I don't have all the facts and the dust is still settling,but it seems we have some walk ons that can and will provide some needed depth at some...
How are the proposed walk ons looking at this time?
Rusty Smith released by Calgary on Sunday.
Hopes he can catch on with another CFL team or get an invite to an NFL team training camp. We hope so too!

Lestar Jean was waived by the Minnesota Vikings...I believe he is injured. Could have played a role in it.
FAU baseball, Florida Atlantic baseball, FAU owls sports
FAU baseball began a new chapter in 2009. For the first time since 1988, someone other than Kevin Cooney skippered Florida Atlantic baseball’s lineup. John McCormack, who had been an FAU baseball assistant coach since 1991, took over for Cooney, looking to continue to build what has become one of the strongest of the FAU Owls sports programs.
Cooney oversaw FAU baseball’s move to the Division I level. Under Cooney, Florida Atlantic baseball made eight NCAA regional appearances, the most among any of the FAU Owls major sports teams.
In his first year, McCormack showed he can produce similar success. FAU baseball overcame a rash of injuries to its pitching staff to finish with a 30-26 record.
Taking in a baseball game can be one of the most enjoyable ways to spend an afternoon or evening at FAU. Owls’ sports fans have grown accustomed to the relaxed atmosphere offered by the berms and the close proximity to the action provided by the bleachers. There are plans to expand those bleachers in the coming years, hoping to offer an even better view of FAU baseball.
