Associated Press OMAHA, Neb. -- College Football Hall of Fame coach Tom Osborne is giving up his large skybox at Memorial Stadium, saying the Nebraska athletic department should sell it to someone else rather than have him continue to use it for free. Osborne, 80, coached the Cornhuskers for 25 years, retiring after the 1997 season with 255 wins and all or part of three national championships three of his last four years. He was the school's athletic director from 2007-12. "I don't know anyone who is a former administrator who keeps a large skybox," Osborne said Thursday. "That thing seats 25-26 people. That's worth money. I feel the athletic department should be the beneficiary of that box.
Would you support a college football schedule where Power Five programs only played each other? Alabama coach Nick Saban has another idea to improve college football. Saban told ESPN Wednesday that he believes Power Five programs should only play amongst themselves. And that a big reason for teams scheduling smaller programs is because of the six wins required for a team to secure a bowl berth.
The NCAA likes to remind us that it represents thousands of athletes and most of them will go pro in something other than sports. Most of those athletes consciously know that, yet their college decisions are usually based on what school will help them go pro in sports. Not Brevin White. The Lancaster, Ca., quarterback is a 4-star prospect in 247Sports‘s 2018 rankings, with reported offers from Tennessee, Washington, Auburn, North Carolina and others. He’s going to Princeton. White committed to the Tigers on Wednesday, making him Princeton’s highest-rated recruit since Woodrow Wilson. On Thursday, White appeared on The Dan Patrick Show to talk through why he turned down the SEC for the Ivy League.
