Junior college tackle Jermaine Eluemunor may want to lay low for a few weeks, find a safe house...

JUCO tackle on Arkansas: "I would not recommend anyone going there"

One of the centerpieces of the upcoming Arkansas recruiting class was JUCO offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor, a 4-star prospect out of Scranton (Pa.) Lackawanna College. He's arguably the top JUCO tackle in the class and at 6'6 and 300 pounds has the size to step in and play immediately.

Unfortunately for Arkansas, Texas A&M also noticed Eluemunor and brought him to campus to check things out, and lo and behold, Eluemunor flipped his commitment to A&M. That did not sit will with Arkansas fans, to say the least:

Arkansas fans move on damn! I would not recommend anyone going there after the tweets I have received from mad fans smh death wishes really?

That tweet has since been deleted, which is probably the kind approach, but just in case it needed to be said: at no point should you ever, ever, ever harass an athlete on Twitter. Or anyone else. Don't harass people under any circumstances, period.

Oliver Luck emerging as Texas AD candidate

Over at Burnt Orange Nation, the news is that Oliver Luck is working his way into place as the top candidate to replace DeLoss Dodds as Texas' director of athletics. Luck is currently the AD at West Virginia (and the father of Andrew Luck, whom you may have heard of) and though he has not officially interviewed at Texas, he has apparently passed the third-party vetting process; after that, the interview is virtually a formality. Luck's business background excites Texas boosters, which is good, because if there's one thing that athletic department's been needing it's more money.

Texas Tech unveils new alternate unis...

Check out Texas Tech's new "Never Quit" uniforms, a special design by Under Armour in support of the Lone Survivor Foundation. In addition to looking sharp, the uniforms will be auctioned off with the proceeds benefiting the foundation that aids wounded veterans and their families.

...and so does Houston

Houston's approach to the alternate uniform game was ever so slightly more light-hearted, as head coach Tony Levine unveiled the team's new black uniforms for Halloween, but not before having a little bit of fun.

My review: 10/10 idea, 6/10 execution. It was funny that the mannequin fell over, don't get me wrong, but it would have been nicer to see the terrible fake uniform just sit there while the life gets sucked out of that meeting room. THEN you hit them with the sharp real uniforms.

I should be a prank consultant for college football teams.
