Michigan RB Kareem Walker may see more carries as growth continues

Kareem Walker came to Michigan as one of the highest-rated running back prospects in the class of 2016.  A one-time Ohio State commit, Walker — a New Jersey native — drew plenty of interest from fans before he ever set foot on Michigan's campus.  And while things haven't started with lightning quickness for Walker, progress is — apparently — being made.  "It was nice to see Kareem Walker get a shot and produce," Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said Saturday after the Wolverines' 27-20 win at Indiana. "(There) might be more carries for him in the future."  For the first time in his career, Walker was in the rotation Saturday against the Hoosiers. He finished with just one carry for eight yards, but

WATCH Navy coach Ken Niumatalolos heartfelt speech after loss to Memphis

Navy's perfect season is over following a 30-27 loss to Memphis. A shot a New Year's Six bowl slot to represent the Group of Five conferences just became a lot harder. Worse yet, the Midshipmen committed five turnovers in the loss, essentially beating themselves.  Showtime's "A season with Navy Football" was inside the locker room when coach Ken Niumatalolo delivered a heartfelt motivational speech about rebounding from the loss. Navy faces UCF in Week 8 on CBS Sports Network at 3:30 p.m. ET.  "We have to move on. We have a really, really good UCF team coming to our place next week. We have to find a way to get ready for them. They beat the crap out of the team we just played," Niumatalolo told

ACC a free-for-all with upsets injuries last-minute wins

Clemson has fallen, and Miami is on the rise. Upsets, last-minute victories and injuries have made it a free-for-all race for the Atlantic Coast Conference crown, and there are some unexpected contenders in the mix. No. 7 Clemson, the defending national champion, is still the highest ranked team in the conference, but the Tigers' loss at Syracuse last Friday night put No. 16 North Carolina State in the driver's seat to win the Atlantic Division. The Wolfpack (6-1, 4-0 ACC), enjoying their highest ranking since 2003, have this weekend off, but faces No. 13 Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, next weekend and hopes to still be on top when Clemson visits on Nov. 4. Coming off its big victory, Syracuse

Here’s what UM’s Malik Rosier did when Mark Richt said Rosier wouldn’t play for him

When UM coach Mark Richt summoned quarterback Malik Rosier into his office last year, a few months after getting the job, and told him, in no uncertain terms, "You won’t play for me" because of bad on-field habits and poor mechanics, Rosier had a choice: Transfer or convince his coach he can change. Rosier chose option two. "My response was doubting because you never want to hear the coach tell you that you will never play for him," Rosier said in a private moment after practice Wednesday. "But I also took it as motivation. I took it as a goal to strive to be the starting quarterback. That's why I stayed at Miami.” "He still gave me reps. He told me I could still win [the backup job behind Brad
