Freeze's fall at Ole Miss partially traced to Nutt's suit

The man whom Hugh Freeze replaced as Mississippi's football coach was at least partially responsible for Freeze's stunning downfall.

It was a recently filed civil lawsuit from Houston Nutt — who coached Ole Miss from 2008 to '11 — against the university that unearthed the phone records that eventually revealed Freeze's school-issued cellphone had dialed an escort service on at least one occasion in 2016.

Swinney: Clemson's McCloud likely limited early in practice

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson receiver Ray-Ray McCloud will be limited when the Tigers start practice as he recovers from an injured wrist.

McCloud needed a pin placed in his wrist this offseason. Tigers coach Dabo Swinney said McCloud will be able to practice when the national champions return to the field for fall camp on Aug. 3. But Swinney said McCloud likely will not be full-go for a week or so as he continues to recover.
