  • Fedora: No. 23 UNC suspends 4 players for opener Aug 28, 2014 5:55 PM
    North Carolina coach Larry Fedora said Wednesday the team has suspended four players for this weekend’s season opener, a day after a report of an alleged hazing altercation that left a redshirt freshman walk-on receiver with a possible concussion. Fedora said the four players were suspended for a “violation of team policy,” but offered no other details about what rules were broken. The players suspended were sophomores Des Lawrence and Brian Walker, redshirt freshman Donnie Miles and true freshman M.J. Stewart. North Carolina has said it is conducting an investigation of what it described as an incident involving members of the team. That statement was released in response to a Yahoo Sports report, but did not confirm it was a hazing incident. “We’re going to hold all of our guys accountable for everything they do on the field and off the field,” Fedora said after the afternoon practice. “And we also have very high expectations for guys in this program, and they didn’t meet those expectations.” Fedora said he didn’t know if the investigation being conducted by the school’s office of student affairs was complete. He said he didn’t anticipate any more players would be suspended for violations that he said took place early in preseason camp. The Yahoo Sports report stated that the alleged hazing involved several players and occurred in a room at the hotel where the team stayed for preseason camp. Chapel Hill Police Lt. Josh Mecimore said Wednesday that his department had received no report from that hotel for an incident involving football players and that there was no active investigation. Lawrence and Walker were listed as starting cornerbacks on the depth chart for the No. 23 Tar Heels. Walker has three starts in his career, while Lawrence was to be a first-time starter. Stewart was listed behind Lawrence, while Miles was a backup at the “Ram” position — a hybrid role in North Carolina’s 4-2-5 defensive scheme. The Tar Heels open their third season under Fedora on Saturday night against Liberty. It marks the first time UNC has opened the season ranked in the Top 25 since 2010.

     
  • Schmidt goes from walk-on to starter at Notre Dame Aug 28, 2014 5:52 PM
    Former walk-on Joe Schmidt doesn’t believe he has made it because he is now Notre Dame’s starting middle linebacker. The 6-foot, 235-pound senior said he doesn’t ever want to feel as though he’s made it. “There’s so much more I want to accomplish, that I want us to accomplish as a team,” he said. “I have to take the same mindset every day, to attack the day, attack the practice, whatever we have — the meetings. ... I don’t really think that it behooves you to get fat and think that you’ve arrived ever.

     
  • Everyone watching as Barrett takes over for Miller at Ohio State Aug 28, 2014 5:50 PM
    There are a lot of ways to describe J.T. Barrett’s new, amplified role for Ohio State. His teammates and coaches say Barrett has taken over as No. 5 Ohio State’s starting quarterback as if that were the plan all along. It wasn’t, of course. Barrett, a freshman, got the job when two-time Big Ten player of the year Braxton Miller reinjured his throwing shoulder 10 days ago and was lost for the season.

  • Nazareth stands in Benet’s way Aug 27, 2014 11:36 AM
    When asked his opinion on the best football players in the East Suburban Catholic Conference, Benet coach Pat New answered honestly. “Nazareth’s starting lineup.” Maybe it’s not that simple, but the point is sound. Nazareth returns double-digit starters from a team that closed the season with six straight wins before losing in the second round of the Class 5A playoffs. Four returning offensive linemen, two experienced quarterbacks and sophomore running back Ivory Kelly-Martin power the offense while linebacker Decxavier Kelly — who helped hand Benet its first loss in Week 7 last season — leads the defense. In a pack of heavyweights among six playoff qualifiers from a year ago, Nazareth appears to have everything it takes to win one of the state’s most-prestigious conference titles.

A repeat drug offender, Gordon had appealed the penalty, hoping it would be reduced so he could play this season.
