Former Alabama redshirt junior C Brandon Kennedy transferred to Tennessee as a graduate.

Upon Kennedy's announcement that he'd transfer as a graduate last month, the Tide barred him from transferring to any SEC school. That drew some national ire, which in turn fired up Nick Saban, who said he was merely abiding by conference rule. For better or worse, the decision is now out of Saban's hands -- and will be, going forward. The SEC adopted a new rule on June 1 stating that grad transfers can transfer within the conference without sitting out a year. A four-star 2015 signee, Kennedy (6'3/301) was the Crimson Tide's top backup center in 2017 before an injury knocked him out for the year. As he reunites with HC Jeremy Pruitt, Kennedy is in the mix to play immediately. He has two years of eligibility left.

Texas redshirt senior RB Tre Watson (knee) has been given full medical clearance.

Watson (5'10/190) had previously been working only as a limited participant in preseason camp. The Cal transfer has been rehabbing from a torn ACL which he suffered last September. Now that he's been given the medical green light to intensify his work in practice, he can begin -- in earnest -- the process of securing a sizable role with the team. He'll be competing with Toneil Carter and Daniel Young for the remainder of camp as Texas readies for its season-opener against a suddenly-embattled Maryland program.

Northwestern redshirt senior QB Clayton Thorson (knee) was an active participant in Tuesday's practice.

Thorson (6'4/220) is still being moved along with caution by Wildcats HC Pat Fitzgerald and staff, but we're beginning to see clear signs that the team is at least attempting to get him in fighting shape for their opener against Purdue on Aug. 30. According to Inside NU's team on-site in Evanston on Tuesday, Thorson "looked comfortable in the pocket," worked the read-option and put in a few scrambles during his drillwork. We'll continue to monitor this situation closely as camp progresses toward its end game. Should Thorson be unable to take the field versus the Boilermakers, the task would fall to one of TJ Green, Aidan Smith or Andrew Marty.

Maryland fired strength and conditioning coach Rick Court.

Court is the first coach to receive his walking papers in the wake of the death of OL Jordan McNair and a bombshell ESPN report released last Friday which detailed numerous alleged abuses and mistreatments of players. He had earlier been placed on administrative leave. It has been determined that McNair passed away due to heat stroke -- his internal body temperature spiked at 106 degrees -- as a result of a late May workout. We would not be surprised to see other staff members likewise lose their jobs in relation to the questionable culture which has arisen under HC D.J. Durkin. Durkin, himself, is currently on paid leave while Maryland investigates the troubling allegations surrounding the program.

Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh said of his team's quarterback competition, "None of them have given in. None of them have dropped off, so it rages on."

Harbaugh said that he'd like to name a starter "sooner rather than later." While this still ostensibly remains a competition between Shea Patterson and Brandon Peters (with Dylan McCaffrey, Joe Milton and Jeff George Jr. on the periphery), all indications to this juncture have Ole Miss transfer Patterson tracking toward the opener versus Notre Dame as likely starter. Multiple members of the team have openly talked about how Michigan has been expanding their passing offense to a more wide-open attack this month, which would fit to Patterson's skill set.

Bowling Green redshirt senior DE David Konowalski is expected to miss the upcoming season due to a torn Achilles tendon.

Konowalski (6'3/241) sustained the brutal Achilles tear during a recent practice. It's a major loss for HC Mike Jinks rebuilding Falcons crew, as the redshirt senior is an upperclassman leader and starter. He led Bowling Green in sacks last season, albeit needing just 3 1/2 quarterback takedowns to pace the team. He also posted 56 total tackles. Roland Walder could potentially be in for an expanded role now that Konowalski has been ruled out for the campaign.

Colorado State HC Mike Bobo is undergoing tests at a local hospital after he recently began to feel numbness in his feet.

Bobo spoke with doctors following Saturday's scrimmage and it was recommended that he check into the hospital for observation and tests. In a statement, the Rams head coach said, "I feel very encouraged by the test results to this point and hope to have some answers soon." It does not appear that CSU has plans to put an acting head coach in place, which would hopefully indicate that Bobo's going to be back in fighting shape in the very near future. The team is working with something of a shortened preseason runway, as they will be playing a "Week 0" matchup with Hawaii a week from Saturday. If Bobo requires time off impacting the regular season, we'll pass along word as information becomes available.

The SEC has granted Florida redshirt junior WR Van Jefferson immediate eligibility for the coming season.

After Jefferson -- who transferred over to Florida from Ole Miss this winter -- was granted immediate eligibility by the NCAA at the beginning of the month, it looked more/less like a foregone conclusion that the SEC would likewise allow him to suit up this year. Check and check. The 6-foot-2, 192-pounder posted a 42-456-1 receiving line last season and adds to a Florida receiving corps which seems perpetually stocked with intriguing talent. Intrigue only counts for so much when you don't have a quarterback, unfortunately.

Ole Miss HC Matt Luke said that he expects junior WR A.J. Brown (hamstring) to be able to return to practice by week's end.

Brown (6'1/225) has been working his way through a hamstring injury for much of preseason camp to date. While the star junior wideout still has a little under three weeks to get healthy, any setback would potentially put his availability for the Rebs' opener against Texas Tech in question. Brown posted a 75-1253-11 receiving line last season. He's looking to put his best foot forward this year, his first in which he'll be eligible to declare for the NFL Draft.

Tulane redshirt senior WR Freddy Canteen (shoulder) will miss the season.

Tulane coach Willie Fritz said the shoulder injury occurred during Friday's practice. "Just diving for a ball," Fritz said. "Nothing that you don't do 100 times a week with different guys on the team." It's a devastating blow for Canteen, and the newest twist in his winding collegiate journey. A former member of Michigan and Notre Dame, Canteen missed most of last season with an injury to the same shoulder. Canteen could apply for the sixth year of eligibility. With his injury history, he'd seem to have a good shot. In the meantime, senior Terren Encalade (39 catches, 730 yards, four touchdowns last season) and junior Darnell Mooney (34-599-4) will continue to see most of the targets in Tulane's triple-option offense.

The Heart of Dallas Bowl has been rebranded the First Responder Bowl.

The bowl's new sponsor is SERVPRO, a company specializing in fire and water restoration services. In the last Heart of Dallas Bowl, played on Dec. 26, the Utah Utes beat the West Virginia Mountaineers 30-14.

Louisville redshirt sophomore WR Dez Fitzpatrick declared that Louisville's receivers can beat "every one" of Alabama's defensive backs in one-on-one coverage.

"Every receiver in our receiver corps can honestly beat every one of their DBs one-on-one in coverage," Fitzpatrick said. "It ties into the other stuff, if the blocks are right, if the quarterback’s drop is right, we ran eight-yard routes instead of a 10-yard route, that’s the kind of stuff I feel like we need to sharpen up. But I feel like straight talent-wise, I feel like we have the upper edge against their secondary, 1,000 percent." We've never minded some good old fashioned trash talking. But Fitzpatrick and crew better bring their A-games to Orlando on Sept. 1 for the opening-week tilt. The Tide are 25.5-point favorites.
