C batteries.

A fantasy football-centric review of NFL rookies: Jeremy McNichols

It is a subscription-based service that goes over the rookies that got drafted. There are going to be many moving pieces to the situation down in Tampa considering Doug Martin still has to serve his suspension. So Jeremy McNichols still has an opportunity to get some meaningful snaps early on. Or he could totally dominate and just take the start spot. Thinking more the former than the latter, but you never know.

College football coaching under/over achievers

Some interesting info here regarding which coaches are doing better than expected and those doing worse. Coach Bryan Harsin clocks in at #42. Paul Petrino comes in a little better with #36. The highest Mountain West coach is Craig Bohl at #16.

Fake recruiting catfish

So this is becoming a “thing” for some reason. And Boise State even gets a taste of this stuff.

It seems kind of easy to just put together a bunch of tweets about getting offers and linking fake videos. And since coaches cannot comment on any particular recruit, it can be hard to tell.

But when you start pressing the issue...

These things just start to solve themselves.

So let this be a lesson to all of you: be careful about what you see from “recruits” and who they say offered them. Check out their profiles and who is following them on social media. Coaches have to be following recruits in order to Direct Message them. That is usually a really good sign.
