According to a report from Luke Winn of Sports Illustrated, Harvard basketball co-captain Kyle Casey is planning to withdraw from the school and is expected to miss the 2012-13 season after being implicated in an academic cheating scandal.
Several sources told Sports Illustrated that Casey, a first-team All-Ivy League forward for Harvard last season, is among a group of 125 students who "may have committed acts of academic dishonesty, ranging from inappropriate collaboration to outright plagiarism, on a take-home final exam," according to a letter from Harvard dean Jay Harris to the students at the school.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick isn't one to dwell in the past and that was his message to his team following their 34-13 victory over the Titans on Sunday.
"We talked about it after the game last night to the the entire team," Belichick said in an interview on WEEI's The Big Show. "It was great to win, it was a good start. We've won a lot of opening games around here but you don't want to win that opening game back and go to 1-1. It's a big week. Arizona's a team we don't know every well. They've got a lot of good players and had a big win yesterday against Seattle. We've got to turn the page right away and get back to it."
The Cardinals quarterback situation is up in the air after starter John Skelton suffered a low ankle sprain against the Seahawks. If he can't play, Arizona has Kevin Kolb in reserve. But the one player who concerns Belichick the most is wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.
"Both players have...
FOXBORO -- In the wake of his three-catch performance Sunday in a win over the Titans, Wes Welker didn't sound like someone who was too upset.
Welker finished with three catches on five targets for a total of 14 yards in the 34-13 win over Tennessee. It was his lowest output, yardage-wise, since the 2009 regular-season finale against the Texans -- the game where he suffered a brutal knee injury -- when he had one catch for 12 yards. (Before that, you have to go all the way back to the 2006 season when he had one catch for 11 yards in a Dolphins loss to the Jets -- his next-to-last game in a Miami uniform -- to find such an inauspicious day.)
But Welker wasn't complaining about things when he met the media Monday at Gillette Stadium.
"At the end of the day, it's about winning ballgames," Welker said Monday afternoon. "However we need to do that or whatever we need to do...

Glenn, Lou, and Christian are less than surprised that Bill Belichick won't comment further about Gronk than the released statement. Speaking of statements, how weird is it that the Gronkowski family is releasing joint statements with the Patriots?
