Using his Twitter account as a microphone, Robinson announced that, “with a lot of prayer and support,” he has decided to continue his playing career at Texas Tech.  The wide receiver had spent the 2016 season at a junior college, thus making him eligible to play immediately in 2017.

In other words — the Pac-12 make less from its conference channels and from its other TV contracts, too.

NCAA considering changing transfer rulesNBC Sports: CollegeFootballTalkThe NCAA’s Division I Council Transfer Working Group on Wednesday unleashed a set of suggestions that could either radically change or slightly tweak the way transfers are handled in college sports’ highest level. Establishing uniform transfer rules — which would require everyone to follow the same rules regardless of the sport they play — was a topic that the group agrees will likely take longer to resolve. Members discussed two models: One model would require every transfer student to sit out a year to acclimate to a new school; the other would allow all transfers to play immediately provided they present academic credentials that predict graduation at the new institution. Walking back from that, the working group did recommend changing the transfer process to where players seeking new destinations would no longer need their former school’s approval.article

NC State’s football recruiting class up to No. 32 nationallyBacking The PackAfter the surge of commitments this month, NC State’s 2018 recruiting class has made a big move up the national rankings. Coming into June, State’s class was ranked outside the top 50 in the 247Sports composite rankings. The class is now ranked 32nd. The Wolfpack has added more than a half dozen verbal commitments in June, in the process picking up a number of guys who were sought after by a bunch of other power-conference schools. It had been a pretty slow spring for Dave Doeren and staff but that changed quickly. Camp season (that’s June) can do that. With the additions they’ve made, State’s ranks seventh in the ACC, lagging behind the usual suspects, like Florida State, Clemson, and Miami.article

How another 8-win season at Texas A&M in 2017 could actually be Kevin Sumlin's best performanceSportsDayWhat's the vibe at A&M as far as how the team is feeling heading into the fall? I think everyone knows that A&M essentially needs to make strides. When they came into the SEC -- the Johnny Manziel years, Kevin Sumlin's first years -- they did incredibly well. What's been frustrating is they did so well and they've never been able to get back to that point where you're hitting a double-digit win total. They've been steady at eight the last few years. I think people are growing restless. It's also worth noting that the levels they're at now, it's not something that they've had recently. Historically, it hasn't been something A&M has been able to attain when you go back over the past 10-12 years.article

The University announced today that beer sales at Joan C. Edwards Stadium have been approved by the Board of Governors starting this fall.

Last year, the school began expanding the sale of alcoholic beverages such as beer and wine from the Big Green Room to chairback seating. Now, the majority of fans attending a football game in Huntington will be able to purchase alcohol.

Maryland has experience at TE, but it’s unclear how they’ll fit into the offenseTestudo TimesWhen Walt Bell took over as Maryland’s offensive coordinator prior to the 2016 season, there were a handful of questions surrounding how certain parts of his scheme would affect members of the roster. Tight ends are always in an interesting spot when this happens, as a change in system can shift the entire group’s identity. The position was certainly utilized last season, but hardly as a receiving threat. Five tight ends caught a combined six passes, including one touchdown, in 2016. That’s down from 18 catches in 2015, but on par with the six receptions from 2014. Maryland’s tight ends Note: Andrew Isaacs has switched from tight end to defensive line, per the team’s roster page.

Twin Michigan commits German, Gemon Green from Texas bound togetherDetroit Free PressMichigan enjoyed a flurry of commitments in April, when four players committed for the 2018 class. The final two of the month, twins German and Gemon Green, made a simultaneous decision April 20, which didn’t surprise Todd Peterman, their coach at DeSoto (Texas) High. “I knew at the end of the day they were going to be at the same school,” Peterman said. “I told a couple colleges they’re going to be at the same school. They can tell you whatever they want to tell you, but I’m telling you they’re going to be at the same school.

