Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
I am attending the Chicago Football Preview featuring our very own Brian, Sam Webb, and Gerry Dinardo. Does anybody have any questions they want asked?
Getting excited for the season hope you all are also. Closer than you think.
As we approach the third anniversary of the completion of the $226 million stadium expansion project, I have another web find to share with the community of some of the upgrades that went into it, as I have reported here periodically when I have come across the info on the web. This time, it’s on the PA and video systems. I'm not an audio or video technician, just a fact finder passing along perhaps some interesting information.
The PA system includes 28 Meyer Sound MILO 60 line array loudspeakers, eight SB-3F sound field synthesis loudspeakers, four MSL-4 loudspeakers, a Galileo loudspeaker management system with two Galileo 408 processors, and an RMS remote monitoring system.

For all those people who were convinced there was "more to the story" supporting the arrest of Florida LB Antonio Morrison for barking at a police dog...it looks like there wasn't.
So apparently South Carolina is investigating Jadeveon Clowney's relationship with Jay-Z. Who recently has created Roc Nation Sports (sports agency). The university is looking into the relationship and determining if any NCAA violations, including any that would jeopardize his eligibility. (Per NFL.com)

I know it's a bit OT, but this blog has always had a soft spot for Charlie Weis and his Decided Schematic Advantage. Even though he's moved on from Notre Dame - Now the head coach at Kansus University following coordinator stints in the NFL and Florida - he's still generating headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The capper came when someone asked about Weis' recruting pitch, given the miserable state of the Jayhawks program. Weis hit on KU's academics, its facilities set-up and the lure of immediate playing time.He says he puts it this way to the typical high school recruit, referring to players already in the program: "Have you looked at that pile of crap out there? Have you taken a look at that? So if you don't think you can play here, where do you think you can play?
Captain Frontbutt is hardly the first coach to throw a player or section of a team under the bus, but I cannot ever recall a coach blasting his entire team so completely. It's hard to imagine being a player and giving your all for a coach who has publicly stated such a low opinion of you and your teammates.
