The roots of the Arizona Cardinals go back further than any National Football League franchise, being founded by Chicago’s Morgan Athletic Club in 1898 – having no idea that more then a century later the outfit would be playing in a retractable-roofed stadium in the middle of the Arizona desert.
The Cardinals got their handle in 1915 after being given maroon hand-me-downs from the University of Chicago that had faded significantly in color.

For a 3-4 DE, only Campbell can go sack for sack, tackle for tackle, disruption for disruption with Smith. Best of all, Campbell is only 25 years old, and just hitting his prime.
MIKE LEACH HAS shuffled up the Class of 2012 commit list since arriving at Washington State but he's kept five of the offensive line prospects who were committed.

We went to the source to find out...
By LaRue Robinson Mike Leach may have moved on to a new job at Washington State, but his legal battles with his former employer continue. He offered Texas Tech a settlement in which he would drop his lawsuit if Texas Tech paid him an unspecified amount he believed he was due last season. The school’s [...]
