College Football News Roundup – November 11


A college football news roundup that includes a LSU defensive back out for the rest of the season and Mike Leach congratulating Donald Trump on the win.


I’m already planning my Saturday Christmas movie marathon with a friend or two. On the list are classics Christmas Vacation, Home Alone, Love Actually, and, if we have time and enough alcohol has been consumed, either Ernest Saves Christmas or the JTT classic I’ll Be Home For Christmas. It is a magical day.

In college football, Les Miles is happy with how Jim Harbaugh is running Michigan, our SEC Football Vibes looks at crying in sports and other subjects, and our #FashionInsider informs on the best uniforms of the weekend. Here are some other newsworthy notes in the latest College Football News.

Tiger Out – After undergoing surgery to fix a broken finger, LSU defensive back Kristian Fulton will miss the rest of the season, head coach Ed Orgeron confirmed on Thursday. Fulton, a freshman, had seen playing time in two games this season.

Ouch – FIU tight end Jonnu Smith will miss the rest of the season, and it isn’t due to an on-field injury. Smith’s girlfriend poured boiling water on him, causing him to suffer from severe burns on most of his upper body.

Trump/Leach 2020 – Washington State head coach Mike Leach is an outspoken man, so he isn’t going to hide who he voted for in this week’s presidential election. Leach has been trading texts with Donald Trump Jr., the son of President-elect Donald Trump.

“I congratulated them and told them that I would be his Secretary of Offense,” Leach told ESPN.com. “I know it was a crazy day for them, and [Trump Jr.] said the whole thing was surreal.”
