Two Shot Tuesday
It appears all is quiet on the Buckeye football front on this Tuesday. Not wanting to jinx it, I’ll leave it at that…
1) We’re inching slowly but ever closer to a college football playoff. While four teams won’t be enough to satisfy our insatiable appetite for football, it’s a start. The Big Ten, though, continues to astonish me. Conference Commissioner Jim Delany said Monday he is in favor of the status quo (re: The BCS) but is willing to accept that change is coming. Why, at this point, would you even say that? Forget about the status quo. The BCS is toast, as it should have been years ago. It was always unpopular with fans, its methodologies for selecting teams were always flawed and it led us to the moronic Alabama-LSU rematch this past season. The sooner we get a playoff the better. Even if it means the Rose Bowl loses some luster.
2) Cleveland Browns mandatory minicamp got under way this morning in Berea. Everyone who was supposed to be there was so that’s good news. Quarterback Brandon Weeden reportedly took the first snaps with the first team in 11-on-11 drills but Colt McCoy did get in the practice as well. Why? I have no idea. Linebacker Scott Fujita told reporters he was in the locker room when now former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams gave the infamous speech. “I’m not proud of the things that were said,” Fujita said today. Fujita says he has no regrets about the past and is trying to stay focused in spite of having to miss the first three games this coming season.
