Of Penn State's four new starters who earned jobs in the spring, only senior Robert Price has started, and that came in last season's opener against South Florida because Tyler Reed was being disciplined. The inexperience factor is why Penn State coach Joe Paterno has identified the offensive line as his biggest concern heading into the season.

Linebacker Jon Demps has become the latest casualty as injuries pile up for Florida. Demps, a sophomore, could redshirt after Florida discovered Wednesday that he sustained a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament in one of his knees. It is the same injury that caused Demps to miss most of last season.

Walk-on tight end Brady Conrad earned a football scholarship at Arizona State in eight months. Next he might be starting, due to the sudden health uncertainty of junior H-back Brent Miller.

Pierre Thomas and E.B. Halsey probably will retain their jobs returning kickoffs and punts this season, but Illinois coach Ron Zook said he is looking at alternatives during camp.
