Duke Attorneys Say Their Team Stinks

Don't expect new Duke coach David Cutcliffe to take this news on the road when he goes recruiting. In court this week, Duke attorneys successfully argued the school's team is so bad that it need not pay damages for backing out of a series with Louisville. Because the contract called...

Carroll Placed On House Arrest

Just like the other division I-A football coaches this spring as they don't like the so-called Saban Rule that prohibits head coaches from going on the road during the spring recruiting period. USC's coach said he felt caged by the rule and believes it prevents him from gaining the knowledge...
