College football notebook: Southern Cal CB Shaw to make season debut against rival UCLA

• Cornerback Josh Shaw will play for Southern Cal in its rivalry showdown against UCLA, although his role hasn’t been determined. USC coach Steve Sarkisian confirms Shaw will make his season debut Saturday night at the Rose Bowl.Shaw served a 10-game suspension for lying to the school about how he sprained both of his ankles shortly before the season began. The former team captain was reinstated earlier this week after authorities determined no criminal charges would be filed against him.

• Nicholls State hired Louisiana-Lafayette assistant Tim Rebowe as its new coach. Rebowe has been an assistant with the Ragin’ Cajuns for 11 seasons and was a Nicholls assistant for six years earlier in his coaching career. Nicholls president Bruce Murphy said Rebowe “brings extensive recruiting and coaching expertise and tons of enthusiasm” to the program. The Colonels went 0-12 this season.

• Mississippi State starting safety Justin Cox has been suspended indefinitely from the program after being arrested Friday on felony aggravated domestic violence and burglary charges. The Oktibbeha County sheriff’s department confirmed that Cox was arrested about 4 a.m. Friday. He posted $20,000 bail. Cox, a 6-foot-3, 192-pound senior, has played in nine games this season.

• Former Michigan player Frank Clark‘s next hearing on domestic violence and assault charges is not scheduled and might not occur until next year. A clerk at Sandusky (Ohio) Municipal Court said a pretrial request has been submitted, but there’s no date yet. Judge Erich O’Brien said there’s a possibility Clark could have another domestic-violence charge added. Clark was charged with domestic violence and assault after being arrested Saturday at the Miami Sands hotel and waterpark in Sandusky.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
