Special programming note from Chris Kluwe:
College Football is officially over for the season. By the way, Pac-12 Refs officiated the title game last night.
Get ready for this AAALLLL game! #PAC12REFS— Joseph Fauria (@BigJoeFauria) January 8, 2013
Hmm, he would know.
Good try, possible QB of the future:
It seems like ages ago, but the Rose Bowl was less than a week ago.

And the Vikings season is also over:
Quest updates aside, proud of how much we were able to accomplish this year. Played with a great group of guys; you can't ask for any more.— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) January 6, 2013
And how Christian Yount is spending his off season:
What you know about nature? @ Arches National Park instagr.am/p/UIC5xNA0wx/— Christian Yount (@TheYount) January 6, 2013
I've been alone in the dorms over winter break too, and yes, it is CREEPY without anyone around.
I think our dorms are haunted so many scary things happening!!! I don't wanna be alone anymore!— Peng Peng Lee (@PengPengCLee) January 3, 2013
By the way, speaking of empty dorms, look at what former UCLA assistant coach Kerry Keating did:
Dorms are closed till Sun. so Coach Keating offers to pay for hotel rooms to get students at Gonzaga game this Sat. ow.ly/gw87s— Santa Clara Univ (@SantaClaraUniv) January 3, 2013
There were a few kids that took him up on the offer.
Once the dorms opened up, the football players were ecstatic the dining halls were open:

I see fries, two grilled cheese, a chicken sandwich (or a burger), three slices of pizza, some pasta, two things of taquitos, and some fruit. I just gained 5 pounds looking at that!
Also in the dorms and now enrolled is Lacy Westbrook, whom you may recall collapsed in the fall and required brain surgery:
I need this BRUINCARD asap!— Lacy Westbrook (@LacyWestbrook) January 6, 2013
Hopefully he was able to become official today. Welcome to Westwood, Lacy!
This is what it means to be a teammate:

If you don't speak "sneaker" the Jordan XI's are a ridiculously popular, in demand, always sells out in five minutes, causes fights in parking lots shoe release. The "Concords" was a recently re-released and of course hard to get... unless your name is Russell Westbrook and on the Jordan Brand. Um Russell I could use the "Playoffs" edition .. or the Space Jams...
Oof, I miss Bossa Nova.

I NEED A JOB!!— Miguel A. Melendez (@MelendezSports) January 3, 2013
I LOVE Boy Meets World.
Boy Meets World reruns might be the best reruns. Seinfeld, a close second.— Ryan Kartje (@Ryan_Kartje) January 4, 2013
I'm not a Seinfeld fan though.
We also bid farewell to Baxter Holmes, who was providing good coverage for the LA Times, but he is moving on to the Boston Globe to cover the Celtics.
Aww, happy birthday Kenny Lacy:
