Morning Six Pack: May 06, 2012

Razorbacks' Wilson Checking Schedule For Return Trip To Manning Passing Academy

Tyler Wilson's development as a quarterback has included hours of film study of how NFL greats play the position. Wilson has also found himself noting things as simple as how the pros carry themselves walking into a room.

Student charged with negligent homicide

A Yale University student has been charged with negligent homicide five months after a fatal tailgating incident before a college football game, in which a truck he was driving hit three women, killing one of them.

Bad Moon Rison again in East Lansing

Nearly a quarter of a century after putting the finishing touches on one of the most prolific receiving careers in Michigan State history, Andre Rison is returning to his collegiate football home.

In an interview with the Flint Journal, Rison confirmed that he will be joining the Spartans’ coaching staff and will serve as a student assistant coach in 2012.  Arguably the best part of this story?  The student part is an apt part of his title; 30 hours short of receiving his degree when he left MSU following the 1988 season, Rison will be fulfilling a promise he made to those very near and dear to him that he would go back to school at some point and earn his degree.

Bill O’Brien wants Pitt back on annual schedule

Penn State and Pitt will be renewing their once long-time rivalry with a home-and-home in 2016-17, but a two-game series still isn’t enough for new Nittany Lions coach Bill O’Brien. Speaking with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, O’Brien said he’d like to play the Panthers more often, preferably every year.

Badgers RB Ball ticketed at Mifflin Street party

Madison police say Wisconsin running back Montee Ball has been ticketed for trespassing during the annual Mifflin Street block party.

At a meeting of the University of Tennessee Athletics Board on the morning of the Vols’ spring game, it was announced that season ticket sales were down for the third straight year and the football budget was taking a hit.
