Scoop: Running back Le’Veon Bell will skip his senior season at Michigan State to enter the 2013 NFL Draft.

Significance: Bell was the heart and soul of the Spartan offense in 2012, rushing for 1,793 yards and scoring 12 touchdowns. 

Story: Le’Veon Bell dealt some bad news to Michigan State football fans today. The junior running back told head coach Mark Dantonio that he will forgo his senior season to declare for the NFL Draft in April, according to mlive.com. According to Bell’s mentor Donis Toler, Dantonio was “taken aback a little bit” by the decision. Toler added, “He thought he had a good chance of Le’Veon coming back.” Bell is rated as the No. 2 running back in the draft by ESPN’s Scouts Inc.

Here are some of Le’Veon’s highlights:

Score: Syracuse 38, West Virginia 14

Star(s): Syracuse: Prince-Tyson Gulley (RB): 26 Car, 215 Yds, 3 Tot TD. Jerome Smith (RB): 29 Car, 158 Yds.

Story: The Orange ran all over the Mountaineers this afternoon, piling up 376 yards on the ground at a snowy Yankee Stadium, to win their second New Era Pinstripe Bowl in three years. The weather wasn’t great for passing in the final collegiate game for senior quarterbacks Geno Smith and Ryan Nassib, but both would finish off their careers with two touchdown performances. Prince-Tyson Gulley was the difference in this one. His 67 yard touchdown run in the third quarter broke the game open. Gulley finished with a game high 215 rushing yards and three touchdowns.

The post Update: Myck Kabongo Suspension Reduced appeared first on The Spun.

The NCAA has reduced its initial year-long suspension of Myck Kabongo for accepting impermissible benefits and giving misleading information to investigators. Kabongo will now have to sit out a total of 23 games and repay $475 to a charity of his choice. The 23-game suspension includes the 11 games that Kabongo has already sat out this season. The Longhorns’ guard will be eligible to return to the court when Texas plays Iowa State on February 13th. Stay tuned.

The post Texas Guard Myck Kabongo Suspended For Season appeared first on The Spun.

]]>
Scoop: The NCAA will suspend sophomore guard Myck Kabongo for the rest of the 2012-13 season, according to Yahoo Sports.

Significance: Kabongo, a 2011 McDonald’s All American, will serve a season-long ban that is similar to what Dez Bryant received at Oklahoma State in 2009.

Story: The Longhorns got some bad news after their upset victory over No. 23 North Carolina last night. The team learned it will have to play without its most talented player, Myck Kabongo, for the rest of season. According to sources close to the program, Kobongo provided inaccurate information when he was interviewed by NCAA investigators about receiving impermissible benefits from NBA agent Rich Paul. 

It doesn’t look like Jay Bilas agrees with the NCAA’s decision.
