X Factor Star Rebecca Ferguson

X Factor Star Rebecca Ferguson - X Factor star Rebecca Ferguson has admitted to soul-searching over whether she should continue in the competition.

The mother-of-two said that during the weekend she questioned whether her sacrifices would be worth it - but has now decided to give it her all.

She is one of five acts who has won through to the semi-finals on Saturday.
Rebecca, from Liverpool, said: "I just found myself on Saturday night thinking 'is it going to be worth it?' - and I got emotional about it.

"And it just made me more determined to go out on Saturday and give it my all," she added.
She said the pressure of being away from her children had got to her.

"I was just missing my kids, if I'm being totally honest. I've worked really hard and it's been a big sacrifice for me being here away from the kids.

"I've missed their birthdays, I've missed the first day of school."

Speaking at a secret X Factor live show for communications firm TalkTalk, Rebecca defended herself against criticisms of her static live performances.

"You've got to think of artists like Adele, for instance. She's an amazing artist. She stands there, she sings. Amy Winehouse is pretty much the same. Maybe that's just the type of artist I am," Rebecca said.

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, 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.

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.
