Report: Big East Extends Six Invites

In this week's As the Conference Turns...

The Big East has reportedly finalized its invitations to the best of the rest, meeting yesterday to vote on sending them out to Houston, Boise State, SMU, Navy, Air Force, and Central Florida.

Cowboys Cut Tashard Choice

Looks like we mark this one on the "Jerious Norwood" segment of our Top 25 Prospects list. With Tashard Choice hurt, and the team needing his roster spot to activate Bruce Carter, the Cowboys have elected to waive him. Choice was very effective as a change-of-pace back in 2008 and 2009, but struggled last season and had -58 rushing DYAR through Week 7, which places him below every running back not named Chris Johnson.

ESPN: Can Titans Fix Their Running Game?

This is a larger question than just "what's wrong with Chris Johnson?," and we look at it a different way. What has happened in the past to teams whose offenses were as unbalanced as those of Tennessee and Minnesota?

Olin Kreutz Quits Saints

Citing an acute case of "losing his passion for the game," Saints center Olin Kreutz has decided to leave New Orleans. He won't file retirement papers, but it seems like he has lost interest in playing. Having to play through an MCL sprain probably didn't help matters.

The Saints will turn to Brian De La Puente at center.
