Since I am starting this bit in week #3, I will post a few names from previous weeks, too.
Florida DeShawn Wynn, Jr. RB, #21 vs. Tennessee. What a stutter-step for a 230 pound back!
UCLA Justin London, Sr. LB, #9, vs. OU. Appears to be quite the speed LB, who hits and covers ground.
Virginia Marques Hagans, SR. QB , #18, vs. Syracuse – (I realize he doesn’t project well to the NFL, but he is still very good).
Wisconsin Brian Calhoun, Jr. RB , #2, vs. North Carolina – (What do you know, Wisconsin has a RB).
From Week #2
Texas Jamaal Charles, FR. RB , #25, vs, Ohio State – (I knew he was good, but wow).
Ohio State Anthony Schlegel, SR, LB , #51, vs, Texas – (OSU LB’s Hawk and Carpenter are great, too; Schlegel is a Dallas guy).
From Week #1
Bowling Green Omar Jacobs, Jr. QB , #4, vs. Wisconsin
Miami Ben Olsen, SO, TE , #82, vs. Florida State
Clemson James Davis, RB, Fr , #1, vs. Texas A&M
VT Darryl Tapp, DE, SR , #55, vs. NC State
There, I don’t know if anyone likes this growing list, but at least it serves as my college football notebook to myself…

Juan Pierre makes equipment adjustment …
The grass surface at Dolphins Stadium is in such a depleted state that center fielder Juan Pierre said for the first time in his pro career he was thinking of wearing a protective cup to prevent a bad-hop injury.
''You'll definitely see me going down to one knee to field base hits,'' Pierre said.
``It's [the playing surface] probably the worst I've seen it since I've been here.''
He has NEVER worn a cup? Don’t these guys value their parts?

Michael Irvin versus Brett Favre …
Irvin contends, Favre stuck his nose where it didn't belong — and Packers receiver Javon Walker will pay a hefty price for it.
"Now, this is a story here," said Irvin, the former star receiver for the University of Miami and Dallas Cowboys. "This boy (Walker) came back into camp because of Brett Favre. The great Brett Favre. This is not some rookie quarterback calling him out when he was asking for his money. This is the great Brett Favre."
"I love Brett, I appreciate Brett. But Brett should know business is business," said Irvin, who was at Dolphins camp on Thursday for a ESPN feature. "You don't mess with another man's business.
"Now, what do you do, Brett? If I'm Brett, how you can walk in the room when you just did surgery to say, 'Hey, man, I'm sorry this has happened?' How could you do it? How could you look that man in his eyes?"
When asked Wednesday if he regretted his previous comments, Favre said no.
"I feel terrible about what happened because it doesn't help our team any," said Favre, who makes upward of $10 million a year. "But he's young. It's hard for him to believe it right now, but I promise you, he'll come back better. His contract situation will take care of itself. I still think he'll make a lot of money."
So, let me get this straight. Javon Walker signs a deal. Doesn’t like it. Holds out of mini-camp. Complains. Favre tells him to shut up and get to camp. Walker does. Gets hurt. And Favre is the bad guy? Sports are screwed up. Oh well, Irvin is going in the Ring of Honor tomorrow night.

And finally, sometimes I am asked what sport I followed most closely when I was growing up. Usually, the answer was football. But, a close 2nd can be seen in one picture below:
