Many college football fans would say that last weekend’s most contentious story was the suspension of reigning Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston.
They’d be wrong.
Less than two weeks ago, Arkansas State University banned the school’s football players from putting cross stickers on their helmets to honor two former members of the ASU program who tragically passed away this past year.
The University announced last week that it will raise the cost of scholarship seating at TCF.
The Minnesota Daily sat down with athletics director Norwood Teague on Tuesday for its third edition of “Talkin’ with Teague.”
Teague discussed bowl game revenue, the new scholarship seating plan and Jerry Kill’s Big Ten Coach of the Year award.
On behalf of Teague, the athletics communications department declined to comment on the suspension of men’s basketball player Daquein McNeil, who was charged with two felony counts of assault late last month.
Neither Minnesota nor Michigan has shown an ability to pass the ball four weeks into the season. The Gophers rank last in the Big Ten in pass offense, and the Wolverines are barely better, sitting at 12th out of 14 teams in the conference.
To top it off, both programs enter Saturday’s matchup with uncertainty surrounding the quarterback position.
Amid a mob of teammates, Maxx Williams stood on the field after the University of Minnesota football team’s 30-14 victory at the University of Michigan last Saturday. The victory gave him more than the Little Brown Jug rivalry trophy — he completed a family legacy.
Moments after his performance on the field ended, Williams couldn’t wait to find his father.
As Wolverines fans filed through the exits, Brian Williams hustled down the bleachers of the nation’s largest stadium to see his son celebrating on the field.
