Handicapping the reopened race to snare Southfield star tailback Matt Falcon, who had his football scholarship to Michigan pulled recently (Falcon remains officially committed to UofM)

Wisconsin (2-to-1 odds) – Badgers are hungry for some Falcon meat, Wisky is Burney’s frontrunner

Oregon (3-to-1 odds) – TEAM NIKE has been in hot pursuit of his services despite his previous commitment to the Wolverines, it’s only going to amp up now, man would he look fresh in that always-immaculate Oregon gear

Northwestern (3-to-1 odds) – ‘Cats on the prowl and supposedly high on Falcon’s list

UCLA (10-to-1 odds) – If he goes out west and it’s not Oregon, expect him to be in LALALAND aka Bruin Baller Territory

Tennessee (20-to-1 odds) – The Vols landed an OAA RB stud in Johnny Kelly last year, might TEAM CREAMSICLE make it two in a row?

West Virginia (35-to-1 odds) – Probably won’t happen but could you imagine a Motown Fire&Ice backfield of the future in Morgantown of Falcon and Martell Pettaway (Det King)?

Toledo (50-to-1 odds) – “Sleeper Pick Special”
