Happy Friday, everyone!
Let’s kick-off the second Friday of the month with some news and links from football world, starting with Julian Edelman of the New England Patriots.
Edelman – has you probably learned yesterday – is fighting a four-game suspension for PED use. But as Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe writes in today’s column, “it was a big win for head coach Bill Belichick.”
The Obnoxious Sports Fan of the Boston Herald doesn’t seem too concerned about losing Edelman for the first four games – again, pending he is suspended for the team’s first four games. He is already predicting a monster game against the Indianapolis Colts.
MLive.com highlighted 11 high school football players that have verbally committed to play for the Michigan Wolverines in 2019.
As noted on Pro Football Talk, President Donald Trump is asking NFL players to recommend people for pardons.
The great Terrell Owens apparently made a statement yesterday about not attending this summer’s Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement in Canton, Ohio. Owens’ decision seem unprecedented, according to a story from NFL.com.
Per various reports, six-man football has been added in South Dakota – it will officially begin next school year (2019). What is six-man football: it allows teams to play six players instead of the traditional 11.
Finally, who has the toughest non-conference schedule in NCAA Football? Let’s go with the Pittsburg Panthers, per a breakdown from ESPN.com.
