Coming up roses, againCollege football is back, and probably for the first time I can remember, the feeling that the return of football brought with it more than anything else was relief.

Andre Nevin on the right, trouble for Da UIn what has the potential to be the most explosive college football scandal since Eric Dickerson was pumping bass out of the speakers of his shiny new gold Trans-Am in the late '70s, a rogue University of Miami booster who doubles as a convicted felon ...
