  In case you haven’t heard, a seller on ebay has acquired a number of autographed pieces of memorabilia from college football stars like Johnny Manziel, Jadaveon Clowney and Braxton Miller and is attempting to sell them on-line for thousands of dollars. The fiasco first came to light when rumors began to circulate that Manziel was paid for his autographs, which is, of course, a blatant violation of NCAA rules. At this point, all we know is that the same seller also has autographed memorabilia from Teddy Bridgewater in his possession....Continue reading »

photo – islandpacket.com   Poona Ford knew what school and coaching staff had made that special impression on him early in his recruiting process, but still he thought he should explore his options.  The hometown school South Carolina was a major player as was Tennessee.  Football power Ohio State made a big run at him as well, but in his heart, he knew he wanted to play for Coach Strong. “I guess I just had a feeling,” Ford said Monday. “The feeling you get when you know you’re welcome.” Their attempts...Continue reading »

  Waking up this morning, there was a little extra pep in my step. My drive to work sucked a little bit less than normal. No barking from the dog, no smog and momma cooked the breakfast with no hog. Ok, that last part is only part true – yes I live at home with my Mom, but she hasn’t cooked for me in like, forever, you guys. But I digress. The real reason for such out-of-the-blue optimism is that today marks the start of camp for the University of Louisville football team. The first practice is slated for this afternoon at...Continue reading »

After today’s press conference, in which Louisville coach Charlie Strong formally announced the addition of former Auburn running back Michael Dyer to the roster, college football writer Dan Wolken of USA Today had a rather interesting take on the subject. Dyer, who Strong admitted could have been drafted this year, was at one time considered one of the best running backs in the country, and Wolken suggests the idea of Strong taking him to help rehabilitate him is one of complete nonsense. Wish coaches who take chances (I.e. Strong/Dyer)...Continue reading »
