|NFL moves extra point back
|I'm sure most of you have heard by now but the NFL moved the ball back on the extra point to the 15, meaning a extra point is now 32 yards. 99% of extra points are made, only 94% of 32 yard field goals. I wonder if this will impact college football? And if so, when?

|TSN Rates the FCS Conferences
|Nice find Carney.
Not surprised where we fall out in FCS. It seems about right. In my opinion we are above the Ivy League just because of our depth. And I think it is going to be very difficult for the PL to climb that ladder.

Albany could advance here. Albany has shown that they can win without dominating on faceoffs. They're better than most give them credit for, especially on defense. Lyle Thompson is the offensive key for the Great Danes. He's just amazing - Lyle is the best player in the t ...
|This from a Q&A with a Ray Fittipaldo, Pittsburgh reporter who attended this past weekend's Steelers minicamp:
Guest: How many undrafted free agents do you expect to make the roster?
Ray Fittipaldo: There always seems to be one or two. Most likely practice squad is best option for those guys, though. Only a few roster spots available unless there are injuries.
