Tennessee Football: Why It’s Bowl or Bust for Butch Jones’ Rebuilding Efforts
Smith No question. ESPNs Adam Schefter reported Sunday that the 49ers are not counting on Smiths return this season. This backs up what defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said when he was asked Thursday if the star pass-rusher will suit up again in 2013. I dont know that yet. I dont know that yet, Fangio said. Smith, who entered an alcohol treatment center 20 days ago, was in the news again last week when he was was charged with three felony gun counts stemming from a June 2012 party at his house. The charges did not catch the team by surprise and there has never been a timetable for his return. Still, with Smiths troubles piling up, the team wants to make sure his focus is on his getting life straight. Thus not counting on his return this year is on track with the approach the team is taking.
USA Today College Football Poll 2013: Complete Week 8 Rankings Released
The Wolverines stick in the rankings but fell to No. 24 while the Wildcats are completely out. Nebraska becomes the only other ranked team from the Big Ten. Despite these results, some top teams saved themselves from embarrassment by avoiding upsets with close wins. Clemson almost fell to Boston College at home but ultimately kept alive their undefeated season as well as the dream matchup against Florida State next week. Still, games like this certainly affect the outlook of the BCS games, in which everyone wants to take part. Additionally, Week 7 saw the legend of Johnny Manziel continue to grow with a comeback win on the road against Ole Miss. A late touchdown to tie the game preceded a game-winning field goal by Texas A&M, keeping the dream of a national championship alive.
Electric Football, Invented In 1948, Still Alive And Buzzing
So in November, as 5-6 Ole Miss prepared to play rival Mississippi State in the regular-season finale, the coaching staff knew what rode on the outcome of the game. Robert had decommitted from Clemson, but to have a shot against LSU and Alabama, the Rebels would have to win the Egg Bowl and earn postseason eligibility. Ole Miss came through, snapping a three-year losing streak to the Bulldogs with a 41-24 win. Fans stormed the field for a rare moment in Oxford when the party expands into Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Among those celebrating on the field was Robert Nkemdiche, who by that time was sold on the idea of playing alongside his brother in Oxford. From a recruiting perspective, UT appears in strong shape with the 2014 class. The Vols have 26 committed players, and they’ve built a strong rapport with one another through coordinated visits and across social media. There is also an inordinate amount of in-state players and legaciesprospects who’ve had family members play for UT in the past.

Navy football vs. Duke: Mids no match for Blue Devils in 35-7 loss
In 2007, the NFL dropped its licensing for the game, which meant no more NFL players or team logos. Everyone here agrees, that was a pretty rough year. But these guys can manage. They’ve seen worse. “Video games killed electric football,” says one of the fans here, Mark Francis.
Kansas City football fans dubbed world’s loudest as Chiefs top Raiders
His bail was set at $10,000, Nashville police said, and it was unclear Friday whether Finley had posted that bail. Neither he nor his attorney could be immediately reached for comment. A co-defendant, Joseph Dominick Quinzio, 20, of Palm Desert, California, “continues to go through the legalities of the extradition process in California,” police said in a statement. Finley, of Bermuda Dunes, California, and Quinzio are friends of Brandon Vandenburg, one of four former Vanderbilt football players indicted on charges of rape, and are each accused of one felony count of tampering with electronic evidence, authorities said. Vandenburg is accused of taking an unconscious Vanderbilt woman into a building on campus on June 23. He was allegedly joined in his dorm room by three now-former Vanderbilt football players also indicted on charges of rape: Cory Batey, Brandon Banks and Jaborian McKenzie, authorities said. A fifth football player, Chris Boyd, 21, a standout junior wide receiver, pleaded guilty to helping cover up the alleged on-campus gang rape and was removed from the team. He accepted a yearlong probation sentence and agreed to testify against the four other players. The four other football players have been dismissed from the team and suspended from school.

A Guinness World Record official on site pegged the noise at Arrowhead Stadium in the fourth quarter at 137.5 decibels, as the Chiefs defeated the Oakland Raiders , the National Football League and Chiefs officials said. The Chiefs won their sixth straight, remaining undefeated, as they took down Oakland 24-7. “Every win is a great win. When you can win with a crowd like this, it makes it even better,” Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid said in a post-game news conference. “It was loud, I mean real loud.
Kiffin did not reveal details about the night he was fired. He said Haden was a great athletic director and that Pat has a very hard job. Even though he may see whats going on the inside and how hard it was to deal with the sanctions and a reduced roster, at the same time he has a lot of people to answer to, Kiffin said. So I appreciate Pats support over our 3-1/2 years there. It was phenomenal. Kiffin guided the Trojans to a 10-2 finish in 2011, but USC collapsed in the second half of the 2012 season. The Trojans lost to Washington State and Arizona State this season. We were able to manage through [sanctions] and have a great year at 10-2 and then it fell apart there toward the end, he said. Obviously, Im to blame being the head coach.
