So, what if Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones gets injured? Who will take snaps for the Buckeyes? True freshman Stephen Collier is on deck, according to Cleveland.com. The staff wants to redshirt the kid, but they are bringing him along just in case. A former three-star prospect from Leesburg (Ga.) Lee County, Collier maintains that he’d be capable in the event the Buckeyes need him. If they do, it will be on college football’s biggest stage. “What’s it like to be No. 2?

How small can we go before we are using every piece of material we put in?” With smallness as their target, a team of UMD chemists and material scientists worked together to develop a “nanopore” battery. Essentially, that involves taking a microscopically thin ceramic sheet pierced with millions of tiny
