Sun Belt Conference says it wants Arkansas gun law changed (Yahoo Sports)

The Sun Belt Conference said Thursday it wants college sporting events exempted from a new Arkansas law expanding where concealed handguns are allowed, the second conference to call for changes to the gun rights measure. Sun Belt Commissioner Karl Benson said that he supports a proposal pending before the House to exempt the events from the gun law that Gov. Asa Hutchinson signed last week. The new law allows people with concealed handgun licenses to carry on college campuses, in government buildings and some bars if they undergo up to eight hours of active-shooter training.

North Carolina hopes ‘bathroom bill’ deal saves NCAA events (Yahoo Sports)

For years, March brought the NCAA Tournament to basketball-crazed North Carolina like a fixture of spring. And South Carolina watched from afar, left out due to state-level politics that drew the ire of the NCAA.

Basketball-mad North Carolina is hoping that its move to roll back its ”bathroom bill” will help it avoid another costly hit as the NCAA selects four years of championship sites for a variety of sports. College athletics’ governing body said that it is deciding this week on locations for tournaments through the spring of 2022 and that it wouldn’t award any to North Carolina if the law known as House Bill 2 was still on the books. On Thursday, amid the mounting pressure, the North Carolina’s Republican-controlled legislature voted to undo HB2 and sent the measure to Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper for his expected signature.

Florida cornerback Jalen ”Teez” Tabor wants NFL coaches, general managers and scouts to forget everything he’s done the last two months. The 40-yard dash, the vertical leap, the broad jump, the shuttle run, the cone drill, the bench press, flush them all. Tabor believes there’s only one way to truly evaluate his talent.

With his program embroiled in a sexual assault investigation, Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio decided more conventional questions about spring practice would have to wait. ”Didn’t want to come up and talk about spring practice or talk about depth charts or those type of things because I thought it was unfair to the investigation as a whole. Allegations of sexual assault have been made against three Michigan State football players.

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said Tuesday that Parris Campbell is distinguishing himself at receiver, and K.J. Hill, Terry McLaurin and Binjimen Victor are right behind him as the Buckeyes try to breathe some life back into their passing game this spring. The four wide receivers, along with Austin Mack and Johnnie Dixon, all saw playing time and showed flashes of talent last year, but none broke out as a top playmaker or reliable deep threat as expected. Meyer needs that to change next season, especially after the departure of the team’s two top receivers, H-back Curtis Samuel and wideout Noah Brown.
