Exiled from Florida State because of multiple off-the-field issues, cornerback Greg Reid looks like he will land at Valdosta State for his final year of college football.ESPN reports that Reid sorted through his options and is in the process of enrolling at the school located in middle Georgia.Reid was dismissed from FSU for a violation of team rules — and it was not his first offense. As a three-year starter and a top special teams player, Reid had to be a malcontent for coach Jimbo Fisher to kick him off the team. But to maintain any credibility within his team, Fisher had little recourse, for Reid found himself in trouble several times during his Seminole career.Most recently, Reid was arrested a few weeks ago and charged with driving with a suspended license, a seat belt violation and misdemeanor possession of marijuana, according to the Lowndes County (Ga.) sheriff’s office. Reid told police he had no knowledge of the marijuana found in his car.Last fall, Reid was on perjury charges for lying to police about the identity of a man who fled the scene of a traffic stop on a scooter. That charge was later dropped. However, he was suspended last year for an undisclosed violation of team rules.Last season, Reid played in 11 games and started nine. He made 32 tackles and had two interceptions, along with 563 kick return yards. He moved into second place in school history with 89 career returns and 1,117 return yards and was named one of three most valuable players on special teams at Florida State’s annual banquet.Last Tuesday night in Lake Park, Ga., Reid was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and driving with a suspended license.For Fisher, that was it. Now Reid apparently has found a new school. But for how long?
(PhysOrg.com) — The Le Mans endurance race is a 24-hour competition that features cars that typically have an engine that comes in at over five liters. One team, known as the Project 56 group, has created a car that has an engine with only 1.6 liters. The car, which has been dubbed the DeltaWing concept car, manages to run with its reduced engine capacity by significantly improving the aerodynamics of the vehicle and reducing the weight of the car to increase the fuel efficiency.

The cars 1.6-liter turbocharged engine is roughly 300 horsepower, which is about half of the horses found inside the engines of a typical competitor at Le Mans. The car also features a slim front end attached to a narrower track than the rear, which makes the car aerodynamic and makes the car easier to move forward. The car seats two, a driver and a backup driver. The technology in concept cars that tests well at Le Mans has a decent chance of showing up in production cars, though no plans have been made at this time. © 2010 PhysOrg.com The cars has been given the 56th spot in the 2012 24 hours of Le Mans races starting grid, a spot usually reserved for experimental cars that are powered by a variety of alternative technologies. Since the race is about endurance, as much as it is about staying power as it is about speed a car in any spot has the potential to win the 24 hour long race. This spot is good for a car that is high on fuel efficiency, since the race rewards cars that have to make fewer fuel stops.
