While the rest of the East Coast made preparations for Hurricane Irene, Virginia Union and St. Augustine's got together to play some football in the ugly conditions. Not often you see a punt go -1 yard.
(There's also this slightly NSFW punt.)

Former Patriots and Chiefs linebacker Mike Vrabel, he of the three Super Bowl rings and touchdown catches as a goal-line tight end, has retired and will be named an assistant coach at Ohio State according to The Columbus Dispatch. He'll likely coach the linebackers, which is what interim head coach Luke Fickell was doing before Jim Tressel's resignation. A press conference is expected on Monday.

This is a really great feature at ESPN.com, a countdown of their top 50 players who were superstars in college football but never made it big in the NFL. There are players who had a few mediocre years, players who washed out entirely, and players who never even tried to make it as a pro. Sure, a few of the picks are option quarterbacks like J.C. Watts, but most of them are either players who struggled with injury or players whose games should have translated to the NFL, and just didn't. Number One is Archie Griffin.
