College Football News Roundup – April 6


A college football news roundup that includes Clemson showing off some major bling from its championship rings and Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts getting to know one of the sport’s best.


The Masters starts today, so just like every year, I am hoping that my man Fred Couples puts together a magical four days, relives 1992, and comes away with the green jacket again before riding off into the sunset. Since he is 57 years old now, that hope dwindles down as each year passes. Come on, Freddie!

In college football news, Miami head coach Mark Richt is putting his quarterbacks to the test in the upcoming spring game, Charlie Strong is already comfortable as the head coach at South Florida, and we take a look at what to watch out for during the spring games for Auburn, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Texas A&M this Saturday. Here are some other newsworthy notes in the latest college football news roundup.

Bling Bling! – One of the best things about winning a national championship are the rings you will receive that can be worn for the rest of your life. For Clemson, these things are quite shiny.

A picture of the jewelry surfaced on Wednesday, and the Clemson athletic department did not spare expenses.

FaceTime With One Of The Best – There are a lot of perks that Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts gets by being the starter for the Crimson Tide, but a new one has to do with using his offensive coordinator’s phone to spend some time with one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play.

“We’re running some of the same stuff they’ve ran, so he’ll [Brian DaBoll] call Tom Brady and ask him what his top five plays are,” Hurts said. “It’s cool because we’re running the same plays he’s ran.”

DaBoll worked as an assistant and tight ends coach for the New England Patriots from 2013-16.

Improvement On The PlainsAuburn relased sketches of renovations that will take place at Jordan-Hare Stadium, including larger space for recruits to visit and more club amenities for fans to enjoy.

The home locker room will also be renovated, along with a new press box on the southwestern corner of the stadium.
