Adam Zagoria is wondering whether Mike Teel deserves a standing ovation this weekend. I said as much last week, I think Teel does, given what he's been through this year, and his great performance against Pittsburgh. That being said: the schedule gets easier during the next few weeks. Teel SHOULD look better. That doesn't change the fact that he was awful for two months, and it does not mean that everything is going to be ok. On the other hand, Teel definitely is capable of playing better.

Greg Schiano is no Joe Paterno at least in one department: the FEC has no records of Schiano making any political donations. C. Vivian Stringer has given $250 to Barack Obama (she also has given money to Chris Dodd, and to her close friend Buster Soaries when he was running for Congress a few years ago). A search also reveals that RU Athletic Director Robert Mulcahy has made several donations in recent years to local candidates for House and Senate. As far as RU alumni go, Gary Brackett has also given $250 to Obama.
