A college football news roundup that includes another Oklahoma quarterback getting arrested and Mississippi State’s spring game coming to an early end.
It is warming up here in Chicago, which can only mean one thing: people are now wearing shorts and showing off their extremely pale legs. I include myself in this bracket, as a long winter of wearing nothing but pants can get rid of the color on the old limbs. We will need to fix that as soon as possible.
In college football news, Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph played most of 2016 with a broken rib, Miami quarterback Jack Allison was injured during a scrimmage, and Alabama head coach Nick Saban paid up a bet to Clemson’s Dabo Swinney. Here are some other newsworthy notes in the latest college football news roundup.
OU-No! – Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops might want to have a sit down with his quarterbacks.
Baker Mayfield’s arrest has been in the headlines already, but now Chris Robison, an early enrollee looking to find a spot as a backup, has been arrested for public intoxication. The arrest came just 12 hours after the Sooners had held their spring game.
“We are aware of the situations and they will be addressed internally,” an Oklahoma spokesman said.
Short Game in Starkville – Mississippi State held its annual spring game on Saturday, but head coach Dan Mullen ended the game short after a brutal targeting penalty was called.
Defensive back Jonathan Abram laid a huge hit on Bennie Braswell, a running back. That was enough for Mullen to see, so he called the game.
Makes Sense – After first blocking cornerback Shaq Wiggins from transferring to Mississippi State, Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino has now lifted the block.
The move makes sense for Wiggins, as he has played for new Bulldogs defensive coordinator Todd Grantham at both Georgia and Louisville.
