Midweek fun and linkage

* From the Texas A&M front: Go here for "The Economic Importance of the Big 12: Potential Losses from Conference Realignment" from The Perryman Group, an economic and financial analysis firm based in Waco. (The numbers are big but not backed up, at least on the PDF). Then go here for the Big 12 commissioner saying he's ready for a decision, any decision.

* The Oregonian has all the stories and details about the traffic stop involving Ducks' starting quarterback Darron Thomas. (Latest word is that Thomas will be suiting up for the LSU game). Start here.
* "Steve Spurrier Vineyards introduces 'Gamecock Garnet' wine." Enough said. The story from WLTX in Columbia also lists the stores where it's available; go here for that.
* And ESPN's Chris Low provides a few predictions here.