Pick 6: Transfer quarterbacks who could make a big impactABC NewsFlorida might have solved its long-running quarterback problem with the addition of Notre Dame transfer Malik Zaire. That move became official last week, and as a graduate transfer, Zaire will be immediately eligible. Zaire is no lock to be the Gators starter when they open against Michigan in Arlington, Texas, at the home of the Dallas Cowboys. Of course, if coach Jim McElwain and the Gators really felt good about redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks, then Zaire probably would not be going to school in Gainesville. Florida is one of several schools likely turning to a transfer quarterback this season to lead their teams. Six that will be drawing lots of attention in 2017. Kyle Allen, Houston Allenarticle

Scott D. Pierce: Outgoing P12 Network president admits it's lagging behind SEC, Big TenThe Salt Lake TribuneThat's true. The league has contracts with Fox and ESPN. But that's also true for SEC and Big Ten, which have their own channels as well as deals with CBS and ESPN (SEC) and Fox and ESPN (Big Ten). In other words — the Pac-12 make less from its conference channels and from its other TV contracts, too. Murphy-Stephans sounded a bit defensive when she said, "I understand there is frustration, though no athletic director or administrator was ever told the Pac-12 Networks would deliver the same or more revenue than what its peer conferences are currently getting from their networks."

NCAA considering changing transfer rulesNBC Sports: CollegeFootballTalkThe NCAA’s Division I Council Transfer Working Group on Wednesday unleashed a set of suggestions that could either radically change or slightly tweak the way transfers are handled in college sports’ highest level. Establishing uniform transfer rules — which would require everyone to follow the same rules regardless of the sport they play — was a topic that the group agrees will likely take longer to resolve. Members discussed two models: One model would require every transfer student to sit out a year to acclimate to a new school; the other would allow all transfers to play immediately provided they present academic credentials that predict graduation at the new institution. Walking back from that, the working group did recommend changing the transfer process to where players seeking new destinations would no longer need their former school’s approval.article

NC State’s football recruiting class up to No. 32 nationallyBacking The PackAfter the surge of commitments this month, NC State’s 2018 recruiting class has made a big move up the national rankings. Coming into June, State’s class was ranked outside the top 50 in the 247Sports composite rankings. The class is now ranked 32nd. The Wolfpack has added more than a half dozen verbal commitments in June, in the process picking up a number of guys who were sought after by a bunch of other power-conference schools. It had been a pretty slow spring for Dave Doeren and staff but that changed quickly. Camp season (that’s June) can do that. With the additions they’ve made, State’s ranks seventh in the ACC, lagging behind the usual suspects, like Florida State, Clemson, and Miami.article

How another 8-win season at Texas A&M in 2017 could actually be Kevin Sumlin's best performanceSportsDayWhat's the vibe at A&M as far as how the team is feeling heading into the fall? I think everyone knows that A&M essentially needs to make strides. When they came into the SEC -- the Johnny Manziel years, Kevin Sumlin's first years -- they did incredibly well. What's been frustrating is they did so well and they've never been able to get back to that point where you're hitting a double-digit win total. They've been steady at eight the last few years. I think people are growing restless. It's also worth noting that the levels they're at now, it's not something that they've had recently. Historically, it hasn't been something A&M has been able to attain when you go back over the past 10-12 years.article

Of course, if coach Jim McElwain and the Gators really felt good about redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks, then Zaire probably would not be going to school in Gainesville.

At first glance, the tantalizing statements by former Huskers coach Tom Osborne to Land of 10 could be passed off as stream of consciousness from a wisened icon. Osborne said he knows "people" he has talked to "in the past" who "maybe have some interest" in the Big Ten "as a viable option." Well, duh.

