Rutgers and Penn State announced Tuesday that a pair of inspirational icons -- former Scarlet Knight Eric LeGrand and former Nittany Lion Adam Taliaferro -- would serve as honorary game captains when the teams play on Sept. 13 at High Point Solutions Stadium.
Nice writeup from Grantland on LeCharles Bentley (former OSU Rimington winner and Cleveland Brown) who after some awful injuries has become a go-to-Guru for NFL offensive linemen. He's currently working with lots of NFL players, and Patrick Omameh makes a short cameo at the beginning of the article. Interesting read on how many NFL coaches can't focus on the little things and how as a former lineman he's so far been able to help lots of pros with many aspects of the position.
“I’m telling you,” says Brewster, who happens to be the center for the Jacksonville Jaguars, “the white one is heavier.” The white one is a Sierra Denali with some custom grille work that Buccaneers guard Patrick Omameh is pushing through a parking lot. Omameh will spend training camp fighting to be one of the Buccaneers’ starting guards, and of everyone here, he would require the least amount of CGI to play the Hulk. Bobby Massie, the Cardinals’ right tackle, who’s spent his morning pulling the maroon F150, isn’t convinced. As Omameh finishes, Brewster calls him over. “Pat, which one is heavier?” A hand on his hip, still catching his breath, Omameh points to the Denali. “I told you,” says Brewster. Pushing trucks isn’t a punishment. Each of the NFL linemen roasting out here has paid to do it. This is LeCharles Bentley’s O-Line Performance, a program started by the former Pro Bowl center in 2008. “This shit ain’t for everybody,” Bentley says, as he watches Steelers left tackle Kelvin Beachum pull. “This ain’t South Beach. There’s no sand here, no pretty girls.”
Day 17 features Paul Bunyan. I wonder if Brian is making the new Heiko grow a beard. I heard Ace goes clean-shaven when he's on vacation. Do the mgobeard regulations apply to Bry Mac? Is it true that we lost Jane Coaston to EDSBS because she couldn't grow a beard? These are the things that keep me up at night.
