4 at 4: A special Tuesday edition of the afternoon links

AUBURN, Ala. — If you're like me, you can't get enough different angles and calls of Ricardo Louis' incredible touchdown catch in Auburn's 43-38 victory over Georgia.

But if you haven't seen it the way it's presented in a pair of embedded videos at the bottom of this article, you're doing yourself a disservice.

Before we get to that, however, let's get to the rest of the links in a special Tuesday afternoon edition of "4 at 4."

1. This won't be the first article about the BCS, and it won't be the last, either. Will Leitch of Sports On Earth writes not of the controversies the BCS has been involved in since its inception since 1998 — and there have been plenty. Instead, he says that the biggest problem the BCS has created is the championship game it rendered every other bowl meaningless by comparison.

2. A few weeks ago, this space linked to an article about the then-undefeated Indiana Pacers. Though no longer unbeaten, Indiana is tied for the best record in the NBA at 9-1. And while Paul George will receive most of the praise for this success, Grantland's Zach Lowe writes it would be remiss to overlook the growing legend of Lance Stephenson, and how his jump in production could make it difficult to keep him in the fold once the season ends.

3. Every now and then, it's good to link to an article that has nothing to do with sports. In that vein, check out this remarkable long-form piece from CNN.com on Ted Turner. The eccentric former owner of the Atlanta Braves turned 75 today, and well into his twilight years, Turner isn't quite as vocal as he once was when he earned the nickname "The Mouth of the South." But if you have the time, this story is a must-read.

4. And here's the moment I know you've all been waiting for. Some of you may recall that after the Texas A&M game, a pair of videos surfaced — one of Sammie Coates epic stiff arm of an Aggie defender, and another of Dee Ford sacking Johnny Manziel on Texas A&M's final offensive snap — set to commentary from legendary WWE announcer Jim Ross, also known as, "Good Ol' JR."

Well, we've got two — yes two!! — different versions of Louis' touchdown catch spliced with calls from Ross' days as the WWE's play-by-play announcer.

(Note: I can't even count the number of times I've watched these pair of videos since they first appeared Monday morning.)
