Mizzou cracks down after audit

The Missouri athletics department is tightening employee use of school-issued credit cards after an audit found a series of improper purchases, including bills for more than $7,600 from a Las Vegas strip club.

Homecoming video from 1966

This video is from the Bryant Museum, and it’s worth watching. It was shot Nov. 12, 1966, when Alabama beat South Carolina 24-0 to improve to 8-0. You’ll see a good bit of Bear Bryant … before he wore a houndstooth hat.

Wake may get top WR back for Thurs. game vs. Clemson

Expected to miss at least a month if not longer due to injury, Michael Campanaro could be back on the field in time for Wake Forest’s next game. Maybe.

Two Georgia players angry over teammate's rant

There's some bad blood on Georgia's defense -- and not just because the 12th-ranked Bulldogs have been a disappointment on that side of the line.

RB sentenced in drunken-driving case

Michigan running back Fitzgerald Toussaint has been ordered to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, pay fines and undergo random drug and alcohol tests.

Quotable:

Following Saturday’s 17-13 loss to Vanderbilt, which dropped Auburn to 0-5 in the SEC for the first time since 1980 and to 1-6 overall for the first time since 1952, Chizik said he takes accountability for the team’s poor performances and repeated mistakes. The embattled fourth-year coach said he still enjoys his job and remains steadfast in trying to lead the program forward.

“I’m the leader of the program. I’m the leader of Auburn football. That’s my job,” said Chizik, who is 31-16 at Auburn and 36-35 as a head coach. “My job’s not easy sometimes ... but I love my job and I love being a part of Auburn. And it’s all my responsibility. Have there been difficult times? Of course there have. Have there been some great times? Absolutely, too.

“We don’t look at the past and the woe is me. You’ve got to take it one day at a time, and you’ve got to keep moving forward.”
