FORMER HALL OF FAME CHICAGO BEAR DAN HAMPTON TELLS BEARS QB JAY CUTLER TO PROVE IT!

By: KaSandra Hunt | Football Fan Rush Network  Friday, July 18, 2014. 8:23am CST

This past off season, the Chicago Bears granted quarterback Jay Cutler an average of $120 million over seven years. It made a lot of mouths drop wide open considering his above average but not great track record.

Well not only have fans questioned if Cutler is worth that type if money but Dan Hampton called him out about it.

Hampton was quoted as saying, “You saw what Seattle was able to do this year. When you are able to function as a complete football team without a $20 million quarterback,” Hampton said. “We saw Peyton Manning. He was very important to his team, but was he good enough to overcome a bad game and win it all? No.

"So you cannot hold your team hostage by signing a quarterback that is going to be paid somewhere around $20 million if he does not have the ability to win games by himself. Now, Jay Cutler, at this present moment, he hasn’t beaten anybody. He didn’t beat Green Bay this year when we needed him to win.

"Sooner or later, everybody is going to realize that you’re going to be as good as either your defense is or if your quarterback is able to win if you put him in the spot. Jay Cutler has been designated and paid like a franchise quarterback, but he’s got a long way to go to prove it."

Though it was obvious Cutler was the best choice continuing to be the Bears starting QB, it’s obvious more than the fans wanna see Cutler prove he is worth every penny.

She hadn’t done splits and high kicks since her cheerleading days in high school, but 40-year-old dance instructor Kriste Lewis set a lofty goal: to try out for the New Orleans Saints cheerleading squad, known as the Saintsations.Faced with competition from women who mostly ranged in age from 18 to 28, Lewis never thought she’d make the team. And then, she did.“I wanted to set a goal for myself, and the audition was a specific date that required specific training, so my goal was just to make it to the audition,” said Lewis, who lives with her husband and two sons in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, about 100 miles northeast of New Orleans. “Honestly, I really did not think I was going to make it.” (Photo: Bill Haber/The Associated Press)

WHAT  NOT TO DO WHILE ON A COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP: REAL LIFE GRAND THEFT AUTO

We all make mistakes! But, how do you go on a joy ride, damage the vehicle, get suspended from the number #1 college football team in the country and end up facing possible jail time?  This could really be on an episode of “Ridiculousness” 

 According to SB Nation’s Tomahawk Nation, who broke the story?

Florida State sophomore receiver Jesus Wilson was arrested Wednesday on a charge of Grand Theft Auto in the third degree. This, according to the Leon County Sheriff’s booking report. No information is provided in the booking report other than the charge, which is a felony.

On June 11, 2014, Florida State Sophomore WR Jesus “Bobo” Wilson, 19, decided it to take Sebastian Bellini’s scooter, valued at $1000, for a joy ride. In the arrest reports, Wilson initially says he borrowed the scooter from a classmate.  He later recanted via email, telling the authorities he took the scooter after noticing the keys were still in the ignition. 

Wilson also said he didn’t plan on taking the scooter as long as he did. Which causes me to wonder how long he would’ve kept riding?  After all, he obviously fell or ran into something and just said, “Oh well, I already tore it up, might as well keep going!”  When you think about it, it all kind of makes you go 

As it stands, he is facing third degree Grand Theft Auto charges, which under Florida Law, carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison, five years probation and up to a $5000 fine, upon conviction.  

According to Florida State’s code of conduct he’s been suspended from the team, however, he can still practice.

He has a career total 23 receiving yards and is currently working his way up the depth chart to the number one position at slot receiver.  This is Wilson’s first offense; hopefully, they’ll go easy on him.

HIP HIP HOORAY…THE BCS IS GOING AWAY!

Are you ready for the Play-Offs? Fair well BCS, 
College football implements four way play off system!
It’s the time of year again where college stadiums will be filled to capacity with fans watching their favorite modern day gladiators take the field! This year promises to be very interesting as it’s the beginning of the first ever play off system in college football history, which is set to run through 2025.  
The 11 conferences will manage the championship game and it will not be considered a bowl game. Teams advancing to the playoffs will be ranked by a selection committee and will be considered via the following metrics: strength of schedule, win-loss record, head to head results and if the team is a conference champion.  
As it stands, the semifinals will be played either on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day with the title game being played the first Monday in January or little over a week after the last semifinal game. “Championship Monday” will go to the highest bidding site, opening the door for a variety of options in regards to where the game will take place.
Interestingly enough, some conferences will not automatically qualify to participate during the postseason, like the Big East, who’s champion no longer has a guaranteed spot in either of the six major bowls. Another conference dealing with non-automatic status is the Mountain West. Home to teams like Boise State, Colorado State, Air Force and my Alma Mater, UNLV! (GO REBELS!)  Unfortunately for these conferences, there’s no way of knowing if they’ll even have access to the tournament this year. Which is tragic because I feel all teams have the right to play for a playoff spot. Guess we’ll have to see if they let these conferences can play their way in.  It should be noted the non- automatic status doesn’t prevent Bowl eligibility; it only applies to the playoffs.
Still, there are other issues remaining before the season gets underway: revenue sharing, access, the selection-committee and branding of the new system which I’m sure will be resolved by the time the season starts.
Will this system, be perfect, probably not! There’s bound to be controversy of the playoff selections, someone whining because their team is on the No. 5 bubble. But,  hey it’s football! It get’s the people going!!!
