BYU offensive coordinator Robert Anae somehow has found free time in one of the world's busiest professions to master the art of flaming baton twirling.

And, while USC continues to navigate a tumultuous stretch given the Steve Sarkisian situation from last weekend, let's bring some happiness back to L.A. with this inspirational story on blind long snapper Jake Olson, who is seeking NCAA clearance to play.

Most folks have seen the insane workout videos from DeVonte Wilson, a supposed Kansas football player.

The videos might be unreal, but Wilson is not a football player for the Jayhawks. He is a student at the school who is not on the roster. However, his comments make it seem he'd answer the phone if coach David Beaty came calling.
