TAMPA, Fla. (AP) A University of South Florida football player who was shot during a violent road-rage incident has been cut from the team.

Coach Charlie Strong announced Tuesday that senior safety Hassan Childs had been dismissed. The 22-year-old had one more season of eligibility.

Tampa police say Childs was about a mile from the USF campus Saturday night when he twice pointed a gun at a car carrying a couple and their 3-year-old son. The man driving the car drew his own gun and fired three times. Childs was hospitalized with gunshot wounds but expected to make a full recovery.


Dantonio concerned with MSU allegations

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) With his program embroiled in a sexual assault investigation, Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio decided more conventional questions about spring practice would have to wait.

There are far more serious issues facing the Spartans this offseason.


Arkansas panel backs gun ban at stadiums

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) An Arkansas House committee advanced a measure Tuesday to exempt college sporting events from a state law allowing guns after the Southeastern Conference appealed for guns to be banned from facilities such as football stadiums.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson signed the new state law last week allowing concealed handguns at colleges, government buildings, some bars and even the State Capitol.


Gators' Tabor to NFL teams: 'Press play'

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) Florida cornerback Jalen "Teez" Tabor wants NFL coaches, general managers and scouts to forget everything he's done the last two months.

The 40-yard dash, the vertical leap, the broad jump, the shuttle run, the cone drill, the bench press, flush them all.


WRs stand out in Buckeyes' passing game

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said Tuesday that Parris Campbell is distinguishing himself at receiver, and K.J. Hill, Terry McLaurin and Binjimen Victor are right behind him as the Buckeyes try to breathe some life back into their passing game this spring.

The four wide receivers, along with Austin Mack and Johnnie Dixon, all saw playing time and showed flashes of talent last year, but none broke out as a top playmaker or reliable deep threat as expected. Meyer needs that to change next season, especially after the departure of the team's two top receivers, H-back Curtis Samuel and wideout Noah Brown.


Washington spring: 'Back to square one'

SEATTLE (AP) A little over a week after his sophomore season ended, Trey Adams sat down and watched Alabama and Clemson play in a memorable national championship game.

He couldn't stop imaging being there in place of the Crimson Tide.


'Bathroom bill' proves costly for NC

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Despite Republican assurances that North Carolina's "bathroom bill" isn't hurting the economy, the law limiting LGBT protections will cost the state more than $3.76 billion in lost business over a dozen years, according to an Associated Press analysis.

Over the past year, North Carolina has suffered financial hits ranging from scuttled plans for a PayPal facility that would have added an estimated $2.66 billion to the state's economy to a canceled Ringo Starr concert that deprived a town's amphitheater of about $33,000 in revenue. The blows have landed in the state's biggest cities as well as towns surrounding its flagship university, and from the mountains to the coast.


Hogs hoping to improve with new-look 'D'

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) Bret Bielema grew up playing outside linebacker in a 3-4 defensive alignment before eventually moving to the defensive line and enjoying success there as a player at Iowa.

Now entering his fifth season as the Arkansas coach, Bielema is about to pass those 3-4 lessons forward as the Razorbacks begin spring practice on Tuesday while looking for a quick fix to what was nothing short of an abysmal defensive performance last season.


Georgia Tech opens spring in need of QB

ATLANTA (AP) Georgia Tech ended last season with quite a flourish.

For the Yellow Jackets to build on that momentum, they'll need to find another quarterback.


Juror: Ex-PSU prez's email was key proof

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) A juror who voted to convict Penn State's former president of child endangerment said that the defendant's own words in a 2001 email amounted to some of the strongest evidence against him.

Victoria Navazio said Monday that an email from Graham Spanier to former co-defendants Gary Schultz and Tim Curley showed that he knew children were at risk.
