Greg McElroy is the starting quarterback for the New York Jets this week. Coach Rex Ryan made it perfectly clear Tuesday that it was his decision to replace struggling starter Mark Sanchez with the team's No. 3 quarterback for Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers. That's about all that was perfectly clear after Ryan's conference call with the press, during which he refused to go into detail about why he chose McElroy over Tim Tebow, the guy who has been listed as the team's No. 2 quarterback all season.

Greg McElroy inherited his drive and work ethic from his mother, Diane, who raised two children alone and worked two jobs to support them. "Seeing how hard my mom worked helped me learn to appreciate even the little things," McElroy said. "I knew that the only way to achieve anything was to work real hard." The plan has paid off for the 38-year-old Valley native, who is considered to be one of the top young executives in sports marketing.

Mark Sanchez will be on the sideline when the New York Jets play their final home game of the season on Sunday. And standing right next to the former starting quarterback could very well be supposed No. 2 QB Tim Tebow. Calling the signals for the Jets against the San Diego Chargers will be former third-stringer Greg McElroy, who apparently leapfrogged over Tebow to take over as starter for the now-benched Sanchez. McElroy, a seventh-round pick last year out of Alabama, has made just one appearance in an NFL game, coming in for a struggling Sanchez late in the third quarter against the Arizona Cardinals on Dec. 2 and leading the Jets to a 7-6 victory.

Nebraska is still on the minds of Texas' offensive linemen. Preparing to confront a fierce Alabama defense in the Bowl Championship Series title game Thursday at the Rose Bowl, the question is whether the Longhorns have enough up front. The Nebraska game was the topic of conversation during Sunday's media rounds, and will certainly be touched on during Longhorns practices at UC Irvine this week. There are plenty of connect-the-dot comparisons between Alabama and Nebraska on defense, but Texas' Colt McCoy will be happy to know that the way they rush the quarterback isn't one of them.

Offensive linemen don't win Heisman Trophies. Neither do running backs without a few 300-pound bulldozers clearing a path. That's why Alabama running back Mark Ingram's Heisman acceptance speech last month included a shout-out to his five faves. "Everything I do starts with them," Ingram said Monday. "I try to give them as much praise, as much acknowledgment, as I could because they're kind of like the unsung heroes. They talk about me, but they're never on the picture, they're never on the highlights."

It's an esteemed clash. It's a coveted crown. It's also a manifestation of a mess and a culmination of kooky. Unlike title bouts in other sports, college football's Bowl Championship Series title game is both myth and magic, filled with as much mirth as meaning. First, it's not a true championship, because it is not the result of a true playoff. Second, it's not a true test of champions, seeing as it's played between teams that have not competed in a real game in more than a month.

Greg McElroy has saved the day for the New York Jets! Well, at least he saved one day for the team, and that day was Sunday. The second-year quarterback did two very important things for Jets fans in his first NFL appearance. He replaced starting QB Mark Sanchez, who has been struggling pretty much all season but was really struggling Sunday. And on his very first drive, which started late in the third quarter, McElroy led the Jets to their only touchdown of the day, a one-yard pass from the quarterback to Jeff Cumberland on the first play of the fourth quarter.
