Backup RB Wonders When He’s Getting Paid

May 14, 2007

Yusuf Salhuddin is a lot like other college students. He hangs out with his friends, goes to class, studies hard, and watches his bank account constantly dwindle.The only difference between Salhuddin and others is that he plays football for the Idaho Vandals. After busting his chops on the bench, he still is behind the senior threats of Brian Flowers Jr. and Rolly Lumbala in the depth chart. But Salhuddin is convinced that he’ll still be earning his long-overdue paycheck soon. Read the rest of this entry »

Penn State Spring Game: An Offensive Juggernaut

May 3, 2007

If what they’re doing in the preseason is any indication, Penn State will leave opposing teams battered, bruised, and bloodied. Already, any player on the offensive side has left unsuspecting defenses destroyed, dismantled, and unable to comprehend the destruction that they couldn’t prevent.

They were led in scoring by Anthony Scirrotto, who was tied with Chris Baker in putting up 11 points on a team – no, strike that – a group of people, because clearly the defendants had no organization in the attempt to repel the massacre. Read the rest of this entry »


Virginia Tech

April 16, 2007

Editor’s Note: In light of the tragedy that occurred today at Virginia Tech, our own VT representative proteus4994 shares his thoughts. We’ll be back with something funny tomorrow, I promise. But for now there are some things you can’t joke about, not even Frank Beamer’s neck alien.

Tragedies happen all of the time. Barely a day goes by without someone famous dying, or some natural disaster affecting someone’s life, or violent behavior resulting in someone getting injured and killed. And when these things happen, you see people posting messages on message boards and blogs that say things like “Our thoughts and prayers are with the friends and families of the victims.” Perhaps cynically, I always thought saying things like that were a bit hollow, and I certainly never thought I’d be writing anything like that.

I was wrong. Read the rest of this entry »

I said “polling” the electorate…

April 1, 2007

Recently readers of rivals.com may have noticed ads appearing on that site from the campaign of Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani. This is really not a surprising move considering the ancient ties between college football and American presidents. A young Ronald Reagan made a documentary about Notre Dame football. Years before serving as president, Gerald Ford was tripping over defensive tackles as an All-American center at Michigan.

Following Giuliani’s lead, H2DN has learned that several other presidential hopefuls are adopting their own strategies to gain the support of college football fans:

Carson Butler Fights For His Rights

March 30, 2007

University of Michigan starting tight end Carson Butler was recently kicked off the team, along with teammate and friend Chris Richards. Why? According to the Michigan Daily Butler and Richards attacked a fellow student for ‘no reason.’ Yet the paper goes on to explain that not only had the student asked to borrow an iron, but he had allegedly “talked crap” about Richards in class. I’m no psychologist, but those seem like just the kind of aggressive actions that could cause a finely honed athlete like Mr. Butler to fly into an uncontrollable rage.
