Declared and Revealed
When your Heisman hopefuls aren't racking up yards on Saturdays, they're going to class just like other students (in theory). With that in mind, Bleacher Report lists the majors for these six Heisman frontrunners.

Imagine, if you will, that you live in a college town, and that one day the school's football players suddenly show up at your front door and offer you a $25 season ticket for all five home games.

Are You a "My Buddy Has it Player"?
Not all video gamers are the same, which is why Next Round's providing a guide to help you figure out which kind of NCAA Football 2009 player you are.

Twitter Gets You Out of Jail
When Berkeley grad student James Buck got thrown in jail for taking pictures at an Egyptian protest, he sent a quick tweet to his network that said "arrested." Within 24 hours, his friends had gotten him a lawyer who sprung him from jail. Now, Buck is trying to create a global network help line for people in similar situations.
