Ryan Ohliger, Boston College kicker, has been suspended for the teams game versus the Midshipmen of Navy in the Meineke Car Care Bowl. This is his second suspension this year for a violation of team rules. his first suspension was in October as a result of a fight outside a bar, which lead to the real life Rudy story of walk on kicker and Greek Steve Aponavicius.
In the important bowl front, USC kickoff specialist Troy Van Blarcom may or may not, but probably will be, academically ineligible for the Trojans Rose Bowl game versus the Michigan Wolverines. He needed to maintain a 2.3 GPA this semester to retain eligibility, and apparently hasnt done so. Kind of brings a new meaning to the phrase idiot kicker, doesnt it?
Also, before I forget, Deadspin links us to what may or may not be, but probably is, Steelers kicker Jeff Reed's penis.
