The NCAA’s protracted investigation of Mississippi has taken a new twist within the last month – investigators have interviewed players at two or more rival Southeastern Conference schools about their recruitment by the Rebels, multiple sources told Yahoo Sports.

NCAA Enforcement representatives have visited Auburn and Mississippi State, and perhaps at least one more SEC Western Division school, this summer to speak with players who were recruited by Ole Miss. The players were granted immunity from potential NCAA sanctions in exchange for truthful accounts of their recruitment, sources said.

Former Central Florida coach George O’Leary is reportedly going to be honored with a statue near UCF’s stadium.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, the statue is expected to be completed “sometime” in 2017. O’Leary stepped down from his post as UCF’s coach during the 2015 season and the school hired Oregon offensive coordinator Scott Frost as his permanent replacement
Wow, going 81-68 gets you a statue at UCF. I wonder if they will make it with a copy of his "resume" in hand?

A whopping 2 games on TV this weekend, both on ESPN.
http://mattsarzsports.com/Schedule/Weekly/football2016/1#.V780lk0rKCg

Friday @ 10:00pm EDT - Hawaii v. California (in Sydney, Australia)
Saturday @ 7:30pm EDT - Charleston Southern at North Dakota St.

I'll skip the Friday night game, as I'll be getting back from the local High School game (playing our biggest rival tomorrow night), and I don't feel like staying up that late to watch either Hawaii or California.

I will be putting on the Saturday game though, couldn't care less about either team, but it's college football on Saturday night, the way Saturday's are meant to be. :D

Our high school has a road game, so I will at least stay up for the kickoff, doubt I make the entire game though.

Edit: The private school my daughter goes to has a road game. I forgot, the public school plays Oak Grove High at home. This may not mean much to many of you, but for the past several years Brett Farve has been acting as the OC for Oak Grove. He officially "retired" from being the named OC, but still does the job as a volunteer. I may go just to see him.

Brett is NEVER officially retired.

Torrance Gibson's Ohio State debut has taken another detour.

The program announced Monday the quarterback turned wide receiver is suspended for fall semester.

The full release:

Ohio State red-shirt freshman wide receiver Torrance Gibson has been suspended from The Ohio State University for the 2016 fall semester for a violation of the University’s student code of conduct.
Jimbo, think this hurts the Buckeyes later in the season?

Actually, from what I have read at rivals, he took a consensual picture of a girl he was hooking up with. When he apparently refused to date her afterwards she went ballistic. Who knows how true that is.

Watched both games this past weekend. So ready for the rest of the teams to kick off. Interesting note, the coach of the Charleston Southern football team was the QB at my high school when I was there. Super nice guy.

We (TN) kick off on a Thursday for the first time since the early 1900s. Not a fan of that, but I'm glad it is here. Looks like I may have scored a ticket in a suite for the Battle at Bristol.

Obviously not as smart as Chris Casher then, who deleted his video.
