Weekend Links: Ball State Alum Could Be Next Insufferable Red Sox Player

Enjoying the weekend? Great. Read some of this jazz.

• The Boston Globe did a profile on Ball State infielder-and-maybe-outfielder Kolbrin Vitek. He discusses why he chose BSU instead of Michigan, where he'd have exclusively been a pitcher. But now he's currently finishing up a season for the Red Sox Single-A farm team. Bostonians love their utility men. Plus his name begins and ends the same way as "Varitek." He's got captaincy skills!

• UB Bull Run has what he believes to be Buffalo's two-deep depth chart. Soon thereafter, UB coach Jeff Quinn validated the accuracy of the QB position, naming Jerry Davis the starter.

• Don't everybody transfer from Iowa State to OHIO all at once. And that's exactly what they're doing. One person, year by year. First it was Phillip Bates. This time it's running back Beau Blankenship. When I said Frank Solich recruits the midwest well, I didn't think he actually made an impression on people already in college.

• PennLive's got a column on Temple's coach and coordinators, all Penn State grads. No way are Nittany Lions fans dreaming of them replacing Joe Paterno when he retires. Nope.

• Ohio State asked Northern Illinois out on a date (on September 12, 2015), and the Huskies said "OMG yes!" Something tells me they won't share a malt.

• Occasionally I write a column for my hometown Toledo Free Press, mainly on all things Bowling Green and Toledo, since that's what they really care about. This week I delved into why Ohio State dropped BG from its 2011 football schedule in lieu of playing Colorado.
