Will there ever be another NCAA football video game?

It's in the game? Not anytime soon, apparently. Despite the rumors that NCAA football games are on their way back, industry insiders and school execs say there's no cheat code to get them back.

Oregon running back Royce Freeman is not taking UC Davis lightly. He said he's approaching this season opener as a national title game.

One of the biggest surprises of the Oregon depth chart was true freshman CB Brenden Schooler, who didn't get much ink during the first few weeks of fall camp but landed in the two deep. Secondary coach John Neal said his speed and athleticism made the 6-foot-2 freshman stand out.

Oregon has 10 freshmen in the two deep (redshirt and true). Oregon coach Mark Helfrich said he's hoping those guys play like they've practiced, specifically true freshmen Troy Dye (first string SAM) and Brenden Schooler (second string CB).

Miami will likely start three freshmen linebackers Saturday, and they all might be true freshmen. Mark Richt said it's important all three true freshmen enrolled in January, which gave them an extra five months on campus and put them on the same footing as everyone else learning a new defense. "It's not like the rest of the defense had heard it before," he said. One concern he said will be adjusting to the bigger stage, but the Hurricanes open with FCS Florida A&M.

Oregon coach Mark Helfrich knows there's not a lot of experience in the Ducks' front seven (add to that a new scheme under new DC Brady Hoke), but he said he hopes the group plays "recklessly disciplined" on Saturday in the season opener. Expect a lot of rotation with that group. Helfrich said every player in the two deep there will get a lot of reps.

I asked Steve Spurrier today if I was ever going to be writing about him as a new selection committee member for the College Football Playoff. "Doubt it, doubt it," he said. Why? "Well, first you've gotta be asked." True. Spurrier wasn't on the short list in the latest round of replacements but could be in the future. He added he hasn't given it much thought, but likes the CFP and thinks it will eventually expand to eight.

Ryan Burns surprised many when he beat out Keller Chryst for the starting QB job at Stanford. Coach David Shaw pointed to two mental areas Tuesday where Burns eclipsed Chryst: pre-snap reads and post-snap decision-making. While both 6-foot-5, 230 pounders look the part — and Chryst was the 2015 backup — it shouldn't be surprising that the QB decision at Stanford comes down to brains rather than big arms or mobility.

I spoke with UC Davis coach Ron Gould yesterday. He said he has been very impressed with the offensive skill positions the Ducks could employ. He joked: "Is there any way you could call Coach Helfrich and have him sit some of those guys down? That young man who just got back from the Olympics. They've got five tailbacks that could all start at other places in the Pac-12 and SEC."

When Josh Rosen showed up to UCLA training camp sporting a mustache, it created a surprising amount of online chatter. Such is life for one of college football's fastest rising superstars. On Tuesday, Rosen explained the whole idea behind the mustache was to "make it as terrible as possible."

Stanford head coach David Shaw said the expectations on running back Christian McCaffrey have never been higher: "It's not that he doesn't notice them, it's that he doesn't care ... I love how steady he is, regardless of what the outside world tries to put on his shoulders because he only carries his own expectations."

Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre says QB Sefo Liufau (recovering from a Lisfranc fracture from last year) had an outstanding camp and they didn't need to hold him out of any days during fall camp. He called Liufau's recovery "a small miracle." Buffs open the season Friday against Colorado State.
