The article presents information on developments related to college football in the U.S. Blue-chip QB Pat Devlin's switch from Miami University to Penn State highlights a disturbing trend for the team: Miami is having problems recruiting elite quarterbacks. It appears that Iowa State RB Stevie Hicks won't need surgery to repair the ankle injury or groin injury that nagged him in 2005. Coordinator Frank Cignetti left Fresno State for North Carolina and signed a three-year deal. California's QB Nate Longshore--the starter before suffering a season-ending injury in Week 1--might leave school for his Mormon mission, which also was a concern last spring.
