12.5.2013 Daily Bears Report: Saying Goodbye to Floyd Casey Stadium

So I completely forgot going into today that I had to do the DBR. That's why it's late. But we're here now and all is fine.

Just as an update -- Peter, Prashanth, and I recorded Episode 25 of the Podcast last night.  I'm excited about it.  Other episodes have been good, but I think this one will be great.  We talked about the game, about getting pumped for the Tailgate, and everything else.  Peter even put together a special feature for this week's game that I think you're really going to like, if you like things that are awesome.  If you don't, you probably don't listen to the podcast, anyway.

I'm going to lead off this morning with this week's Breaking Madden, the latest in a series that you should stop whatever you're doing to read right now if you haven't been reading it already.  I mean right now, like don't even finish this sentence.  Just click on the link below and go.

Breaking Madden: A land where 'offsides' has no meaning -
Fumbles are glorious, but over the last few decades, they've been on the decline in the NFL. Let's bring them all back. All at once. And let's destroy as many rules of man and God as we need to.

Most of the other News of the Day deal with our beloved Floyd Casey Stadium, which will see its last Baylor Football game this coming Saturday.  I know the potential for bad weather has scared a few Bears fans into potentially skipping the game, but I hope most will decide to brave it, regardless.  The old girl deserves to be sent out in style.


Jameis Winston press conference means indictment unlikely -
The prosecutor investigating FSU quarterback Jameis Winston has announced a press conference without telling Winston of any charges. That means there probably aren't any charges.

I agree with this, for whatever that's worth.  I don't think they call a press conference a day ahead of time unless they've determined that they have insufficient evidence that a crime took place.  The presser will give them the opportunity to talk about how seriously they take sexual assault allegations, maybe address the accusations of malfeasance by Tallahassee PD, and put the whole case to rest.
