  2. Boller is the starter

    Ravens Coach Says 'Boller Is Our Starting Quarterback' Billick Says Injured QB Will Retain Spot Once He Returns OWINGS MILLS, Md. (Sept. 15) - The toe injury that forced Kyle Boller out of Sunday's game against Tennessee will not cost him his job as Baltimore Ravens quarterback. Eager to clarify his remark Wednesday that Anthony Wright "will be our starting quarterback until circumstances change," coach Brian Billick emphasized Thursday that his confidence in Boller has not waned. "Kyle Boller is our starting quarterback," he said. "If Kyle is able to return in the two- to three-week prognosis that we currently have, he will be our starting quarterback." Boller could be available to face the New York Jets on Oct. 2, which follows the Ravens' bye week. "Anthony Wright is the starter for an undetermined period right now due to injury," Billick said. "Kyle Boller is our starting quarterback. If I left it open to interpretation, if I left that in a way that led to speculation that we did not have the faith in Kyle, that our faith is wavering, that was not my intent." Boller hyperextended his right big toe and injured his ankle in last Sunday's 24-7 loss to Indianapolis. He is currently wearing a protective boot. "I feel pretty good right now," Boller said. "It kind of throbs a little bit, but it's settling down. I just don't want to put a lot of pressure on my toe. It kind of hurts my leg a little bit, carrying (the boot) around. "Right now, it's my job and my responsibility to support (Wright) and help him out. It's about this team and about winning. Anything I can do to help him, I'm going to do. He did when I was out there." This will be Wright's second stint as Baltimore's starter. After Boller was injured in a 2003 midseason game at St. Louis, Wright took over and won five of seven starts down the stretch to lead the Ravens to the AFC North title. 09/15/05 14:42 EDT Copyright 2005 The Associated Press.

  11. UCLA Favored vs. Oklahoma

    The line is directly related to the Fate of Peterson Stoops on Sooners star: 'We anticipate him playing' Sep. 13, 2005 CBS SportsLine.com wire reports NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said he'll decide later this week whether suspended tailback Adrian Peterson will start Saturday against UCLA. Advertisement "We'll see. At this point, we anticipate him playing," Stoops said Tuesday. "Start or not depends on how we feel practice is going, what we feel we need to do. Depending on what further happens from here, we'll see." Peterson, who rushed for 220 yards and three touchdowns in Oklahoma's 31-15 win against Tulsa on Saturday, was suspended from practice on Monday and Tuesday after missing classes. He was allowed to participate in team meetings and other activities, but is not allowed to speak to reporters. Peterson's suspension was a result of a new Oklahoma athletic department policy on class attendance implemented this year. Under the policy, obtained by the Associated Press, athletes who accumulate four unexcused absences are suspended from practice for two days. For each subsequent absence, athletes are suspended for the next scheduled competition. After struggling in the opener, Adrian Peterson bounced back with 220 rushing yards vs. Tulsa. (AP) Athletes also can lose other privileges, including complimentary game admissions and athletic awards, and be excluded from competing in postseason play. Coaches can institute other attendance guidelines, provided athletes are notified in writing at the beginning of the academic year. Athletic director Joe Castiglione said the new approach was one of the university's strategies to improve academic performance and retention and make sure athletes are progressing toward their degrees. "This is just one element of a number of things that we are doing," Castiglione said. Stoops endorses that policy. "In the end, they're here to go to school, and it should be our job as administrators or as coaches that if they're not, we can't put you on the field," Stoops said. No. 21 Oklahoma announced the suspension in a statement sent to a limited number of news organizations following the Sooners' closed practice Monday night. "I probably shouldn't have said (Monday), but everyone finds out anyway," Stoops said. "In fairness to him, it probably doesn't need to be me coming out and saying that. In the end, that's the situation, and it's better than all the rumors being around about it." Peterson's suspension came nine days after the team's starting quarterback, 20-year-old Rhett Bomar, was cited for possession of alcohol by a minor. "We're doing things discipline-wise, and everything else like we always have," Stoops said. "That doesn't mean it's right or good, and it's fair to criticize me because some teams accept it better than others and listen or are disciplined better than others."

  14. Tie-breaker

    Tie breakers should no doubt be put in place before the season starts. Since there is no rule in place this weeks tie needs to stay. I think the rule has to start next year since you had a tie already. If you change the rules now and not allow ties it may be unfair to the 2 teams that had a tie this week and it could effect season standings at the end of the year.
