The NCAA is conducting an investigation into a "potential recruiting irregularity" involving the Mississippi State University football program. Sources close to the situation have confirmed to The Dispatch MSU Sports Blog the investigation, at least in part, involves an automobile purchased for MSU freshman defensive back Will Redmond. The Ford Mustang was purchased before Redmond signed with MSU this February from a used car dealership in his hometown of Memphis, Tenn.

Columbus Dispatch | Sources: NCAA investigation of Mississippi State football involves car for Will Redmond Again, you play by the rules for Cam Newton, but go all in for Will Redmond? You knew something sinister was afoot when the young assistant coach resigned for "personal reasons" ten days before the season opener. Undoubtedly, MSU will claim this is an isolated assistant gone rogue and that in response the school took the appropriate actions in a timely fashion. That defense worked well enough for LSU a year ago with D.J. McCarthy.

Two-time University of Alabama graduate Guy Bailey has been named the next president of his alma mater. Bailey, who has been the president of Texas Tech University since 2008, was interviewed this morning by the UA system's board of trustees, which voted immediately after the meeting to hire him. Bailey was the top candidate for the position and the only one brought in to interview. The Montgomery native attended the Capstone from 1968 to 1974, earning bachelor's and master's degrees in English. He also received a doctorate in English linguistics from Tennessee.

Tuscaloosa News: Guy Bailey Named President of The University of Alabama Interesting, hope this portends good things for the athletics department, though his ties to the Mike Leach fiasco at Texas Tech will cause some concerns.

"After giving it more thought and talking it over with Joe yesterday, I am uncomfortable with what we agreed were the next steps. I am having trouble with going to everyone but the person involved. I would be more comfortable meeting with the person and tell them about the information we received and tell them we are aware of the first situation," Curley's email said, according to CNN.

Twitter: Cecil Hurt Kudos to softball and all, but baseball keeps seeing how far this cellar descends. At this point we ought to hire a modern day Walter Matthau as manager and have him drive around in an old yellow convertible while chugging cheap canned beer. If you're going to be this bad you ought to at least be mildly entertaining.

Three Arkansas football players have been arrested for residential burglary this afternoon, according to the Washington County Detention Center website. Wide receivers Marquel Wade and Maudrecus Humphrey and tight end Andrew Peterson have been booked into the Washington County Detention Center after being arrested by the University of Arkansas Police Department. All three players have been charged with residential burglary.

As many will note, Maudrecus Humphrey, who has been charged with nine counts of burglary (which is a class-B felony in the Arkansas penal law), is the son of former Alabama standout Bobby Humphrey. He is also the brother of Marlon Humphrey, a 2014 prospect out of Hoover who figures to be heavily recruited and who many believe will ultimately end up in Tuscaloosa just like his father.
