UB senior takes long road to college

---UB senior safety John Sanders has been willing to go just about anywhere for the chance to play football.

---There are few answers in regards to the death of a Notre Dame student manager, who lost his life when a gust of wind toppled a video tower where he was filming practice. The incident is under investigation.

---The Big East knows it needs to do something. With expansion and realignment in the Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-10, and Mountain West, the Big East needs to move from its eight-team football family concept, and do it quickly.

---The biggest red flag that causes ADs to reach for the pink slip is the players quitting on the coach. As Colorado coach Dan Hawkins trudges toward what's expected to be his eventual firing, the biggest question becomes: When?

---Tony Dungy, a QB at Minnesota in the 1970s, has agreed to advise AD Joel Maturi as he considers replacements for Tim Brewster, a role that should ensure that minority candidates receive serious consideration. One name to keep in mind is Miami's Randy Shannon.

---Here are some coaches on the rise.
