HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Penn State said Monday it is paying $59.7 million to 26 young men over claims of child sexual abuse at the hands of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, a man once revered as a university icon who is now serving what is effectively a life prison sentence. Nearly two years after the retired coach was first charged with child molestation, the school said 23 deals were fully signed and three were agreements in principle. It did not disclose the names of the recipients. The school faces six other claims, and the university says it believes some of those do not have merit while others may produce settlements. University president Rodney Erickson issued a statement ... Read More »

Heisman Watch Week 9: Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel under the radar?

The rushing stats have dipped, but Johnny Manziel is besting his 2012 season in many ways. (Cal Sport Media via AP) Has the country completely forgotten about Johnny Manziel? While Oregon’s Marcus Mariota and Florida State’s Jameis Winston dominate most of the Heisman Trophy conversation, last year’s winner is seemingly flying under the radar in College Station. Yet Manziel’s performance against Vanderbilt on Saturday further proved that the polarizing player isn’t out of the Heisman hunt just yet. As always, Manziel faces a couple of challenges in his path to the trophy. First, only one player (Ohio State running back Archie Griffin from 1974-75) has ever taken home the trophy twice; that notion alone will play into minds of voters, ... Read More »

College Football Overtime: Which team can finish the year unbeaten?

Every year around this time, fans start freaking out over the possibility of an undefeated power-conference team being excluded from the BCS championship game. Every year except one (2004), late-season upsets have eventually rendered that worrying moot. This season, however, feel free to commence the freak-out. The calendar will turn to November this week with six power-conference teams — Alabama (8-0), Oregon (8-0), Florida State (7-0), Ohio State (8-0), Baylor (7-0) and Miami (7-0) — still unbeaten. If that number seems like a lot, that’s because it is.
