly said. "That's what sets them apart."

Each style might even suit the surface.

Two years ago on grass, the Cardinal jumped out to a 17-point first-half lead and held on for a wild 51-42 win. Last year on turf at Autzen Stadium, Oregon rallied from a 21-3 deficit in the first quarter with a dominant second half, breaking away for a 52-31 victory - the only blemish for Stanford during a two-year run of near-perfection.

Perhaps a little rain or some thick grass to slow the Ducks?

"We can play on sand," Shaw said. "They're fast."
