Morning Six Pack: June 18, 2013 and 74 days until Alabama football

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-mU_dQP_7Xg0/UJfDXuVaYCI/AAAAAAAAEaI/2gHVYMX2KT0/s1600/msp.pngAnd three days until the start of summer? WTF? Oh well, cool off with these six cold college football stories from around the country.

The most interesting team in 2013 is the Texas A&M Aggies

I don’t always watch Texas football, but when I do, I watch the Texas A&M Aggies.

Miami commitment on turning down Urban Meyer: He 'looked like he was a baby about to cry'

"I told him no to his face, and it's got to be one of the top five reactions of someone ever. His facial expression was just so funny. My coach was tearing up and had to go in his office to laugh."

Alabama vs Texas A&M Preview: Offensive lines key to this game

Alabama vs Texas A&M Preview : This game features star quarterbacks, but look for the offensive lines to play a major role in who wins this game.


It's not a free-speech thing. You don't have a constitutional right to play football for Texas A&M or baseball for Oklahoma, and if you'd like that privilege, there are rules you have to follow. If the coach says no Twitter, your tweeting days are over.

It's one less distraction for the team, one less complication for the players and the coaches. Imagine how much you could improve as a student-athlete if you spent less time sharing every thought you have every moment you have it and more time studying. Textbooks. Playbooks. Etc.

You want to socialize? Go talk to someone, in person, or use your cell phone as - radical concept alert - a phone!

They call Twitter a social medium, but let's be honest. Does one angry man seething into his cell or his tablet really have any socially redeeming value?

Some thoughts are better left unsaid, especially if they're going to be shared with the world.
