This Might Shock You, But Andy Reid Was A Large ChildS

Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and internets to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.

•Add Austin Collie to the overflowing Colts injury report, after a hit that's going to engender a lot of discussion today (even though it shouldn't). One too many for the Colts, as they fell to the Eagles. Andy Reid is now 12-0 after the bye week in his career. Speaking of Andy Reid...

•There's always one kid in any youth sports competition who looks at least 8 years older than everyone else. In 1971, that kid was 13-year-old "Andrew Ried." And...hey, is that a full mustache?

•The BCS has always been about "be high in the preseason polls, and just don't lose." How else to explain TCU remaining third despite demolishing Utah? (Oh, right, the non-BCS conference thing too.)

•Two months ago, Kevin Durant received a top-secret invitation to scrimmage with President Obama at the White House. Might this explain both Durant's .394 FG% and the results of the midterm elections? I think it might.

•You can really learn a lot about a team's testicular fortitude by how hard they try when the season appears to have slipped away. Brett Favre and the Vikings did themselves proud with a comeback victory; the Cowboys, not so much. (Even LeBron knows what's up.)

Good morning. Hope your weekend was a fine one.
