Harbaugh effect: Michigan school store wants alumni to know khakis are on sale

What kind of an impact is new football coach Jim Harbaugh having at Michigan? For one thing, the university is all about khakis now. In an e-mail sent to alumni Friday morning, Michigan's official retailer announced that all regularly priced items are currently 20 percent off. The point of emphasis, though, was the staple of Harbaugh's wardrobe. At least, for the sake of the Michigan...

Previewing UConn’s Offensive Depth Chart

Last week I wrote about the offense that Bob Diaco and Frank Verducci will have to work with next season. This time, the defense will be magnified and we’ll look into the hybrid formation that the Huskies run. During the 2014 campaign, UConn’s defense helped them compete in close games, but it was usually the offense that couldn’t capitalize and give them the win. The defense...

A Glimpse at the ACC Quarterbacks of 2015

For the last two years, Atlantic Coast Conference quarterbacks have been defined by one player: Jameis Winston. Winston was the biggest story on and off the field for the Florida State Seminoles and the conference. He helped bring a national championship to the ACC for the first time since 1999. This year’s crop of ACC quarterbacks may not have a Winston, but the college football...

LSU Charged With Recruiting Violations Because a Commit Changed His Mind

Les Miles is probably not in a good mood. His program was hit with a recruiting violation, but it wasn't his fault nor the fault of anyone on his staff. It's because the NCAA knows there is a hole in the rules, but rather than do something about it the NCAA just warns teams of the possibility of a violation should a certain scenario develop.Sure enough, that scenario developed for...

TCU same approach going into spring after Big 12 title

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) TCU coach Gary Patterson never really dwelled on the Big 12 co-champion Horned Frogs getting left out of the first four-team College Football Playoff. Patterson wasn't exactly surprised by the snub, and quickly focused his team on the Peach Bowl. Now less than two months after a 42-3 bowl romp over top-10 Mississippi to wrap up a 12-1 record, the Frogs start...

USC Football: The invisible quarterback competition

With the beginning of spring practice just around the corner and the USC football team entering camp with a redshirt senior Heisman contender perched at the top of the depth chart, the quarterback group will engage in a lower profile competition—albeit, for an important spot.  The winner of the number two spot behind incumbent Cody Kessler will be all but crowned the heir to the...

Video: Michigan Cornerback Blake Countess One-Ups Jabrill Peppers With This Crazy Backflip Routine

Michigan’s Jabrill Peppers is a crazy athlete, and may wind up as one of the best corners in the country if he pans out, based on his potential entering college last year.

Wisconsin Badgers Spring Football 2015 Preview: Tight Ends

Last season the Badgers pass game could’ve been a real disaster if it weren’t for the improving and solid play of the tight end position. Wisconsin’s second-leading receiver was tight end Sam Arneson, who had 29 receptions for 387 yards and a team-best four touchdowns. Things will be different this season though, as Arneson is gone and so is blocking tight end Austin Traylor...

LSU Has A Walk-On QB On Its Roster Whose First Name Is “Tiger”

A walk-on quarterback recently added to LSU’s roster is probably the most-appropriately named player in the history of the program.  Meet Tiger Scheyd, a 6-foot, 179-pound redshirt freshman QB who became a member of Les Miles’ program this spring.  Scheyd is surely deserving of his spot on the roster, but even if he’s not, his first name alone is reason enough to become a...

(Yes, Fleetwood Mac) No PITT fan likes it when a young man, who mutually agreed with PITT to enroll as a student athlete leaves the program.
