As we get into the college football season, I’ll be posting more prospect analysis as I conduct research for the 2012 Rookie Scouting Portfolio, which will be available here for purchase in the early spring.
A new thing I’ll be doing on the blog is sharing what I’ve been reading, listening, and viewing each week – football, fantasy football, and non-football.
This week includes:
- Important research on football safety.
- Footballguy Jason Wood’s well-reasoned thoughts on WR Brandon Lloyd.
- A poetic view of blue collar life by the great Phillip Levine.
- A barking cat.
- Grammy Winning bassist-singer-composer Esperanza Spalding.
