REDEMPTION The Texas A&M football team was visited by former Ohio State RB Maurice Clarett yesterday.

Clarett was released from probation after serving part of a prison term for armed robbery, and the judge ending his probation spoke glowingly of the change Clarett has made in his life. He has since worked as a motivational speaker, traveling the country to speak to young people about his life before, during, and after prison. It was great of him to come and lend his perspective to the team as many of these young men face temptations and situations beyond anything we could know.
HEY I KNOW THAT GUY Check out who's #10 on NFL.com's 15 scariest college football players. There's nothing to be scared of, honestly. Dracula was at the mercy of crosses and holy water, werewolves could be killed by silver bullets, and Garrett's weakness is being illegally held and dragged to the ground directly in front of corrupt referees.
LAST CALL FOR SPORTS, YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO HOME BUT YOU CAN'T PLAY HERE The University of Virginia looked towards the future and saw a gaping blackness, devoid of entertainment and filled with only the possibility of off season arrests and preseason polls. That fate is inevitable, they knew. Eventually we will all be cast into a purgatory without sports. But not yet, they thought. Not yet.
