Opinions vary greatly on the proposal, which will reduce the number of full-padded, contact practices in camp. If there’s anyone who knows the byproduct of a preseason camp with limited physical contact, it’s Ken Niumatalolo. Many know the story by now. The Navy coach outlawed contact during the Midshipmen’s camp last August out of an abundance of caution and uncertainty surrounding the on-field spread of COVID-19. For four weeks, Navy players practiced, for the most part, flag football. Contact was almost strictly limited to banging against sleds and cushioned dummies. Helmets were mostly unscuffed, and shoulder pads were left in pristine condition at the end of camp. Players even used cushioned shields to...

    New Green Bay Packers wide receiver Amari Rodgers says why he picked the Clemson football program over the Tennessee football team for college. Now that he has been drafted by the Green Bay Packers, former Clemson football star Amari Rodgers explains his logic by not staying home to play for the Tennessee football team. Rodgers put it very bluntly by saying that he picked Clemson over Tennessee because he wanted to win. Shots fired! There was some debate on him coming out of Knoxville Catholic High School if the Vols even offered him. As it turns out, they sure did. Rodgers did make the right choice to go play for a fantastic wide receivers coach in Dabo Swinney down in Clemson. The rest is history.

    A former college football offensive line coach filed a lawsuit earlier this week in the hope of getting his job back after he was canned for a derogatory tweet about Georgia politician Stacey Abrams.

    Alabama football’s 2021 NFL Draft output was out of this world, tying Miami’s 2004 record for the most first-round picks from a single school. If sometimes it feels like Alabama could field a team in the NFL all by themselves, it’s probably because they’ve gone crazy producing draft picks under Nick Saban. With a surge of picks each year, the Crimson Tide are not playing around when it comes to catching up to those NFL Draft factories. They’re not far from challenging the Buckeyes.

    The Cincinnati Bengals take Ja’Marr Chase with the fifth-overall pick, reuniting him with his LSU teammate Joe Burrow. Joe Burrow went from decent college quarterback to the best player in college football seemingly overnight. He led the LSU Tigers to the National Championship and won the Heisman Trophy despite being 40/1 to win going into the season. So, what helped Burrow go from an afterthought to a certified star? It was the emergency of a certain wide receiver that helped him become that star. Ja’Marr Chase put together one of the greatest seasons for a receiver in the history of college football in 2019. He caught 84 balls for 1,780 yards and 20 touchdowns. In the National Championship Game against the Clemson Tigers, he put up 221 yards and two touchdowns. Now, they are together again when the Cincinnati Bengals selected Chase with the fifth-overall pick in the NFL Draft.The...
    Georgia football head coach Kirby Smart shares his thoughts with ESPN’s Paul Finebaum on potential College Football Playoff expansion. It comes as no surprise that Georgia football head coach Kirby Smart had some interesting things to say with ESPN’s Paul Finebaum on the idea of potentially expanding the College Football Playoff from four teams to upwards of maybe even 16. For the last four years, Smart has guided his alma mater to four straight New Year’s Six bowls. Georgia has competed in three of the last four SEC Championship games and made the College Football Playoff in his second season in charge in 2017. However back in 2018 and 2019, his Dawgs were among the first two teams out of those respective College Football Playoff fields. It is totally understandable that a talented head coach like Smart would be in favor of expansion. Kirby Smart offers his current thoughts on potential @CFBPlayoff expansion:...

    Matt Campbell, Iowa State Cyclones. (Mandatory Credit: Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports) This is how a 16-team College Football Playoff field would have played out last season. With the College Football Playoff potentially expanding to as many as 16 teams in the coming years, let’s take a look at how a 16-team format could have played out a season ago. Even though there are an infinite number of possibilities for how the playoff field could expand, for the sake of simplicity, we are going to use the final rankings released by the Selection Committee, taking the top 16 teams and pairing them up against each other, regardless of conference championships or league affiliation.

