  • Miami DT Michael Wyche arrested for battery, suspended indefinitely

    Miami defensive tackle Michael Wyche was arrested on charges of misdemeanor domestic battery Wednesday morning.

    He has been indefinitely suspended from the team.

    Wyche was booked into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center around 5 a.m. Wednesday morning and, according to the Palm Beach Post, was still there in the afternoon waiting on a $1,500 bail. The paper also noted that Wednesday was Wyche’s 23rd birthday.

    The university said in a statement that it was aware of Wyche’s arrest and other than a suspension, the school would have no further comment.

    Wyche, a redshirt senior, is a junior college transfer that came to the Hurricanes in 2014. In 10 games as a reserve that season, he recorded nine tackles and 0.5 sacks. He played in the first four games of this season, but did not record a stat.

  • Miami QB Brad Kaaya likely to miss start against No. 22 Duke

    Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya missed practice again on Wednesday almost assuring that redshirt freshman backup Malik Rosier will start Saturday’s game against No. 22 Duke.

    Kaaya suffered a concussion in the first half of last week’s loss to Clemson and did not return to the game. Rosier took over and completed just 7 of 22 passes for 42 yards and two interceptions.

    “For me to be starting because he’s hurt is awkward,” Rosier said after Tuesday’s practice. “Of course I want to play, but I don’t want him hurt. That’s like my best friend.”

    Kaaya has not been allowed to watch film and Rosier said the sophomore has spent a lot of time at their home. Rosier said Kaaya’s given him pointers and that he feels better going into this contest against Duke than he did stepping in against Clemson.

    Rosier has taken all the first team snaps at practice this week as the Hurricanes not only attempt to shake of last week’s 58-0 loss, the worst loss in school history, but also the firing of head coach Al

  • Heisman Watch Week 9: LSU's Leonard Fournette out in front of pack

    The college football season is through Week 8, which means we have enough data to start thinking about legitimate Heisman contenders.

    Every week, Dr. Saturday will name its five Heisman contenders in order with our favorite on top. As we saw last year, the list can change pretty quickly depending on the week.

    Click for Leonard Fournette slideshow

    LSU's Leonard Fournette has been the Heisman favorite from the third week of the season and he’s done nothing since to lessen his chances. He rushed for 150 yards against Western Kentucky last week, which was his "worst" performance of the season.

    However, Fournette will have his toughest test on Nov. 7 when he takes on an Alabama defense that’s ranked fourth in the country.

    TCU's Trevone Boykin has been nothing short of spectacular this season and has been the reason TCU remains undefeated as we head into the second half of the season.

    He’ll have another chance to strengthen his hold on the No. 2 spot this week against a West Virginia defense that held him to a season-low 166

  • Texas A&M is opening up its quarterbacking competition

    Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said Tuesday that he’s opening up the quarterbacking competition after starter Kyle Allen's struggles in the past two games.

    Allen, Kyler Murray and Jake Hubenak will compete for the starting role this week and Sumlin said he’d name a starter Friday for Saturday’s game against South Carolina.

    In the past two games — both losses — Allen has thrown four interceptions
    and just one touchdown pass. Three of those interceptions went for touchdowns against Alabama.

    The offense that was steamrolling opponents at the beginning of the year has been almost nonexistent during the past couple weeks. Allen completed just 35.3 percent of his passes in last week’s 23-3 loss to Ole Miss before being benched in the fourth quarter.

    Murray has appeared in five games but did not play against Ole Miss for what Sumlin declared was a disappointing week of practice. However, several reports said Murray lashed out at offensive coordinator Jake Spivatal during thr loss to Alabama.

  • Report: UCF will pay former coach George O'Leary $200k till March 2020

    Former UCF coach George O’Leary will remain on the Knights’ payroll as a “Special Liaison to the Director of Athletics on Football Operations” and earn an annual salary of at least $200,000.

    O’Leary resigned as the school’s head coach on Sunday after the Knights started the year 0-8.

    According to USA Today, an amendment was added to O’Leary’s contract in April 2014 that allowed O’Leary to remain on the payroll until March 15, 2020. O’Leary’s liaison role requires him to work no more than 12 hours with the athletic department in any one year.

    “Following the Fiesta Bowl victory, UCF agreed to this provision in recognition of the accomplishments of the football program throughout Coach O’Leary’s career, both on the field and in the classroom,” Grant J. Heston, UCF’s vice president for communications and marketing, said in a statement.

    O’Leary could have earned up to $235,000 a year until 2020 had he stayed on as interim athletic director. However, since he resigned that post Oct. 12, that

  • Hey Miami, Ed Reed wants to be your next football coach

    It’s been less than 24 hours since Al Golden was fired at Miami, but already some unexpected people are trying to throw their names into the coaching ring.

    One of those is former star defensive back Ed Reed, who retired from a 12-year NFL career this past summer and is looking for a new gig.

    “I was like, man, maybe put my name in the mix for a coaching job,” Reed told the Rich Eisen Show. “’Cause it seems like the head coach seems to just manage everybody, manage the game, you know, and try to help the offensive and defensive coordinators make the best decisions.”

    “I haven’t received a call from a 305 number just so you know,” Reed added laughing.

    Other than being able to relate to former players, not sure Reed is the ideal candidate to replace Golden and bring the program back to prominence.

    The entire conversation between Reed and Eisen was started when Eisen remarked that unlike basketball, former football players rarely came back to coach their alma maters.

  • Baylor QB Seth Russell to have season-ending neck surgery

    Baylor quarterback Seth Russell will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a broken bone in his neck.

    Russell was injured during a four-yard run in the final minutes of a blowout win against Iowa State. He saw a specialist on Monday, who recommended surgery. Russell’s recovery time is expected to be six months.

    “Seth exemplifies the spirit and will of our football team,” coach Art Briles said, “and through this our team will keep that spirit alive and well for him.”

    This is a huge blow for a Baylor team that was not only contending for the Big 12 title, but also a spot in the College Football Playoff. So far this season, Russell had thrown for 2,104 yards and 29 touchdowns in his first season as a starter, and run for 402 yards and six scores. With him under center, Baylor was averaging 686.1 yards and 61.1 points per game.

    Jarrett Stidham, a true freshman from Stephenville, Texas, will be the Bears new starting quarterback moving forward. Stidham has appeared in all seven of

  • Idaho suspends WR Dezmon Epps after allegedly assaulting his girlfriend
