Per Salon, the Florida Atlantic Owls grant naming rights to the GEO Group, a for-profit prison company, for a $6 million donation. The company has faced numerous lawsuits in relation to the deaths of up to ten prisoners.
“It’s like calling something Blackwater Stadium,” Bob Libal, the executive director of Grassroots Leadership, a social justice group that opposes private prison systems, told the Times. “This is a company whose record is marred by human rights abuses, by lawsuits, by unnecessary deaths of people in their custody and a whole series of incidents that really draw into question their ability to successfully manage a prison facility."
It's being called "Owlcatraz." Makes the Trohl Center look good.
As per ESPN Insider Quin Blanding is going to make his decision on Feb 27. The choice will be among his top 10 schools (Michigan being one of them).
Since he hasn't visited yet, I don't think bodes well for the good guys.
We were winning by as much as 10,000 yesterday and now we're losing by 2,000. We need to step it up!
Details of Cam's contract was released pending approval by the Board of Supervisors (e.g. rubber stamp).

Sounds like our favorite scatback is headed back to offense. From a Rivals spring preview article found here ($), I give you the money quote:
"He's supposedly going back to offense," Blackwell [ed: Norfleet's 7-on-7 coach] said. "They will use him in the slot and in the return game, and some as a running back. Coach [Greg] Mattison is saying he can still use him on defense and is making an argument to keep him there, but Dennis' passion is for the offense. That's where he wants to play, and from talking to Dennis it appears that's where he's going to play.
The rest of the article basically describes why Norfleet went to defense in the first place (potential for PT in the bowl game) and that offense is his true passion (duh). It also highlights his need to beef up his blocking and grasp of the playbook in order to see the field more.
Brian is going to cry tears of joy.