    Nick Saban didn’t need to coach in the NFL to leave his mark on the league. Even though he was on three different NFL staffs over the course of eight years, Nick Saban never needed to coach in the league to make an indelible impact on it. So if we want to speculate what Saban’s NFL Draft history will become once he retires and joins a major network as a college football analyst, we are looking at him having over 200 players drafted, well over 50 guys going in the first round, probably over 25 making Pro Bowls, close to 10 of these players being quarterbacks and around four of them making it into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Julio Jones may be the only lock for Canton enshrinement of the 135 Saban players drafted to date, but Henry needs about another two years of elite play to make...
    It’s happened before. An elite athlete who only played college basketball giving football a shot at the professional level. And the Raiders are hoping to make it work again, signing Carson Williams as a tight end on Monday. Williams played college basketball for Northern Kentucky and Western Kentucky, and was a big-time high school star. He hasn’t played football since eighth grade. But he’s 6-foot-5 and 240 pounds, and was impressive at Western Kentucky’s Pro Day, where he had a 38-inch vertical leap and ran a 4.73 40-yard dash. Now he’ll see if he can follow the path of guys like Antonio Gates, who didn’t play football in college but were able to excel in the NFL anyway.

With the 2021 NFL Draft rapidly approaching, these former college football stars will likely have to wait until day two to hear their names called. While only 32 players are lucky enough annually to hear their names called on Thursday night, many other top prospects will have to wait until Friday night or even Saturday afternoon to find out what NFL team they will begin their professional career with.

    The College Football Playoff could potentially be expanded to 16 teams in the coming years. Though College Football Playoff expansion feels inevitable at this point, expanding to 16 teams is just flat-out ridiculous. Going from four to six would allow two more teams to get in, regardless if they are a Power 5 champion. However, if the playoff expands to eight, that would likely guarantee six automatic qualifiers from the five Power 5 champions and a Group of 5 champion. Automatic qualifiers will ruin the regular season. Again, expansion will inevitably make its way into the College Football Playoff because money is involved. College football fans will learn to adjust to six and then eight teams over time. However, anything beyond that will make a complete mockery of the sport. The reason college football is the best is that the regular season matters so much. Do not let it become college basketball....

Widely considered the best overtime, the NCAA announced a big tweak that will change how college football operates beyond the fourth quarter. Beginning this season, teams will have to go for a two-point conversion starting in the second overtime. Previously, teams didn’t have to do this until the third overtime.

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — The Southwestern Athletic Conference is moving its championship game to a neutral site. The league announced Wednesday that the May 1 game between Alabama A&M and Arkansas Pine-Bluff will be played at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Jackson, Mississippi. It was initially scheduled to be played on the campus of the highest ranked team. SWAC Commissioner Dr. Charles McClelland said the league made the move because of COVID-19 cancellations that had directly affected both teams. He said the canceled games would have helped the SWAC determine a host school using its tiebreaker policy. “Without having the ability to thoroughly evaluate both teams using that policy we felt the only fair and equitable decision that could be made was to move the game to a neutral site location,” McClelland said. ___ More AP college football: https://apnews.com/hub/college-football and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25 Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

Just watch Smith’s impressive high school tape: Smith just looks bigger and faster than everyone on the field in that video. It takes a whole defense to bring him down. Even when the cornerback is in good position, Smith would still win the battle thanks to his ball skills and body control. No wonder Smith ranked as a four-star in the class of 2017, ranking No. 62 nationally in the 247Sports composite. The folks at 247 knew something other...
    CLINTON, S.C. (AP) — Presbyterian has announced that football coach Tommy Spangler won’t return to the Football Championship Subdivision school. Athletic director Rob Acunto said Wednesday that after a review, it was determined the “change in leadership was in the best interest of PC and its student athletes.” Acunto said the school has begun a national search for Spangler’s replacement. Spangler was in his second stint as Presbyterian football coach. He went 42-24 from 2001-06, leading the program to the NCAA Division II Playoffs in 2005 before the school moved up to FCS. Spangler returned to the school as its defensive coordinator in 2013 and was elevated to head coach after the 2016 season. He was 12-28 the past four seasons, including a 4-3 mark in the recently completely spring season after not playing this past fall due to COVID-19. The school currently competes in...
    SEATTLE (AP) — Washington outside linebacker Zion Tupuola-Fetui, a third-team AP All-American selection last season, will miss the next six to 10 months after tearing his Achilles tendon in practice last week. Washington coach Jimmy Lake said Wednesday that the Huskies are not ruling Tupuola-Fetui out for the entire 2021 season as of yet. Tupuola-Fetui is expected to undergo surgery later this week. Despite playing just three games last fall, Tupuola-Fetui was a revelation in his first season as a starter for the Huskies. He had seven sacks and 13 tackles. He also forced and recovered one fumble. The loss of Tupuola-Fetui is another big blow for Washington’s defense heading into the 2021 season. The Huskies previously announced that outside linebacker Laiatu Latu was forced to medically retire this offseason due to a neck injury. ___ More AP college football: https://apnews.com/hub/college-football and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25 Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

