UNDATED (AP) — Jirehl Brock’s time has arrived at Iowa State. He showed up in Ames as a four-star recruit and ranked as one of the nation’s top running back prospects. For three seasons he waited his turn behind Breece Hall. Brock said he never considered transferring. As the Cyclones wrap up spring practice this week, Brock has a firm hold on the No. 1 running back’s job. The fourth-year junior from Quincy, Illinois, is the successor to one of the most dynamic playmakers in program history. Brock appeared in 27 games as a backup the past three years.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama coach Nick Saban is concerned about the current state of college football. He recently told The Associated Press “I don’t think what we’re doing right now is a sustainable model.” The new era of college athletics sees players having more opportunities to earn money than ever before and more power to determine where they play. Saban says if college athletes are going to be paid, he would like Alabama to provide the same amount to everyone on his team while supporting their ability to earn as much as they can in endorsement and sponsorship deals after they get to college.
