I never noticed this earlier, but I thought it that's pretty damn cool for defensive players.
And it shows us a side of the mild-mannered David Cutcliffe that we never knew existed before.
Ahh! Grim Reaper helmet awards.
Just look at him. He's too wholesome and too damn nice to display such unrepetant evil.

According to an ESPN report here, USC (Pat Haden) is going to smash the piggy-bank to get a big-name head coach. Thought this was interesting as we collectively ponder changes.
One industry source told me this week that USC is willing to extend an offer of up to $6 million a year to get its man. Yes, that’s more than Nick Saban makes (for now).
The Slate "Hang Up and Listen" podcast interviewed Ramogi Huma, the President of the National College Players Association yesterday.
He discussed briefly the Association's goals, the "APU" slogan, and how they generally wanted to attain those goals. Notably, he said they weren't advocating for a full free market, but weren't against it either. It's probably 15 minutes in and worth a listen.
- Stipend for scholarship athletes to cost of attendance
- Lifetime health insurance coverage for sports-related injuries

I know there are many video game players on the board. We also know the many complaints of our fair leader about the current NCAA Football game (damn anti-Chris Graham super linebackers with their great hands and leaping ability). Here's your chance for change. This company has a kickstarter to create a new college football video game to launch prior to the 2014 season. Check out the link and watch the video to see how this one will be different. For those that don't know, Austin is a center for video game production. I have questions about the ability to get the NCAA licensing, but I do know this is a legit program.
