The Bucs Buzz

In this debut edition of the Bucs Buzz, readers can find articles on cornerback Torrie Cox, former running back Ron Springs and the continued pat-down saga in Tampa Bay. This new feature brings readers links to all relevant Buccaneers stories in cyberspace — and they don't even have to leave the site.

Welcome to's new free feature, "Bucs Buzz." It's purpose? To bring you all of the news on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from cyberspace. Instead of surfing the net for hours and scanning different Web site for information, "Bucs Buzz" does it for you. All you have to do is come and see the "Buzz:" every day. And the best thing? Even as you link to other sites, your window will stay open.

As the season gets closer, the Buzz will appear daily. For now, it will appear periodically.

So what's in the buzz right now?

The Torrie Cox situation continues to develop, as the cornerback appear to be on his way to an appeal, according to this St. Petersburg Times blog entry.

You probably recall Larry Brackins, the junior college receiver that Tampa Bay made their fifth-round selection in 2005. Brackins never caught on with the Buccaneers, but he is enjoying a playoff run with the AFL's Philadelphia Soul. Soul coach Bret Munsey said Brackins' return from injury could put the Soul over the top in the playoffs.

Fans in Seattle had their protest over stadium pat-downs struck down earlier this week, certainly a relevant ruling for Buccaneers fans. Tampa is now the only NFL city with a pending lawsuit.

Speaking of the Tampa suit, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals recently found in favor of the pat-downs, though I would expect there to be an appeal. The St. Petersburg Times expressed their disappointment in this recent editorial.

And, finally, here's a USA Today feature on former Cowboys and Buccaneers running back Ron Springs. If you haven't heard the story, Springs is fighting diabetes and recently had a kidney transplant. The donor? His former Cowboys teammate Everson Walls. Read about how Springs is doing now.
