Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez said it's time to abolish the so-called 20-hour rule designed to limit how much time students spend on athletics instead of academics per week. Let's not make ridiculous rules that you can't follow.'' Alvarez will get no argument from Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany, who called the rule a ''misnomer'' based on the amount of time athletes devote to their sport and said it needs a new label. ''The most important thing is there be a discussion about how prepared the student is, how the school accommodates preparedness and how it all works,'' Delany said.

Rolle defends Winston, says Bowden wrong to criticize QB (Yahoo Sports)

Former Florida State star Myron Rolle says Bobby Bowden was wrong to say Seminoles supporters believe Jameis Winston was an embarrassment to the school. Rolle won a Rhodes Scholarship while playing for Bowden at Florida State and has known Winston since the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback was in high school. The 85-year-old Bowden said last week during an interview on ''The Paul Finebaum Show'' that he thought it is ''consensus among Florida State fans and boosters that (Winston) was an embarrassment in a lot of ways to the university.'' Rolle said Tuesday he doubts his former coach meant any harm, but Bowden was off-base.

Kentucky's men's basketball team was nearly as perfect in the classroom in 2013-14 as it was on the basketball court last season. On Wednesday, the school often criticized for embracing one-and-done players was singled out by the NCAA for public recognition after finishing among the top 10 percent of men's basketball teams academically. The Wildcats and Duke, which won its fifth national championship in April, both made the list.
