    Could former Texas running back Ricky Williams reinvent himself as a baseball player?

    Williams, who has been doing work the Longhorn Network (that's how we found this gem), spent some time with the Longhorns’ baseball team last week and realized that getting back into the swing of things might be a little tougher than he thought.

    Williams, the 1998 Heisman Trophy winner, hit a couple good shots, but couldn’t get past the warning track.

    Williams was actually drafted out of high school in the eighth round of the 1995 MLB draft by the Philadelphia Phillies. He played 170 games over a four-year span with the Phillies minor league affiliates while he was at Texas. He had a career .211 batting average with four home runs and 46 stolen bases. In 1998, the Montreal Expos selected Williams in the Rule 5 draft and his rights were ultimately traded to the Texas Rangers.

    But Williams left baseball behind for a fulltime NFL career that had its ups and downs thanks to failed drug tests. But of the two sports, football was probably the better choice.

  • VOD: Georgia Southern prepares to make its 'Eagle Invasion'

    Apparently, it’s the year of the college football staff short film. While Arizona’s remake of Speed might not be topped for quite some time, Georgia did it’s best to create some buzz for its recruiting tactics with its short “film” titled Eagle Invasion.

    It’s a little over the top as head coach Willie Fritz plans out the recruiting strategy for his coaches in the state of Georgia before heading out in a fleet of really expensive SUVs. Georgia Southern is making a strong push to recruit its heavily recruited state now that it’s readying for its first season as a member of the FBS and the Sun Belt Conference. The Eagles had a successful run in the FCS, winning six national championships and producing two coaches currently in the FBS (Paul Johnson, Georgia Tech; Jeff Monken, Army).
