College football is idiot-proof and will thrive despite having to pay players | Commentary

Will you please halt all of the hand-wringing and teeth-gnashing? Cease and desist with all of the castigation and consternation. And, for the sake of the late and great Beano Cook, stop with these ridiculous doomsday scenarios that college football is circling the drain now that the NCAA and the power conferences have agreed to allow schools to directly pay players for the first time in the 155-year history of the sport. Believe me, college football will not only continue to survive, it will thrive just as it always has for one very simple reason: It’s idiot-proof. Completely and totally idiot-proof. The...

Hurricanes suffer blowout loss to No. 8 Duke, further damaging their postseason hopes

CORAL GABLES — The Hurricanes entered Wednesday night’s showdown with Duke shorthanded, missing two starters for their matchup with the nation’s No. 8 team. But there was no upset in store for Miami (15-12, 6-10 ACC), which was outgunned for the entirety of the game and fell 84-55 at the Watsco Center in Coral Gables. The defeat was the Hurricanes’ fifth straight loss, marking their first five-game losing streak since 2021. “It seems like we’re climbing a mountain uphill and keep slipping back,” Miami coach Jim Larrañaga said. “We ran into a very good team tonight. Every mistake we made, we...

College ADs cower in the presence of coaching super-agent Jimmy Sexton | Commentary

Who do you think is the most powerful person in college football? SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey? Big Ten Commissioner Tony Petitti? NCAA President Charlie Baker? College Football Playoff Executive Director Bill Hancock? Influential ESPN commentator Paul Finebaum? Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong and wrong. You’re not even close. It’s college football coaching super-agent Jimmy Sexton, the man who has literally and legally convinced college athletic directors to sign away mega-millions, if not billions of dollars, in one-sided coaching contracts to his grateful clients over the years. Sports agent Jimmy...

If FSU and other college stars are getting paid, then they should play in bowl games | Commentary

With apologies to the the legendary Simon & Garfunkel and their iconic song Mrs. Robinson: “Where have you gone, Charlie Wysocki? A college football nation turns its lonely eyes to you — woo, woo, woo.” As I sat in the press box for the Cheez-It Citrus Bowl matchup Monday between Iowa and Tennessee, I thought back to the first bowl game I ever attended in this same stadium more than four decades ago. I was a wide-eyed teenager as I excitedly watched the Charley Pell-coached Florida Gators play the Jerry Claiborne-coached Maryland Terrapins in the 1980 Tangerine Bowl. I don’t remember a whole...
