this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Auburn football redshirt Freshman Jakell Mitchell (TE/H-Back) was killed in a shooting this morning at 12:25am. The shooting happened at the same apartment complex Desmonte Leonard killed former Auburn football players Ed Christian, Ladarious Phillips, and DeMario Pitts at a party in the summer of 2012.
Former Michigan QB Nick Sheridan has been QB Coach/Passing Game Coordinator at Western Kentucky since 2011, and with Willie Taggert taking over at USF he's brought Sheridan with him.
South Florida: Willie Taggart announced via press release this afternoon that Walt Wells and Nick Sheridan will join from Western Kentucky. Wells will serve as offensive coordinator / offensive line coach and Sheridan will serve as quarterbacks / passing game coordinator.
Congrats to Nick.
Matt Barkley will not be playing against ND this weekend. Max Wittek, Rivals 4-star, #76 overall, #3 Pro-style QB in 2011, will start instead.
ND now has a wide open path to the national title. I don't think that I've ever seen a worse team get so lucky.
Oh, and don't forget the worst case scenario: ND wins the BCS game and Ohio is awarded the AP National Championsip.
I'm going to go and find a dark, musty corner to cry in.
He still doesn't sound apologetic at all and avoids discussing the real issue at hand. He let a monster stick around and harm defenseless children. Instead, he criticizes school officials for attacking the football program. I realize he was elderly and PSU football was his life but he had no remorse for his mistakes.
There are very few words to describe this picture. I know it's off-topic but I just had to post it.

My first reaction to flipping on to the Big Ten Network was why?!?!
Then, I decided to watch it for historical purposes because I am that desperate for football to start.
