Welcome to your Thursday. It sounds like this weekend could be the fall cooldown we're all expecting in the midwest. Heck, the listed high for Saturday in DFW is 70. It doesn't seem like a big deal much other places, but there will be at least a few people treating it like a 50 degree, blustery day. I have waited long enough for it though, and I'm sure some of you have too.
Yesterday at CN, Nathaniel had both his Soccer roundup and the Women's B-Ball TV schedule on the site for you all. Plus, some excellent news from the Team Jack camp that will make everyone smile.
At the LJS this morning, Darnell Dickson talks about how close the Tight End group seems to be to busting out, while DC John Papuchis talked about adjusting on the fly to Bill Cubit's offensive wrinkles.
Up the road at the OWH, Sam McKewon talks about Randy Gregory and his vision to get a Blackshirt.
If you had any hope Taylor Martinez would be a go on Saturday, well...

Now, there was some drama for Avery Moss and his public indecency issues on Wednesday.

But then, cooler and smarter heads prevailed.

It's been a while since Nebraska and Illinois went at it on the field. CN's Aaron Musfeldt remembered it well.
Ever go to HuddlePass? It's a nice site, where former players talk about what's going on with their certain teams. Barrett Ruud, the former Nebraska and NFL LB, talked about how to be versatile on both sides of the ball.
There will be College Football for the service academies this weekend.
Sounds like a couple of AD's are on the top of the list for College Football's Playoff selection committee.
David Ash is a no-go for Texas' game against Iowa State tonight.
Purdue didn't waste time in making some changes at QB for their bye week, as they prep for Nebraska next week. Freshman QB Danny Etling is now the starter, while Rob Henry makes the jump... to the other side of the ball to play Safety.
Remember the NCAA Baseball tourney and the College World Series last year? Where, every game was smallball and no baseballs seemed to ever leave TD Ameritrade? Well, the NCAA just did a study on what to do to make things better. They are changing the seams on the baseballs.
I tend to echo what Brandon Larrabee of TeamSpeedKills said about it yesterday and in this piece a while back.
My problem with changing the ball is that we're changing hundreds of games for the problem in a couple of dozen— Brandon Larrabee (@TeamSpeedKills) October 2, 2013
They're looking for a cheap way out of this. The problems only cropped up in the postseason where larger parks were used— Brandon Larrabee (@TeamSpeedKills) October 2, 2013
Then they're not going to fix the real problem MT @KendallRogersPG: those looking for TD Ameritrade dimension changes: Not happening.— Brandon Larrabee (@TeamSpeedKills) October 2, 2013
If you want to go back to gorillaball, go back to using the old bats. Otherwise, fix the postseason parks— Brandon Larrabee (@TeamSpeedKills) October 2, 2013
The MLB Division Series are set, as Tampa Bay keeps on their road warrior ways in blanking Cleveland last night.
Today's birthdays include Gwen Stefani, Tommy Lee, Seann William Scott, Neve Campbell, and Al Sharpton.
Today is National Virus Appreciation Day (Salt will be happy) as well as National Techies Day.
Finally, the song this morning is the final memory of a show that captivated a fair amount of you the last couple years.
Enjoy your day folks.
