TX high school RB has scored 26 TDs in 2 games

In full disclosure, this is 6 man football.  Honestly, we've never been to a "6 man" game so we can't really opine; but this guy has put up 13 TDs in each of his first two games.

 

His name is LaJordan Wilkerson and he plays for San Antonio Winston.

In the opener against Castle Hills Baptist, he ran 35 times for 591 yards and 13 touchdowns.

In week 2, against Town East Christian, he ran 47 times for 582 yards and another 13 TDs.

Maryland auctioning off helmets and jerseys from Miami game

Maryland strolled out in some special unis Monday night against Miami.  Now, they are looking to cash in on them.

Today, the university announced that, "Due to overwhelming demand" they are auctioning off 10 helmets and 10 jerseys "worn Monday by the football team".  

Bidding opens at $500 for the helmets and $200 for the jerseys.  All proceeds go to the athletic department.

We applaud the capitalism.  Seems like a quick and easy way to earn an extra $25,000 - $50,000.  

 

Oklahoma State needs a win tonight to get to .500

No, a win tonight won't get them to .500 for this season (the Cowboys won in week one 61-34 over Louisiana Lafayette), it will get them to .500 overall.

OSU's overall record is currently 520-521-47.  Hard to imagine that after playing football for 110 years, that their overall record would be .500.  Odds?

Under Gundy's watch, the team is 48-29.

Their facilities are pretty good for a .500 team.

 

Yes, this is the last time we expect to refer to Oklahoma State as a .500 team.

Reminder, OSU hosts Arizona tonight at 8 on ESPN.

ESPN & NFL reach mega-deal

This morning, ESPN and the NFL announced a new eight year agreement (2014-2021) through which ESPN will pay $1.9 billion per year for a broad set of rights.

Included in the agreement are:

  • Monday Night Football

  • The NFL Draft
  • Highlight rights for TV and ESPN.com
  • 3D distribution rights
  • Enhanced International Rights (including the Superbowl)
  • A wild card game option

In making the announcement, ESPN also took the opportunity to announce some changes to it's NFL coverage.

Sunday NFL Countdown will now be 3 hours long (used to be 2) and NFL Live hosted by Trey Wingo will now be 1 hour long (used to be 30 minutes).

ESPN is also rolling out a new show called NFL 32, hosted by Suzy Colber and Mort.  32 will be year round and is slated for 1 hour of programming beginning at 6PM EST. 

They also announced NFL Kickoff, a Friday night show scheduled to air Friday's at 7 on the deuce. A one hour look at all 16 games for that week.  Berman will host the first two and then Wingo takes over.  

For a little perspective, ESPN is paying $1.9 billion for the package above.  Media reports put the media rights package for the entire NBA season at $930 million.
