NCAA hits Rutgers with failure to monitor after investigation into drug testing

Following a lengthy investigation, Rutgers has now learned its NCAA fate. The NCAA ruled Friday that the athletic department failed to monitor the football program's drug-testing program over a five-year period, former coach Kyle Flood failed to monitor his operations staff, and Flood failed to promote an atmosphere of compliance by contacting a special instructor when making arrangements for a student-athlete.  As a result of the investigation, Rutgers will receive two years probation from Sept. 22, 2017, through Sept. 21, 2019. Flood, who is now the offensive line coach for the NFL's Atlanta Falcons, also received a one-year show-cause from Sept. 22, 2017, through Sept. 21, 2018. Self-imposed

Mizzou offense must raise it a few notches against Auburn

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Last week was a bad week to be a Tiger in the Southeastern Conference. LSU was blown out by Mississippi State, Missouri scored just three points in a loss to Purdue and Auburn struggled mightily to put away FCS opponent Mercer. No. 15 Auburn (2-1) and Missouri (1-2, 0-1 SEC) will face off Saturday, with coaches Gus Malzahn and Barry Odom among the SEC coaches currently on the hot seat. Auburn has struggled with a dormant offense, which posted just 117 yards against Clemson and committed four turnovers against Mercer. Missouri's defense could provide a cure, since it has allowed an SEC-worst 443 yards per game this season. "We're hoping we get it going offensively," Malzahn said.

Samfords Hodges back where it all started

Hodges took the reins in a road game at Western Carolina two years ago and hasn't surrendered them since as he and the 18th-ranked Bulldogs return to Cullowhee for what should be a shootout with the Catamounts on Saturday. Hodges threw for 277 yards and his first collegiate touchdown in relief of Michael Eubank on Oct. 17, 2015, in a loss to The Citadel, and seven days later he found himself under center from the get-go at Western Carolina.

Can anybody unseat Alabama in the SEC Why hasnt Christian Kirk had the impact everybody expected

Question: What have you made of Texas A&M's defense so far this season? Better or worse than you expected? Ben Baby: It's actually slightly better than I thought it'd be, but it's worth noting two of A&M's first three games came against non-"Power Five" opponents. Starting linebackers Otaro Alaka and Tyrel Dodson have looked decent at the beginning of the year, and defensive coordinator John Chavis continues to bring different blitzes to produce pressure.  But SEC play will truly test where this defense is at in Chavis' third year. Remember that A&M is starting two true freshmen in the secondary and is without senior Donovan Wilson indefinitely. If the secondary struggles and the defensive line

Ohio State QB the latest to tweet about NCAA rules after estimate of programs value

Don’t kid yourself if you think players aren’t becoming more and more aware of the NCAA’s flawed system. Earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal cited an analysis that the Ohio State football team would be worth $1.5 billion if it was a sports team available for bidding on the open market. OSU backup quarterback Joey Burrow clearly saw that report.
