Miami is guns up.

Citing massive impropriety by the NCAA and how it handled the investigation of Miami's athletic department, the Hurricanes want the case against them thrown out altogether and formally filed a motion Friday - as did three former assistant coaches - to have the case brought to an end, said a person familiar with the situation.

Collision course - Auburn

Demetruce McNeal always has prided himself on being a physical defender. That won't change. Still, Ellis Johnson believes the rising senior can be more than a simple box safety.

Mississippi State offense tinkers with pro-style look

Bulldogs quarterback Tyler Russell spends roughly half his practice snaps under center, as Dan Mullen tries out new look.

Quotable:

"The guys I played with as a rookie took me under their wing.  How I was taught to play the game was to teach others under you because you need everybody to be good.  That's just part of how it was.  The coaches at Pittsburgh always said when you're done, we'll hire you to coach. My defensive back coach (Ray Horton) became the coordinator at Arizona and he hired me to coach.  That's the way I was brought up.  We always used to say that you're only as strong as your weakest link.  When the young cats came in, we always want them to know what we knew.  That's the way I am.  I want my guys to share everything to make that next guy better.  It's only going to make the whole team better."
