Miami (Ohio) quarterback Zac Dysert entered Senior Bowl week with a quiet buzz surrounding him. More coverage: Senior Bowl hub Dysert didn't blow anyone away in practice this week, but Daniel Jeremiah... of NFL.com did take note of Dysert's pocket presence, saying he works better in chaos rather than on simple drop back plays. Jeremiah added that Dysert is the opposite of Landry Jones and Mike Glennon in this regard. Dysert has played in a few different offenses during his college career, which has impacted his game. While his decision making and accuracy have been called into question on occasion, Dysert is a big, strong-armed passer who exhibits the ability to avoid the rush and extend plays with his feet. Also see: Dan Kadar's top 15 prospects at the Senior Bowl The first round may be a...

If you flip a coin a hundred times, odds are you'll end up with tails about 50 times and heads about 50 times. You would think that if you asked a camel to randomly pick the winner of a football game,... you'd come up with the same results. However, that hasn't been the case for one New Jersey camel. Princess, a resident at the Popcorn Park Zoo in Ocean County, New Jersey, has a knack for predicting football games. She went 11-6 this season and has predicted six of the last seven Super Bowls correctly, including the two Giants upsets over the Patriots. For more on the story, visit Baltimore Beatdown and Niners Nation The 26-year-old camel's pick is in and Princess has picked another upset, predicting the Ravens will win Super Bowl XLVII over the 49ers. Zoo manager John Bergmann says that...

In less than two weeks, National Signing Day will spark some college football fans to finally buy season tickets for their favorite team while others will attempt to find solace after a coveted commit... flips to a rival team. It can be a cruel yet exhilarating day for college football fans, but the final two weeks leading up to National Signing Day can also be ulcer-inducing. Big 12 football fans are probably worried about the conference's current overall performance in landing the country's top recruits. Right now, Alabama and USC have 19 percent of the Top 100 prospects committed to their two schools. Two teams have almost one-fifth of the cream of the crop. That's simply mind-boggling. So where does the Big 12 stand in terms of its recruiting classes of 2013 so far? Texas is ranked No. 14...

Manti Te'o went to Katie Couric for TV-time about his role in the "Lennay Kekua" scandal. The other key participant--Te'o's friend Ronaiah Tuiasosopo--has chosen Dr. Phil McGraw to break his side of... the story. According to a report by TMZ, Tuiasosopo sat down with the talk show host for several hours on Thursday, and the first-ever public statement from the culprit in creating this Kekua will air sometime next week on Dr. Phil's daytime show. Here's an excerpt from the TMZ report: According to sources, Phil's interview with Ronaiah is "emotional and deep." It's expected to air some time next week. Ronaiah has yet to address the public about his alleged involvement in the Manti hoax -- even though Manti has already said Ronaiah privately confessed to concocting the whole thing. The news...

Utah Jazz: Jazz Talk About Having No All-Stars

Bleacher Report - 25 Jan 2013 23:53
The Utah Jazz currently hold the seventh-best record in the Western Conference, but they have mixed emotions about not being able to send a player to the 2013 NBA All-Star Game in Houston. According... to Jody Genessy of Deseret News, players and coaches expressed their thoughts about not having an All-Star for the second consecutive year. Coach Tyrone Corbin gave his team a note of confidence after their performance midway through the season. It's disappointing. I think if you look at the work that Al [Jefferson] and even Paul [Millsap] and some ways Gordon (Hayward) at times, they should be considered....We've grown as a team. Their numbers mean something to how we have a chance to be successful or not. I think you can compare them to the other guys at their position or their spots. They...

With the NBA trade deadline just a little under a month away, underachieving teams like the Boston Celtics, Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers, may all be looking to shake things up a bit as they... look to make a run at this year's postseason. Boston Celtics Currently riding a five-game losing streak, the Boston Celtics have been linked to trade rumors throughout the association. With a record of 20-22, good enough for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference, the Celtics clearly need to make a move if they want to put together a meaningful run this postseason. Although the Memphis Grizzles may have unofficially taken Rudy Gay off the market this week with a payroll-shedding trade, Gay is someone for whom the Celtics should be trying make a move, and with news that the Celtics may be...

The Cincinnati Bengals made a roster move on Friday (per The Cincinnati Enquirer), signing linebacker Aaron Maybin to a futures contract that will have him added to the 53-man roster in early... February. Maybin, who was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the first round of the 2009 draft, was thought of as a bust--the one-time pass rush specialist recorded no sacks for the Bills in his first two seasons in the NFL before being shipped off to the New York Jets. He had six sacks as a 3-4 outside linebacker for New York in 2011 (he was a 4-3 defensive end in Buffalo), but was cut at the halfway point of the 2012 season after having just nine quarterback pressures with no sacks. Though the Bengals have five linebackers who are about to become unrestricted free agents this offseason--Manny Lawson,...

For the second time in less than a week, Aston Villa have been knocked out of a domestic cup competition by a lower league side. On Tuesday, they fell victim to a great performance by Bradford City... and missed a chance to go to Wembley. On Friday, they went to The Den and gave up two soft goals to Millwall in a 2-1 victory for the Lions. Darren Bent got Villa off to a good start with a 22nd minute goal, assisted by Andreas Weimann. While Bent's finish wasn't exactly a technically beautiful one, it got the job done. He mi*** the ball, but David Forde dived the wrong way and the ball rolled across the line. Villa couldn't hold onto that lead, and gave up an equalizer just five minutes later. It came in the most predictable fashion, through a set piece. The Villains have struggled to defend...

Devon Allen to Oregon: Ducks Land 4-Star WR Recruit

Bleacher Report - 25 Jan 2013 23:49
Wide receiver Devon Allen, one of the top 2013 recruits from the state of Arizona, has decided to join Oregon, according to Fox Sports' Inna Lazarev. The Ducks emerged from a large group of interested... teams to secure his commitment. Phoenix (Ariz.) Brophy Prep WR & track star, Devon Allen, has committed to Oregon. -- Inna Lazarev (@InnaLazarev) January 25, 2013 The 6'1'', 187-pound Brophy Prep star didn't receive as much hype during the recruitment process as some of this year's other top receivers. That's most likely because he doesn't have as much upside as some of the class' elite wideouts. On the other hand, Allen is ready to help right away. According to 247Sports' composite rankings, Allen is a 4-star prospect and the 38th-best prospect at his position. He ranks as the No. 263...
