  • Should Penn State ban itself from bowl?

    Don't need distraction Chris Dufresne Los Angeles Times Yes, although it's a different case from Miami, which did the necessary thing in taking itself out of bowl consideration as part of a damage-control strategy. Current Miami players were involved...

  • Where will Meyer end up next year?
