1. Weekly Whatup

[“Whether the players know it or not, we’ve been working in our walkthroughs and our team situations throughout camp what we were going to see in our first ballgame,” said GSU coach Chris Hatcher about the Great Danes. “They’re big and they’re very physical, very sound in what they do. They were the (Northeast) Conference champs last year, so they’ve got a good football team. I’m sure they’re going to come down here ready to play, and I think we’re gonna be ready, too.”]

[For example, the Jacks' first opponent, Georgia Southern, is the most storied program in the FCS - even above team du jour Appalachian State - by virtue of six national titles.]


4. Baltimore Ravens rookie Fein says he's innocent

[Ravens wide receiver Jayson Foster, who acknowledged he was with Fein when the scuffle took place, is cooperating with the investigation. "I already gave my report to the police. You'll have to pretty much check with them to see what they say," said Foster. When pressed about details, Foster said he didn't know that Fein had been charged with a crime. "I don't know the charges," Foster said. "We'll wait for the (police) report to come out. How it ends up is how it will be."]

[There may be only one Adrian Peterson in the NFL by the time the regular season rolls around. The Bears’ Adrian Peterson is looking more and more like he’s going to be a victim of a numbers game in Chicago and be released at some point in the waiver process.]


7. Pioneers return after ArenaCup

[Irving Campbell, an af2 rookie out of Georgia Southern, got himself noticed all over the football world with his team-leading 99 receptions and 1,329 yards. Campbell also piled up 14 touchdowns in the postseason to lead the team. His receiving yards are second most in one season in Pioneers’ history. He was also part of one of the freakiest plays in Saturday’s loss when he was open for a pass and was knocked down by a devastating hit by the Shock’s Sergio Gilliam. Stanley Franks then caught the deflection and ran it back the other way for a score.]


8. L'Kings bullpen wastes Kasparek's strong start

[Clinton led 3-2 entering the eighth, but reliever Blake Nation gave up a leadoff double to Beau Brooks and then walked Perez. After Angel Castillo's infield single loaded the bases, Townsend came through with the game-winning hit.]
