Vols back won't play vs. Gamecocks


Tennessee senior fullback Kevin Cooper is being suspended for Saturday's game at South Carolina.


Coach Derek Dooley said Wednesday that he was suspending the Chattanooga, Tenn., native because he violated a team academic policy.

The 6-foot, 242-pound Cooper has played in all seven games this season and started five for the Vols.

GEORGIA: Washaun Ealey 's knee injury could keep the tailback from starting against Florida, but coach Mark Richt expects the sophomore to play Saturday.

Richt said Ealey's knee bothered him Wednesday.

Caleb King , returning from a two-game suspension after his arrest for failing to appear in court for a speeding ticket, might get the starting call.

"I don't even know who's going to start right now," Richt said.

NOTRE DAME: A Notre Dame student died Wednesday after the tower from which he was filming football practice fell over.

Declan Sullivan , a 20-year-old junior from Long Grove, Ill., was transported from the LaBar practice complex to a South Bend hospital, where he died.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to Declan's family and friends," coach Brian Kelly said in a release. "Declan was a diligent student worker in our video department and had a tremendous personality and great sense of humor. He brightened the days for all that had the privilege to work with him, and the Notre Dame football family will dearly miss him."

CONNECTICUT: Coach Randy Edsall says someone has been spying on his practices and posting a blow-by-blow description on the Internet.

Edsall said he was alerted to the problem by the parent of a player, who saw the postings Tuesday on a UConn message board.

Edsall said they apparently came from a student living in a dorm room that overlooks the team's practice field.
