Reporters' Notebooks

Brett McMurphy, Tampa Tribune: Big East commissioner Mike Tranghese said that although his league is interested in adding a ninth football-only member, there isn't a viable option available. Plus a look at the Big East's turnaround that has proved doomsayers wrong.

David Chanen and Chip Scoggins, Minneapolis Star-Tribune: This is truly disturbing. A teammate used a cell phone to record video of Minnesota cornerback Dominic Jones allegedly raping a woman who had passed out after drinking too much, according to charges filed Monday.

Barry Jackson, Miami Herald: Miami freshman quarterback Robert Marve injured his left (non-throwing) hand when a car he was in flipped on Interstate 75 just north of Naples. He won't be ready to play until October. Two other teammates received minor injuries.

Dan Collins, Winston-Salem Journal: Wake Forest linebacker Eric Berry, a projected starter, has been declared academically ineligible.

Tom Witosky, Des Moines Register: A popular Iowa football replay show won't be shown on local cable affiliates this fall. It is a victim of the new Big Ten Network.

Tennessean: Tennessee released its 2009 schedule, which includes a visit to Knoxville from UCLA.

Tuscaloosa News: A third Alabama player has been arrested and is facing charges after an altercation in front of a bar just off campus early Saturday.

Associated Press: Texas A&M, following a move earlier this month by Michigan, is switching from Nike to Adidas.

And here is today's mystery link.

ALLEGED rape, and the video was of the defendant ejaculating on the victim, no raping her.
