San Jose State senior QB David Fales completed 37 of 45 attempts for 547 yards and six touchdowns in the school's 62-52 win over Fresno State.

Fales drew a lot of preseason praise thanks to his tendency to work through progressions and stick to the pocket. However, Fales lost some accompanying talent to the NFL and injury, but he showed everything you want in this game. Many will say he doesn't have the arm to consistently test defenses vertically, but he can make throws to the outside on occasion.

Auburn coach Gus Malzahn told ESPN's Numbers Never Lie that he hasn't yet decided on a punishment for senior QB Nick Marshall.

Marshall received a citation for marijuana possession earlier this month. "He'll have some things he'll have to pay for," Malzahn said Monday on the television show. "I have not decided that for sure right now, but it will be in a short period of time I'll have that figured out." Malzahn called Marshall "the face of the program" who, prior to the incident, had "been a model student, citizen, all of the above." Jeremy Johnson will take over if Marshall is suspended for any length of time, and Malzahn believes he is NFL-caliber. "(Johnson is) another outstanding quarterback I think will play at the next level," he said. "He played two games last year and was the SEC Offensive Freshman of the Week. We're in good shape there."

TCU senior WR Brandon Carter is unlikely to play this season, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

TCU head coach Gary Patterson said Carter "probably will not play this year. Academically he will not make it." Carter was arrested in April on possession of marijuana; charges were later dropped. Patterson's response to a question about whether he wanted Carter to stick around the school to regain eligibility was ominous. "No. He has a redshirt year and I think the best thing for him is to get a new start," he said. "It's setting a precedent - you have to go to school." Carter was a five-star recruit who caught 90 passes for 1,312 yards with nine touchdowns over the past three seasons. His NFL prospects are precarious at best.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn said senior Nick Marshall is the first returning starting QB in his eight years as a college coach.

This is remarkable. Obviously Malzahn had a National Championship winning season with Cam Newton and took Nick Marshall and Auburn to the same game in his first season as the Tigers' head coach last year. Marshall seemed to improve as a passer as the season went along, but the focus is running the ball with play action off of it.

Oklahoma State HC Mike Gundy told reporters JUCO OW transfer Tyreek Hill will receive 15-20 touches per game.

It has been said that Hill will play the Percy Harvin/Tavon Austin role for the Cowboys this season, seeing time as a receiver and ball carrier. The Junior College transfer has junior eligibility, and he is already getting billed as the Big 12's newcomer of the year.

At Big 12 Media Days, Kansas HC Charlie Weis said teams playing without a mobile QB means they are playing with 10 men versus 11.

It is an interesting idea and something that many college teams are definitely implementing, in some cases sacrificing passing ability for mobility. It really is up to what the team's head coach and/or offensive coordinator wants to implement. We think there are different types of mobile quarterbacks. For example, Jameis Winston is not an agile ball carrier, but he is very aware and evasive in the pocket. Obviously it is ideal to find a quarterback that combines both skills, but the Andrew Lucks and the Cam Newtons are rare.

FSU redshirt sophomore QB Jameis Winston acknowledged criticism with his throwing motion and is working to shorten it.

"This year I will be holding the ball higher so I won't be so elongated," Winston said. Some reporters noted the quarterback said his baseball career likely factors into his delivery. "Winston said he's worked on limiting off-balance throws -- in other words, not as much reliance on arm strength, but total body throws," CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler tweeted. Many are focused on Winston's throwing motion in regards to time, saying a defensive back could get a beat on his passes and defend them. While that might be true, the bigger change could come in the form of improved placement. Winston is by no means inaccurate, but many of his receivers adjusted to passes to come down with difficult catches.

LSU HC Les Miles said he is in no hurry to name a starting QB.

Sophomore Anthony Jennings took over for injured starter Zach Mettenberger during the final part of the 2013, but he is not locked in for the same gig this year. His top competition might be freshman Brandon Harris. This could be drawn out until LSU kicks off against Wisconsin on August 30.

FSU redshirt sophomore QB Jameis Winston told reporters he got up to 252 lbs following last year's awards circuit and has since dropped 20 lbs.

As for next year's offseason? "Only salads," Winston told Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman. Every single one of Winston's steps will be critiqued and criticized, but we are not worried about this development. Winston stayed busy during the offseason as a member of FSU's bullpen. He is not an overly mobile quarterback outside of the pocket, and has plenty of awareness combined with great eye level to evade rushers between the tackles.

The Idaho Statesman reports that Idaho head coach Paul Petrino has dismissed senior WR Dezmon Epps for "violating team rules."

"We have the highest standards and expectations for our players as student-athletes and citizens," Petrino said in a statement. "We clearly outline the consequences when these expectations are not met." The Vandals prospect was arrested on a DUI charge back in April and sentenced to a day in jail, with two years on probation. Epps was the Vandals' best playmaker, as he led the team with 79 catches for 980 yards and 4 touchdowns and was also their primary punt returner.

Clemson senior edge rusher Vic Beasley spent the offseason preparing for the NFL and plans to drop into coverage more often in 2014.

The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder said Sunday at the ACC Kickoff media event he would like to play at 240 this fall. "Any size I put on will be beneficial," he said. When asked what he had worked on the most this offseason, Beasley said "dropping back into coverage." He'll transition to 3-4 outside linebacker at the next level. NFL.com's Bucky Brooks wrote that Beasley could "thrive in a Von Miller-like role" in the NFL, adding that Beasley is a more natural pass rusher than former top 10 picks Dion Jordan and Barkevious Mingo. The Clemson prospect returned for his senior year after receiving a 2nd-round grade from the NFL Advisory Committee. Beasley had 23 tackles for a loss in addition to 13 sacks in 2013.

Louisville senior edge rusher Lorenzo Mauldin said a big reason he wanted to shift to linebacker next season was that "it helps me with the NFL scouts."

Louisville is transitioning to a 3-4 defensive alignment under new defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. "He's talked to me about what I need to do, what I need to learn, what the scouts are looking for," Mauldin said, while mentioning he will be playing "the Jarvis Jones position." Mauldin will provide a perfect attacking presence from the outside, an ability Mauldin himself calls an "all-natural gift." Interestingly, both Mauldin and Marcus Smith, who combined for 24 sacks and 30.5 tackles for loss as one of the nation's best DE duos last year, will play OLB in 2014; Smith was drafted in Round 1 by the Eagles in May. "All of us have aspirations about playing in the league ... and making big money," Mauldin said.
