- Press Taylor (Zac’s bro) is making a name for himself by leading Butler Community College to the National Title game. Like his brother, he is being recruited by Marshall, but the article hints that the Huskers may have some interest:
Press is big (6-foot-2, 200 pounds) like his brother. He doesn’t have Zac’s rocket arm, but he moves more effectively in and out of the pocket.

- SI article on the Single Wing in which Joe Gibbs admits to stealing the Counter Trey from Tom Osborne:
Gibbs, just retired from his second stint as coach of the Washington Redskins, was discussing his legendary Counter Trey, the foundation of the power running game that helped the Redskins win three Super Bowls from 1982 to ‘91.
“We stole it,” said Gibbs. “We saw some film on Nebraska, and Tom Osborne was doing some really innovative things with his line up front, and we were watching it and thought, God, that’s good stuff.”
