There's a new sheriff in, uh, Gainesville. Urban Meyer is taking a zero tolerance approach to law-breakers on his team and he's using former UCLA coach John Wooden as inspiration. According to the article, to keep players out of trouble Meyer relies on, "peer pressure, a strong investment of assistant coaches in players' lives and a reward system that allows the coach to essentially spoil the players he likes."
This sounds like a great idea -- and one that might benefit some NFL teams -- but I wonder what happens if the Gators start the season with a couple of losses. (bugmenot/free registration required)

Ohio State's cornerback Bradley Roby wasn't rusty when he lost a match-up with Wisconsin's Jared Abbrederis, the receiver is better than you think. The reason is fluid technique trumping the stopwatch.
