Nebraska Football: Taylor Martinez

Nebraska Football: Taylor Martinez - Did you hear? Taylor Martinez quit the team! OMG! I saw it on Twitter and read it on a message board, and the guy who posted it said he knows someone who knows someone who knows someone who washes towels for Nebraska, so it MUST be true!

I also heard that T-Magic is a secret Muslim Kenyan Marxist terrorist, and so he'd be ineligible to play quarterback (or be President) anyway! Seriously, I got the e-mail! Where's your birth certificate, Taylor?

It's been a busy 48 hours for Nebraska fans, to be sure. Before Saturday, NU fans were doing the math to see how Nebraska could sneak into the BCS National Championship Game. By Sunday night, they were wondering if they'd be cheering for a new starting quarterback. And a new coach.

There are some lessons to be learned from the whirlwind that was this weekend. The first lesson is that we still need professional journalists.

I know we're in the age of the New Media and the Citizen Journalist, and in many ways that's a good thing. The Internet has given a platform to just about anyone, including yours truly, to opine

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
