    Default Stories Around the NCAA

    Former Notre Dame linebacker Tom Reynolds stepped forward today and explained his decision -- made with the support of 50 other former Irish players. "By definition, a good football coach does not lose games when he has superior talent on the field, and at least splits the games where the talent is approximately equal," Reynolds wrote according to the Tribune.

    "Considering the W-L record of Coach Weis at Notre Dame, one would have to conclude he is serving an internship as a head coach of a college football team, which is defined as "any formal program to provide practical experience for beginners in an occupation or profession. (Random House Unabridged Dictionary)

    "Thus, the supportive internship-development sign of his efforts accurately summarizes his easily documentable learning situation."

    There seems to be a rash of "throw the coach under the bus" lately.

    Tressel for Michigan

    Michigan's Rodriguez has support in Big Ten

    September 2, 2009 11:30 AM

    Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

    As an outside law firm investigates allegations of NCAA time-limit violations at Michigan, Wolverines head coach Rich Rodriguez has received support from several Big Ten teams, including archrival Ohio State.

    Buckeyes head coach Jim Tressel said he often feels like chaining the doors to the Woody Hayes Athletic Center to keep players from spending all of their time there. Michigan faces accusations from former and current players who say they far exceeded NCAA limits on football-related activities both in-season and out of season.

    Blount suspended for remainder of 2009



    It may not have been as swift as some would have liked, but the punishment for LeGarrette Blount was certainly about as harsh as you can get.

    Head coach Chip Kelly announced after practice this afternoon that Blount had been suspended for the remainder of the 2009 season for his sucker punch of Boise State's Byron Hout and subsequent meltdown on teammates, coaches, fans and stadium security.

    Not only does this end Blount's season, it also ends his collegiate career as the running back is a senior.

    Not so bad for Blount - he will still go high in the draft, without the risk of a Senior year injury. I somehow suspect that missing his senior year of classes will be a pain he will somehow endure.

    Kelly isn't kicking him off the team, he said yesterday that he'll still expect Blount to practice with the team and to go to class.

    Is that like getting laid off, (not fired) from your job but are expected to show up and not get paid??

    More or less, but if he sticks with it this year maybe it helps alleviate the "character" black marks that may hurt his draft stock this spring.
