The Bud and Brent Show: Should college football be banned? Will the Syracuse lacrosse team make the Final Four? |
Should college football be banned? Can it be made safer? Was Cole Hamels doing the right thing when he beaned Washington Nationals rookie phenom Bryce Harper? How can Hamels talk about "old school" when he's only been in the league since 2006? And how far can the Syracuse Orange lacrosse team advance in the NCAA Tournament?

"I didn’t even know I was going to be playing offensive middie that game," Eilers recalled. "I went out there and I remember (assistant) Coach (Lelan) Rogers yelling from the sideline ‘Go hard, be the man,’ so I went down there and shot it. It just gave me a big boost of confidence."

Florida State needs to make whatever move it can to secure its long-term financial future. Whether that is a move to the Big XII, the SEC, or leveraging a potential move to gain concessions from the ACC, I can't be sure.

"I can remember back to my senior year playing in the state championship in the (Carrier) Dome. Right before halftime, Bruce Williams got knocked out. He was out cold for a few minutes. Two players that we played with had multiple concussions along the way.
