    Figured I would start a thread for 2017.

    Another sexual predator at Baylor:

    Baylor indefinitely suspended senior CB Travon Blanchard after he was accused of multiple acts of violence against against a woman.

    A restraining order has been placed against Blanchard on behalf of the woman. "The Baylor Athletics Department is aware of a complaint made against Travon Blanchard through the McLennan County District Attorney's Office," Baylor officials said in a statement on Tuesday. "Immediately upon notification on February 7, the appropriate campus student-conduct process was initiated and Blanchard was suspended indefinitely from all team related activities, pending the outcome of the investigation." The affidavit alleges that Blanchard, in addition to physical violence, "controls many aspects of the applicant's life."


    And some good news in Colorado:

    Colorado is viewing sophomore RB Beau Bisharat "as potentially a key piece to their offense" in 2017, reports Buff Zone's Brian Howell.

    Bisharat, a four-star recruit in the last cycle, has packed on 5-10 pounds of muscle to his 6-foot-2, 215-pound frame. Mostly used as a blocker last year, Bisharat gained 45 yards on 15 carries. "I definitely see him playing a lot and being able to carry the ball and do some things," running backs coach Darian Hagan said. "He just has to stay consistent. Late in the season, you saw how we started using him more because we had a lot of confidence in him and that confidence hasn't gone away. He'll be a guy that gets to do a lot of things." Bisharat could win the short-yardage specialist role behind starter Phillip Lindsay. "He's a big back," head coach Mike MacIntyre said. "He kind of gives us a changeup. He'll have a role for us this year for sure at running back."

    The more I watch Illinois 2017 recruit running back Mike Epstein the more I think we have another potential Christian McCaffrey on our hands. The kid can slash and he is extremely fast. I hope Hatie Smith uses him early and often.

    Don't hold your breath. See Brock Forsey if you need insight on how Hatie views white RBs.

    Here's a trip down memory lane:
