Video from the press conference is below.  

If you jump to the 5:30 mark you'll hear athletic director Paul Krebs explain exactly how he remembers this playing out. Phone call by phone call, meeting by meeting.

 

DC catching a punt tears his quad

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive coordinator Mel Tucker tore his quad while attempting to catch a punt after practice recently.

We hear the injury occurred after Jack Del Rio encouraged Tucker and offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter to try to catch a punt shot out of a Jugs machine at the end of practice.  

Tucker is expected to have surgery later this week.

1st win in 29 tries, 1st home win since 2004

FootballScoop would like to pass along our congratulations to coach Elvin James, his staff and the team at D-II Livingstone College.  On Saturday, the Blue Bears got a double OT win over Virginia University of Lynchburg breaking a 28 game losing streak.  

The 28 game streak was the third longest active losing streak (D-II Lock Haven 35 games, and D-III Olivet 30 games).

Further, the win was Livingstone's first at home since 2004.  

We wish we had video to bring you because the win didn't come easy.  Livingstone had a field goal opportunity to win the game in regulation; but missed. Then in the first overtime, Lynchburg was driving; but the Blue Bears intercepted a pass in the end zone.  Then, facing a 3rd down, James called a quarterback sneak to get the ball positioned for a game winning field goal...but they fumbled and Lynchburg picked it up and raced towards the end zone...only to be dragged down from behind around the 20.  Finally, in the 2nd OT, Livingstone makes it's field goal and Lynchburg misses their attempt and the Blue Bears got the much needed breakthrough victory.

This was coach James' first victory as head coach (he was hired before the 2010 season). 

Congratulations to the full staff:

Elvin James - Head Coach

John Thomas - Offensive coordinator / Quarterbacks 

Malcolm Nelson - Running Backs

Reginal Smith - Wide Receivers

Greg Richardson - Defensive Coordinator

Gilbert Wiggins - Linebackers

Rodney Hughey - Defensive Backs

We knew every play they were going to run

2PM Update> Bob Toledo addressed the issue below today in his presser...stating that they came out in "3 new formations" and that the play calling "had nothing to do with" the loss..."We just didn't play good."

Original Article: 

Duke beat up on Tulane this past weekend 48-27 in a game that actually wasn't as close as that score sounds.  The score was 45-13 heading into the 4th quarter.

Was saw an article in which Duke safety Matt Daniels gave a lot of love to the Blue Devils coaching staff. Regarding Tulane's offense, Daniels said, "We knew them [Tulane's schemes and tendencies] like the back of our hands. We knew which routes they were going to run based on their alignment, their formation, what personnel was in."

Further, Tulane was only able to amass 55 yards rushing in the game. 

Something tells us that Bob Toledo and crew will do some self-scouting this week and pull out some new stuff this weekend.

Tulane travels to play at Army this weekend while Duke goes on the road against FIU. 

 

No TV Tuesday

Unfortunately, we haven't yet reached that portion of the schedules where we have Tuesday night games.

Whatever you do, if you like offense, do not re-watch the Monday night game from last night.  If you are a kicker and enjoy games which feature 9 field goals, then by all means re-watch that barn-burner.
