Former Ohio QB Phil Bates Rising Up In Seattle's WR Ranks

+

It's been awhile since Phil Bates name has been heard 'round these parts. (OK, except for when he and Richard Sherman tussled last fall. But it appears that could change quickly.)

In a nice profile on Bates in The Seattle Times, it seems after two seasons on the 'Hawks practice squad, Bates may be ready to make the next move. There's some nice quotes about how he's transformed himself into an NFL-caliber receiver in here.

Toledo Will Face Oregon/Host Bucknell This Fall

1

Toledo's assembling quite the nonconference schedule. Duke, VCU and now Oregon and Bucknell. These recent two may not carry the same name-power that Duke and VCU do, but Oregon is a rising program out west, and Bucknell is a solid mid-major program coming off a down year after three consecutive 25+ win seasons. The Rockets host the Bison.

Jay Harris Leaves WMU To Re-Pursue Rapping Career

7

Per MLive's David Drew, highly touted wide-receiver recruit Jay Harris has left the Western Michigan program to pursue a career in rapping....again. He first did this last year after committing to Michigan State. With the loss of Harris, and the academic ineligibility of Lonnie Johnson (a former Ohio State verbal commit turned Bronco signee), PJ Fleck's highly vaunted recruiting class suddenly looks more and more pedestrian.

Miami Football: Notes From Day One Of Camp

Dave Meyer of the Miami athletic department will be reporting daily from the football team's fall camp. Here's his first installment. We'll post the others as they become available.

Miami and Ohio Ranked 11/13 in Party Schools Standings

+

Miami takes a major step in the party school rankings and Ohio takes a few steps down as Princeton Review releases a list of the top "Party Schools" in the nation. As if we needed another reason for these two schools to compete with one another.

Dear ESPN, NIU Commit Nathan Veloz Is NOT a RB

3

ESPN currently lists NIU commit, Nathan Veloz, as a 6-foot running back who weighs 190 pounds. Veloz is really an offensive guard who is 6-foot-4 and weighs 310 pounds. Keep up the great work ESPN.

Minutemen Down To Six Quarterbacks

+

And then there were 6. As Dan Malone pointed out in a later tweet, he is a big target (6'7", 250). Quick analysis: Blake Frohnapfel has the job for 2 years, followed by Comis/West taking over; Stafford was never going to be under center. Of course, if Frohnapfel gets injured we're back to A.J. Doyle, which no one wants.

Toledo to Take Part In ESPN's 24-Hour Tip-Off With Game At VCU

1

Toledo will travel to VCU to face the Rams on Tuesday, Nov. 18 at 6 p.m. on ESPNU as part of the ESPN 24-hour Tip-Off Marathon.

Solid way for toledo to begin the year. At VCU, on ESPNU. After winning 27 games in 2013-2014, and losing only one starter from that team, the Rockets seem poised for another big year and nothing would set it off better than a win over one fo the nation's best mid-majors on national TV.

Miami's Strength Coaches Are Doing Frightening Things

1

...at least they're frightening if you're the rest of the MAC and were used to Don Treadwell's no-workouts style of S&C. Pictured is former Miami point guard Quiten Rollins, who's using his fifth year of eligibility to play defensive back for the football team. Rollins gained 27 pounds of muscle in six months. Twenty-seven pounds. Six months. And he's the SECOND-BEST transformation on the defense.
