    A college football news roundup that includes Phillip Fulmer taking a jab at Lane Kiffin and Bret Bielema being unhappy with refs during Arkansas basketball game.


    It is March 13, so of course we now receive the first considerable snowfall of the year here in Chicago. Isn’t that just a kick in the butt? Yesterday, we received an extra hour of sunlight, the NCAA Tournament is about to start, spring is in the air, and then WHAM! Snow on the ground. I suppose better now than in, say, May.

    In college football news, Georgia wide receiver Riley Ridley was arrested for misdemeanor possession, Ohio State quarterback and early enrollee Tate Martell has been named the 2017 Maxwell Club’s national player of the year, and we take a look at some storylines for Wisconsin during spring practice. Here are some other newsworthy notes in the latest college football news roundup.

    Never Gets Old – A person could run for governor in the state of Tennessee and possibly get elected just by having a campaign centered on bashing Lane Kiffin.

    Former Volunteers head coach Phillip Fulmer couldn’t help but take a shot at his successor (albeit for one year) at a charity event he was speaking at over the weekend.

    “I miss coaching every day. I have done quite a few things. I did CBS for a couple of years and that was a lot of fun to get a chance to do that,” he said. “But it was real time-consuming. I really did it mostly to get me out of town while Kiffin was here (in 2009).”

    Get the man a campaign manager!

    Now Bret – The end of the Kentucky-Arkansas SEC basketball tournament final got a little feisty, with the Razorbacks’ Moses Kingsley being ejected after taking a cheap shot at De’Aaron Fox.

    Razorbacks head football coach Bret Bielema was having none of that.

    “#WoooPig also love the smiles and hugs the officials give Kentucky players when talking to them about the game and ending,” Bielema posted on Twitter.

    Kentucky would win the game.

    ICYMI – The dash-cam video of Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield being arrested was released over the weekend, and, well, Big 12 defenses might want to look into signing some of the police officers up for their defenses.

    Just take a look, if you haven’t already. And then watch 40 more times like I have. It is riveting.
