Football and basketball players unite in the arrest log at Missouri. …

From Saturday Down South, a spring football look at the Georgia Bulldogs. …

From Fayetteville, quarterback will be the most discussed position during Arkansas’ spring drills, and there’s plenty of competition for returning starter Brandon Allen. …

    The Mizzu players arrests is another example of the “me” problem that is so prevalent in sports right now. Making themselves more important than the team. It’s a selfish attitude that goes against the TEAM concept. A player knows this and still takes the chance. Missed practices, missed games lead to missed opportunities for the team. It’s shameful.

      it is an attitude that isn’t just prevalent in sports, it is prevalent throughout society as evidenced by internet trolls like you.

        Internet troll? As usual, when you don’t have a legitimate argument, you resort to name calling…this is a sign of weakness or forfeiture. I will accept your concession.

    Just the right person to replace Marshall Henderson! I’m X-cited about
    this upcoming season.

    guard J.T. Escobar was named first team 2014 Parade
    All-American last Friday. Escobar averaged 29.6 points per game
    in high school this season, connecting on 44 percent of his 3-point tries and 92
    percent of his free throws.
