Minnesota Golden Gopher football created giant wall to nowhere

This wall was inserted into Minnesota Golden Gopher football stadium where it was made to look like there was an amazing locker room to be found. What’s the problem with this? It’s a fake wall and the stadium has no amazing locker room with flat screens and extravagant decoration. This is the same kind of trick that the Road Runner would pull on Wile E Coyote on an old cartoon...

New Arkansas jerseys are worth a look

The new white Arkansas helmets are pretty interesting. It will be great to see how Arkansas handles this season with John L. Smith at the helm instead of Bobby Petrino.
