The report is not related to the domestic and sexual assault scandal that rocked the Baylor program and led the school to fire head coach Art Briles, Kendal Briles' father. Baylor suspended Kendal Briles and Wallis for one game in 2015 and prohibited them from recruiting off-campus for 12 weeks after impermissible evaluations and contacts with Dallas-area prospects.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, always a thoughtful and typically unfiltered quote on these things, spoke with Mad Dog Sports Radio and blasted the NCAA and bowl game setup for being "absolutely ridiculous" in terms of how it compensates players.
The plays. They're right there on YouTube, living in infamy. In the span of about 35 seconds last March, Jacobson's Northern Iowa team blew a 12-point lead at the end of regulation in a second-round NCAA Tournament game against Texas A&M.