    Jim Steinman, hitmaker for Meat Loaf and Celine Dion, dies This chart shows the deluge of corporate spending on technology since 1980 In the fall of 2003, a Utah quarterback named Brett Elliott dove for the pylon in the final seconds of a September game at Texas A&M. If he crossed over the goal line, the Utes, led by first-year coach Urban Meyer, would force overtime and potentially land a breakthrough victory. Instead, Elliott took a monster hit, fumbled and broke his wrist. He lost the game, his starting job and never took another Division I snap. Such began the career of Alex Smith, as no one could have predicted that moment would indelibly alter Utah football and college football in general for the next generation and beyond. Prior to making his first start, Smith was best known for handing the ball off to Reggie Bush at Helix High...

    Long before the Big Ten had 14 teams and the Pac-8 had grown to the Pac-12, there were folks in college sports tossing around the idea of a national football conference. Back in the 1950s, Pittsburgh athletic director Tom Hamilton proposed Southern California, UCLA, Stanford, California and Washington join up with Army, Navy, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Penn State and Air Force to form an Airplane Conference. Nowadays, there is constant speculation about the Power Five conferences and their 65 member schools breaking away from the NCAA. Despite all the chatter and threats, the chances of that happening soon are slim. Though a broad restructuring of Division I and r e-imagining of the way schools align their sports programs is probably a good idea. But what if college football’s most powerful programs tried to do what is happening now in European soccer, where a group of the wealthiest and...

On Monday Washington waived Love after he failed to log an NFL carry in two seasons. The hope in Washington was that Love could spend a year recovering from the devastating injury and contribute by his second season.

    A European Super League-style setup looks like the future for college football. What would it look like, and how could CFB avoid some serious pitfalls? The soccer world was thrown into disarray on Sunday when a European Super League involving 12 of the biggest clubs in the sport came to light. That’s great for the teams involved, but it leaves literally everyone out in the cold. Sorry, UCLA. Sucks to be you, Oklahoma State. Tough luck, Iowa. As for programs whose entire operating budget depends on out-of-conference matchups with major powers? They’d be hit the hardest. The biggest problem soccer fans have with the ESL is the idea of the rich getting richer while other levels of the sport suffer. With guaranteed membership for 15 powerhouses, everyone else would be left with scraps. That’s something college football would do well to avoid. Instead of ensuring decades of membership for the...
    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Virginia coach Bronco Mendenhall said Monday that wide receiver Lavell Davis Jr. and linebacker Chico Bennett Jr. have sustained ACL injuries during spring practice and will be sidelined until at least November. Davis, a 6-foot-7 sophomore, was expected to be a major contributor on offense this season. He caught 20 passes for 515 yards, a 25.8-yard average last season. That was the second-best average in the nation. He also had five touchdowns in just eight games. Bennett, a junior transfer from Georgia Tech, was being counted on to contribute at linebacker, Mendenhall said. The coach said one of the injuries was sustained without contact and the other was a contact injury, but declined to say which was which. “Those are the only two players that have been injured to this point,” Mendenhall said. ___ More AP college football: https://apnews.com/hub/college-football and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25 Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press....

    Auburn football head coach Bryan Harsin had a lot to say about quarterback Bo Nix’s performance in the Spring Game on Saturday. If Auburn football wants to find their feet quickly under new head coach Bryan Harsin, the Tigers need quarterback Bo Nix to turn a corner. Of course, there will be time for Harsin to nitpick the performance after he takes a look at the tape. For the time being, he didn’t have much to complain about. The junior quarterback has spent the last two years as a starter making plays with his legs but trailing where he needs to be as a passer and game manager. He followed up his nine-win freshman campaign with a 6-5 record in 2020 while throwing just 12 touchdowns to seven interceptions. His quarterback rating for the season ranked ninth in the SEC.

For those unfamiliar with the rule, it prevents head coaches from leaving their campuses during the spring evaluation period during recruitment. Saban is one of the best recruiters and keeping him off the road during the spring only hurts college football. Saban believes that some coaches just are not all that interested in recruiting.

