College Football: Just how good was Hall?

To the naked eye, senior offensive lineman D.J. Hall looked like a man among boys on the field for Texas State. Hall dominated the line of scrimmage, creating a solid cushion for the Bobcats’ quarterbacks or opening holes for the running backs.

Well, to quantify how Hall did in 2011 as a senior, take a look at these stats.

Hall totaled 77.5 knockdown blocks and graded out at 88 or better (on a scale of 100) in seven of the Bobcats’ 12 games (Central Arkansas, Northwestern State, Prairie View A&M, Sam Houston State, Southeastern Louisiana, Tarleton State and Wyoming). He also had seven blocks 10 or more yards down field from the line of scrimmage.

On Saturday, Hall will play in the FCS Senior Scout Bowl at 2 p.m. inside Doug Shaw Stadium (Myrtle Beach, S.C.).

College Athletics: Boise State’s non-football sports back to the WAC

According to multiple reports, the Western Athletic Conference is set to announce that Boise State will join the conference in all sports but football. WAC commissioner Karl Benson will hold a press conference today at 5:30 p.m. CST.

Even though it helps strengthen all sports not called football, the simple fact remains the WAC still needs a football-playing member.
