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.
In another offseason, mostly meaningless ranking, Michigan came out on top of TicketCity's list of "college football's most engaged fans." At least this ranking wasn't just pulled out of thin air: there were criteria and measurable data. So, even if the methodology is questionable, at least there is a methodology.
TicketCity based the rankings on such criteria as attendance, ticket prices, face book likes, ticket prices, and twitter followers (evil genious Dave Brandon strikes again!) Here are the top ten schools:
|1||Big 10||University of Michigan||100.00|
|2||SEC||Louisiana State University||95.43|
|3||SEC||University of Alabama||95.18|
|4||Big 10||Ohio State University||92.94|
|5||SEC||Texas A&M University||88.91|
|6||Big 10||University of Nebraska - Lincoln||87.88|
|7||Big 12||University of Oklahoma||82.77|
|8||Big 12||University of Texas - Austin||82.11|
|9||SEC||University of Georgia||81.83|
|10||SEC||University of Florida||79.86|
Lions are looking to veteran free agents to help shore up their WR woes and have invited Stevie among others to workouts with them this week. I'm sure he could help them this year and it would be great to see him in action again.
I know guys like new wallpapers now and then, this one is pretty sweet. Plus it was tweeted out by Devin Gardner, not sure who created to give proper credit.
