Friday afternoon one-liners

USC football practice AP

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

Steve Spurrier being, well, the Ol’ Ball Coach when it came to his South Carolina team Thursday: “Pretty sorry practice tonight, it really was.”

Jeff Driskel returns to practice at Florida after missing six sessions due to an emergency appendectomy.

— Further south, UCF’s Blake Bortles also returned to practice, albeit in a limited capacity.

— Things aren’t looking good on the injury front for starting Illinois STAR Eric Finney.

— Utah safety Reshawn Hooker suffered what could be a career-ending concussion.

— Starting Wisconsin linebacker Ethan Armstrong out indefinitely with what for the time being is being described as a minor leg injury.

— Clemson players give a roar of approval over individual iPads; Dabo Swinney calls the technological development a game-changer.

— Changes abound on myriad fronts at the wide receiver position at Kansas State.

— Veteran Florida State wide receiver Willie Haulstead academically ineligible and won’t play in 2013.

— Competing for a starting linebacker spot, Toledo’s Jaylen Coleman will instead spend the next couple/few months rehabbing a knee injury.

— Western Michigan’s strength & conditioning explains why he took his players on a field trip to a local grocery store.

— Washington has decided to retire the famed Husky Helmet Car.

— The Wisconsin coaching staff surprises walk-on senior Nick Hill with a scholarship during a team meeting.

    That would be Washington that decided to retire the Husky Helmet Car, not Wisconsin.

    New stadium for the Huskies has given the car nowhere to drive.

    imaduffer, don’t be so quick to correct. bigtim2012 is referring to the University of South Carolina, who Clemson plays every year, not the University of Southern California.

    Then why did he say USC instead of South Carolina? That’s confusing.
