Hail To Links! The "So Excited!" Edition

Hail-to-links_medium

The first two days of camp are in the books. We are two days closer to the season opener. Does this also mean that we are two days closer to landing WPIAL standout Dorian Johnson? Possibly. He decommitted from Penn State last evening. That is not the only thing driving excitement for the upcoming season. What is, you ask? How about Ray Graham's return, conference realignment, BB guns, and more. Check it out after the jump.

It's not easy being green. So Ray Graham ditched his green no-contact jersey and returned to practice. He will participate in full contact drills when the players put on the pads for the first time Friday.

This is the last time we mention realignment, we promise. Chas over at Pitt Blather takes a look at the continuing expansion rumors. Hopefully now that camp has started, we will all have something else to talk about.

The offensive line shuffle. Only Center Ryan Turnley returns to the same starting position on the offensive line from last year.

Winning is everything. The (in)actions of Penn State's higher powers made that evident. Now, their former players are making the same statement by appealing the NCAA to get their vacated wins back. Vacating wins is stupid, it does nothing. Those games still happened, we all remember them. But fighting to get them back is even more idiotic.

One thing that will never change...college kids will do really stupid things. Sometimes these things will cause the police to draw their weapons on you. Sometimes, those college kids will also tell the police "Go ahead! Shoot me, mother (expletive)."

Television, the cause of and solution to all of college football's problems. Andy Staples takes a look at how television has changed college football, and how it will continue to drive change.
