CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) North Carolina has reported secondary violations to the NCAA within the football program involving multiple players.
In a statement Wednesday night, UNC athletic director Bubba Cunningham says the NCAA has deemed the violations to be secondary in severity and that the school has "taken appropriate disciplinary action." The statement didn't specify the nature of that action or the violations.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford expects an eventual new national rule requiring colleges to list all inactive or ineligible college players for game day following the recent Supreme Court ruling striking down a federal law barring gambling on college sports.
Swoffford doesn't anticipate the rule will be established until the 2019 season, he said Wednesday at the ACC Kickoff media days.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) Matt Rhule feels like he has a completely different job going into his second season as Baylor's coach.
More of his focus can now be on actual football. So much time in his first year was spent working to change the culture in the aftermath of a sexual assault scandal that happened at the school before he got to the Waco campus.
