Video that Freeze and the staff showed the Rebels before the LSU game

The job that Hugh Freeze and his staff have done at Ole Miss is nothing short of remarkable. They've helped take a fledgling 2-10 program and built it into a 6-6 bowl eligible team that has been able to hang with the many of the top teams in the SEC.

Here's a look at the video that the Rebels watched before taking on LSU, a game that they eventually lost 41-35 in the waning moments.

No one can argue that the schemes that the staff prepare all week go a long way on game day, but getting your players in the right mind set to compete with some of the biggest and best in the country is one area that Freeze and his staff have obviously done an admirable job of this season. If 2012 is any indication, they've all got a bright future in Oxford.

Urban Meyer on going undefeated: "Once you're there, it tastes really good"

Urban Meyer's Ohio State team finished its sanction-shortened season at 12-0 on Saturday with a 26-21 win over Michigan on Friday. While the Buckeyes are ineligible for the Big Ten and BCS championships, Meyer's season laid a strong foundation for things to come. 

With a roster that returns nine offensive starters and five defensive starters, Meyer knows bigger things could be ahead for Ohio State. 

Meyer has been to the mountain top before, and with two national championships at Florida, an undefeated season at Utah and now an undefeated season at Ohio State, he's practically a Sherpa now. For Meyer, the biggest takeaway leading into 2013 was allowing his team to get a taste of winning at the highest level.

"The whole theme this week was go where the air is rare," said Meyer. "The last door is a big one. Open it up, kick it open, do what you have to do to get through that door. Once you're in there, it smells different, it tastes different, it looks different. I'm hoping our guys get that taste and they want to go do it again because once you taste that, it tastes really good."

Well said from a man who knows the trail to the mountain top.

Jimbo Fisher: "Rumors are a funny thing"

Jimbo Fisher joined Mike Bianchi on 740AM "The Game" this morning and wanted to set the record straight on his interest in other jobs and rumors that have been circulating that he may be interested in the Auburn job.

"Rumors are a funny thing. The guys who get rumored, if you go back and think about it, are the guys who never get the job. Those are the guys that have to start something on a blog to get some hits."

"I'm very happy at Florida State." Fisher added. "I'm content to be here. If they continue to have me, I'm very happy to be here." 

Fisher's got a very good situation with the Seminoles. The fan base loves him, he's in the hottest recruiting area in the nation, he will consistently be able to put together one of the top recruiting classes in the country, and it will only be a matter of time before Florida State is competing for national titles again. They've made big strides each year with him at the helm, and show no signs of slowing down with the talent pool that the coaching staff has been able to add to the roster.

Anything can happen at this time of year, but we don't see Fisher jumping ship for another gig. In the meantime, be sure to stay tuned to The Scoop for all of the latest coaching news and information.

 

 

Video: "It's you versus them. Let's see what you got"

Really good motivational video here for Rutgers' (9-2, 5-1) regular season finale against Louisville (9-2, 4-2) on Thursday.

"The only thing that we can count on in any given moment is you."

"It's you versus them. You versus no. You versus can't. You versus next year, last year, statistics, excuses. It is you versus history. You versus the odds. It's you versus second place."

"The clock is ticking...Let's see what you got."
