Navin Kumar grew up idolizing the character Steve Austin on TV’s “The Six Million Dollar Man.” Played by Lee Majors when the show first aired in the 1970s, Austin possessed traits that a young Kumar envisioned himself having one day. He wanted to be bionic. “I was a huge fan of the show, and I wished I could have mechanical and electrical stuff inside me,” he said. Now, Kumar, a 1997 graduate of the University of Maryland (B.S., computer science) has gotten his wish and then some. At the age of 41, Kumar proudly wears the nickname “Bionic Man” in
Michigan held its media day Thursday, and Jim Harbaugh fielded a few questions from children in attendance. One question was about milk consumption. Watch it inside.

Nebraska hosted its much-anticipated annual Fan Day on Wednesday night at Memorial Stadium. Thousands of Nebraska fans attended the event, and, as is the case every year, there were several cool moments captured. Like, the expression on the face of the young boy in the picture above.

This is an interesting piece from Yahoo! on the AAC, which hopes to one day join arms with the Power Five conferences. Good luck with that. Even UCF coach George O’Leary has his doubts. “We can do that (pay cost of attendance) for a couple of years,” UCF coach George O’Leary said. ”We obviously can’t sustain. When you are not getting a $35 million check, it’s hard to have that cost of attendance and keep up with everything.” *** Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio visited ESPN yesterday for a “car wash.” And, time and again, he was peppered with questions
