Ohio State senior football player missing

Associated Press

An Ohio State football player has been reported missing, The Columbus Dispatch reported Thursday.

Kosta Karageorge, a senior defensive tackle who also was a member of the wrestling team, was last seen at his apartment at 2 a.m. Wednesday, when he went to take a walk, according to his sister.

He missed practice the last two days. He is scheduled to be one of 24 seniors recognized before Saturday's home game against Michigan.

Columbus police confirmed they are looking for Karageorge but had no comment for the Dispatch.

Georgia tailback Todd Gurley underwent ACL reconstruction on Tuesday.

"He's doing very well," coach Mark Richt said.

... Clemson coach Dabo Swinney won't ever forget the ugly brawl with South Carolina 10 years ago — or fearing for Gamecocks coach Lou Holtz in the middle of it.

Swinney, then the Tigers receivers coach, rushed on the field to separate players after the fight broke out late in Clemson's 29-7 victory in 2004. While grabbing anyone he could, Swinney saw Holtz on the ground clinging to a players' leg — and worried the Hall of Famer coaching his final game might get seriously hurt in the scrum.

"It was an embarrassing chapter for both schools," Tommy Bowden, the Tigers head coach at the time, said this week.

A decade later, the fight between the longtime state rivals remains horrifying for anyone who watched or took part — a low point in an intense rivalry.

... Nebraska coach BoPelini's status is again a hot topic ahead of today's game at Iowa. But a two-game slide has left the Cornhuskers (8-3, 4-3 Big Ten) in danger of their sixth straight four-loss campaign.

A bad showing in Iowa City could spell the end for Pelini.

"I think the last two weeks we didn't play very well," Pelini said.
