|Vandy hires Frank Maile as defensive line coach (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: March 11, 2014, 5:05 pm]
Vanderbilt has hired Frank Maile as defensive line coach to fill a position that opened up when Vavae Tata pleaded guilty to a charge of drunk driving. After being hired on Jan. 24, Tata was arrested Feb. 16 and suspended two days later. Tata pleaded guilty to drunk driving March 5 in an agreement that dismissed a count of leaving the scene of an accident, and Vanderbilt announced later that day that Tata wouldn't be part of Derek Mason's coaching staff this season. Maile spent the last six years on Utah State's staff and was the Aggies' defensive line coach the past three seasons.
Ex-Iowa player sues over 2011 workout injuries (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: March 11, 2014, 9:54 am]
One of 13 University of Iowa football players who were hospitalized after a high-intensity workout three years ago says it caused him lasting physical and mental harm, outlining his claims in the first lawsuit to stem from the incident. Former Hawkeyes cornerback William Lowe, of Cleveland, alleges in a lawsuit filed Monday in Johnson County district court that coaches and trainers failed to properly supervise and monitor him during the Jan. 20, 2011, workout. He also says the school failed to offer medical care after he and others reported severe pain and symptoms, and that his injuries were aggravated because he was required to participate in additional workouts in the following days. They were diagnosed with exertional rhabdomyolysis, the result of muscles breaking down and releasing proteins into the bloodstream, which in severe cases can cause kidney failure.

Iowa State opens spring ball with QB questions (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: March 11, 2014, 2:27 am]
Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads is signed through the 2021 season at a place that understands the challenges of fielding a winner in the Big 12. Iowa State has plenty of questions to answer, most notably at quarterback, and a revamped coaching staff will get its first chance to work with the Cyclones outside of the film room. Incoming sophomore Grant Rohach appears to be the favorite after closing 2013 with a relative flourish. Rohach started in late wins over Kansas and West Virginia, and he threw for 331 yards and four touchdowns in rallying the Cyclones from a 24-point deficit at West Virginia in poor weather.

Oklahoma State's decision not to hold a traditional spring game has been met with some criticism. Coach Mike Gundy feels he knows best. Because of the low number of available players for the spring, Gundy doesn't think the fans would get their money's worth out of a ''watered down'' spring game. Oklahoma State instead will hold an ''Orange Blitz,'' a 90-minute practice on April 5 that will be open to the public.

Three of the four scholarship quarterbacks on Tennessee's roster got hurt last season as the Vols ended up starting three players at the position.

The Florida State Seminoles wrapped up their winter conditioning program Thursday and coach Jimbo Fisher raved about the atmosphere and how the players understand the culture and what it takes to be elite. What I'm looking for is another group of hungry guys who are willing to pay the same price they did last year when they didn't know they were real good.'' Florida State wrapped up nearly four weeks of conditioning Thursday as new roles are formed throughout the roster. Gone are offensive leaders James Wilder Jr., Devonta Freeman and Kenny Shaw.

Off late collapse by defense, Meyer demands change (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: March 6, 2014, 6:01 pm]
Angry with the way his defense played in its last three games, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer is urging his players to attack more and think less. ''It's a fast-paced game (with coaches dealing with getting players) lined up as opposed to it used to be a game based on effort,'' Meyer said. ''And I want to get back to that.'' The Buckeyes held their second practice of the spring Thursday, and as will be the case throughout the 15 workouts the emphasis is on relying on instinct and playing without restraint instead of following the diagrammed play and reacting. Ohio State surrendered an average of more than 38 points and 539 yards a game while closing out 1-2 in the most important games of 2013.
South Carolina opens spring practice without stars (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: March 6, 2014, 4:45 pm]

A cold rain forced the Gamecocks into a closed practice in their cramped, outdated indoor facility Thursday. They wanted to get at least one practice in before spring break started this weekend.

Most of the intrigue heading into the spring is on offense, since the Sooners return 11 starters on defense. Trevor Knight enters the spring as the undisputed starting quarterback after his showing in the Sugar Bowl.
NCAA panel approves change to targeting penalty (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: March 6, 2014, 3:16 pm]
An NCAA panel has approved a change to the targeting foul that would wipe out the 15-penalty when video review overturns the ejection of a player. The targeting rule was implemented by the NCAA last season. The foul was reviewed by replay officials and the ejection could be overturned - but the 15-yard penalty stood. The football rules committee last month passed a proposal to no longer enforce the 15-yard penalty when the ejection is overturned, as long as another foul has not been committed.
Tennessee hopes coaching stability brings success (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: March 6, 2014, 2:27 pm]
The big difference at Tennessee this spring is how much has stayed the same. Tennessee coach Butch Jones opens spring practice Friday with all the same coordinators and position coaches who were with him last year. This marks the first time Tennessee has returned its entire coaching staff intact since 2007, when it went on to reach the Southeastern Conference championship game. You win with consistency and continuity, consistency in messaging.'' When Jones took over at Tennessee, he became Volunteers' fourth coach in six seasons, not including Jim Chaney's one-game stint as an interim coach in 2012.
