The list of things I learned during these past two weeks of preseason media days, is vast. Best interviews, best quotes, best stories.

Two years into unprecedented penalties, all is not lost at Penn State. And the progress should convince the NCAA it is time to admit its bowl ban was a mistake.

Michigan has fallen far behind Ohio State and Michigan State. Brady Hoke has one last chance to breathe some life into its sputtering offense, or else.

NCAA president Mark Emmert made pointed examples of progress being made in enforcement in a letter obtained by CBSSports.com. Emmert did not mention, but the letter is assumed to be in response to recent criticisms by Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby.

The Big Ten, a powerhouse starved for titles, adds Maryland and Rutgers this season. Why is Jim Delaney realigning to 14 teams? It has little to do with football.

The city of Los Angeles loves a winner and the UCLA Bruins have been that and more under coach Jim Mora. But QB Brett Hundley and the Bruins have a huge mountain to climb in the tough Pac-12.

You can't blame the Pac-12 for being a little defensive. Commissioner Larry Scott feels says it plays the toughest schedule in college football. A national title in would help prove its supremacy.

Oklahoma hasn't won the Big 12 outright since 2010. But after its win over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, the Sooners are the pick to win the conference.

There will be four playoff teams, and there are five power conferences. Without a conference title game (and its strength-of-schedule bump), the Big 12 begins this new era at a disadvantage.

Texas A&M's Cedric Ogbuehi was allowed to collect $50,000-plus from the NCAA to help pay for an insurance premium. A&M and Ogbuehi took advantage of a little-known rule that allows for the cash to be paid to protect a player's draft position.

Anyone in need of a credential from all the BCS title games? Dennis Dodd has them. In three decades in the business, he's covered everything from the Olympics to Stanley Cup to conference realignment. Just get him on campus in a press box in the fall. His heart lies with college football.
