Fiesta Bowl fired CEO John Junker and the BCS is questioning their worthiness as a BCS bowl. Money under the nonprofit organization was spent on things ranging from political contributions to partying. So basically Junker spent a bunch of money on Junk and the Fiesta Bowl funded Fiestas.

Not saying people should get by with these types of actions, but there may be more bowl money swindlers out there other than BCS competitors of Jerry Jones.
It has been reported that Ralph Nader wants to remove college athletic scholarships.

The murderer of Uconn player Jasper Howard was sentenced to 18 years in prison. I don’t know what else to say about the tragedy other than I recommend people to try to stay out of bad situations at all cost and walk away from altercations. I pray that the Howard family and friends are now able to move on now without too much more pain from the horrible incident and that the good memories of Jasper will always be with them.

However, Coach Tuberville doesn’t seem very confident of his defense and says they are still “confused”. Watch the Youtube videos posted below on the Texas Tech spring game.
That’s it for this rundown. With all the spring games and the NFL Draft happening in April, there will be more blogs to come. Check back soon!
