The highly rated kid that was signed to play basketball for SMU, Emmanuel Muiday and has now signed to play in China instead due to amateurism issues and possible eligibility concerns, was a student at Prime Prep.

John Elway was an awesome player, no doubt. One of the best quarterbacks I've seen play.

But, if I saw the guy, I'd shake his hand, ask him for his autograph and if he'd take a picture with me, then I'd give him a swift kick to the groin on behalf of all Browns fans. It would only be right.

I saw Caliendo live a few years back. He does segments with each of his impressions and then for his 'grand finale' he had conversations between the characters. He'd go from Robin Williams, to George W. Bush, to Andy Rooney, to Morgan Freeman, to Bill Clinton, to Jerry Seinfeld and so many more. So funny.

That's what my grandma always said. She had to be home to watch "her stories" so she would plan her day around them.

Oh man, the fumbles...his fumble-itis made me nervous every time he touched the ball.

The tourney started on Thursday with a play-in game on Wednesday, and it looks like the games are over for today (saturday). Not sure if there are games tomorrow.

Here's the official site. Looks like they have streaming from their site when games are being played. They also have box scores and stats.

I love how the article's source is 'Anonymous' and then when you read the comments, all of them are made by 'Anonymous'. There is so much anonymity going on with that article it's hilarious.

The bad thing about football is there are only a few options for a kid who goes undrafted. What is there, Canada and multiple arena leagues? Basketball players can go overseas and earn a pretty good paycheck or try to earn their way in the NBDL. I know some guys who weren't that good mid-major college players who've had decent runs playing basketball overeseas. The opportunities for a basketball player are almost endless cause almost every country has leagues.

If I'm understanding what Saban's saying, and there's gonna be a cap on draft grades, is it necessary to get a draft grade for a kid to declare? I mean did South Carolina really need a grade for Clowney? Is there gonna be a cap for the number of grades or the number of kids that can declare early or both?

Musburger got bumped to the SEC network and will be doing games with Jesse Palmer this season, not the prime time ABC/ESPN slot with Herbstreit like in years past.

Comment 16 Jul 2014

Well, the perception already is that the SEC is better than the B1G (which is hard to argue), so a team going through an SEC schedule will more than likely get the benefit of the doubt against a B1G team. Which sucks, but there's not a whole lot that can be done about it.

It's not a bad idea and it's been kicked around before, but I doubt it will ever happen.

From what I hear, Thad and/or Gene Smith aren't interested. Supposedly they don't feel like it would benefit Ohio State. And Thad won't play in Cincy. In order for something like this to take place or even just head to head match-ups with Ohio teams, OSU wants them to be played in front of a Buckeye-friendly crowd, which would mean Columbus or Cleveland.

I'm pretty surprised you didn't see this coming. Down here in SEC country ever since the playoff format was kicked around and then announced, the thought has been that multiple SEC teams will be in the top 4 each year. Heck, there are some who believe 3 of the 4 teams could be from one conference.
