Banners return to Miami advocating Butch Davis, not Mario Cristobal

The banners are back at Miami, and they might be running off candidates before they even arrive. If it was thought removing Al Golden as Miami’s coach would end the planes hauling banners with unsolicited coaching counsel, it was wrong. Two banners returned to Sun Life Stadium before Miami’s game against Georgia Tech on Saturday. (ESPN.com)

Virginia Tech’s Dadi Nicolas gives ref Ron Cherry the business (video)

I think it’s safe to say that Virginia Tech defensive end Dadi Nicolas was unhappy with referee Ron Cherry’s call Saturday during the Hokies’ game against North Carolina. (Washington Post)

As final NASCAR Cup race approaches, Jeff Gordon looks back

After Jeff Gordon’s final Sprint Cup Series race Sunday, more than 100 of his family members and friends will gather at a party in downtown Miami to share the end of a landmark day — and career — with Gordon. Now, they may have something else to celebrate: a fifth championship. (USA Today)

Christian decommitted from Rutgers on Nov. 4. (Zag's Blog)

Kansas suspends Brannen Greene six games

While Kansas freshman forward Cheick Diallo will get to make the trip west for the Maui Jim Maui Invitational, one of his teammates will not. Friday morning head coach Bill Self announced that junior wing Brannen Greene has been suspended six games for “conduct detrimental to the team.” That rules him out for the Jayhawks’ three games in Maui, beginning with their matchup with hosts Chaminade on Monday.

UCLA tight end Chris Clark, one-time UNC and Michigan commitment, transferring to Pitt, not Syracuse

Being honest, Clark's entire situation does not look good to the unbiased observer. All of the shine of signing a former #1 TE recruit seems to be gone after all that's happened with him committing to UNC, then Michigan, enrolling at UCLA, transferring, parting ways with Cuse after committing, and now committing to Pitt.

The top 10 best entrances in college football

Rasheed Wallace chewing on a straw and 14 other awesome Philadelphia basketball players

‘Sheed, chewing on a plastic straw, rockin’ a Doc throwback, with a GRAPE soda on the steps behind him. The only thing that could make this picture more Philly would be an Ishkabibble’s chicken cheesesteak (salt, pepper, ketchup, fried onions and mayonnaise) in Rasheed’s back pocket. (CSN Philly)

It's not easy being Crean

And now I was sitting in a conference room inside Cook Hall on this sprawling Big Ten campus following a two-hour practice during which Indiana's coach talked about the importance of fighting through screens and rebounding from the guard positions, and he and I were alone. So I decided this was as good a time as any to ask something that's been bouncing around my head for a while. I looked at Tom Crean and started talking. (CBS Sports)

Pure confusion: NCAA, schools, bowls not sure how to deal with 5-7 teams

In most years, the bowl chances for Nebraska (5-6) and Texas (4-6) would appear fairly simple: Both teams need to win out to reach the postseason. However, this year’s bowl situation is anything but simple. With a record 80 FBS teams needed to fill the record 41 bowl games, including the College Football Playoff title game, there is a very real possibility that not enough teams will reach the required six wins to become bowl eligible.

Five-star shooting guard Malik Monk verbally committed to Kentucky on the final day of the initial signing period, a source in Monk's camp told Scout.

Vermont Academy guard Bruce Brown is headed to warmer weather. The 6-foot-4 Brown announced for Miami over Indiana on Wednesday on ESPN.
