NCAA football news: Oklahoma State steals the headlines

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

The focus of the college football world turned to Oklahoma State on Tuesday when Sports Illustrated began releasing their big exposé on the program.

We've rounded up all the news college football fans may have missed on Tuesday. One story is a bit bigger than the others.

Oklahoma State

Sports Illustrated has a big five-part report coming out on the OSU program this week. The first part dropped on Tuesday and it details how a bunch of players got paid in ways outside of NCAA rules. Read everything about that story as it develops in our story stream, but here are the major responses yesterday:


Marqise Lee said that Trojans would hold a players only meeting after their loss to Washington State last weekend, but head coach Lane Kiffin said on Tuesday that meeting never happened. Except it did, and Lee publicly contradicted his coach when asked about it. Even the ground on which we walk knows Kiffin is toast.

Ohio State

Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer spoke on the Big Ten coaches conference call on Tuesday, and said that he's "fairly optimistic" Braxton Miller will be ready to play. Miller suffered a knee injury against San Diego State last weekend, but it would seem that his knee isn't in too bad of shape. Kenny Guiton played well in relief, but Ohio State needs Miller healthy if they want to make a national title run.


Bulldogs wideout Malcolm Mitchell had surgery to repair his torn ACL on Tuesday and should be ready to return for the start of the 2014 season. Mitchell got hurt in Georgia's season opening loss to Clemson and should apply for a medical redshirt, which would give him two years of remaining eligibility.


The Gophers also lost a starter to a torn ACL, losing cornerback Briean Bodd-Calhoun for the season after he got hurt against New Mexico State on Saturday. Like Mitchell, Boddy-Calhoun will have a strong case for a medical redshirt since the injury happened so early in the season.


Special teams and safeties coach Chris Demarest will be suspended for the Nevada game for "inappropriate sideline conduct" during the Warriors' loss to Oregon State over the weekend. It's not clear exactly what Demarest did, but the rule governs "obscene gestures and language toward other people." Football coaches are usually apt cussers, so Demarest must have really turned the air blue if he was suspended for it.
