ESPN's Joe Schad tweeted former Oklahoma State sophomore QB Wes Lunt will "take some time" on his decision between Illinois and Louisville.

Lunt has recently visited both schools but has spent a larger amount of time with the Illini in the form of two trips to Champaign and meeting with former NFL quarterback Jeff George, a graduate from the school. Add on the fact that Lunt is from Illinois, and it is obvious why they have been the favorites all along. However, we think the longer this decision lasts, the better chance it gives Louisville.

Florida ambassador and consultant Steve Spurrier said that redshirt junior QB Luke Del Rio will start in 2016.

Spurrier accepted a job consulting for the Gators earlier in the week. He wasted little time in making his presence felt. "Let’s give these guys a chance to play and hopefully one of them will emerge as a top-flight player that everybody can get behind," Spurrier said during a conference call. "I know Del Rio seems to be the starter; he is the starter now. We’ll see how it all works out." It was somewhat expected that Del Rio would eventually win the job, but HC Jim McElwain had yet to actually name a starter, so Spurrier stepped a little off-script on this one. If McElwain wanted to go in a different direction, Austin Appleby -- formerly of Purdue -- is the most likely candidate to offer a contest to Del Rio's now-assumed supremacy.

Speaking at Mountain West Media Days, Boise State HC Bryan Harsin indicated that he does not put stock in the high preseason predictions for the Broncos.

"Hopefully we’re undefeated," Harsin said. "I hope everything you guys [in the media] say happens. But it doesn’t mean anything right now because we haven’t done anything." In the Mountain West media's preseason poll, Boise State was predicted to win the Mountain Division by 27 of 29 writers. Air Force siphoned off the two remaining first-place ballots, with San Diego State earning all 29 first-place votes to win the West Division. The Broncos showed flashes of beauty last season, but fell victim to several puzzling losses on their way to a 9-4 finish. The team is not dancing around the disappointment, with senior LB Ben Weaver saying, "The chip on our shoulder has increased tremendously, especially losing two games at home. It wasn’t our standard last year, and we all know that."

Rivals' Gene Williams reports that FSU sophomore S Derwin James underwent a minor surgery to repair a fracture in his foot.

According to Williams, James had the surgery two weeks ago. His initial timetable had him missing 4-5 weeks, meaning that he could be able to participate to some degree when preseason camp boots up on August 9, with Williams relaying that a full recovery is expected by the second week of practices. Barring a setback, the 6-foot-1, 199-pound defensive wizard should be ready for the Seminoles' opening showdown with Ole Miss on September 3. As a true freshman, James registered 91 tackles (9.5 for loss), 4.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries. He could be in line for a monster 2016 campaign so long as he stays healthy.

AAC commissioner Mike Aresco said that his conference is "contingency planning for just about every scenario [in terms of Big 12 expansion]."

After the Big 12 initially announced their plans for expansion in mid-July, Aresco said that he and the rest of the conference were "tun[ing] out the distractions." Those distractions became much, much more distracting this week, when CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd reported that the Big 12 wanted to complete the expansion process by the beginning of the season. "I’ve been talking to the [athletic directors] and the president of the schools that might leave, and it looks like some of them will," Aresco said. "We’re talking to each other and trying to figure out the future. We expect everyone who leaves will leave on good terms." Houston, Memphis, Cincinnati, USF and UCF are among the AAC teams rumored to be considering a jump.

Texas A&M suspended two assistant coaches for two weeks without pay for "degrading comments towards women" in a Thursday slideshow at the program's annual "Chalk Talk for Women."

Aggies HC Kevin Sumlin handed down the punishments, which included 20 hours of community service, to OL coach Jim Turner and special-teams coordinator/TE coach Jeff Banks. This is Turner's second brush with infamy. The Dolphins' OL coach during the Jonathan Martin hazing scandal was fired by Miami in February 2014 for "poor judgment." Thursday's controversy revolves around a song that was in poor taste. "We want to sincerely apologize to the passionate Aggie fans and to women everywhere for our failed attempt at humor during this week's Aggie football Chalk Talk and fundraiser," the coaches said in a joint statement.

CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd reports that the Big 12 would like to wrap up the expansion process before the start of the season.

Dodd relays that according to three people with knowledge of the situation, "the Big 12 doesn't want expansion to overshadow the league's football season with a drawn-out process that would extend into the 2016 campaign." When CBS Sports reached out to conference commissioner Bob Bowlsby for comment, he declined to put a potential timetable to the proceedings. If Dodd's report proves accurate, pieces figure to rapidly start to fall into place over the coming weeks. Looking at the near future, AAC Media Days are set for Monday and Tuesday. With multiple rumored Big 12 targets residing in the AAC, it figures to be a fun few days for gossip. Probably less so for the assembled coaches and players.

Alabama received a verbal commitment from four-star 2017 WR Jerry Jeudy.

One has to wonder if blossoming star wideout Calvin Ridley might have been whispering in Jeudy's ear down the stretch. Ridley and Jeudy were teammates at Monarch High when the former was a senior and the latter a freshman. "It's the best fit for me," said the 6-foot-2, 175-pounder. "I felt like Alabama was home for me, and they have had good receivers from South Florida go there" Former supernova WR Amari Cooper would also fit that South Florida bill that Jeudy is referring to. While he showed inconsistency at times during the spring and summer camp circuit -- Rivals recruiting director Mike Farrell termed his performance at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge to be that of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde -- there is no denying Jeudy's overall level of talent. On the ESPN 300, he checks in at No. 26 overall. Probably needless to say, the Alabama machine is building a monster 2017 class. They have already received commitments from 11 ESPN 300 prospects.

Former South Carolina, Duke and Florida head coach has joined Florida's athletic department as an Ambassador and Consultant.

We doubt this will cut into Spurrier's tee times. The ball coach is returning to his "home" with the Gators, and you can expect to see him on sideline shots in fancy boxes shaking hands and mingling with top donors. It certainly seems like his coaching days are over.

An AFC college scouting director says LSU junior RB Leonard Fournette is "a bad dude."

"Big, fast, nimble, runs with aggression," he said. "You watch a (Adrian) Peterson and see Gurley and talk about how rare they are, and two years later here comes another one. … And [FSU junior Dalvin] Cook is extremely dynamic. Those two are really good. It’s a (Ricky) Williams/(Edgerrin) James type of year, and the other kids are good too. You’re seeing a rebirth of the position." MMQB noted that Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey may be a third 2016 first-rounder from the group, while Georgia’s Nick Chubb could be fourth if he's healthy. The RB crop is so incredibly deep that Oregon’s Royce Freeman and Tennessee’s Jalen Hurd head into the season almost as afterthoughts.

Future CFB Playoff semifinals will either be played on a Saturday or on a holiday.

The semifinals this past season were both played on New Year's Eve and cratered in terms of ratings. Playoff executive director Bill Hancock said in a statement, "We tried to do something special with New Year’s Eve, even when it fell on a weekday. But after studying this to see if it worked, we think we can do better." Of note, several future semifinals will still be played on New Year's Eve -- those that happen to fall on Saturdays (2016, 2021, 2022). In total, four future semifinal dates (2018, 2019, 2024 and 2025) were shifted to accommodate the scheduling tweak.

USF received a verbal commitment from four-star 2017 ATH Bruce Judson.

This time last year, Judson was espousing the virtues of Ohio State, going so far as to say that he was "100%" going to stick to his pledge with the Buckeyes. That didn't pan out. The 5-foot-9, 184-pounder backed off from Ohio State after HC Urban Meyer asked him "Who are you?" during a campus visit last summer. Regardless, South Florida earned a huge commitment here. Scout.com refers to him as "[o]ne of the top playmakers in the state of Florida" and notes that he could play running back, slot wideout or corner at the next level.
