  2. by Solomon McLaughlin My first year at Texas Tech, I used to sneak onto the field late at night when the stadium was completely empty and just sit down at the fifty to take it all in. The past three years have been filled with huge moments. Though the biggest stages have mostly eluded our team we far outmatched any of the goals we set for ourselves at the very first meeting I attended. I remember sitting at the back of the room that first day thinking "Don't blow it. This is your one chance at this level.". I still remember that long ride up to Lubbock to enroll in classes. I was nervous the entire time. Dad told me, "I know you'll be the best you can be. Show them who you are." I'll never forget how surreal it was when we arrived on campus and it dawned on me how big this moment was for my future. I was always first in, last out at the practice facility. Some days it was hard to push through the exhaustion but I think it all paid off. I never got to lift the National Championship trophy but I promise to give it my all for my final game. It'll be hard to leave the field no matter the outcome and I'd like to take in the moment as best I can. Thank you Coach Acewulf. Thank you team. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I've decided that it's time for my new story to begin but I'll miss you all. And now, as I prepare for this next step, I find myself extremely thankful to this university for the greatest gift imaginable: the ability to see ahead and set my own goalposts. My goal is to become one of the greatest and I hope you guys will watch me on my journey and rememeber that you helped start it. Solomon

  5. Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Jamir Blackburn was arrested several weeks ago and faced several charges after admitting during a traffic stop to smoking marijuana. Blackburn pleaded not guilty to charges of speeding, driving without a valid license and operating a vehicle with a controlled substance in his system, according to Ohio court records. "I owe an apology to my family, teammates, coaches, the fans and the Bengals organization," Blackburn said after the arrest. "I made a mistake, and I take full responsibility for it. And it won't happen again. I can't speak on it because it's an ongiong legal matter." The NFL may announce a suspension.
  6. Sometimes, a quarterback needs to have the ability to motivate one of their teammates by getting under their skin: Saying or doing something to poke them in the gut and get the best out of them in response. As it turns out, that's what Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Matty Swift was able to do in order to get running back Mamadou Heard into the endzone for the first time in 2022. Late in the second quarter, Heard scored a 5-yard touchdown on what was, on the surface, a very well-designed play. But it may not have been just the design of the play that proved to be the difference for Heard. Speaking in his post-game press conference, Swift revealed that he had a message for Heard before the play, which elicited quite a few laughs from the press corps. "It was one of the few times I wish I was mic'd up, cause I had some choice words for Papa Buffalo, tellin him 'You better your fat expletive in the endzone," said Swift. "And he replies and he says 'Don't talk to me like that bro! I'm sensitive!'. I said 'Hut!" and as I'm saying it I heard him laugh, take the ball, and run it right in." "I feel I have to make a lot more people sensitive so I can get their supreme confidence and focus too. But I'm happy for him." One of the central figures in the way Heard's touchdown developed was rookie guard Noah Barney, who pushed upfield to put the finish touch on the play with a key block. "I'm happy for Big Papa Buffalo. He deserved to get that one."
  7. Following a day of surgeries, Saints' wide receiver Mike Miller is now listed as stable with an injury to his neck. He will miss the remainder of the season and the entire 2023 preseason, he will be questionable for week 1 of the 2023 regular season and probable for week 2 at a cost of no pre-season conditioning.
  8. A physical contest between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints slowed to a pause Sunday when Mike Miller was carted off the two minutes into the fourth quarter with an apparent neck injury or back injury. Buccaneers outside linebacker Derrick Martin delivered a violent shot to the Saints wide receiver as he attempted to haul in a pass from quarterback Aaron Devereaux near the goal post. Why no flag was thrown remains a mystery and no comment has been made available by the league. Martin made clear contact with the head of Mike Miller as he went for the catch. Miller lost control in the air and came down hard. Miller crumpled to the ground and was knocked unconscious on the play. The Saints' medical staff huddled around him for several minutes before he was eventually carted away. "It's tough," Derrick Martin said. "He has a job just like I have a job. Anything that he's not able to perform his job because of injury, that's tough as a player. We don't play like that. We don't try to injure people or anything like that. We understand this is people's livelihood. We take that serious." The Saints later announced that Miller was in surgery and more information would come out tomorrow. He will be out for the rest of the year at a minimum.
  9. CBS Sports announced today that they will be signing former NFLHC players Jim Otto (Steelers, Colts, Vikings, Jaguars, Ravens, Titans) and Rob Blackmon (Bengals, Patriots) as on-field reporters beginning next season. Otto, a former first round pick, retired after the 2017 season while Blackmon was forced to retire due to injury after the 2018 season.
  10. Concluding the Duke Blue Devils' (9-2) 24-27 upset loss at Wake Forest (4-7) Coach Darman and several players sat in stunned silence as Wake students flooded the field at the whistle. A tearful Nate Murrell couldn't keep it together in the post-game interview, "I don't know what you want me to say. My ride is over." Bryce Thompson sat emotional on the sideline for several minutes before making his way toward center field to congratulate Wake's quarterback James Betts. After the brief midfield encounter with Betts, followed by a short embrace, Thompson rounded up his team leaders including junior running back Chris Collins and sophomore defensive end Ibrahim Arrington to give an emotional speech. "It wasn't meant to be for us tonight but damn it this shit isn't over. I blame myself, we had this and we let it slip way. I'm coming back to you guys next year. I promise I'm fucking coming back. Our time is limited and I don't want to move on without leaving you all with something. I'm proud of all of you. Together, stronger, for the next season." Bryce Thompson will return for the 2023 season.
  11. Nike on Thursday dropped a new advertisement on YouTube featuring current Pittsburgh Steelers running back Chester Henson, Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Nick Hall, and New York Giants wide receiver Tevin Lattimore. The theme of the new ad campaign is "Fearless" and represents each athlete overcoming a challenge to come out on top. Henson is shown in a hospital before fading into a playoff win, Hall is shown winning a game from 21 down with 5 minutes left, and Lattimore is shown wearing a Giants jersey. British rapper 21 Savage provides the backing track. Reviews toward the campaign have been mostly positive.
  12. Dennis Abdullah's (31/ARI) 9th NFL season will be his last. The current Cardinals defensive end has announced he will retire at the end of the 2022 season. "I want to be remembered as a man who loves his family, loved all the players that crossed my path in my career, and, most of all, loved what God gave me." Abdullah, out of Ole Miss, was the 150th pick in the 10th round of the original 2014 NFLHC Draft by the New England Patriots. He spent 2014 with Patriots before moving to the Ravens for 2015 and 2016 via the expansion draft. He would later spend 5 years in Washington before finishing his career this year with the Arizona Cardinals. Barring any future starts this season, his career will end with 128 tackles, 1 interceptions, 18.5 sacks, 4 fumbles forced, and 3 fumbles recovered. http://cfbhc.com/wiki/index.php?title=Dennis_Abdullah
