FCS player who punched coach charged with felony assault

Normally in-game violence doesn’t result in off-field legal ramifications, but this is (rightly) one of the rare exceptions. Earlier this month, Tennessee State defensive end Latrelle Lee was not only dismissed from the FCS program but expelled from the university after he punched Tigers strength & conditioning coach T.J. Greenstone twice in the head on the sideline during a game.  Greenstone serves as TSU’s “get-back” coach for players, charged with keeping them from creeping toward the field of play and, in the process, keeping the team from drawing a flag. The unprovoked assault was caught on video and quickly went viral. As a result of that incident, Lee, who had been a criminal justice major

Bovada pulls Heisman odds as Baker Mayfield’s ‘too big of a favorite’

While Baker Mayfield‘s crotch-grabbing histrionics last weekend will cost him this weekend, the same can’t be said for his Heisman hopes — at least when it comes to wagering establishments. USC quarterback Sam Darnold opened the 2017 season as Bovada.lv‘s favorite to win the Heisman Trophy, only to be overtaken after Week 1 by Louisville quarterback and reigning Heisman winner Lamar Jackson — he was the prohibitive favorite in mid-September… only to see Jackson leapfrogged by the Oklahoma quarterback two weeks later… only to see Mayfield overtaken by Penn State running back Saquon Barkley — he was the overwhelming favorite in late October… only for Barkley to be overtaken by Mayfield the first

1. Louisiana Tech has struggled in one possession games. Why has Tech had difficulties closing out opponents? Tech has certainly played their share of one possession games, losing to South Carolina, UAB, and North Texas all by one point. The Bulldogs also lost to Southern Miss by 7 in 2OT, a game that the Bulldogs led by 11 in with less than four minutes to play. The struggles in one possession games can be attributed to a multitude of issues, but for me the most pressing factor is that lack of touchdowns being scored in the red-zone. For the season Tech is only converting 52% of their red-zone possessions in to touchdowns. Tech has not run the ball successful enough in the red-zone which has

Emotional Baker Mayfield upset he wont be captain on senior day but understands his punishment Video

Some may scoff at Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley’s punishment for Baker Mayfield *only* being not starting and not being a captain on Saturday, but it was clear Monday night those things mean a lot to Mayfield. The Sooners’ senior quarterback, two days after his sideline display at Kansas, addressed reporters about it all and was very emotional. It was clear that not being a captain for his final home game at Oklahoma, which also happens to be senior day at Memorial Stadium, is really tough for him.
