Alabama and Clemson remained locked into the top spots of the latest college football AP poll. The top ten are as follows:Alabama Clemson Notre Dame Michigan Georgia Oklahoma Washington State UCF LSU Ohio State Obviously, Alabama and Clemson aren’t going to be moving out of the top spots unless they lose. The Crimson Tide didn’t exactly impress anybody this weekend against The Citadel. In fact, they looked pathetic in the first half. There’s no excuse to be tied 10-10 at halftime with an FCS team.

Markets rejoiced at the report, with the Dow Jones industrial average closing up more than 330 points, or 1.2%, on Friday.

It is a very British thing. Neil and his anxious quarry sit in facing chairs, the erudite, orotund-voiced, imposing BBC inquisitor holding in his fists sheafs of paper with lots and lots of uncomfortable facts.

Now, bucking all precedent, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has canceled his appointment in the dentist chair with Neil. This has suddenly become a surprising, serious issue in the campaign. On Thursday night, Neil issued a remarkable, unprecedented on-air challenge to Johnson, and he did so on the state-supported BBC, where he suggested that Johnson might be a coward or a fabricator.
