No more deception Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune Absolutely. Especially after USC's Lane Kiffin made a fool of himself last week by suspending a beat writer for (correctly) reporting that a Trojans kicker had undergone surgery. Kiffin ignored his own policy, which was to punish media members who report an injury while observing practice. Surgeries don't take place during practice, so Kiffin apologized. Now he needs to apologize for having his team unprepared to play Stanford.

The Baltimore Sun will follow Franklin's Steven Smothers, Gilman's Ellison Jordan and McDonogh's Eric Burrell on the recruiting trail as they try to decide over the next year which college will be the best fit. This is part one in an occasional series. Steven Smothers' cell phone started dancing just a few seconds past midnight on Sept. 1. The Franklin junior had switched his phone to vibrate, but he didn't ignore it, knowing college football coaches could begin contacting Class of 2016 prospects via text message, email and social media immediately after midnight.

USC's Lee amazing Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune My Heisman choice will remain a secret until Saturday's announcement. So removing the four players (Collin Klein, Jordan Lynch, Johnny Manziel and Manti Te'o) that made up my ballot I'm left with two defensive studs and a game-breaker at USC. The game-breaker is Marqise Lee, a sophomore stud at USC. He's so good, his five-catch, 75-yard effort against Notre Dame qualified as his second-worst performance of the season.

Morgan State (3-7, 2-5 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) vs. Hampton (2-7, 2-5 MEAC) When: Saturday, 1 p.m. Site: Hughes Stadium Radio: 88.9 FM Series: Morgan State leads, 36-23-2 What's at stake: In the final game of the season, Morgan State just wants a win.

Michigan might hold up Chris Dufresne Los Angeles Times This may sound strange, given that it struggled at home with an FCS opponent, but the biggest surprise has to be Michigan. Almost everyone was predicting disaster for Rich Rodriguez in his third year, given the offseason problems and the fact his team lost seven of its last eight last year. Consider this: Central Michigan received points in the preseason coaches poll but not Michigan. So the fact the Wolverines are 22nd in this week's coaches poll has to be acknowledged.

There's a large contingent of grown men (and women) who pay to use a message board so that they can hang on every word a 17-year-old kid utters. Out of context, this seems very strange. In context, really, it's not much better. What I'm talking about is college football fans and the obsession with recruiting in the modern world, especially with the development of the internet over the past two decades. These fans look at tweets, pictures and stories, trying to gather any inkling of knowledge that will tip a recruit's cap as to where they'll be playing college ball.

Penn State was picky in choosing game film to study Indiana. The Hoosier horror flick that was the 83-20 defeat last week to Wisconsin was tossed aside to focus on what Indiana did right its two previous games, losses to Iowa and Northwestern by a combined eight points. That's the team coach Joe Paterno thinks the Nittany Lions (6-4, 3-3 Big Ten) will face when the schools meet Saturday at FedEx Field in Landover, Md. "I watched it when it was … Wisconsin was ahead 30, 40 points and then I didn't waste time looking at it," Paterno said.

Marquese Meadow, an 18-year-old freshman at Morgan State University and defensive lineman on the Bears football team, died early Sunday morning at Johns Hopkins Hospital two weeks after becoming disoriented at practice, school officials said. Meadow, a Washington native, was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital, and then to Hopkins, following practice on Aug. 10, according to Clinton Coleman, director of public relations and communications at Morgan. Coleman said Meadow was hospitalized since then, and was showing signs of improvement before his condition began to deteriorate Saturday.

Neither Claire Ford of Notre Dame Prep nor Matt Stambaugh of Eastern Tech sought the spotlight in their high school sports careers. On Monday night, however, both seniors found themselves literally bathed in it at the 74th Annual McCormick Unsung Heroes Awards in Hunt Valley. Ford, who switched from shooting guard to point guard her senior year of basketball, and Stambaugh, who excelled as a guard in football despite his 5-foot-9, 165-pound frame, each were named winners of the event's crowning prize, the Charles Perry McCormick Scholarship, worth $36,000 over four years.

Et cetera Missed deadlines slow progress on a new stadium for D.C. United Five months after Washington Mayor Vincent C. Gray announced a plan to build a new soccer stadium, the administration has missed a series of self-imposed deadlines, including a promise to deliver a land deal for the D.C. Council to vote on this year. City Administrator Allen Y. Lew , a top aide to Gray, said he was pressing to complete a land swap before Christmas with developers, utilities and business owners to obtain the land for the proposed 20,000-seat stadium and adjacent bars and restaurants on Buzzard Point.
