Hail To Links! The "Russian Sumo Wrestlers Can Play Football Too" Edition


Hello all, welcome back to your daily links and boy, do we have an eclectic mix for you. Today, we will try to answer any questions you may have about new NCAA cover-ups, if sumo wrestlers make good defensive ends, how the BIG EAST is finding new ways to anger some of its new membership, and more...after the jump.

When you think of USF, what is the first thing you think of? I'm willing to bet that it isn't a Russian Sumo Wrestler walking on to play defensive end. However, that did happen yesterday.

The NCAA cover-ups continue. The caretaker for the Louisiana Tech mascot left the dog outside for too long, resulting in the dog's death by heat stroke. The caretaker then tried to cover it up as a runaway or mascot-napping.

Seriously, who attacks a Badger? Wisconsin running back Montee Ball was the victim of an unprovoked assault yesterday.

Hey look, the BIG EAST is bending over backwards to please partial members. To please football-only members Boise State and San Diego State, the conference agreed that the two schools would play four basketball games against BIG EAST members...Memphis, Temple, and two others.

Todd Graham is committed to having players declare their commitment to a man who has shown no commitment. This has to be doing wonders for his recruiting.
