Rules are rules Brian Hamilton Chicago Tribune There are a lot of nonsensical and/or hypocritical NCAA rules, and one certainly can stand on a soapbox and shriek that punishing players for breaking those rules is just as hypocritical and silly. But rules are rules, and private encounters with prostitutes on a yacht are private encounters with prostitutes on a yacht, so something has to give here. If Miami is interested in never vacating the 2011 season, it must sit any player in question until he's cleared.

I stick with my original opinion of the Miami housewives -- if Elsa is in an episode, it's probably a good episode. Marysol's mother Elsa, opens the episode by threatening to hit a drag queen with her pocket book. Leah finally confronts Marysol and surprisingly apologizes to Marysol. But Marysol doesn't accept her apology or the invitation to her gala. Adriana confronts Karent (finally) after complaining about "beating her to the tweet" for the last two episodes. Adriana tells Karent she interrupts, is a copycat and thrives on the spotlight. Alexia, a housewife from last season who chose not to be on the show this season because her son was in a very serious car accident, agrees with Adriana.

Cautious sanctions Dieter Kurtenbach Sun Sentinel It'd be foolhardy to expect the NCAA to let Miami to skate by on time served. But when they come out, I expect the sanctions to be cautious and reeking of deflected insecurities. The NCAA handcuffed itself when President Mark Emmert said Wednesday that minimal evidence was acquired through illegal means. I'm not buying that. Emmert would have tossed out the minimal evidence and sent Miami the notice of allegations if that were the case.

Sunny Odogwu made a big impression on St. Frances' football team during the fall of 2011, but it was his first year of organized football and the Nigeria native needed a little more time to develop his skills before heading into a top-notch college program. After graduating from St. Frances, Odogwu spent last fall at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va., honing his skills and drawing more and more attention from college coaches. At 6 feet 9, 315 pounds, the offensive tackle had more than 30 offers.

With the 198th pick in the 2012 NFL draft (sixth round), the Ravens drafted speedy Miami wide receiver Tommy Streeter. The Ravens have said they hoped to add a wide receiver during the draft, and Streeter is a tall vertical target that, in theory, would help them expand their developing downfield passing attack. A hair under 6 feet 5, Streeter has excellent downfield speed for his size. At the scouting combine, he ran the 40-yard dash at 4.40 seconds, which was among the top times among wide receivers.
