When University of Cincinnati QB Zach Collaros fractured his ankle in the November 12 loss to West Virginia at Paul Brown Stadium, it looked he was finished for the year.

But during his rehab since that date, Collaros has been ahead of schedule by two weeks according to doctors.

There is a chance that Collaros could play in today’s (December 31) game in the Liberty Bowl against Vanderbilt.

Collaros passed for 1,860 yards and 14 touchdowns. While he was absent for three games, head coach Butch Jones used the two-QB system of Munchie Legaux and Jordan Luallen that was good enough to win a piece of the Big East championship.

The Bearcats (9-3, 5-2 Big East) are returning to the postseason after last year’s diasppointing 4-8 record.

Their opponent, the Vanderbilt Commodores finished at 6-6 overall, 2-6 in the SEC. They’re making just its fifth bowl game ever and have a 2-1-1 record in the postseason. This will be their first-ever appearance in the Liberty Bowl, which is located in Memphis, four hours from the school’s home in Nashville.

UC and Vandy have two common opponents in Connecticut and Tennessee. The Commodores beat UConn 24-21 and lost to the Volunteers in overtime, 27-21. The Bearcats beat UConn 35-27 and lost to the Vols 45-23.

Pat Summitt plans on coaching for a long time eventhough she was diagnosed recently with an early onset of dementia.

In a statement released by the University of Tennessee from Summitt on Tuesday, the Volunteers women’s basketball coach said that she visited with doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, after last season and was diagnosed with early onset dementia-Alzheimer’s type-over the summer months.

The 59-year-old Summitt says that she plans to rely on medication and mental exercises to manage the progressive condition that can destroy cognitive abilities over a period of time.

Summitt also said that her assistant coaches Holly Warlick, Dean Lockwood and Mickie DeMoss will be taking on more responsibilities with the team from this point forward.

A 2000 inductee to the National Basketball Hall of Fame, Summitt has a very impressive coaching record of 1,071 wins-199 losses, a winning percentage of 84.33 percent.

Tennessee has fired Bruce Pearl after a season in which the head basketball coach was charged with unethical conduct for lying to NCAA investigators during a probe into his recruiting of prospects.

The Volunteers’ athletic program has agreed to pay Pearl $948,728 worth of salary and benefits as part of his dismissal agreement.

The 51-year-old Pearl, who coached Tennessee for six seasons, acknowledged at a tearful September 10 press conference that he had given investigators false information when asked about a cookout at his home which was attended by high-school juniors.

The Volunteers finished this season at 19-15, losing in the NCAA Tournament’s West Region in Charlotte, North Carolina to Michigan 75-45.

Oakland University is a mid-major Division I university located between Auburn Hills and Rochester, Michigan between Detroit. It has 18,553 students.

The Golden Grizzlies play teams like Tennessee, Dayton, Cincinnati, Butler and other big-time schools to make money to fund their basketball program. They figure that they’ll lose but sometimes they pull an upset.

The school, a member of the Summit League, pulled a nice upset against Tennessee.

Keith Benson had 26 points and 10 rebounds as Oakland beat the seventh-ranked Volunteers 89-82, three days after losing to Michigan State by a point. The Spartans were ranked in the top 10 as well.

The loss was only the second time that Tennessee, now 7-1, has lost on their home court to a non-conference team in Bruce Pearl’s six seasons.

The Volunteers led 76-68 with 7:18 to play in the game. But the physical play inside by the Vols drew several fouls down the stretch as the Golden Grizzlies used to their advantage to get back in the game. They had a 13-0 run of mostly from free throw shooting to take an 81-76 lead that it never lost.

Tennessee missed four free throws and several three-point attempts down the stretch.

Oakland is now 6-5 on the season.
