ST. LOUIS — The third preseason game was a nice bounceback for the St. Louis Rams. Coach Steve Spagnuolo wants to see more like that, and plans on using starters in the final tuneup.
Scores | Standings | Stats | Roster | Schedule | Transactions | Injuries | Depth
Normally, most first-stringers play sparingly if at all in the last preseason game. Because of the lockout, the Rams have plenty to iron out before the regular season.
Even if they’re 3-0.
The Rams go for their first perfect preseason since moving to the Midwest in 1995 on Thursday night at Jacksonville. Spagnuolo’s not impressed with the record, and also wants starters to get another shot of game-day anxiety before the season opener Sept.Tags: Starters, Starters May

Welcome to the Mountain West. Now leave your jerseys at the door. Boise State’s new conference has made the following decree: the Broncos cannot wear their all-blue-on-blue uniforms during home games in conference play. Think back and recall new San Diego State coach Rocky Long’s statements back in April, when he claimed that Boise’s all-blue look — blue shirts, blue helmets, blue pants, blue field — gave it an “unfair” advantage. To Long, the monochromatic color scheme made it difficult to scout Boise in advance, since the players did not stand out on film, and it takes player at least a quarter to get used to the field. According to Long.
When he made his statement during the Mountain West’s spring conference call in April, it seemed like a throwaway: Long just nudging the new guy a bit, more or less. That it becameTags: Boise State’s, State’s

I hinted at more departures late last evening, and the first of those has already become official. Former Michigan recruit John Gibson has signed with the Kitchener Rangers.
Gibson is the second straight high-profile goaltending recruit to back out on a commitment to Michigan in as many years. Last year, the Wolverines lost highly-touted goalie Jack Campbell to the Windsor Spitfires.
That leaves the Wolverines with just fifth-year senior Shawn Hunwick returning, and nobody lined up behind him beyond that. Unless the Wolverines can find a very last-minute replacement, walk-on Adam Janecyk will likely back up Hunwick.Tags: Gibson, Gibson Next

Oregon’s athletic director says the school is conducting an “extensive review” of the football program’s use of outside recruiting services.
Athletic director Rob Mullens acknowledged the review in a statement Tuesday before Pac-12 media day.
The Ducks say they’ve retained a law firm to assess the program. They’re conducting the review in collaboration with the NCAA and the conference.
The Ducks paid $25,000 to a Houston-based recruiter last year for an apparently outdated scouting report, and the NCAA is investigating whether the recruiter steered star running back Lache Seastrunk to Oregon.Tags: Extensive Review, Recruiting Service, Service

One loyal reader asked that this preview be led with a picture of Eric Stoltz from the 1997 film Keys to Tulsa, so there you go.
Tulsa has been so good since 2003 that the program has done the previously unthinkable: erased any taste of a generation-long nadir — 60-119 from 1987-2002 — from our collective consciousness. Believe me, this is no small feat. Those days, which we can define as the Henshaw-Rader-Henderson-Burns era, were dark indeed for the nation’s first program to notch five consecutive January bowl berths. So where is Tulsa today? Eight years later, a period we can call the Kragthorpe-Graham era, the Golden Hurricane are knocking at the door to a very exclusive club: Boise State’s in that room, as is T.C.U., for now. It’s thTags: No 40, Tulsa

The Virginia High School Coaches Association All-Star Game is always a showcase for the top baseball talent.
It’s only fitting then that Bradley Strong of Richlands will be there.
One of the area’s most skilled hitters over the last four years, Strong will be one of six players from Southwest Virginia to suit up for the West in the annual event tonight at 7 p.m. at War Memorial Stadium in Hampton, Va.
“It’s an honor just to be selected,” Strong said. “Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to start and get some innings in. It will be a great way to finish up.”
Mike Wood , Caleb Daniels , Wes Hughes , Clint Chafin and Scott Pennington will also play, while Virginia High’s Mark Daniels will serve on the West coaching staff.
Strong will need no introduction to the other players on the roster for tonight’s game. He’s traveled acrosTags: Strong

For former BYU standout Jackson Emery, the choice to leave basketball behind was a difficult one to make, but he’d always been prepared to make it when the right time came.
He just didn’t necessarily expect it to be right now.
“It’s hard to be going 100 miles per hour one way and then switch and go a completely different direction,” he said.
“When the season ended, my whole focus was on finding a future on the court. That was my goal and my plan,” Emery continued.
He had a dozen or so solicitations from agents, and after narrowing his choices down to five, he finally selected Ben Pensack.
After that, they both went to work.
“He told me to keep up my workouts, stay in shape and work on my game,” the player said.Tags: Came, Came Timing

Is it better to be lucky than good? Who knows. It most definitely is better to be lucky than a little better than average, however. Michigan State ended last season ranked among the top 25 nationally in two significant categories: passing efficiency and punt returns. The Spartans ranked higher than fourth in the Big Ten in only four categories: passing offense, pass efficiency defense, net punting and punt returns. The Spartans tied for the conference title yet led the Big Ten in only net punting and punt returns. Not to hammer the point home, but Michigan State finished fifth or lower in the 11-team Big Ten in the following categories: rush offense, total offense, scoring offense, rush defense, pass defense, total defense, turnover margin and kickoff returns.Tags: Michigan State, State
