2009 Off-Season Roundup
The News Stories You Need To Know ... May 19
* Urban Meyer has responded to Steve Spurrier's
comments that he may still consider leaving for Notre Dame: "I didn't
know what (Spurrier) was getting at. Here's a quote for you - I am not

full-time employees in its compliance office, one of the smaller numbers
of any BCS school. That's how you know they're not a legitimate
two-sport BCS power just yet: they're only in trouble for one of them.
