Jay - while everyone was watching NFL games Saturday evening, I watched the trainwreck in Knoxville. I saw it coming in the second half, but couldn't look away. For the mailbag...if the Cuonz doesn't get it done this season, any chance Pearl could make a return to the college game?

Jay-I'll take AU tonite if for no other reason than I'd like to answer "FSU" to the future trivia question, "Who lost the first and last BCS championship games?" Mailbag query...what do we do til August now?

Jay - if A Reader is dating Little Miss Sportsfan, the answer is NEVER and get off my porch!

Jay - I got a few minutes, so here's a mailbag query for you. What's your Rushmore of sports memorabilia that you would like to display in your mancave if money wasn’t an issue?

Jay - I'll take Bama 42-35 in OT. Sorry. Also, I predict Musberger gets a restraining order after a pre-game interview of Ms. Webb.

Jay-Happy 800 and Happy Thanksgivakkuh! Mrs. Sportsfan prefers her white bread toasted. I encourage the 5at10 readers to consider donating $ or time to organizations that support those who suffered recent losses in the Midwest, the Philipines, or just around the corner. Looking forward to the next 800. No pressure.

Jay - I know the season isn't over yet, but for the Friday mailbag...briefly (it's a holiday and there's lots of football to watch)...what good things from season 1 does Butch Jones have to build on for the 2014 season?

Jay - from personal experience...granted I'm not a professional athlete, and I'm a shade over 35, but here's the recovery timeline for a complete achilles tendon tear. After surgery, 9 weeks in a cast with no weight on the leg at all followed by 9 more weeks in a boot gradually increasing pressure on the leg. 10 weeks of rehab that started about 5 weeks after the cast while in the boot. That's 23 weeks before I was able to walk (with a limp) without a boot. Running was not an option until much later. The surgeon told me it would take a year to heal, and it just about did. Even with an unlimited rehab budget, a 7 month recovery is pretty incredible. BTW, I snapped it playing basketball in the driveway with Sportsfan Jr and Little Miss Sportsfan. I guess I'm older than I look.

Jay-I too spent 20 years in the ATL and after close to 10 years I still haven't seen traffic in the Noog. I write this from Killarney Rose near Wall St in NYC. I have now witnessed traffic on HGH, steroids, and all things PED. After several cab rides I find find it comforting to just not watch. Now that the Braves are moving, for the Friday mailbag, what is your Rushmore of sports venues that would be sacrilege to move? Happy Tuesday and I'll have another stout, please.

Jay - one more for the mailbag. What's your prediction for the last local team standing in the high school football playoffs? You could almost make a contest out of that...
