Rockets' Red Glare, Bombs Bursting in Air

Toledo lost six scholarships in the offseason because it scored a dismal 853 on the NCAA's Academic Progress Report. While it's clear Rocket players are failing to make the grade, we now have evidence of plagiarism by the marketing department. In what appears to be a ripoff of arguably the most famous poster in history, Coach Tom Amstutz strikes an Uncle Sam-like pose in an attempt to rally the troops. Report immediately to the Dean's office and bring your marketing playbook! The list of posters featured thus far: Vanderbilt-Tennessee, Washington State-Washington, Brigham Young-West Virginia-Northern Illinois, Oklahoma State, Northwestern, Louisiana State, UCLA, Ohio State, Mississippi State, Auburn, South Carolina, Arkansas, Florida State, Florida, Iowa State and USC. Send a link or image of your team's effort to dawizofodds (at) aol.com.

Mangino v Amstutz. Sumo rules.

As Peter Swan (Liam Neeson's character in The Dead Pool) would say, "It's not a ripoff, it's a homage."
