USC backup quarterback Aaron Corp will be transferring to Richmond for his senior season. Corp was the 3rd best quarterback in the 2007 recruiting class, went to USC, had Matt Barkley follow him there, and faced the reality of riding the pine for his college career.

Rumors are swirling that the Chicago Bears are interested in Gophers' offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch:

Minnesota athletics director Joel Maturi said Wednesday that coach Tubby Smith would decide when Mbakwe would play if his case is resolved in a satisfactory manner. Maturi said Mbakwe might redshirt.
