Jackie Sherrill, the new coach at Mississippi State, was up to his old tricks against Texas on Saturday. Sherrill's Bulldogs came through with big defensive plays to upset the 13th-ranked Longhorns, 13-6, at Starkville, Miss. It was the sixth time in a row a Sherrill-coached team has beaten Texas. Sherrill, former Pittsburgh and Texas A&M coach, was out of football the past two years. "It was one of those days where our players didn't believe Texas would win," Sherrill said.

One of the lessons of football as the great educator in our society is to take the bull by the horns, so to speak. And so Jackie Sherrill goes from campus to campus leaving behind his trail of dirty laundry and is welcomed at the next institution as a great educator.

Another week, another saga at Notre Dame. The latest Irish crisis comes in the form of heralded freshman receiver Mike Miller, who had been compared favorably to former Notre Dame star Raghib (Rocket) Ismail. Similar size. Similar speed. Similar positions. And as it turns out, one other similarity: Both are no longer at Notre Dame. Miller quit the team Monday and returned to his Missouri City, Tex., home, then immediately enrolled at Houston.
