This Wouldn't Happen at Elvis' Graceland

Most people have never heard of Graceland University. It's located in Lamoni, Iowa, and its best known alum is a guy named Bruce Jenner, who eventually gave up football for track and field and won the gold medal in the decathlon at the 1976 Olympics. But there are big problems these days at Graceland. Police have issued a warrant for Leonard Smith, an assistant football coach. Smith is suspected of stealing a car belonging to head coach Cris Welch and a player's credit card. Police determined that the missing credit card had been used at a Wal-Mart in Bethany, Mo., reviewed a videotape of the transaction and determined it was Smith who was using the card. "I feel it's unfortunate, but I really don't have anything to say about it," Welch said. The Yellowjackets, by the way, are 6-3 and ranked No. 21 in NAIA entering Saturday's game in Olathe, Kan., against dreaded Mid-America Nazarene.
