* One hundred days is a major landmark for any presidential administration, but at CFN we're celebrating a different kind: one hundred days until the return of college football. It's been a tough year for many, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

* Notre Dame is in talks to return college football to Yankee Stadium. Not only that, but - well, we'll let Irish AD Jack Swarbrick tell you: “It would be of great historical significance for us if it would be Army. We would love that. Some of the most significant games in the history of college football involve those two schools and Yankee Stadium.” This story is so awesome that there's nothing even remotely snarky or cynical about it. (Okay, fine, maybe they can dig up Grantland Rice, too. Happy now?)

* Everyone's favorite Lane-iac, Lane Kiffin, says that his tumultuous offseason has been good for the Tennessee program: "Our fans have had a few tough years down here, taking a beating (from Gator fans). Losing by 63 points over the last two years didn't give them much to talk about, so I gave them something to talk about when they're at the coffee pot or playing golf with their buddies." His logic makes sense, but it does remain to be seen whether Kiffin will be anything more than the SEC court jester.

100 days and counting...
