The NCAA says it is standing by its earlier ruling that the #NorthCarolina defensive end is academically ineligible after being accused of receiving improper assistance from a tutor “on multiple assignments across several academic terms.” Next up: the lawsuit.
The “assistant principal” charged with enforcing an encyclopedia of rules (some out-dated) for college sports is putting together a committee (naturally) looking for ways to keep from embarrassing themselves again this football season.

Or maybe we should just pay everyone to play and forget about this scholarship crap? Join the discussion on our Facebook page.
First coach Jim Tressel walks away from the Buckeyes, and now their star quarterback, Terrelle Pryor has decided he’s done at Ohio State. Anybody else want to jump the sinking Buckeye ship?
