    The University of Missouri has fired defensive coordinator DeMontie Cross.  Cross was fired just hours after Mizzou's 31-13 loss to South Carolina.  "I am very appreciative of all that DeMontie has done for Mizzou, and am sorry that this did not work out. However, after careful evaluation, I believe it is important to make this change now," head football coach Barry Odom said in a statement.  Before his coaching career, Cross played free safety at the Unive...

Rantankerous [ran-tank'uhr-us] (adjective) - A combination of rant [to speak in a wild or extravagant manner] and cantankerous [contentious, disagreeable]. The word is the only suitable description for the epic arguments between Brian "What We Learned" Tynes and George "Hot Reads" Jones, which until now have never been recorded.

(RNN) - The SEC Championship is Saturday, so of course, we're going to ignore that and talk about the dying art of classical ballet.

Yeah, right. You'd be hard pressed to find two other teams that were the butt of more jokes or that suffered more misfortune than the 2012 versions of Auburn and Missouri.

Now look at them. One year after combining for two SEC wins, they are among the country's elite and fighting for a chance to reach the last national title game under the BCS system.

And oh by the way, some other teams in the Big Ten and ACC are scrapping it out to get the same golden ring - or crystal football. Whatever.

This is a football fan's dream that seems to have no end in sight. Now, about that ballet thing…

    LEXINGTON, Ky.
