Someone clue the X-Files music. There have been some crazy things to happen in South Bend over the year, but I think that this might just take the cake… this past weekend during the rain-delay of the Norte Dame vs USF game a fan spotted an apparent UFO flying over the stadium. I believe? Do you. [via]
Player: Cooper Kerns
Team: Kansas – Football
Charges: Battery on an Officer, Obstruction, Possession of a Fake ID
Arrest Date: September 3, 2011
Police Report: Damn this is a shame… this kid is probably going to get kicked off the team for simply taking a piss in public. A police officer spotted Kerns in an alley early Saturday taking a leak and when the officer approached Kerns did not produce any identification when asked… and then as the officer was trying to cuff him Kerns struck the officer in the face and ran away only to be caught a short time later.
We’re going to go Oprah on you real quick and give you the heart warming story of a pair of Missouri Western State football players, Jack Long and Shane Simpson, who saved a 17 month old boys life by rescuing him from a car after the boys grandmother got locked out on a 90 plus degree day. Watch them reunite with the boy and his family in the video above. [via]
Player: Jake Irwin
Team: Wisconsin Football
Charges: Disorderly Conduct and Battery
Arrest Date: September 1, 2011
Police Report: Defensive lineman Jake Irwin was arrested for his role in a fight that occurred outside of Red Gym (the on campus gym Badger students work out in). And not only was Irwin allegedly struck in the head with a rock during the incident, sadly shortly after learning of his arrest… head coach Bret Bielema dismissed him from the team. Talk about adding insult to injury.
Now this is straight up trifling. Here goes video of grown ass woman not only going in the men’s bathroom, but taking a shxt in it. And I dont care how drunk she was… she has got to know that the woman’s bathroom is 100x cleaner than the men’s. via BustedCoverage
The major news in this weeks rankings is that after the 40-27 victory against Oregon, LSU jumped up Alabama to claim the number two spot in the rankings… while the Tide fell to number three in the AP Poll, but not in the USA Today (luckily we’ll get to see who is really when the LSU and Alabama play on November 5th).
But that’s not all that’s not all that’s wrong with this weeks USA Today… for some reason they still have Auburn ranked in the top 25, at #22 after they barely beat Utah State 42-38 at home. The AP meanwhile dropped them out of the rankings, like were supposed to… so this week the AP Poll wins.
