The NCAA Clearinghouse has rejected an appeal on behalf of Colorado linebacker Odell George for practicing in early August before the NCAA challenged his high school core classes, Coach Rick Neuheisel said in Boulder.

George, a freshman from Vista, Calif., now becomes a non-qualifier and must withdraw from the university.

“I’d like him to play for a junior college,” Neuheisel said.


Will Blackwell, San Diego State’s top wide receiver, sprained his right knee in practice ad is expected to be out for two to three weeks. . . . A presentation by ABC in Dallas helped persuade athletic directors in the Big 12 Conference to give their reluctant endorsement of a “super alliance” of bowl games leading to an unprecedented college football national title game.
