Moving a couch really is no easy task, even for football players. Just ask Colorado State quarterback Garrett Grayson.
Grayson injured his left clavicle while moving a couch and had to undergo surgery to ensure he will be ready to return over the summer for conditioning workouts with the Rams. Colorado State head coach Jim McElwain said Grayson suffered the injury Friday. Fortunately for the Grayson, he throws with his right hand and shoulder.
Grayson led the Rams in passing last season with 3,696 yards and 23 touchdowns with 11 interceptions over 14 games, including the wild come-from-behind victory in the New Mexico Bowl against Washington State. The passing yardage and touchdown total are school records for Colorado State. As long as he is back and ready to workout with the team over the summer, there should be little cause for alarm regarding his status for the upcoming season.
At least this couch was not on fire, right?
Today one of college football’s biggest rivalry games will be shown to DISH customers in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth and seven other regions in Texas. The reason? Television contract disputes between Tegna and DISH.
Tegna is the largest independent owner of NBC and CBS affiliates in the country, including NBC affiliates in Denver, Washington D.C., Atlanta and Phoenix. The company is in a continued dispute with DISH related to fee disputes, per Variety.
“Our position has been simple: The same fundamental terms that allowed us to reach deals with distributors nationwide should serve as the basis for our deal with Dish,” a statement from Tegna said. “Rather than accepting that fair, market-based approach, Dish has refused to reach an agreement and once again is preventing its customers from accessing valued channels, even as customers continue to pay for that content.”
Now the dispute carries a concern for some fans wanting to watch Oklahoma and Texas this afternoon.
This should go over well, although there may be some Texas fans who may not want to witness what happens to the Longhorns anyway.
Heading into what could be his final game as head coach of the Maryland Terrapins, Randy Edsall will reportedly go with Perry Hills as his starting quarterback.
Hills, a junior, got the start for the first two games of the season but the leash was short. Edsall made a change to Caleb Rowe following a loss at home to Bowling Green. Hills has completed 52.9 percent of his passes for 306 yards and four touchdowns with two interceptions. Rowe has been a disaster at the position, completing just 44.0 percent of his attempts for 428 yards, four touchdowns and an astounding 12 interceptions in five games. Daxx Garman has struggled as well with a completion percentage of just 33.0.
