    A college football news roundup that includes Michigan losing a starting cornerback for the season and Nebraska players facing backlash after a protest.


    I’m not sure if I have mentioned this in the daily roundup or not, but we at Campus Insiders launched a brand new website this past Friday. It is awesome. You should really go check it out. While there, read about Alabama head coach Nick Saban discussing Les Miles, Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey’s motivation, and who’s hot and who’s not in college football right now. Here are some other newsworthy notes in the latest college football news roundup.

    Michigan Loses Key Player – After tearing his ACL in the win against Penn State on Saturday, Michigan cornerback Jeremy Clark will miss the rest of the season. The Wolverines will try and acquire a sixth year of eligibility for Clark by saying his redshirt freshman season was not a coach’s decision.

    Florida Gets Its Man – In a bit of non-shocking news, Florida will hire Mississippi State athletic director Scott Stricklin to the same position in Gainesville. Stricklin seemed to be the Gators’ first choice all along, but reports are that he initially turned the job down before reversing course.

    Backlash From Protest – After protesting by kneeling during the national anthem before the game against Northwestern, Nebraska linebacker Michael Rose-Ivey said that he and teammates have faced some major backlash to their actions, including racial insults.

    “Some believe DaiShon, Mohamed and myself should be kicked off the team or suspended, while some said we deserved to be lynched or shot like the other black people who have died recently,” Rose-Ivey said before collecting himself. “Another believed that since we didn’t want to stand for the anthem that we should be hung before the anthem at the next game.”
