Maryland quarterback Stan Gelbaugh will be following in the footsteps of his former roommate when he leads the East in today's 40th annual Hula Bowl college all-star football game.
Gelbaugh roomed with Frank Reich, who set a record in last year's game by passing for 194 yards in a quarter. Reich finished with 230 yards and two touchdown passes in the East's 34-14 victory over the West before becoming a backup quarterback this past season for the Buffalo Bills . . .
Tennessee has decided to revoke the scholarships of two former football players arrested this week on drug charges.
Athletic Director Doug Dickey said Tony Robinson and Kenneth (B.B.) Cooper could regain their grants if they are cleared of charges they sold an ounce of cocaine to undercover police. Cooper had registered for the winter quarter. However, Robinson was dismissed from the university for academic reasons on Dec. 18 . . .
Northeast Louisiana's ninth-ranked women's basketball team has been ruled ineligible for this year's NCAA tournament for illegally recruiting star center Chana Perry, the association announced. It is the first time the NCAA has applied a probation with penalties to a women's program.
Perry was declared ineligible for the rest of the season, and Coach Linda Harper is forbidden to recruit off-campus for a year.
The NCAA said the school provided Perry with illegal transportation and lodging while she was being recruited, that she was loaned a wristwatch, illegally introduced to a representative of the university's athletic interests and shot baskets at Northeast's gym with an assistant coach watching.
Also, the NCAA said the assistant coach -- no longer at the school -- lied to investigators looking into the matter.
