News and Notes:
- Looks like Lovie Smith's staff at Illinois is coming together with both of his coordinator hires today.
- ESPN released an entertaining piece today where they broke down which college football coaches had the best (Harbaugh) and worst (Leach) playing careers.
- Twitter was buzzing, and no one was busier than Adam Schefter today with seemingly endless NFL free agent news breaking today
And now for the rest of the story...
Adam Schefter was shooting off 10+ tweets an hour with breaking NFL all day, including this gem. Heading into this season Osweiler had 30 total completions. Filling in for Peyton Manning and completing 170 of his 275 attempts for just under 2,000 yards and 11 TDs and 6 INTs led to this monster pay day.
If Lovie's coordinators shake out as projected, it will be the only staff at the FBS level with the program, and each side of the ball, led by African Americans
The protests at Missouri are having some ripple effects months later
This will be the most entertaining thing you read all day, guaranteed.
