I have, perhaps, been a bit thin on football coverage over this past two months. So I want to thank those of you who are posting fan shots, it’s a great way to keep up a bit while we focus our attention on hoops.
So here are the updates, mainly from the fan shots.
Let’s start with the “mundane” updates.

Personal & Player updates (All from bsmit)
I really feel like Johnson has a Khalail Mack type ceiling at the next level. That he will get drafted is almost a certainty. As it stands he is probably a mid round draft but if he delivers again this season and has one or two jaw dropping, eye grabbing, national media generating games he could be a first round guy.
Bumphis is a former Mississippi player who worked last season as an offensive graduate assistant with the wide receivers. He is heading to Utah to take up the same role.
Anthony Johnson and Khalil Hodge Named to Touchdown Club of Columbus 2018 Players to Watch List. They were honored on the 17th of February.
