A watershed moment that may have a significant impact on the tenuous relationship between the billion dollar college sports industry and academics is playing out here in Nashville this morning. The University of North Carolina has finally come before the NCAA Committee on Infractions to address five allegations, including lack of institutional control, which stem from an academic scandal that allegedly spanned nearly two decades in Chapel Hill and involved hundreds of UNC athletes. Head basketball coach Roy Williams will be questioned about his knowledge and possible role in the scandal. The NCAA will also question head football coach Larry Fedora, and women's basketball coach Sylvia Hatchell. The hearing is closed to the public and media and the outcome may not be known for weeks if not months.

UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen spoke publicly for the first time since training camp began, but chose not to discuss his interview published last week by Bleacher Report in which he questioned the relationship between academics and playing college football. Asked if he was surprised by any of the reaction to the interview, Rosen said: “No. I mean, Coach Mora kind of addressed the whole thing, but at this point I'm kind of just talking about camp.”

Dabo Swinney says "there's no question" Kelly Bryant is atop Clemson's depth chart at the moment, and the junior has graded out the best of the Tigers' three QBs in camp. But Swinney adds that he's confident any of them could win games and he'll definitely want to get RSFr Zerrick Cooper and Fr Hunter Johnson reps in September since neither has game experience.

Penn State's Saquon Barkley rushed for nearly 1,500 yards last season and averaged 5.5 yards per carry. He can run over you, run by you and also has a pretty mean stiff arm.
