08:29 AM ET 08.04 | Besides Wisconsin starter David Gilbert, we hear Miami is poised to add two other defensive linemen from FBS schools, pending academic clearance: Ernest Settles (who had 12.5 sacks last season for a Tampa high school but was thrown off the Nebraska team in June, before enrolling, for allegedly hitting a teammate in the head with a bottle at a party) and Virginia tackle Justin Renfro, a solid run stopper who would be eligible to play for UM this season. Renfro was a backup at UVA and has only 18 career tackles but played well when needed.

Mornin' DC. Quiet, slow, and bucolic. Got one (1) river irrigation this season. Ground water being sucked up at an alarming rate by the pecan growers and other farmers. Drought and excessive extraction have already shut down numerous wells up by Rincon. Not a good sign.

Is Miami becoming the back-up school for kids with issues at other schools?

I doubt the NCAA will even have any jurisdiction over the current FCS schools by time they get around to meting out their punishment.
