National news: High-definition televisions are coming to instant replay booths this season in the Southeastern, Big Ten, Big 12 and possibly the Atlantic Coast conferences

Five factors that could sink conference expansion. Talk of Big Ten and Pacific10 expansion creates tension among other conferences. The most intriguing candidate for Big Ten expansion is Rutgers.  Expansion may force Notre Dame's hand.

Under Big 12 rules, Colorado must give two years notice if it plans to withdraw from the league and would forfeit 50% of its conference distribution for both years, according to the Boulder Daily Camera.

Another bowl game has popped up with The Pinstripe Bowl and there is a chance that there are not enough teams to fill the 74 spots.

Tyler Shreve, a quarterback from Redlands, California might be off the team before even arriving on campus.  The Utah Utes had 21 scouts visit for Monday's Pro Day.  Utah's focus this spring is revamping its defense, which lost several starters.
