It was the waning moments of a damp September fourth quarter, and football, as it often does, had brought out the ugly side of one of its fans. Let me preface the conversation about college cheerleading with a quick aside about cheerleading in high school.

A number of schools are considering firing their longtime successful coaches, in the hopes of getting a more successful one. Here are the five big questions to keep in mind heading into the 2015 UH Football season.

Being a Harbaugh has given him more intimate exposure to football than most coaches, but it’s what he’s learned in life, not the Harbaugh legacy, that sets Jay apart.

From a distance, it appears that Jim Harbaugh is a great coach because he is a great father, husband, son and brother, and being a great football coach just naturally follows.

Even if you aren’t into the game, football fandom isn’t just about what happens on the field anymore. This may not be technically wrong, but it’s lame.

While secondary market tickets for the College Football Championship Game are the most expensive for any college game this season, it’s on pace to be the least expensive national championship game by a wide margin.

On November 26th, the nation’s highest-profile pollster — Nate Silver of the New York Times — gave ten teams a better chance of making the inaugural College Football Playoff than the University of Wisconsin.

What this series of events does show is the chasm that sadly still exists in the experiences and therefore perspectives of most white people compared to most people of color.

There will always be those who ignore the wisdom of others, but if more athletes realize the impact of what a 40+ year retirement will look like, they might perk up their ears just a little more.

Without governance reforms that will put the players’ education and safety ahead of the coaches’ and schools’ money-making priorities, the academically elite Division I colleges’ claim to a higher ground is pure hypocrisy.

The Colorado Buffaloes come into town for a Thursday night showdown to kickoff what could be a make-or-break year for a man beginning his fourth year as head coach of the Rainbow Warriors. Michigan is a perfect fit for him because of who he is, where he is in his life and what he loves.

“‘Dusty’ and his handler will be able to search vehicles and other small areas with greater accuracy.”

. Our players will execute their responsibilities by remote control,” Head Football Coach Buddy Teevens said in a video. The magazine’s statement on the Internet was accompanied by a black and white photo of two kittens in jumpsuits firing a cannon.

Traditionally, a prank falls flat.

Likewise, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz attempted to inject some levity into the campaign slugfest, tweeting that rival Donald Trump had accepted his invitation for a one-on-one debate, before noting it was intended as a joke.

ThirdLove, a lingerie maker, partnered with DogVacay, a pet- sitting service, to unveil a line of dog brassieres. Restaurant chain Cheesecake Factory unveiled a “nacho cheesecake” dessert on Twitter but quickly assured diners it would not be available to cause heartburn in the real world. The film showed a robot, with no arms or legs, failing at football drills such as running stairs and catching passes.

This year it was the turn of Google, which rolled out a feature called “Mic Drop” that allowed users to send emails and not see the replies.

Google, a unit of Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O), turned off the feature after users complained that it caused embarrassment in work communications.

As ever, the trick for April Fools’ Day hoaxes was to try to be outlandish, yet faintly plausible.

New Hampshire’s Dartmouth College, which last year began using a robotic tackling dummy it called “MVP” to reduce the number of hits its players absorb during practice, said the robots would be used in games from next season.

There was some naked publicity around in the form of bogus ads.

“Drug interdiction has become more difficult with criminals discovering ever new and smaller areas to conceal drugs,” the department said. “Due to a bug, the Mic Drop feature inadvertently caused more headaches than laughs,” Google rued.

National Geographic, following Playboy’s decision this year to stop publishing photos of nude women, said it would no longer degrade animals by showing them naked.

“They’ll compete in the games for us … But he said on Twitter only he was backing “entropy,” or disorganization.

NEW YORK Kittens firing a cannon, a rabbit sniffing for drugs, attempts at humor on the fraught presidential campaign trail and a failed prank by Google competed for attention in the United States on Friday.

The police department in Amherst, New York, unveiled a new crime-fighting scheme, showing an officer with a rabbit on its Facebook page.

Republican presidential candidate and U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, who dropped out of the Republican nomination race, vowed to make a campaign endorsement
