See that new block up there? The Daily Chop? That’s the newest addition to ScalpEm.com. Bill “From Tampa” (as many of you know him) has graciously allowed me to tap into the feed of his daily set of web links about Florida State & FSU Athletics. It’s a quick and easy way for you to [...]

The Sun-Sentinel offers up reasons (click Read More for the rest of the article) that we should hope this was “just a bad trip” for Wyatt [...]
