A heaping helping of headlines for you.

"A lot of people said I left because I was scared of competition, but you're going to have competition in Division I football," Threet said. "If you look at when I transferred to Michigan, Ryan Mallett was here, and it's not like the cupboard is bare at Arizona State. It's Division I college football, and you're going to compete. If you're guaranteed a spot, then you're probably not at a good team. I just wanted a place where I fit the offense and the coaches could develop me."
