Jeff Monken and bringing the Triple Option to the Big 12 does intrigue some connected KU folks I've heard from in the past 12 hours. Said one: "We win 6-7 games a year they’d build a statue of him. Hell, we have a street named after a coach we fired twice."

This is an important column by @timkawakami ... please read it:

Who are the best coaches in college football? The first two names--Saban and Dabo--are obvious. After that, it gets pretty murky. (Get The Athletic for $1/month)

Sad to wake up to the news that Howard Schnellenberger passed away. He absolutely belongs in the CFB Hall of Fame, and it’s ridiculous the NFF never inducted him. @CanesFootball  wouldn’t have won 5 national titles—or even still existed if not for him:

Congrats to @MyronRolle  who has been announced as one of four members in the 2021 CoSIDA Academic All-America Hall of Fame class. Rolle graduated from #FSU  in 2 1/2 years. He went on to a residency in neurosurgery at Mass. General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

Spoke to an OSU source abt rumors questioning Justin Fields work ethic:“That couldn’t be further from the truth. If anyone couldve opted out & still got drafted high, it was him.He stayed & worked hard on his craft.He goes vegan to maintain his body.He’s the ultimate competitor."

As entertaining a college basketball game as I've ever seen. Hats off to UCLA and Gonzaga for putting on such a show.

“You don’t pull enough rope to be smokin’ that dope.” So many terrific stories in this piece about Barry Alvarez by @jessetemple :

A few months back the NFL told him he was likely a 4th or 5th RDer if he left Kentucky early. Now it sounds like he may go 1st RD. This is the amazing story of @UKFootball  LB Jamin Davis, the fastest-rising prospect in this year’s draft:

Rutgers just landed a commitment from QB Gavin Wimsatt, a Top 100 recruit. Rutgers has the nation's No. 6 class in the country right now--Rutgers. It's still early, but pretty remarkable what Greg Schiano and his staff are doing.


When Tom Brady played--and won--his first Super Bowl in 2002, Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen were both in kindergarten. Crazy.

BREAKING: The Big Ten presidents have voted to postpone the 2020 college football season with hopes of playing in the spring, per sources.

BREAKING Butch Jones is out as #Vols  head coach, source tells me. He just informed his staff.

LeBron's Finals averages this year: 34 ppg, 12 rebs, 10 assts. Shot 56% from the field and 39% from 3. Can't expect one guy to do much more.

SOURCE: Big Ten coaches are meeting on a call right now. Am told "it's a real possibility" that the Big Ten may try to reverse course and play later this fall.

BREAKING: #SouthCarolina  has parted ways with Will Muschamp, per sources.

SOURCES: The Big 12 presidents have decided to continue on to keep playing this season and are expected to have a revised schedule already in the works. @SoonerScoop  was first to report the news.

BREAKING: #OU  assistant Shane Beamer, son of VaTech legend Frank Beamer is expected to become the next head coach at South Carolina, per sources. The 43-year-old Beamer was a former Gamecocks assistant and is very popular with the former players.

The great @alonzohighsmith  explaining “swag” might be the best football quote I’ve heard in years ?
