Competition heats up at UB

Davis

 ---Sophomore Jerry Davis, who is fighting for his job, welcomes the competition at quarterback.

---Stan Parrish's seat at Ball State must be hot because they're already naming potential replacements.

---Everyone is buying into Jerry Kill's coaching methods at Northern Illinois.

---Kent State stiff arms Purdue in favor of playing Alabama.

---Antsy fans of Kansas football already dreaming of a coaching change won’t like the reality of Turner Gill’s contract. It’s as one-sided in Gill’s favor as the recent outcomes have been for KU’s opponents. Meanwhile, Gill remains relaxed about his program.

---Gene Chizik didn't know what he had in Cam Newton in spring practice and even for the first month of fall work. But how could he? The Auburn quarterback was new, and his teammates weren't allowed to tackle him. LSU's Les Miles' defense is the best in the SEC and No. 3 in the nation, but he isn't sure he knows how his team can stop Newton.

---Rutgers continues to work through a difficult week of practice, doing so with no update on the condition of defensive tackle Eric LeGrand, who remains paralyzed from the neck down. Jay Paterno writes LeGrand needs 'positive belief' to fight back as Adam Taliaferro did.

---Former Georgia great Herschel Walker expressed concern about the number of Georgia football players arrested this year, saying coach Mark Richt has “got to take control” of the issue and the players “have to take responsibility.”