NCAA considering changing transfer rulesNBC Sports: CollegeFootballTalkThe NCAA’s Division I Council Transfer Working Group on Wednesday unleashed a set of suggestions that could either radically change or slightly tweak the way transfers are handled in college sports’ highest level. Establishing uniform transfer rules — which would require everyone to follow the same rules regardless of the sport they play — was a topic that the group agrees will likely take longer to resolve. Members discussed two models: One model would require every transfer student to sit out a year to acclimate to a new school; the other would allow all transfers to play immediately provided they present academic credentials that predict graduation at the new institution. Walking back from that, the working group did recommend changing the transfer process to where players seeking new destinations would no longer need their former school’s approval.article

Coming into June, State’s class was ranked outside the top 50 in the 247Sports composite rankings. The class is now ranked 32nd. The Wolfpack has added more than a half dozen verbal commitments in June, in the process picking up a number of guys who were sought after by a bunch of other power-conference schools. It had been a pretty slow spring for Dave Doeren and staff but that changed quickly. Camp season (that’s June) can do that.

How another 8-win season at Texas A&M in 2017 could actually be Kevin Sumlin's best performanceSportsDayWhat's the vibe at A&M as far as how the team is feeling heading into the fall? I think everyone knows that A&M essentially needs to make strides. When they came into the SEC -- the Johnny Manziel years, Kevin Sumlin's first years -- they did incredibly well. What's been frustrating is they did so well and they've never been able to get back to that point where you're hitting a double-digit win total. They've been steady at eight the last few years. I think people are growing restless. It's also worth noting that the levels they're at now, it's not something that they've had recently. Historically, it hasn't been something A&M has been able to attain when you go back over the past 10-12 years.article

I think people are growing restless. It's also worth noting that the levels they're at now, it's not something that they've had recently. Historically, it hasn't been something A&M has been able to attain when you go back over the past 10-12 years.

Two months after the season, Maryland extended Bresee his first scholarship offer. He didn’t expect what happened next. “It was quiet at first and then it just hit me all of a sudden,” he said.

Maryland has experience at TE, but it’s unclear how they’ll fit into the offenseTestudo TimesWhen Walt Bell took over as Maryland’s offensive coordinator prior to the 2016 season, there were a handful of questions surrounding how certain parts of his scheme would affect members of the roster. Tight ends are always in an interesting spot when this happens, as a change in system can shift the entire group’s identity. The position was certainly utilized last season, but hardly as a receiving threat. Five tight ends caught a combined six passes, including one touchdown, in 2016. That’s down from 18 catches in 2015, but on par with the six receptions from 2014. Maryland’s tight ends Note: Andrew Isaacs has switched from tight end to defensive line, per the team’s roster page.

Pick 6: Transfer quarterbacks who could make a big impactABC NewsFlorida might have solved its long-running quarterback problem with the addition of Notre Dame transfer Malik Zaire. That move became official last week, and as a graduate transfer, Zaire will be immediately eligible. Zaire is no lock to be the Gators starter when they open against Michigan in Arlington, Texas, at the home of the Dallas Cowboys. Of course, if coach Jim McElwain and the Gators really felt good about redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks, then Zaire probably would not be going to school in Gainesville. Florida is one of several schools likely turning to a transfer quarterback this season to lead their teams. Six that will be drawing lots of attention in 2017. Kyle Allen, Houston Allenarticle

Texas Tech gets commitment from ex-Arkansas WR Jojo RobinsonNBC Sports: CollegeFootballTalkJoJo Robinson‘s winding college football road will apparently take him next to Lubbock. Using his Twitter account as a microphone, Robinson announced that, “with a lot of prayer and support,” he has decided to continue his playing career at Texas Tech.  The wide receiver had spent the 2016 season at a junior college, thus making him eligible to play immediately in 2017. Including this season, Robinson will have two years of eligibility remaining. Originally a Florida State verbal, Robinson ultimately flipped to Arkansas to become a four-star member of the Razorbacks’ 2014 recruiting class. He was suspended for one game his first season in Fayetteville after he was arrested for armed robbery afterarticle

Scott D. Pierce: Outgoing P12 Network president admits it's lagging behind SEC, Big TenThe Salt Lake TribuneThat's true. The league has contracts with Fox and ESPN.

