>>Report: Ohio State's Miller Re-Injures Shoulder

(Columbus, OH) -- Ohio State's football season might have taken a huge blow. "The Dispatch" is reporting starting quarterback Braxton Miller re-injured his right shoulder in practice on Monday and could miss the entire season. The Buckeyes have not confirmed the injury. Redshirt-freshman J.T. Barrett would most likely take Miller's place with the first team.  width=Miller was recovering from shoulder surgery in February because of an injury suffered during the Orange Bowl. He had been brought along slowly by head coach Urban Meyer in camp. Ohio State opens the season on August 30th against Navy in Baltimore.

>>Sooners Suspend RB Mixon For Season

(Norman, OK) -- The Oklahoma Sooners are suspending running back Joe Mixon for the entire season. The highly-touted freshman was charged Friday with misdemeanor assault after being accused of punching a woman in the face at a cafe last month. Mixon could face up to a year in jail if convicted. The Oakley, California product was one of the top-ten running back recruits in the nation.

>>Hawaii Football In Jeopardy

(Honolulu, HI) -- The University of Hawaii could be in danger of having to say goodbye to its football team. In a conversation with the school's board of regents, athletic director Ben Jay said there's a real possibility of the football program having to fold. The athletic department currently faces a 2.1-million-dollar budget deficit and has operated in the negative for 11 of the past 13 seasons. Jay also stated that the only solution to saving the rest of the athletic teams may be cutting the football program all together. The Warriors hold a 4-and-20 record under current head coach Norm Chow and have failed to sell more than 18-thousand season tickets since the 1970's.
