The Baltimore Sun is reporting the Ravens have cut Ball State record breaking quarterback Keith Wenning.

No Lynch for 6 in Chicago

+

In a move that is sure to make Bears fans and fans of the #MACtion sad, former NIU QB and Heisman finalist Jordan Lynch, converted to running back in training camp, was left off the 53-man roster before the 4 p.m. Saturday deadline. It seems that he will be waived by the Bears, which means a possibility of being picked up by them for their practice squad if he clears, or by another team for their 53-man or practice squad.

LaVon Brazill Signed To the Toronto Argonauts' Practice Roster

+

This is not the way you want to see your career trending. A few months ago former Ohio wide receiver LaVon Brazill seemed to be on the come up in the Indianapolis Colts' system as a possible third or second option for Andrew Luck this fall. But after violating the league's substance abuse policy for a second time, he was hit with a year-long suspension. Now he's on the practice squad of a CFL team.

Ranking College Football Coaches By Playing Career

+

Over at CBS Sports Tony Moss hasn't quite gotten out of the off-season filler content. Today he released a random rankings post, but while it may be meaningless, it's one of the more interesting rankings I've seen in awhile: He ranked all 128 FBS head football coaches by their playing careers.

There is an issue with this: He unfairly weights attending an FBS program (and in some cases barely seeing any action) over stand-out All-American careers at FCS or lower programs. But still, it's about the only way we'll ever see two MAC coaches ranked among the Top 10 in the nation.

P.J. Fleck, No. 8, and Frank Solich, No. 7, lead the MAC in these rankings having had standout performances at NIU and Nebraska respectively.

Who was the lowest ranked coach on this list? Pete Lembo who played four seasons at Division III Georgetown (see what I mean about Moss' knock against players from smaller programs?).
