Mike Hull Out Of Senior Bowl Due To Injury

Well, this is unfortunate. Former Penn State linebacker Mike Hull is being forced to miss the rest of Senior Bowl week while he recovers from having his knee scoped a few weeks back. According to 24/7 Sports, Hull "wanted to show that he could play through the injury and made it through the first day of practice."

Ollie Ogbu: Rugby Player

I'm not so sure that the NRFL will ever get off the ground, but I follow their Facebook account and just noticed this post from a little while back. They seem to be going after a LOT of former NFL talent, which is a good move. But I'm worried that they won't have much actual "rugby" talent, and so the product on the field will end up suffering. I hope they still try to target mostly actual rugby players.

Big Ten Suspends Diggs, Reprimands Edsall For Penn State Pre-Game Actions

The Big Ten suspended Maryland WR Stefon Diggs for one game, reprimanded head coach Randy Edsall and fined the University of Maryland $10,000 for the unsportsmanlike actions before their game with Penn State this past weekend. Stefon Diggs struck an official in the face during a pre-game scuffle (to which Maryland was hit with a 15-yard penalty) and the Terrapins' captains failed to shake hands at midfield before the game's coin toss. It's an unfortunate situation for the Big Ten's newest members and hopefully it's something that won't be pulled again in hopes of creating a rivalry.
