landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
Adam Schefter reports that Desean Jackson agrees to a 3 year, 24 million dollar contract with the Washington Redskins.
The link below is to an MLive article about Will Hagerup and what he has been doing to get himself back on track. It sounds promising and I hope he succeeds.He even spent time working in a steel factory and said he's learned to appreciate what he has.
I thought an important part of the article was the support he has from the entire athletic department. After his suspension, he had to go through weekly meetings with Brady Hoke, Dave Brandon and of course Greg Harden. He said all of these meetings including with Dave Brandon continue to this day. Some of the meetings with Brandon last 3 hours. This is a tremendous committment to turn one young man's life around.
I don't agree with everything Brandon does. You have to give him credit here. I think few people would expect the athletic direcor to take that much time out of his week for one player.
As I said before, I hope Will has learned his lesson and uses these tremendous resources he has to his advantage.
This is not an April Fool's joke. UIW is a school which has been playing football since '07. No, not 1907...2007. I think Baylor will be attempting to be the first team to score >100 in the past however many decades.
For those curious UIW plays in a stadium of 6000... in Texas. There are HS stadiums in Texas that seat 30K+.
Not sure what Baylor is doing if it wants to be a legitimate playoff contender, when strength of schedule is supposedly going to be a key component.
The University of the Incarnate Word announced Monday that it has scheduled a 2019 game against the Bears in Waco. The game will be played Aug. 31 in McLane Stadium, which is currently under construction. UIW founded its football program in 2007 and played at the Div. II level before moving up to the FCS in 2013.
Between 2014 and 2019, Baylor has just two non-conference games scheduled against programs from the five power conferences: a home-and-home with Duke in 2017 and 2018.
Canteen is practicing with the starters on the inside and the outside, mainly reps with Devin Gardner.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) April 1, 2014
Freddy Canteen believes he's the fastest player on the team, believes he'll be a real playmaker this season right away— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) April 1, 2014
It looks like Canteen has a real shot to run with the ones this fall. Especially after reading this news:
Canteen says he 'always' felt he'd be able to compete at this level. Very confident kid.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) April 1, 2014
Drake Harris says he's probably going to sit out the rest of spring with his hamstring injury— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) April 1, 2014
Desmond Howard reached a settlement with the photographer of his Heisman Trophy pose after his punt return TD against Ohio State. The photographer will transfer the copyright over to Howard in exchange for a cut of the financial benefits from its future use. The photographer's lawsuit against the other defendants for the photo's unauthorized use still remains. Good for Desmond.
Matthew Stafford recently got engaged to his longtime (HOT) girlfriend. The ring he bought her is gigantic. This impacts the salary cap as Stafford has requested to restructure for more upfront money in the form of a signing bonus in order to pay for this extravagant ring.
she might need an assistant to help her carry around her left hand from now on.
That's for sure.
