Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Iowa alumnus and Willy Wonka himself, Gene Wilder. As far as I know, Wilder never faced serious workout-related kidney overuse. Damn, now I need some chocolate.
• A dozen Iowa players were hospitalized with rhabdomyalysis, a kidney condition that stems from, essentially, working out too much and overexerting the kidneys. Iowa Football: We Piss Excellence … and Dirty Brownish Urine.
• College football conferences made a record $170 million from bowls in 2010-11. That’s like pre-hooker Charlie Sheen money, right there.
• Ohio State hired Florida RB coach Stan Drayton to coach Buckeye WRs. Mr. Drayton, please turn in your playbook and oversized wristband.
• ESPN’s David Ubben reviews the recruiting needs of the Big 12. It wasn’t fair of him, given their conference movement and recent turmoil, to put up a giant “EVERYTHING” next to Colorado.
• ESPN’s Joe Schad reports that Tate Forcier is considering nine different schools for his impending transfer — three of which are FCS programs. Didn’t expect to see Florida A&M in the Forcier sweepstakes, but now they’re who I’m rooting for. Rattler Up!
• Former Florida DB Will Hill claimed a hacker took over his Twitter account and somehow it was the fault of “some blogger” for posting the choice tweets. I don’t see how there could be any holes in this story.
• SI.com’s Stewart Mandel explains how USC coach Lane Kiffin is dancing around the school’s NCAA sanctions.
• Former touted West Virginia QB Barry Brunetti decided to transfer a few weeks ago and now we can all have a great Wednesday knowing he will be taking his talents to Oxford, MS to play for Ole Miss.
• Rich Rodriguez will serve as an analyst for CBS College Sports on National Signing Day. Yep.
• Texas A&M’s AD Bill Byrne is being a Longhorn Network buzzkill. As he should be.
Today’s Video of the Day is Seinfeld. But serious.
Enjoy your Wednesday.
