They have until July 1st to notify the league in order to give a year's notice. If it's after July 1st, they would face hefty fines that could become very large depending on what happens next year. So what's the hold up? Is Boise State thinking that the Big West is going to make a decision this week? Or are they waiting to see if the MWC's exemption is granted? Maybe they are just going to wait until the very last possible moment in order to keep their options open in case new information comes in. To their credit, that could happen at any moment.
Doug Martin impressing the Buccaneers (HT: Tbone)
He's showing flashes of what Greg Schiano wanted from him, to be a complete back. The Bucs staff has been happy with his skills so far including his pass blocking. Looks like Kellen Moore is still performing well for the Lions. The preseason will be a great opportunity to show off his skills at game speed.
