On the NCAAFB podcast with Michelle:

#1 No surprises how the Big Game at Cal was called off on Saturday because the Air Quality Index was over 200 on Friday at 240. Berkeley was blanketed with smoke from the Northern California Paradise Camp Fires. Giving the Bay Area the worst air quality second to Bangladesh that was Friday. On Saturday the air quality actually improved dropping from 240 to 156 still unhealthy but breathing conditions much better. The Big Game has been rescheduled to Sat Dec 1st.

#2 Harvard running back Devin Darrington while running towards the end zone and being pursued by Yale defenders gave the bird to the nearest Yale defender before crossing the end zone. The officials disqualified the touchdown because of unsportsmanship like conduct. Harvard went onto win the game 45-27.

#3 Ohio State coach Urban Meyer’s health condition is in question after he was seen bent over hands on knees, palms pressed against his head. Meyer had surgery in 2014 for a cyst in the brain. Meyer’s doctor Dr. Andrew Thomas said that Meyer suffers from aggressive headaches. Meyer was suspended at the beginning of the season for four games when he was accused of having knowledge of former assistant coach Zach Smith had been abusing his wife and Meyer didn’t take any action to discipline Smith at the time.
