Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Nebraska fan and GIANT Big Red fan Warren Buffett. He was kind enough to cameo on “The Office” last night, mediocre as it has become.
• The Big Ten is looking to give its students a little extra sumthin-sumthin (around $3,000) to assist with “transportation, clothes, and other living expenses.” Not a bad start.
• Florida OC Charlie Weis has received upwards of $6.6 million from Notre Dame to continually not be their coach. Good work if you can find it.
• Oklahoma LB Austin Box was found dead in a residence in El Reno, OK of a “probable overdose,” with police reporting the presence of prescription drugs found at the house. Unbelievably awful.
• UNC DE Quinton Coples is being investigated by the NCAA for his presence at a post-draft party in Washington DC thrown for former teammates Marvin Austin and Robert Quinn. Are we positive North Carolina’s compliance department isn’t a series of desks occupied by inflatable dolls?
• Guess who’s back … back again … South Carolina QB Stephen Garcia.
• Details are trickling out about EA Sports’s NCAA 12. If you don’t think we’re going to go nuts with the release of this game in early to mid July (release is July 12, get it?), you just haven’t been paying attention to us.
• Do you want to see what new starting Washington QB Keith Price sees? Of course you kinda, maybe do.
• Florida coach Will Muschamp talks about his secondary, but it’s unclear if he was just reading from his jumbo wristband.
• Purdue QB Rob Henry should be the frontrunner to become the Boilermakers’ starting QB, but don’t count out the knee-less Robert Marve. Or do, whatever.
• San Diego State QB Ryan Lindley lost his best receivers. He should still be fine, but I can’t help but picture him sadly walking on the San Diego beach surrounded by beautiful SDSU girls with The Scorpions’ “Wind of Change” gently playing in the background.
• ESPN’s Chris Low ranks the SEC’s non-conference schedules. It’s just as exciting as it sounds.
• SI.com’s Stewart Mandel examines the complicated issues that surround oversigning.
