I want to preface this post by saying that all of my college football (or college basketball) news posts are all using news from the previous week or so. Anyway, let’s get into the news.
Former five-star tight end Arik Gilbert announced he was transferring from LSU earlier this year. Gilbert then committed to Florida, which was a huge win for Dan Mullen and company. But, recently he decommitted from heading to Gainesville. Per his twitter, he will not announcing his choice until he is enrolled on the campus of his choosing.
Kansas has put head football coach Les Miles on administrative leave, sources have confirmed. The decision was made after Miles’ conduct at LSU in 2013 was made public. Kansas Athletic Director Jeff Long said this regarding the situation: “Even though the allegations against him occurred at LSU, we take these matters very seriously at KU,” “Now that we have access to this information, we will take the coming days to fully review the material and to see if any additional information is available. I do not want to speculate on a timeline for our review because it is imperative we do our due diligence.” The information regarding Les Miles was released on Thursday. The report given by LSU said”A report released on behalf of LSU showed that a 2013 internal investigation at the school accused Miles of inappropriate behavior toward female students, including allegations that he contacted some via Facebook and text, met them off campus alone and kissed at least one of them. The report did not find that he had sexual relationships with any of the women, and Miles strongly denied kissing the student, saying he didn’t do anything wrong and that he was mentoring young women at the university.”
Like I said in a previous article, spring football begins for college programs this week.
