Video: A 50-yard field goal to save the whole team from running drills...

We've all seen the situation a million times before. The kicker makes a 50-yard field goal, or the entire team has to run. 

Make sure you watch the entire thing.

Nebraska unveils new alternate unis by suiting up Bo Pelini

This morning I made the mistake of saying that nothing exciting had happened on the uniform front this entire off season before Air Force released their slick looking new helmets and unis.

Now Nebraska has unveiled quite the departure from their historic uniforms for their September 27th game against Illinois.

The uniforms in particular aren't all that exciting, but the helmets (inspired by Navy's alternates from a few years back) are something to behold in my opinion

...and Bo Pelini was the man to introduce the new threads! I know I speak for nearly everyone when I say that I can't wait to see this video.

After linebackers coach Michael Barrow steps down, Miami announces a staff shake up

Former Hurricanes player and current linebackers coach Michael Barrow is taking a sabbatical from coaching to care for an ailing family member, Miami announced Friday morning.

“As a proud University of Miami graduate, former football player and coach, it is with a heavy heart that I announce I'm taking a sabbatical from coaching this season,” Barrow said in a statement. “This was an extremely tough decision to leave my dream job. However, I have a very important family obligation that requires my full attention, and I would not have had enough time to effectively fulfill my coaching duties."

“Coach Barrow has always put faith and family first in his life and this is clearly a time in his life where family needs him,” echoed head coach Al Golden said. “Micheal Barrow is the very definition of a Miami Hurricane - having given 11 years of class, service and leadership to the University and our community. We wish Micheal, Shelly and their children all the best as they enter a new chapter in their lives and we certainly hope Mike will return to coaching and mentoring young people in the near future.”

The move has ignited a chain reaction within Miami's coaching staff.

Running backs coach Hurlie Brown will transition to linebackers coach, while assistant director of football operations Tim "Ice" Harris has been promoted to running backs coach. The 'Canes will tab another former player, Kevin Beard, to replace Harris as assistant director of football operations. 

Miami opens fall camp on Tuesday. The Hurricanes open the 2014 season on Labor Day night at Louisville (8 p.m. ET, ESPN).

Photos: Air Force has some slick alternate uniforms

This off season has been relatively uneventful as far as uniform reveals and new helmets go; that is until Air Force (who were one of the teams to open up camp yesterday) decided to spice things up in their uniform / helmet department.

The helmets vaguely remind me of the old San Diego State ones that faded from red to black, but these just look cleaner and more impressive.

A lot of outlets are already crowning Air Force with one of the best alternates in college football. I'm, a big fan of the new look, but I wouldn't go that far.
