Former Minnesota running back Jeff Jones is facing some serious charges. Jones, a former top 50 recruit, was charged with felony drug possession on Friday. Jones was found with cocaine in his sock and loaded handgun under his seat. On top of that, he was wanted on a felony narcotics charge stemming from an incident in Iowa.

Jones landed at Iowa Western Community College after leaving Minnesota in December. Jones was kicked off the Iowa Western team in April for violating team rules. In addition to the Iowa narcotics charge, Jones was also arrested for assault with intent to inflict serious injury in March.

Chase Ferris, a running back from Palmer, Alaska, made the decision to play football at Division II University of Mary after a successful bear hunt. For real.

If he did not successfully track down the elusive bear he'd crossed paths with before, he says would have given up football and attended the University of Wyoming. Instead, he will head to the Bismarck, North Dakota school to continue his football career.

Two men (one of whom was shirtless) were captured on surveillance cameras stealing from Williams-Brice Stadium at South Carolina. Police are searching for the culprits.

Dartmouth head coach Buddy Teevens spoke to Congress Friday about concussions and his program's elimination of full-contact practices. Dartmouth also uses innovative mobile tackling dummies during practice. The Ivy League as a whole banned tackling from practices earlier this year.

Two former Navy football players, including standout quarterback Keenan Reynolds, were given the go-ahead to continue their NFL careers.

Baylor provided an update, sort of, on the independent review into its handling of sexual assault cases on campus. The review was completed by a Philadelphia law firm, but Baylor has not released any of the findings.

After originally making the decision to transfer from Notre Dame, the program announced Friday that tight end Tyler Luatua will remain with the Fighting Irish.

New Mexico State's football-only Sun Belt membership will not continue after the 2017 season, but the school concluded a drop to the FCS level would have been costly. Instead, the Aggies will move forward as an FBS independent.

It looks like Cody Thomas' decision to leave the Oklahoma football team to focus on baseball is paying off.

Thomas, a quarterback, appeared in 10 games over the 2014 and 2015 seasons for the Sooners. Thomas is third on the Sooners with six home runs this season.
