Penn State AD: Opposing programs lying to recruits (Yahoo Sports)

FILE - In this May 15, 2014 file photo, a logo is lifted by crane to the back of a scoreboard at Penn State's Beaver Stadium in State College, Pa. Judge Gary Glazer is expected to release records Tuesday, July 12, 2016, that also may contain details about claims Penn State assistant coaches saw

Penn State athletic director Sandy Barbour said opposing programs are lying to recruits by telling them the Nittany Lions could be put on probation by the NCAA in the wake of recent allegations in the Jerry Sandusky scandal. ''It's not factual,'' she said Tuesday at Big Ten Media Days. Penn State is free of sanctions and back to the full 85 scholarships, but it can't escape a shadow cast by one of the biggest scandals to hit a college program.

Arkansas using overseas trip to help mesh overhauled roster (Yahoo Sports)

FILE - In this March 20, 2015 file photo, Arkansas head coach Mike Anderson gestures during a news conference at the NCAA college basketball tournament in Jacksonville, Fla. Anderson believes missing the NCAA Tournament last season was an abberation, not a trend. The Razorbacks, loaded with an influx of junior-college talent, will have an early chance to prove their coach correct on a preseason tour of Spain next month. (AP Photo/Chris O'Meara, File)

Rather, the Razorbacks coach is simply treating the disappointing 16-16 record as a singular setback in what's been an otherwise growth-filled first five seasons following his return to the school where he was an assistant for 17 years. Anderson will have his first opportunity to see if last season's struggles were an aberration or a sign of things to come when the new-look Razorbacks travel to Spain next week for a four-game exhibition schedule against European competition. It's a welcome trip for Anderson, who is eager to put last season's up-and-down results behind him, and for Arkansas, which has added an influx of junior-college talent in search of returning to its NCAA Tournament level of two seasons ago.
