I felt good going in about how we would play.” Georgia State started the FBS and Sun Belt season by beating Abilene Christian 38-37 on Wednesday at the Georgia Dome. The win broke a 16-game losing streak for the Panthers. “We’re very excited for our young men,” GSU coach Trent Miles said. “We’re very excited for our Panther family, our students, administration, the faculty, and anybody that has anything to do with Georgia State University. Our kids fought through a lot of adversity. They never quit believing. The whole time, they believed in themselves and they believed in the fact that we were going to win the game no matter what.” In other games against FBS competition, the Belt went a combined 0-3 and was outscored 124-47.

Many states have actually been far more aggressive in going after the for-profit colleges that Miller and his former colleagues at the Department dislike so much. If anything, Id be worried ( as I was here ) that some states would be even more protectionist than accreditors under Lees plan. Weissmann goes on to argue that a better course would be to just modify the existing accreditation system to allow for tiers of accreditation, where institutions on the lower rungs would have their aid eligibility restricted rather than cut off altogether. Its certainly a worthwhile idea, because the binary nature of accreditation has created a massive barrier to exitnobody wants to pull the trigger when a colleges life is on the line.

4 College Football Teams Who Jumped onto the Playoff Committee’s Radar in Week 1 | Bleacher Report

Here are four that either recorded big wins over Top 25 teams or showed up big despite off-field concerns and should be considered. Texas A&M (1-0) Much like Texas A&M in 2012 in the team’s inaugural SEC season, the ’14 Aggies caught just about everyone (outside College Station) by surprise. Rainier Ehrhardt/Associated Press A 52-28 win over No. 9 South Carolina in Columbia was as convincing a victory as any team could claim in Week 1. If anything, it showed that head coach Kevin Sumlin’s hurry-up, no-huddle offense didn’t need the most electrifying quarterback in college football, Johnny Manziel, to run it. A young but talented defense led by defensive end Myles Garrett and defensive back Armani Watts still has room to improve. But if A&M’s offense runs that smoothly every week, the defense won’t need to be a shutdown unit. A&M’s nonconference schedule should be a breeze, but the heart of SEC play will determine whether the Aggies really have what it takes to be one of the four best teams in the country. If South Carolina can right the ship and turn in a good-to-great season, it’s only going to help A&M’s resume. After Thursday’s win, though, Sumlin’s team should have everyone’s attention. Georgia (1-0) Piggybacking off of South Carolina’s loss, fellow SEC East member Georgia had the next-most convincing win.

‘Never happen’: The dollars and sense behind why John Cena remains WWE’s top babyface – Yahoo Sports

SPORTS Friends and fellow church members bought their supplies from him. Contractors gave him their business. The Red Cross found a temporary shelter for them. Friends and strangers alike replied to an appeal on his website for donations. And, perhaps most surprisingly, Sears replaced many of his burned Craftsman tools.

The key is merchandise. With Bryan and Punk gone, Cena’s merchandise was recently and may still be outselling the entire rest of the roster combined. Heel turns kill merch sales, not to mention ticket sales to kids, which make up a strong percentage of the WWE audience and the Cena shows this year were doing more than $60,000 above the non-Cena shows in ticket sales (and shows without Cena are doing well below the usual levels for house shows in the cities they have been in while Cena shows have not). Think about that for a minute. One guy’s product generates more sales than the gear associated with everyone else.
