This is the story of what happens when a naïve 15-year-old prodigy collides with an upward-reaching football program, some of whose players feel like they own the campus. Brittany Benefield started college at age 15 with the dream of finishing law school before she turned 21. Didn't quite work out that way, and hers is an amazing story. Take the time to read this, and think about it. Would you fault her parents, for letting her get into something she wasn't ready for; the university, for letting this get out of control; the football program, for running roughshod over the school; or Brittany, for her own decisions?

A feel-good story for the holidays, involving a pro football player. Warrick Dunn of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers makes the down payment and furnishes homes for single mothers and their children in Tampa Bay and his native Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This program has now been copied by NY Giants' Jason Sehorn. (more inside)

The players tried to take the field, but the marching band refused to yield.

The players tried to take the field, but the marching band refused to yield. Sounds kinda like the plot of "Revenge of the Nerds", with the jocks led by Ogre and Ted McGinley's character taking on Booger, Poindexter and the rest of the Tri-Lambs. Can't the band and the jocks just get along?
