Bobby Bowden

Thursday night one-liners


Meandering our way through the offseason, a single one-liner at a time…

Bobby Bowden is proud of Joe Ostaszewski, one of his former Florida State defensive linemen, for being a big loser; would be even prouder if he were the Biggest Loser.

— A bone-on-bone situation in his left knee has led Clemson linebacker Justin Parker to call it a playing career.

Will Muschamp is happy to defensive lineman Dominique Easley in Florida’s foxhole.

— Not only is Maryland’s Matt Robinson dealing with a position switch, he’s doing so while also recovering from a significant shoulder injury.

— Boise State senior wide receivers Geraldo Boldewijn and Aaron Burks need to start turning potential into production.

— 2013 signee Jaylen Lowe wants to become Tulsa’s first football-basketball athlete in more than 20 years, and head coach Bill Blankenship has no objections.

— SMU linebacker Cameron Rogers will be honored by the National Football Foundation as one of the organization’s nine college scholar-athletes.

— West Virginia will add a family-friendly section to Milan Puskar Stadium, which will presumably be a “No Couch-Burning Zone.”

— As Michigan prepares to embark on spring practice 2013, All-Big Ten punter Will Hagerup remains suspended and yeah it’s the offseason so even kickers are players too this time of the year.

— BYU’s looking to get past last year’s misadventures and show some marked improvement in the kicking game and yeah I slid this one in here on purpose.

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, 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.
