Holloway leaving Gamecocks | WIS News 10
Murphy Holloway wants to leave South Carolina and return to Mississippi.

"I came back because of my daughter and my family situation and I feel like that situation is a lot better than it was, and I want to take the opportunity to go back to Ole Miss," Holloway said.

Kennedy sees revised roster in 6th season | Veazey

Jerrell Powe looks to be the Rebels' best professional prospect, as he and 14 other Ole Missians worked out for scouts representing 24 different pro teams on Tuesday. Powe's pro potential looks good, as he claims he's hearing that he's second round material, but the same can't be readily said for Jeremiah Masoli, who both took snaps and caught passes for the prospects. Sayeth Masoli:

Ralph Nader proposes replacing athletic scholarships with need-based aid | ESPN
Ralph Nader also hates fun. Look, Ralphie, I'm all for being honest about NCAA athletics, which is why I oftentimes refer to NCAA football as "the NFL's minor league," but such honesty doesn't require us to actually implement amateurism into the once-amateur game.

Also, you're old. Stop being old, Ralph.
