Ancient Remains Israel

Ancient Remains Israel - The evidence of the oldest living humans on earth may have been discovered in Israel. Archaeologists state they may have found evidence of the oldest existence of modern humans on earth. A Tel Aviv University team excavating a cave in central Israel stated Monday that they found teeth estimated to be at least 400,000 years old.

Up until the find in Israel, the earliest human remains were found in Ethiopia and estimated to be 200,000 years old. Archaeologist Avi Gopher said the further research was needed to validate the claim that the teeth are indeed that old. If the claim holds truth, the discovery would change “the whole picture of evolution.” Stated Gopher.

Up until now, the accepted scientific theory of evolution states that Homo sapiens originated in Africa and migrated outward about 80 thousand years ago. Sir Paul MellarsPaul Mellars, a prehistory expert at Cambridge University stated that the find is “important” but it is premature to say that the remains are from modern humans. Mellars stated that the teeth are more likely from ancient relatives of Homo sapiens such as the Neanderthals or their ancestors.

The teeth were discovered in Qesem cave which was uncovered by Gopher and a colleague at Tel Aviv University, Ran Barkai. CT scans and X-rays will be utilized to determine the size and shapes and compare them to modern human specimens. Other artifacts unearthed in the cave included flint blades and animal bones that appeared to be cut as tools.

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.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, 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.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

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.
