* Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone said that while Ryan Nassib will still be listed as his team's starting quarterback, Greg Paulus will get a fair chance to compete for the job. Considering that Paulus choosing the Orange generated the most attention for that program since someone chiseled Nike sneakers on the Ernie Davis statue, that's probably a smart move.

* LSU, like most colleges in America, is facing severe budget cuts and is considering weeklong furloughs of its employees to make ends meet. This furlough program could include head football coach Les Miles. There's no truth to the rumor that Miles has elected to take his unpaid furlough the week of the Florida game.

* Speaking of Florida, their talented but relatively unheralded quarterback Tim Tebow has been named one of the "25 Fittest Guys in the World" by Men's Fitness. In a related story, Thom Brenneman just subscribed to Men's Fitness.
