CFB AM: Watch literally the worst punter flop of all time

Usually the NBA is the league known for egregious flopping.

As it turns out, though, basketball does not have a monopoly on ridiculous flops.

Meet William James, the punter for Division III Chapman. During the first quarter of last weekend’s game against Linfield College, James was hardly grazed by a rusher but acted like his leg broke in three places in an attempt to draw a flag.

Sadly, it worked and then James hilariously jumped up in celebration and ran off the field as if he just made the best play of his life. Even worse, Chapman lost 52-14.  Come on, dude!

Enjoy the video at the top. Despite the horrible bit of acting, it is very funny.


Will Mack Brown be Texas’ next AD? The heat was turned up on Texas athletic director Steve Patterson on Monday, and this morning comes news that he will be fired, which could be finalized Tuesday. Now, who’s next? How about this: former head coach Mack Brown. A source told colleague Bruce Feldman there will be a lot of support for Brown to become the AD in Austin, although it’s not clear if that’s actually the direction president Gregory Fenves wants to go.

Cardale Jones is officially Ohio State’s starter. This is sort of semantics since Jones has started the first two games at quarterback for Ohio State, but Urban Meyer officially announced on Monday that the quarterbacks are no longer 1A and 1B — Jones is the clear-cut No. 1 guy. That doesn’t mean, however, that the job is totally on lockdown. “J.T. (Barrett) has not beaten him out yet,” Meyer said. “He’s going to continue to have opportunities to do that because J.T. is a very good player, and Cardale has got to perform.” So … yeah, there’s still a competition, but Meyer has eliminated the question of who will start games at QB for the foreseeable future. The Buckeyes have Northern Illinois at home this weekend.

Bob Stoops’ best win? In his Big Picture column this week, Feldman caught up with the Oklahoma coach, who called OU’s double-overtime win at Tennessee last weekend “maybe my favorite” in a career that includes many prominent victories, including a national championship. Bruce asked Stoops to explain his postgame comments on Sunday, and here’s why he loved this victory so much:

“102,000 people against you. You’re behind the chains all day. You’ve got three forced fumbles and you get none of ’em. All of that, and you still have the will to win and the fight to win and you do win. We were in a hole all day. For our offense, our average starting field position for those first three quarters was probably the 15-yard line, and their starting position was midfield. We’re behind the whole game in turnovers. Everything was against us. We played as poorly as we could with penalties and everything, and still won it. That’s strong.”

It was a great win, no doubt. I think some of the sentiment from Stoops after the game was due to adrenaline and the emotion that comes with being proud of a team after a tough victory. For Oklahoma fans: Where does this Tennessee win rank among recent victories in terms of satisfaction? Do you place it higher than beating Alabama in the Sugar Bowl a couple years ago, for instance?

Jake Olson is a Trojan! The blind long snapper at USC will finally be allowed to suit up as a member of the Trojans and is expected to be involved in practice today. Awesome news.


* A couple Oklahoma players apologized for acting like immature college kids after beating Tennessee.

* Presidential candidate Marco Rubio, who holds degrees from Florida and Miami, dropped some great trash talk on Florida State.

* Stewart Mandel covered the significant injuries top teams have already suffered in his Forward Pass column this week, and then on Monday, Notre Dame lost starting tight end Durham Smythe for the season. The Irish just can’t catch a break.

Have a great Tuesday, everyone.
