The Scoop – Saturday August 19, 2017

Saturday August 19, 2017


#TheGAChallenge is off & running…and a very high score has been posted. Entries are due by Wednesday at the latest. Get it!


We hope you enjoyed following along, behind the scenes, as two D-III programs (Rhodes College & Lake Forest College) provided never before seen #DailyDose videos. Plenty more action coming this week…

Recapping the week:

— James Franklin reportedly has himself a new, six year deal that will pay him over $7M in the final season of the deal which averages nearly $6M over the life of the contract.

— Portland State head coach Bruce Barnum has received “significant economic sanctions” as a result of an inappropriate relationship with another employee of the athletic department.

— Art Briles’ attorney says he plans to coach next season.

— Cal AD Mike Williams will step down in May 2018.

— The 49ers have hired Katie Sowers as a full-time assistant coach.

We all continue to mourn the passing of Frank Broyles. Please keep he & his family in your prayers.

We read the book on the Baylor scandal. Here’s what we learned.

An FBS head coach gave his players a 4 day vacation in the middle of camp…and we like the idea (in these circumstances)

An outstanding high school athlete (he wrote that), he chose to go pro in something other than playing football (i.e. he couldn't break a 5.0 40 yard dash).
