    NCAA recommends reduction in full-contact practices

    The NCAA is aiming to take another step to make college football safer for student-athletes. The Division I Football Oversight Committee formally recommended Wednesday that D-I programs reduce the number of “live-contact” practices from two to one per week during the season. The NCAA defines live-contact practices as “any practice that involves live tackling to the ground and/or full-speed blocking.” That includes both full-pad practices and half-pad practices (AKA “shell”) when a player wears shoulder pads and shorts.

    Ex-basketball coach indicted on forged-transcript charges

    A former head basketball coach of a New York community college has been indicted on charges he used forged transcripts to help star players transfer to NCAA Division I colleges, prosecutors said Thursday. Tyrone Mushatt, who was arraigned on an 18-count indictment, ''abdicated his responsibility as a college coach and brazenly and methodically subverted the integrity of the college athletic system,'' said state Inspector General Catherine Leahy Scott. Several former basketball stars at Westchester Community College were ruled ineligible at other schools as a result of the scandal, which was uncovered in October 2014 by The Journal News.
