It’s Tuesday, so you know what that means. The latest edition of the College Football Playoff Rankings will be revealed tonight, and the Oklahoma Sooners look to make some major movement towards the top of the poll after stomping a solid TCU team on a night when top-ranked Georgia and third-ranked Notre Dame also lost. The reveal will be tonight after the Duke vs. Michigan State basketball game around 8 pm.

In today’s edition of Hot Links, you’ll find an excellent case for ranking Oklahoma No. 1, how OU’s offense can be compared to a band, why a rematch in the conference championship game could be a very good thing for the Sooners and more!

  • It’s easy to forget that Lamar Jackson actually won the Heisman Trophy last season. That’s probably because Louisville limped down the stretch last year and hasn’t been relevant practically all season. That being said, a case can be made that Jackson is having a better year in 2017 than his award-winning season in 2016.
  • Latrell Lee, a Tennessee State defensive end, has been expelled from school after striking a strength coach on the sideline during a game. Warning, the video may be disturbing to some:
  • Former OKC Thunder player and current New York Knick Enes Kanter got in a heated dispute with LeBron James on the court in Madison Square Garden. Kanter was sticking up for his rookie teammate before the altercation started to get physical.

“STICK TO SPORTS!”

  • If you were a 90s kid like I was, you should definitely remember the hit TV series ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ on Nickelodeon. Big news: there is going to be a reboot in the form of a movie. I’m actually intrigued by this more than most reboots. The material is there and the potential to really produce something that’s actually scary exists.
  • Boston Dynamics, a robot design company, has unveiled its latest version of a robotic dog called SpotMini. There should be more to come out of this release, but Boston Dynamics did release this teaser video. From the looks of it, the movement is very fluid and the design looks sleek and futuristic. Robotic dogs — what a time to be alive.
