Kill Me Now If we were to have a contest here at the site, asking readers to name their Top 10 songs they'd least like to work out/get pumped up to, I'd wager with confidence that a handful of songs would make appearances on multiple ballots.

For example, "I Can Still Make Cheyenne," by George Strait. It's slow. It's depressing. It makes most people want to quit on love, if not life.

And yet, it makes Colt McCoy's Top 10 motivating songs list, as surveyed by the Austin American-Statesman. Here we've been spending all this time debating Colt's merits in arm strength, pocket presence, and decision making, but Barking Carnival rightly asks if Colt's Top 10 list tells us all we need to know.

Colt McCoy's Top 10 Songs To Motivate During A Workout

  1. (tie) 'She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy,' Kenny Chesney and 'I Can Still Make Cheyenne,' George Strait
  1. 'Good Directions,' Billy Currington

  1. 'Big City,' Merle Haggard
  1. 'Cowboy Song,' Thin Lizzy
  1. 'Yellow Ledbetter,' Pearl Jam
  1. 'Bad Company,' Bad Company
  1. 'Hotel California,' Eagles
  1. 'Lost and Found,' Randy Rogers Band

God help the Longhorns.

The Dam Is Leaking. Mike Leach and Mack Brown weighed in on the BCS System, with each suggesting changes need to be made. Leach wants a full 32- or 64-team playoff to conclude a 10-game regular season. Mack Brown favors at least some minor changes that would allow for a playoff in years where there are a number of equally worthy teams.

Brown went on to offer his condolences for several teams which got shut out of the BCS this year.

"I think it's unfair for two or three teams," Brown said. "I don't know how you can keep Arizona State out of the BCS. I don't know how you can fall from No. 1 in the country [referring to Missouri] out of the BCS."

When You Gotta Go... Um, I don't have any additional commentary on this post. Just... wow.

Irony, Meet Thy Maiden. Everyone remember 54b's post from Friday? If you missed it, here's a refresher:

10) "Texas football players Andre Jones and James Henry were indicted Thursday by a Travis County grand jury in connection with an alleged robbery in July involving former Texas football player Robert Joseph. According to police, Joseph and Jones broke into an apartment in southeast Austin on July 27 and stole cash, cell phones and gaming equipment."

Let’s hope they’re acquitted because I don’t think any of us could stand the irony if the football team was given Nintendos as bowl prizes.

Fast-forward to today, and this news about Texas' bowl prizes, as furnished by the Holiday Bowl: the Longhorns and Sun Devils will each receive complimentary Ninento Wiis and a copy of Madden 2008, among other prizes.
