Georgia v South Carolina

Marcus Lattimore may not play against Florida


One of the biggest games for the SEC East division title takes place this Saturday when No. 9 South Carolina visits No. 3 Florida. However, the Gamecocks may have to try to survive the Swamp without its best offensive player, running back Marcus Lattimore.

Steve Spurrier mentioned Wednesday that Lattimore is has a hip injury and may not play against the Gators. Kenny Miles is likely to get the start.

“Marcus Lattimore did not practice again today,” Spurrier said. “I don’t know how to list him. I’m not sure if he’s even going to be able to play. (Jadeveon) Clowney is limited – his foot is bothering him. And of course the defensive tackles, (Kelcy) Quarles, (JT) Surratt and (Byron) Jerideau; Quarles probably won’t play. JT and Jerideau are limited, so we’ve got the freshmen guys, Phillip Dukes and Gerald Dixon (Jr.), ready to go. So we’re sort of banged up a little bit all of a sudden.”

Suffice to say these are inopportune injuries if there ever were some.

Lattimore has 584 yards on the ground this season and 10 touchdowns. He missed roughly half of last year because of a knee injury.

Spurrier also said receivers Ace Sanders and Bruce Ellington have the flu and are questionable to play. Meanwhile, Florida is getting a handful of key players back this week, so things are already looking favorable for the Gators.

Colorado had already lost one starting inside linebacker to injury.  Now, the Buffs have lost another.

Kenneth Olugbode sustained an unspecified leg injury in the Week 5 loss to Oregon. As a result, Olugbode will miss 4-6 weeks.

At minimum, Olugbode will miss games against Arizona State, Arizona, Oregon State and UCLA, possibly returning for the Nov. 7 game against Stanford. Missing six weeks would see him miss the Stanford and USC games, returning, Nov. 21 vs. Washington State.

It’s going to be a big loss,” defensive tackle Justin Solis said according to the Denver Post. “It starts up front with us, the D-line. Not having K.O. out there is a huge loss, but it’s definitely something we accept as a challenge as a D-line. We’re going to step it up while he’s out.”

Olugbode had started all five games this season after starting all 12 games as a sophomore last season. Ryan Severson is expected to take his place in the starting lineup.

Back on September 10, it was announced that Jim Harbaugh had dismissed Logan Tuley-Tillman for “conduct unacceptable for a Michigan student-athlete.”  Now we know what that unacceptable conduct was.  Allegedly.

Wednesday morning, is reporting, Tuley-Tillman was charged with three felonies stemming from a Sept. 4 incident in which he’s accused of filming a sex act with a woman without her knowledge. Tuley-Tillman was officially charged with two counts of capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person and one count of using a computer to commit a crime.

From the report:

Capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person is punishable by up to two years in prison, a fine of no more than $2,000, or both. Using a computer to commit a crime, in this case, would be punishable by up to 10 years in prison, a fine of no more than $5,000, or both.

The incident occurred in the 300 block of Catherine Street Sept. 4. Tuley-Tillman is accused of filming a portion of a sexual encounter with a woman without her knowledge and then transmitting it to his personal device without her permission, according to Ann Arbor police.

Tuley-Tillman was a four-star member of Brady Hoke‘s second-to-last UM recruiting class, rated as the No. 24 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 7 player at any position in the state of Illinois.  He played in one game as a redshirt freshman last season, the season opener against Appalachian State.

This season, he had been listed as the No. 2 left tackle and played in the 2015 opener.
