  • Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez wants to see more facts before ruling on the status of jailed running back Kevin Grady, Mark Snyder writes in the Detroit Free Press. Wolverines offensive lineman Kurt Wermers has left the team, and more players could follow, John Heuser writes in The Ann Arbor News.

  • Despite being relegated to a backup role behind Terrelle Pryor, Joe Bauserman has no regrets about his path to this point or sticking with the Buckeyes, Tim May writes in The Columbus Dispatch.

  • New Illinois offensive coordinator Mike Schultz is still figuring out where to live in Champaign, but he's doing what he does best these days -- recruit the state of Texas, Bob Asmussen writes in The (Champaign) News-Gazette.

  • The fine Ohio State blog Eleven Warriors has a nice preview of Big Ten meetings, which take place this week in Chicago and will be highlighted by Joe Paterno's continued push for expansion.
