The article presents information on several recent developments related to football in the U.S. Purdue coach Joe Tiller is taking heat for saying that he should have "reined in expectations" this preseason when the Boilermakers were a vogue pick to be a national title sleeper. Mississippi coach Ed Orgeron hasn't been shy about running off players who don't buy into his philosophy. Now the same can be said about his assistant coaches. Mountaineers assistant head coach Rick Trickett had to recruit football player Pat White twice to get him to come to Morgantown--once to lure him from a previous commitment to LSU and once to keep him from professional baseball.
