It goes without saying that there were more than a few fans of the Cincinnati Bearcats who were slightly miffed when Brian Kelly decided to bolt the Queen City for Touchdown Jesus and the Notre Dame job.
Last night, at least one of them decided to publicly display just how disgruntled and dismayed he/she was over the move.
On his Twitter account early this afternoon, Kelly posted the following:
“Spent most of the morning on the phone with recruits. House got egged last night and the sign on the lawn wasn’t a FOR SALE sign.”
[Why do I get the feeling the next tweet we see from interim UC coach Jeff Quinn will be something along the lines of “Will the next person that sees anybody throw anything onto this house, point ’em out and get ’em out of here. You don’t live in South Bend, you live in Cincinnati!!!“]
As pointed out by SportsByBrooks.com, wide receiver saw this type of “activity” coming when Kelly was surrounded by security at the school’s awards banquet Thursday.
“He never had any security like that before. I mean he already won Coach of the Year before, so all that security wasn’t necessary. I think he was worried about what was going to go on with the city and the fans if anything.”
Colorado had already lost one starting inside linebacker to injury. Now, the Buffs have lost another.
Kenneth Olugbode sustained an unspecified leg injury in the Week 5 loss to Oregon. As a result, Olugbode will miss 4-6 weeks.
At minimum, Olugbode will miss games against Arizona State, Arizona, Oregon State and UCLA, possibly returning for the Nov. 7 game against Stanford. Missing six weeks would see him miss the Stanford and USC games, returning, Nov. 21 vs. Washington State.
“It’s going to be a big loss,” defensive tackle Justin Solis said according to the Denver Post. “It starts up front with us, the D-line. Not having K.O. out there is a huge loss, but it’s definitely something we accept as a challenge as a D-line. We’re going to step it up while he’s out.”
Olugbode had started all five games this season after starting all 12 games as a sophomore last season. Ryan Severson is expected to take his place in the starting lineup.
Back on September 10, it was announced that Jim Harbaugh had dismissed Logan Tuley-Tillman for “conduct unacceptable for a Michigan student-athlete.” Now we know what that unacceptable conduct was. Allegedly.
Wednesday morning, mlive.com is reporting, Tuley-Tillman was charged with three felonies stemming from a Sept. 4 incident in which he’s accused of filming a sex act with a woman without her knowledge. Tuley-Tillman was officially charged with two counts of capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person and one count of using a computer to commit a crime.
From the report:
Capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person is punishable by up to two years in prison, a fine of no more than $2,000, or both. Using a computer to commit a crime, in this case, would be punishable by up to 10 years in prison, a fine of no more than $5,000, or both.
The incident occurred in the 300 block of Catherine Street Sept. 4. Tuley-Tillman is accused of filming a portion of a sexual encounter with a woman without her knowledge and then transmitting it to his personal device without her permission, according to Ann Arbor police.
Tuley-Tillman was a four-star member of Brady Hoke‘s second-to-last UM recruiting class, rated as the No. 24 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 7 player at any position in the state of Illinois. He played in one game as a redshirt freshman last season, the season opener against Appalachian State.
This season, he had been listed as the No. 2 left tackle and played in the 2015 opener.
