Happy Birthday to 1270TheTeam Host Jeff Cameron.  Good show.

Rivals.com College Football - FSU's Jones comes to grips with poor spring game  RB Ty Jones had a bad spring game fumbling 412 times. He's been putting in extra work. His thumb is healed up (ligament). He's up to 205 lbs (needs to be at 215) and is better managing his diabetes by taking his medication (excellent) and planning his meals. He's better able to complete his early morning weight training sessions now.

Breakfast with Leavitt (USF): News and notes ...
-- Starting defense? In a quick position-by-position rundown, Leavitt named former starting defensive tackle Aaron Harris as a starting defensive end opposite George Selvie, with Terrell McClain and Cory Grissom at tackle. He said he'll have three seniors starting at linebacker, which points to Chris Robinson at strongside, but he mentioned Sabbath Joseph (a junior) first on the weakside. He also mentioned Donte Spires (a senior), Jaquian Williams and Sam Barrington, so don't get too excited there. Only three defensive backs he mentioned, curiously, were Nate Allen, Jerrell Young and Kayvon Webster.

-- Offensive line? Some interesting stuff here: He introduced Redshirt Freshman Mark Popek as his starting right tackle. He named Jake Sims as the starting center, made a reference to a 6-3, 330-pound right guard (I think that's Zach Hermann), named Sampson Genus at left guard and said left tackle would likely be Jamar Bass or Jeremiah Warren, who we hear did very well this spring academically. He'd mentioned tackle Carlos Savala earlier in the speech, so don't rule him out. "The offensive line is going to be the key," Leavitt said.

DT Thornton not admitted, released from USF   Defensive tackle Khyri Thornton, who signed with the Bulls in February, said Wednesday that he was not accepted by an academic committee that reviews incoming athletes at USF and has been granted a release from his scholarship.
