NIU Quarterback DeMarcus Grady Joins Huskie Basketball Team

1

According to an NIU press release today, junior quarterback DeMarcus Grady started practicing with the basketball team yesterday, immediately after returning from the bowl trip. According to the release, Grady was a second team all-area and first team all-conference choice in basketball as a senior and helped East Grand Rapids to the state finals in 2006. His basketball career apparently has the blessing of interim coach Matukewicz and new football head coach Doeren, but he's still planning to be back with the football team this summer and fall.

Crisis in MAC football?

+

Peter Schinkai of The Mac Daily says, "...this league needs to make a choice. Either it needs to throw some money behind its programs, start paying its coaches, building better facilities and taking proactive steps to keep good coaches in MAC schools, or its [sic] going to become completely irrelevant."

Football coaches' salary database

+

USA Today published their 2010 FBS head coaches' salary database yesterday. Nine of thirteen MAC head coaches made between $300,000 and $375,000 in base pay. Solich and Golden were higher, at $458,300 and $513,867 respectively, while Clawson and Martin brought up the other end, at $205,000 and $190,000. I think it's safe to say that Michael Haywood earned a pretty good portion of his $296,496 maximum bonus.

UK women back in the top 25 at #20

+

Can't find it at the AP, so here it is on Yahoo! It does seem a little disrespectful that the Cats are ranked behind a team they beat that has a worse record (LSU at 15-5), but that's why there's a tournament! Also, at 6-2, the Cats are second in the SEC, one game behind Tennessee.
