T.W.I.S.T. for August 29 – September 4

College Football is underway and the NFL starts this week, so starting next week, we’ll have a football feature on Mondays to cover all the weeks football news. But for this week, we’ll keep it all right here. Here’s this week’s T.W.I.S.T.


College Football

  • Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram, running back for Alabama, had a procedure done on his knee and will be out for the opener. If this becomes some kind of persistent injury, it will be interesting to see how it affects their offense.
  • Texas Head Coach Mack Brown has stated that if the Heisman Trophy Trust takes back Reggie Bush’s 2005 Heisman Trophy, he thinks they should give it to his former QB, Vince Young. Hard to disagree with him on that one.
  • Boise State thought they were getting a great deal leaving the WAC to join the Mountain West earlier this summer, but then Utah left for the Pac-10 and now BYU is leaving… to go independent!
  • The Big 10 conference has released it’s new divisions! Although they are not yet named they will be split up like this: Nebraska, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, and Northwestern in one and Ohio State, Wisconsin, Penn State, Illinois, Purdue, and Indiana in the other.
  • QB Jeremiah Masoli has won his appeal and will now be allowed to play this season for Ole Miss after transferring (being kicked out) from Oregon. He won’t start the opener, but he’ll be their starting QB for the remainder of the season.
  • Bodog.com has released the starting odds have been released for the National Championship winners. Here’s some interesting ones: Nebraska 15/1, Iowa 20/1, Texas 14/1, OU 15/2, Bama 4/1, Ohio St 5/1, Boise 8/1. The field 25/1


After denying his 17 year deal, the NHL has approved a new 15 year deal for Ilya Kovalchuk to sign with the New Jersey Devils. 15 freakin’ years… that’s ridiculous.
