Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.
Here is a list of some football truths my father forwarded me in an email; I figured i should share:
(1) What does the average Univ. of Florida player get on his SATs?
(2) What do you get when you put 32 West Virginia cheerleaders in one room?
........A full set of teeth.
(3) How do you get a Nebraska cheerleader into your dorm room?
........Grease her hips and push.
(4) How do you get an Ohio State graduate off your porch?
.........Pay him for the pizza.
(5) How do you know if an Alabama football player has a girlfriend?
......There is tobacco spit on both sides of his pickup.
(6) Why is the Kentucky football team like a possum?
....Because they play dead at home and get killed on the road.
(7) What are the longest three years of a Texas Longhorn football player's life?
........His freshman year.
(8) How many Oklahoma freshmen does it take to change a light bulb?
........None. That's a sophomore course.
(9) Where was O. J. Headed in the white Bronco?
....... Durham , North Carolina. He knew that the police would never look at Duke for a Heisman Trophy winner.
10. How do you keep an FSU football player out of your front yard?
....... Erect a goal post!
(11) Why did Tennessee choose orange as their team color?
........You can wear it to the game on Saturday, hunting on Sunday, and picking up trash along the highways the rest of the week.
Didn't see this posted (story was posted in DetNews at 1am), but in summary, Angelique has UM starting 0-2 but then beating IU, MSU, @PSU, Illini. Ultimately losing the last three (including @Purdue) and finishing 6-6.
PFT is reporting that Chris Perry is presently expected to rejoin his UFL team.
Apparently his mother recently passed away and Chris' roster cut was a formality since he has yet to report to camp. The team expects him to report.
Sorry to hear about his mother, but I am glad that his career is most likely not over.
So I just saw this article:
Apparently, a Houston WR who broke his leg against Marshall in 08 is suing Marshall and the CUSA for violations of rules on maintaining a safe playing field. I didn't see this play live, but it is readily available (Warning: a little graphic).
What's your take on this? I definitely think he's in the right. It was TOTALLY irresponsible to have that cart there. I can't imagine the circumstances under which somebody didn't realize that was stupid. On the other hand, I'm concerned about what this could mean for the future of football, and schools being held liable for millions in potential lost pro revenue because they allowed play when the turf was wet.
Eleven Warriors has the sketches of what the Uni's are supposed to look like. Man, I dont know about you guys but as much as I loved/still love Nike, I am glad we dont have them messing around with our tradition. Here's the link