Coast resort struggles with Covid For the players who sat out in 2020 to protect themselves (and others) from COVID-19, the choice not to play another game before the draft was a complicated and fraught one. So far Gregory Rousseau has interviewed with more than 20 NFL teams in the lead-up to this month’s draft, and so far each video call has followed a similar line of inquiry. “Just different voices every time,” the former Miami Hurricanes defensive end says, “but it’s the same stuff.” First the team officials on his Zoom screen start with small talk, lobbing softballs about his football background. “Like, ‘Walk me through your high school, walk me through getting recruited to Miami,’ ” says Rousseau, 21, a Coconut Creek,...
    FREMONT, Neb. (AP) — From a distance, it looks like college kids in sweat clothes tossing a football around on a campus green space. Draw closer, and it’s apparent this is no sandlot game. A coach is explaining routes he wants receivers to run on a play he calls “Bingo.” Then he tells his quarterbacks to make quicker decisions. Next he demonstrates how a receiver in motion sets up as a blocker next to the center and the running back takes a handoff and heads for a hole that should open on the left side. The women Jaison Jones is coaching listen intently and ask lots of questions.

    It’s a point of pride that stretches across dozens of universities, many of them rivals, and all the college sports leagues, many of which compete for the same dollars and the same talent. As one banner on the Pac-12 conference's website puts it: "Olympians made here." The coronavirus pandemic, along with the substantial changes in the college-sports business model that will come into play as soon as this year, have led many leaders in both the college and Olympic worlds to wonder if that will still be true a decade from now. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM In one question from a survey sent by The Associated Press to Division I college athletic directors across the country, nearly 65% of those who responded said "Yes" when asked if the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee should pay part of the bill to the universities that run sports programs that, in turn, feed...
    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama has hired Drew Svoboda as special teams coordinator and tight ends coach. Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban announced the hiring Monday of the former Memphis and Rice assistant.

    Quarterback JT Daniels is approaching the 2021 college season with the Georgia football program the right way. JT Daniels may be the unquestioned starting quarterback for the Georgia football team, but the former five-star recruit is going about his first full season as the starter in the right manner. If Daniels is all business when it comes to leading this offense, then Dawg Nation should be trilled.

    College athletes will someday soon be permitted to be paid sponsors, social media influencers and product endorsers. Change is imminent, but not everyone in college sports believes it is for the better as athletes get closer to earning money from third parties for use of their name, image or likeness (NIL). In an Associated Press survey of Division I athletic directors, nearly 73% said allowing athletes to be compensated for NIL use will decrease the number of schools that have a chance to be competitive in college sports. Nearly 28% said many fewer schools would be competitive. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "NIL will be a game changer for all," one respondent said. "Many will get out of college athletics as this is not what they signed up for. Schools should resist NIL and go Ivy (League) non-scholarship model. I do not see why NIL is good...
    Clemson football needs D.J. Uiagalelei to make the most of this offseason. Head coach Dabo Swinney laid out what he expects from his quarterback. No one in college football has bigger shoes to fill than D.J. Uiagalelei in 2021. “His body is nowhere near mature as it’s going to be as he continues to grind in the weight room and nutrition,” Swinney said, pointing to Uiagalelei’s youth coming out of his true freshman season. Uiagalelei was called into action twice last season, performing well in a win over Boston College and a loss to Notre Dame. He had four touchdowns and no interceptions between the two games. But it was clear he has plenty of room to grow. He won’t be able to match Lawrence overnight. The head coach is confident he’s not asking too much of his quarterback. “I can tell you this about D.J.: whatever we tell him,...

    With Porter Moser becoming the next head coach of the Oklahoma basketball program, the Sooners rivalry with the Texas Longhorns has undeniably intensified. By hiring Porter Moser, the Oklahoma basketball program has a head coach who can more than hold his own vs. new Texas basketball coach Chris Beard in Big 12 play.

    Alabama football coach Nick Saban had an epic line about how he views offensive coaches at the college level. Saban is a former defensive back, and it’s not a secret at all that he’s a defensive expert. What does he think about modern coaches speeding the game up? He thinks they’re like terrorists. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) The seven-time national champion said the following in a video tweeted Thursday by @JamesALight: You guys are all part of the Taliban, man.
