SEC finalizes their scheduling format

The SEC has approved a new scheduling format to accommodate newcomers Texas A&M and Missouri.

The new 6-1-1 format will have teams playing all 6 of their divisional opponents, one permanent cross-division rival, and one rotating cross-divisional opponent, which is expected to rotate each year. 

Missouri's cross divisional rival will be Arkansas and A&M will face South Carolina annually.

When this format will officially take place is not exactly clear. The league still needs to approve the schedule for 2013 and the cross divisional games will need to go on for 12 years in order to make sure that each team plays a home game against an opponent within the rotation.

32 hours as a Wolverine

As a fundraising event, Brady Hoke and the staff invited a group of guys to the facility to experience what it would be like to be a Michigan football player for a 32 hours. The money went to a prostate cancer research fund.

The crew got the full experience of running routes, getting coached up by Al Borges and Greg Mattison, and even the opportunity to run out of the tunnel and hit the "Go Blue" banner on the block "M".

Overall, a nice idea to fund important research.

Quality as always.

Summer workouts at Penn State

Summer workouts are underway at Penn State with strength and conditioning coach Craig Fitzgerald and his staff.

In a Q&A with the Patriot-News, Fitz explains their weekly schedule. Mondays are their speed day where they do a lot of NFL combine prep, Tuesdays are interval days, where players have to make the drill in a certain time, Thursdays are a hybrid day working on both speed and conditioning, and Friday the team is split up into 12 groups and they compete with each other through an agility circuit, with the winners at the end of the summer getting a steak dinner.

The clip shows some good drills for resistance work on a hill, as well as in a sand pit.

Rain delays: The difference between football and baseball

Most of us have seen the hilarity that ensues during a college baseball game rain delay. If not, just search for it on YouTube and then sit back and enjoy.

During Oklahoma State's visit to Tulsa this past season, kickoff was delayed over 3 hours and a Saturday night game became an early morning Sunday contest. The game, which was supposed to start at just after 9 pm, actually got started at 12:16 am and finally wrapped up at 3:35 am Sunday morning with an OK State 59-33 victory.

What happened in between, was adversity at it's finest. Get a bunch of guys all jacked up an ready to go, only to have to pull back on the leash and retreat to the locker room.

Gundy and his staff made sure the players spent their down time getting focused however they do best. Many of them chose to put on the head phones, a few chose to educate others on how to use an iPad to play games...and all were kept comfortable with a nice PB&J.
