Found November 22, 2012 on Rumors and Rants:
PLAYERS: Reggie Bush
TEAMS: Miami Dolphins
Former USC running backs coach Todd McNair essentially had his career ended by the NCAA’s punishment of the school’s football program. The NCAA ruled that McNair “knew or should have known” about payments from a wannabe sports agent to running back Reggie Bush, despite a serious lack of evidence. Now McNair is suing the NCAA, claiming the organization’s investigation was one-sided and his career was hurt by it’s report on the scandal. On Wednesday a judge in a Los Angeles court agreed, and ruled that the NCAA was “malicious” in it’s investigation of McNair and USC. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Frederick Shaller denied the NCAA’s appeal to throw out McNair’s lawsuit, and his 10-page ruling was scathing. He claimed – among other things – that emails between an NCAA worker and a person who works in the agency’s appeals decision “tend to show ill will or hatred” toward McNair. Shaller also said he was convinced that the actions of NCAA investigators were “over the top” in t

Bold Prediction: The Dolphins Will Trade Reggie Bush By Season End

As a starting running back in the National Football League, Miami Dolphins' running back Reggie Bush has had a horrible 2012 campaign. Bush has only crossed the 100 yard mark in rushing once this season, and that was against the lowly Raiders' defense. Bush has only managed 82 rushing yards in the last three games, while also coughing up a fumble which in turn resulted in...

Judge: NCAA 'malicious' in USC case

The NCAA was ''malicious'' in its investigation of a former Southern California assistant football coach who was linked in a report to a scandal surrounding Heisman Trophy-winning tailback Reggie Bush, a judge said Wednesday.

Carroll and Bush meet again as Seattle faces Miami

When Reggie Bush got his chance to face Pete Carroll in the NFC playoffs two seasons ago, he couldn't wait. It was the opportunity to show off before his former college coach when injuries in the New Orleans backfield left Bush as the featured back. Then Bush carried the ball just five times and was left watching Carroll celebrate the Seahawks' upset victory of the then...

Dolphins’ season will be a success, even if it fails

The Miami Dolphins started this season will the lowest expectations of any team to succeed with the exception of the Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts. The Dolphins spent most of the offseason cleaning house with the most notable changes being the trading of wide receiver Brandon Marshall to the Chicago Bears, cornerback Vontae Davis to the Colts and release of safety Yeremiah Bell...

Dolphins Division: Dolphins slide continues, Pats off and running

The Miami Dolphins were once 4-3, but that was a long time ago my friends.  The Dolphins currently sit at 4-6 and are now 3 games behind the Patriots in the AFC East.  The rest of the division isn’t doing much better, since the Bills and Jets are tied with the Dolphins for 2nd (and last) place.  Since all 4 teams were tied at 3-3, the Pats have gone 4-0, with the rest of the...

Forte, Bush no-gos for Week 12

Harmon Rankings: QB , RB , WR , TE/DEF I can't wait to review the Sit/Start questions that crop up on Sunday morning following the three Thanksgiving games. A number of players put up ridiculous stat lines in support of their fantasy owners (don't forget to thank Bill Belichick) and staked owners to substantial leads in their pivotal Week 12 matchups. I suspect that there...

Pitiful Picks: Thanksgiving Day Style!

The Miami Dolphins coaching staff rearranged the Dolphins practice schedule this week to give the players off for Thanksgiving.  The Dolphins practiced on Tuesday, a day that they are usually off, so that they could spend Thanksgiving with their families.  Hopefully, the Dolphins coaches ‘family’ approach will pay off as they continue preparations for the Seahawks tomorrow...

Miami Dolphins: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#19)

Last week: 16 (-3) Record: 4-6 Ryan Tannehill was awful last week at Buffalo, going 14 of 28 for 141 yards, 1 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions, but he was a rookie quarterback on the road on a short week. Still, it’s safe to say that any early hype about him is dead now that they’ve lost 3 straight. In his last 3 games, he’s gone 59 of 105 for 648 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 5...
