ATLANTA — Conference realignment means more work, less academic time for unpaid athletes. The callous disregard for the welfare of athletes by college sports leaders who are chasing money has become too much even for Missouri football coach Eli Drinkwitz. In May, Drinkwitz lamented the supposed negative effects of athletes earning what he considers to be too much money for the rights to their ...
LOS ANGELES — The Kelly Plan. It has a nice ring to it, but it will never happen. Chip Kelly's idea about how to steer the college sports enterprise away from fully losing its soul — having top football schools be classified as independent and playing by their own rules, allowing the rest of the sports to be grouped together regionally as they used to be — is simply too logical for college ...
It is unclear if a four-game suspension Michigan proposed to settle a case involving recruiting violations by football coach Jim Harbaugh will be accepted by the NCAA Committee on Infractions. Michigan received notice earlier this year that the NCAA was investigating impermissible texts and calls — including some by Harbaugh — to high school prospects during part of a pandemic-related dead period for contact with potential recruits.
No matter the position group, Nebraska's coaches have led an intense, competitive first two weeks of fall practice. "Their mentality brings a lot out of us," said one defender.
Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and the NCAA were working toward a negotiated resolution regarding violations alleging Harbaugh misled NCAA investigators, but multiple national reports on Saturday indicate that has been derailed. What this means is the case involving Michigan and Harbaugh, who faces a Level I allegation by the NCAA that he lied and misled investigators who were looking into Level ...

SEATTLE — Dear Big Ten football fan, The drive from Chicago to Seattle spans 30 hours and 2,000 miles, which feel like many more. It's a seven-state expedition along Interstate 90, a methodical western quest. It cuts through the University of Wisconsin (your other UW) and Sioux Falls, S.D., where Kalen DeBoer once made his name. It weaves through corn fields and rivers and quarries — and over ...

Iowa coach: 'Dealbreaker' if players bet on Hawkeyes' games
Georgia’s new offensive coordinator is hardly a stranger in these parts. Mike Bobo played quarterback for the Bulldogs back in the 1990s. He worked on Mark Richt’s coaching staff for more than a decade, including a lengthy stint calling the plays. Despite all that familiarity, Bobo might be under more scrutiny than anyone associated with the two-time defending national champs. His task is straightforward yet daunting: Keep Georgia’s offense rolling toward an unprecedented third straight title.
The realignment frenzy in college athletics is all about football. And all that money, of course. There is barely a consideration of how these seismic changes will affect every other team on campus. From grueling road trips to missed classes to mental health challenges, it’s hard to see anything positive in all this dollar sign-driven nonsense if you’re an athlete who doesn’t happen to suit up for the pigskin squad. While football is driving the realignment train, it’s the sport that will be least affected by coast-to-coast conferences and travel times between member schools.
From setting the edge to pass rushing and dropping into coverage, Nebraska's "Jack" linebackers have a lot of responsibilities. For Chief Borders and Jimari Butler, that's a plus.
In the dog days of training camp, a defensive coordinator balances urgency, patience, and the need to channel his inner CIA agent. Sam McKewon gets a sense of how Huskers DC Tony White is prepping for the "8/31" battle vs. Minnesota.