In other words — the Pac-12 make less from its conference channels and from its other TV contracts, too.

NCAA considering changing transfer rulesNBC Sports: CollegeFootballTalkThe NCAA’s Division I Council Transfer Working Group on Wednesday unleashed a set of suggestions that could either radically change or slightly tweak the way transfers are handled in college sports’ highest level. Establishing uniform transfer rules — which would require everyone to follow the same rules regardless of the sport they play — was a topic that the group agrees will likely take longer to resolve. Members discussed two models: One model would require every transfer student to sit out a year to acclimate to a new school; the other would allow all transfers to play immediately provided they present academic credentials that predict graduation at the new institution. Walking back from that, the working group did recommend changing the transfer process to where players seeking new destinations would no longer need their former school’s approval.article

NC State’s football recruiting class up to No. 32 nationallyBacking The PackAfter the surge of commitments this month, NC State’s 2018 recruiting class has made a big move up the national rankings. Coming into June, State’s class was ranked outside the top 50 in the 247Sports composite rankings. The class is now ranked 32nd. The Wolfpack has added more than a half dozen verbal commitments in June, in the process picking up a number of guys who were sought after by a bunch of other power-conference schools. It had been a pretty slow spring for Dave Doeren and staff but that changed quickly. Camp season (that’s June) can do that. With the additions they’ve made, State’s ranks seventh in the ACC, lagging behind the usual suspects, like Florida State, Clemson, and Miami.article

How another 8-win season at Texas A&M in 2017 could actually be Kevin Sumlin's best performanceSportsDayWhat's the vibe at A&M as far as how the team is feeling heading into the fall? I think everyone knows that A&M essentially needs to make strides. When they came into the SEC -- the Johnny Manziel years, Kevin Sumlin's first years -- they did incredibly well. What's been frustrating is they did so well and they've never been able to get back to that point where you're hitting a double-digit win total. They've been steady at eight the last few years. I think people are growing restless. It's also worth noting that the levels they're at now, it's not something that they've had recently. Historically, it hasn't been something A&M has been able to attain when you go back over the past 10-12 years.article

The position was certainly utilized last season, but hardly as a receiving threat. Five tight ends caught a combined six passes, including one touchdown, in 2016.

Pick 6: Transfer quarterbacks who could make a big impactABC NewsFlorida might have solved its long-running quarterback problem with the addition of Notre Dame transfer Malik Zaire. That move became official last week, and as a graduate transfer, Zaire will be immediately eligible. Zaire is no lock to be the Gators starter when they open against Michigan in Arlington, Texas, at the home of the Dallas Cowboys. Of course, if coach Jim McElwain and the Gators really felt good about redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks, then Zaire probably would not be going to school in Gainesville. Florida is one of several schools likely turning to a transfer quarterback this season to lead their teams. Six that will be drawing lots of attention in 2017. Kyle Allen, Houston Allenarticle

Zaire is no lock to be the Gators starter when they open against Michigan in Arlington, Texas, at the home of the Dallas Cowboys. Of course, if coach Jim McElwain and the Gators really felt good about redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks, then Zaire probably would not be going to school in Gainesville. Florida is one of several schools likely turning to a transfer quarterback this season to lead their teams. Six that will be drawing lots of attention in 2017. Kyle Allen, Houston Allen

Inside College Football: Realignment may not be an active topic, but it's out thereCBS SportsThere were a couple of significant developments in conference realignment you missed last week. If you saw the news at Nebraska Cornhuskers and Kansas Jayhawks , you probably didn't even make the connection. At first glance, the tantalizing statements by former Huskers coach Tom Osborne to Land of 10 could be passed off as stream of consciousness from a wisened icon. Osborne said he knows "people" he has talked to "in the past" who "maybe have some interest" in the Big Ten "as a viable option." Well, duh. I can think of about 50 schools right off the bat that might be interested. Don't forget, Nebraska got the whole realignment ball rolling eight years ago because of its nervousness about thearticle
