The College Football 24/7 home page and @NFL_CFB Twitter account are great ways to keep up with all the major news surrounding the college game. But what about the things that pop up on social media and don't make the headlines?
Well, we've come to answer that call by pouring over Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and other social-media networks some coaches can't pronounce to find some of the best posts each week. Here are some of the things that caught our eye this week:
It's a slow part of the year for football staffers, and many use the down time during the summer to take a vacation and get away with family. Washington State head coach Mike Leach surely will be heading off to Key West with his family at some point for some time away from Pullman, but before doing so, he wanted to take his staffers on a fishing trip. The result? Well, just some priceless photos of the Cougars' crew and a VERY large catch.

It wouldn't be much of an update if we didn't include the latest from Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston. The Seminoles' star also is a closer on the baseball team and even though the team was knocked out early in the NCAA baseball tournament, he still managed to congratulate TCU for reaching the College World Series and took a picture with a few players, too.
Georgia running back Keith Marshall tweeted out a modern-day state of affairs for young players and fans in 2014.
Why do people act like if it doesn't happen on social media it didn't really happen.. smhâ Keith Marshall (@Truthh4) June 12, 2014
The World Cup is finally underway from Brazil, and while millions of fans across the world are extremely excited for soccer's most important event, Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook apparently is focused more on football than futbol.

UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley's sister suffers from epilepsy and he's working to raise awareness of the disease. The dapper signal-caller stopped by a local event in Los Angeles to help lend his face and bow tie to the cause this week.
LSU offensive tackle La'el Collins will garner a ton of interest from NFL scouts over the coming months and based on his offseason, he figures to impress coming off the bus and on the field.
Just finish crushing a 630 pound tire after a great workout with the team! #EYEOFTHETIGER ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½â SeVeN ZeRo (@70LaelCollins) June 13, 2014
A cool thing happened this week for Auburn tight end C.J. Uzomah as he saw his dad, Xavier, graduate with a degree from the school.
And finally, Jon Gruden stopped by Tennessee this week and the Vols' coaching staff made sure to involve him in the recruitment of Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie's son, four-star defensive tackle Khalil. The former coach and current analyst apparently thought of this Hall of Famer when watching tape of Kahlil with the staff. You can read more on this here.
