Gamecocks' Munnerlyn may be used as a reserve

COLUMBIA --- South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier says standout cornerback Captain Munnerlyn might not start against Ole Miss because of missed classes and weightlifting sessions.


Munnerlyn started 10 games a season ago and all five contests this year. However, Spurrier says he wants to get the junior's attention about going to class and attending scheduled workouts.

Spurrier doesn't expect this to be a lasting problem.

Sophomore Addison Williams is listed as a co-starter with Mun-nerlyn on this week's depth chart. Even if Munnerlyn doesn't start at Ole Miss, Spurrier says he'll see plenty of action.

VALDOSTA STATE: Players who knew Richard Collier during his college career took the news hard when told by coach David Dean that Collier had to have his left leg amputated.

Collier, who played at Valdosta State in 2004 and '05 and was in his third season with the Jacksonville Jaguars, was shot while sitting in a car on Sept. 2.

The Blazers began wearing his old No. 75 on their headgears when he was shot and will continue to wear the number.

TENNESSEE: Coach Phillip Fulmer expects to play both Jonathan Crompton and Nick Stephens at quarterback Saturday against Northern Illinois.

The Volunteers (1-3) are off to their worst start in 14 years and Crompton has struggled to get them into the end zone.

Even if Stephens doesn't practice well enough to start, offensive coordinator Dave Clawson wants to see him in a game.

Louisville: Quarterback Hunter Cantwell will be ready to go when the Cardinals play at Memphis on Oct. 10.

Cantwell injured his left ankle in the third quarter of Louisville's 26-21 loss to Connecticut last week when he was hit from behind while scrambling.
