Eagles to Interview O'Brien

Of note from the article: The Eagles, Cardinals and Browns all intend to interview O'Brien. The Patriot News reports that Penn State is preparing an offer to keep O'Brien in Happy Valley, perhaps in the form of a salary increase.

Penn State have 5 champions and posted a combined 97 - 34 record with 23 pins. On a side note, did anybody see MRob's hit on Chicago's Jennings yesterday? I've been looking for video of it all morning but haven't found it.

Ode to O'Brien

NW to have Naptime before Nebraska game.

3

Fitzgerald almost could not believe he agreed to it. "Unbelievable," he said. "This is what I get paid to do. Seriously. Create nap time. It's pathetic." A snooze-in at the team hotel six hours before kickoff? Quarterback Kain Colter loves the idea. "We'll wake up, have our pregame meal, do our mental things and then have a mandatory nap," he said. "Those hotel beds are really comfortable and the pillows are soft. … (Then) we'll come down refreshed and ready to kick some butt." This is NOT an Onion article.

NCAA Proposed Kickoff Rule Changes

4

From the article: The committee voted to move the kickoff to the 35-yard line (currently set at the 30-yard line), and to require that kicking team players must be no closer than five yards from the 35 at the kick, which is intended to limit the running start kicking teams have during the play. The committee also voted to move the touchback distance on free kicks to the 25-yard line instead of the 20-yard line to encourage more touchbacks. NCAA data indicates injuries during kickoffs occur more often than in other phases of the game. There are some other proposed changes in the article as well, but the kickoff changes seem to be the most significant and similar to what the NFL has changed. I'm fairly certain these were the similar proposals the NFL made before settling on moving the kickoff up to the 35 yard line and cutting the rest. Either way, looks like some changes might be in store.

The former Ohio State coach, who resigned in disgrace last May amid a cash-for-tattoos scandal at the football powerhouse, was hired by Akron on Thursday as vice president of strategic engagement,—a position newly created for him.
