A few quick notes from the Fulmer Cup front:
Northwestern gets in on the Big 10 Fulmer Cup rush with a piddling DUI charge for center Trevor Rees, pulled over for weaving and swervin' in Wilmette like a playa should.
Haters. Next time, Trevor, don't let them take you alive. (HT: Prof-fan.)
The tease of all Fulmer Cup teases may actually be dropping drawers at last. The Penn State burglary incident involving up to seven players should come to fruition tomorrow, legally speaking at least. According to double top-secret sources, two or three will face serious charges, while up to seven could be charged in all.
Penn State Players involved in burglary: all your brains are belong to him.
This could garner Penn State serious, serious points in the Fulmer Cup. We'd estimate that with three facing serious charges (4 points each?) and four charged with misdemeanors (point each), this puts Penn State in the provisional 16 point range, easily securing second place with the dismissal of a complaint against an unnamed Florida football player earlier this week.
Finally, South Carolina's Cory Boyd hasn't been exonerated or charged in an incident at a party allegedly ending with Boyd deciding to see if his handgun worked properly by shooting it in the air during said party. It allegedly worked just fine, frightening the hell out of guests and earning him a visit from the police. Steve Spurrier, conveniently losing his coachspeak manual for the 33rd year in a row, had this to say:
Spurrier said he does not think the players did anything wrong. "But I’ve said that before and (was) proved wrong," he added. "So I’m not saying it anymore."
Which he just said. But doesn't say anymore. I am a liar, I never tell a lie, I am a liar, I never tell a lie...(Android head explodes shortly thereafter...)
