Texas junior QB David Ash "had some after-effects" from his second head injury of the season suffered against BYU and Kansas State.

The first was called a concussion, while the second was never given that title. Ash has been sidelined since, and we wonder if Ash's career might be over. There are things more important than football, and we are wishing Ash well from a health perspective. Case McCoy will start against Oklahoma next weekend.

Auburn junior RB Roc Thomas will transfer.

There were conflicting reports last week as to whether Thomas was looking to move on from Auburn. No more confusion -- Thomas will transfer. In a statement, HC Gus Malzahn said, "Roc Thomas has asked for his release from Auburn and I have granted his request. We wish him nothing but the best moving forward." In that initial jumble of earlier reports, Auburnsports.com's Jay G. Tate had reported that the 5-foot-11, 202-pounder was looking to transfer to Jacksonville State. SEC Country's Brandon Marcello backed up that assertion after news of Thomas' transfer broke on Tuesday, though nothing is official yet. Last season, Thomas accrued 261 yards and a touchdown on the ground while catching 11 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown. He worked as both a slot receiver and running back this spring.

Horns Digest's Chip Brown reports that the Big 12 will not be expanding or launching a conference television network in 2016.

Big 12 presidents and chancellors are scheduled to meet in Dallas next week, but all of the noise about expansion and a television network might have been just that -- noise. According to Brown's report, there simply hasn't been enough agreement as to what non-Power 5 team to invite to the conference. Houston, Memphis, Cincinnati, Boise State and BYU were just a few of the teams rumored to be in the expansion mix. As for the reported decision not to gun for a possible Big 12 network, Brown wrote that "the league’s primary TV partners - ESPN and Fox - aren’t exactly knocking down doors right now to start a conference network with the current 10 schools." While that makes for two big-ticket items that likely won't appear on the Big 12 agenda, Brown does hear that the possibility of a title game could be kicked around down in Dallas.

At the SEC spring meetings, Arkansas HC Bret Bielema reiterated his belief that undrafted underclassmen should retain their eligibility.

"The NFL doesn't want players too early that aren't ready. And the NCAA, us guys, don't want [players] to leave too early. It makes too much sense to not have it happen," Bielema said. He made this same point shortly after the draft. Bielema and Alabama HC Nick Saban are in favor of an "underclassman combine" of some variety after the close of the regular season. "If (an underclassman) could sit down with NFL people or personnel people that are making the decisions firsthand," Bielema said, "I think it could be a great resource. And you know what? It works out better for everybody. Graduation rates to go up. Success rates go up." In this most recent draft, 96 players who declared early went undrafted.

At the SEC spring meetings, Alabama HC Nick Saban went on a five-minute diatribe against satellite camps.

"There have been no specific guidelines relative to how we're managing control of this stuff," Saban said. "It's happening outside the normal evaluation window, which means we're taking time away from our players." He stressed that this is not a Jim Harbaugh issue -- Harbaugh is a supporter of satellite camps -- but rather a wider issue. "Harbaugh can do whatever he wants to do if he thinks that's what's best. There needs to be somebody who looks out for what's best for the game, not the SEC or the Big Ten or Jim Harbaugh," he said. Saban is in favor of a college football commissioner, but would not offer a candidate for the position, saying, "I'm not into politics."

Tennessee HC Butch Jones said at the SEC spring meetings that he is "proud of the culture that we have built."

Eight unnamed women have filed a Title IX lawsuit against Tennessee and Jones was asked to compare his program's situation with that of Baylor. "I'm not into comparisons. All I can speak on is the University of Tennessee. I feel strongly as everybody in our organization that we've done the right things," he said. Jones went on to explain his program's process in recruiting, saying that they "try to be as proactive as possible" with background checks. "Make no mistake about it: The first thing in our recruiting profile is character."

South Carolina senior LB Skai Moore will have surgery to repair a disc in his neck and will miss the 2016 season.

Moore is the star of South Carolina's defense and one of the most talented linebackers in the country. Moore's injury did not heal as the staff and team had hoped, so surgery is the result. The plan is for Moore to redshirt the season and return to the field in 2017 for the Gamecocks, however, Moore flirted with the NFL after last season, so that should be under consideration. There was talk of Moore playing a hybrid safety role for the Gamecocks in Will Muschamp's first season.

Addressing the NCAA Notice of Allegations against Ole Miss, HC Hugh Freeze said that "there's a big difference between making mistakes in recruiting and going out there with the intent to cheat."

"I don't have any information that anybody on my staff has been involved in any illegal payments to players or offering any inducements to players," Freeze said, "and if I did have that information, I would fire them." Four of the eight Level 1 violations levied against Ole Miss by the NCAA allegedly occurred under Freeze's watch. He insisted no ill-intent. "Have we made mistakes in recruiting? Yes, and we've taken steps to make sure we don't make those same mistakes again. But to say me or anybody on my staff is out there cheating to gain advantage just isn't true."

Baylor AD Ian McCaw resigned.

In a statement released by Baylor on Monday, McCaw said, "My time at Baylor has been an incredible journey filled with some of the most remarkable people I have ever known." He indicated that "a change in athletics department leadership is in Baylor University's best interest in order to promote the unity, healing and restoration that must occur in order to move forward." McCaw -- who helped the Bears settle on interim HC Jim Grobe before tendering his resignation -- had served as Baylor's athletic director since 2003. No interim AD has been named as of this posting.

Former Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe will be announced as Baylor's interim head coach for the 2016 season, according to 247 Sports.

The report adds "the remainder of Baylor's coaching staff are expected to stay intact for the 2016 season." Grobe resigned from Wake Forest in 2013 after coaching with the program since 2001. Perhaps the school realized promoting defensive coordinator Phil Bennett was the wrong move, as all eyes are on a program that handled sexual assault allegations horrendously, with the coaching staff at the center of attention. On the field, Grobe is known for his defense and producing winning programs despite possessing "lesser talent."

Renfro took to Twitter with a lengthy post explaining his decision to step away from the Huskies.

"Everyday [sic] it’s very hard for me to just do a simple thing like get myself out of bed in the morning." He went on to say that he had lost his passion for football. As a freshman in 2015, the former three-star recruit made 13 catches for 178 yards.

Baylor four-star 2016 T J.P. Urquidez will not enroll in classes on Monday.

Urquidez announced his decision not to enroll via Twitter. While the 6-foot-6, 300-pound tackle will not be joining the rest of Baylor's 2016 class in enrolling in courses on Monday, there is no word as of yet as to whether he is asking for a release from his letter of intent. He ranked as ESPN 300's No. 164 prospect for the last cycle. Since HC Art Briles' firing on Thursday, four members of the 2017 recruiting class have backed off their commitments and at least three players from the 2016 class looking to be released from their letters of intent (per ESPN).
