Hi, I'm LVS, and this is the fake news:
- Early 2010 NBA mock draft - FOX Sports on MSN. In case Kalin Lucas is reading this: Jeff Goodman is WROOONG. You'll never, ever, ever be drafted . . . until 2011.

Q&A with … Titans coach Jeff Fisher | Sporting News. Ringer news:
Q: Are you excited with what you've seen from (fifth-round pick) Javon Ringer?
A: Very, very excited. He had some good OTA practices, has worked very hard. Sometimes you'll have a draft pick out there that looks like a rookie; he looks like a veteran. He's picking up everything. He's really a good running back without the ball, and I think that's the mark of a good young running back—how they play without the ball.
LSJ Blogs: Hey, Joe: Let's review . Rexrode comes back from vacation, and has much to talk about. He also reminds us that there's less than 4 weeks (!) until football media day. The summer's passing by quickly.
Gerry DiNardo: Penn St. looks to be superior in Big Ten | detnews.com | The Detroit News . Says that QB play will be key for us. As I would have said in third grade, "duh." He does provide this bit of depressing (probable) reality, however:
Q . So, is the Big Ten really as bad as people seem to think this year?
A . "I don't think the Big Ten is as strong as it was the last two years."
Even worse than the crapfest of the past two seasons? It's going to be a long season of ESSSS EEEEEE SEEEEEE!!!!!11, folks.

Bleeding Green: Boisture Personal Observations and Thoughts
Three stories on our new signal-caller. LSJ article illuminates his timeline a bit, FWIW:

Player profile: Michigan State University recruit Chris Norman of Detroit - cleveland.com . Fluff on '09 recruit, who is participating in a weird international high school football tournament this summer. There are fringe benefits, though; J Leman only wishes he could wear this uniform:

For U-M to proclaim the next in-state recruiting title, three prospects are key. Cass Tech cornerback Dior Mathis, Warren Mott defensive end C.J. Olaniyan and Livonia Stevenson running back Austin White all hold offers from the Wolverines, but U-M is in a battle for each one.
Happily enough, Olaniyan is, of the three, by far the one I'd most like to see in Green and White.
