Money Trail Ties Agent, Ex-UNC Coach

Remember when Butch Davis was hired to clean up Miami's mess in the mid- to late-1990s? Remember how he had at least a semi-clean reputation because of it? Remember how good North Carolina was supposed to be this year with all the talent that Davis had put together since returning to the college ranks? All in the past. Now, as the story of hired-gun recruiter John Blake's methods has come to the surface, it's likely all downhill for Davis and North Carolina. Yahoo!'s Charles Robinson puts the pieces of a very damning story together.

Never Punt With Denard Robinson

The "Mathlete" at the popular Michigan Wolverines fan site MGoBlog has crunched the numbers and produced a handy guide for Rich Rodriguez' go-for-it decisions for the rest of the season.

Mark Ingram Undergoes Minor Knee Surgery

Defending that Heisman just got a little more difficult. Mark Ingram already had a tough road to hoe in that regard, what with Trent Richardson breathing down his neck, the Alabama passing game likely improving (and therefore eating up larger chunks of yardage) and the inexperienced Alabama defense likely giving up longer drives here and there. Now he will be missing at least one game to boot. Ingram underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee this morning and will miss, at the very least, the free opportunity for yardage known as San Jose State.
