*** Sadly, Ronnie Brown’s season is over. The Dolphins officially announced him on injured reserve as a result of a “foot problem” suffered in Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay. Get better, brother. War Eagle. Enjoy the trip Down Under. — [JDH – 6:28 p.m.]

*** Strange days in Athens, Ga. — “We have pig men. Feel the pain in the basement.”
I saw it. My friends saw it. You saw it. Friends of the Program did too. It has to be discussed. Don’t be alarmed … Be very, very frightened. There is a pig man in Athens. And he has good seats.
And Clemson fans, when visiting lovely UGA, watch out for the S&M hijinks of the Chi Phi fraternity at 290 S. Lumpkin Street!
University of Georgia police are investigating a visiting student’s claim that he was held captive and beaten in the basement of an on-campus fraternity early Sunday morning.
The 18-year-old Clemson University student, in town for the Georgia-Auburn football game, ran into the street about 3:20 a.m., yelling for help outside the Chi Phi fraternity, 290 S. Lumpkin St., UGA police said.
The officer who found the student reported he was very drunk, incoherent and crying, but also was cut and bruised, and his clothes were wet and dirty.
The Clemson student told police he was involved in a fight earlier at a bar downtown, then was “held against his will in the basement of the Chi Phi fraternity where he was not allowed to leave and was physically assaulted,” according to the police report.
