Statement from Rich Rodriguez's attorney to ESPN in response to the lawsuit filed against him by his former agency alleging breach of contract: "Coach Rodriguez had an 'at-will' agency relationship with CAA that began in 2011. He paid CAA fees in excess of $280,000 through 2015, when he terminated the relationship. Rodriguez never entered in to a written contract with CAA, nor did he ever verbally agree to pay fees for any period after 2015." Rodriguez will fight this lawsuit "vigorously," his attorney said.

Miami coach Mark Richt was clearly unhappy with practice Friday, telling local reporters, "Everybody around here has to do their job, and right now, it's not happening. And I'm part of it. I'm leading it. It's on me. But I promise you, it's going to be on everybody else that needs to do what they're supposed to do." Asked whether struggles were common in fall camp, Richt said, "There's always days when I want to rip somebody, but today I'm ripping everybody, starting with me."

North Carolina has opted not to issue a statement following two days in front of the NCAA Committee on Infractions. So after about 15 hours worth of discussions, both sides left Nashville with no comment. Next step is a decision from the committee about possible sanctions.

Day 2 in Nashville for North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams who arrived ten minutes early to prepare for what may be another marathon day of questions from NCAA investigators. UNC is facing five allegations related to an academic scandal that spanned nearly two decades in Chapel Hill. Williams led the Tar Heels to two championships during that period (2005 and 2009). The NCAA Committee on Infractions will eventually rule on whether athletes on those and other UNC teams maintained eligibility in large part because of bogus classes offered by the African Studies department.

USC OLB Porter Gustin seems destined for a breakthrough season. He's been an important contributor the past two seasons, but if developed into an all-conference or all-American caliber player it would be a surprise. Here's Clay Helton on what Gustin is like away from the field.

UNC men's basketball coach Roy Williams spent nearly ten hours inside a heavily secured conference room bordered by ropes and shuttered by shades, as the NCAA questioned Williams and other UNC officials about their knowledge or involvement in an academic scandal that spanned nearly two decades in Chapel Hill. The NCAA has slapped UNC with five allegations, most notably a lack of institutional control and with providing athletes with impermissible benefits. Williams, accompanied by his attorney Jim Cooney, was joined by Carolina women's basketball coach Sylvia Hatchell, current football coach Larry Fedora, Chancellor Carol Folt, athletic director Bubba Cunningham and Deborah Crowder, a retired administrator in the African Studies department who played a central role in creating a bogus curriculum that the NCAA says disproportionately benefited UNC athletes more than it did the rest of the student body. None of the coaches has yet been accused of wrongdoing and the school has adamantly denied violating any NCAA bylaws. The hearings are scheduled to continue Thursday morning and Williams is expected to face another day of questions. The NCAA's ruling may be weeks if not months away.
