On Sept. 15, coaches from NC State, Georgia and Florida State, among others, were on the sidelines at Harding High in Charlotte to watch the Rams host state power and city-rival Mallard Creek High. Mallard Creek would prevail 30-9 over Harding, but the game was closer than that as Harding actually controlled the action for most of the three quarters before a series of turnovers doomed its chances. NC State head coach Dave Doeren and tight ends/fullbacks coach and special teams coordinator Eddie Faulkner were there to watch four-star lineman Jordan Davis from Mallard Creek and four-star junior running back Quavaris Crouch, four-star offensive lineman Jovaughn Gwyn and three-star defensive back Malik Dunlap from Harding, among likely others.
For his part, Penn State head coach James Franklin isn’t doing anything to tamp down that excitement level among his Nittany Lions this week. Meeting with reporters Tuesday afternoon at Beaver Stadium for his weekly press conference, Franklin acknowledged the tremendous respect that his program has for Michigan and the opportunity that Saturday night’s game brings with it. Wanting to embrace that feeling while maintaining the same steady approach to the Nittany Lions’ preparations this week, Franklin has his players and staff concentrating not on reflections of last year, the hype surrounding the game, or anything else beyond the immediate task at hand. There's lessons that we learned from last year,” Franklin said, responding to a question about the impact of his team’s 49-10 loss in Ann Arbor, Mich., last season and it's potential effects on this year's game.

When a head coach leaves a college football team, it has a real effect on recruiting as it leaves the program in a state of uncertainty. The recruits committed to that school are left wondering if the interim coach and his staff will be kept in place or if a new coach will come in and clean house. There's also uncertainty for the staff in place. How do you recruit prospects to a school if you're not even sure that you're going to be there in a couple of months because of the head coaching change? For the Oregon State Beavers, it's just business as usual with Gary Andersen leaving OSU and Cory Hall being his interim
A borderline Rivals four-star wide receiver prospect traveled to Ames last weekend for the second official visit of his recruiting process. South Fort Myers senior Jeshaun Jones said he liked attending a game at Jack Trice Stadium and many other aspects of his official visit. The 6-foot-1, 170-pound Jones, a three-star wide receiver with a 5.7 Rivals rating, was taking his second official visit of the process, after traveling to Tennessee last month. He’s also planning a stop at Maryland next month. In addition to those three schools, Jones has Power-5 offers from Arkansas, Florida State, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, North Carolina, NC State, Rutgers. Virginia Tech and Wisconsin. Freshman wide
Against South Carolina, Gaulden allowed just two receptions for four yards, earning a shoutout from Pro Football Focus. On the year, the redshirt sophomore has yielded just a single completion over 10 yards, per College Football Film Room. “He’s playing at a really high level for us,” Warren said.“We are going to need to lean on his and others’ leadership in our style of play down the stretch. He’s having a very productive year. As a whole unit, we have to make more plays and get more takeaways.” Tennessee has forced just six turnovers in six games this season, but Gaulden has had a hand in two game-changing takeaways. He forced a fumble deep in UT’s territory in the win over Georgia Tech, jumpstarting
Question: If you had to pick a midseason Big 12 coach of the year, who would you go with? Carlton: In order, I would go: 1. Gary Patterson. 2. Matt Campbell. 3. Kliff Kingsbury. Patterson has rebounded from a 6-7 season to have the nation's fourth-ranked team as we speak. So far, he's corrected the problems on offense with quarterback consistency and red-zone struggles while building the No. 1 defense in the conference. Question: With the teams trending in different directions, could Tech be in danger of losing to the Cyclones? Would that be enough to place Kingsbury back on the hot seat? Carlton: Has hot seat become the most over-used phrase this season? Sure seems like it. Every game is big.
