Corn Flakes: Injuries, Suspensions, Robin Williams

Michael Caulfield

Less than three weeks to go until college football season is underway. Still trying to get going on it. Normally I'd have picked up some stead by now with the start of fall camp, but it's just not happening yet.

Appreciation: Robin Williams, not a faster brain on the planet - San Jose Mercury News

"Good Will Hunting" actor used frantic comedy to push away demons, which apparently never left his brilliant mind.

Robin Williams is gone, dead of an apparent suicide at 63.

So many amazing things he did - so many movies, shows, stand up acts. What a loss. That he took his own life makes it even worse.

I'm sure people had their favorites - stand up routines, lines from movies, or the movies themselves. I couldn't begin to pick just one....

Allegations against ex-Ohio State marching band director 'absurd,' witness says - ESPN

A witness in the investigation of Ohio State's marching band says it's "absurd" to suggest fired director Jonathan Waters was dismissive of sexual harassment. Waters was fired July 24 after a two-month investigation concluded he knew about but failed to stop a "sexualized culture" of rituals, including students marching partially clad and performing sexually themed stunts that led to sometimes explicit nicknames.

When Dave Doeren took over NC State’s head coaching job in December 2012 following the firing of Tom O’Brien, athletic director Debbie Yow told Doeren that any player who committed to O’Brien’s staff was guaranteed a scholarship if he wanted it.

Huskers Ranked Seventh in Preseason Poll - - Nebraska Athletics Official Web Site

Nebraska came in at No. 7 in the preseason AVCA Coaches' poll. NU returns all but one starter from last year, when Nebraska went 26-7 with a trip to the NCAA Regional Final and a No. 7 final ranking.

The preseason poll had a Big Ten flare, as seven conference teams earned a spot in the top 25, while Michigan was receiving votes. Six of the top 12 teams in the preseason poll were from the Big Ten Conference. Defending national champion Penn State was picked first, followed by Texas, Stanford, Washington and USC. Wisconsin, the 2013 national runner-up, came in one spot ahead of Nebraska at No. 6, while Purdue was ranked eighth. BYU and Florida, respectively, rounded out the top 10.

Kelsey Robinson is that lone starter. That's one hell of a lone starter to be replacing, but I'm sure the volleyball team will be fine.
