Kevin Sherrington: With Texas, Oklahoma coming, SEC scheduling decision should focus on protecting rivalries
DALLAS — The Southeastern Conference’s allegedly temporary resolution this week of what Kirby Smart called “the most overrated conversation there ever was” might lend credence to the Georgia coach’s assertion at that. The SEC will stick to eight conference football games and a November puff pastry after all. And if you don’t like it, Georgia or Alabama will meet you in a stadium in January. ...

SEC axing divisions, sticking with 8-game conference slate for 2024
NCAA rules state schools cannot recruit athletes who are currently on another team's roster. But with college football players freer to transfer than ever before — and name, image and likeness compensation opportunities being dangled — coaches are frustrated the recruiting starts even before the name pops up in the portal.

Zach Edey withdraws from NBA draft, returns to Purdue
Illinois will have two stars back in Coleman Hawkins and Terrence Shannon Jr.
They were No. 8 seeds. They barely got into the playoffs after up-and-down regular seasons. They had to face the No. 1 overall seeds in Round 1 of the postseason. They had to win Game 7s in Boston just to keep their seasons alive. They are Eastern Conference champions. They are four wins from a championship. This is the story of the Miami Heat and Florida Panthers. And it could have an ending like none other.
Wednesday marked the deadline for players who were early entrants to the NBA draft to withdraw and return to college basketball. The list of returnees includes Purdue's 7-foot-4 center Zach Edey after being named Associated Press national player of the year. There's also national champion Connecticut getting back guard Tristen Newton. But Kentucky big man Oscar Tshiebwe is staying in the draft as a former AP national player of the year. UCLA returned Pac-12 freshman of the year Adem Bona. Michigan State retained guards Jaden Akins and A.J. Hoggard. Other returnees included Tennessee's Josiah-Jordan James and Illinois' Terrence Shannon Jr.

The righty throws 100 miles per hour, leads the nation with 167 strikeouts and was named SEC pitcher of the year.
Adem Bona, the Pac-12 Conference's freshman of the year, is withdrawing his name from the NBA draft and will return to UCLA for his sophomore season.
