It was all set to be a very quiet Slate for a Friday morning during football season. Very, very quiet. And then...
BREAKING NEWS, of the non Kansas State variety: Ohio State has announced that Chase Young is suspended indefinitely, and most definitely from the Maryland game tomorrow, while they investigate a potential NCAA violation from last year which places his eligibility in jeopardy. Young has arguably been the most entertaining and dominant player to watch this season, so this is huge, huge news. (via Phil Harrison at USA Today)
WHOA NELLIE, TWITTER GONE BE FUN TO-DAY.
That out of the way, onto Wildcat news.
Over at Burnt Orange Nation, Gerald Goodridge chats with some guy named JT VanGilder about the big game tomorrow.
At the Merc, Ryan Black reports on the availability of James Gilbert and Jordon Brown for tomorrow’s game, and on how they felt about watching the Kansas game from the sidelines.
As is normal on a Friday morning, Kellis Robinett answers reader questions in the Eagle, and checks in on how current student coach Mike McCoy is doing now that he’s retired as a player.
Adam Holtorf is really glad he got moved to center as a freshman, reports Corbin McGuire in today’s Sports Extra.
Zach Barnett at Football Scoop is reporting that sources say Ron Prince, who had already been placed on administrative leave due to allegations of player abuse, has in fact been fired by Howard. Prince’s coaching career is likely at an end, with a cumulative record of 18-28.
Robinett took a moment away from football to give a close look at Peyton Williams and her ability to excel at both volleyball and basketball. Williams added another pre-season watch list nod to her list for the year, giving her a clean sweep: she’s been named to the Wade Trophy watch list, and friends, that is basically the Heisman Trophy of women’s college basketball.
