Hit the jump for more.

DT Aubrey Solomon (Tennessee): Solomon made 1 tackle in a 35-12 win over Missouri.

OG Stephen Spanellis (Vanderbilt): Spanellis opted out of the 2020 season.

CB Te’Cory Couch (Miami): Miami (3-0) had a bye.

CB Shaun Crawford (Notre Dame): Notre Dame (2-0) had a bye.

TE Nick Patterson (Choate Rosemary Hall): Patterson, who decommitted from Michigan and signed with Princeton, decided to take a prep year and enroll at Choate Rosemary Hall in Connecticut. That would make him a teammate of class of 2021 Michigan commit Tristan Bounds, though with Connecticut football being canceled, I’m not sure if Patterson is truly there or not.

Amauri Pesek-Hickson (Kansas): Pesek-Hickson did not play in a 47-7 loss to Oklahoma State.

They let Kentucky QB Terry Wilson complete 77% of his passes, and three Wildcats players ran for 100+ yards on the way to 408 total rushing yards.

Les Miles (Head Coach, Kansas): Kansas dropped to 0-3 with a 47-7 loss to Oklahoma State. Kansas is getting outscored by an average of 44 to 14.7.

Chris Partridge (C-Defensive Coordinator, Ole Miss): Partridge’s defense, coincidentally, suffered the same exact fate as Durkin’s (see above).

    Sounds like Woods has emerged as a key contributor. Good for him.

    Black seems to be slipping down the depth chart. They eyes of Texas (and obsessive Michigan fans) are upon him.

    Am I the only one who looks at say Solomon (who left unhappily) very differently than grad transfers like Spanellis and Woods looking for more playing time? We need a different classification for the Michigan Men (Hail!) who went on to other things vs the guys who leave because they’re mad (Bail!). Though I do recognize there will be more cases like McCaffrey and Peters and Black that fall in the hail/bail gray area with expanded eligibility freedoms.

    Les Miles struggling away from LSU is completely expected to many. Still can’t believe people the number of people who wanted him in Ann Arbor.

    Sounds like Muhammed and Spanellis “updates” aren’t going to be interesting.

    I remember Gray as the guy I preferred to Charbonnet, due to size. But Charbonnet won me over after a strong freshman year. Seems like it might be a case where everyone won.
