Now that Manti Te’o’s pro day is over at Notre Dame, the question is how much did Te’o improve his stock. The answer is not much.That’s not to say that Te’o’s improved 40-yard dash time or his 21 reps in the bench press weren’t good. His 4.7 time in the 40 was a tenth of a second better than what he ran at the NFL Combine last month. Te’o did help himself, but the reason his stock won’t rise that much is because the infamous girlfriend hoax didn’t hurt his stock as much as some would like to think.Te’o was projected as a mid-first-round pick before the hoax and is projected as a mid-first-round pick after his pro day. There are a handful of teams who need help at inside linebacker and could take Te’o, or Georgia’s Alec Ogletree. Teams like Minnesota, Chicago, and Baltimore definitely have some holes to fill - especially the Bears and Ravens, who have to replace legends in Brian Urlacher and the now-retired Ray Lewis. The list of CFU’s top five inside backers doesn’t include Kans

One word comes immediately to mind when I think about the 2013 Georgia Bulldogs’ defensive unit: HUNGRY. So much discussion is being had about the loss of big-name guys like Jarvis Jones, Bacarri Rambo, and Alec Ogletree, that most people are expecting the Dawgs’ defense to fall hard on their collective arse in 2013. After all, the schedule is harder, the teams around them...

Notre Dame just can't stay out of the news as of late. First it was nomadic QB Gunner Keil announcing that he was transferring out of the program and now today reports are that two wide receivers - Davonte' Neal and Justin Ferguson - are transferring from the program as well.
They say it’s more the merrier, but Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly cannot be very happy right now.
Several weeks ago, rising sophomore quarterback Gunner Kiel decided to leave Notre Dame to pursue playing at another school with less quarterback competition. Then, just last night, news broke that wide-receiver Davonte’ Neal would leaving as well in order to be closer to home...
Nick Chubb, like Sony Michel, is high on the Georgia Bulldogs’ 2014 wish list. The 5-11, 210+ pound, tailback out of Cedartown High School (GA) visited Athens over the weekend and, once again, came away with good vibrations. “It was good to get back down there, I was able to speak to all the coaches again,” Chubb said.”Coach (Mark) Richt was just talking to me about how much...
Notre Dame says freshmen wide receivers Davonte' Neal and Justin Ferguson are no longer with the team.
Coach Brian Kelly also said Wednesday that running back Amir Carlisle, who missed all of last season with a leg injury, is out for the rest of spring practice with a broken collarbone. Sophomore defensive end Chase Hounshell will miss the 2013 season with the same shoulder...
Davonte Neal is going to transfer from Notre Dame to, most likely, a Pac-12 school. The news was broke on Twitter by Jason Sapp of Blue & Gold Illustrated:
BREAKING: Davonte' Neal transferring from #NotreDame. All the details inside... (VIP) bit.ly/ZpfQQD #ND #Irish

The reason is one that may sound somewhat familiar...
Mark Richt has been the head coach of Georgia’s football program since 2001. With only 2 SEC titles and 3 BCS Bowl appearances during that time, perhaps Richt thinks his time in Athens might be nearing an end. He put his Hartwell, Georgia mansion on the market for just $2 million.
Hartwell, which is located about an hour from the Athens, GA campus, provides a nice lake front escape...
Richt, noted butt-dial enthusiast and swing set daredevil, has returned to Twitter after taking an extended break. After signing up in 2009, Richt became bored with Twitter, most likely because he was not getting a steady diet of animal GIFs, which compose 95% of all tweets, AS THEY SHOULD.
After being shown a glimpse of the delightful world of animal GIFs, as well as realizing...

Notre Dame has been hit by the transfer bug.
Just a few weeks ago, it was former five-star quarterback Gunner Kiel announcing that he would be leaving South Bend and looking for another place to play. Today, Jason Sapp of Blue & Gold Illustrated is reporting that rising sophomore Davonte’ Neal will be leaving the program as well — it is a surprising move...
The Georgia Bulldogs are getting ready for a huge 2013 season by working tirelessly throughout Spring practices.
All you need is $2 million and the lake house mansion of Georgia Bulldogs coach Mark Richt is yours.
It seems Georgia head football coach had a little accident or two in his pants recently. Fourtinetly it was of the technological kind, and not the kind Triple H had on WWE RAW a few weeks ago. It seems he's been sending tweets from his pants when he sits down.
Yes, let's get these out of the way right now:
Mark Richt has lost control of Twitter.

Where is Bauta?
In all seriousness: where is Faton Bauta? By all accounts he’s the hardest working guy you’ll ever meet. He was listed as 6-3, 225 coming out of high school and runs a 4.55. He had offers from Bama, Louisville, Miami, West Virginia and others. But he can’t find the...
Davonte' Neal and Justin Ferguson, Notre Dame's No. 1 and No. 3-rated recruits in 2012, have both made their decisions to transfer away from South Bend.

Georgia/LSU September 28:
The Bulldogs' traditional SEC opener with South Carolina will be played in Week 2 in 2013, after a one-year move to the middle of the schedule. Lose that, and it's hard to imagine a...
