Calipari walks into a practice full of Stoops brothers and then...

I'm sure that there is a joke somewhere in this picture, I just can't quite put my finger on it.

In my head it starts something like this: "Coach Calipari visited a Kentucky football practice and ran into three Stoops brothers, and then...". Or maybe it's as simple as adding a caption to the picture. You decide.

The best submissions will be added to this article for all to see. Tweet them to @FootballScoop or @CoachSamz to make sure they get noticed.




Video: The marketing of American football in Brazil is crazy and awesome

American football is a massive industry.... in America. The game's greatness is slowly spreading beyond our borders, but I had no idea they were playing American football in Brazil until today. 

The Vitoria All Saints, located in Salvador, Brazil, have been in existence since 2008. The All Saints recently partnered with Vitoria Futbol Club, one of the major soccer clubs on Brazil's Atlantic coast. As a niche sport, football must be marketed to appeal beyond its small but passionate fan base, and we really like what the All Saints did here. 

For what it's worth, the unsuspecting lad here walking the streets of Salvador is wearing the colors of the All Saints' rival club. 




Dabo Swinney issues response to being labeled 'too religious'

 Last week an organization stated their intent to go after Dabo Swinney and the Clemson program for being "too religious".

Our article on it sparked an enormous amount of conversation, and today Dabo released a statement on the controversy.

We believe that Dabo's statement was very appropriate, he is who he is and that comes through very well in this statement. 




Video: Inside of an important team meeting at North Dakota State

Earlier this month we got a sneak peek at a trailer chronicling the building process behind the North Dakota State dynasty.

From the short trailer, this looks like a must see for every football coach in America, and we're really looking forward to getting our hands on the full version (and it eventually surfacing online).

Last night NDSU provided a look inside of their team meeting room as first year head coach Chris Klieman addressed the team, and introduced the video chronicling the journey of their program.

We all know that Klieman is an outstanding coach (just look at the success that his Bison defenses have had the past few seasons) but this short clip provides a glimpse at what the administration saw when they made the decision to hand him one of the most successful programs in the country. The man knows how to command a room and every guy in the room would gladly run through a brick wall for him.




Video: The Tennessee men's golf team has some fun with Butch Jones

Here's a fun video from the Tennessee men's golf team having some fun with Butch Jones. Well...kind of anyway.

This should start your morning off right.




Todd Grantham becomes the next college assistant to almost join the $1 million club

Todd Grantham earned $850,000 as Georgia's defensive coordinator in 2013, which placed him fifth nationally among all coordinators.

At Louisville, he'll receive a bump in pay to $975,000... and see his ranking drop to sixth, thanks to a massive raise for LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and a $1 million contract for new Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin.

The Louisville Courier-Journal reported Tuesday that new Cardinals coordinators Grantham and offensive coordinator Garrick McGee will make a total of $1.625 million. McGee will make $650,000, a $100,000 raise from what he earned as UAB's head coach in 2013.

In total, while Bobby Petrino himself will earn $700,000 less than Charlie Strong in 2013, his staff will be paid half a million more, up from $2.7 million in 2013 to $3.2 million in 2014.

Thanks to the Courier-Journal, here's how the Louisville staff payroll breaks down:

- Todd Grantham, defensive coordinator: $975,000
- Garrick McGee, offensive coordinator: $650,000
- Chris Klenakis, offensive line: $300,000
- Greg Brown, safeties/recruiting coordinator: $300,000
- Tony Grantham, inside linebackers/special teams coordinator: $300,000
- Terrell Buckey, cornerbacks: $200,000
- Lamar Thomas, wide receivers: $200,000
- Kolby Smith, running backs: $150,000
- L.D. Scott, defensive line: $150,000




Video: Illinois provides an up-close and final look at its spring QB derby

Throughout the spring, Illinois has provided an enlightening and somewhat groundbreaking blow-by-blow view of its ongoing quarterback derby between senior Riley O'Toole, sophomore Wes Lunt and sophomore Aaron Bailey. While most coaches keep their quarterback battles out of plain sight, Illinois turned theirs into an online reality series.

This fourth and final installment focuses solely on the Illini's Orange and Blue game, held last Saturday. The quarterbacks were split apart, with O'Toole and Lunt on the Blue squad and Bailey on the Orange. O'Toole had the best day of the three, but it's hard to know what offensive coordinator Bill Cubit thinks considering he is only heard talking to Bailey on the Orange sideline. 

Head coach Tim Beckman maintains the derby is still wide open, which is a great opportunity for me to plead that Illinois continues this series into the fall. Each quarterback has an endearing personality, and it would be absolutely fascinating theater to see the series continue when the stakes are raised four months from now.




Bemidji State using spring game to raise money for a player with cancer

In October, Bemidji State freshman offensive lineman Jake Krause was diagnosed with cancer, specifically Hodgkin's Lymphoma. In the six months since, the Krause family has incurred the type of costs a family trying to keep its son alive incurs. 

And now his football program wants to help.

Bemidji State will hold its annual spring game on Thursday night. Admission is free to the public, but the school will take donations to help the Krause family cover the cost of Jake's medical care. 

The Wadena, Minn., native is currently undergoing chemotherapy and hopes to return to the team in the fall.

For those not able to make it to Chet Anderson Stadium in Bemidji, Minn., in the next 48 hours, donations can also be mailed to the BSU Foundation, 1500 Birchmont Drive NE #17, Bemidji, MN, 56601.
