Tyler Bray, The Quarterback With No Memory, Is Just What Tennessee Needs

Tyler Bray may be too dumb to remember his last throw. And that may be just what Tennessee needs in 2012.


Le'Veon Bell Wins Gold In Bronco Hurdling

Oh, you know, just 240-pound thumper Le'Veon Bell hurdling a Boise State defender. No biggie:

Reasonable bookmakers would have made betting the under on 0.5 hurdles of large men for Bell this year a no-win proposition, so let's hope someone actually did make that bet. (GIF via Mocksession.)

Michigan State went on to score on this drive, their first of the 2012 season, with Bell running the ball eight times for 35 yards and plunging in for a touchdown from a yard out. The score on the board is 7-0, Sparty, but the style point tally is far more lopsided.

Four Boise State Players Suspended Vs. Michigan State

Four Boise State players have been suspended for the Broncos' opener against Michigan State, according to Brian Murphy of the Idaho Statesman.

Chris Roberson, a three-year starter at long snapper is the most notable suspension. Joining him will be third-string quarterback Jimmy Laughrea, reserve wide receiver Dallas Burroughs and third-string tailback Jay Ajayi. The quartet were suspended for unspecified team-rules violations

Ajayi is missing the game as a result of his suspension from the MAACO Bowl last season. In December, the redshirt freshman pled guilty to misdemeanor petty theft. He is expected back for the Broncos' September 15th matchup against Miami of Ohio.

Roberson will be replaced at long-snapper on Friday night by sophomore Kevin Keane, a walk-on transfer from Ohio Wesleyan.
