19 days. 17 hours till this madness ends...


It's not your computer, they are not doing a good job of mic-ing coach for these press conferences.

 

As of right now, Ranaudo, Lee, Cecchini, and Jones are all still Tigers.

It's one week till Fall semester begins, which means The Daily Rev is back to the land of the living. Looks like Rachel Whittaker is back in the top spot. Let's hope she doesn't have to break the news on any more violation investigations.

SATURDAY SCRIMMAGE NEWS: Practice focused on "short-yardage and first-and-10 situations"; running game was also a focus, though the stats are not spectacular. Miles is doing a lot of promotion of Z Lee, saying he's picked up the offense quick enough to consider skipping a redshirt; The QBs were not very impressive in mostly play-action sets. One had a long of a 42 yard TD pass, and the other threw an INT-for-TD to Peterson and it wasn't the one you're thinking of; A lot of outlets reported that DT Josh Downs wasn't at the practice due to injury. Although he was banged up late last week, he was actually out of town at a funeral; OLB Baker's jaw has already been wired shut to heal, and Miles gave an optimistic estimate of his return at 3 weeks and Jakari Gore saw limited work still hurting from a friday ankle tweak;

The Advoc ran profiles on WR Terrence Toliver and RB Michael Ford in Sunday's paper. Both are good reads.

The year begins with a loss, as soccer fell to Texas, 2-1. Next game is Sunday afternoon at home v S Alabama.

A few pay sites are reporting rumors of Elliott Porter transferring to Kentucky rather than taking the grayshirt.

Despite being impressive in camp, Ali Highsmith was dropped almost immediately by the Chargers following Shawne Merriman ending his holdout.

Harry Coleman is a Saint again.

*Checks again* As of right now, Ranaudo, Lee, Cecchini, and Jones are all still Tigers.
