Photo tour of Michigan State's $24 million North End Zone project

Michigan State opened up their new $24 million North End Zone project last night for the public to see. The new facilities will house a recruiting area, a new area to meet with the media after games, as well as a new game day locker room.

Overall, the details in the new facility are quite impressive, and the Spartans will now have a great space specifically designed to entertain recruits. Everywhere you look there is an interesting graphic, and the branding of the Spartan logo is impossible to ignore, especially in the locker room where the carpet is almost entirely covered in the Spartan head.

While I can't wait to see this new addition in person, it should be even more of a game changer for recruits visiting East Lansing as it shows the administration's commitment to keep things pointed in the right direction for the Spartans.

Tennessee has found a way to work Beyonce into their recruiting pitch

UCLA and USC are the two schools that come to mind when it comes to integrating celebrities into recruiting pitches because of their daily proximity to Hollywood celebrities...well you can now apparently add Tennessee to that list.

The Vols sent this mock Rolling Stone cover to defensive tackle prospect Shy Tuttle (@KingTut_90) with Tuttle's face in place of Jay-Z (bonus points for creativity). Tuttle wasn't shy about taking to Twitter to show Butch Jones and his staff his appreciation.

The tweet already has 330 retweets and 558 favorites (and growing) in a span of 11 hours.

USC Captain saves drowning cousin

Senior corner Josh Shaw was named a team captain at USC Saturday night. Later that same night, while attending a family social function, Shaw, while on a second floor balcony, noticed that his seven year old nephew who can not swim was in distress in the pool below. With no one nearby to assist, Shaw "instinctively leaped off the balcony, landing painfully on the concrete below." 

Shaw was able to crawl to the pool and save his nephew who is "a bit traumatized but physically okay". Shaw himself was diagnosed with two high ankle sprains which will sideline him indefinitely. 

Shaw said, "I would do it again for whatever kid it was, it did not have to be my nephew.

Heroic. Certainly hope Shaw recovers quickly and is able have a productive season on the field for the Trojans. 

Three and Out: Giant Spurrier, an interesting study, and Herbie's travel theories

Scott and Doug are out this afternoon, which means we have our very first All-Zach edition of Three and Out.

I: All HAIL BASED SPURRIER. Upon seeing an 85-foot version of the Head Ball Coach, I immediately wanted to do my own version of this.

II: I really enjoyed this from the Austin American-Statesman - a map of where Texas' season-ticket holders come from. Travis County (Austin) leads the way, followed by Harris County (Houston) and Williamson County (north of Austin). The biggest surprise to me was that the Houston area has more Longhorns season ticket holders than the four counties comprising the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex... combined. Makes you wonder why DeLoss Dodds agreed to play the upcoming Texas-UCLA game at Arlington's AT&T Stadium instead of Houston's NRG Stadium, especially considering the 'Horns already play in Dallas annually and now in Fort Worth biannually. 

In today's @statesman, a fascinating look at where #Texas season ticket holders actually live. http://t.co/LGGFJZTSPf pic.twitter.com/7TcLGCgMzQ
