I have a post on Michael Starts commitment coming up later this morning.  Have a good Friday.

FOOTBALL
Rivals.com College Football - Assistants who could be head coaches soon
Your favorite offensive coordinator Neal Brown continues to be highly thought of as he was named as the #17 list of assistant coaches who could be head coaches in the future:

The buzz: A 31, he's a wunderkind who is the youngest guy on this list. He became the youngest OC in the FBS ranks in 2008 when he was promoted to the post at Troy. Brown directed the No. 15 offense in the nation in 2010 in his first season in Lubbock. While being an adroit passing game tactician, Brown also injected some oomph into Tech's ground game.

Turburner's Jay Beck also ranked the best offensive coordinators in the Big 12 and felt that Brown is the #3 offensive coordinator.

Man accuses singer Patti LaBelle's guards of airport attack | Houston & Texas News | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle
This is just odd.  The man in question is the grandson of former Texas Tech coach J.T. King, Richard King (also plays football at West Point) and the Chron has video and yes, it appears that he just got too close and got his rear kicked.
