Miss something that happened on Dr. Saturday’s social media presence? Well, we’ve got your roundup right here. Don’t let this happen again. Always be in the know by following Dr. Saturday on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr.
The signing of five-star Georgia athlete Demetris Robertson was a big deal for Cal. Stuff like this 63-inch box jump shows you why. He should make an instant impact this fall.
Penn State tight end Nick Bowers showed that big guys can be great athletes too. Bowers, a redshirt freshman, is listed at 6-foot-4 and 265 pounds. Still, he leaps over teammate Tyler Shoop with ease. Impressive.

Steve Spurrier as a commentator? It could happen.
Spurrier told The State that he expects to meet with the SEC Network “in the next month.” This is not a drill.
“We have tentatively discussed getting together to talk,” the former South Carolina coach said Monday, “but I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet but hope to do something constructive and productive. I have seen people who don’t do anything and that doesn’t work. Hopefully, I will get involved in something here in about a month or so.”
Spurrier made a guest appearance on ESPN’s College Gameday soon after announcing his resignation and recently held down a two-hour spot on the Paul Finebaum Show, so he is certainly familiar with the network. ESPN declined to confirm if a meeting was scheduled when reached by The State.

Connor Mitch will continue his career at the FCS level.
Mitch, the former South Carolina quarterback, announced Monday that he will transfer to James Madison University. Mitch, who recently graduated from USC, will have two seasons of eligibility remaining for the Dukes.
Mitch entered the 2015 season as South Carolina’s starting quarterback, but ended up missing most of the season because of a variety of injuries, including a separated shoulder and a hip infection that forced hospitalization. He saw action in only two games in 2015, completing 13-of-29 passes for 165 yards and one touchdown. He also rushed for 51 yards and a score.

The team saw the new uniforms for the first time Monday morning. It looks like they were pretty excited.

Notre Dame wide receiver Torii Hunter Jr. signed a professional contract over the weekend. But don’t worry, Irish fans, the senior will still suit up for the blue and gold this fall.
Hunter Jr., the son of five-time MLB all-star and nine-time Gold Glove winner Torii Hunter, was selected in 23rd round of the MLB draft by the Los Angeles Angels a few weeks ago. On Saturday, the younger Hunter signed a contract with the club.LiveHouston2 - 2LA AngelsFollow Game

Quarterback play is always under the microscope for every college football team. This position is the toughest to evaluate, develop and project for upcoming seasons. Finding a new starter or replacing a departing senior comes easy for some teams.
While all teams would prefer to develop a quarterback pipeline through the recruiting ranks, a transfer from another program could be the right fit as the new starter. Whether it’s a one-year stopgap solution or a player that could develop into a multi-year starter, transfers can have an immediate impact for any program. It’s no secret transfers are a huge part of any offseason and can help the coaching staff bridge the gap to the next prospect or fill a void after a player didn’t develop as expected.
The transfer carousel featured some big movement in the quarterback ranks this offseason. Here’s a look at the top 30 transfers - ranked by expected impact - at quarterback for the 2016 season:

A social media nightmare became a reality for the SEC.
On Saturday morning, the SEC’s official Twitter account posted inappropriate photos of scantily clad women in two separate tweets. The tweets, which were sent out to the account’s 325,000 followers, were up only briefly before being deleted.
(You can see the NSFW images here, if interested)
Soon after the posts were deleted, commissioner Greg Sankey apologized and the conference later said its account was hacked .
Today an unknown/unauthorized individual accessed @SEC twitter. We apologize for any concern or confusion this caused.
The SEC Twitter account has been hacked. Our staff is working to correct the problem. Apologies for any concern or confusion this caused.
