TGIF Linkage 08/14

0814_ShepardNoah1271Last night, the University of South Dakota football team opened fall camp with a one-hour practice inside the DakotaDome over in Vermillion.

It wasn’t anything hard-core, just a way for the freshmen to get acclimated to the routine of Coyote football. As was pointed out in today’s P&D story, the younger players spent Thursday moving into their dorms, filling out paperwork, attending meetings, talking with coaches, and generally becoming familiar with life on a college campus.

The real football fun begins on the fifth day of camp, when the team can practice in full pads.

USD opens its 2009 season on Thursday, Sept. 3 with a 7 p.m. matchup against NAIA foe William Penn in the DakotaDome.

Now, on to the actual linkage.

** New Army football coach Rich Ellerson — formerly at Cal Poly — is trying something interesting this season: A 6-foot-10 wide receiver.

** Dallas Morning News columnist Tim Cowlishaw not only sympathizes with Rangers star Josh Hamilton (who admitted to a January drinking binge), but says he can relate. A great read.

** Only when Shaq tosses out a first pitch does Albert Pujols look tiny.

** How many of these 30 Kids Cartoon Theme Tunes do you remember?

** The NCAA essentially threw the book at Southeast Missouri State.

** Simon Fraser University, up in British Columbia, has added a grade worse than F. So, does that mean a regular ol’ F is passing now?

** Hey, listen, it’s simple: Harrison Ford just wants his family.
