Best and Worst of College Football

  • The Best: 59-year-old Mike Flynt is giving new meaning to being a college senior. He's a grandfather and a card-carrying member of AARP. He’s also got one year of athletic eligibility left. That’s why he just returned to Sul Ross State in Alpine and made the Division III football team’s roster, 37 years after he left and six years before he goes on Medicare. He's eight years older than his coach and has two kids older than any of his teammates. He could be in action as soon as Sept. 1.

  • The Worst: Taking the Red River Rivalry way too far, an Oklahoma City man has been charged with aggravated assault and battery, accused of causing extensive damage to another man's scrotum just because he wore a University of Texas shirt into a local bar. Allen Michael Beckett could be looking at five years in prison for his alleged attack on Brian Thomas. To read the whole sordid tale, check out NewsOK.
