College football – This Just In

He also has four picks, 11 forced fumbles and eight fumble recoveries, as well as four touchdowns, two on punt returns and two on fumble returns.

The 5-foot-9, 175-pound Mathieu got his nickname for his fearlessness on the gridiron. In addition to winning the Chuck Bednarik Award, given to the top defensive player, he came in fifth in Heisman voting with 34 first-place votes and was the only defensive player among 10 finalists.

The team, which played in last year’s national college football championship game, announced this afternoon that their top player and arguably the nation’s best cornerback, Tyrann Mathieu, has been dismissed for violating team policy.

LSU did not say which team rule Mathieu broke.

The sports network had to add an editor’s note, saying, “This story was published prior to Tyrann Mathieu’s dismissal from LSU’s football program on August 10.”

Miles added, “It’s hard because we all love Tyrann. because the honey badger takes what it wants, and Tyrann takes what he wants on the field,” ESPN reported today in a profile.

According to LSU, the Columbus, Ohio, native who attended high school in New Orleans, has registered 133 tackles – 16 for a loss – in 26 games for the Tigers. We will do what we can as coaches, teammates, and friends to get him on a path where he can have success. The 20-year-old All-American ran into trouble last year when he and two other players violated the team’s drug policy. However, with that being said, we have a standard that our players are held to and when that standard is not met, there are consequences.”

Mathieu and the others were suspended for their team’s game against Auburn.

Despite missing the game, Mathieu was still a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, awarded to college football’s best player, as a sophomore. “We lose a quality person, teammate and contributor to the program. ESPN reported at the time that the trio tested positive for synthetic marijuana.

Said the Dallas Cowboys’ Morris Claiborne, a former teammate of Mathieu’s: “Tyrann deserved the nickname … We are going to miss him.”

It’s been said that Honey Badger don’t care, but what may be more accurate is that Honey Badger don’t play – at least not for the LSU Tigers.

“This is a very difficult day for our team,” head coach Les Miles said. Honey badgers are known to scrap with animals many times their size, including lions, and even tangle (successfully) with poisonous snakes.

College Football Sucks in 2015, At Least For Me And My Teams

This year with a good returning senior class, a better seasoned QB, and a possible Heisman candidate running back it seemed like they had a decent change. At this point in the season they are:

NUMBER ONE: THE UNIVERSITY OF UTAH UTES

Well I had the teams I wanted to root for and now all I needed to do was wait for the season to open. It was during the glory days of Urban Meyer, and Alex Smith, and there top seasons. An boy did it OPEN WITH A CURVE BALL. The fight song echos through my brain each and every game day and with the hiring of Coach Harbaugh it seemed to be only getting louder with anticipation.

The problem with this, is that none of them are my teams. In the beginning my teams were in the hunt, each could of have been a contender. To me there is no better group of men and women then those who serve our Country, and protect us each and every day.

Now as a PAC-12 team they can challenge for a championship each and every year. Usually I have only a few teams I enjoy, but this year I added a third one. Each team seems to control their own destiny, meaning they win and they are in. So without further delay here are my teams.

At least from this point in the College Football season the selection committee for the College Football playoffs have got it right. But the Cougars have remained an Independent team making it very difficult to compete for a championship. Utah would play Michigan head to head at the beginning of the season!

NUMBER THREE THE WILDCARD – NAVY FOOTBALL. Each and every Rose Bowl they played in my Grandfather and I spent watching them play. Their win over Alabama and other teams. More importantly he motivates and guides these men who go into active duty in the military and serve our country.

After I saw a movie featuring the current coach of the Navy football program I knew I had to follow them this year a little more closely. Oh, how the start of the season brought such high hopes for me. But the third team is always a fluid choice changing year by year. Even though they have one already. So hopes were high for me this year for the Utes.

NUMBER TWO – THE MICHIGAN WOLVERINES

SO I HAD MY TEAMS NOW WHAT?

Clemson – Alabama – Oklahoma – and Iowa

After living in Utah for most of my life I have grown to love two Utah teams, the Utes and the BYU Cougars. While I still watch, and root, for the Cougars whenever I get a chance, it is the Utes who I grew to love. My mother was born in Ann Arbor, so it only made sense we would have Maize and Blue in our blood. All back when they were in the Mountain West Conference.

My family all grew up in Michigan. Ken Niumatalolo seems like a fascinating person with a great grasp on teaching or youth the game of football and developing fine young men
