Big Ten Football Morning Coffee: Happy Trails, Devon Smith
Rise and shine, friends. Here's what's going down in the Big Ten today.
—Penn State has cut ties with embattled receiver Devon Smith, according to 247Sports.com. Smith had been arrested in the spring on marijuana possession charges after his apartment was raided by local police, but he was never suspended by Bill O'Brien and was even listed as a starting wide receiver in the team's first depth chart in May. Smith is a senior; he's got some big decisions about his future to make now.
—Per ESPN, Ohio State won a lawsuit against ESPN after ESPN sued over Freedom of Information Act requests. On one hand, FOIA requests are incredibly important, and so is transparency in public institutions, so yeah, this matters. On the other hand, this aspect of the Jim Tressel case is so far removed from actual football that we're really not going to blame you if you don't care.
—Michigan State's having its student section (suddenly one of the most robust in the conference) vote on its matching t-shirts for the 2012 season on the official Spartan athletics website. Our advice: the first shirt. The second is right out for stealing Pete Carroll's "win forever," and he's a Trojan, not a Spartan. The third is just silly. You're not fighting, you're going to football games and cheering. You should know the difference.
—Incoming Iowa running back Greg Garmon still hasn't reported to camp, according to The Gazette. He sent a text message to Press-Citizen reporter Pat Harty saying he "doesn't know yet" when he'll get to show up, but it's logical to speculate that the highers-up at Iowa are balking at bringing in a kid who's facing marijuana possession charges. Angry Iowa Running Back Hating God is merciless, people.
