Baylor senior cornerback Ryan Reid sometimes texts teammates out of the blue to ask what they're doing. After a fraught offseason when the 23rd-ranked Bears lost their head coach, the outreach is part of an effort to build chemistry - and prevent more missteps off the field. Seth Russell, a senior quarterback who was the top-rated FBS passer before a season-ending neck injury last October, said the Bears are looking forward to talking football and winning games while trying to build a culture of high character.

A federal judge has granted the NCAA's motion to dismiss the governing body from a lawsuit filed by two former North Carolina athletes seeking to hold it at least partly responsible for the school's long-running academic fraud scandal. In a ruling signed Friday, U.S. District Court Judge Loretta C. Biggs stated attorneys for former women's basketball player Rashanda McCants and ex-football player Devon Ramsay hadn't proven that the NCAA had a legal obligation to ensure the soundness of classes offered at UNC under state law. McCants and Ramsay filed their lawsuit in January 2015 months naming the NCAA and UNC as defendants, arguing that neither had done enough to ensure athletes receive a quality education while citing the scandal on the Chapel Hill campus as a result.
