Not much spare time today...

South Carolina's Steve Spurrier calls out negative recruiting from Big Ten | Campus Union - SI.com

We don’t run into much of any negative recruiting around here as SEC coaches," Spurrier said. "We were involved with a player who was being recruited by a Big Ten school. They got negative a little bit with, ‘There’s a lot of crime in Columbia, the big city. They don’t graduate their players,’ which was completely untrue. They searched for a little bit of everything, but the player came with us anyways."

Penalties and defensive performance - Football Study Hall

Is there any relationship between penalties and defensive performance at the college level of football?

Nebraska has been penalized a lot under Bo Pelini. We know the holding and false start penalties all too well, but this last season they weren't as apparent as they'd been before. Defensively though.... here's an article pointing out that teams who are better defensively typically are more penalized. Hmmm.....
