"I'm certainly very grateful for the honor, and I will be happy to accept it on behalf of the players and coaches because this is a team deal,” Coach Harms said about his inclusion in the College Football Hall of Fame. “I always got great support from our administration and I was always surrounded by a lot of outstanding people."

Gholson: McNair Jr. is not a Mustang just yet - Nick Gholson, Times Record News
Steve McNair Jr. is reportedly coming to play football at Midwestern State.  That story has been all over the Internet this week. There are even some reports that the son of the former Super Bowl quarterback has already signed with MSU.

None of this is true. Not yet, anyway.

Due to rising costs associated with running athletic events, the spouses and dependents of Abilene Christian University's faculty and staff will have to purchase tickets to attend any of the college's sporting events for the  2012-2013 academic year
