Nacita says disregarding guidance from Baylor was mistake (Yahoo Sports)

In this Nov. 8, 2014, photo, Baylor NCAA college football player Silas Nacita walks off the field after a game against Oklahoma in Norman, Okla. Baylor says running back Silas Nacita will no longer be part of the football program because of rules violations that affect his eligibility. Nacita, a walk-on reserve from Bakersfield, California, posted on Twitter on Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015, he had been ruled ineligible by the NCAA because he accepted an offer from a close family friend to provide a place for him to live when he could not afford to pay for it himself. (AP Photo/Waco Tribune Herald, Rod Aydelotte)

Former Baylor running back Silas Nacita says he made a mistake by ''disregarding guidance'' from the school's compliance department and accepting benefits that led to him being removed from the team. Baylor announced Tuesday that Nacita, whose story of overcoming an unstable family situation to play major college football made him a fan favorite, was no longer part of the program. ''The family members who offered assistance were merely acquaintances who I met at home in Bakersfield, CA.'' He said he did not think he was doing anything wrong but, ''now I can see that I made a mistake by disregarding guidance from Baylor compliance on what benefits I may accept.'' ''I take full responsibility for my choice to accept these inappropriate benefits,'' Nacita wrote. Nacita thanked Baylor coach Art Briles, athletic director Ian McCaw and university president Ken Starr for ''rallying around'' him throughout his time in Waco.

Judge: Keeping Sandusky lawsuit in Philadelphia not a burden (Yahoo Sports)

A judge presiding over a civil lawsuit against Penn State and ex-assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky by one of the accusers who testified in Sandusky's criminal child sex abuse trial says keeping the case in Philadelphia doesn't present a burden to potential witnesses or to the university. Penn State is based in State College, about 200 miles northwest of Philadelphia, and has appealed Judge Angelo Foglietta's decision to keep the lawsuit there. The judge last week issued an opinion that said Penn State ''failed to establish more than inconvenience'' if he did not move the litigation to Centre County, where the university is headquartered. ''PSU is not a small sole proprietorship or 'mom & pop' store where the absence of a single person would truly be burdensome and oppressive to its daily operations.'' Penn State is appealing the decision in Superior Court.

Louisville coach Rick Pitino had reached his limit with Chris Jones, even before he knew the senior guard was facing felony rape and sodomy charges. Demonstrating a zero tolerance for any more misbehavior after reinstating Jones from a one-game suspension, Pitino abruptly dismissed him from the team. Pitino says all he knew for certain at the time was that Jones had broken a curfew, but had no details about more serious accusations looming. Then Thursday, Jones pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree rape and sodomy.

No. 3 Gonzaga sluggish but gets past San Diego, 59-39 (Yahoo Sports)

For all the frustration it caused, the slower and sometimes sluggish way No. 3 Gonzaga was forced to play Thursday night by San Diego could prove to be a benefit. There is a good chance the Bulldogs will have to play that way sometime in March. Przemek Karnowski scored 11 of his 14 points in the second half, Domantas Sabonis added 11 off the bench, and Gonzaga overcame a sluggish first half to beat San Diego 59-39 for its 22nd straight victory. ''What we've tried to do is take this weekend and say this is similar to what the first weekend of the NCAAs is going to be like,'' Gonzaga coach Mark Few said.
