The good news? The ranks of running back are so slim at UGA that the school will let anyone who wants to try out for the position next week. Seriously: anyone. Regardless of whether you are old, young, in-shape or built like a bowling ball made out of Jello. They’re really desperate. Just bring your own helmet and a note from your parents. Who knows, they might eventually put your picture next to Hershel Walker in their hall of fame? (Our sources are telling us that the Weather Channel’s Stephanie Abrams has the inside track on the position right now.)
Given what just happened with Reggie Bush and the resulting NCAA infractions, University of Southern Californian running back Marc Tyler picked the wrong thing to joke about in this apparently drunken interview outside an LA club by the tabloid website TMZ.com. Watch the video for yourself here.
Fall football practice hasn’t even started yet, and already South Carolina has players getting arrested. Under university policy, Edward Muldrow, 18, was immediately suspended from the team for the underage drinking charge. No comment from SC coach Steve “Why Did I Come Out of Retirement for This?” Spurrier.
Not sure if this dude was trying to make a point about gay marriage or just thought he looked smashing in white. Either way, he got arrested when he ran out onto the file during the July 16, 2011 Atlanta Braves vs. Washington Nationals game. There was no way he was outrunning the fat security guys in THAT outfit. Maybe a mini-skirt wedding dress, but not that one.
Petrino’s son, Dominic, a one-time college quarterback, was arrested in Indiana on drug and DUI charges after being stopped by police. A statement from his father, Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino, reads in part: “Nick is our son, he is not a member of the Arkansas football team. As such, this is not a University of Arkansas issue. Instead, it is a family matter and a legal matter. My family will trust and respect the legal system and will not comment outside that process.”
Never heard of this Chad Reed, but he flies about 20 feet in the air, lands in the grass then gets back on the motorcycle and into the race!
Here’s more from YouTube:
Footage of Chad Reed’s spectacular crash on the opening lap of the second 450 Class moto at the Lucas Oil Motocross Championship’s Spring Creek National in Millville, MN, on July 16. Reed had just assumed the lead, looking to take his fifth win of the season, before losing control of his bike and flying upwards of 50 feet through the air. Despite the frightening fall, Reed came away virtually unscathed, and after collecting his breath, returned to action. After crossing the line in 34th of 35 riders, Reed fought his way into 14th by the end of the moto. His 1-14 moto scores resulted in fifth overall, and even more importantly, Reed was able to maintain his series points lead as a result of his incredible effort. Ryan Dungey took the overall win for the day. The footage is courtesy of SPEED/Lucas Oil Productions.
