VOLLEYBALL | So this isn't good. One of the better volleyball players from last year, Emily Ehrle, is transferring to LSU. The volleyball team is in Hawaii this week, so there's that.

ESPN's David Ubben wrote about if QB Michael Brewer is primed for a break-out year and apparently was voted as such by the readers of his blog. I forgot to link to it the other day, but congrats to Louis Vasquez for signing with the Denver Broncos, along with Wes Welker (Denver Post). The Boston Herald has a bit on Danny Amendola and Welker, with quotes from Mike Leach about both of them. Texas Football's Greg Tepper is counting down the top 50 best college players and WR Eric Ward is #33 on the list.
