There are so many college athletes getting in trouble these days that sports writers and commentators have a debate going on as to who is to blame for all of these bad actions.  Is it the coach, the academic advisor, the college recruiter, or the player himself?

When Batesville and Milan played their annual “Bell” game, both teams were missing their top running backs.  Michael Thompson of Milan, I understand, has an ACL injury and is probably out for the season.  This is not only a blow to the Milan football fortune, but a sadder end to a great high school...
