Cougars' RB Tardy out for season with knee injury
November 1st, 2007

Spokane, WA (Sports Network) - Washington State running back Dwight Tardy will reportedly miss the rest of the season after injuring his left knee last Saturday against UCLA.

According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Washington State head coach Bill Doba said Tardy's injury will require surgery. The injury occurred when Tardy broke free for a 51-yard touchdown run in the final minute of the Cougars' 27-7 win over the Bruins.

Tardy, a junior, ran for a career-best 214 yards and two touchdowns in the win. Tardy has carried 143 times for 676 yards this season for the Cougars.

Doba also said backup senior Kevin McCall will start Saturday at California.

Booty to start at quarterback for Trojans on Saturday
ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES -- John David Booty has his job back.

Booty will start at quarterback Saturday night when the 15th-ranked Trojans face Oregon State. He sat out three games because of a broken middle finger on his throwing hand and was replaced by Mark Sanchez.

''We're going with John David,'' USC coach Pete Carroll said after practice Thursday. ''It's clear he had a good, solid week. He's good to go, he's ready to play, he's had a couple of weeks off. We look for him to jump back where he left off. Mark also is ready to go.''

Booty broke his finger when he hit it on a helmet in the second quarter against Stanford on Oct. 6. The fifth-year senior played on, and threw four interceptions in the second half as the 41-point underdog Cardinal rallied to upset the Trojans 24-23.

Sanchez, making the first three starts of his career, passed for 130 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in a 20-13 victory over Arizona, 235 yards and four TDs with no interceptions in a 38-0 win at Notre Dame and 277 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions in a 24-17 loss at No. 4 Oregon on Saturday.

Carroll said the status of left tackle Sam Baker, who has an injured hamstring, is uncertain for Saturday night's game.

''Sam Baker took some snaps yesterday and today,'' Carroll said. ''He wants to try to play, but we'll see what happens on Saturday. We're planning on Butch Lewis starting until something changes.''

Oregon State (5-3, 3-2) brings a three-game winning streak at the Los Angeles Coliseum. The Beavers beat the Trojans 33-31 last season in Corvallis, Ore., to snap USC's 27-game Pac-10 winning streak.

The Trojans (6-2, 3-2) are 20-0 in November games since Carroll became their coach before the 2001 season.

Tennessee dismisses tailback LaMarcus Coker
November 2, 2007

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Tennessee has dismissed sophomore tailback LaMarcus Coker for undisclosed reasons.

Coach Phillip Fulmer had suspended Coker from one game for a violation of team rules, but said after further investigation he decided to dismiss the player.

Fulmer said Coker did not do was what asked of him and he wanted a positive environment for No. 24 Tennessee.

Coker was suspended for almost three weeks of practice in August for what team officials described as a medical issue. He was also suspended for several practices last December before the Outback Bowl for undisclosed reasons.

Coker was a kick returner and a No. 2 tailback behind Arian Foster.
