FriDay in Football

Injured Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford will not play against Miami on Saturday night. I'm sure the decision to rest him for another week was made much easier because Miami got whipped by Virginia Tech last week and Bradford's back up, Landry Jones, has thrown for about a hundred touchdowns in relief.

West Virginia runner Noel Devine rushed for a career best 220 yards in a 35-24 win against Colorado last night. Bigger story: Colorado scored 24. What the shit, West Virginia defense?

There's a possibility that Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount may be reinstated before the end of the season. Apparently Oregon's definition of "season long suspension" is like Bill Clinton's definition of "sexual relations." HEY-OOOOOH!

Troy Polamalu hasn't ruled out playing Sunday night against San Diego. I haven't ruled out completely not giving a shit.

Speaking of the Steelers, running back Rashard Mendenhall was disciplined for not knowing his assignments. There's a joke in there somewhere about the quality of education at Illinois, but I can't quite pin it down....

In an update of a point from the other day, apparently Nike doesn't have a formal deal with Michael Vick after all; they'll just be providing him with free swag like they do with tons of athletes...and football bloggers, maybe? I could sure use some more retroed Jordans.
