California Appeals Ban

November 09, 2002|Times Wire Services

California officials appeared Friday before an NCAA appeals committee in Indianapolis in a bid to overturn the school's one-year bowl ban.

The ban was issued in June after the program was cited for violations involving academic fraud and extra benefits.

A ruling on the appeal is expected within two weeks. California (5-4), which plays at Arizona State (7-3) today, needs one victory to become bowl eligible.

Michigan State, which fired Bobby Williams as coach on Monday, has an interest in Washington Redskin defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis, according to the Washington Post. Although the school has yet to form a search committee and there has been no official contact between the parties, sources told the paper that Lewis would be interested in the job.... Michigan State changed the status of tailback and former co-captain Dawan Moss from dismissed from the team to suspended indefinitely. Although school officials did not explain the reason for the change, it could clear the way for Moss to rejoin the Spartans. Moss was arrested early Sunday morning for drunken driving and fleeing and eluding police. He is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.... Bucknell Coach Tom Gadd will not return from a leave of absence he took before the season for cancer treatments.
