News & Notes

(Firstly, thanks to my buddy Daniel of for the concept/layout of this series of posts. He runs an excellent site, and I am much appreciative of his permission to borrow his concept.)

News & Notes:
     NPF: The Chicago Bandits announced the resigning of Danielle Zymkowitz for the 2013 season. This will be the popular infielder's third season with the team. You can read the full article here.
     MLB: The Cubs continue to add to their surplus of mediocre-at-best veteran starting pitchers with the signing of the "D-Train", former Marlins star Dontrelle Willis. He is the 6th pitcher that the team has signed this off-season (Scott Baker, Scott Feldman, Cory Wade, Jensen Lewis, Edwin Jackson are the others).
     NCAAF/SEC: The SEC's star newcomers, the Texas A&M Aggies absolutely walloped the Oklahoma Sooners in the Cotton Bowl on Friday night. The 41-13 final score doesn't even reflect the total and complete domination that the boys from College Station had over the Sooners. Box score here.
     NFL: The Buffalo Bills became the second team to fill their head coaching vacancy (after the Chiefs, who hired Andy Reid) with the hiring of former Syracuse coach Doug Marrone. Despite a .500 record as the Orange HC, Marrone was responsible for a drastic turnaround in the program. He replaces Chan Gailey in Buffalo.

Question of the Day:
[Post your answer in the comments] Will any more of the NFL coaching vacancies be filled by a coach from the college game?
