Freeze's fall at Ole Miss partially traced to Nutt's suit

The man who Hugh Freeze replaced as Mississippi's football coach was at least partially responsible for Freeze's stunning downfall Thursday night. It was a recently filed civil lawsuit from Houston Nutt — who coached Ole Miss from 2008 to '11 — against the university that unearthed the phone records that eventually revealed Freeze's school-issued cellphone had dialed an escort service on at least one occasion in 2016. Freeze resigned on Thursday after university officials found that the coach engaged in a "pattern of personal misconduct" that was unacceptable. The 47-year-old — who was making more than $5 million per year — will receive no buyout, according to Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork.

Baylor DB Travon Blanchard arrested on family violence charges

As Matt Rhule was winning Big 12 media days on Tuesday, one of his players was generating an all-too-familiar headline. Bears defensive back Travon Blanchard was arrested Tuesday night on family violence charges. He was released later Tuesday night on $6,000 bond. Blanchard was arrested in Waco, but the warrant for his arrest originated out of Fort Bend County, near Houston. Blanchard’s attorney Michelle Tuegel made a statement late Tuesday evening, saying, “we look forward to representing Travon and bringing out the truth in court.” Blanchard was suspended from the program before Tuesday’s arrest, and Rhule said Tuesday (before news of the arrest broke) that his status remain unchanged. “Travon

Ed Orgeron deserves patience while rebuilding LSU's football program

  LSU Tigers 's floor is nowhere as close to as low as it was during the Curley Hallman and Gerry DiNardo years, but the rebuilding effort for first-year full-time coach Ed Orgeron will still be a challenging. Consider LSU a "fixer-upper," comparable to the challenges that Chip and Joanna Gaines take on seemingly every night on HGTV. The bones are good, but cosmetically, there are some issues. The offense should be in good hands with first-year coordinator Matt Canada, who will bring a more dynamic approach to a unit that became stale under former coach Les Miles and coordinator Cam Cameron. "We are very excited to have Matt Canada as an offensive coordinator," Orgeron said at SEC Media Days.
