Around Big East


Football

Virginia Tech football coach Frank Beamer saw his team's running game hit the wall last Saturday -- literally.
Junior tailback Kevin Jones, the Hokies' leading returning rusher, was injured at the 13:17 mark of the second quarter in a 43-0 home win over James Madison. Defensive tackle Demetrius Shambley shoved Jones after he had gone out of bounds and the tailback crashed into an adjacent wall located on the west side of Lane Stadium.
Brick wall stops Tech's Jones

Syracuse University's struggling defense will be without senior starters Josh Thomas and Jameel Dumas when the Orangemen play host to Louisville on Saturday at the Carrier Dome.
Head coach Paul Pasqualoni said Monday that Thomas and Dumas would miss the game because of injuries each suffered in Syracuse's 49-47 triple-overtime victory over North Carolina on Saturday. The school said each player injured his left knee.
SU defense suffers another body blow

There were times during his weekly news conference yesterday that Pitt coach Walt Harris sounded a lot like South Carolina's Lou Holtz.
"There are no 'take-it-for-granted games' anymore and every game is a struggle," Harris said, referring to the Panthers' matchup Saturday with Ball State. "All you have to do is look at the scores around the country and realize it can happen at any time. Ball State had a good game against Missouri last week and Missouri is[receiving votes in the polls]. I thought Ball State played them very well for most of the game
Panthers wary of Ball State

As he walked off the field at Beaver Stadium following Boston College's stirring 27-14 victory over Penn State Saturday, Derrick Knight was stopped by a Nittany Lion fan bearing a small parting gift. It was a blue button that read "BC is history," circulated among the crowd of 106,445 before the game by a local bank.

Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett faces an indefinite suspension, effectively ending his career with the Buckeyes, two Ohio television stations reported Monday night.
Clarett faces indefinite suspension

Members of the Bowl Championship Series' Presidential Oversight Committee met Monday in Chicago with presidents of schools that are not included in the BCS in what was described as a first step in trying to bring resolution to postseason football issues between the groups.
Council, critics open talks on future

Tulane president Scott Cowen began saber rattling in the spring when he referred to the six power conferences that have automatic berths in the Bowl Coaltion Series as a cartel. He also claimed the BCS was destroying college football by eliminating half of the eligible Division I programs from those $13 million payday January bowl games.
Cowen's point was this: Last year, the 63 BCS schools shared $104 million while the rest of the 117 Division I-A programs split $5 million.
