The players will all have the name “ROCKNE” emblazoned on the backs of their jerseys, while the helmets replicate the leather ones of Rockne’s era.  The cleats also will pay homage to the era in which Rockne, also a former player at the school, coached the Fighting Irish to five national championships from 1918-1930.  In those 13 seasons, the Irish lost just 12 gamesarticle

The players will all have the name “ROCKNE” emblazoned on the backs of their jerseys, while the helmets replicate the leather ones of Rockne’s era.  The cleats also will pay homage to the era in which Rockne, also a former player at the school, coached the Fighting Irish to five national championships from 1918-1930.  In those 13 seasons, the Irish lost just 12 gamesarticle

The players will all have the name “ROCKNE” emblazoned on the backs of their jerseys, while the helmets replicate the leather ones of Rockne’s era.  The cleats also will pay homage to the era in which Rockne, also a former player at the school, coached the Fighting Irish to five national championships from 1918-1930.  In those 13 seasons, the Irish lost just 12 gamesarticle

The players will all have the name “ROCKNE” emblazoned on the backs of their jerseys, while the helmets replicate the leather ones of Rockne’s era.  The cleats also will pay homage to the era in which Rockne, also a former player at the school, coached the Fighting Irish to five national championships from 1918-1930.  In those 13 seasons, the Irish lost just 12 gamesarticle

He seemed ready to be a Southeastern Conference quarterback.

"I specifically remember watching him walk out the locker room after the Florida game and worrying about him as he walked toward me," said Andy Lock, a former offensive lineman at Missouri.

Young Mizzou pass-rushers pushing for bigger rolesSt. Louis Post-DispatchCOLUMBIA, MO. • They come from opposite sides of the world — West Africa and central Missouri — but their goal is one and the same. Franklin Agbasimere and Tre Williams were late bloomers in high school but now find themselves among the crowd of Mizzou players competing to replace departed defensive end Charles Harris. Williams, a freshman last fall, grew up playing basketball but reluctantly made the switch to football in high school.

VIDEO: Indiana hands scholarship to walk-on WR after singing school fight songNBC Sports: CollegeFootballTalkSome training camp traditions are better than others but one universal truth every fall is that coaches will bring up players to sing the school fight song in front of the team.

Young Mizzou pass-rushers pushing for bigger rolesSt. Louis Post-DispatchCOLUMBIA, MO. • They come from opposite sides of the world — West Africa and central Missouri — but their goal is one and the same. Franklin Agbasimere and Tre Williams were late bloomers in high school but now find themselves among the crowd of Mizzou players competing to replace departed defensive end Charles Harris. Williams, a freshman last fall, grew up playing basketball but reluctantly made the switch to football in high school.

Alabama has had its share of game-changers on the outside: Don Hutson, Dennis Homan, David Palmer, Ozzie Newsome, Al Bell, D.J. Hall, Joey Jones, Amari Cooper and many, many others. But, you’d be hard-pressed to find a player whose recruitment and commitment meant so much to building a signing class, a program, and now a dynasty, than Julio Jones. Joseph Goodman at AMG spoke with Jones’ primary recruiter, now-South Carolina LB coach, Lance Thompson about the enormity of Jones commitment. Saban and the Alabama staff knew it needed a supremely-gifted player, a difference-maker that had cache with his peers, one guy whose commitment could convince others that Alabama could build something special.

VIDEO: Indiana hands scholarship to walk-on WR after singing school fight songNBC Sports: CollegeFootballTalkSome training camp traditions are better than others but one universal truth every fall is that coaches will bring up players to sing the school fight song in front of the team. As you can expect, often times hilarity ensues because players either don’t know the words or are so off-key with the notes that you can barely recognize what they’re singing. Indiana coach Tom Allen joined in on the act this week by putting a few players through the same paces by having them belt out the lyrics to ‘Indiana Fight’ in front of both the team and cameras. The school naturally released video of the event on Friday, including a very special message at the end for one of the players signing: That would be now-formerarticle

Young Mizzou pass-rushers pushing for bigger rolesSt. Louis Post-DispatchCOLUMBIA, MO. • They come from opposite sides of the world — West Africa and central Missouri — but their goal is one and the same. Franklin Agbasimere and Tre Williams were late bloomers in high school but now find themselves among the crowd of Mizzou players competing to replace departed defensive end Charles Harris. Williams, a freshman last fall, grew up playing basketball but reluctantly made the switch to football in high school. He spent his childhood bouncing between Columbia and Moberly, Mo., but never paid attention to Mizzou football.
