Frank Beamer Justin Fuente S – Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood was suspended 3 games for contacting a professor about the academic eligibility of a player. Lovie Smith was announced on March 7 as the new head coach at Illinois. Spring football, scheduled to start March 11, will be postponed until Smith is able to complete his staff. Cubit was the interim head coach during the season and was named the permanent head coach on November 28, just before the Illini completed a season with a loss to rival Northwestern. Cubit reportedly had a 2-year deal. Cubit stepped up when the school fired Tim Beckman on August 29, a week before the season opener at home against Kent State. Beckman’s dismissal was triggered by an investigation into player mistreatment which revealed he allegedly meddled in medical issues and inappropriately treated athletes who left the team but remained on scholarship. Cubit was the offensive coordinator under Beckman, and was previously the head coach at Western Michigan where he compiled a record of from , and Widener College from

Boss’ orders, he says. Two-time Super Bowl-winning coach Jimmy Johnson, then in his fourth season at Oklahoma State, has sent his ambitious graduate assistant to do some scouting of the rival Sooners, which means that in addition to timing kickers and punters and tracking distance, Nutt has to get his hands a little messy. His task is simple: Look around and try to find every bit of information he can.
And with wins and losses hanging in the balance, he and the rest of Johnson’s GAs know to leave no stone unturned — even if that stone is buried underneath a discarded cheeseburger. Nutt can laugh about it now — and does — but back then that kind of dirty work was normal. Sometimes all he’d find was garbage, but other times he’d stumble upon a discarded depth chart or a play sheet with a few notes scribbled on it that had been carelessly left behind, he says. It’s that chance discovery, no matter how small and no matter how consequential, that feeds into a larger sense of paranoia that has been pervasive among college football coaches dating back to the beginning of the sport and continues today.
Everyone is looking for an edge, and everyone is guarding against giving up theirs. Pete Carroll may have oozed cool as the head coach of USC from to ’09, but his former offensive coordinator Norm Chow admits that the two-time BCS championship winner was “unbelievable” when it came to his level of paranoia, believing everyone to be crooked. Not only did Carroll employ assistants to look for discarded play sheets — “and they actually found some,” Chow said — but he took it a step further by having staffers leave behind fake sheets in the garbage in hopes that opponents would find them and act on bad information.

Christian college football players charged with trying to sodomize a freshman and leaving him naked in a park plead not guilty A hazing incident has led to charges of aggravated battery, mob action and unlawful restraint 1 year ago US Wheaton College football players have pleaded not guilty to brutally hazing a freshman by trying to sodomize him, stripping him and beating him up.
Wheaton College students Kyler Kregel, Benjamin Pettway, Samuel Tebos and Noah Spielman have been charged with aggravated battery, mob action and unlawful restraint after allegedly entering a freshman’s room, duct-taping his wrists and ankles, putting a pillowcase over his head, punching him in the ribs, trying to sodomize him with an object, and dumping him half-naked in a park off-campus.
The freshman teammate, who withdrew from Wheaton and now attends a school in another state, said he tore both his shoulders in the ordeal. He has since had three surgeries as part of his recovery. The freshman added his teammates continued to restrain him as they pulled down his underwear, then attempted to insert an object in his anus. Investigators heard how he shouted at them to stop and was beaten up, left with bruises and scratches.

He’ll play next season for the Utes. In the two years since Ricks College football became extinct, Dixie State and Snow have taken advantage of the void by bolstering their respective rosters with athletes who, in the past, probably would have enrolled at Ricks. Snow and Dixie are splitting those players Ricks used to get. They’ve made a big impact for us and for Snow. Needless to say, Dixie State and Snow, two highly successful junior college programs, will go head-to-head for the services of those players.
Then again, the sword cuts both ways. The Rebels and Badgers lost a huge rival in Ricks.

After the game on Thursday, the Clemson guys frankly told the Carolina students that if you bring this poster, which is insulting to us, to the big parade on Friday, you’re going to be in trouble. And naturally, of course, the Carolina students brought the poster to the parade. If you give someone an ultimatum and they’re your rival, they’re going to do exactly what you told them not to do. The immediate aftermath resulted in the stoppage of the rivalry until Stoney played on the team.

Point/Counterpoint: Paying College Athletes
Corey Clement, RB, Wisconsin. Clement has a tough act to follow, given that he’s replacing 2, yard rusher Melvin Gordon and will have to run behind a line that loses three starters. Still, there’s little reason to ever doubt the Wisconsin running game, especially with former Badgers offensive coordinator Paul Chryst returning to run the show.
Even in playing behind Gordon last year, Clement somehow ran for yards and nine touchdowns on carries, averaging 6.

July 21, at While we won’t speculate about where these potential future NFL stars will go in the draft one day, it’s not too soon to take a peek at their game tape and start to stack them as the top players to watch. Of course, there is still plenty of work to be done in evaluating each player during and after this season. Of the linebackers I’ve studied, here are the top 10 to watch.
Josey Jewell, Iowa Jewell is a downhill combatant whose first two steps are almost always toward the line of scrimmage. He’s a tackling machine, but he’s also done a nice job of knocking passes away in coverage. His draft stock will have a cap due to a lack of reactive athleticism and speed, but he’s strong and extremely consistent. Florida State’s Matthew Thomas has the physical attributes, but his motor is inconsistent and he has only one year of production.
Fred Warner, BYU Listed at 6-foot-4, pounds, Warner stands out due to the amount of time he spends playing in space against pass-happy offenses on the BYU schedule. He has been a linebacker dating all the way back to his high school days, but he moves more like a big safety out on the field.
