Baylor’s LaQuan McGowan is a very large man. According to the school’s official roster, the Texas native is 6-foot-7 and 410 pounds.
In the Cotton Bowl loss to Michigan State, McGowan showed off his athleticism by catching an 18-yard pass for a score.
And here’s the best part of this story: The coaching staff plans to give him more snaps at tight end this year.
McGowan added to his highlight reel with a catch in Baylor’s spring showcase:
Baylor 400-pound TE Quan McGown just hauled in a quick pop pass and destroyed the FS. This is happening, guys.— Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) March 21, 2015
Don't get it twisted. Use of McGowan is not a gimmick or for show. "It's not for the notoriety, it's for the benefit of our football team."— Craig Smoak (@CraigSmoak) March 21, 2015
Coach, does McGowan need to learn how to tuck the ball? "Was that a ball? I thought it was a lemon drop. If he tucked it it might deflate."— Craig Smoak (@CraigSmoak) March 21, 2015

Former Nebraska (and current Youngstown State coach) Bo Pelini is driving a little strange these days. Or maybe it's just the rain.
Thanks a quick video from his son Patrick, Pelini was filmed driving in an interesting (and quite hilarious) position, along with a little background music from The Carpenters.
Check out Pelini’s awesome driving technique:

What did Shawn Oakman ever do to the NCAA?
The NCAA Football Rules Committee last week approved rules banning “crop tops” and “non-standard/overbuilt facemasks.” Baylor defensive end Shawn Oakman in a few games last season had both.
A player wearing a crop top tucks the bottom of the jersey into his pads, exposing the stomach. The overbuilt facemasks refer to those with four or five bars across and/or several diagonal bars across the front of the facemask.
Players with a crop top will cost their teams a timeout when they leave the game to fix their jerseys.
The NFL banned the same facemasks last season.
In other words, say goodbye to Ezekiel Elliott’s belly button and DeForest Buckner’s Bane look.
This is not allowed...
This is also not allowed.

New Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh is a Twitter superstar. That much has been established.
Now, we’ll find out if he can judge a guy should try to turn a single into a double.
Harbaugh arrived at Oakland Athletics spring training in Mesa, Ariz., on Saturday — in uniform — to coach first base for a game against the Los Angeles Angels.
Harbaugh and A’s manager Bob Melvin are friends from Harbaugh’s days in San Francisco.
The best part of the whole thing? The tall stirrups.

What does the trophy case look like for one of the most accomplished college football players of the last few years?
Digital journalists Matt Walks and Carli Krueger visualized such a trophy case for former Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota, who won a Heisman trophy, two Pac-12 titles and more in his three seasons as a starter.
“He’s bound for the NFL now, but Carli and I wanted to pay him a farewell tribute by imagining what his theoretical trophy case might look like,” Walks writes. “One of us graduated from Oregon and the other lives there, so even though he’s gone, we’re not about to forget Mariota’s legacy or accomplishments.”
The trophy case is pretty impressive. Walks breaks down each award in the case here.

College football season has been over for 52 days. A long, cold 52 days.
Thankfully, Ohio State is giving us the warm fuzzies as we all try to climb out of winter and into spring.
The national champion Buckeyes released their national championship hype video Thursday, and hit the spot.
Give it a look. It’s awesome.
(at least until Coldplay starts playing.)

Oregon State is slated to open spring practice on Tuesday, March 3, and there’s plenty of optimism surrounding the team with the hire of new coach Gary Andersen.
In addition to the new era of Oregon State football, the Beavers plan to unveil a new helmet for spring practice.
The Twitter account of Oregon State equipment’s team tweeted out this picture on Monday night of the helmets:
Who knows how much Oregon State will wear these helmets in the regular season, but this variation (with a tip of the cap to the past) is a pretty solid look for the program.
