From humble upbringing to near perfection for Florida State kicker Roberto Aguayo

No one will blame you if you missed it. It seemed, after all, little more than a joke and a smile. But for the people who know Urban Meyer best and love him dearly, it was a beautiful moment. Here's what happened: Meyer was chatting with the media after Ohio State's surprising victory over Alabama in the College Football Playoff when a reporter casually mentioned, in the middle of a question, that Oregon had beaten Florida State by... Meyer -- who had not yet heard the score of the Ducks-Seminoles game -- looked incredulous, then awestruck. "Oregon won by 40. " Meyer said. But then, after processing it, Meyer laughed. "That moment was awesome," said Gigi Meyer Escoe, the coach's older sister. There was a time, not long ago, when Meyer didn't make jokes -- at least not in public, and not much at home, either. He snarled at reporters, stressed himself into a ball of knots (even after victories), and he generally looked miserable. But he built winners everywhere he went, and his two national titles at Florida earned him a reputation as one of the best in his profession. Sacrificing his personal happiness, especially in the cutthroat world of coaching football, seemed like an understandable trade-off to.
The FSU-Miami rivalry is synonymous with missed field goals, and the only memory crueler than Wide Right I, II and III is the irony of the kick sailing Wide Left in 2002, with Bobby Bowden once again left in disbelief, hands on hips. Florida State opened as a 2. 5-point favorite, its smallest spread since 2011. There won't be any calm among Seminoles fans if the No. 2 Noles need a late field goal, but there should be confidence. The Seminoles have Roberto Jose Aguayo , who has become the country's best kicker, thanks in large part to a work ethic his father, Roberto, instilled in him. Video games and touch screens were obvious modern comforts that were foreign to like-aged boys in Capellanía, so Roberto Jose wasn't moved as children marveled and fiddled with his camera and Nintendo. Roberto Jose considered it an educational barter. “Every time we grew out of our clothes, my dad would pack a suitcase and send them over,” Roberto Jose said, “and when I went over there, I was like ‘Oh my god, I remember that shirt. It is hard to humble an adolescent, but visiting Mexico and adopting the lifestyle of one of Capellanía's native sons -- his father, Roberto, among them -- changed perspectives for Roberto Jose.
11 UCLA plays at No. 15 Arizona State on Thursday night, which means the Pac-12 will have one less undefeated team. Seven programs in the league are a combined 24-0, which is amazing when you think that the Pac-12 plays nine conference games. 2 Oregon did beat No. 9 Michigan State, but the nonconference schedule includes as many FCS teams as from the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12 and SEC (five). The latter group includes a reeling Texas and a more reeling Michigan. The team that grinds out first downs, keeps the ball and runs the clock keeps the opponent's spread offense off the field and prevents it from getting into a rhythm. While teams such as Baylor, West Virginia and Arizona are averaging well over 80 snaps per game, Texas A&M checks in at 76. With fewer plays, the Aggies are second in total offense (612. 5 YPG) and scoring (55. 3). 3. Bureaucracies love nothing... Now, as the Daily Oklahoman reported, Oklahoma State had to return about 1,000 of its 4,000-ticket allotment to Oklahoma for Bedlam on Dec. The Big 12 has a rule that visiting teams must return unsold tickets well in advance of the game. It seems like the visiting team should be able to opt in and keep selling. From time to time, our SEC reporters will give their takes on a burning question facing the league.
