Rashard Robinson Plans To Re-Enroll At LSU

Former LSU defensive back plans to re-enroll at Louisiana State in May according to The New Orleans Times-Picayune.

It was reported in January that he was going to re-enroll in the fall of 2015 and re-join the football team in 2016 provided he is academically eligible. While the re-enrollment has moved up, the plan to re-join the football team in 2016 has not changed.

Robinson is currently enrolled at Pompano Beach Community College where he is trying to improve his academics.

Robinson was a freshman in 2013 where he played in 12 games and made 2 starts. He record 16 total tackles with half a tackle-for-loss. He also recorded one interception, which came against Texas A&M.

Last season, Robinson played in 8 games, recording 17 tackles, 1 tackle-for-loss, and one pass defended. He started six of the 8 games in which he appeared. He was suspended twice during the 2014 season starting with the season opener against Wisconsin and then again when the Tigers faced Alabama. He did not play again after his suspension against Alabama.

Colorado And Texas A&M To Play In 2020 and 2021

Former Big 12 foes Colorado and Texas A&M have agreed to a home-and-home series in 2020 and 2021 and also set dates for their series against TCU that was announced on Tuesday.

The Buffaloes and Aggies will square off with the first game in College Station on September 19, 2020. The second game will be on September 11, 2021, but the stadium has not been determined. Per Colorado’s announcement, the game will “most likely [be] at CU’s Folsom Field in Boulder but with a clause in the contract making Sports Authority Field in Denver a possible option.”

Colorado leads the series against Texas A&M 6-3 with the last meeting during the 2009 in which Colorado won 35-34.

“We feel these series with two of the preeminent schools in Texas are important for several reasons,” Colorado Athletic Director Rick George said.  “With the emphasis we put on recruiting in the state of Texas, it is vital that we return to areas both in the northern and southern areas of the state.  We played a number of road games there in the 1990s and 2000s and need to get back there, we have a good alumni base in Texas who will enjoy seeing us return, and fans of A&M and TCU travel well and will like coming to Colorado.

Lining up these two quality opponents at this time is great for us, as practically every day you read about an agreement between teams scheduling up to a decade down the road,” George added.  “Schools are scheduling tougher non-conference games in case they are in position for the College Football Playoff or to quality for a ‘New Year’s Six’ bowl game, and at the same time, you need attractive opponents to help with season ticket sales and to earn maximum revenue from your gate.”

In other news, Colorado also announced dates for their games against TCU in 2022 and 2023. Colorado will host TCU on September 3, 2022 before the return trip to Fort Worth on September 2, 2023. TCU and Colorado have never played each other in football.

Stanford To Play TCU And Vanderbilt In The Future

On Wednesday, the Stanford Cardinal announced two future opponents though the games will not start to be played until 2021. Stanford will face TCU and Vanderbilt multiple times in the 2020 to 2030 decade.

The Cardinal and TCU will play a home-and-home series in 2024 and 2027. Stanford will host the 2024 game on August 31 while TCU will play at Fort Worth on September 4, 2027. On Tuesday, TCU also scheduled fellow Pac-12 opponent Colorado for a home-and-home series in 2022 and 2023.

Stanford and TCU have played twice before in 2007 and 2008. TCU won both meetings with a 38-36 win in 2007 on the road and a 31-14 win in 2008 at home.

Stanford also announced a four game series with Vanderbilt between 2021 and 2027. Both teams will play two games at home. Vanderbilt will host Stanford on September 18, 2021 and September 6, 2025. Stanford will play at home on September 7, 2024 and September 11, 2027.

Stanford and Vanderbilt have never meet on the gridiron and the 2024 matchup will mark the first time Stanford has hosted an SEC opponent. The last SEC team Stanford played was in 1992 when they faced Texas A&M when the Aggies were a part of the Southwest Conference. The 1977 game against LSU is the last time Stanford has faced a team from the SEC while they were in the SEC.

Austin Hudson Transferring From Wisconsin

Austin Hudson Transferring From Wisconsin

Sophomore defensive back Austin Hudson has decided to transfer away from Wisconsin and closer to his home. He hails from Tampa, Florida, but there is no indication which school he is transferring to. Hudson is waiting on that school to announce his transfer.

“I have nothing negative to say,” Hudson told BadgerNation. “It was a journey I needed to make to understand where I belong and Wisconsin just wasn’t the right fit. Football wise it may have been but in terms of what I idealize, the school itself wasn’t the right fit.”

“The new staff was great,” said Hudson. “It had no effect on me leaving … It was more of a family thing why I wanted to leave and just a culture thing. I just never fit at Wisconsin.”

Hudson played in all 14 games in 2014 as a freshman. He had 19 tackles including a sack and a forced fumble. The sack came against Nebraska while Hudson recorded a career high 4 tackles against Maryland.

While Hudson was expected to see more playing time in 2015, the loss will not hurt too much with the amount of depth present. Quarterback/defensive back/wide receiver Tanner McEvoy will have snaps at both receiver and defensive back this spring. Wide receiver Natrell Jamerson is also moving to cornerback for the Badgers.

Safeties Michael Caputo and Lubern Figaro return from last season where they were both starters at the back end of the secondary.
