Four of five Wheaton College football players charged with battery in the hazing of a teammate at the suburban Chicago school have pleaded not guilty. The arraignment for the fifth player is Nov. 13. Each was charged last month with aggravated battery, mob action and unlawful restraint.
Jeff Brohm spoke with reporters Monday coming off Purdue's 14-12 loss at Rutgers. The Boilermakers play Nebraska Saturday. • Don't expect linebacker T.J. McCollum or left tackle Grant Hermanns to return to the field soon, Brohm said. McCollum's injury — of which the location or severity has never been identified — is "taking longer than we thought" to heal, Brohm said. Hermanns, who has an unspecified knee injury, could be out "quite a while." • Tario Fuller was in uniform and traveled with the team to Rutgers but didn't play. Brohm thinks Fuller, a running back, could play Saturday. It'll be interesting to see how he'd factor into the running back rotation, considering Purdue's top three backs
South Carolina is heading to Athens in two weeks for a big-time time slot for the SEC. The Gamecocks Nov. 4 game will kick off between the hedges at 3:30 p.m. on CBS, the conference announced Monday. SEC games on CBS are usually reserved for the best match ups of the week. It's the first game on CBS since Nov. 12 against Florida last year and the first mid-afternoon kickoff on the network since 2014 against Georgia. That game was delayed, though, because of rain. The Gamecocks are 5-5 in the last 10 games against Georgia, and 2-3 in that span at Sanford Stadium with the last win coming in 2011. The last trip to Athens was a 52-20 loss. Georgia (7-0, 4-0 SEC) are coming off a bye week after throttling
Class of 2018 three-star tight end TJ Ivy is a Hoosier. The 6-foot-5, 217-pound Chicago (Ill.) Marist verbally committed to IU on Monday, becoming the 19th member of its 2018 recruiting class. "The past week has caused me to reassess which university I plan to attend to further my education and continue my football career," Ivy said in a statement posted on Twitter. "I've learned a lot about my character and the values that are truly important to me. I've spent many hours these past few days weighing my options and have come to a decision a bout my future. With the blessing of my family, coaches, and close friends, I have decided to commit to Indiana University! Go Hoosiers!" Ivy gave his verbal
Isaac Taylor-Stuart has two SEC visits planned but if you’ve been following his recruitment closely, the schools could be a little surprising. “Texas A&M and Alabama are guaranteed,” Taylor-Stuart said. “Everybody else, I'm still deciding.” Earlier this season, the five-star cornerback from San Diego Helix said he was absolutely planning to visit LSU during his senior campaign and he talked highly of the coaching staff and the defensive back history at the school. LSU could very well get a trip in the coming months but Taylor-Stuart seems more focused on those two other SEC schools at this point. The Aggies especially moved up Taylor-Stuart’s after he spent some time at summer events with Texas
