A college football news roundup that includes Oregon wide receiver Devon Allen announcing he will focus on track only and Iowa fans stealing headgear from their own team.


I saw the smash Broadway hit musical Hamilton last night and … it was one of the greatest things I have ever seen in my life. I didn’t want it to end. Every single person and moment was magical. Even if musicals aren’t your thing, you should still go see it. Standing ovation.

In college football, Alabama head coach Nick Saban wants to see a change to where Power Five teams only schedule each other, Texas A&M quarterback commitment Kellen Mond talks about competing next season for the starting job, and Wake Forest has started an investigation of how Louisville had some certain plays in their possession. Here are some other newsworthy notes in the latest college football news roundup.

Focusing On One Sport – Oregon wide receiver Devon Allen, who competed in the 110-meter hurdles in the latest Olympic games in Rio, has decided to forgo his senior season and focus on preparing for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo. Returning to football, however, is not out of the realm of possibilities.

“My scenario is to run track for the next couple years and then in 2020 Olympics win a gold medal and have the world record,” Allen said. “And then put that to the side and try to play football. I think that’s the ideal scenario.”

Auburn Defensive End Out – Former five-star prospect Byron Cowart hasn’t lived up to the billing so far at Auburn, and now he will miss the rest of the season after having to undergo an emergency appendectomy on Wednesday morning. Cowart had seen time in all 10 games of the season, making just six tackles.

Free Souvenirs! – Iowa fans stormed the field following the Hawkeyes upset victory over Michigan, and for some of them, they figured they would take some merchandise home as well. Head coach Kirk Ferentz said during his weekly press conference that more than a dozen Iowa helmets were taken from the sidelines. One kid was not smart and was caught by police wearing the stolen headgear down the street.

“I guess one of the cops walking down the street saw a kid wearing it and brought it back,” quarterback C.J. Beathard said. “There were a few helmets gone after the game. In the locker room afterward, guys were like, ‘We don’t know what happened to our helmets.’ Then, the next day, I guess they got all of them back except for mine. Then, they found it.”

I’m just going to assume that the culprits planned on making a little money on eBay.
