NCAA Finally Takes Action Against UCLA Opponent's Star Running Back

The headline is too easy in a week like this. From the Houston Chronicle:

The NCAA has ruled Houston Cougars running back Charles Sims ineligible for the 2010 season, the university announced on Tuesday.

Sims, the 2009 Conference USA Freshman of the Year, will remain in school but cannot compete in any games this season. Sims, a sophomore from Westbury, had 759 yards receiving and 698 rushing last season in helping the Cougars to a 10-4 record.

In a release issued by the university, UH coach Kevin Sumlin praised Sims for his attitude during the situation and expects him to have a positive impact on teammates. Citing privacy laws, Sumlin and university officials declined further comment.

Officials from the Houston Athletic department didn't issue any comment due to student privacy concerns. Sims was a key weapon for the Cougars' explosive offense. In addition to the yards he piled up both rushing and receiving, Sims scored 10 TDs.

Still Rahim Moore, Akeem Ayers and rest of the Bruin defense don't have any reasons to relax. Bryce Beal will most likely take over the starting TB spot and he wasn't too shabby last year as he rushed for 670 yards and 7 TDs. Although he didn't have as many receiving yards as Sims (311) he still scored 3 TDs.  Plus Case Keenum (a pre-season Heisman contender) will have 3 WRs who each caught for more than 1,000 yards.

Still very interesting news about NCAA punishing a college running back on a week like this. Wonder what the NCAA will have store when official news comes out concerning you know who.
