Buccaneers QB Ryan Griffin Has $6.5 Million in the Bank Thanks to a Dream Job Backing Up Tom Brady’s Backup’s Backup

Tom Brady made history last year with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The aging quarterback proved he still has what it takes to lead a Super Bowl-winning team, pushing through injuries that would slow down players two decades younger than him. What gets somewhat less attention is how prepared the Bucs were for Brady to falter, with four total QBs on the roster.

Tulane University students return to campus after Hurricane Ida to find valuables missing

Tulane University freshman Teo Banks returned to campus Saturday afternoon to find his brand new PlayStation console missing from his dorm room at Butler House. His suitcase was on top of his bed, though he distinctly remembered leaving it in his closet when he went home to Odessa, Texas, ahead of Hurricane Ida. Most of his electronics had been unplugged from their outlets, and his roommate's Derek Jeter baseball jersey was gone. A player on Tulane's baseball team, Banks soon heard from fellow teammates that they had found personal belongings missing from their rooms, and other students throughout Butler House told him the same.

The Business Of College Sports Continues Apace

The game of musical chairs continues. It appears the American Athletic Conference is on the cusp of adding big time college and university sports programs to its roster just weeks after losing the University of Central Florida, the University of Cincinnati and Houston University to the Big 12 Conference. The Big 12 is adding those schools to replace the University of Oklahoma and the University of Texas which went to the Southeastern Conference. CBS Sports reported the AAC was looking at five schools, Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State, San Diego State, and the University of Alabama Birmingham. There seems to be some sort of timetable for the AAC to add schools and it appears the group wants to get its business straightened out soon. There are television and marketing considerations and money is at stake.

Tulane freshmen find hand-written notes in a hole, in a brick, in a dorm room wall

This is a story about notes written by Tulane University freshmen on small scraps of paper. The notes were stuffed in a tiny hole, in the wall of a dorm room, where somebody might find them, or might not. They were simple messages from one newcomer to another. Nothing terribly profound, really. But in a world of instantaneous, not-always-encouraging communication, the tiny notes seem somehow precious.
