Chris Vernon of 92.9 ESPN Radio in Memphis returns to the Dan Wetzel Football Podcast this week, if only so we can dust off his classic, million-click YouTube song "Colonel Reb is Crying" in honor of the return to the head coaching ranks of the one and only Ed Orgeron.

The background to the song, the disclosure that Coach O once/still dips coffee grinds, and whether there is a future at USC or elsewhere for one of the most colorful coaches in college football is discussed.

So too is the fact that as stadiums have gotten fancier, the crowd has gotten more gentle, yet there are more empty seats. Chris details it all after hanging out in a luxury box in Oxford, Miss., last weekend.

[Also: Listen to all of Dan Wetzel's podcasts here]

Other topics include whether Baylor (and/or Ohio State) can reach the BCS title game even at 12-0, whether Johnny Manziel can repeat as the Heisman winner, whether Stanford still has a chance to win it all, whether Jim Mora is the next big thing in the sport, whether Bob Knight's "Golf Your Way" outtakes remain the standard in which all others are judged and whether the brilliant Jameis Winston can handle the pressure of his first true big game – Death Valley on Saturday Night.

Predictions are made on Auburn (plus 13.5) at Texas A&M, UCLA (plus 5) at Stanford, USC (plus 3) at Notre Dame and FSU (minus 3) at Clemson.

Plus, why did some guy from Barcelona threaten to kill Vernon? There's a lot more too. This week went off the rails early and often.
