Redskins Take Kentucky’s Jarmon In Supplemental Draft

Jarmon-4

By Ben Linton

The Washington Redskins took former Kentucky Defensive Lineman Jeremy Jarmon in the third round of today’s supplemental draft. For those of you who don’t know, The Supplemental Draft accomodates players that did not enter their name into the NFL Draft in April because they thought they still had academic eligibility to play college football. In the Supplemental Draft, teams don’t have to use their picks, as the Redskins were the only team to select a player.

In most recent history, the Baltimore Ravens took OL Jared Gaither from Maryland in the Supplemental Draft in 2007. Jarmon should add depth the the Redskins’ old and depleted defensive line that only registered 24 sacks last season. Since Phillip Daniels (36) and Renaldo Wynn (34) may only have a few good years left, they can develop Jarmon into the player the Redskins hope he will be. Jarmon is third all time in Kentucky history with 17.5 sacks and was SEC Honorable Mention in 2009. Hopefully he will bring that intense pass rush from the outside that the Redskins have been seeking for so long for years to come.

Maryland at Indiana for Big Ten-ACC Challenge

By Ben Linton

On December 1, the Maryland Terrapins will travel to Bloomington, Indiana to take on the Indiana Hoosiers in the 2009 Big Ten-ACC Challenge. It will take place at 7:30 pm and be broadcasted on ESPN2. This will be the first time the teams have met since 2003, where the Terps traveled to Indianapolis to play the Hoosiers, a game which they lost 80-74. The Most Memorable matchup between these two teams came on April 1, 2002, when Maryland beat Indiana 64-52 to win the National Championship. The Terps return four of five starters from last year’s squad and have a group of young, talented big men coming in. Indiana, on the otherhand, is at a rebuilding stage with coach Tom Crean. The Hoosiers won only six game last season. This will be the Terps’ first ever trip to Assembly Hall, a historic venue.

The T.O. “Nude” Show

Why?

Why?

By Jesse Jones

As most people know, Terrell Owens is going to air his own reality TV show on VH1 called ‘The T.O. Show”.  This picture is the cover for the show…  Now why does a man, who has already shown off his body to the world, want to post nude for the whole world to advertise his reality TV show?  Thousands, if not millions of people already do not like this man, and these people might become even more annoyed with him for this.  This picture might put some on the other side of the line than they originally were, and it might have no effect.

I’m sure the show will have people see a different side of him, and he may gain more fans from it, I just do not see where this picture fits in at all.  But I know one thing is certain, the ladies love this!
