Default NCAA 2017 Football thread

Way early for anything of real substance to talk about, but needed a spot to post this.

Now, I absolutely hate the Ohio St Buckeyes as a fan...but this is just really really cool no matter who you cheer for.

17 YO scores a TD in his wheelchair on last play of the spring game.

Great move for Oklahoma. I kind of thought Stoops would get fired after this past season. Clearly they knew they risked losing Riley. They found a way to do it without firing Stoops and keeping him in the fold.

The NCAA season will kick off in Sydney again with Stanford taking on Rice on August 27th (26th in North America).

Pretty exciting Stanford is coming to town but it's too bad they couldn't find better competition.

Lots of rumblings here in Oklahoma that Bobby Stoops has some health problems that led to his retiring.

I cynically assumed there was an impending NCAA banhammer on the horizon.

OK...this just HAS to be considered jumping the shark.

An 11-year-old quarterback was offered a scholarship by the University of Hawaii on Saturday. Titan Lacaden, a fifth grader from Kapolei, Hawaii, took to Twitter to share the news that he had received a verbal offer from Hawaii head coach Nick Rolovich.

I've heard of offers for basketball players that young, but not football. Crazy. Can you imagine what that does to an 11 years old's ego? Will be a challenge to manage for the next 7 years!
