OSU QB Braxton Miller Injures Shoulder in Practice [UPDATE: Out For The Season]

Hold your breathe Buckeye Nation.

Ohio State QB Braxton Miller has re-injured the shoulder he had surgery on in February, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

The Heisman favorite’s status is now up in the air after reportedly suffering a shoulder injury in practice on Monday. The paper described playing status for the 2014 is “in jeopardy.”

According to Eleven Warriors, Miller’s shoulder was placed in a sling.  The Buckeye’s national title hopes now ride on redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, a former four-star recruit.

Any extended absence from Miller would be devastating news for Ohio State. The Buckeyes enter the season ranked No. 5 overall in the AP Poll.

However, there is some hope for Ohio State as their 2014 schedule is one of the softest in recent years . They play one team ranked in the initial Top 25. Their two toughest games, at Michigan State and at home against Michigan, are in November.

Wolverine fans will sleep with a joyful grin tonight….

[UPDATE: Braxton Miller has been rules out for the season, per ESPN, after re-injuring the shoulder he hurt last season. While this is an undoubted blow, it is by no means a death sentence. Ohio State can still win the B1G and do so in a fashion that earns them a playoff place.]

Notre Dame: Four Football Players Dismissed For Academic Fraud

Four Notre Dame football players have been dismissed according to Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman, following a school investigation into academic fraud among both athletes and other students. Yahoo Sports‘ Pat Forde reported the players under investigation were WR DaVaris Daniels, CB KeiVarae Russell, DE Ishaq Williams and LB Kendall Moore. The first three were projected 2014 starters.

Notre Dame released a statement:

“Integrity is at the heart of our mission and academic misconduct will not be tolerated at Notre Dame,” said Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., the University’s president. “If the suspected improprieties are proven, we will use the experience to reinforce among our students the importance of honesty in all that they do. We are also examining ways of better conveying to students that they can avail themselves of legitimate academic assistance without resorting to cheating.”

Evidence that students had submitted papers and homework that had been written for them by others was initially detected at the end of the summer session, and referred to the compliance office in athletics on July 29. The Office of General Counsel initiated an immediate investigation.

“The University is committed to thorough resolution of this matter, consistent with its commitment to academic integrity and adherence to NCAA rules,” Father Jenkins said.

This is not a good look for a school at any time. Especially not when Notre Dame is welcoming back starting QB Everett Golson for a similar academic malfeasance after a year’s absence. It’s not apparent whether the four players will be offered the same opportunity to sit out a year and return.

Per Yahoo Sports, the violations could result in retroactive ineligibility and force Notre Dame to vacate wins.

Edward Sarafin: Arizona State Offensive Lineman Announces He’s Gay

Edward Sarafin, a back-up offensive lineman for Arizona State, has announced he’s gay in an interview with Compete. He told his teammates last Spring. “It was really personal to me, and it benefitted my peace of mind greatly,” Serafin said. He plans to earn his master’s degree and become a neurologist.

A fifth-year senior, Sarafin has spent most of his career at Arizona State working on the scout team. He is yet to enter a game as an offensive lineman, largely providing depth at the center position and working occasionally on special teams. Listed at 6’6″ and 320 pounds, he is one of the most physically imposing offensive linemen in the Pac-12.

As CFT posits, the time will come sooner than later that the sexual preferences of professional and amateur athletes will cease to be news.

Michigan WR Csont’e York Punched Man Outside Bar, Broke Jaw in Three Places [Video]

Csont'e York, Michigan WR, punching a guy outside a bar

Michigan wideout Csont’e York was suspended indefinitely for “failing to meet team standards.” Well, he sure is living up to that suspension.  Ann Arbor Police released video of the sophomore sucker punching a man outside the bar Scorekeeper’s on July 18. The victim suffered a broken jaw.

Explanations in the police report conflict. One suggests there was “an argument about hockey and football.” York told police the man “walked up on” teammate Da’Mario Jones.

York faces charges of “aggravated assault” and two counts of assault and battery. He appeared in one game last season.

Missouri Tigers Offensive Lineman Takes Snap to the Nuts [Video]

Coming off one of the best seasons in school history, the Missouri Tigers are out to prove it was no fluke. However, it seems they might need a little more practice.

Evan Boehm suffered the unfortunate fate of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The Missouri offensive lineman received a snap from Brad McNulty and caught it right in the nuts.

To add much insult to injury the traumatic video was recorded by Evan’s brother Tyler, who then uploaded the painful moment to the internet for all to view.
