Hope everyone had a nice weekend. Let's catch up on what happened with these links ...
- Still no decision on the UConn quarterback battle. The Huskies get a commitment from quarterback Casey Cochran, the reigning Connecticut state player of the year. A touching tribute to New Haven Register columnist Dave Solomon, who died tragically in a car accident on his way home from a UConn football assignment.
- Louisville running back Victor Anderson hopes his senior year matches his freshman year. Teddy Bridgewater had to leave the final open practice of the fall with a sore shoulder. Greg Scruggs documents the travel delays that plagued his teammates en route to Big East media day. Worth the time if you've got it.
- Cincinnati landed three commitments from Michigan. The Bearcats are looking for a rebound as they open camp today.
- Pitt opens camp today. For the Panthers, it's Big East or bust.
- The quintessential Dana Holgorsen stat. Ryan Nehlen wants to continue what he started in the spring.
- Frank Cignetti is bringing an offense to Rutgers that is similar to what Mike McCarthy runs with the Green Bay Packers. Running back Jawan Jamison is out for seven to 10 days with a hamstring injury, which could put him at a disadvantage in the competition to start. Freshman quarterback Gary Nova is making a smooth transition.
- Syracuse running backs Prince-Tyson Gulley and Steven Rene will be able to practice in about a week. Impressions from Day 3 of practice.
- USF running back Dontae Aycock and defensive end Brandon Wilkinson have left the football program. Ohio State transfer receiver James Louis has USF on his short list.
