YOU WOULDN'T think Ohio State big man Jared Sullinger would have anything left to prove, but according to NBA docs, taking Sullinger in the first round is a bad call. According to ESPN.com, a few doctors say Sullinger comes complete with a bad back and advised teams that drafting him in Round 1 could be risky. "He had a bulging area that was due to his hamstring and quads being so tight," Sullinger's dad, Satch, told ESPN.com. "It pulled on his hip flexor and he's been taking care of it to loosen it.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Miami has declared a number of its football players ineligible until they are reinstated by the NCAA. A source close to the team confirmed to ESPN.com that the Hurricanes had declared ineligible up to 13 players under investigation by the NCAA in order to allow it to make a ruling by the season opener. Miami's internal investigation has determined some players, including quarterback Jacory Harris, are believed to have committed NCAA violations by associating with booster Nevin Shapiro and have been declared ineligible, a person with knowledge of the process told the Associated Press . Shapiro is a convicted Ponzi-scheme architect serving a 20-year prison sentence for bilking $930 million from investors, and his claims have cast a long shadow over Miami's season before it even begins.
