As a young boy growing up in New Jersey, Eric LeGrand had a dream of one day receiving a call from the NFL saying, 'We want you.' Part of that vision included seeing himself on the cover of 'Sports Illustrated.' The circumstance surrounding both of these dreams coming true over the last 12 months is something that LeGrand could never have imagined.

In the fall of 2008 , Eric LeGrand attended his first semester at Rutgers University, where he had been recruited as a defensive tackle for the school's Scarlet Knights. In his first two seasons for Rutgers, Eric played in 25 of 26 games and quickly became a heavily-touted linebacker prospect.

In 1 year, Big 12 goes from turmoil to terrific

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - In the span of a year, the Big 12 has gone from turmoil to terrific on television once again.

A conference whose football future was uncertain with the defections of Nebraska, Colorado, Texas A&M and Missouri over the past two years has landed squarely on its feet.

The Big 12 has two teams in the top 10 and is the only conference to have eight schools with one or fewer losses. (The Southeastern Conference has seven).
