    A college football news roundup that includes Minnesota head coach P.J. Fleck explaining his constant energy and the Arkansas senate’s ruling on allowing guns in Razorback Stadium.

    Sometimes I have difficulty trying to come up with what to talk about in this opening paragraph, while other mornings it just comes to me instantly. Usually, while getting ready for work, I try to pick my brain and see what strikes me hilarious or interesting and then I get halfway to work and realize that my shirt is inside out and I am only wearing one shoe. I should really make a list of topics I want to talk about for these so that doesn’t happen so often.

    In college football news, Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema has faith in new defensive coordinator Paul Rhoads, Texas is actively recruiting former LSU quarterback Brandon Harris, and we explain to SEC haters why fans are “sorry, not sorry” for their conference pride. Here are some other newsworthy notes in the latest college football news roundup.

    Bringing The Juice – We all know that Minnesota head coach P.J. Fleck is an energetic guy, but the reason why he seems to always be running on high is simple.

    “My wife tells me this all the time – the tough part about the standard is that you are the standard,” Fleck explained. “If I don’t have the energy how can they? How can our coaches? That’s not something I try to do. I think a lot of people say ‘he’s just trying to be like that.’ I am just me, and I like being me. I don’t have to be anybody else. I don’t want our coaching staff to be anybody else and the players are the same way. The culture demands a certain amount of energy from everyone.”

    Common Sense Prevails – Phew! Before any violence could take place at Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, the Arkansas senate took a vote and decided to not allow registered guns to be allowed on the premises.

    One representative who was against the rule allowing it was Greg Leding.

    “People like to have a good time before the game, during the game, people get emotional and angry during the game,” Leding said. “I think the idea of introducing loaded weapons into those situations is just ridiculous.”

    SEC fans, it is safe to go back to see your team play the Razorbacks.

    Another Volunteer Transfers – Tennessee and head coach Butch Jones has lost another play to transfer, this time in linebacker Gavin Bryant. The redshirt sophomore is exploring his options, but is no longer listed on the roster. He joins Stephen Griffin, Charles Mosley, and Dimarya Mixon as players that have left Knoxville this offseason.
