No. 46: Baylor

Robert Griffin III is gone, off to Washington, where he has already won the hearts of the burgundy-and-gold clad faithful, to no one’s surprise. He’ll be seen again in Waco, but only in highlight montages — he has time… launches it into the end zone… touchdown! — and on the odd fall Saturday, should he be free of all N.F.L. obligations.

      “Everybody Does It,” Says Oregon

      The details aren’t in question; whether Oregon stepped outside the lines, however, might be up for debate. According to a Yahoo! Sports report, Oregon gave more than $28,000 to a pair of individuals “with ties to multiple recruits who signed letters of intent with the school,” including redshirt freshman Lache Seastrunk, once a heralded recruit, and Heisman Trophy contender LaMichael James. That’s according to official Oregon state — that’s the state itself, not the school in Corvallis — records, numbers that place the Oregon program firmly in the cross hairs of the N.C.A.A.
